I've found that growing up means being honest. About what I want. What I need. What I feel. Who I am.
If you ever feel like you are stuck with whatever choices you make when you're young, please remember that: Van Gogh didn't start painting until his 20′s, Alan Rickman got his first movie role at age 46, Kentucky Fried Chicken was launched when Colonel Sanders was 65, Charles Darwin was going to be a preacher, Mick Jagger studied accounting and finance, J.K. Rowling was 32 when Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published.

12 years of school, 4 years of uni, and more to come for Masters and Ph.D. I don't educate myself to end up cooking for you. #wouldyoumarryagirlwhocan'tcook

People tell me I'm lucky. I'm like, you don't even know what I had to go through to get here.

My 20's aren't my selfish years. My 20's are my hustle decade. Finish school, get money, pay back my loans, establish myself, work hard to create the foundation of a good life so that I can enjoy what's coming next. Like yes, I'd love to backpack across India or something, but I'm broke! I have bills! I could quit my job, take my meager savings and go on a 2 month trip, and then what? No job, no home cause I got kicked out for not paying rent, lmao. Enough. Maybe your 20's were the fun-time years decades ago but not anymore. Don't feel like you're wasting your life because you're not hitchhiking in Europe or something. You're doing fine. You're doing what you can, and that's all that matters.

You ask what I have done with my life. Why I am 22 with so many unfinished selves. So many futures I could not commit to. But you don't know how much of my time has been spent keeping myself alive.

A self-proclaimed avid fan of Firmoo, I currently own a small collection with a few previously sent for me to try and others that I have purchased with my hard earned coins. When I was most recently browsing the sit, this model in particular caught my eye (*wink*) because of the bright indigo color of the frames and the rainbow stripes on the inside of the temples. When I received them in the mail the shade was not as vibrant as shown on the website, but still a pretty shade of deep blue. I was initially hesitant about ordering this shape since I have a rounded face, but because they are on the larger side they compliment me quite well.

For the price I am again very impressed with the quality of these eyeglasses. The weight is light so they feel comfortable to wear all day without sliding down the bridge of my nose or causing headaches. This pair came with the 1.5 index stock lenses which are suitable for my sight, however there are many additional upgrades for those with more complex prescriptions or those who wish to further customize their pair.

If you are new to Firmoo, they offer an easy to follow, step-by-step process to order your exact prescription, frame size, and lens selections in a matter of minutes. For further questions I have utilized their customer service a few times in the past and have always had a warm, pleasant experience with whomever I spoke with. There are countless options to choose from for all vision needs, and with a constantly stocked Daily New page you are sure to find the right specs for you.

Do keep in mind that many of the frames run big and so it is essential to have your current pupillary distance measured by your optometrist. Looking up customer photos or using the virtual try on feature can also be helpful in selecting the best-fitting pair for your face shape. Another tip would be to keep the cleaning cloth that comes with the case as it is made from a fabric that thoroughly cleans these type of lenses.

As the folks at Firmoo are always so generous, all new customers can receive 15% off of their first pair.
