    Mispell By Choice

    Some words I prefer to spell a certain way. Like the word awsome. I know it is spelled awesome, but awsome is more awsome, and people still get the point. Meow, miu, nya.

    Irritating

    Thats what it is. I used to think it was a good thing to correct others grammer or spelling, but since I started English 101 (Composition) for college this year, I'm learning that correcting others mistakes can **** them off badly. Imagine how you'd feel if you spent a week on a...

    This One Person...

    There's this one person who was stupid enough to start a mini troll war against me just because I didn't know that it's and its are two entirely different things. The latter is a more possessive version of it and the former is used with an apostrophee and it's a way of saying it...
