I'm The Girl Who Has Always Loved Going To The Denist, What Can I Say?

I love going to the dentist. In fact, as long as I can remember, it's always been a place I looked forward to going. So, I was shocked when all of my friends either hated going or really didn't want to go. I couldn't believe that it was a place so universally hated and I was the one who actually enjoyed it. Although recently I've discovered I have a few unpopular opinions, like this one and this one, so maybe I shouldn't have been surprised? Regardless, I am making it my mission to get at least one person to see the merits of going to the dentist!

To begin with, how can you not love having clean teeth? Teeth get so grimy and gross and even if you're going every six months to the dentist, you're still using your teeth every day! Getting them nicely cleaned and flossed is such an amazing feeling. Plus, odds are it's one of the only times your teeth actually get flossed (bonus points to you if you do floss your teeth regularly). I love having extra clean teeth so much that I try to not mess them up for as long as possible after my appointment!

Still not convinced? Okay, how about the free stuff?! I'm such a sucker for free things. Hey, it's one less thing that I have to pay for! Plus, it's usually the nicer toothbrushes that I would most likely not want to buy anyway. It's icing on top that I usually go to the dentist right around when I'm supposed to switch out toothbrushes. Even if I ignore the fact that I should be changing it, I still have a toothbrush (or two or three) around for when my toothbrush gets to that point where I absolutely should not use it anymore.

The people at the office are also the greatest, especially the hygienists. They might not know you personally, but they'll make you feel as if they do! They want to know about your life and see what you're up to. You might even end up liking one of them so much that you'll want to see them every time. That's what happened to me! You get at least surface invested in their life and want to know what's going on. It's like your work friends: you start learning about them and want to keep up to date, but you might not want to hang out with them outside of the office.

Now, I've heard from friends that they don't like to go because of needles, or they don't like the dentist (the person), or they're scared of what the dentist will find. I completely understand most of those reasons, but also, you're definitely missing out on all of the good sides of the dentist! Plus, if you hate the dentist, maybe you should switch dentists?

Maybe I haven't quite convinced you the dentist is the absolute best place in the world, but hopefully I've convinced you it could be the best place in the world. Clean teeth, free stuff, nice people, what more could you want?

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
