... of the teeth, that is!

The braces! They are off! My new, smoothy teeth; let me show you them! Every sentence from now on will end in exclamation points! That is how happy I am at the braces being off!

The slimeyness that was the freshly nakeded tooths rubbing smoothly against my inner mouth fleshes has subsided! The feeling that I am missing things in my mouth has not just yet! My mouth feels thinner and I have nothing to scratch my tongue on when it gets itchy! Also, nothing for my upper lip to grab on to to help create suction seals when doing (not sex)things with my mouth! It is an adjustment, but a good one!

Also, my teeth now look really, really, super long! At least to me! Except that the orthodontist did sand down my lower canines! Now they are much less upside-down vampirey! Sadface!

... in which David is the worst university student EVER!

Why, you ask? Because for my last essay, which I handed in two days late (incurring a 4% penalty), I referenced Wikipedia. Not once, not twice, but thrice! (Also, for one of them, the reference was bogus; I did not get my information there, but could not remember which page I had seen it on.) So while the late fee costs me practically nothing, given that my essay on the post-Beatles works of John Lennon is full of references to a dodgily verified Participatory Media source, four songs, a YouTube clip of an interview and only one real, actual, proper source... well, I think you get the picture. The other essay I had due on Monday was not actually an essay; it was liner notes for a compilation CD of songs related to a political issue. Mine? Prop 8 and Gay Marriage. 46 minutes of music (though I would have liked to have had a lot more on there), 1500 words discussing how the music relates to gay marriage (both lyrics AND the actual music). Was one of the best assignments I've ever had to do.

In other news, I'M FINISHED! Sure, I still have two subjects to complete next year, but they're basically just performing in SUMS and writing two essays (total - one each semester)so I'M FINISHED! Graduation ceremony is ONE YEAR AWAY! (+/- small fragments of time)

Thirdylymost, my braces come off in two weeks from yesterday. You do not know how many kitten-like balls bundles of joy this fills me with. Four years of orthodental torture, prepare to be smited... smoted... smitten?

High fives? :D
