Say cheese

Today I went to the dentist for a regular check-up/teeth cleaning, only I haven't been to the dentist in an embarrassingly long time (like, a year and a half? two years?) and I was all ready for her to do that annoying thing where she asks me if I've been flossing while her hands are in my mouth and I am completely incapable of talking just so I could bitch about how the fuck do dentists expect you to respond when there are 394345873 metal thingie-ma-whatsits and hands in your mouth and you can't move your head because then you'll get a nice scrape across the gum with the scary scraper thing.

But then she asked me if I had been flossing before she started examining my teeth, so I had no choice but to meekly say no and hang my head in shame.

I should be writing thank-you notes right now

I can use the past semester as an excuse for the slow from a stream to a trickle of blog posts, but now that school is over (and has been since May 13), I really have no excuse. I don't know why I haven't really been posting. I used to find interesting stories to tell in even silly and mundane things; somehow I could remember some ridiculous story that should only have been funny if you were there and make it into something I could share with human beings I have never met or even seen.

I don't know why I can't figure out something to write about, because interesting things happen to me and I go out with my friends (I just turned 21 and we can go to bars now which is a bit anti-climatic to be honest but whatever) and I generally have a good time. Like just today, the weather was nice (albeit a bit windy), so I went to the park and threw around a frisbee with my friend from high school. Now, that sounds kind of boring, but I feel like I used to be able to find some aspect that was universally amusing and relate it to broader themes about life or happiness or OH GOD I SOUND LIKE AN ENGLISH MAJOR.

I'm going to shut up now.

What my life has come to

So you know when you have a deadline fast approaching for something you're dreading doing, and you just keep playing web sudoku and posting random shit on Facebook and blogging to put off the inevitable?

Oh, wait, they already have a word for that? And not-so-clever t-shirts too? Oh, damn. I guess I'm late to the party. Egg on my face!

Entirely unrelated: there is a boy I like, and I keep telling myself I'm going to ask him out next chance I get. SETTING GOALS IN LIFE, Y'ALL.
