Today is my last day having a metal-free mouth. Tomorrow I will be getting my braces on. In the past of couple of days, I've been having mixed feelings and suffering from a little bit of anxiety. (Wouldn't necessarily say 'suffering' but you get the idea) People have been saying it will hurt a lot and every time I look in the mirror and fidget at my teeth.... I can't help but whine then ask "will I look like a nerd?!!!" I fret at their answers and then look back again at my reflection and force myself to imagine myself as 'chic geek' instead.... to be honest, it's quite difficult to do so. I mean, my mouth will never feel the same for over a year! Do people discriminate against braces? I AM 22. Not a 13 year old. A young adult with braces??... do they even exist?!!!
Okay, I think I should stop now and enjoy Dad's steak he's cooked for dinner. For as tomorrow, I will be carrying a toothpick and a small pocket mirror with me everywhere I go - an awkward green or black thing stuck in my teeth will not only be my post-meal dilemma anymore. There will be a new form of trackwork in my life, one that does not involve delayed Cityrail timetables.
Anywho, this is probably one of my last blog posts of me sans braces. My cat Chelsea is such a lostie hehe
Wearing: black and white knit jumper (vintage $4!!!), levi cut-offs (Glebe Markets), dotted tights (Kmart), Chucks (Converse), belt (vintage) and assorted accessories.
Needed to stock up on some essentials. More tights, yummy rocky road and new dove sunnies. Already downloaded the Jezabels and the XX, but I merely wanted the album cover artworks and something legit by the XX - they're just too good.
Hope all goes well tomorrow! Oh my.
