For the last month and a half are so, my laptop kept getting pop up saying it that: this version of Window is not genuine and Microsoft Word needs to be activated! It took away my own wallpaper, and I can't reset it! Those these are just nuisances, it got me very annoyed.

I mentioned to Amanda, and she searched the web, then sent me the link. I read, I watched, and I followed to the tee, but what they wanted to remove, was not on my computer.

Everyone has their own idea of the perfect home. From tiny houses with lots of land to roam and feel free, to ginormous mansions with a swimming pool and monstrous backyard, to something quaint, quiet, and nice in the suburbs or cities—there are hundreds of dream home scenarios. What’s yours? If you ever get the opportunity to have your dream home, here are a few reasons why you should totally have a hand in the build process.

Since you’re the one that has been dreaming of this home design for years, maybe even decades, then you should be the one to direct the build of your dream house. You know what you want, and contractors can tell you if those ideas and dreams are feasible or not. If an element of your dream home simply cannot be done, reputable contractors should be able to offer you a close alternative that satisfies that aspect of your house dreams.

Your Creative Ideas Can Be a Driving Force

It’s true that home designers and contractors get burnt out sometimes, especially when they build the same kind of homes over and over again. However, you can inspire with your creative ideas. Let your ideas lead the ways for your contractor teams, but don’t be obnoxious. Be bold, creative, and motivational—minus the demands and rudeness.

Being Helpful Might Earn You a Discount on Construction

Since you have commissioned your dream home, the build team might appreciate it if you shared your ideas and vision with the general contractors. The foreman, especially, would love a direction, because it makes it easier for him to lead his team towards the successful completion of your dream home. Additionally, being helpful, polite, and concise might earn you a discount on the overall construction process. It’s a win-win.

If Not the Exterior, Then the Interior

If you simply don’t have the cash to hire for a total build of your dream home, focus on the home you have now. Dream up your ideal interior designs and pick a room to begin in. If you want help, you could hire an interior designer to act out your ideas in each room. This avenue also allows you to save cash over time for the build of your actual dream house.

Not everyone gets to have their dream home, but everyone has an idea of what their dream home would be. If you get the opportunity to put your dreams into action, thank your lucky stars, and strive to have a hand in the build of what will be your forever house.

Some people never know what they want to be when they grow up, and that’s okay. But then there are others that bounce from one career idea to another, solely based on the promise of money.

Most dental degrees, like other medical degrees, begin with internships in offices. This means you’re the lackey. You will start from the bottom, fetching coffee, doing paperwork, and helping out where needed—all while working towards your dental degree. These internships usually run 9 to 11 hours in a day, plus however long your classes are, plus time to get home, shower, and catch a little sleep before doing it all again the next day. In a word—exhausting.

Degrees, Especially Doctorates, Take Many Years and Excellent Grades

Dental degrees, especially a full pursuance as a certified, professional dentist, takes many years, and you have to acquire excellent grades. The licensure board will look at your college grades, as well as your attendance, alongside the score of your final certification tests. There are many elements and many hurdles to becoming a full-fledged dentist.

There are Several Dental Degree Avenues to Choose to Pursue

Luckily, dental degrees are varied. You can opt for a full-fledged dental degree, where you become a medical dentist, capable of surgeries and an assortment of oral health issues. Or, you could opt for an assistant, where the degree hours are shorter, and you help the dentists instead of being the dentist. You could even specialize in a single service, like teeth whitening in Brooklyn. If you’re serious, you should go online to research the kinds of dental degrees you think would best suit your time, energies, and abilities.

The Loans and Fees for Dental School are Hefty

Dental school loans and fees are tens of thousands of dollars. Moreso if you pay out of pocket. And then there are the interests for those loans, which pile up after a certain number of years out of school. Make sure you are prepared to pay back whatever you borrow, because you don’t want your dream job to land you in a quicksand of mounting debt.

Before jumping on the dental degree bandwagon, make sure it’s something you really, truly want to pursue. It’s hard work that requires commitment, dedication, and loads of energy. But, in the end, the opportunity to work a dream job is well worth the trials to get there.

Things change; life changes; and we learn to adapt! We move on, paying more attention to a certain aspect of life, and neglecting the other parts that we once accustomed to.

Home life, family life has changed for me these past many years; thus, blogging diminished to the point where I can't get any inspiration back. It seems as if that part of me has died. I now live to do my duties!

This is just a short post to catch up, as I now even hate writing about how I feel! It is so un-substantial and doomed.

See you around and have a beautiful weekend!
