I remember it like it was yesterday. It was Mr. Seymour’s 7th grade science class and I was sitting in the back of the room trying to take notes for our upcoming test. Then it hit me all of a sudden, I couldn’t see the board! I was thoroughly confused and thrown off, not understanding what was going on with my perfect 20/20 vision. I soon came to realize… I needed glasses. As you can imagine, this was practically the end of the world, worse than the Mayans predicting that the world was actually going to end. Me, wearing glasses? I would never let that actually happen… especially in public. Thank goodness for the mastermind who created contacts!
BUT, lucky for us, we now live in a time and age where it’s not only cool to wear glasses, but people actually go out of their way to wear them (prescription or not). From that little middle school girl who would rather walk through the halls blind as a bat to the girl who now chooses to wear glasses as a fashion statement, know that it’s okay to let your inner nerd out.
