Can I Have A Mental Breakdown Yet?
April 25th, 2002 - 4:57 a.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
Hmm. I've been in a very strange mood lately. I wonder how long it would last if I imposed self-isolation on myself? What if I decided that I didn't want to talk to anyone until I got things done? I'm betting that resolution wouldn't last very long. But then again, I don't have any willpower apparently. Which sucks, but that's just too bad. Bah. What a depressing subject. Let's move on. Oh wait, I don't have anything to move on *to* really. Pfft. Gee, guess that means my life sucks. Oh...but I already knew that.
I swear, this computer is evil. Or maybe it's just the internet. It's probably actually both of them collaborating together against me. I have so many things that I really don't want to do. Maybe my room is driving me crazy. Heck, maybe I don't need anything other than me to drive me crazy. A likely possibility. I've felt very strange lately. Let's hope this isn't a trend. Or if it is that I don't snap until about a year from now. I can probably have a mental breakdown after I graduate. Probably. And can I just say that that sounds really strange? I have a year left. And then I have to face the world. Or continue to hide from it. I have to think about things for the future. Blech. I really would rather not. Oh well.
truckle (v. TRUH-kul)
: to act in a subservient manner : submit
When truckle was first used in English in the 15th century, it meant small wheel or pulley. Such small wheels were often attached to the underside of low beds, to allow them to be pushed under high beds for storage. These beds came to be known as truckle beds (or trundle beds), and a verb truckle -- meaning to sleep in a truckle bed -- came into being. By the 17th century, truckle had also come to mean to yield to the wishes of another or to bend obsequiously. The initial verb meaning became obsolete; the newer sense is rare but still in use.
audacious (adj. aw-DAY-shuss)
1 a : intrepidly daring : adventurous b : recklessly bold : rash
2 : contemptuous of law, religion, or decorum : insolent
3 : marked by originality and verve
Shakespeare used audacious seven times in his plays. That in itself wasn't exactly an act of bold originality. The word, which comes from the Latin root audac- (bold), had been around for decades. But the Bard was the first to use audacious in its contemptuous, insolent sense ("Obey, audacious traitor; kneel for grace," _Henry VI Part 2_), and he may have been the first to use the adverb audaciously. Audacious itself was something of an innovation in the 16th century: it was one of the earliest -acious words in English. Subsequently, we've added lots of -acious adjectives to our lexicon, including pugnacious, loquacious, voracious, and even, in the 20th century, bodacious (most likely a combination of bold and audacious).
