Female Seeking Brunch Buddy

Adulthood is weird. You have to work to live, you have bills, your metabolism is now a laugh, and making friends is hard.

Unless you have a workplace or a social activity filled with similar minds, it’s hard to meet people. You have to really put yourself out there to create friendships, and even more effort needs to go in to maintain them. That is hard!

Adult Female Seeking Brunch Buddy

As a new adult in the world, I am discovering this and am finding myself in a slump while I seek brunch buds and shopping partners. While it’s been difficult and I find myself sitting in my apartment alone, I know that life is about taking challenges and showing them who’s boss.

Now, who’s ready for some truths I’ve found on my journey!

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.

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.Read More

What It’s Like to Be the High Maintenance Friend

We all have that one friend, the friend who is just a little bit more than a casual hangout 90% of the time. It doesn’t what you’re doing, they go that extra mile to make sure it’s more complicated/fancy/special than it was.

I am that friend. I am 100% the high maintenance friend.

When you’re the high maintenance friend, it’s not about causing inconvenience. You just expect a certain standard of things. And here they are.Read More

Just Some Words on Breakups and Relationships

I wanted this to be funny, but then I realized that I’m adding insult if I do, so it’s kind of sad and just very emotional. I apologize in advance.

I’m a hopeless romantic and I fall hard. I fall so hard that when it ends I struggle to get over it. That’s what this is. It’s an open place where we talk about something that people don’t talk about – breaking up. We live in this culture when when a relationship ends we are told immediately to get over them and move on. You don’t need them in your life and it’s time to flit to the next relationship on your path of finding your one and only. And I think that’s what happens when people do break up, they get over the mourning as soon as possible and find someone who will make them feel awesome.

But isn’t the mourning kind of important?

This is very true and shows us that there is so much more going on, than we recognize or acknowledge :( ! Missing my Bestfriend :( It mattered to me , time doesn't matter ... Fell hard , fell fast and hurts like hell. TS: Read More
