These are a few of my favorite things words...
Growing up, math just never “added up” (cheesy, but true). It turned out to be a subject that I struggled with as a child, and has continued to be a nuisance in my life. The fact that my math results on the SATs rendered the response “That’s MUCH better than I expected!” from my mother just shows that math has never been one of my “talents”.
“English” class (grammar, spelling, syntax/diction) has always been my strong suit,from elementary school through my college years. Even in a subject that may be challenging, as long as papers are involved in the syllabus, I will do just fine. Tis’ a shame that math class never required essays..
Therefore, it is fair to say that I am a fan of words, and I have been able to compile a list of my favorites. Some of these words I tend to use (too) frequently, others I just love the sound of.
To each their own..
(the phrase “epitome of pretentious” is a favorite phrase. Those two words just sound magical together.)
