I’m really bad at this blogging thing, apparently. I let two years pass since my last post. (well.. two years less 5 days)
Well, I still have diabetes. Big surprise, right? I’m also still not a perfect pancreas. Still on insulin, and I still have my handy-dandy-super-duper-insulin pump in my pocket. But It’s going well. I forget a lot of things though. Like the fact that I have diabetes. Like the fact that I have to bolus for my meals. Like the fact that I have to check my blood sugar. You get busy in life. It’s natural, considering I’m working full time as a pancreas, a full time student (more on that later), have a part-time job, have obligations to my amazing lover (more on her later) and, well, only human, to forget about the little details like some finger pricks and correction boluses. My control has suffered and I want to make a better effort. But that will come.
So whats new?
I dropped out of Georgian College. It wasn’t working for me. Not hands on. But as i said before, I’m a full time student. I’m currently enrolled in Aircraft Maintenance Technician at Centennial College. I’m not upset about not being able to fly anymore. I’m going to fly but it won’t be my career. My career will be fixing those airplanes. I love getting my hands dirty. I’m working on airplanes, electrical systems, hydraulics, flight controls, avionics. And it is AWESOME! I absolutely love it. I love it so much that I’ve completely disregarded the fact that I have 9 classes per week. I’ll be graduating in May 2015 and then I’ll be starting a two year apprenticeship towards my licence. Its exciting. I could be working anywhere in the country (technically the continent, but I want to work in Canada). I can’t wait. Not only that, I’m among the top students in my class.
I read in my last post that I was talking to Jess again. Screw her. I found out she cheated on me, allegedly, with my best friend. Screw them both. I have no thoughts about him or her anymore. That was two years ago. I’d like to share with you a story of what happened in the months after my last posts:
I was heart broken. I started to move on, and started dating again. Forward to July, my best friend from Barrie came to New Brunswick to visit me. And it was amazing. Have you ever been a tourist in your own state or province? I never had. If I went into everything we did, I would probably crash WordPress servers. What comes to mind is the whale watching on a tall ship and the search for sea glass in the Atlantic ocean. Needless to say, though neither of us would admit it at the time, we were together. After a short two weeks, she was on a plane for Ontario. I decided to give up on policing and go back to Georgian. By the time I got to Barrie, she already had a boyfriend. This would not do. I wanted this girl. So I got a hotel room in Barrie, called her mother, and arranged a plan to win her over. She worked at subway at the time. And the day after I got to Barrie, she had to work. I went to her parent’s place, made them dinner, and took the spare set of keys for her car. I then went to a flower shop and bought some flowers to surprise her with in her car once she would have finished work. My car was still packed with all of my belongings including my guitar.. and cowboy hat. So I had her car lights flashing and I stood outside that Subway playing guitar for her. She noticed. The little old Chinese man who ran the convenience store in the same plaza was cheering “say yes! say yes!” and then she came out, wrapped me in a hug, and kissed me… on the cheek. Yes, on the cheeks. Miss faithful wouldn’t kiss me like she did in the summer because of her boyfriend. This would not do. He thought what I did was odd, but nonetheless he invited me over to his place for drinks and poker. It got late, I stayed over in a guest room, and he had to work in the morning. Her and I made out on his bed. I had her. Fast forward to now, and we are still together. Living together, in fact. I couldn’t be happier. We couldn’t be happier. I foresee a long future together. Her name? Sarah.
So that’s where I’m at two years later. I still have diabetes; I finally found what i want to do; I live with the love of my life.
