Of course, I will take a course of action.
Of course, the man took a course in learning the new skill.
Of course, many runners ran a course along the street.
I admit I was a poor student in school many years ago; honestly, I barely graduated high school and I did not attend college. I had no interest in Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, English, well you get the idea. The only subject I excelled in was Band – I was excellent in this subject.
Years later into my adulthood, I would start learning and applying myself to new subjects, topics and ideas. It was my 30’s and I started to become interested in improving myself and took interest in areas that in my school years I just did not want to comprehend.
Today in my mid 50’s, I still am not an expert at anything, and consider myself above average on subjects taught in school those many years ago. Since starting this blog 20 months ago, I have written a post every day. Most my posts are written from my heart, soul and the words flow to written form. I certainly am not the greatest speaker, well you know that – you have watched and heard many of my videos; so, my writing is not always the best and I know at times I have used grammar incorrectly.
It pleases me that no one corrects me – thank you.
The posts I write, I read and re-read and proof read before publishing them on WP. Once published, I read and re-read them again. I say to myself I have written and published another great post, right?” Well yes, the post itself could be considered great or good or at lease decent. But what about the grammar? Okay, after reading, re-reading, proofing, then reading and re-reading; darn it – I made a mistake. I hate that, how did that happen?
At times my brain sees and reads something different than what I write. In past posts, I write about my learning disabilities as a child, my internal struggles with myself; it is all here on my blog somewhere. I make mistakes, I have shortcomings, and I am no expert at writing.
But I learn and I grow because, at this time in my life I am interested in learning; back in school many years ago, I was not.
What does Of course, … a course have to do with me learning and growing? I wrote a post back in November; I read and re-read and proof read before publishing and once published, I read and re-read again. My brain saw and read what it wanted to see other than what I wrote.
Almost 2 months later, I read the post again; darn it – I made a mistake. Did any of you catch it? If you did, no one corrected me – thank you.
I want to correct it today.
The original words –
I respond “Well, Thackerville is in Oklahoma which is a course North of Texas.
The corrected words –
I respond “Well, Thackerville is in Oklahoma which is of course North of Texas.
Or I guess I could have written it this way –
I respond “Well, Thackerville is in Oklahoma which of course, is a course I have driven many times North of Texas.
