Before I get into this post I have to admit to something absolutely stupid that I did. Last night while I was uploading photos I kept getting an error message saying my Picasa web album was full. I'm all like, "WTF?, where did these some THOUSAND pictures come from and why are they saved here?" No worries, I'll just go ahead and DELETE them all.
Imagine how crushed I am right now realizing that by deleting them they were being removed from my blog. EVERY SINGLE POST since I started blogging 2.5 years ago.
I'm so overwhelmed right now I don't know what I'm going to do :(
I remember thinking, “I hope nobody makes me do something like this one day.” (maniacal laugh!)
That day came but it was far more fun and exciting than picking up garbage off the streets and taking pictures of homeless people!
It was the Connected in Motion 2nd World Diabetes Day Photo Scavenger Hunt. Granted I'm a few weeks late on posting this but the intentions were there!
After an extremely stressful and eye gouge inducing drive into downtown Toronto, we all met. We teamed up and headed over to the Banting and Best exhibit to have a look at the display before causing amok around the city.
We were given a binder with literally hundreds of things with different amounts of points. We were also sent off with a tote filled to the brim with Dex4 glucose tablets and a few other random items we would need. Luckily it wasn’t raining but it was certainly very chilly. The trick to getting the most points was in the strategy. Do we go for the items that are harder, farther away and require a lot of time but have big points? Or do we get as many of the lower point items as possible? We went with the ladder.
This sure was a fantastic way to celebrate World Diabetes Day. The scavenger hunt took place in cities all over the globe. I’m sure it will be even bigger next year. Thanks to the awesome folks (Virtue & Jen!) who orchestrated this whole thing. We had a pretty awesome time! I might re-consider taking the train next year though. I came very close to exploding from the frustration of gridlock and the countless hours we spent getting there and back.
