Practical Season

Sometimes we need to celebrate the little things in life.

School isn't interesting for everybody. In fact, I usually think my life is pretty dull: sleep, eat, school, eat, school, eat, write blog, call girlfriend, sleep... you get the picture.

But today, I'm celebrating a little achievement. On this day, I have accomplished and reaped a tiny ounce of reward from all of my gallons of hard work. I've studied dental anatomy, histology, immunology, and lots of other ologies in which I struggled to stay awake, and on this day, I am a workman approved. I created my first occlusal amalgam prep to which my mentor, chief critic, and expert fault-finder said, "Nice Prep."

When I wake up tomorrow, I think I'm going to try taking over the world.

In the meantime, if anybody needs an occlusal amalgam restoration, I think I'm good to go on taking care of it for you. Of course, I hope you won't mind if I need to remove it from your mouth first--that way it's easier to see and work on. Oh, and I'm still not really sure how to fill it up with that amalgam stuff yet, so you'll have to wait a couple of months until I learn that part.

That's way cooler than what I got to do in my lab the other day. First I had to position non-ambulatory patients (mannequins) in bed. Then I had to interview patients with all kinds of weird disorders.

Me: How many hours do you typically sleep at night?
Patient: Purple
