Team Jacob

I am so jealous. Tonight at midnight the much anticipated 3rd installment of the Twilight series hits the big screen. I wish my hubby wasn't on the damn night shift so we could see Eclipse. Instead he is slaving away at the jail as what I like to call an overpaid babysitter. I guess Bella, Edward, and Jacob will have to wait until tomorrow.

One thing about my personality is I ALWAYS root for the underdog, so I am Team Jacob. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Edward...he is one hot vamp, however, I prefer my men with a tan. This post reminds me of a seller on etsy that paints vampire slogans on mugs. One of my favorite saying's is "I like my men tall, dark, and dead." LOL :D

Too bad I already know what happens in the movie because I read all of the books. I won't spoil it for the ones that haven't:)

Ps If you are into the Twilight series, I recommend watching the HBO show TrueBlood. Its sooo good.

How Annoying!! My first blog rant >:O

So last night my T-Mobile Sidekick decided to crap out on me. The little rolley scroll ball no longer wants to go up and down. OK too bad you need the ball to do just about EVERYTHING. How frustrating, I have only had the darn phone for about a year. There is another button that does scrolling...BUT it does more of a page up page down type of thing. Therefore I can not text, can not click on people in my address book, and can not go to my internet bookmarks. Its going to be a bit before I can buy a new one. I know I will be charged full price instead of an upgrade, because I haven't had this POS for 2 years.

In other news My little furry woofer is still battling her disease called Pemphigus. I don't think I have blogged about it before...Its an immune mediated disease where the immune system attacks the skin as if it were a foreign object. The best human disease example I can give, is its like lupus. Tilly's hair falls out in certain spots and she gets scabs. It is happening mostly on her back so I try to keep a little sundress on her to hide it. Some people are so ignorant, I swear. They ask what is wrong with her...I tell them, and the 1st thing they ask is...Is it contagious?? Not unless you can "catch" my dogs immune system...which luckily for you is biologically impossible!! DUMMIES. Go back to High School biology. Tilly is going to a doggy dermatologist, which let me tell you is NOT cheap. She has been battling this disease for about a year now. First she was on steroids to suppress her immune system, but they are unsafe for long term use. Steroids can cause liver and other organ damage. The vet is currently weaning her off that medication and replacing it with another. She has another appointment next week. Hopefully this new medication will put the disease in remission. Unfortunately it will be something she has to deal with for the rest of her life. She still acts a 100% like her normal self. I feel bad for her so mommy has been spoiling little T with her favorite bones. They are covered in oats. After she finishes one, she licks the oats out of her paws for the rest of the night:D Its soo cute!

Dental School Graduate

So I know its been too long since my last post, BUT, good news...I am an official Dental School Graduate!! I finished my dental assisting program with a 94%. What a relief to be done. The program was so interesting I really think I can make a real career in the dental field. I have always longed to do something in the medical field. I come from a family of 2 nurses. With the economy the way it is, it would be comforting to know you have job stability. I have looked in the local newspapers for assisting jobs. Most of them require 6 months to a year of experience. I can see why, a lot of time and effort goes into the training for this occupation from x-rays to learning all the OSHA and safety regulations. Doctors probably prefer someone who has already been trained. Now that I have finished school I am going to look for an internship to gain some experience. This profession offers so many different opportunities too. I am not limited to just a general practice, I can also work in orthodontics (braces), periodontics (gums and surrounding bone), endodontics (root canals), or with an oral surgeon (wisdom teeth extractions & jaw surgery.)

Hopefully I can find a practice open on Saturdays for the internship. I still need my Mon-Friday job for now. I am working in accounting, been at the same place for about 2 years now. It is useful experience seeing I am very good with Quickbooks and other office programs. Sometimes they start dental assistants at the front desk first.

Its been about a year since I got my braces on. My teeth are almost perfectly straight. Then its onto bite correction. I remember growing up and being super self conscious about my smile. Not anymore! How ironic it will be going from the girl who smiled with her hand over her mouth to a certified dental assistant...Someone who educates others on cavity prevention and proper oral hygiene. I can hardly wait to see where this program takes me :) :) :)
