Unknowable

“I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do. I learned to suspect that anyone is capable of living a lie. I came to believe that other people- even when you think you know them well- are ultimately unknowable”

Brand New Smile!

After two years, my treatment is finally complete, and I got a brand new smile that is even bigger than the last. As annoying as braces were, the process actually went much faster than I expected, and I cannot believe that it is finally over. I clearly remember the day that I walked into the orthodontist’s office for the very first time and learned that I had to get multiple teeth extracted before I could even begin my treatment. I remember the fear that overwhelmed me as I sat in the dentist’s office as I mentally prepared myself to get all four teeth pulled on the same day. I also remember awkwardly glancing at my new silver brackets knowing that I had twenty-two months before I saw my teeth again. Looking back, it was quite an adventure to get where I am now, but I am so thankful for every step because the result is drastic. I am so happy with this brand new smile, and I cannot thank my parents enough for all that they have done for me throughout this entire experience. Now, I just have to keep up with my retainer and wear it (I WILL!)

I just thought I would share this exciting news, and I hope that you are all having a great weekend! 🙂
