List 6: Favorite Words

A new series in which I share lists which I hope will help you to get to know me better. Why? Because I started this blog what feels like forever ago and there’s bound to be some new faces peering in once and awhile! So these posts are kinda like an introduction (or a reintroduction for those who’ve been with me since the jump!). A nice to meet ya, so glad you stopped by, now STAY AWHILE! Why lists? Because I love making ’em! (+ it’s the summer and I can give myself some grace when it comes to not posting overly-elaborate blog posts.)

dictionary favorite words

My favorite words are…

pompadour //
because it’s just so silly sounding

facetious //
because humor in serious situations is the story of my life

unequivocally //
because it sounds so much like what it means

resist //
because of this poem

y’all //
because second-person plural (and Kentucky)

crevasse //
because KREV-iss is crevice and kruh-VOSS is crevasse

disparate //
because why say different when you can say disparate

atoll //
because they’re a gosh darn natural wonder…see also: lagoon

summit //
because my inner voice is often a sherpa telling me to keep my eye on the prize

vanquish //
because it sounds so old-timey, dramatic, and REGAL

fierce //
because obvious reasons

wherewithal //
because it is extra

& any adverbs that end in -ly like certainly, knowingly, definitely, happily, and frequently // because I over-use them (but I’m trying to learn not to)
