Glasses are Hott
I got new glasses this weekend.
They are awesome. I also got sunglasses. I have wanted a pair of prescription sunglasses for...um..I don't know...5 years....and I now have a pair.
Funny story about how I started wearing glasses.
When I was young, maybe 7 or 8, I thought glasses were really cool, and I wanted a pair. I even went as far as asking my parents, at this age, for an eye exam. I passed it, but I was determined to wear glasses.
I don't know why I wanted to wear glasses. I just thought they were really cool. I think a part of me wanted people to think I was really smart. Sure, I wanted people to think I was pretty, or cute, but if I just had a pair of glasses people would think that I was really smart. Right? I mean, all the smart girls on t.v. wore glasses...
So, I think in the third grade they started having yearly eye exams in classrooms. I passed every year...until the fifth grade. I still really wanted a pair of glasses by this time, and I had been passing the eye exams with what seemed like flying colors. How was I ever going to get to wear glasses if my eyes were fine?
So, I did what every reasonable kid in my shoes would do when they really want something they can't have...I lied. Just a little! I told the eye exam lady that I couldn't really see a couple of letters...yeah. :)
But!! I went to a real eye doctor...after the school eye exam, and he did an exam, and I actually did kinda need to wear glasses.
So I got my glasses. I loved them...and I still love them. And as the years went by my eye sight got worse worse, and now I can't see 2 feet past my nose.
My mom and or step dad are going to read this and:
a) will think it's really funny
b) be really mad at me.
Either way I think I am going to get a phone call later....
So I had a great weekend.
I tried to stay away from the computer and working...
It's funny that when you work for yourself, at home, you forget that you can take a day off.
So I tried...
I also got two awesome things in the mail!
Friday I received two piece from Megan Chapman!
She holds a contest every few weeks, on her blog, and you can win original art from her :)
You should check it out. I think she is having a little give away right now!
So check it out. Plus she writes great blogs, with wonderful advice and perspectives, on being an artist.
Then on Saturday I received some very tasty coffee from BrainScan coffee, which can be bought on Etsy! It is really good...really good.
Between her coffee, and the Stumptown coffee...I am set!
Alright. This is a long post, but I guess I had a little catching up to do. :)
Have a good Monday.
