Uncomfortably Numb

So, I just got back from the dentist. I spent two hours there, but the good news is:

Sousa: 4
Wisdom Teeth: 0

That's right, they're gone. I finally got those irritating, unnecessary molars out. Now I'm just waiting for the novocain to wear off. My tongue is so fuzzy right now. I hate novocain; you talk like a freak, you can't spit, everything feels puffy. Gah, I can't wait for it to go away.

I got four cavities filled too (alright, I admit it, I had 6 cavities but two of them were on the wisdom teeth). That wasn't too bad I guess. I mean, four isn't so bad; it could have been worse, I could have had 9 or so...

The assistant was pretty attractive though. Too bad I was shot up with novocain and she had to dab away my drool. C’est la vie.

Anyway, I still have that "dentist" taste in my mouth, I'm gonna see what I can do about that. And I think I hear a Strawberry Surf Rider calling me from Jamba Juice...

I'm here and I'm on the mend, my friend

I feel good.

I've felt like I was losing my mind. I haven't shaved in a few days. I feel better now.

I'm happy.

My birthday is on the 13th. I'm turning 19. I don't feel like it's my birthday. You all know how usually you can feel it coming. I don't feel it this time. I don't feel like I should be turning 19 anyway. 19, for some reason, seems a lot older to me than 18. When you turn 18 you're thinking "now I'm a legal adult, yay!" but 19, now I'm thinking "I've had a full year as a legal adult, now I really am an adult." I feel more official now. I can do whatever I want.

I've been thinking, in a couple years I should get my Private Investigator's License and start my own P.I. Company. I watched "Memento" (one of my favorite movies, you should see it) last night. Leaonard Shelby was an Insurance Claims Investigator, maybe I should look into that. I think I could do very well in that field.

I'm excited for the future. Everything is beautiful. Life is beautiful. I need a vacation though. I just want to get away for a little while and cut loose, kick back, not worry about anything.

I love the Christmas season. I don't remember how much I love it until it comes. I love walking around the mall, seeing all the people shopping, listening to the Christmas music they have playing, looking at all the extravagent decorations. I love the color of the sky at night when it snows. If you haven't noticed it, you should. The next time it snows look at the night sky. It's beautiful. It's one of those little things some people will never take pleasure in. I want to go all-out this holiday season. The whole nine yards. I want to go out with friends and look at lights. I want to go walking in the snow. I want to go sledding and build a snowman. I want to watch them light up Temple Square and go on a sleigh ride. I want to enjoy the company of everybody I love.

I miss my friends who have moved away.

I love life. I can't wait for what comes next.

I feel wonderful.

I'm going to go shave.
