When I was 15 I had a REALLY bad case of pink eye. I know, gross. I couldn't wear contacts for a year and I had to use like, 4 different kinds of eye drops a day, and it seemed like I was at the optometrist's office every other day. Because of that gross problem I have scars on my corneas (mostly my left one) and I get weird infections, bouts of bad dry eye, and just general eye discomfort pretty frequently. I also have astigmatism in my left eye. And my prescription is -6.50. AND I have to wear daily disposable lenses instead of the ones you take out every night and can use for 2 weeks or a month or whatever. I should wear my glasses regularly to give my eyes a break from the lenses, but my glasses Rx isn't up to date so it's hard to see and they sort of give me headaches.
All that to say, right now I'm going through one of my bouts of the dry and burning eyes. I have some steroid drops that I use when my contacts aren't in but OH MY GOSH it's so painful! My eyes have been all squinty and red and I basically just look high all the time. It's really fun. I have an eye appointment next week and I'm going to update my glasses prescription so CALM DOWN I am working on fixing things.
Doesn't this make you want to hang out with me so you can be subject to my fun infections? Which, by the way, are not contagious because nobody has ever come down with an eye infection after hanging out with me. So I'm not THAT gross. They're probably not even infections, just inconveniences.
I routinely rewatch shows on Netflix. I've watched Parenthood, Breaking Bad, and Orange is the New Black three times, The Office like a billion times, and I'm working on the third round of Sons of Anarchy. I like to put Netflix on when I'm doing dishes or getting ready for work, and I can usually get through shows pretty quickly if they're just background noise. What shows do you love to watch over and over again?
3. Being sort of healthy
For the whole month of January I was basically the healthiest person on the planet. In this post I wrote about the changes I'd been making, but once February hit I started slacking BIG TIME. I'm still buying mostly healthy foods and prepping lunches and drinking tea, but I'm also reverting back to my old habits of not working out and eating lots of candy. Send help. And broccoli.
4. Curating Instagram?
Do you curate your Instagram feed? I LOVE looking at feeds that have a "theme" and have beautiful pictures, and I want my Instagram to look like that. On the flip side, I love seeing peoples' "real life" posts, where you get to see their real, unfiltered lives. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. Hashtag first world problems.
5. Thinking of a 5th thing
I literally could not think of a 5th thing to post. So now, thanks to this post, I know that my life is sufficiently boring. And you've all been subjected to the boring-ness! YOU ARE SO LUCKY. YOU'RE WELCOME.
