I am the luckiest

Ok, enough of this "woe is me" crap!



I've never been a big New Year's Resolution kind of person.
I know I make them every year, but I can't for the life of me remember what my '09 resolution was. Probably lose 10 pounds. Instead I've gained. Sigh. I've decided though - this year - I WILL be more appreciative of where life has put me. For every complaint I seem to have every single day of this whole Dental School thing (and I still will have them), I'm really going to try to consider myself lucky. Lucky I have the opportunity to have these complaints. School sucks, yeah, it sure does. But damn, I'm almost guaranteed a job when I graduate. A good job, something I will like to do. More than most people in our country right now.

Maybe writing this will hold me accountable?

Totally. I'm done complaining, promise. And if I do complain again, just tell me to read this again =)

I'm glad you understand...B called me when he read this to ask if everything is ok and if there was something I wanted to talk about. He thought I sounded depressed about life. Non-dentites just don't understand.
