My parents don't want me wearing contacts 'cause of its downsides. If i weared contacts, it would have been for the whole day. And i gotta change glasses often to adjust to my eyesight. So changing contacts each year isn't very economic.
I've been told that i look way better without glasses 'cause of my eyes color. They are brown.

I am never going to wear contacts, mostly cause only 1 eye needs improvement. I have lazy eye for the right one, used to wear glasses for a year, opthalmologist said it was better and if I like, I don't need to wear em anymore. 5 years down the road, after brilliantly listening to her and not my parents, I can barely see out of my right eye.I mean I can see, but with heavily impaired vision. Tried my old glasses, don't fit me though, and they definitely helped the vision. Thing is, now I do need to see a doctor and get prescription glasses. I truly don't mind, cause I love wearing glasses.

    I have a very, very light prescription for my glasses, and I only really wear them in the cinema so I don't get a headache from trying to focus on the screen from the back row.

    I just figure I'm going to lose mine heh. Seriously, I just got up and I already lost them once. They turned out to be in my pocket, but the point still remains. I also can't seem to get them clean, which is going to get on my nerves.

    I'm having a bit of trouble breathing at the moment, so I might leave for a minute to find my inhaler.

    I used to wear contacts, but then I forgot to renew them so for now, I only got my glasses. Which I got an appointment for soon, since It's been like 1-2 years since my last appointment and the frame is getting a bit too small so I'm getting new frames also :3

    There are special cleaner for glasses. I buyed one who contained 20 cleaners for just 1$. I lose my glasses often and it's a pain to search for them.
    And it seems there are a lot of people in PC who wear glasses.

    Still too lazy to go clean my glasses, so I just am not wearing them. x; I'll do it eventually when I remember to.
    My bathroom is being overrun by spiders. I just killed two of them within seconds of each other. The downside to living near water. D;

    Elendil, wasn't that a few days ago that you started cleaning it? Haha.

    I totally hate spiders. If i was you, i would have left the house just for them.
    Happy for you Elendil. Now proceed to your new quest : finding the left shift.

    I don't like them, but I'll deal with it. .-. I like living near to water, so I'm just going to be stuck with mass amounts of bugs. Though the water is too gross to swim in or anything, but I know people who do it anyway.

    Here's a worse idea: What if they fly?

    Well you can tell if a bug has wings from what it looks like, and they can't fly without wings. So I wouldn't worry too much about that honestly.

    I know there are certain spiders that can jump:



    I'll get back to you on whether or not there's a species with wings. So far I haven't heard of spiders developing wings.

    Also, here's a bird eater:

    Yeah one of my biggest fears is that I'll suck it up and try to kill a spider and then it will jump on me.

    On the subject of arachnids, let's include scorpions as well:



    Cute little Pandinus, ain't it.

    Emperor scorpions are kept as pets by a lot of people, though their sting is relatively mild unless you're allergic to anything around the severity of a bee sting.

    @Toujours:

    Don't worry, it's a urban legend that spiders will crawl into your mouth to drink saliva at least once in your life, I swear.

    LOL. Reminds me when my teacher saw an urban legend myth on TV where a girl smelled flowers and a spider went inside her nose and it made a web inside the nose and the had to operate the girl so they could take off the spider, web and all the eggs that were inside.

    My teacher knew it was fake but it freaked her out so much that now she smells flowers from an arm's length xD
