I love to learn. I’m ridiculously curious and can get lost in learning about something I’m interested in. I get sort of swept up in it all, one thing leading to another. There is no reason to ever stop learning and I for one think it keeps us young! Currently, I’m learning grammar/punctuation. Yup, you read that right. I’m a 40 something year old woman who never really understood the rules of gammar so I’m doing something about it now.
I have a love hate relationship with commas. I LOVE to use them, but I hate the fact that I honestly am never sure if I should be using them. 😉
I write like I talk. To me, (should it be there? I don’t know!!) I think that I should use a comma every time I pause.
My son, who get this….was homeschooled BY ME…until the 7th grade is a grammar rock star. Don’t ask me. I guess that answer key is what saved us. 😉
I’m one of those people that thinks things either click or they don’t. If they do, you just get something. If they don’t…you have to work at it.
So I am taking a grammar class online at Khan Academy. I haven’t made it to commas yet…obviously, ( 🙂 ) but they are a part of the course. Hopefully this class will be enough to set me straight on the comma front and maybe even help with some other issues….Affect/Effect anyone? Don’t waste your time trying to explain any of this to me in the comments. My son has tried more times than we can count and it has had no effect, affect, effect, affect…..on my ability to know the difference.
So what have you learned lately? (And how many of you counted my errors in this one post? HA!)
Thanks for reading~
