So I made my first trip to the dentist's office in... well, let's not talk about that. Suffice to say, it's been longer than it should have been. All in all, not too much unexpected bad news. But this is the first time in my adult life I've had to ask the question, "will the insurance cover that?" This whole private health care thing sucks balls, let me just say. OHIP for teeth!
Now, it's not that bad. Even if I had no insurance, I could probably afford to pay my bill out of pocket because of a number of factors, including saving for tuition that I no longer have to pay, a recently-arrived tax refund, and a few more cheques that are in the mail. (They swear.)
But it does make me think how I'd manage if I weren't young, healthy, employed, and covered by a loved one with a real job.
 So, uh, getting wisdom teeth pulled. Does that, like, hurt a lot?
 No, I didn't drop out. My scholarship has been renewed.
