From the time I was in 3rd grade, (yes 3rd grade) I've had glasses. I didn't mind them much when I was younger. I thought I was totally cool and hip. Then.... I hit the 5th grade and they weren't as cool. Thankfully I wasn't really made fun of for having to wear them. In 7th grade and figured it was time to bust out the contacts. Woot! Anyone who has contacts know what a hassle and pain in the butt they can be. You pretty much live at the mercy of how long your eyes can handle the contacts.
Since I hit the big 3-0 I feel more comfortable in my glasses than I ever have been before. I don't know if its because I don't care as much, or because glasses are cool. Maybe its because I hate putting my contacts in every morning, or maybe its a bit of all three.
Whatever it is I love wearing my glasses. Especially to work. Maybe its because working in an education setting it makes me feel smarter.-Ha!
