The phone rings and I answer, "Thank you for calling Business Systems this is Mandy how can I help you?" The voice on the other end asks for Amanda and I reply, "This is she". The voice says she is calling to remind me of my 4:00 PM dental appointment. I sigh and tell her I will be there. I enter the building and walk over to the elevator; I push the up button and patiently wait. The elevator door promptly opens and I get in. I push the button with a two on it and the doors close, up I go. Once on the second floor I exit the elevator and immediately I can smell the mixture of wintergreen flavored tooth paste and bleach out in the hall even before I go into Dr. Adelson's office. As soon as I open the outer door, the blast of cool air from the air conditioner hits me in the face making me shiver all over. I walk in and add my name to the list on the sign in sheet. Harriet, the gray hared women behind the white frosted glass slide window, sees me and lets me know the doctor will be ready in a minute. While I wait for the dental assistant in her crisp white uniform to call out my name, I look at the fish in the large blue tank in the corner of the room. The sleek fish dart about playing hide and seek with the plastic mermaid at the bottom of the tank while tiny silver bubbles slip to the top of the tank"s surface and break silently while I wait my turn. Then I turn and look to see a photo album sitting on a coffee table. I pick it up only to see pictures of decaying teeth and gums. I quickly close the book and shudder at the thought as I roll my tongue over my teeth and thank God they are all there. The nurse calls my name and I enter the inner office and sit in the brown leather chair looking at all the shiny stainless steel equipment. As I sit down the bright overhead light momentarily blinds me; I feel like a deer about to meet his death"¦then I realize, it"s my turn.

Did you ever stand in front...Did you ever stand in front of a huge pile of homework and just couldn't concentrate on it? That happens to me a lot. In school the whole day and when you're home at last do homework?! That's murder! But I learned some tricks once for concentrating on homework. I never used them when I learned them, because I didn't need them then. But now I have to get into the habit of using them. The first trick is: keep your desk clean! It's just nicer to work on a surface that looks like a Japanese garden than on one, that looks as if a world war had taken place on it. If the working conditions are nicer, people just tend to work harder without feeling worse and more tired. If there's lots of stuff on your desk just put it onto the floor. Who cares about what's on the floor if you are working on the desk?! Another thing that goes with keeping your working area clear is to keep nothing in your eyesight that might distract you. With me, for instance, if I see a guitar at my working area, even if it's just in the corner of my eye, after a while I'll pick it up and play it. It's just hard to concentrate on something you don't like doing if you can see something you'd like to do. The next trick is to write down what you have to do for homework on separate little notes. Also write down the time you started doing that piece of homework and the time you think you'll be finished onto each note. After you are finished also write that time down. That will keep you going because you're racing against time, but after a while you just can't think anymore. So, after every 10 minuets open the window and walk around the room for 1 or 2 minutes, to let your brain cool down. After every half-an-hour take a 5 minuet break and leave the room if you want. Don't forget to come back after 5 minuets! I do think all this does help, but it takes a lot of discipline. Always making these little notes and watching the time, etc. But just try and see how you do. Now you might be thinking: "What's this crazy guy talking about?! With all this note taking and having breaks it will take even longer to do my homework!" But you'll be surprised"¦
