Hello my friends. I hope you are having a lovely Saturday so far. Today, I’m going to be giving you a sneak peak into my life as a logophile. If you haven’t already Googled it, a logophile is someone who has a love of words. Not your everyday word such as “pizza” (which is still good by the way) but words such as…..
Irrupt; to rush in forcible or violently
Lorn; lost, ruined, or undone
Eldritch; eerier; weird, spooky
Gerful; wild and wayward
Tristful; deeply, yet romantically melancholy
Cockalorum; a small man with a big opinion of himself
Hobbledehoy; an awkward teenager
Aren’t those last two hilarious?
It’s fascinating to me to find a word that sums you up perfectly. Just the other day I found the word thalassophile. which means a lover of the sea. And you know what? That is me, I am a thalssophile. You can also use these unique words to make an impressive profile.
Previously, I had been saving words to a Pinterest board, but that wasn’t enough. I wanted to do something with these words besides save them to a board I will rarely log into to look account. I had to do something special, down to the very pen I used. Recently, I was gifted with a fountain pen by my lovely cousin.
(for those of you who saw my post on social media that it was my aunt, it was really my cousin– there was a miscommunication.)
I’d been wanting a Ravenclaw journal for a long time, so I used this as an excuse to finally buy one. 🙂
Now, you can’t write in a Ravenclaw journal with just any ink, you need blue. So, I bought that, too. 😉
GATHERING MY WEAPONS
(The pen is mightier than the sword)
First, I open my word board on Pinterest or someone else’s on Pinterest.
I choose ones that stand out to me, regards of whether I love them or not. Then I copy them into my journal. I love the way my fountain pen writes, and how it looks on paper. I take my time to make my writing as neat as possible, and I love the connection I feel with the pen, ink, and the words that pour out of them.
