A little stress release....
So school, and my current life happenings, but mainly school, is stressing me out beyond belief. I wish not to include any of this negativity, or any school related events, here on our safe-haven blog. Just know this: your dentist has feelings too. And your dental student's feelings mostly consist of despair and anxiety with a glimmer of hope. And as a patient at the dental school, my life is entirely in your hands and you shouldn't have the authority to hold that kind of power.
As a way of coping, I tried a little exercise tonight to positively de-stress that did not involve crying or calling Mommy (she and dad called me so that doesn't quite count thankyouverymuch). ((I also ate some bread pudding, sue me)).
With help and advice from my classmate Mason, the ultimate camera/gadget photography guru, I made a decision to invest in a new heavy duty camera. I've always loved taking pictures, but have never had any formal training. To distract myself from my sorrows I put on some relaxing music and went around my apartment taking close up photographs of different colors and textures that helped me feel calm.
I think the sink water just may be my favorite. What do you do to de-stress? Here at PLSB we can use all the tips we can get. By the way, I know we've been MIA for about 5-6 months but hopefully we can take the time to get things on our website up and running again.
