Word of the Day – Construe – ‘Not True’

Sorry for the late post, it was a very busy day yesterday and by the time I got back to my family's house I was dead tired.

Word of the Day – Parataxis – ‘Going Home’

To be honest, I didn't know there was a word for this, and yet it's one of my favorite things to do.

'Going… Continue reading Word of the Day – Parataxis – ‘Going Home’

Word of the Day – Extramental – ‘Beyond Me’

So I looked at Merriam-Webster's word of the day was Sericeous, which means 'covered with fine silky hair' and I honestly couldn't think of anything.

I'll… Continue reading Word of the Day – Extramental – ‘Beyond Me’

Caught up! Today's Shadow of May asked: What makes me feel fulfilled? And the answer is a short and strange one. (Honestly, the last few pieces have been rather strange. It's refreshing. Kinda.)
