So maybe I should have done this earlier, but I have a few warnings for everyone about my blog.
So I realize I have a little bit of college under my belt, but I haven't taken an English class since high school and I really didn't pay as much attention to the grammar and punctuation portion as I should have, so sometimes those things are not quite up to par. . . .mainly because I'm trying to get my blog done before my breaks over, so I don't double check! I'm also not a perfectionist, so sometimes I really don't care. Unless I know your most likely judging me and wondering why I have the writing skills of a 6th grader, then it worries me! I don't want you to think, I think I'm stupid, but sometimes I'm not as wise as a girl my age should be.
I also tend to not use or spell words correctly, for example. . . . . . . .
One semester at BYUI I had a roommate that used the word approximately a lot. One night we where discussing it, and I found out I'd been using it incorrectly. I was sure approximate meant exactly, so to save my pride I asked as many people as I could what they thought the definition of approximately was. . . . .everyone knew. . . but me!
Then there's the times that Angie and Lynette catch me on things like Lady Marmalade. I was saying marmalide (with an I sound) I guess that "a" at the end wasn't enough of a clue. Then yesterday Angie was kind enough to inform me that "Hopeycock" is not a word, but Poppycock is! Also in my text messages I was always having to spell out awkward and I was so mad because I was like was isn't this word in there!!!! It would have helped if I didn't spell it a-c-k-w-a-r-d!
These are just a few examples, I don't even wanna start on my there's and where's, or my need to capitalize everything or random commas where they don't belong. I'm not sure why I am the way I am, I mean I still have to really think about which way is left and which is right. . . . .I'm 24 years old and I'm considering getting a big R and L tattooed on my hands to signify which is which. It's pretty obvious I have issues, but hey at least I can tie my own shoes!
So I guess to sum things up, I'm aware of the mistakes I make, and I really hope it doesn't make you think less of me. Maybe someday I'll get these lazy bones in gear, but for now I wanna say thank you for not terrorizing me too much.
Happy Three Day Weekend!!!
