Hey everyone, I got glasses! February 2016 is the month where I’ve changed basically everything in my life. I AM NEW TO EVERYTHING. New hair, new job, new face.
I’m reinventing myself, you see. Kind of. Maybe not.
A few weeks ago, I was at Hayley the Tea Party Beauty’s house when I robbed her glasses and put them on. Because I’m totally the type of person that if I see something I can put on my head or face somehow, then I’ll put it on my head or face.
So basically, I’m a child.
But a miracle happened. I put them on and I could see clearly!
I’ve always prided myself on having perfect vision. Apart from that one time when I was 8 and I tried to fake an eye test because a girl came to school in glasses and I thought it looked cool so I decided I wanted some.
How I knew I needed glasses
Early in 2015, I was snowboarding with my housemate and I couldn’t read a sign on a wall. My housemate could and she casually mentioned that my eyes must be bad if I can’t see it. I didn’t think much of it because I just thought it was far away.
It wasn’t until my Pretty Little Liars obsession kicked in that I realised I had a problem.
You see, I don’t usually watch TV because I am basically the internet. We are one. Flicking through the TV guide, I was struggling to read the information on my 32-inch TV. Also, whenever the characters got text messages I could barely read it. I would actually pause it, take a photo on my phone and read it that way. I still wasn’t sure if it’s because the TV was far away or poor quality. Or I was just tired or drunk or both.
But when I put Hayley’s glasses on, it all clicked into place.
Going for an eye test
I booked myself an eye test the next day and went into Spec Savers where I kind of felt like I was on a conveyer belt. Who knew that the opticians were like this? There were so many staff working and I kept getting passed from one person to the next. I had to look through a thing and focus on a balloon. I had to give them my details. I had to see the optician who changed the lenses faster than I could tell him if it was better or worse or the same and suddenly I could see all the letters on the screen.
Then he took the funny glasses off me and everything was blurred again.
Then I had to see more people and one of them blew air in my eyes and it was the worst thing in the world. I told the woman who did it I was never coming back.
Then I had to see more people and pick my glasses and they took photos of me wearing the glasses with an iPad and told me to come back in a week.
Getting my new glasses
So I came back in a week and then women sat me down and got me to try the glasses on. She asked me if they fit okay and I was like I don’t know. Then she started touching my ears and I was not a fan, of this as I hate being touched, especially by strangers. But she kind of smelt nice so it wasn’t the worst thing in the world.
But still, do not touch me.
Then she kept asking me if they sat right on my nose and I was like I don’t know what I’m doing here, you tell me. So she figured it out for me and bent them a bit.
And now I have glasses.
My life is now in HD. It’s beautiful.
Also yeah I had to photoshop the sunglasses because it had a reflection of my bed which was a mess and I didn’t want you all to know I’m a slob. Even though you basically know now because I just admitted it. Good job a lot of you just look at the pictures. Loool 😀
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the story of how I got glasses. What are you up to this weekend?
