A Different Perspective

My glasses broke as I was heading out today morning – not exactly the best way to start the day, especially considering I was quite pumped about getting to the lab and practicing skills I picked up yesterday (I’m nerdy, I know). This simple annoyance was the closest thing to the straw that broke the camel’s back. I’ve had a decent amount on my mind since the past week, I wasn’t entirely well rested and I had a long day ahead. I didn’t need to have to drag myself to an optician to make me a new pair of glasses – not this morning at least. But I didn’t have much of a choice.

So drag myself to the optician I did and I got me a new pair of glasses made.

ust a quick mention – I felt absolutely horrified for a whole two minutes when my glasses first broke (this was before the annoyance set in). I was horrified at the prospect of what could potentially turn out to be days of not being able to see properly, let alone read, drive, do research, admire the view; all the things I need my glasses to help me do. Am so glad the happy folks at England Optical can whip up a pair of spectacles in under an hour (amazing! It’s almost magic!). I needed that hour of quiet time – spent perusing Zara and Topman and at Starbucks with a caramel frap for company. I miss me.

End of story, now it’s time for visual aids! (pun intended) Meet what helps me function everyday:

I’m also seeing my iPod a little differently – new skin 🙂D

The more you know who you are and what you want, the less you let things upset you

I’m tired, in more ways than one. Deciding that patience doesn’t always pay off is a tough enough decision to make, let alone acting upon it. I need the rest, I’m sorry.
