Close Your Eyes and Listen

On Monday (3/16), as I sat down comfortably in third period waiting to do the warm-up problems for Spanish class, I realized my glasses was GONE. Out of MIND and out of SIGHT (literally). After the first time you can’t find something you need, you proceed to go into this pre-panic zone and dig frantically to find what you need. When that one thing does not appear the second time, this is it, you are planning out all of these scenarios and one thing leads to the next and before you know it, the final scenario is of you and maybe your dog, out on the streets, homeless. I don’t know about you but I’ve thought of this plenty.

I was getting worried on how I was going to survive the rest of the class, much less the rest of the school hours. Thankfully on that day, we did mostly worksheets so thank you God, I survived. Now onto the most important class, Precalculus. For some reasons, I didn’t want to bother anyone and have to ask to move seats just so I could see, so I really did what you might’ve thought I’ve done: I sat there the entire time pretending to write down notes, but really I was just writing about how I can’t see anything in sight. Reading the board without your glasses is like trying to read Morse code and finding a needle in a haystack. It’s not recommended!!!

Eventually I decided to try my best and just…LISTEN. I listened really hard to what my teacher was saying. Surprisingly I was able to get through a few examples. Another class done…now I’m STILL panicking. I needed to find this glasses because, okay, I might survive today, but the rest of the week is going to be HELL.

So during lunch I traced myself back to my second period. My first instinct was to look in the trash can just in case I threw away the glasses as I dumped out my Cheetos bag. Again, thankfully I didn’t do that.

I walked towards my desk and looked beneath my table. IT IS HERE!!! I am saved. I couldn’t be happier. The world is lookin’ perfect in these glasses. My vision is 20/20…and those cute boys over there look 10/10.

Moral of the story: don’t take your senses for granted…and listen more.
