A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (May 2015-August 2018)
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?


106. Everybody notices the leaves.


9th April 2016

When someone gets new glasses it’s always the leaves that they notice first.

But that isn’t where the story begins.

It all began when I was just a little bit smaller than my current 5ft2 and 6 years younger than what I am today. The revelation that I couldn’t see. Through those 6 years I have had 6 pairs of glasses varying in colours, frames and of course prescriptions.

It is a horror when you can’t see anything just a few feet away and it brought up many struggles in school life. Everyone has frankly gotten used to me in a pair of glasses.

I think that is about to change.

It’s prom season in just a few months and I’ve been told that my glasses hide my eyes.

It’s kind of a gender stereotype that all girls want to look their best dolled up for prom; one stereotype that I live up to. So in light of that contacts are in the cards. Also shown in this diary is that I like change to varying degrees so this change will be a benefit. I hope.

I’m always iffy with stuff with my eyes, it takes about 10 minutes just to apply eyeliner with how parky I am about something in such close contact with them. But I’ve found that it is relatively easy to touch the eyeball as long as I don’t blink.

Doctor Who told me that at least.

This change could be good.

Or I don’t like it and I’ll stick with my current brown and £60 frames. You never know which road will seem the most enjoyable.

But you don’t know unless you try.

Like I said it is always the leaves that you notice first when putting on a new pair of lenses. In this case leaves are just starting to come through again so it’s that first buds that I saw first. That is the only difference to my last pair of glasses, which says something because my eyes have a tendency of deteriorating every six months and not the near two years that it has been for me. My optician Jocelyn has grew up with me throughout my eye dilemma and even she was shocked.

I think laser eye treatment is in the distant future for me. But for now its glasses and contacts. They are expensive enough even if I don’t pay for them yet.
