So You Had a Bad Day.

I don't even know what's up with today. It's just been AWFUL for me. I woke up this morning and I was like, I don't even want to go to my externship. But I went because I need the hours, hello.
After a procedure I was cleaning up and I was trying to take apart the dental syringe that holds the anesthetic and needle. So I took out the anesthetic cartridge then I had issues with the needle. And it poked my finger. Yep. Totally got my finger numb. Awesome. It was really embarrassing.
Then I had to work on a new patient and take 4 x-rays and take impressions for bleaching trays. I was embarrassed from before I tried to do really well. I ended up making a disaster. I dropped a mirror and broke it. I basically choked the patient while taking their impression. I wasn't set up correctly and was totally jittery and running around. I can tell the patient was NOT happy with me. Yeah, and the best part of it was, the patient worked as an orthodontic assistant and gave me ADVICE to make an impression. Incredible. That made me feel ten times better.
After that, I wanted to do nothing. Be done with the day. I actually had one more patient and had to do the exact same thing. So I fixed the mistakes I made and it turned out a lot better. Besides the fact I had to re-do her impressions on her bottom side 3 times. The first two, the trays didn't fit in her mouth. But she was nice to me.
I talked the dental assistant there and I was like, hey, if you don't think your busy this afternoon do you think I can just go home? And she said it was fine. I don't even know what's wrong with me. My day has been super stressful. Maybe because I haven't gotten a response from someone. No beuno.

Oh yeah, I did deliver the letter to N on... Sunday. At his work. This is how it went.
I walked over and noticed he put blonde in his hair so I said, "Nice hair."
He kind of rolled his eyes at me. Well, that's what it looked like to me. Yeah, just super annoyed I would even think about coming into his work. Nice thank you.
I said, "Here. I just wanted to give you this. Read it later."
He put it in his pocket and I walked away.
Luckily, I saw a friend right before I walked out the store and talked to me. And I was freaking out, almost wanting to turn around and just chew him out and say, "You can at least say hi to me!" I guess, I don't get that respect.

I have school tonight, then I have my three finals tomorrow and Thursday. Tonight I'm working on two patients to pass off, just to get practice and things. Nicole is one of them, if her baby will work with us :] ha, then someone else. That no one would be happy about if I said who it was.
5 more days until my birthday. I honestly will have the most boring birthday this year. I am doing nothing. It makes me a little bit sad. But whatever, I don't need anything.
16 days until my ultrasound. Meh.
I'm excited to see my baby for the first time. I don't even believe I'm pregnant most days. I just feel fat, not pregnant. I do feel my baby move at night when I'm laying in bed doing nothing.

Well, that's my day. I'm hoping it gets A LOT better. I'm going to make some mac&cheese. Me and baby are hungry :] ha. Then probably take a nap before school. Or shower. Maybe that will help me relax.


  1. Huh, must be catching. The past couple of days I've been pretty depressed and unmotivated. Luckily today I HAD to teach preschool and it helped that I had something to do.

    Hey, that's cool that you got to fix your mistakes, but not cool that you were having such a bad day at your externship.

    And you know, welcome to adulthood. Birthdays are no big deal. Handsome Husband's birthday is on Friday and we have no plans and no money for a sitter or plans anyway. I can't remember the last time we did anything but cake for my birthday. And it's normally homemade cake. So, hopefully it makes you feel better knowing that it's normal to not have plans for your birthday.

    You are almost done with school! You can do it! :)

I'll take you out to dinner for your birthday!! :D if you don't have anything... :D If you have to work... that is fine... just offering so you won't have a "boring birthday" :P hehehe! So just call me or text me and we'll see what we can do! :D
