Over Excited Young Adults 

As a young person, this is going to sound very snobbish, but I couldn’t possibly care less.

This post is also going to be very very short. One sentence in fact, following this one. 

I don’t care if you’re 18 or 80; use a dictionary when you decide to use a “big” word.

Ok. I can’t sum up my feelings about this with one simple sentence. 

Recently, I saw something a college student had written which read as such : 

“As you know, students don’t have the most ravish budget.” 

Do you see anything wrong with that sentence? 

Let’s delve into what the word “ravish” means. 

And I quote: ravish- “to force someone to have sex against their will,” or “to hold spellbound.” 

Can either of these definitions be applied to a students budget? 

No no no no no 

I believe what this person meant to say was lavish- “sumptuously rich, elaborate, or luxurious.” 

USE A DICTIONARY PEOPLE. 

Don’t pretend to be something you’re not and use big professional words you don’t know the meaning of. You’ll just come off sounding ignornant and or stupid. 

Much Love and Annoyance,
