In my interpersonal communications class they talk about self discovery and "self communication". One principal of self-communication is INTRApersonal communication, wherein one thinks about the very thoughts they are thinking about at that very moment they are thinking them. (whereas some people really don't think about their thoughts) Anyway, it really made me think!
I felt like they were describing me! Lol!
So here I am, thinking about my thoughts, which are that we have some really great words in the English language and its a shame I don't take advantage of them more. Sort of like cooking only with salt & pepper. I like a little bit more "flavor" and "spice". So then I started thinking of myriads of words I really love and would/should use more often... Myriad being one of them.
I don't know why, but words get me excited like cooking with spices does. I was ecstatic to use the word "penitential" the other day in describing my Sunday post. I mean, how often does *that* word come up, right? Then immediately, I thought of a few others...
I began to make a list- in my blackberry of course - of "words to use more often". Lame, I know.
I mean on the one hand I should want to keep things simple. I would never want come off as a wiseacre or anything. Like I really HATE when people use BIG WORDS just to show off or try to ACT like they are super educated or superior, and talk over everyone else's head.
But on the other hand, I am so drawn to words I find myself wanting to know more; to learn more. Of course the ultimate desire is then to put these words to use, apply it to practicum.
Perhaps I shall just make use of these words in moderation as not to overwhelm anyone, hehehe.
What about you? Are there words you just LOVE to use? Or wish you had the opportunity to use more?
