"definitely, indefinitely- Fin and finite appear in both of these words; there are no a’s. (Note: Your computer spell-checker may change definitely to defiantly, so don’t wing it by using your computer to supply the correct spelling!)” - The Bugaboo Review Guide to Grammar Sanity and Word Wisdom by Sue Sommer.
Trying to spell this word has made me feel so stupid. At the same time I wonder why Microsoft hasn’t fixed it so that spell-checker doesn’t try to incorrectly fix the word for you.
I miss going to school. I saw a girl in the car behind me with a parking permit that looked like the ones at ASU and it made me think about how I used to drive all the way down there to go to class. I wasn’t very social but I do kind of miss being in an actual classroom with people. Most of all I miss my writing classes. I feel so lost without them. I miss those kinds of classes. I knew there was book smart and street smart but I didn’t know there were real classes (real hard) and I guess easy fluffy classes. Maybe that’s why I picked English as my major, because it was easy and just fluff. Fluff that’s disappearing and not becoming anything real. I was fooling myself with all of it and maybe that’s why I miss it because I can’t fool myself anymore.
