Just who is Yvonne Wabai? I get this question on the daily. Who is the person behind Randomly Creative? Who keeps the cogwheels of this little machine running? Who makes sure the lights are always on in this place? Who is she? And WHY is she? Well, you're in luck, because I'll be answering that question today.
So, I made a post where I talked about refractive errors of the eye and why it's important that you get your eyes checked. You can read it here. To recap: 153 million people worldwide live with visual impairments due to uncorrected refractive errors and refractive error is one of the most common causes of vision loss along with cataracts, macular degeneration, and vitamin A deficiency. You may these refractive errors by their common names e.g. nearsightedness/shortsightedness and farsightedness/longsightedness. I also mentioned that opticians, optometrists, and ophthalmologists are different professionals, which begs the question, how? What's the difference between an optician, an optometrist, and an ophthalmologist?
We all go through tough times in life. Here are 11 quotes to help you through those rough patches.
1. Sometimes you just have to be your own hero and save your own little heart because sometimes the people you can't imagine living without can actually live without you.
2. You can't turn back the clock but you can wind it up again.
Stop what you're doing and pay attention to this immediately. If you don't already know, there's this chemical called dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO), and it is a very dangerous chemical and yet it is put in our food and drinks and deliberately sprayed onto organic crops. This chemical corrodes metals, causes tissue damage and burns, causes death by inhalation, causes electrical short circuits, causes soil erosion, and causes widespread disaster and destruction. Despite calls for the government to ban this chemical, the chemical is still being used. It's even in baby food. Baby food! Why is a chemical found in bleach and tumours being put in baby food?
It's the middle of October, and I just noticed that I didn't post the September video of the month. I started the video of the month posts to recognize the hard work of artists and today, I'd like to recognize Yemi Alade with her music video Oh My Gosh.
Imagine if you couldn't wear sunglasses. I know that seems like a really trivial thing, but just imagine it. You can't wear sunglasses. Why? Because you wear glasses. Prescription glasses. You see, there are some people whose eyesight is so bad that they can only wear glasses and not contacts and so they can't wear sunglasses unless they are prescription sunglasses. And, at that point, if your eyes are that bad, you're probably paying a fortune to see so, unless you're rich, you can't afford the sunglasses on top of the glasses you actually have to wear ALL THE TIME. Fun, isn't it? And, at this point in time, with where the earth's climate is headed to, wearing sunglasses is not about making fashion statements anymore. But hold up. What exactly is up with this person's eyes?
It's two weeks into blogtober, and I wanted to see how I'm doing so far, hence 'taking stock'. Blogtober is basically a challenge to write 31 posts, one for each day of October. I've never done anything like it before, my regular schedule is once a week, so this is quite a challenging. The stamina and coordination needed to keep up is beyond what I had imagined. I have a new appreciation for people who do this every day in addition to everything else they've got going on in their lives. Here are my achievements thus far into blogtober.
