Well, I finally did it: I GOT CONTACTS! They are the greatest freaking investment I have EVER MADE. No longer will I have to wear stinkin' glasses (except for certain situations -- I got a backup pair of glasses just in case). The peripheral vision of these things is incredible. It's almost like using your own eyes! Plus, my self-confidence has been soaring today so that's yet another excellent benefit of them. Yup...contacts are freaking amazing!! Sure am glad I got 'em. Now all I have left to do is reach my personal goal of 10% bodyfat and I'll be set.
