four eyed god....

in the land of the blind the one eyed man is king, the two eyed man's a king of the king and the four eyed man? well he is the god....
i get my prescription glasses on Monday.
i cant say i'm excited about it. my friend says i'll look like a total nerd.
i've tried to convince her otherwise and in the process convince myself that its not so bad....shes satisfied with taunting me....whatever, shes a mere two eyed specie. i'm four eyed, now how special can that be?

such an irony.
when i was a little girl,i would wear moms kaftans and her high heeled shoes, an assortment of jewelry and handbag, and the final look of adulthood, her glasses. and i would walk out of her room tripping over myself in the blurriness of her glasses and the over sized gear to play pretend in my room or wherever i could be alone, acting like i was in my own office, signing 'documents'(blank papers) like i watched mom do, and telling accountants and other officers off. that's what i get for spending every free moment i had in moms office.(can that qualify as child abuse? her not discouraging me to go play with my mates rather than hang out with her at work...lol) i digress.

if only i knew then what i know now, that i don't want to have to use prescribed glasses, let alone own one. i was given an option of contact lenses. i love my brown eyes alot, and as appealing as the idea of playing around with colors seem, i'm not up for stuffing my fingers in my eye.

i chose the next best thing to unnerdy i could find. a white framed Chanel. thus on monday i become an official four eyed fella....a god in the land of the blind.
thats special right?

  4. LOL...i remember wanting glasses and then when I got a pair when I was 10, i realised my mistake. But happily I use contacts these days...its really not bad at all. you should maybe try it? It really helped with my makeup applying skills too because my eyes used to be very nervous and now they have become 'hardened' to the idea of hands near them lol. anyway. its not that bad

  5. Yay for you.

    I remember always wanting to wear glasses in primary sch, cuz i thot they were uber cool, by JSS2, my closest friend was four eyed, and i realised that it wasn't all that.

    I kinda like the serious/nerdy look glasses wearers have tho, they can usually get away with a lot for that reason alone.

    As for contacts, i really don't fancy the stress one bit.

  7. I think glasses are cool and there's nothing wrong with looking nerdy. I wore glasses from when i was 7 - 16yrs old. Funny enough, i no longer need glasses and have very good vision. I heard the shape of ur eyeball keeps changing until u r 18, so i think that's what happened.

    Anyhoo, u won't look like a nerd, and if u pick the right pair, it could enhance ur cuteness factor.
