English just got sooo much cooler with the addition of these words!

It's the day we've all been waiting for! The day when our language is now legit and we can now come out and not be ashamed of saying things like amazeballs, side boob, cray and adorbs.

Why? Because we're officially talking English now!

Oxford Online dictionary this week included words like  amazeballs, binge-watch,  cray, douchebaggery, FML, hot mess, n, side boob, side-eye, and YOLO  to their official English words list.

We're so happy by the decision, we're positively crying from happiness.

If only we could now get Jelly and Totes added to the list!

Here's the full list of new English words released by Oxford Dictionaries.
