Glasses aren't only vision correcting and stylish... they are also ANNOYING

17 Struggles Only People Who Wear Glasses Will Relate To

I starting wearing glasses in middle school (man I found those frames again and #regrets). But throughout my years of wearing contacts and glasses, I have experienced a plethora of annoyances that most people just wont understand. Here are some of the things we glasses wearers deal with daily.

1. When you put your glasses down and can't find them... or think you lose them only to find they were on your head the whole time.

2. Sunglasses are a struggle.

You either face the sun head on, fork out a couple hundred dollars for prescription sunglasses, or play the awkward balancing game with two frames:

3. You're blind in shower (shaving is impossible) and when you go to bed.

Going to the bathroom in the middle of the night is also a nightmare. Even if you do wear them in the shower, you eventually wont be able to see anything through the water droplets anyway.

4. When it rains:

5. When you cooking, drinking something warm, or walking outside into the humidity, your glasses will fog up.

6. Your glasses constantly slide down your nose.

Also, you have permanent nose pad marks on your face.

7. You have to clean your lenses all the time.

Even if you swear you haven't touched them, they are covered in finger prints! Also, wearing non-cotton clothing becomes an issue because your outfit is often you emergency lens cleaner.

8. Picking out new glasses is stressful.

9. Makeup: overdone or underdone, there is no in between.

The glasses either cover the makeup you tried to hard to perfect, or amplify the fact that you are not wearing any.

10. “You look so much better without your glasses!”

11. You have to think twice about activities like 3D movies, swimming, hiking, etc

12. When you forget that you’re wearing contacts and try to put on your glasses anyway... I done it several times.

Or when you're wearing contacts and go to push your glasses up... haha whoops!

13. Laying down with glasses is impossible...

14. You're constantly in a competition with other bespectacled people to see who has worse eyesight.

15. Your prescription keeps CHANGING.

16. And you spend an hour readjusting to the new lenses by bumping into everything and everyone.

17. But in the end, you love your glasses and how you look in them!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
