Fine is on par with average or boring

It’s equivalent to settling for less or treating the mundane as ideal. There’s nothing wrong with the ordinary, mind you, but it shouldn’t be a goal. Normalcy isn’t admirable. (At least settling for the same-old safe thing is just an excuse for not trying to grow.)

Vernacular, which is no new term in contemporary discourse , means language

In fact, the Indian press has its roots in vernacular newspapers which run till day to cater to the majority of the grassroots population which is mainly Hindi speaking. Hence, it can be established that local dilaect holds umpteen importance for any campaign or cause in the country. And when one talks about campaigns and cause, the rapid emergence and impact of internet, digital platforms cannot be avoided.

Beliefs are generalizations, feelings of certainty on the basis of events or references that we perceive & accept as true

You might believe something based on some past references, facts, opinions or assumptions. Our beliefs are driven by our generalizations about what we have learned could lead us to pain & pleasure. Our belief system is not necessarily correct. Interestingly, we are driven by our beliefs.

My therapist (man, you know you’ve lost any fucks to give when you start a blog post with those two words) has a pretty interesting policy. Actually, as far as I know it’s the same for any NHS mental health services across the UK. The policy is as follows – although I’m paraphrasing:

If you don’t turn up to an appointment without calling ahead first, you’re immediately discharged from the service. If you cancel two appointments without giving at least 24 hours of notice, you’re also discharged from the service.

Do you consider flirting cheating?

Such a tricky little word. No, if we are going with the Merriam-Webster definition, but this is life and definitions take on a whole new meaning. Let me explain.

You know, the innocent batting of the eye lashes to get a large french fries instead of the small you ordered, or the coy wink for an extra spray of whip cream on your caramel frappe.

Sometimes when I talk on Twitter (or even this blog!) I get questions about the abbreviations I use, so I thought I’d make this list to help newbie bloggers & book community members get acquainted with some of the terminology!

Also, if you think I’m missing anything let me know! I’d love to add it on so this list is more comprehensive.

NOTE: When talking in the book community, sometimes people use intentionally vague abbreviations (i.e. MM could be Marissa Meyer or Maura…
