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.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
