Hi, it’s Joel. In this video, I’m going to talk about the word “hectic.”
So, what does “hectic” mean? Basically, “hectic” means that you’re very busy, you’re in a hurry.
Meaning that you have to do things very quickly and you’re probably a bit stressed.
And in some cases, there may even be some confusion because of all of these activities
and all these things that you have to do.
So, a couple common examples that we can use with “hectic” would be with our day, our day at work.
So, let’s say that you come home at night and you say,
“Oh, I had a hectic day. Today was so hectic.” That means that at work you had lots of tasks to do.
Lots of things to do and you were very busy you had to work very quickly.
You were a little bit stressed and it was not very relaxing, for sure.
So, you had a hectic day at work, lots of things to do, you had to work very fast;
