- About ThePunkHippie
- I'm a free spirit & I believe that life should be an adventure. I want to play in waterfalls, lay in a field & watch the clouds roll by, see the sun set over a large city, hunt for four leaf clovers, dance in the moonlight, wish on shooting stars, & see the northern lights, just to name a few things. I want to live on the road in a modified van. I want to see the world, to travel, constantly. I plan on finally getting my drivers license, converting a van into a makeshift RV, & living on the road, traveling around Canada with my boyfriend, but that probably won't happen for a few years. In the meantime, I'm working on getting my drivers license, & also making a name for myself with my art, so I'll be able to afford the lifestyle I want.

- Your experiences with diabetes
- A lot of my relatives are Diabetic, so I knew it was coming. When I visited my doctor in 2010, I learned that I've basically got it (7.6 when it should be under 7, but I had eaten that morning, & my doctor didn't come out & tell me I had it)
My doctor told me to cut down on rice, bread, potatoes, & pasta, & that would help me lose weight. Since then I've been trying to learn more about counting carbs, & what I can eat instead.
