walk the walk

The thing about our dentistry lab course is this: you know exactly what needs to be done. You just can’t do it yourself- or jut don’t know the best way to do that task. Make the walls convergent. Depth at 1.5mm and width of the 1P condenser. I can rattle off the criteria at the top of my head. It doesn’t mean I can do these things: you can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?

Last week was a major struggle. I failed almost every single assignment due in lab (each time I made a different critical mistake). It was frustrating. It really sucks to be bad at something. It takes 10,000 hours to be an expert at something. I get that it takes a lot of time- but can I please start at at least an amateur level?

And after almost losing my high speed drill (and beating myself up for doing something so stupid) I was off my game for the rest of the week.


Someone said something shocking to me this week: “If I knew how difficult dental school was going to be, I would have never come.” But the thing is, you don’t know anything until you’re here.

I asked myself three big questions about starting dental school this summer. I know I want it! I told myself I would give it 110% and go for it no matter how hard dental school gets. No cost is too great for something you love.

But I’m only scribbling words in dust. I’m not walking the walk. I think this is a common theme in my life right now. Knowing exactly what needs to be done but failing to do them. I need to put my head in the game and get through April first.
