No D Day!

So today is the day. The No D Day. No Diabetes talk. Not on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or where ever else you love to talk online about your best friend for life, Diabetes. To see some awesome stories, go here and check out George, the guy who came up with this fantastic idea.

(For a little bit, I thought No D Day was supposed to be a little like Fight Club. The first rule of No D Day is that we don't talk about Diabetes. We don't say the word. It's really about finding out more about who a person is without Diabetes. But the thought made me laugh.)

So I anyone who has been reading about me already knows about my love for Rock Climbing (thus the blog name) and Ultimate Frisbee (the 10 or so discs on my wall shouldn't tip you off at all). You know I'm a giant science lover (but one who has social skills and can rock a dress), which is apparent from my 6 years of higher education for Biomedical Engineering with many more ahead of me. So what else don't you know?

I love to bake. Not cook. Because while I can whip up some delicious stuff with herbs and spices, my stomach really loves the satisfaction of good cookie or fresh pie crusts.
Apple Heart Pie!

Turtle Cheesecake

Pumpkin Pie from Real Pumpkins!

(Why don't I have pictures of my cookies? They all get eaten up too fast...)

Other cool things about me? While I don't sing nearly as much and as awesomely as Zooey Deschanel on the New Girl (if you're not watching it, you have to see the pilot!), I sing along to anything whether or not I know the words. I'll sing loudly and softly. In bed. In the shower. Especially in my car. I used to sing in the choir from grades 1 to 10, and then science took over my life (all those AP Classes saved me some time in undergrad). I'm thinking of joining some sort of casual singing group (in all my extra free time...). Also, despite not celebrating Christmas, I absolutely love Christmas carols. Once when I was in high school, I actually got to sing at Carnegie Hall with the NJ Children's choir. That was an incredible experience.

Other random tidbits?

I don't own a TV. If I did and I had cable, I might never get out from in front of it (happens with Netflix/Hulu sometimes).

I'm really lazy with certain chores. One time, I actually bought myself something to wear for 2/3 more days from Walmart because I had avoided doing laundry for 3-4 weeks.

I love filing my schedule to the brim. Back to back appointments 24/7 if I could. I like being busy, and I've learned to stop complaining about it. I can't handle the restlessness of having nothing to do. I've only recently started being more prompt for things. Otherwise, I'd always be running between 5 and 15 minutes late.

  1. Another person who sings along (and another non-Christian with a passion for Christmas carols)! Maybe we should start up a d-choir (or do Blünt Lancet for real)?
