Dental appointment coming up here too! I imagine it must be a bit tricky working out an education system you haven’t grown up with! And particularly when you have to think about shifting away to college and the $$$$!
I know, the college thing is all alien to me!
I’ve come across these stock takes a few times, but this one has finally spurred me into making my own! It’s such a nice little idea for a blog post!
