Every Sunday I’ll get the chance to tell you what’s going on in my life, what I’ve posted for the week, what to expect in the upcoming week and posts I enjoyed from other bloggers.

In Real Life

On Tuesday I found out that I NEED GLASSES!!!! I’m strangely excited over this development being the ONLY person in my family of five that does not wear glasses. In fact I use to be so jealous of my family members that I would lie to the eye doctor as a child to try to cheat myself to some specs. I guess I did it in a rather obvious way because my results made it seem as if I was legally blind yet I wasn’t running into any walls making the whole thing fishy…darn my nine year old brain!

But at twenty two my eyesight has definitely decreased in quality. I can still legally drive without them and such, I’ve just noticed words farther away are becoming more difficult to read and you all know how much I love words, so I couldn’t let this continue.

The eye doctor deemed my eyes glasses worthy, saying that I wasn’t required to actually wear them for anything but that I would see better with them. I know it doesn’t really make sense but I DON’T CARE because now I get to wear glasses!!! Although I am a little afraid that it’s going to be like my excitement over riding the bus the first time. Will glasses start to lose their charm after a while like the bus did?

That’s pretty much it for this week, though next week will feature some exciting developments. One of which is an interview for a possible job (which I desperately need to feed my book buying habit) and the other is TOP SECRET, but shall be shared if everything goes smoothly.

My friend is starting a blog soon and she wants to water mark her photos. Does anyone know of a free photo editing site that can accomplish this?

In Their Shoes: Hermione Granger

In Their Shoes: Hermione Granger

In Their Shoes  is a feature in which I pretend to take the place of famous characters in fiction. I’ll share my thoughts as I go through the story that the original character goes through. I’ll be replacing the character, or stepping into their shoes if you will, and sharing MY thoughts (note not sharing […]
