Truly is the best. Should set it as Riley's homepage.

I've been seeing an increasing amount of people typing things like "would of" and "could of" instead of "would have" and "could have". It makes me so sad. Easily my biggest peeve right now.

Haha. I know I do that a bit. The other thing I do (and people keep pointing this out at school...) is when I say "I'll do good on this."

"no, you'll do WELL on this."

ARGH! I know I'm wrong, I don't know where I picked that up from. Now that it's been pointed out it's pissing me off.

Guys...

Spell opportunities as opportunitys in Chrome, then try to spell-check it. When could you possibly use "opportunity's"?

Hmm. Lowercase O...

I mean, I guess the only use I could think of would be in an expression like "opportunity's knocking"
