My Very Own Deetionary.

Disclaimer: This page will be updated soon

Hey,
girly_m
So I designed my blog in such a way that when people read, they feel as though I am there with them spilling out gist dairy style. You know the same way you would recount daily happenings of your life in your own dairy, complete with abbreviations, slangs and cliches, that’s what I do. However, from time to time, I get responses from people.

“Dee, I love your blog, but I didn’t understand so and so word you used in so and so place”

The thing is when I put my mind to it like really put my mind to it, I can be very exuberant, down to earth and expressive. Obviously, I REALLY REALLY put my mind to it when I write hence, the obvious. So, in order to bridge this communication gap, I came up with a way to make you understand my kinda language.

I created my very own Deetionary.

Yipee!!!
The meaning of most of these words are easily inferred based on the context but just in case though.

Here we go…
