1/10 Meet Me Monday- I am a HORRIBLE Speller!

So, I realized that I don't really share much about myself. So I decided to dedicate a post, once a week, to letting you guys know a little about me... Meet Me Monday :)

And I thought I'd start out with the fact that I'm a horrible speller. I'm serious! If it weren't for spell check and auto correct, you guys would have one jumbled mess of words. People would be doubting my college degree.

I'm pretty sure my first B in school was when I was in 4th or 5th grade. In Spelling. I can remember sitting in a desk on the right hand side of the room, right next to the wall. Our teacher handed out report cards. And there it was. That horrible, heart-wrenching, devastating (for the record, I just misspelled this word. devisiating. yep.) letter. I got a *gulp* B. I remember putting my head down in my arms on my desk and crying. I was a straight A student. This didn't happen to me! So I officially blame all subsequent (ooh got that one right!) Bs (and Cs- but never any Ds or Fs!) on report cards to Spelling. Thanks a bunch Spelling. It's all your fault!

I mean, I've gotten ok over the years, but there's still a few words I misspell. My top 2 misspelled words are:

definately - correct spelling is definitely. But my phone auto correct now recognizes it as definately :)

suppossed - correct spelling is supossed. No, wait, it's supposed. There. Got it.

When I decided to write on this, I was SUPPOSED to write down more words because there are DEFINITELY more that I misspell. But I forget :)

I won't lie, I looked at the correct spellings above to write that sentence...

Alright, so what I want to know is.... are YOU a good speller? What words to you commonly misspell?

Spelling isnt my problem. Its punctuation. Im too rushed/lazy to use it correctly ;)

I'm a fairly good speller and for everything else there's spell check :)

My husband is the misspeller in our house. He is always asking me how to spell a word. My mom got my sister a misspellers dictionary before computers were big and there was no spell check.

Mare, my fiance is the misspeller also. My mother will call from working offshore just to ask how to spell something.
My problem is punctuation most of the time. However, I second guess myself too often and end up having the word spelled correctly in the first place.

Hi! I just found your blog (can't remember how...I'm blog hopping tonight!)

Enjoyed reading!

haha! I NEVER knew this about you! Sneaky iphone texter! I'm an incessant grammar & spelling Nazi! I guess that's why we're bff. ; )

Adam can't spell worth a flip though. haha. I actually just saw 5 minutes ago (after finishing & loving my newly rockin' awesome hair) that he put 'decals are stollen' on a form that must be notarized & taken to the dmv. We fixed it.

I misspell definitely all the time!!
My other word is necessary. Other than a few certain words I think I am a decent speller.
Don't ask me about punctuation though, I'm horrible at that.

Great idea to let us know more about you! :-)

Love that cave man cartoon. I was an anthropology major, so that one always cracked me up.

I am a teacher and not the best speller. My students would like to give me a spelling test one day!

I'm a horrible speller too. Right clicking to correct everything has only made it worse!
