So, it turned out that my root canal treatment didn't hurt. At all, really.
My tooth began to hurt and my face got all swollen. The dentists had to poke another hole into my lip to squeeze out the maturation that made my face swell so much (which hurt), and less than a week after they filled the opened tooth with some terrible tasting medicine and filled the gap with something that should be temporary (as this will take multiple visits..)
Either way, it was anticlimatic how I cried and stopped eating and sleeping for THAT. It wasn't nearly as bad as I'd thought.
I began to think that maybe I'd become a dentist. To be the thing that you've always feared for no rational reason, not to mention that dentists are always so nice despite the terrible deeds they'll have to do. It would be kinda cool to be one. Either that, or I'll become a politician just to give more money to dental care, schools and ELDERLY PEOPLE.
Last Friday was the Independence day of Finland. Here we pitifully celebrate it by watching the important people celebrate it. Some veterans, politicians, celebrities, difference makers and so on. This year it was a bit different, it wasn't a ball but instead a lovely concert that we ordinary people liked to watch too. I really enjoyed it, since it took way less money to arrange what they had this year. As I also like how our new president Niinistö tried to get politicians to lower their salaries. Just guess how that worked out
Of course there were some chaos right outside the concert house the event was held. People were complaining about the differences in wealth and equality, although things really ain't so bad in here. Either way, no reason to physically assault the policemen and their horses that tried to keep them from destroying more than they did.
I am sorry, I found those protester's vandalism absolutely pitiful and despicable.
Although there was a little truth in it.
It made me sick to think about all the old war veterans who lie there, forgotten, after building this country we live in. The decision makers are cutting more and more money from old people's nursing homes, while they were the people who made Finland. I hate to sound this patriotic, but I think it's just disgraceful how our elders are just left there without the reward of their long life of work and effort. I can't even say that "our decision makers will be in those sheets after a while" to make myself feel better, because they have the goddamn money to hire a personal assistant or a nurse or whatever. They won't be put into those nursing homes.
I honestly think that our elders, especially the veterans, should be put into our jails! The prisonners get to go out, do sports and excercise, even study and work at will. Their food costs way more than the food served at nursing homes or our schools.
And for whatever's sake, them prisonners (shamelessly including the Independence day's restless protesters here) are jailed for a reason. They should be sent into elderly people's nursing homes while our veterans get to bask in the joys of spending their elderly lives doing whatever they like to do as their hobby. That's how it should go.
