Everything began between 2012 and 2013 when I realized that I was not 100% happy in my profession. I am a dentist, graduated by the School of Dentistry | UNESP - Campus of Nottingham, master and doctoral degree in Operative Dentistry by UNESP - Campus of Araraquara and a Professor from the University for 10 years! Being in the classroom, studying, teaching, participating in research projects always made me very happy! But the university life is very different from all this! And the day to day was taking care of me and I stopped being that very excited person. I realized that I was going through a crisis of professional identity. But the worst was not realizing my state of mind. The worst was to take into account that I didn't know how to change this feeling, how to get out of the crisis. Parallel to all this, I realized that on April 2014 I would be 40 years and was inevitable not to reflect who I really was and what I wanted for my life for the future! It was then that I started to remember my childhood and adolescence and I realized that I was always a very creative person! I was involved in a thousand different things: organizßed and created games with my friends, animated children's parties, loved the lessons of art education in college, never missed an episode of the Bambalalão Program on Cultura Tv Channel, only to watch the puppet theater and "do it yourself” lessons from Professor Parapopó (I know that most of you have never heard of this program - it is really old - but it was too good! When I started to focus on the entrance exam, I was leaving all that aside! And the more I am involved with the University and with the responsibilities of the day, the less I exercised my creative side! You cannot imagine how painful it was to notice that I had completely forgotten the right side of my brain! Until one fine day I wondered: what prevents me from being creative in the profession that I have chosen? Absolutely nothing!!! At that moment, I felt an explosion of anxiety and happiness! I cannot describe the exact moment, but it was during this emotion that the idea of assembling a blog was born:a space where I could talk about Dentistry in a different and creative way! A free space for creation, to invite your friends to be part of this new game! A place where I could try a new form of communication! The result of all of this is here: the Opalini Blog was born and is now 9 months old! Today I am happy doing what I love! You are all very welcome! This space is ours! Come be part of this project!
