I generally would never have a title this long because SEO hates long titles (and also short titles so yay?) but I haven’t done a life update or a lifestyle post in a little while so I thought I would share some things that have been happening in my life because for whatever reason posts about my life are somewhat more popular than my other posts. Wow, didn’t realise ya’ll were so nosy… Just kidding, of course 😂
I talked about getting contact lenses some time ago in one of my other posts. Unfortunately, those contacts didn’t really work for me because I have kind of dry eyes and they were making my eyes even dryer which made me feel uncomfortable and made my eyes really itchy after a while. So, I decided not to get them again and try some other contact lenses and thus began some craziness in my life.
I decided to go to the optician my sister goes to even though they are awful. I’m not going to lie they seemed a bit unprofessional with the crappy job they did on my sisters glasses (her glasses lenses literally pop out occasionally lol) but I thought I would give it a go since I have bought contact lenses from them before and they were fine. So, we went to the shop and talked to them and asked them the prices and I asked them how much monthly contacts would cost since I just wanted to try a pair for a month before deciding to get them for longer. They told it would be the same price for a month and 3 months?? I decided to get them for three months obviously although I felt like that was weird and they were probably mistaken (spoiler alert: they were). I paid half the cost in advance and was supposed to pay the other half when the contacts arrive.
The next day, I get a message from them saying they can’t order the contacts for three months, the minimum they can order is for six months and the price would be double. I was obviously a little annoyed because they should have told me that before. I told them I was not willing to get the contacts for six months for such a high price just to try them so I would prefer it if they just give me a refund. Then they said they could get me contact lenses for a month (somehow??) for half the price so I was like okay… that’s what I wanted to begin with… They said the contacts should be there in about two weeks and I was okay with that.
Two weeks came and went. Another two weeks also came and went. It had been about a month and they hadn’t so much as contacted me once. I decided to contact them since it didn’t seem like they were going to contact me any time soon and I got a kind of rude response. I was told to “wait until they contact me.” Generally, I don’t get mad about things like this but I had paid in advance and instead of apologising for the delay and letting me know what the issue was that was causing the delay they just told me to wait as though I was annoying them by asking where my contacts were weeks after I was told they would arrive.
I called a couple more times and they were literally like “we told you to wait patiently till we contact you.” And then they said they would contact their suppliers to find out what the issue was (why didn’t they do that earlier like the first time I contacted them??). They said they would call back in half an hour after talking to the supplier and two days later they finally contacted me and said the supplier only sells for six months minimum so I would have to get the contacts for six months not one month as we originally discussed. I told them I didn’t want those and to give me a refund which took forever but at least I got my money back in the end. Still, no apologies for the delay, the horrible communication on their part etc.
If they had just called me after two weeks and talked to me about the situation it would have been resolved and I wouldn’t have really been mad or anything. What really irritated me was them acting like I was in the wrong for simply asking about what happened with the contacts. I thought it was ridiculous that I had to call them so many times just to get them to do their job.
I was telling MistryLand about this situation and she recommend the optician she goes to so a little while ago I went to him and got some contact lenses they had in store and I really like them so far. They are comfortable and don’t make my eyes dry at all.
The Greatest Poem Ever Written
I talked about this at the start of the year but I really want to finish my book this year. I had started writing it last year and it was going really well but I had been struggling with some writers block for the past few weeks. I had just left it alone and decided to wait until something comes to me and a couple of days ago it did! It was a poem and as the only person who has read it so far I can safely say that all the readers agree that it is the greatest poem ever written.
WordPress shows how many of your posts have been shared on social platforms like Twitter etc and I realised a lot of my posts were being shared on WhatsApp daily and I just wanted to ask- why? I see the ones on Twitter sometimes or on other stuff but since WhatsApp is private I don’t know who is sharing them and that weirded me out a little especially because I rarely write content that is useful enough to read let alone share, lol. Kidding, but I am very curious. Especially since my posts have been shared more than a thousand times on WhatsApp. Have you ever shared any of my posts on WhatsApp and if so why and with whom? Please do let me know!!!
After moving back to Kenya, I was having the hardest time finding good tofu. Some of them had a weird taste and one of them was just straight up spoilt. I had sort of learned to live without it but recently I found one I really liked and even my parents and sister liked it so yay! Very happy about this since tofu was a big part of my meals before and is a great source of protein for vegans and vegetarians.
So that’s what has been happening with my life so far, hope you enjoyed it because I
