Nate’s most recent post is must-read–and I speak only one language. It will resonate with anyone who learned as an adult to speak a new language.
Thanks to Anu Garg’s A.Word.A.Day (AWAD) newsletter I learned a term my fellow procrastinators — and legions of current college seniors — will embrace: perendinate. It means “to put off until the day after tomorrow” (Garg quotes Mark Twain: “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow”) or, a definition that will resonate with many, “to stay at a college for an extended time.” Isn’t that just great? You aren’t ducking from the horrible economy or refusing to grow up; you are perendinating!
