So I just found out that the word 'strenuating' is not, in fact, a word.
Not only have I used this word throughout my college career, but I have come to adore it.
Please someone prove that it's a real word! Because right now I am feeling like a little girl who was just told that Santa Claus is not real. Boo.
A Google search reveals that the word makes a small appearance in Urban Dictionary. FML.
