I love those little moments where people just get it. It reassures me that at least some people understand. It also affirms that my constant advocacy isn’t for nothing.

This past monday I visited Hartt for admitted students day for performing arts management/music management/music production & technology majors. One portion of the session was having lunch with current Hartt students. It was a beautiful day in Hartford that day, so I was wearing a dress. During lunch, I took my pump out of my bra to bolus, expecting the usual puzzled looks. One was from the current TA of the professor who is the director of my program. All I said was “I’m diabetic” and smiled to assure him that I wasn’t weirded out. His only reply was “thought so” as he nodded toward the pump.

Then we continued our conversation about music.
