I finally obtained my pair of eyeglasses last weekend, with a grade I do not clearly recall. But I know for one thing these eyeballs are not at optimum efficiency. My optometrist who checked my vision through this computer technology, judging from her, “Oh my… why’d you only check now? Oh, still can’t read that letter?” and occasional harrumphs, it was apparent m case is almost serious. One time, after reaching the stairs some months ago in CMC, a giggly classmate greeted me. She was just about six meters away but I did not recognize— no, see— her face. She went, “Ganyanan ah!”
Although glasses make you look smart (as people say), you shouldn’t act like a know-it-all. Even if it’s seemingly a stupid thing to say, people get in the act. Some people are just plain rude. There is nothing you can do about these people. Who cares what they say? If they’re harshly bashing you just because you wear glasses, take a look at them. [How to Look Cool in Eyeglasses]

In our high school plays, I used to play The Nerd. Which was effective. In college, I once played Little Sigmund Freud complete with a bright yellow top, a blue tie, an altogether preppy look, plus the glasses. Which was comic and effective. Now, I do not have to act a role just to be bespectacled. I AM BESPECTACLED. But to my self-promise, I would not wear my Levi’s salamin everyday just to not let go of my former being. I now slip them on and beyond the repaired vision, I see the universe swimming in chaos and confusion.
