Confession – I had to type misspell to see if I spelled it correctly. It looked weird, ok. Another confession, I’m a TOTAL word nerd. No really, I love words, their origin, meaning, structure, etc. I love words so much that sometimes I go overboard when I’m questioned about the meaning of a word. I’ve been known to do a crazy sumo wrestler fighter stance as a told you so victory dance because I “knew” the definition of a word. I didn’t really know the full definition, just have a feeling. I know it’s weird and crazy and somewhat ludicrous that a person would even use a Sumo wrestler stance as a victory dance. Which is why I think it’s weird I have such a disregard for spelling. I’m a terrible speller and rely entirely too much on spell check. And I by no means have an extensive vocabulary. It would be safe to say that more often than not I recite “I before E except after C” or dessert is double s, as in strawberry shortcake many times throughout the day. Don’t judge. Among these are words that I refuse to get right.
professional – this word dates back to my college days when I had to fill out an application for student teaching placement. I apparently overused the word and misspelled it while I was at it. I don’t know if I added two f’s or just one s, but it was wrong. Now I constantly question it when I type.
Stationary – The paper kind. I really want to use an e. I don’t know why. Why do there have to be two words? It hardly seems fair for someone who loves paper as much as I do. As I type this I’m questioning if I even used the right word. Is it e or is it a? I don’t fully know.
Anything that has an i, e or c. I pretty much misspell those words pretty frequently which is why spell check is my best friend.
But my most common spelling errors are often the result of a mutlti-tasking braing and slow typing fingers. For example, the word I most often misspell is my own name.
Rosa. It’s not that I have issue with spelling my own name. It’s only four letters people, but for whatever reason I manage to butcher it and spend endless moments typing and retyping my name. Roda, Riosa, Risa, Raiosjds. The list goes on. My spelling needs help, but maybe I should refresh my typing skills. It’s a thought.
