So. If you know me in real life you know that I’m a big facebook user. If you don’t, you should probably LIKE The Sole Search Page and follow along, just to stay up to date on all the cool things I post. Most recently, I have begun following a page called WORD PORN. It posts a strange word and it’s definition. Most of the time the words ring true in same into my life. I often have to hold myself back from reposting it for fear of losing ‘friends’. The other day I reposted this:
Vorfreude. Now, spell check is telling me that it doesn’t exist. I’m going to ignore that little red line and say that this word has been, unknowingly, a big influence in my life. In order to ‘get through’ the hard stuff I have seemed to have a vorfreude that I can fall back on. Whether it be an up coming trip, a race I’m training for, a friend visiting… etc. Right now I’ve lost it. Where did my vorfreude go!? Some one find my vorfreude!!!!
I now live somewhere, I have a stable job that I plan to hang out at for a while. While I may live in a living room (we’re working on that,) I’m in a pretty stable environment. Which is weird, and scary–but also kinda exciting I guess. Just weird. Let’s just stick with weird for now.
Anyway, I thought I would share this wonderful word with you in hopes that I find a vorfreude (I’m probably not using this glorious word correctly…) In other words I need to figure out something in the near future to keep me motivated for the current. Any ideas welcome!
