YOUTH QUAKE

I wish you all very happy new year guys . I know am very fast to wish you all guys *kindly notice the sarcasm* 😛

Today I want to discuss the word of the year 2017 which was given by the oxford dictionary is ” YOUTHQUAKE“. By hearing the word we can easily predict the meaning,  the word youth usually means the current generation and the other word quake means shaking.

The official definition of the word YOUTHQUAKE given by the oxford dictionary is ‘a significant cultural, political, or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people’.

Now let us discussed the why the word has been chosen?

  • Usage of the term in the UK increased five-fold in 2017 over 2016, including a huge spike in the second half of the year
  • The word first built momentum in the wake of the British polls in June when young voters almost carried the Labour Party to an unlikely victory, the dictionary said
  • Then it began to gain usage in New Zealand in the run-up to the parliamentary elections in September, in which the Labour party aimed to appeal to younger voters and succeeded in gaining seats and forming a new minority government, it said
  • Australians acknowledged the word in referencing it during their November referendum on marriage equality, which resulted in a YOUTHQUAKE of support
  • YOUTHQUAKE originated in a very specific context, coined by Diana Vreeland, the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, when British youth culture was changing the face of fashion and music in the 1960s, according to the blog post

Five decades later YOUTHQUAKE has been resurrected with a new meaning, now referring to the political awakening of the oft-maligned millennial generation.

OTHER WORDS IN THE RACE WERE

Other words in contention for this year’s word of the year included ‘antifa’ – a short word for “anti-fascist”, and ‘broflake’ meaning a man who is readily upset or offended by progressive attitudes that conflict with his more conservative views.

‘Kompromat’ – the Russian term for compromising information collected for use in blackmailing, ‘unicorn’ – adding rainbow colours to things, especially food and ‘Milkshake duck’ – a person or character on social media that appears to be endearing at first, but is found to have an unappealing back story — were also considered.

benefits of being a teenager!

as am being a teenager,

i want to discuss about the benefits of being “TEEN”

Where do I even begin with such a touchy subject like this? Well, I’m not going to go into excruciating detail because we all know what it was, or is like.

  1. The teenage “perks.” I’ve heard quite a few times that once you’re out of high school, your schedule goes through a huge change and you suddenly become very busy. Your mind is no longer in that careless and carefree state , but rather with mountains of papers, tuition, and career choices.

  2. We’ve all heard our older relatives say that “teen years are the best times of your life.” And maybe they are right?  But from personal experience, being a teenager has definitely had its upsides downs.

    I have gone through the worst, in order to learn the best, and I have made my fair share of mistakes. But without those mistakes, I wouldn’t have learned about myself, learn the difference between what’s right and what’s wrong, and so much more. Through the teenage years, you learn to be your own person, whether or not you have to go through the fire.

  3. Maturity. the best of part of our life is when maturity take place. we’ll get to know how to deal with life and we’ll also know about the meaning of life.we will although miss our childish days, but we have to be the change !

  4. Freedom. For teens, freedom is issue. they crave it, and they need it. it helps teens feel more powerful and self confident.

    This is not end of my post. I ll keep updating if i come across any incident in my life. so keep enjoying being a teen.It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.

Who am I

Hey guys, 🙂
This a big intro of mine!
I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like to read, I like to write; I like to think, I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen. I like to see the sunrise in the morning, I like to see the moonlight at night; I like to feel the music flowing on my face, I like to smell the wind coming from the ocean. I like to look at the clouds in the sky with a blank mind, I like to do thought experiment when I cannot sleep in the middle of the night. I like flowers in spring, rain in summer, leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. I like to sleep late, I like to get up late; I like to be alone, I like to be surrounded by people.  I like delicious food and comfortable shoes; I like good books . I like the land and the nature, I like people, I like to laugh and finally I am weirdest of alll 😀
Huh?
There is hell lot about meeeeee
