Grammar - one of my weaknesses, my fears.
I swear correct grammar has been the bane of my existence, the cause of my mediocrity; I may be succumbing to the dramatic possibly but the emotional tie is no less real. I never understood what those little red circles and slashes meant. Their only point -- to make me feel horrible and utterly unable to communicated a coherent idea...

and how quickly do those moments of triumph last? but moments my dear. moments.
