That’s right. For those of you have experienced an eye exam in order to get glasses because you’re blind, you know what I’m talking about; the glaucoma test. This is the reason why I hate having an eye exam done. This is the reason why I may or may not have minor panic attacks inside my head. When I sit down in the chair, rest my chin on the chin rest and put my forehead forward at the little bar, I start freaking out inside. My hands get sweaty, my heart starts pounding, and I clasp my hands together so tight it hurts. It’s as if this small machine was designed to gouge my eyes out, or so my body thinks.

Sure, a small puff of air doesn’t seem like a big deal, right? But it’s the fact that the puff of air is directed at your eye. I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s just a quick, short burst of air from a few inches away. It doesn’t even hurt. It’s more so the anticipation and the uncomfortable feeling of my eyes receiving a blow job. Yes, I did just say that. It scares me really and I jump every time that air shoots out because again, it freaks me out.

There have been times where I’ve had to have this attempted on me multiple times because my eyes involuntarily close. I basically have to force myself to keep them open. Plus, in general I have to open my eyes a little wider because I’m Asian! I mean, come on. In fact, it reminds me of this Friends episode where Rachael is having the same issues.

MYOB = Mind Your Own Business

I get that. When things you have don’t need to be known by everyone or when people ask about situations that have nothing to do with them and they’re only asking for the sake of knowing. Of course, they should mind their own business.

What I don’t get? When people post up things online that can be easily seen by others and then complain that it’s not other people’s business. I mean…really? For example, Facebook. Everyone and their moms, even grandma’s are on it by now. Sure, you can limit the amount of information people can see to a degree but if you’re already friends with someone, what you post is fair game.

If you’re posting a personal issue or are complaining about something that happened and someone comes in and comments with something you don’t agree with and you tell them to mind their own business? Well, I say, if you want them to mind their own business, then don’t post it on fucking Facebook for people to see. Sorry, that not everyone agrees with you or feels sorry for you. Sure, you’re looking for pity or for some vote of confidence but it doesn’t always happen. Get over it.

The other situation is, when two people are talking and someone else joins in on their conversation, then those two people get upset and are like, “this is our conversation blahblahblah.” Again people, it’s Facebook. If you want to have a private conversation, then make it private via messages or whatever, not on so-and-so’s wall.

We all know what debt is and the majority of us have it. If you’re not in debt, I ENVY you. I think it’s an extremely sad fact of life knowing that most of us will have debt for nearly our entire lives. How can we not though? Often times it’s because we have to build credit through debt. If I want to establish a credit score, I need to get a credit card or take out a loan. If you don’t have a credit score or one that is deemed “fair” or “good” then you’re limited as to what you can do. Credit is a necessity here. Sure, there are places who say things like “good credit, bad credit, we accept it all!” but I’m sure there’s a catch or whatever it is that they’re offering is a load of crap. 

I only started to think of this because…*drum roll*…I have officially paid off my credit card!! Oh sweet relief. I am so glad I don’t have to worry about paying that off anymore and I’m even more excited that it’s going to save me money each month. I made an extremely stupid decision to put some things on my credit card thinking it’d be no big deal to pay off. Big time regret. I’ve been paying for that mistake for about a year and a half or so now.

Of course, I still have other debt like my school loans and car loan, but this was really taking its toll on me. Now I can focus on paying those off. If I am ever in a situation where I am totally 100% debt free…well, I don’t know what I’d do really. I can’t even imagine that. I just know I’d be overwhelmed and probably bouncing off the walls with excitement.

So for those of you who are working on your debt like me and the rest of the world, be careful. Those magical, shiny plastic cards that get you what you want when you want it are evil. Work on eliminating your credit card/loan that has the least amount on it. Then once that’s gone you can focus on the bigger ones. Put as much money towards your payments as you can as well. I know people seem to think that working on the one with the largest amount of money should be the priority but once you have the smaller ones cleared out, think of all the money you’ll then be able to contribute towards that payment. That’s just how I roll though. If you really feel it’s necessary to do that then by all means, do what you’ve got to do.

Good luck everyone. Debt is brutal out there.
