This is exactly my problem right now. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR!
and just because I said that I was going to “define” my angst (well, I didn’t say that–I said that the above article had defined it for me . . . but I’m trying to be funny. not so much, huh?) ANYWAY, here’s the dictionary definition . . . and now I’m even MORE “angst-ridden” because this just isn’t quite the right word. Philosophical anxiety, perhaps, but not about the world, or about personal freedom. But then I’m left with “bored”/”restless”/”dissatisfied” and I end up sounding super-whiny. sigh . . .
n : an acute but unspecific feeling of anxiety; usually reserved for philosophical anxiety about the world or about personal freedom
