IMG_3285I’ve received my first pair of reading glasses. On top of their magnification of words (the whole point of the glasses, I guess) I also asked for a “blue-light blocking” lens, which is rumored to help with sleep-troubles for those who are awake late into the night on their computers (read: procrastinators). While this point seems to be in contention for the medical field (it may just be placebo, after all), I can only offer the small note: they seem to be working for me. From bright orange goggles to more subtle amber lenses on websites like Etsy.com and Amazon.com, there are many inexpensive options for people with interest in giving this a try.

P.s. – it’s also quite the fashion statement, and has finally let me live out my dream of wearing red glasses! (Both my joy & glasses visible to the left).


Save the Date:
Monday, January 30th
Involvement Fair, Villanova Room, 6:00 p.m.

Kerry Washington’s birthday!
She says, “I’ve always been a writer because I’ve always been a student.”
(Which good to remember as the semester demands essay after essay.)
