Oh hello there, my grammar police.



I seldom use spell checkers nor consult a Linguist whenever I write a post. I am certain that my fingers are dyslexic and my brain always crash after 2 hours of non-stop thinking/internet surfing (make it 4 hours if I had coffee). I also hold myself accountable for whatever opinion I have. So it makes me extra happy to find someone who will read my long boring post, afterwards leaves a comment trolling me about my spelling, about how my subject and verb doesn’t โ€œagreeโ€, about my grammar and about my opinion. And she doesn’t even have the humor to leave her real name.

There is a big difference about criticism and bullying. Being trolled and bullied in grade school, I am quite certain I know the odds. (Iโ€™m sure using the word โ€œtrollingโ€ will infuriate a grammar police/spell checker like you because itโ€™s not even in the dictionary- yet. But let me reference Urban Dictionary just so you wonโ€™t hate me so much.)

And just so itโ€™s official: my writing is never spot-on and yes, I seldom give a damn if my subject and verb doesn’t agree or If my opinion is way out of line for you. Iโ€™m pretty sure I made this blog for myself, not for anyone. Knowing that people even read my nonsense is already a blessing to me, but an anonymous person who will read my blog and tell me I write ridiculously? OH MY! Iโ€™m feeling luxurious! Unless Itโ€™s you, mom! (I am aware I only have two readers, my mom and my little sister. So if itโ€™s either of you, we need to talk.)

Iโ€™d rather pour my heart out in here and drown you all with boredom than pretend to be someone Iโ€™m not. I have so many beautiful things to write about the world and it will take a lot for me stop. I believe that the content and the heart of a post is far more important than how itโ€™s grammatically/politically correct. Thank you for being so hateful. I promise to make more mistakes so youโ€™ll have a hard time. If you will be sending me messages, comments or emails, please leave your real name and address. I would like to send you something called โ€œlifeโ€.

Never let anybody steal your sunshine! ๐Ÿ™‚
