I went to a meeting yesterday and one of the guys in my lab made banana bread for everyone. My mental reaction quickly progressed from :D! to … to :’(, because I LOVE banana bread especially good homemade stuff and I had run out the last of my Novolog pen at breakfast so I had to take my piece with me and eat it at home when I could grab another pen out of the fridge. I wrapped it up in a paper towel and put it in my bag, but it taunted me with its smell all day long. I hate when your food teases you. It’s my fault for not carrying more Novolog, but I didn’t want to risk the sky-high by eating the bread anyway and waiting the 8 hours til I got home.
In other news, I’m starting to look at graduate schools and it’s somewhat overwhelming. There’s a lot of good schools in Pennsylvania that have programs in what I’m interested in-- Penn State, UPenn, even staying at Pitt.–but there’s some really interesting programs at other schools that would require me to go further away. University of Virginia and University of Hawaii being two such options. I thought applying to colleges out of high school was stressful but this is crazy.
