If You Can Read This Headline Then Obviously You Don't Have These 20 Struggles Of Wearing Glasses

Eye love my glasses.

Glasses. Literally everyone wears them, but the lucky people that don't will never experience the issues of having glasses. While they are great because they make you see, they do come along with a lot of problems. Here are 20 struggles that only people who wear glasses understand.

1. Losing your glasses and needing your glasses to find them.

This happens to me all the time, but especially! I set my glasses on my nightstand, and they manage to fall into a hidden place and I can't find them because I can't see!

2. Weather.

Whenever you're walking in the rain, when you get to your destination or a dry place you have to dry your glasses. Can we just get windshield wipers on our glasses please and thank you?

3. Having to put goggles on top of your glasses.

In science classes we probably look ridiculous because, we have to put safety goggles on top of our glasses! I totally get it, eye protection but come on! Same thing with swim goggles. How can I swim?

4. Glasses always get dirty.

They always have a way of getting dirty, and you have to wipe until they're clean. Sometimes those stubborn spots take awhile to disappear.

5. People always want to try them on.

Once they try it on they say "Wow you're blind!" Really???

6. Trying to lay down is a task.

Trying to lay down without breaking your glasses is so hard!

7. You have to get so close to the mirror when you're doing your makeup.

Trying to do your makeup is so hard because you're literally a 1/2 inch away from the mirror. You can't see what you're doing either!

8. When your eye makeup is perfect but no one can notice behind your glasses.

It only took me 30 minutes to get these perfect wings and curl my eyelashes, but it goes unnoticed.

9. Money!!!!

Glasses are SO expensive which isn't right because, no one asked to have bad eyesight! You have to treat your million dollar glasses like a baby.

10. Sunglasses.

For many years I would just put sunglasses on when it was sunny, but be blind since I didn't have my actual glasses on. I bought prescription sunglasses last year and let me tell you, it was the best $300 I have ever spent!

11. When your glasses fog up.

All we want to do is eat or drink something hot but that's a challenge for us!

12. Always pushing your glasses up.

This is EXTREMELY annoying.

13. When people say you look better or different with or without glasses.

No I look the same thanks, and I can't take my glasses off because I can't see!

14. Shaving.

Such a dangerous task.

15. Picking out new glasses is so hard!

This decision is probably one of the hardest decisions we have to make.

16. Glare in pictures.

There's probably only a few pictures in which your glasses don't have a glare in them. A glare ruins the whole picture!

17. People that wear glasses for fun or fashion.

You're blessed with the gift of perfect eyesight, what conjures you to wear glasses anyway?

18. Getting called "Four eyes"

You have definitly been called this at some point in your life.

19. Amusement park ride.

Do I take my glasses off? Do I hold on to them tight? WHAT DO I DO?

20. Contacts aren't an option.

Some of us can't stick things into our eyes, so it's glasses until we die!

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

The Colors Of The Rainbow Ranked From Best To Worst

"Color is a power which directly influences the soul." – Wassily Kandinsky


The colors of the rainbow are found everywhere; in products at the store, clothing, and even in signs on the roads. Some colors stand out more than others but all in all, each and every one is there for a purpose. That purpose is most likely to grab your attention and make you notice one thing or another. All colors are great but some of them are better than others and here's why.

1. Purple

This was my favorite color, once upon a time. It was also my mom's favorite color. The color purple rarely appears in nature which makes it precious and exquisite. Purple has historically been associated with wealth and royalty but also represents creativity, wisdom, and independence. Given its rarity, seeing something purple makes it special.

2. Green

This is my favorite color now because it represents nature and all that lies in the great outdoors. The color green is everywhere; it represents life and growth. Green is soothing and relaxing while also bringing a sense of hope and adventure. It embodies me in a variety of aspects. I love adventure and am always looking to nature to bring a source of light to my life.

3. Blue

Another great color that can be seen every time you walk out the door and look up at the sky. Although blue usually symbolizes sadness, it also represents trust, stability, and intelligence. It is calming and tranquil in nature. What's better than watching the waves of the ocean?

4. Red

The color of blood and fire; representing both love and anger. Red is powerful and courageous while also being destructive and aggressive. It catches attention quickly and easily to help alert people to danger.

5. Yellow

The color of sunshine and happiness. Yellow represents energy, optimism, and joy. It is spontaneous and unstable while also being bright and attention-grabbing, but only when paired with a darker color.

6. Orange

Orange is a mix of colors rather than standing strong on its own. This color represents warmth and compassion, but it really just helps aid other colors rather than creating a name for itself. Orange reminds me of Halloween and pumpkins, but not much else.

7. Indigo

What even is indigo? This is such an irrelevant color which is why it falls on the end of my list. The only reason I know this color exists is because of ROYGBIV- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Without that, it would be a mystery; there would be no recognition behind the word.
