48 things and more

I haven't updated in a week. geez.

But, as you may be able to tell, there was a reason for that. Please welcome the new look of Life on T1. I am still ironing some kinks out with the blogger platform and seriously considering switching back to Wordpress, but for now this is my look. It's the start of building my personal brand, I am also working on a few presentations and educational workshops to further my advocacy, and once those are complete I will start to promote myself.

I want 2013 to be a big year for me personally and professionally and I am the only one who is in charge of that. But sometimes....I feel like I am living a double life. My corporate job can be difficult at times and negative, but it pays my bills so I can do things like Blog on my fancy laptop, pump insulin, drive my car, attend Slipstream....I feel like this passion for advocacy work is starting to bubble so much, I may explode. Shockingly, since I have felt more purposeful as I started being a vocal advocate, my work life balance is more....balanced and even tipping a bit on the life side. So really, I can't complain.

  4. HI Alanna
    I saw your post from someone else a few days ago.
    I'm pretty new to this, but was happy to see someone else from Canada, and so close to me (I'm in Labrador).
    I look forward to reading your old posts to catch up.
