I study so hard! I don't know if i am guaranteed to get into dental school and become a dentist but I can say I study very hard! I like this girl who is 2 and a half years older than me. She can barely solve algebra1,2,gemetry problems. She had almost straight D when she was in high school. She told me today, that most ppl in college go to party, drink, and get kicked out of college. I know it's absolutely wrong fact! I mean of course, there r ppl slacking off but at least not us. When I say us, i mean SDN ppl!!!!!! She also said she earns much more money than ppl with bachelors degree...well it's true, cuz i know she earns alot of money, don't ask me how, or why but this straight D grade girl earns about 60~100 dollars per hour. she works in IT field by the way. she also arrogantly said there are so many dentists around her town so that dentist won't be successful and then she also said dentists have to pay 60% of their income for the insurance money(I don't know if it's true or not). so anyway, she kept mocking college students including ppl like me who want to become a doctor. I work so hard but I couldn't say anything in front of her. Not only she earns alot of money, I have crush on her I lost my self-esteem and start to lose my dream. because I thought I can even give up my own dream for her and now she was saying as if what i have been doing was just nothing. I know that writing this in this forum might be inappropriate but could someone give me a direction? maybe this is one of the dilema that doctor-wanna-be ppl have to go through. I am smart enough to know that money isn't the reason I want to become a dentist. I want to become a dentist so i can get respect from ppl and be happy by helping those who are suffering for whatever the reasons, but if she is keep saying as if she doesn't appreciate her dentist or mock us, I don't know if i don't get respect nor thanks from the patients that i take care of.
