I need more windows
excerpt from an older thing i abandoned cause it sucked
gettin real sick of people who think being informed about their privilege means they should be ashamed of themselves/feel bad about being white or straight or hetero or whatever/apologize for being who they are.
the point isn’t to feel shame over it, the point is to be aware that some people don’t have the same social privilege you do
Found a nice place to sit for a while down in central Oregon.
I would like to tell you guys about this website, if you have not heard of it already. Zenni Optical does prescription glasses for $7USD (some frames are more expensive, but they have a LOT of cheap, and really cute choices). That includes the frames, prescription lenses, a case, and a cleaning cloth. All for seven dollars. All you need is your prescription. For a few dollars extra, you can get prescription sunglasses. This is a great resource for people on cheap health insurance, or if you just tend to break your glasses a lot and need a few extra pairs.
I just got mine yesterday, and they’re very sturdy. Better than the last pair I got through insurance, actually. And when I inevitably break these ones, Zenni has my prescription saved so I can quickly order a new pair. I picked the cheap shipping option (four bucks), and they took about a week and a half to get here, but there’s a faster option for about $14 or so.
Glasses are one of those things a lot of cheap health insurance won’t cover, which makes this an invaluable resource for anyone on a budget. They even ship internationally.
I can vouch that this website is legit and awesome. My current pair of glasses only cost me $60, you get tons of options in terms of the types of lenses+accessories and add ons for basically a fraction of the price that they’d cost at any optical store. I can’t recommend this place enough for anyone that needs an updated pair of glasses
I have two pairs from there, both of which cost me less than $30. I would definitely get glasses from them again.
I have a pair from there which cost me about $60, I went for more expensive frames and transition lenses. Still cheaper than the $230 my other pair cost me, so I cannot complain! They’re really good imo.
