22 (New) Words Every 20-Something Needs to Start Using

You know that frustrating feeling you get when you are trying to think of the word for something, but you can’t think of it or come up with one? Sometimes words just slip our minds, but other times it’s frustrating because we are trying to describe something, but the words we’re using aren’t exactly what we’re going for.
Yet there are many scenarios, types of people, and feelings that most millennials can relate to– that feeling of shame when Netflix asks you if you want to “continue watching,” the person in class who always has a question and has to challenge the teacher at every opportunity, knowing it’s rude to text at dinner but telling yourself it’s okay because everyone else is too. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had words to actually term these types of things?
Introducing 22 new words every twenty-something needs to start incorporating into their conversations. Although these words aren’t officially recognized by Webster (yet), they definitely need to be. They perfectly describe, most using a pun or play on words, so many of the feelings and experiences we have during our college years.
