Trying to get the lingo down.

Hello everyone! I'm new to the board, and I'm getting a little thrown off by the lingo/acronyms. I've looked around for a guide of sorts to find out what they mean, but I haven't found any posts. If I could get a brief explanation of the more popular ones on this board, I would really appreciate it!

Thank you!!

    Hi! I know what you mean about the acronyms, I also recently joined and find myself googling frequently but hopefully this post will help!
    Sent from my iPad - any unusual words or misspellings are due to an autocorrect incident that I may have missed.

    I'm 22. Our one year anniversary is this Saturday. We're celebrating by going to see The Muppets! My name is Nychole, so I shortened it to Nyc. (:

    I'm in cosmetology school. I don't have any babies or furbabies. We're thinking about getting a dog soon, but we haven't found any that we feel like would suit our personalities.

    I love potatos, mostly fries. I LOVE cheese. I have never had wine. I like sushi, but I'm pretty new to it. I've only tried a couple. I'm an obsessed fan of Harry Potter. I've read all the books multiple times. I watch the movies. I even played on the official Harry Potter site for years. Haha.
