Spelling

In first grade I was a bad speller. I worked OT with teachers on it and most of elementary school I couldn’t spell doctor right. In my first spelling bee I spelled “business” wrong which is fairly ironic and could make a case for what school actually teaches you is not really needed. Why do we memorize historical dates and people when you can look it up. Maybe that time I could be better utilized by teaching finance? I don’t want to go on about public school education as I have extensively already and will in the future. I recently learned how to spell tomorrow and how to pronounce cinnamon. Spelling is not my strong suite and I am not going to fix it. Many of my essays have errors as I am sure that this one will have a few as well. I don’t have time to fix this type of problem. I am not going to magically learn how to spell all of the words. Also I probably have some slight form of dyslexia because I will read things I have written 3x and still butcher the entire sentence. I think its kind of fun that people put so much emphasas on it. If I can understand you I could care less if you spelled something wrong like I did with emphasis in the prior one. People make fun of me for it but I honestly cant help it. I will have to look up how to spell common words all the time which is fairly annoying but such is life. I think it has something to do with my mentality with retaining pointless information. I have driven to my local gym downtown probably 75 times. Not only can I not explain to you where it is in Columbus but I cannot drive there with out GPS. Why do I need to know where to go if my phone is going to tell me. For the most part my phone does that with spelling. I outsource things like that and have my phone retain the pointless knowledge that I don’t need. Why would you memorize a phone number? It’s the same concept just applied with spelling.  Weirdly enough this doesn’t translate when I am crunching numbers so maybe that proves my point.
