No Sir, Eye Don't Like It

Fun Fact: I just started a job that requires me to stare at a video game for eight hours a day.

The job part is awesome; the eye-strain is not. I did get used to it after a little while last summer, but now, only two days into the job, my eyes are still adjusting. Looking at my computer and typing something interesting is not what I want to do right now, so for the rest of the week, give or take a little, expect me to phone in my blogging.

For instance, instead of coming up with something of my own to say today, I'll direct you to a very funny article by a very funny guy.

You are a very lucky guy.

Everyone should do what they love if the opportunity is available.

I used to sit in front of a computer screen 8 hours a day. I found glasses with a non-glare and UV protection coating helped eliminate my eye strain. You can get them with a prescription or non-prescription lense.

Good luck.

Thanks, thanks, and thanks.

Like I said, I had this job last summer, as well, and I got used to it after a little while, so I'm not too worried about getting new glasses. I just need a few days to let my eyes cope.
