A term coined in the 70's by writer and former school-teacher John Holt. Used to describe the practice of an individual who does not attend school- instead choosing to travel, write, play, run, build things, volunteer, and learn about the world free of grades, subjects, periods and "school hours".

"where most schooling puts the emphasis on what needs to be learned, unschooling puts the emphasis on who is doing the learning."

A slight hand gesture used to wave for prolonged periods of time (like during a parade)or as a casual non-verbal greeting to friends. With the arm bent at the elbow, the waver turns their wrist back and forth exposing the front and then the back of the hand in a single motion.
I didn't feel like talking so I gave her a quick parade wave as I walked by.

Adjective describing someone who is in a very lazy mood. Does not want to get up from the couch, or does not want to disturb what they are doing.

Also, lack of excitement which can lead to a buddahlike state of bliss.
1) Yeah, so the Steelers are on tv and my dad's all fat on the couch... so I dont think I can get a ride out with you.

One who types really loudly and obnoxiously and seems as if they are beating the keyboard. One who slams their fingers on to each key that you could hear them type from two doors down.
That girl is such a keyboard attacker! she needs to simmer down!
