From al desko to Zika, new dictionary words define life in 2016

New words unveiled on Dictionary.com on Tuesday spun life's tedium into trendy terms such as athleisure, a new fashion category once known simply as wearing yoga pants all day, and al desko, or eating lunch in your office cubicle. The 300 newly added words on Dictionary.com, an online site that also updated 1,700 entries, are plucked from a variety of sources, including news headlines, cultural conversations and everyday slang. The phenomenal success of mobile phone game Pokemon GO put Pokemon on the list. Popular dating apps such as Tinder helped add ghosting, the practice of suddenly ending all contact with a would-be date without any explanation. Breaking news stories about terror attacks tied to Islamic State sparked the inclusion of Daesh - an Arabic acronym that comes from the first letters in the militant group's …

Grown App wishlist

By Isabelle Laureta Mobile applications have, whether we notice it or not, made a huge impact on our daily lives. Since the rise of evolutionary smartphones, developers have been coming up with applications that may help, entertain, connect us with other people, give us instant flower crowns or turn us into dogs, and ultimately control our usage of these handheld devices. With the help of these apps, our cellphones have become the best friend we’ve never had, because now, they practically have anything, can be anything. Just recently, another groundbreaking smartphone gaming app was released—Pokémon GO. It enables players to be a Pokémon master and basically live their childhood dreams in an augmented reality. This got me thinking: Is there literally anything mobile applications cannot do? If developers were able to turn …

Stand up

Feeling like the odd one out in your school because you’re being called “feelingera” or “’di naman kagandahan?” The words of a bully can get into your innermost core and shatter you from the inside out, but you don’t have to let them. Here are different ways of standing up for yourself and letting them know that you’re not someone they should mess with. Don’t act weak The more you show them that you are affected by their words, the more they feel that they have power over you. This is exactly what they want so that they can laugh at you even more. Look confident in front of them, even if you aren’t. Fake it ’til you make it. Hold your head high and keep on walking.   Love yourself Tell yourself that what …

Enough with YOLO-fails [because you can live it up]

You only live once. How many times have we used and abused the Internet-famous truncated form of this age-old adage—with or without the hashtag—which reminds us, quite literally, that we only have one life to live so we owe it upon ourselves to live it the best way possible? Your cousins dared you to go diving off a 100-foot-cliff in Boracay. YOLO. A friend is throwing the party of the year at his parent’s penthouse suite in BGC (you live in Tandang Sora) but you have exams the next day? YOLO. Your blog is getting very high-traffic and you get one pay-per-click ad contract so you decide to quit school to grow your blog and blogging revenue. Yup. YOLO. There are more cringe-worthy downright idiotic examples of extreme, reckless YOLO-ing that involved tattoo-fails, fire hazards, and getting naked in public but we’ll leave those to Buzzfeed. Thing is, YOLO has quickly evolved …

The tables have turned

By Isabella Laureta Type in “Millennials” or “20somethings” on Google and you’ll find dozens of articles like “Things all ‘20somethings should realize,’” or “Things I wish I knew when I was 20.” I get the rationale of these write-ups and I appreciate them. When you’re in your 20s, you need all the help you can get from people who have “been there,” right? They cater to a generation who are basically amateurs at this thing we call life, but does it really mean we know almost nothing about it? Contrary to popular belief (mostly by generations older than us), 20somethings aren’t always these naive little creatures who have to be nursed and pacified all the time. Newsflash (and with all due respect), we also know things that we wish “real adults” would realize (aside …
