ALPHABET GAME "Y"

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back, everyone!

Including today's lesson, there are just two more days of the 2019 Alphabet Game. We are sad to see this contest come to an end, but we are excited to announce the winners very soon. 

Here’s today’s challenge; remember...the word starts with the letter Y.

This is a slang word that shows affirmation. It's a word that younger generations use. 

Person A: Let's drink champagne and eat pancakes today.
Person B: Y_______! Great idea.


Leave us your answer on one of our social media sites (Facebook or Twitter) and we will post the correct answer later. We will also include the correct answer in tomorrow's Daily Vitamin email.

We'll see you tomorrow for the last challenge of the 2019 Alphabet Game!

Good luck!

MILLENNIAL SLANG (YASS)

Welcome back, readers! Happy Friday to you. 

Today is our last day of "Millennial" Slang. Did you learn some new words this week? Now we can all talk like millennials. ;-)

Our last word of the week is: YASS

Example 1: You got a new job? YASS!!!

Example 2: I'm going on a date on Friday and he suggested my favourite restaurant. YASS!

This is the perfect word to use today, because... it's Friday. YASS!

Have a great weekend.

MILLENNIAL SLANG (WOKE)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Thursday, Daily Vitamin readers! I hope you're having a nice week and that you are enjoying our "Millennial" Slang theme.

Today’s word is: WOKE

Definition: An adjective to describe someone who is aware of the racial and social issues in their community or the world. (In non-slang English, "woke" is the past-tense form of the verb "wake".)

Typically, one does not refer to themselves as "WOKE." (It's strange to announce that you are socially aware because it sounds pretentious.) This is a word that is normally used to describe other people. It has origins in African-American slang. 

Example 1: At the end of his speech, the activist urged us to "Stay woke."

Example 2: My uncle is a professor of Sociology and he studies racial inequality. He's pretty woke

That's all for today. Have a great day!
