Wordle is a daily occurrence for me now.

Shout out to New York Times for the best word game ever.

Shout out to New York Times for the best word game ever.

It all started when I was scrolling through TikTok one day and came across this activity that caught my eye right away. By the one and only New York Times itself,


or as its formal name, Wordle. This link is now its own icon on my computer. I now have a reminder in my phone set for everyday at 10:30 A.M. so I can remember to play. It’s an addiction, but not a bad one.


If you don’t know what Worldle is, first of all, I’m sorry, you have truly missed out. But don’t fret, now you can set your alarm for it just like me. Wordle is a five-letter word game. You type in a word and see if you got the answer right. If you get the letter itself right, it turns yellow. If you got the right letter in the right spot, it turns green. If you are anything like me, you will pick a word you always start off with. For example, earth, start, place, space, etc. any five letter word that may or may not be the lucky word. Watching those words flip and the adrenaline rushing through waiting to see if you got it or not is a different type of feeling.


Plus, it only takes a solid ten minutes unless you are severely dedicated and don’t guess like I do. I have to be completely honest, I have only gotten about a third of the words I’ve done correct. Which I have no shame in, after I see the word it was, the pieces come together. It is a brain exercise to be honest. The best one. And it’s free.


So if you are ever incredibly bored or honestly just want to try it out, please do. Get addicted. It’s a good addiction. By the way, if you were wondering, I did not get today’s word right. Was pretty close though.
