17 Of The Best Tweets Ever About Being Messy AF

One of my very favorite things about being alive in the year of our lord 2016 is being able to see how certain words have taken on entirely new meanings. Of course, this could be said about any year, since slang has always existed–when “bee’s knees” became a way of referring to someone’s positive attributes as opposed to, you know, the literal knees of a bee, I am sure that it rattled all the good people of 1924–but, while I could be biased, I really feel that 2016 slang is the best. “Curve” does not mean a slightly wavering line anymore, for example. It means the act of rejecting someone, in the politest way possible, usually by text message. “Lurk” does not just mean lingering in an IRL location–rather, it refers to dwelling on someone’s social media page and finding out information you definitely didn’t want.

Obviously, these words are not so different from what they meant before, but that’s not the point. Slang has evolved to be a pure means of convenience, rather than opacity, so one could use a variety of context clues to figure them out. Anyway, one of my favorite new terms is, of course, “messy.” Messy sill means what it did before –untidy or dirty and/or confused and difficult to deal with–but it also refers to an entire state of being.
