Random things that make me cry

I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been in a mood called “feel like crying.” At the finale of a tv series at coming home from my brother’s soccer game that he won at a graphic novel at a song at waking up at thinking about this summer, this August, the prospect of my siblings’Continue reading “Random things that make me cry”

Words whose sounds fit their definitions

You all know what onomatopoeia is? This article was inspired by that. Just like the word “BOOM” sounds like a firework going off, here are words that, in my opinion, sound like their definitions.
