Verb

CODDIWOMPLE

[kod-ee-wom-pul]

v. to travel in a determined manner towards a vague destination

Travelling is the best way to experience the world and its diversity. You get to meet people of different cultures and try new cuisines. It does not matter where you go, as long as you go with an open mind and heart. Dare to try things you haven’t yet and live each moment to the fullest!

EFFLORESCE

[ef-luhres]

v. to burst into bloom

Spring is officially here! With spring comes: showers of pattering rain, adorable rain-boots, enchanting rainbows, blooming flowers, and the return of warm weather (at least in the northern hemisphere). It’s time to once again relish being outdoors!

VILIPEND

[viluh-pend]

v. to regard or treat as if of little value or account

Everything has a significant value in someone’s eyes, whether they value the thing in question with emotional and/or monetary value. Nothing is valueless. Everything and everyone counts.

TEMERATE

[temh-er-ate]

v. to break a bond or binding promise

Promises are more than just a verbal vow. They bind two individuals on the basis of their words. A promise is an assurance built on trust. When someone breaks this special bond, others loose their ability to trust them. Breaking a promise is like letting go of the invisible threads that connect you to another individual.

IDEATE

[ay-dee-eyt]

v. to form an idea

Ideas come from the most bizarre thoughts and at the oddest of times. Although these ideas can be a bit strange, they allow one to express themselves and make themselves understood. They can be the beginning of something special.

NICTITATE

[nick-tih-teyt]

v. to shut an eye briefly

It seems as if every time I blink, something new is happening and I have missed something important. It is like missing that one day of school or work when everything happens and you are the only one to miss it. Nowadays, you go to sleep and you wake up in the morning to discover that the world has changed in some unusual way, except, you are not the only one to be effected anymore.

CATHECT

[kath-uct]

v. to invest emotion or feeling in a particular idea, object, or another person

To invest emotion or feeling in something can be easy or difficult, however, it is always hard to lose that something. When we fall in love with something or someone it is like a piece of us is invested in it or them. We feel emotionally attached. One can have a tough time letting go or losing that piece of themselves that is invested in something else. 

DEGUST

[day-guh-st]

v. to taste something carefully in order to appreciate it fully


Enjoy the taste of food because not everyone is fortunate enough to have the same opportunities. Food is a necessity, yet not everyone can afford it. Donate to the food bank and support those who are not as fortunate as you. As human beings, we should care for each other.

ENRAPTURE
