The Vocabulary Blog

Hey guys - Sorry to get off topic for a second here, but I just started a Patron! Patron is where you can donate to content creators you support monthly (as little as 1$!) and get access to exclusive content while helping them out! I’m going to be moving into college dorms in a few weeks and money is super tight, so if you enjoy any of what I do, PLEASE consider supporting me. (Seriously, even 1$ would make a huge difference from enough of the folks who follow me.)

Thank you! And now, back to your regularly scheduled blog.
