All through high school, me and my bestie were in complete denial that we needed glasses. Instead, we would squint at the whiteboard, at the TV and at oncoming buses hoping to make sense of our blurry world. When we finally both got glasses, we didn’t wear them all the time, even if it helped us to see. Nowdays, she wears contacts full-time and I wear glasses full-time.
Even though I wear glasses 90% of the time, if you flicked through my Facebook photos, you wouldn’t know I wear glasses. I wear contact lenses on special occasions and photos of me reflect this. I guess I’m not that comfortable in my glasses. I’m used to seeing the world through my glasses, but I’m not used to seeing myself in the mirror with them on. Maybe it’s time to get new glasses.
I’ve signed up to Pinterest recently and pinning a whole lot of hotties wearing glasses has given me more confidence and I think it’s about time I invested in some sexier specs. Am I right in thinking that glasses these days are much cooler than when I was at school? New glasses aren’t exactly cheap, but I think it’s a worthwhile investment.
The glasses I’m wearing now were chosen years ago. I bought metal frames because I wanted them to last forever. My last pair were plastic and were crushed when I accidentally kneeled on them, crushing them into two. When my prescription changed, it was minor so I skipped getting my glasses updated, but maybe it’s time to get new lenses and new frames too. Just because my frames last for all of eternity, doesn’t mean I can’t get new ones. I’m not a hipster, I actually need glasses to see.
Do you wear glasses? Do you like them? What kind do you have? Do you have more than one pair?
