I got contact lenses on Christmas Eve. It’s super exciting to not wear glasses anymore but it’s also super embarrassing because I’m 20 and I’ve never tried contact lenses before. I never went through a “glasses make me look so nerdy” phase in high school so the thought of getting contacts never really occurred to me. The reason why I got contacts is because I really really love the colour purple. I really love wearing purple eye make up but I always have to wear it underneath my purple framed glasses and everyone laughs at me when I do because I end up looking like I’m really obsessed with the purple. (I am, but I’m not a PDA type of girl)
So yeah, wearing contacts has been a lot of fun so far. I look so different that I don’t feel like I’m the same person anymore. I feel like Spiderman when he first got his powers and he didn’t need to wear glasses anymore. But I keep feeling tired all the time without my glasses though because the only time I ever took my glasses off was when I was going to bed, so it’s like I keep tricking my brain into preparing myself for sleep mode.
Omg I’ve just realised something: I celebrated Christmas this year WITHOUT MY GLASSES! Tomorrow is gonna be my first day of work…WITHOUT MY GLASSES :D Oh wow I totally need to get one of those baby’s firsts books and celebrate everything about my new life because I’m living life WITHOUT GLASSES NOW. WOOO YEAH!
Omg my contact lenses are so soft and squishy like jelly and you can fold them and flip them inside out and there’s this REALLY CLEVER TRICK which can help you tell whether a lens is flipped inside out or not. I really wanna try those contacts which shape your corneas while you sleep and then you take them out when you wake up in the morning and get perfect vision. Contact lenses are such cool things :D
(Ok maybe I shouldn’t post really late in the night because I probably think that I sound pretty normal right now and tomorrow morning I’ll realise I actually sound really far from normal)
