: I’m not some perfect writer but the way some…
OH MY GOD MAGDA I UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY. I’m in AP English and we have to revise eachother’s essays all the time and some people write the stupidest fucking things and I’m just like HOW ARE YOU IN THIS CLASS. I swear I have OCD with grammar.
Exactly! I took AP English last year and half of the class was full of try-hards who used thesaurus.com for everything in their attempts to sound intelligent, and the other half was full of kids who could barely read. I’m not a perfect writer, I know that, but sometimes reading the things people write bothers me because if you read it out loud, you know they took too much time to try (keyword: try) and sound smart when it really, it sounds awkward.
