This post was meant for yesterday, but since I took the day off here we are today. Most of these words come from Merriam-Webster, Dictionary.com, and WordThink’s words of the week but I will also be adding a few choices of my own.

So without further ado, let’s learn some new words✨

Ineffable- Too great to be expressed in words

Oblivion- The state of being unaware or unconscious of what is happening around you; forgetting or being completely forgotten (I’m sure we all know this word but I just like it lol so it made the list)

Now we’ve learned words and basic math☺️
