21 Struggles Girls Who Wear Glasses Know

Eyelashes. All the eyelashes.

21 Struggles Girls Who Wear Glasses Know
Carla Angel Petts

Wearing glasses is a difficult life that so many people live each year. Luckily, we can see. Unluckily, there are several downsides to wearing glasses.

1. Laying down while wearing glasses

You try watching television while laying down. It's not easy, and it's not fun.

2. Rain

Why don't they make windshield wipers for your glasses?

3. When they get dirty

Spoiler alert. They are ALWAYS dirty.

4. Having to clean them

You never have the right cloth, and your shirt is never the right material.

5. Doing your makeup

I have been known to sit in the sink to be able to see my makeup as I do it.

6. Then your glasses then cover it

Why did I just put on three different eyeshadows only to have them covered by my glasses?

7. "Why don't you just wear contacts?"

Because I got one stuck to the bottom of my eyeball and had to go to the doctor to get it removed. Okay? Let me live my life.

8. Sunglasses

How am I supposed to wear two pairs of glasses? Huh?

9. Formal events

Sometimes you just don't want to be wearing glasses.

10. Adjusting them

Whether you push them up by the side or by the center, they always end up just slightly wrong.

11. Eyelashes

Eyelashes and glasses are just an all around problem. Eyelashes get on your lens and then you can just barely see it. If you push your glasses up too far, your glasses hit them. It's never fun.

12. Friends trying them on

"Wow, you're like really blind!" No. They're just for looks. Now can you give them back?

13. 3D movies

The lenses never match up with each other, making you uncomfortable for the next hour and a half.

14. Temperature changes

Oh, you just wanted to check on that thing in the oven? Nope. You can't see it.

15. Makeup gets everywhere

You mean you wanted your foundation to stay on your nose and not the inside of your glasses? Too bad.

16. The glare

Heaven forbid you want to take a selfie while your computer is open in front of you. Need to use the front flash? Try again.

17. Losing them

How am I supposed to find my glasses without my glasses?

18. When your prescription changes

So now I have this useless pair of glasses that I will only use when trying to find my current pair.

19. "Here let me put them on for you!"

No. They go under the hair. Down, straighten them out, then push them on. By the sides. Not the... just let me do it.

20. Put them on top of your head.

Good idea! They sit there so nicely. Until you go to take them off and they are tangled in every hair on your head.

21. Hugs

Please don't hug me so tightly my face presses into my glasses. Now they're dirty again.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
