about this blog
Why chai at six? Because growing up, my family and I would have chai every evening. Those moments of my youth are among my most favorite memories.

Who am I? A twentysomething working fulltime in Knoxville, Tenn.

    chai at six
    I had an orthodontical appointment this morning. A good amount of progress has been made with the braces; my teeth no longer jut out, and the shape of my face has changed some.

    It's been going good, and I've been pretty chipper through out it all, aside from the times I starve myself so as not to endure pain chewing. Anyway, I found out today that I'll probably still have them on till March or April. Damn. I was so hoping I'd be braces-free by January — not freakin six more months.

    At my last appointment, I got brackets placed on my last back teeth, which hurt like a mofo. The wire holding them in would keep on cutting my left cheek; I described to my my cousin Shiv, how everytime I would try and chew, I felt like I had a needle in my mouth that would cut/pierce me. Ouch. But fortunately, my teeth began to move to the braces' demand quickly and I got used to it, so it's all good now. And thankfully, the technician today really trimmed the wire, so I won't be scarring the interior of my cheek all too much, I hope.

    Hmm — I don't really know what I'm trying to say. I'm just irritated with the pain in my mouth at the moment. And I'm trying to get used to these rubber bands I have to wear now. They're not much fun, and I'm only supposed to take them out when I want to eat. I don't know if I'll even bother with taking them out to eat — they're too much of a hassle to put on. Maybe this can be a way to enforce a diet! Ha!

    Oooh, I sound so miserable. It's really not that bad — things have been super otherwise. I hung out at Union Jack's twice this weekend and also visited the lovely home of Katie and Josh, where I got to talk to Elizabeth and finally see Chado. Plus, I got to talk to two good friends and have already squeezed an insane number of trips and plans for October. I think it's becoming my month of choice now.

    The weather in Knoxville has been beautiful this weekend. Clear skies so that you can see the mountains in the distance and a million stars at night; you feel a cool breeze as you stand in the warm sunlight. A perfect moment in time, almost. Life is good.
