8 Things All Four-Eyes Know To Be True

If you're like me and blessed with the gift of glasses, then you know a few things to be true.

1. Getting your first pair of glasses is like wiping away mirror fog that's been on your eyes your whole life.

You basically walked around your entire life as if you were in a steam bath. To be honest, people became a lot uglier once the fog cleared and that was a big shock. Food became 20 times more appetizing, or disgusting, depending who was cooking.

2. Picking out your first pair of frames was more intense than picking who your first kiss would be with.


3. You couldn't help but point out that you could see for the first time.


4. Walking into class with your glasses for the first time and sitting in the back row made you feel badass.

Well, well, well, look who doesn't need to be up the teachers ass to see the board anymore.

5. Being in a car was no longer sketchy AF.

Especially if you got your glasses after you got your license, you appreciate the shit out of them. No more guessing signs, license plates, and if that was a cop you sped past or not.

6. You thought metal frames were the superior option when you first got glasses. Then you learned better.

Yes, great idea. Put a two pound hunk of metal on the bridge of your nose for 16-20 hours a day. It's going to hurt after a while. Trust me.

7. People who wear fake glasses irk you, but then again kind of flatter you like "YAS B you wish you had my astigmatism!"

(Wearing glasses does not make you a nerd***** I know some really, really, really, stupid people who wear glasses. Being unable to see clearly has nothing to do with your mental capacity.)

8. And after all this time, nothing is more annoying than "1 or 2".

And you'd basically do anything to avoid having to go to the optometrist unless your prescription has seriously changed or your glasses have smashed into a million pieces. Because that machine that blows air into the eye, well, it sucks. And that's that.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
