Opening in concrete block wall doesn't evenly divide by glass block sizes. Now what?

Construction-knowledgeable mefites, I have a home built in the 40s with a 39.5 x 44.5 opening in one of my basement rooms. This is close but not quite for glass block. What's best practice here?
Additional info: Planning on using Pittsburgh Corning loose glass block (local!) that I'll mortar together. Not trying to make an architectural statement here. Trying to deal with a broken pane on the old window.
Piggyback question: do I need to put a vent in the window? I'm leaning towards not putting a vent in.
