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

Each of these people have done so much for me, and I can’t imagine my life without them. Which is why they deserve some very public thank you’s like the peeps at the Academy Awards.

I would like to thank…Read More

Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Program

Hiya Enthusiasts!

This post is not going to be our regularly scheduled program, but it is a plea to myself to get back to my regularly scheduled program.

Wow, how many times can you say regularly scheduled program?

The thing about writing on the Internet is that you can hide behind the screen. That’s why people post nasty comments on YouTube and people get Catfished. It’s also a way for writers to continue doing their writing and pretend that everything is fine, even when it’s not.Read More
