One of the things I’m working on during the pandemic is improving my vocabulary. I find when I’m trying to communicate to a group I’m not as articulate as I’d like to be because I’m constantly overthinking my word choices and worrying that they’re too boring or ineffective. Writing on a computer is another thing entirely because of course I always have a thesaurus open in another tab.

As I’m reading the New Yorker I’m writing down the words I don’t know, or couldn’t quickly define if someone had a gun to my head. After reading their definitions I try to put them in my own words because apparently that trick helps you absorb information. I dunno.

Is anyone else out there on a vocabulary-improving journey?
