Here we go again.

Hi everyone!

As you may have noticed I haven't been posting for the daily challenge simply because I just couldn't think of what to write about. Like I find it hard to think of 5 things I'm happy about or 5 things I'm passionate for at the moment, and the like. I feel like the topics are too structured that I couldn't really express the things that I really want to express.

Soooo with that being said, I'll momentarily will take a pause on the daily challenge and instead to keep up with my promise of posting something daily, I'll probably try my best to post something random like music videos that I'm in to or photo inspos from Pinterest or maybe a post about my past trips over the last 2 years. I had fun answering 7 questions from the daily challenge but I feel like they're a bit boring and not as engaging as I hope they'd be.

'Til the next!
-A.

DAY 7: What is your dream job, and why?

I've always been inclined to media arts or to any creative outlet. As a kid I always draw or sometime I make bracelets and necklaces. In grade school, I always come in second when it comes to designing things. In high school, I was a part of the layout staff in our school newspaper and at the same time I was the layout editor for our school yearbook. In college, I guess I'm my organization's and professor's graphic artist. So yeah I guess you can say my dream job isn't really like graphic designing but be a part of like a magazine firm or something that has something to do with layouting stuff. The one in charge with the whole look of a magazine or ad., and the like. I think Creative Director is the term for it or something?

I got inspired when I watched The Devil Wears Prada and The Intern. (Both are Anne Hathaway films by the way, in which she portrays my dream job in both movies). So yeah, I got so amazed with the lifestyle and with how they hustle down the streets of New York, which by the way is my DREAM city, and it just fascinates me. Although Dentistry is also my dream job. Being able to restore someone's smile and confidence is the best reward you can get from being a dentist. But if we're being super duper honest here, I'm like 60% on the creatives side than being a dentist. Though I guess I can do both if given the time and opportunity.

DAY 6: What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?

Dentistry may be the hardest thing I've ever experienced in my 24 years of existence. Like every step that goes along with it is always a struggle. The whole process that comes along with it, isn't a simple walk in the park.

It comprises of 2 years of Pre-dental subjects, which is a breeze, then 4 years of Dental Proper. The first 2 years of Dental Proper focuses on the basic sciences related to dentistry such as Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology. It also focuses on the basics of the different specialties of Dentistry like Prosthodontics, Operative, Endodontics, Oral Surgery, and the like. The next 2 years are the clinical years, with the last year as our internship year. The last 2 I guess are the most challenging ones since we have to juggle handling patients with classes. There'll be times where we're sorta forced to skip a class just to accommodate a patient or just to finish a case. What's hard also is finding the patient with the right case as well. Patients are a huge factor in the last 2 years of dentistry. You have to admit, even if you flash them with a bundle of cash, there are still some factors that just won't make them comply.

Aside from the course being difficult, the way the institution runs the course is what makes it all the more difficult. Enforcing unnecessary rules and regulations plus coming up with unreasonable sanctions is what makes the program all the more harder. But I guess, everything has to go through under the needle hole in order to become a well equipped Dentist. It just proves that the course itself is no joke and that every procedure is crucial and should be taken seriously.
