    Received, recommend, and misspell! Plus a lot of "i before e except after c" words. I'm so embarrassed when I can't spell a word! Also, embarrassed. I just realized that when my Firefox caught it! Always forget that second "r"!

    For principal, somebody told me to think of the principal as your pal. For weird " We are weird" I had a hard time with definite until I realized finite is in the word. I have to use all these tricks because my first four years of school were in a foreign language with very different spelling rules. I also pronounce a word in my head the way it is spelled. For example instead of scissors, I think SKIZZORS. Or K nife. etc..... That being said, I have a caard time with vacuum and recommend.

    raisin and I always get mixed up with artic and antartica
    My spelling has gotten worse over the years, since I'm always helping my first graders how to just "sound it out."
