When I found out I needed glasses in 6th grade I was devastated. I was not about to start my middle school career wearing a pair of dorky glasses. So, I sat in the desks at the front of the room so I could squint and read the chalkboard without my glasses and got contacts as soon as I was old enough.
Now, as a freshman in college I love wearing my glasses! It's crazy how different people act towards you when you're wearing them. I instantly feel a sense of confidence when I put them on, and the way people perceive me is entirely different. As dorky as it sounds, I feel intelletual with glasses on, and like I'm not hiding my imperfect vision behind a pair of contacts. At Urban Outfitters they're selling non perscription glasses that give even those without vision problems a chance to rock some glasses!
