Definition: Clandestine (pronounced clan·des·tine); Latin; adjective
1. Characterized by, done in, or executed with secrecy or concealment.
Why I love this word:
Clandestine is a word meaning something is done in secret or secretly. In a world where we post everything about our lives on public social media platforms, nothing seems to be clandestine anymore. I for one believe there is something beautiful about being shrouded in mystery, and a gracious individual should always have an air of mystery around them. Mystery entices people in and has them craving to know more. If everything is public then where is the fun in discovery? So leave some actions to be clandestine and make people want to uncover the mystery.
