Glossary


Let me just say that when I post here, I tend to abbreviate. A lot. Well, not always, but when I do it's because the words or titles mentioned are often too long to post here or I just prefer to shorten those longer words/titles and abbreviate them.

Of course, I didn't start most of these phrases or abbreviations, but rather compiled (and also added a few of my own) as I got inspired by other blogs I frequent to and they have their own general use of phrases (or text abbreviations much like when you're texting or sending an instant messages to a friend), which are now commonly used in Pop Culture.

I don't own (even if I came up with something) nor claim to own any of these, so feel free to use any or all of them for your own fun and enjoyment.
