|12:44 am - University life.|
The fact that there're people at my university (Canada born, first language is English) who spells special as specail worries me.
The fact that there're people at my university (again, Canadian born, first language is English) who spells Chinese as Chinease worries me (the fact that that particular document was to be sent to the Chinese embassy/Chinese government worries me even more).
The fact that there are people at my university that would lower their voices for fear of other people over-hearing to talk to me about "those strange...you know...homosexual people" worries me.
The fact that for one Student Federation election, there are walls covered with campaign posters, estimating about 20/candidate/wall, all of whom supposedly want a "greener campus" makes me want to cry and laugh at the irony.
And happy Valentines Day everyone =D

You got to be kidding-there really are people who spell "Chinese" that way?!And I totally agree with you on the "green campus" thing-I'm all for environmental issue promotion, but now it seems to be more of a fad than a legitimate cause (though this is not reason enough to abandon "green" thinking).You have yourself a chocolate-indulged V-day too!-James
Yeah apparently there are, and her letter started with "Dear Chinease Government" and I was like X___x;; yeah that'll get their attention real fast. CHOCOLATeS *___*
I admit, I'm a pretty bad speller. But that is quite surprising.. o.O;
Hope you had a good V-day too *hugs*
Yeah and there's some other ones that I can't remember right off the top of my head, but it's like, holy hell how did these people get into university??? O___o
Happy V-day~ <3<3<3<3
I've recently noticed that my spelling (in Hebrew, I don't even wanna talk about my English XD Ask Liron!!) has gone downhill, now you made me feel bad about it. ;___; lol
*checks spelling before posting* XD
Happy Valentine's day! (=
Yeah but if it's like, internet stuff or just writing to friends then I don't think it's a big problem, plus accidental typos are common, but these people actually think these words are spelled that way, they're not just one-time typos.
Plus that one to the Chinese embassy just made me cringe, she was writing on behalf of Amnesty International to complain about freedom of protest in China, and her letter started with:
"Dear Chinease Government" and continued to use "Chinease" around 6 or 7 times throughout the letter and I was like x__X
Even if she suffered from, I dunno, a severe case of dyslexia, it still wouldn't be an excuse to be a complete retard. o____o;;; People who have these problems and are older than 10 check what they type, at least before sending something so, um, formal. XDDD
'Dear Chinese Government'?! XDDDDD
