If you recall, a little while ago I mentioned in a post how one of my professors challenged my class to actively pursue learning more words on a daily basis. Since then, my roommates and I have had 27 different words of the day – not quite one per day, but close. I’m glad we’re being amenable in this case; so far, it’s been fun. If you’re looking for something new to spice up your daily existence a bit, I suggest trying a similar experiment yourself – maybe even start with a word of the week, like these two bloggers?
