Putting it off a little
But there might be amazing news with it anyway. I had a weekend away and rode down with family friends. lol... I was talking about how I have my boyfriend totally convinced I'm getting breast implants. (That's a long story... but we have a long distance relationship, so we don't get to see each other that much anymore. I txted him a couple weeks ago telling him I'd have a surprise for him next time I saw him... something that would make me look a lot better. He thinks it's implants. ) Well, the female said that she used to work as an orthodontic assistant and asked if I wanted a recommendation for a practice. I said sure, even though I had my appointment scheduled, because I love getting feedback from people on the practices in the area. And the practice she used to work for, the one she recommended, was the practice I'd already chosen! How funny, huh?
I asked her a bit about the orthodontic assistant job since I've actually looked at trying to do that since I began this orthodontic journey. I didn't mention that I was looking into the job myself, just asked about it. BUT, she suddenly had a lightbulb sort of moment and said, "Wait! You could do it, and if you start working there, your braces would be free." So she's going to place a couple of calls for me, and I'm going to inquire a bit about a job.
Really, it was just soooooo crazy, but I'm somewhat stoked by the prospect. I'd get an awesome job, and my $5300 braces would become free.
Hopefully I'll get word on working there soon. If not, look for the braces sometime around... oh, I think October 17ish.
So yeah, a much longer wait, but a possible GREAT payoff.
