Nice teeth.

I haven't got even the tiniest stroke of inspiration to blog today but it's been weighing on me so here I am. So, the biggest news in my world is that I decided to become licensed as a dental assistant. It's a nine month course available through a trade school that is about a mile from my house. I was just trying to put out feelers about it a month ago when one of the schools called me. I guess it's their thing to have you come to the campus instead of mailing you info about the program. Well, their tricky trick worked and next thing you know I was taking an assessment test and discussing financial aid. It all happened so fast! I'm kind of glad though because if I hadn't just decided to do it I would have waffled forever and not done anything at all. Well, today was the first day of school. It's only 3 1/2 hours everyday so I was out by 10:45 and had the whole rest of  the day left. The first class is a month long and is all about professional development. Kinda boring and I would  really like to just get on to the teeth part but what can you do. I've had a job or two before and kinda learned all this stuff already by trial and error but I guess I should just take it as an easy A and a nice reminder of how to be professional in the work place. So that's my big news. In nine months I will be able to get a job in a nice low key dentist office doing pleasant stress-free work and hopefully make the dentist experience more pleasant for those who are afraid to spend an hour in the "rip-out room". (as someone I know likes to call it :) 

PS This post is secretly doubling as a homework assignment. Tricky aren't I?
