Hello World, Goodbye Glasses!
So many things happening today, and it's not even a weekend. Capital punishment is being challenged, Art Spiegelman is on the front page of sfgate.com and will be in the Bay Area soon, and Sasha Cohen bags the first place spot in Olympic figure skating with this performance. Today was also a nerve-wracking day for me. I took the day off because of a scheduled surgery. Yep, I was nervous and I almost backed out, but I gathered my strength and set my mind to go through the procedure. And which procedure you may ask? I got laser eye surgery today, after yesterday's consultation with them. I was emotional after the treatment because I've been wearing glasses ever since I can remember. In a way, it is liberating, since glasses constrained me from performing certain activities. I wonder how this will change my life. And friends and family are used to seeing me with glasses. The surgery was a very quick and painless one, although I am still anxious and scared a bit. I had to take naps, take anti-biotic drops, and hope for the best. More updates tomorrow (I guess you're wondering how I can type this right now, and mind you, I'm not wearing glasses, hehe). I'm just glad it's over.
UPDATE - Sasha Cohen gets silver in the Olympics even though she got the first place spot in her short program (where she did awesome). On her long program, she fell on the ice twice. Major blow to get the gold. But her choreography was awesome though. None of the other skaters could move the ways she did. And btw, she looked great, although you can tell when she was about to start her long program that she wasn't confident.
