This morning when I woke up, I put on my glasses. I panicked because everything was so blurry and I couldn't see anything!. I thought maybe I was getting glaucoma! OMG! Then I realized that it was because I had forgotten to take out my contact lenses the night before. What a relief.

2. an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit.
I remember when I was a small child, maybe 1st grade or so, I used to laugh at the other children who wore glasses. Then one day, I think when I was in the third grade maybe, my father and I were sitting in our car in the parking lot of the shopping mall. He asked me to read to him the license plates of other cars. I couldn't. Then I remember those dreadful words...."Son, I think you need glasses". I thought to myself "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I CAN'T!! THE OTHER KIDS WILL LAUGH AT ME AND CALL ME 'FOUR EYES'." My parents drug me to the eye clinic, and I got me a pair of glasses. I felt like such a nerd.
Before that, I remember having trouble in school. My grades were very poor and my mother asked me why I never had any homework. I said "I dunno". It was because the teacher had written our homework assignment on the board, but I could never see what was on the board. After getting glasses, I was amazed at how well I could suddenly see. But.....I think I never wore them again in school because I didn't want to look nerdy. Instead, I just sat at the front of the class.
