It's back again....WOW!

When I was writing this blog more regularly, my Friday's were dedicated for WOW (Word of the Week). Finding a word, defining it, and applying it to what's going on in my life and work. Well, it's back again, although I'll be alternating between Friday and Saturdays when I post the new one.

In case you've not seen WOW before, I generally take it from the marquee of the elementary school I work at. Except during the summer...for obvious reasons.

So without further ado, the WOW for this week is...Acute.

Acute: adj.
- Having a sharp tip or point.
- Keenly perceptive of discerning.
- Reacting readily to stimuli: sensitive.
- Of great importance or consequence.
- Extremely sharp or severe; intense.

It never ceases to amaze me how the WOW posted applies to my life in some specific way. For the word acute, it's the part of the definition that states - Extremely sharp or severe; intense.

If you read Monday's post, you have a taste of what I'm talking about.

It's been, personally, an acutely frustrating week (which has ended with me losing my voice). I'm dealing with not only personal stuff, but the knowledge that I had two magazine manuscripts rejected about a week ago, I'm back at work at my day job, and I've been sick...again...for the third time in one and a half months. I'm never this sick...

However, the great thing about WOW is there's a new one next week and that means a better week is just a word away.

Have a great weekend. :)
