Application progress update

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Every day this long weekend I woke up and thought, I don’t have school again? A treat every morning. I also got to catsit this beauty for a classmate.


Interviews are coming along! My classmate and I had a happy conversation about how interviews encourage us to reflect back on our time at Penn Dental. Somehow, somewhere along the way, we filled our days with meaningful moments and now they want us!

Fourth year itself is great. It’s the getting-ready-for-next-year part that’s been hectic. Like Bri warned me, there are pockets of stressful moments, a series of roller coaster up’s and down’s throughout the entire year. Nothing is too stressful yet, but everything requires a little bit of fuss.



And then the little things. I had an incident in clinic couple of weeks ago, which reminded me of two things: 1) not everything happens for a reason, but you can assign that reason and 2) bad s- happens to good people. The second point let the event roll off my back because I was mostly plagued by this question: “How could this happen to me?” (That is me singing this Maroon 5 song) Because I didn’t deserve to be treated like that.

And then I thought about resilience and grit. How can you become stronger in face of adversaries? By introducing mini challenges then facing progressively bigger ones (just like weight training). Better to have things happen early in my dental career and learn from them.

Bay window or balcony?
Deck or backyard?
(All my free time's now spent looking at apartments in my candidate cities....)

  2. already know what Designer handbags Spring Drive is then I will simply explain that it is a special Seiko invention that combines the best of a mechanical movement with the accuracy of a quartz movement. That is because the 9R65 is Replica Rolex Watches powered by a traditional mainspring, but rather than using a traditional regulation system, it uses Replica rolex watches uk a quartz crystal regulator.The unwinding.
