10 words people need to stop using.

Some of my 100% agreed upon STOP using this:
Ummm are people even STILL using this first one? For real?

~Kaw

Legit

Legit

Example: “I am legit so annoyed right now.” “Legit” is pretty much becoming the new “literally” it seems, and it’s not an improvement at all. Please, just cut it out of your sentences; there will be no change in meaning without it.

Swag

Swag

Example: “Brah, that shirt is so swag.” I’m really not sure how swag ended up being a thing. I feel like it might have been one of those words that started out being used ironically and then people just started saying it without thinking. Soon enough it spiraled out of control and became a fixture in our popular vernacular. No matter how it was born, though, swag needs to die. Its only use now should be as a litmus test: if someone says this, run away fast.

 

YOLO

YOLO

Example: “Let’s go jump off a bridge! YOLO!” I’m sure Drake had no idea of the phenomenon he created when he unleashed this acronym on us. YOLO should be taken as a warning to make the most of your time, but the people who say it are probably using it to justify acts that will shorten their lives.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
