Did you guys know that I wear glasses? Truthfully, I should wear them more often because I abuse my contact lenses and my eyeballs hate me for it. Like most people with glasses, I hated the idea of them in the beginning. I switched to contact lenses during my very first week of sailing practice in college because there was no way I was going to risk losing a $350+ pair of glasses to Lake Hefner. Since then, I have fallen in love with contacts for several reasons: giving me the ability to wear sunglasses, not having to always push glasses up because I have an Asian nose, and not being worried about walking out in the rain or opening up oven doors and having my glasses fog up.
Anyways, I'm trying to wean myself off of contacts (not completely) and I really do like the immediate change in my "look" when I put my glasses on. I have sevvveral pairs in sevvveral colors so I think I need to start wearing them more often!
I call these pictures..."midnight-let's-take-some-selfies-because-your-blog-is-lonely pictures." I think "bloggers" are really just expert selfie picture takers. Am I right? Let's get real and admit that not all of us have photographer friends. Not all of us have significant others/mothers/fathers/siblings that have the time or can always deal with us being vain and always asking for pictures. So what do we (I) do? You guys should know by now. I resort to using my tripod and remote. I know I'm not the only one.
I really am beyond worrying about what people might think about people that wear glasses. It's so common-place now and stylish even. With an issue that I once thought people judged me for, I'm now embracing it. I'm going to try and carry on this mentality when I really am "real" with you guys and post "mirror selfies" because well...it's the truth. It's really how it got done this time around. As I've noted before: this is my corner of the internet and I'll post as I please. I shouldn't let judgements get to me about: "what would they think of me if they knew this or that or if they saw/read this or that?" All of that is easier said than done but I'm just going to try to overcome judgements just like I did with the glasses.
