Quick Update/NEW BLOG!

Hello everyone, long time no blog! This is a quick update to say that I am leaving tomorrow for a semester-long study abroad adventure in Peru and Chile!  If you have any interest in following my totally cliche travel blog, it can be found here:


I have still been following a number of recent jaw bloggers, who all are doing amazing so far-- you got this guys!!  

I myself have been having some discomfort with my teeth-- my upper teeth always feel pushed by my lowers, almost as if my underbite is fighting back.  The orthodontists/surgeon insist that my bite is perfect, but I feel what I feel.  It's unfortunate, but is a relatively minor issue.  I have recently seen some videos/pictures of my jaw before surgery that once looked completely normal to me, and now are almost uncomfortable to watch.  Overall, I still am very happy with the way things turned out!

It's almost midnight and I've barely packed for the next three and a half months... blogging = procrastination

  2. Hi Allie! I have no idea if you'll see this comment since this blog is so old, but I just wanted to let you know how much it is helping me. I had my surgery done 8 days ago by the same surgeon as you, so a lot of your experiences are really relatable and I love comparing my progress to yours. Your blog is helping me be prepared for what is to come!
