Words of the Week for January 28th, 2019
Diane’s word of the week is ataraxia, which means, according to Dictionary.com, “a state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquility.” Her anxiety has been acting up this past week, so she’s hoping to achieve ataraxia at some point this week.
I want more than just peace of mind—I want ataraxia.
Jasmine’s word of the week is pandiculation, which means, according to Dictionary.com, “the act of stretching oneself.” There isn’t any special meaning behind this word for her; she simply enjoys the act and wanted to share an uncommon word.
My favorite part of the day is nap time, but the pandiculation afterward is pretty nice, too.
Catarina’s word of the week is kitsch, which means, according to Merriam-Webster, “something that appeals to popular or lowbrow taste and is often of poor quality.” She mostly thinks this about her food and toys because she believes she deserves the absolute best—which is true, but we can’t afford the most expensive items.
It’s not that all of my things are kitsch; it’s just that most of them are.
