Like I said- I’m not gonna say I’ll get better at a blogging schedule. I am very certain I won’t get to a schedule until after I graduate- so when that happens- BE READY. Blogs on blogs on blogs.
So this is just an update on my life the past few months.
I have 64 days left until my last day of classes! (YAYYY!).
Dawgs for Diabetes is going UHMAZING.
Here’s our end of semester newsletter from December.
Dawgs for Diabetes also represented the College Diabetes Network on CNN Accent Health– and it was EVERYWHERE. It’s in doctor’s offices currently, it played on various news stations, and it was online. CRAZY. So glad that CDN was able to get this attention and reach more people!
About a week later, I was featured as one of UGA’s Amazing Students!
I had my graduation check/clearance, and I am good to go- Wait…. this is happening- four years have come and gone? It is hard to believe honestly.
Wait. there’s more- Yesterday my blog post about switching to a T-Slim was posted on the CDN Page.I meant every word- I LOVE my new pump! I am also liking my dexcom- but it is still a love hate relationship- blog post on the books about my feelings on always knowing my blood sugar.
That same day I had my interview for the Outstanding Senior Leaders Program- fingers crossed? I made the interviewers laugh multiple times- so I’d say that’s a good sign? On that note, Dawgs for Diabetes also applied for a TON of SOAR Awards (Student Organizations)- so fingers crossed for that.
Basically- these past few weeks have been a major dose of “Mindy get over your awkwardness with compliments and attention and don’t analyze it.” Because- that is what I do. I turn red. I want to hide. I start analyzing. So I’ve gotten better at taking compliments through all of this- and I appreciate everyone’s kind words. It’s still a serious struggled, and I don’t think people completely believe me. I get awkward and uncomfortable when people sing happy birthday to me. But- I know it’s all a confidence thing- which I am continually working on. For someone who had NO confidence coming into college- I faked it well, and I have come a long way in gaining confidence. Actually- in four years I have come a long way in general. WOAH.
There’s also so much stuff going on- Night of the Arts for Camp for a Cause, School of course, prepping for a new life transition, Hope Haven, etc etc. Blood sugars have kind of been all over the place. My gym is schedule is pretty back to normal. Yay. and juicing and my weird fiber smoothies- are happening- I also started drinking coconut water, and adding electrolyte tables to my water- this has all made a HUGE difference in my hydration- I always struggle to say hydrated- and I was drinking about 6 -32 ounce water bottles each day, plus other liquids (and not counting while working out)- which still was not enough. I now don’t have to drink as much, and I stay hydrated. YAY.
So. Like I said- so much going on! I am so excited for what is to come, and I am making sure to enjoy every moment while I can.
