Just because I'm bored. Bordering on anti-dentite?

When I was about 12, which was roughly five years ago, I went to the dentist for a cleaning. I was wary about this particular dentist because, well, I'd heard bad things about the practice. Oh, and when I was little it was a big deal about me going to the dentist because I was around this age when I first went to one. And no, I did not have any cavities. Albeit my teeth are not straight (I actually got braces put on yesterday) but I brush three times a day and I've never had any problems.

The dentist was horrible. She was very rough with the tools, and she would repeat herself really loudly if I didn't hear her the first time and she sounded really annoyed, almost as if I was a toddler reaching for a cookie and she was scolding me...I know, it's weird. And then--this is the kicker--her friend, maybe a former client walked in. The dentist stopped whatever it was she was doing and went over to approve of the friend's rounded pregnant stomach. After this, she went out into the hallway while I waited, lying in the chair, and I heard laughter. The dentist had said the word "penis" and was telling some jokes.

So after all of that, I told my mom what had happened. Then I just started going to a different practice, which had just opened and was about a two minute drive from my house. All of the staff there is actually kind! The receptionists and secretaries are really nice, too. And the magazines aren't that old.

    Well, great. I've never done something this simultaneously brave and stupid before, but I feel like maybe... I might be missing something here.…

  • Education funding suck.

  • Thanks I guess

    When I grab a quick snack on campus, I'll usually flip through my class notes. I don't devote my time at the cafeteria to do any hardcore studying…
