I had speech at 9:30 AM, left early, went to an oral surgeon to get a stupid tooth pulled out at 11. I’ve been had surgery before, so I’ve never been put under and let me tell ya, it’s probably the strangest thing I’ve ever experienced. I’m still not 100 percent sure how it all worked and how I woke up in a different room, where I apparent walked while holding onto the nurse, and then I got home “literally” in the blink of an eye.
I’m so confused by how I was put to sleep by science.
The oral surgeon is definitely the coolest guy in the dental industry I have ever encountered. Yesterday he told me his view on life.
“I see life as a roller coaster ride. I always have to sit in the first seat on a roller coaster, because if you’re not in the very front, what’s the point of the ride? You can’t see anything in front of you. So anyway, life’s like that. As you’re getting to the very top and you hear the last two or three clicks- click… click… click, there’s about 2 seconds before you’re about to drop and you’re just looking at it all and you’re thinking, ‘well, here goes nothing” and in 10 seconds, it’s over, and you have the rest of the stuff, the boring stuff afterwards. Life moves pretty fast, and you only live once. I wake up some morning and I think, where has time gone? and I realize that all of those cool Roller Coaster moments are over and I’ve got my kids to rely on. You have to take advantage of whatever obstacles life throws at you. So if you need to fix something about yourself, then you have to do it before it’s too late. You have to enjoy and experience as many roller coasters as you possibly can until you aren’t allowed to ride them anymore.”
… why are you the freaking coolest?!?!
Then I came home, wake up every 2 hours, 2 times, took some vicodin, thought I was going to die the second time I woke up, ate baby sliced pizza, drank little juice boxes of apply juice, two apply juiced, got dressed to see my High School’s Production of ‘The Secret Garden” and remembered what inspired me 5 years ago to go into the performance industry.
Today was incredible. On the right path to feeling beautiful and being successful.
ALSO. comments I got today.
From my 9th grade french teacher whom I haven’t seen in about 3 years, as I was walking toward her to greet her and hug her, “Oh my God, you are gorgeous.” TEARS
“You look hot. Look at you body.”
“I love your outfit.”
“It was so nice seeing you.”
little things. But wonderfully inspiring things. =)
I hope everybody’s happy and hanging in there with school and stuff. You’re all beautiful.
