NINA -- No, It's Not Awesome!



AWESOME – the most over-used and over-stated word in the social media.

The Oxford Dictionary definition: extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring awe.

The social media definition: mostly used as a lazy substitute for considered comment on just about anything.

On behalf of my recently-established organisation, NINA (No, It’s Not Awesome), I helpfully offer a random selection of alternative words and phrases:

Very nice
Excellent
Elegant
Most attractive
Most interesting
Clever
Wonderful
Beautiful
Enjoyable
Super
Strewth!
Bloody hell!
Inspiring
Charming 
Intellectually challenging
Classy
You've done well
You’ve done well, considering
Congratulations
Heart warming
Thoughtful
Pretty
Artistic
Are your art classes worth it? 
That wig looks almost real
Superb
Very creative
Much improved
Was it deliberately out of focus?
A good try
Better luck next time
Most impressive
Well, don’t give  up
An improvement on last time
Try another hairdresser!
Was it fancy dress?
You did your best anyway
Was it a good idea to wear tight shorts?
Mmm. A longer skirt would be better
