It s not until I catch a cold or come back from a loud concert that I realize how difficult it can be to live with an impaired sense. Not being able to taste or smell can make a weeklong cold unbearable — I just love food too much. A home-cooked meal sends my senses through the roof.

Unfortunately, years of blaring my headphones, going to concerts and grinding my teeth every night since I was little has caused hearing loss in both my ears. My television volume is usually set at more than 30 and I always sit in the front of the class so I can hear my professor.

In this issue, Klipsun explores several senses by examining sensory learning, the culture of the deaf community and how food presentation affects taste, as well as some unique senses like a sense of direction or sense of humor. We even explore the senselessness of making a penny.

Last but not least, I would like to wish Klipsun a happy 40th birthday. It s been an incredible 40 years and I wish the best of luck to future Klipsun staff.
