Hey everyone out there,

How are you doing today?

Welcome back to yet another chapter of our “Free 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” where you’ll learn some new vocabulary every day with context and examples, and so will you today.

So without further ado, let’s see today’s context and pick some vocabulary out of it.

Read carefully…


I was just thinking how busy my schedule has become these days.

I mean writing an article daily can be a little bit nerve-racking sometimes. Don’t you think so?

First and foremost, you have to think about a new topic every day, and then decide on the vocabulary to include. You have to then think about a context where you can fit in all the vocabulary and write a new piece of context every day that serves the purpose of explanation.

So you see, it’s definitely not a piece of cake managing all this with your daily chores, but frankly speaking, I would do anything for you. Your love and support have always boosted me to live up to your expectations and trust me, you will never be disappointed.

Now I can’t say I will be there 24/7, writing articles daily or commenting back, but I can guarantee you for sure you will keep having articles like this, either by me or Robby.

Moreover, please don’t think that I am telling you all this to boast about how much work I put in regularly.

I also respect your time and care about all my dear readers who actively participated in this free course and I am pretty sure you must have seen your vocabulary improving with flying colors day in and out.

Am I right Joe?

Or whatever your name is.

I am sure you also have other things to do, so before you get busy with some other work, let’s see the vocabulary from the context.
