and in other news, my plan of not wearing my glasses to improve my vision as per sgnp's suggestion seems to be working. not that i can see any better, but when i put my glasses back on for glasses-required activities, stuff looks weird, kinda. so either my prescription has changed slightly in the last few days, or i'm noticing my glasses' dirtyness more than usual. whateva. i've got an eye appt in the end of august, so we'll see what's up with them. i've been considering going with contacts, tho if i actually wanna stick with my sight-imiprovement-plan that woudlnt work too swell i think. but we'll see.
