Oh wow, a room inspection just happened with a dog and everything, and I didn’t pick up on anything but they spent a lot of time in that room across from mine… if they had stuff, they might have just gotten busted…


I smell trouble brewing

So… The Death Note anime was pretty great, especially the first half with L. (But dang, did that dude like his sweets! x.x) I’d love to talk about the show with you tomorrow, Bethany. :)

Why yes, this is the new iPhone. You’re required to make an hourly blood sacrifice to it in order to send texts.

I’m reblogging for the comment, made me laugh out loud :P

when your blood sugar’s too low and your friends ask if you’re okay

What is the hardest thing about having diabetes and being in college?



Here’s just a list of hard things.

In terms of blood glucose control:
- Stress on average is much higher than what I experienced in high school

- Sleep patterns were impossible for me to maintain. Each night was different.

- Caffeine. I had a ton of it.

- Exercise became hard to find time to do, and motivation to stay in shape plummeted.

- It’s hard resisting the good food if it’s served buffet style and you have a meal plan.

Mental side:

- I was in college already when I was diagnosed. Suddenly, felt significantly more alone and facing my own battles.

- People looked at me funny whenever I checked my blood sugars or adjusted my pump. To be expected as it is a deviant behavior, but still…

- I had a hard time because sweets were my comfort foods when I felt down, and I was feeling down because of my body’s non-digestion of sweets. Tough cycle to be locked into. Don’t feel guilty about the high numbers if things are tough to control. Diabetes + college = extra hard mode.


- Needing to pick up supplies at the pharmacy every so often was very annoying.

- Annoying taking 10 minutes of precious, precious time each day to change pump site when I could have been sleeping or something.

- Tougher to recognize hypoglycemia because sometimes you’re simply tired and hungry, though blood sugar levels are fine.

Hope that helps.


Coming Out Simulator 2014 - a half-true game about half-truths

Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.

There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.

Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.

Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves. 

this game made me cry omfg

I went ahead and played it. Very good…

Tried to do 1 hour of exercises at the gym today, but had to stop at 50 minutes because I was too nauseous to continue. Each time I checked my blood sugar, it was around 70… that might have been an issue. I tried to eat lots of glucose tabs… :/ Oh well. I pushed myself hard - 35 of those minutes was at a pretty high cardio-zone rate. I think I’m gonna do nothing short of pass out in my bed this evening at some point, as I’m also short on sleep… lol


I’m an atheist no i don’t hate religious people i don’t think they are stupid but it angers me when religion harms people and how religion plays in the public sphere sometimes.  


We are gathered here today because SOMEBODY *glares at coffin* couldn’t stay alive.

That Diabetes Grind

  • Me: *Hasn't eaten all day*
  • Blood Glucose Meter: 326
  • Me: I came out to have a good time and I'm honestly feeling so attacked right now.

I wish more people were willing to engage reasonably with opposing viewpoints. I love the internet, but perhaps the biggest weakness or even danger of it is how you can use it to exclusively surround yourself with views you agree with and make your mind so much less open to change and growth. It’s too easy to simply dismiss a voice simply because it goes against yours, then find voices that rally around yours as confirmation.

No voice should be silenced, no matter how ugly you personally find it. If it truly is ugly, the double-edged nature of free expression of thought should allow you to thoroughly tear it apart with logically-sound arguments. Take the time to do that, rather than tag the poster with a label and hiss and spit at them.

I guess I’m feeling like writing this because I ran across a couple posts on Tumblr today that (maybe jokingly) spoke about banning the expression of views they disagreed with. Along with the usual dramas of people calling each other disgusting.

Also, I’m not saying to constantly interact with people you disagree with. That’s stressful, to say the least. But, you know, maybe take a little bit of time each day to read an opposing viewpoint and reflect and try to understand how that viewpoint was likely formed. If you have good grounds for disagreeing with it, it shouldn’t feel threatening at all, and it could be a good opportunity to sharpen your approach to counterarguments, at least. And if you take the time to try to understand the reasoning of those you disagree with, it’s more difficult for anger and disgust to form - and I believe positive change is much more easily achieved in the absence of such emotions.

Idk… so much of this website just feels like one big mud-slinging at times. I can’t remember the last time I saw an exchange that didn’t have some form of caps or biting sarcasm or mere displays of mutual disgust. All this said, if you disagree with what I’m saying - I’m willing to hear you out. :P


Sometimes it can feel like a losing battle!

Rowed 5km at the gym today… much farther than I’ve gone before. Took 24 minutes. My arms are sore, lol…
