I started wearing eyeglasses in 8th grade. They were very Sally Jessie Raphael, it was the 80s you know. I think my mom still has them somewhere. I remember wanting to wear glasses so bad and kind of hoping I would fail the eye test. When I did I was soooo excited to order glasses and I knew exactly what I wanted. After all I wasn't awkard enough at 5'11 and weighing in about 120 pounds. My flat chest, red hair and freckles made me uber popular with the boys...so I wanted some major stylish glasses to stand out. Right?
I wore contacts all through highschool and college because glasses were not cool at all then. Plus, it was hard to play sports in them. Fast forward a lot of years later and I am back in the glasses club. I still wear contacts...but very rarely, only when I get dressed up or when I play basketball or volleyball (which is even more rare than me getting dressed up)!
I stopped going to the eye doctor regularly because glasses were too freaking expensive to buy every year and my prescription always changed. I swear I was set up. My mind would drift back 25 years ago and I would slap my 8th grade self for ever wishing this upon myself. I'd secreted it all those years ago and it worked.
This year a lot of new companies starting popping up shattering the monopoly that has had a grip on us for so many years. You can now order glasses online...and you can do it on the cheap! I have never been so excited. GlassesUSA.com has been kind enough to offer my readers 15% off your entire order, + free shipping on all orders over $50. *See the discount codes below. I've ordered eyeglasses online before and intend to do it again, and again.
I guess I really haven't changed much over the years. I still wear big thick framed glasses, I still have some freckles, and I still like 80s and 90s rap. Or course I'm still quite tall...but no longer 120 pounds and I actually miss all those freckles.
