This weekend was my college reunion, aka we got to stay over in the dorms and pretend that we were back in school with all of our closest friends right down the hallway whenever we got bored! This is like the adult version of Disney Land to us! #GoFriars
We enjoyed every minute of catching up, singing our favorite songs from college, imbibing at the bar on campus, and not thinking much about real life stressors like work or diabetes for a few short days. We truly needed this, judging by the smiles of joy on all of the alums’ faces for the entire weekend.
I have been fighting a fever / sore throat / mild ketones thing all week, and was losing my voice before I even stepped on campus. The responsible diabetic part of me felt a bit guilty that I was going to be staying up late dancing instead of dwelling at home in bed piled under blankets and sweating out the fever. But I decided that this weekend only comes around once every five years, so I better live in the moment unless there was a serious health problem going on, which thankfully was not the case. I did take some time out during the day on Saturday and Sunday to rest, but the evenings were reserved for my friends. The relief that this weekend provided in terms of being with my fellow alums and enjoying a mini-hiatus from grad school homework, et al., was so appreciated.
You didn’t win this weekend, Diabetes Guilt Monster! Channeling our favorite movie, Mean Girls, YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US!!!
