shitty ghost month

Any idea about the hungry ghost festival that some hardcore Chinese people are into believing? I usually ignore far fetched superstitions like that but this year, this year was particularly shitty!

1.) Because this month alone I got hacked and lost money in the process. –I lost 5.5k. Had to go report everything, pay replacement stuff, fill up paper upon paper and reports and whatever, nobody cares. fml. There goes my social life fund. Just when I thought I can splurge and see my friends…

2.) Next, I ordered a bag for my cousin and ended up having to endure stress for four days because the online seller lied about sending the item and also the estimated arrival –I was so anxious to get the item before my (other) cousin goes to the US. It was going to be hand carried to the US.  Making me worry that I have to send it internationally! The bag cost cheaper than the international shipping rate. So it will not be worth it… I wanted to wring the seller’s neck! She even had the gall to say that she reserves the right not to answer to any calls and that she is not a scammer. All the while this shit was happening while I was…

3.) Sick –this time it was a happy combination of flu, colds and cough with dysmenorrhea thrown in just for fun. And because I am sick I thought I would sterilize my retainers…I ended up shrinking them –I cannot wear them (wounded gums!!!) and had to get new ones made. Fml.

4.) Retainers -Dentist is away. Fml again.

5.) DIY fail –Never again Krylon! After having all these shitty things happening, I thought to just stay at home and just go craft something to keep me busy. I got a house shaped frame on sale and thought that we could spray paint it to match our color. We grabbed a can of krylon thinking it would do the trick, It ended up a lumpy uneven mess that we tried to sand and spray again and again. To think that brand was the most expensive spray paint can we got. Maximum failure.

never again!!!

never again!!!

The only thing that consoles me is that today is the last day of the shitty ghost month. Arrrggghhh!

metal mouth no more

I waited patiently as the dentist plucked each bracket on my teeth. After what feels like 30 mins (its only 5 mins in real life) my braces are gone – for the second time around! I had a relapse so I got braces twice.

After three long years of being a metal mouth (the second time around braces)… ahhh this feels divine!

Can smile my Cheshire cat grin* now.

*smiling with all of my teeth showing.

I run my tongue over the smooth surface of my teeth. And again, and again.

Till it is time to get the cast* of my teeth.

*Those plaster replicas that are meant to be of help in creating the retainers.

So, because I am so proud and euphoric of my new found freedom… I am posting a before and after cast of my teeth.

The ochre is the before, the green is the after. The front tooth was chipped when the cast was given to me, must have been dropped or something… but looking at it gives you the idea of the improvement my teeth had.

Now that I am free from braces. Let the prenup shoot begin!
