Part of this is probably attributed to the fact that my mom's deaf and I've been reading closed captioning on the television for a very long time. :) It's also made me a better reader.
I won my school spelling bee twice, and went to districts where I placed seventh (7th grade) and fourth (8th grade). Sadly, my high school doesn't offer a spelling bee. If they did, I'd definitely be in it.
Misspellings and misuses of grammar really annoy me. I want to be a book editor when I'm older.
Glad to find a community where people are just as dorky as I am about spelling! YAY!
