A harvest cornucopia of autumnal locution.

7 Autumnal Words to Add to Your Vocabulary

It finally feels like that time of year. It's cold, it's dreary and it is the perfect opportunity to curl up with your laptop or dictionary and some tea to learn some "unbe-leaf-abe" fall themed words (sorry).

1. Autumnal "of, characteristic of, or occurring in autumn"

Yes, this one is kind of a no brainer, but let's just use it more. It's just so fun to say.

2. Psychrophilic "thriving at a relatively low temperature"

Normally this word is used for certain types of bacteria but I encourage you to use it a little more loosely. One can never use to many multi-syllabic words.

3. Brumous "foggy, of grey skies"

You know when you wake up for your 7 a.m. and your looking for the right word to describe the gross cold grey autumnal morning? Here you go. Brumous has just the right sounds to convey your angst.

4. Psithurism "The sound of wind in the trees and rustling of leaves"

For those moments when your terrible "whoosh whoosh" sound effects don't cut it.

5. Feuillemort "having the color of a faded leaf"

Because "dead leaf color" sounds so much better in French...

6. Nemophilist "One who is fond of forests or forest scenery; a haunter of the woods."

I'll be honest. This sounds a little bit like necrophilia. Whatever.

7. Peiskos (Norwegian) "the feelings one gets as they sit in front of a fire enjoying it's warmth"

Is this language appropriation? Yes. Am encouraging you to do it anyway? Yes.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
