No Teeth

It’s been a while since I’ve dreamt a really creepy dream, but I’ve had my fair share of them. One of the dreams that completely scares me is one where I’m brushing my teeth in front of the mirror and I see my teeth falling off one by one. A different version of that is one where I find my long-lost retainers and I put them on. At first they fit well, but a bit tight; when I try taking them off they get stuck and eventually it comes off along with most of my teeth.

This Saturday I went to the dentist to get new retainers after I lost mine almost ten years ago, I guess it’s better late than never. As soon as I saw them, the first thing that came to my mind was that dream and I completely freaked out; my heart started beating fast, I got kind of sweaty.. it was horrible. The dentist told me to put them on and I hesitated for a second because I really did not want my teeth falling off. I put them on and they felt kind of loose, so the dentist tightened them a bit. When she came back and told me to put them on she made sure they clicked in my mouth by pushing hard on them; I almost died thinking they were going to get stuck and when she tried taking them off my teeth would come off as well.
Thankfully that didnt happen and I still have all of my teeth intact. I’m still scared to take off my retainers but hopefully that will go away soon. I’m just glad that not ALL dreams come true.


Jobs and Careers: What’s the deal?

I have been unemployed for approximately one week and one day and it is so weird. I had NO IDEA that looking for a job would be so hard; maybe it’s because I’m being picky with what I want but still, come on!

I used to work as an office clerk and it was okay, they pay was fine and the environment was very laid back. But now that I’m trying to look for something else I have no idea what to look for. Do I want to work in retail, as a bank teller, Bath and Body Works? I don’t know, and honestly not knowing what I want to do right at this moment gets me mad; but what bothers me the most is the fact that I have my career planned out, I’m studying and taking classes towards having a career as a photojournalist but I cant find a decent job.

I thought that once you had your career planned out it would easy to find a job. Turns out I was wrong. I have experience in filing, being a receptionist, talking to interviewees, even doing payroll, but NO experience whatsoever in being a journalist. I wish there could be plenty of job openings as beginning journalists as there are openings for cashiers at Forever 21.

Maybe it’s because I’m new at this whole “job hunting” thing, but I sure hope my next job could get me closer to my career and not drag me away slowly from it.
