Glasses and Goodbyes

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

In regards to this entry, I decided that bifocals were not going to work out with me. Almost on a spur of the moment, I decided to just get new glasses. Basically, I decided to get a new frame and make that my main glasses, and the lenses will be replaced in my current one and be my reading glasses. I plan to wear the main one most of the time and only wear the reading pair when I’m doing some intensive reading.

It may seem really weird to wear two different glasses, but my eyes simply are not made to look down. I have trouble controlling its movements and muscles, so I’ve decided to try this for now. At least I know one thing for sure: I can still read through the main one, so all will not be a loss.

Sarah helped me pick out a frame, and after bumming around Dragon for a while, we met up with Ahmi and had dinner Navy Club. Today was Sarah’s last night in Seoul, so we met up for one last time. She flies out tomorrow. She will be missed. My Friday night buddy, my fellow gaming buddy, my good friend. I’ll miss her company. However, I wish her the best of luck with her and her fiancée.

Along with her, my favourite kid at the daycare centre happens to be moving back to the states, too, and today was her last day there as well. I will miss that kid. She was one of the first kids to win me over and made me realise that kids can be okay. She was the first kid, who wasn’t in my main room, to run up to me and hug me. That really surprised me. I said to myself, “Why is a kid, who’s not in my room, randomly coming up and hugging me?” But that thought soon left my head. Her doing that just made me feel loved. So loved that I made up a nickname for her, which was “Pumpkin”, and even made up a “Pumpkin Song” for her. The song is sung to the tune of “You Are My Sunshine” and goes like this:

You are my pumpkin. My only pumpkin.
You make me happy, because you’re cute.
You never know dear, how much I like you.
So please don’t take my pumpkin away.

That became our song, and she was such an adorable kid whenever she came up to me and said, “Sing the ‘Pumpkin Song’.” I’ll miss her. I’ll miss her smile, her energy, and her hugs. I’ll miss her running to me when I call her by her name and by her nickname. She has won a spot in my heart.

    eep that’s cute! i like the pumpkin song :D new glasses? photos! we want photos :D

  2. I don’t know if I could stand bifocals either. Two different glasses actually sound like a good idea, so it doesn’t seem weird to me XD;;

    Awwwww, I think it’s cute when kids aren’t afraid of giving hugs. She sounds adorable =) Your Pumpkin song is so cute too! It’s too bad that she’s leaving.

  3. That’s an interesting way to go for this!

    I’m not too sure what bifocals are anymore, but are they the ones that are split in half?
    They might be hard to use.

    And sorry she’s moving. ;(

    I don’t wear glasses at all and I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to wear them. I hope the two glasses works out for you.

    Sorry your little friend is moving. I used to babysit this kid in my hometown that I adored, and just recently we managed to get back in touch. I bet the girl will remember you forever. :)
