They can come from a podcast you like, a book that you like, or TV series, etc. If you type in notes fields the original sentence were you first seen the word, it will be easier to you to remember the emotion of the scene, the context where it was used and so on. Making it much easier to remember and incorporate it into your own vocabulary.
