Your #InternationalWomen’sDay Book List

Today is International Women’s Day, and I am so proud to be standing side-by-side with so many amazing women in this world. Everyone deserves a voice, and it is a day like today that reminds us what a voice women have.

Some of these voices are shown in literature in amazing feminist books that everyone should read. They make us laugh, they inspire us to action, or they tell a story of exactly what life has been like for women in the past. I hope you will take time during Women’s History Month and read a few.

#InternationalWomensDay Book List

*Note: These books are only a few of great books that I’ve read (that are more mainstream), there are many more out there (that are amazing and just not as popular on Barnes & Noble shelves) and I encourage you to open up your library like I will be doing this month. Continue reading

Favourites Friday #65: Songs of {sorta} Spring

As we welcomed March this week, I expected Spring to peek it’s head out and welcome us with greenery and sunshine.

Instead it’s been grey and rainy.

The Pros & Cons of Anosmia {lack of smell}

You know how we all have those quirky things about us? Mine is that I can’t smell.

Ever since I was little, scent has never bothered me. I figured it was because I’d never experienced anything too potent enough to offend me. But the older I got, the more I realized I didn’t know any scents. You could stick a toilet brush under my nose and I’d grin, saying, “Smells great!” because I cannot smell – at all.

pros-cons-of-smelling

After doing research about exactly what could cause my anosmia {the lack of sense of smell} I’ve come to two conclusions about what it could be.

  1. Despite the sense of smell being early developed in a fetus, the eight weeks I was born prematurely clearly were defining weeks in developing my nose.
  2. Someone stuck something up my nose before my cognitive memory came about and it feels so natural I have no clue, similar to 30 Rock’s Tracy Jordan.

No matter what the problem is, I have survived nearly 22 years on this planet without being able to tell the difference between a rose and garbage truck and I thought I would share the pros and cons of only have four senses. Continue reading
