Can’t blog now, writing essays…

Nathan Campbell —  May 31, 2010

I will no doubt be caught up in moments of procrastination in the next two days… but it’s study week, and before I study for my exams I need to finish an essay.

I am intending to include the words milieu, and hegemony, in every essay I write this year. From this point on. Just because I like them.

Got any more words to throw into the pile?

  1. eclectic (suggesting eclectic on this blog is like taking coal to Newcastle)

  2. …not that i won’t get in trouble for posting

  3. I just *love* to overuse ‘full-orbed’ :D

  4. The word “copious” is a good one to chuck in sentences to sound smart.

  5. When I was in junior high I loved to overuse “myriad” and “sundry” because I felt cool and pretentious. My super-favorite words, though, are those with double z’s: pizazz, dazzle and razzmatazz. My regular-favorite words are the ones like riffraff, bamboozle, hoodwink, hullabaloo, brouhaha, kerfuffle and skedaddle.

  6. That’s funny, because milieu and hegemony are the two words that come to mind when reading your blog. I’m not sure why.

    By the way, if you want to impress people, try working in the word syzygy every now and then.
