Raspberry has a "P" and other confessions

Usually the struggle is real with naming my confessions posts but this week it wasn't. My number one confession pretty much named the post and if I had my way it would be the only confession of the day ... because it blew my little mind away. But so as not to bore you I threw in a mish mash of other random as heck confessions. Whatever popped into my head.
1. I've always been a good speller. I never had an issue with spelling literally ever. On Monday though ... I learned for the first time in my years of existence on this planet that the word "raspberries" has a P in it. I was reading blog and they had a valentine gift idea of chocolate stuffed raspberries. So I went to comment ... and Mr. red squiggly line appeared under "rasberry" ... and then it happened ... The moment I saw the P.


How, just how did I get through two undergrad degrees, a post grad dip and almost completing a masters without knowing this? I blame the fact that its not a common fruit where I live... no scratch that ... there is no excuse. None.

2. I might not show it but I grew up in church. For the vast majority of my life, I went to church every Sunday, was in every Christmas concert, play, youth group you name it. And the early to mid twenties hit and I went bat shit cray (sorry mama). I still consider myself Christian and very spiritual (I pray all the time), but I haven't set foot in a church in a hot minute, I fear it will burn straight to the ground. I'm not kidding. Sometimes I truly miss it. Other times not so much.


3. I have two twitters - I know I know its weird. When I started the blog I read all sorts of advice on how to start a blog and having one name on social media was right up there. So I created the blog twitter. The problem? I rarely use it because I'm busy tweeting on the non-blog twitter where most people don't even know I have a blog. The cycle is vicious and very real. One day when I decide not to care who knows I have a blog Ill combine them ... I just don't want to let go of the original one. Its my name and I've had that one for so long ... #thestruggle

4. Last Friday I drank two vodka sodas and it was the first time I had a sip of anything other than water/my smoothies in weeks ... it. was. awesome.


5. This:

Lots of randomness in this one post. But that's the point of confessions isn't it?



Linking up with Melissa

Have a great Wednesday!!!

  1. Love it. No worries on the spelling though. I write all the time, have won spelling bees and still forget if tomorrow had two Rs or two Ms. Also I cannot say the word cinnamon correctly! In addition my twitter handle is the handle created to promo my novel....hence why it is so strange and has Nada to do with my blog!

  3. Everyone has that one word they never realized they were spelling wrong. I learned that I spent most of my life spelling embarrassment wrong. That was just an embarrassment ;)

  5. I confess that I am NOT a good speller. Without auto-correct I'd be doomed LOL

  6. That's funny! I hate words that have secret letters in them like bologna or pneumonia, so dumb! And I have a bachelors in English so I love words, but those ones are the worst!

  7. Haha too funny about raspberry! I've always been good at spelling too, but there are certain words I struggle with every time I write/type them! I'm like wait, does that have two r's or just one?? EVERY TIME!

  8. There are words that I literally have to triple check to make sure are spelled right and even then it doesnt look write to me!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  9. I struggle with combining social media personal stuff and blog stuff too. Mostly facebook because that is where all my real life friends and family are. I wish I could just spend an entire day in bed reading and napping. I feel too guilty though!

  10. I'm a terrible speller. So I'm always double checking myself.

  11. I was the same way with church when I was growing up. Recently I felt this strong urge to go back (I've been going off and on for the past year or so). I forgot how much I loved it! It's definitely helped me in other areas of my life as well. ;)

  12. I had a vodka drink last weekend.......it was heaven......then I had another one.... ;-) I'm a terrible speller girl. I google search everything all the time :)

  13. I used to go to church every Sunday up until college, and the whole Catholic priest firestorm happened. Made me lose faith, much more spiritual now, that church based. When you have a choice, always read! ;)

  14. I have 2 twitters as well. Although I only use my blog one for contests... my bad. My parents had my brother & I go to church until we were confirmed & then it was up to us. Sometimes I miss church but I didn't really like the hypocrisy (thought you should know I originally put a c where there should be an s) that I felt existed in a lot of them so I haven't. I would if I found one I liked...I just haven't really tried.

  15. eh, the way i see it, you dont have to be a church-goer or be part of any religion to be considered a good person. heck, i'm not even baptised and neither is kayla. some people frown upon that, like i'm raising some sort of devil-worshipping hellion but going to church or being part of a religious group/sect doesn't define who we are. if it does for some people; awesome! it's just not for us.

  16. I don't think faith is housed in buildings or ruled over by others. Faith is in your heart and it's different in everyone's.

  17. Hahah ok the last ecard is every Saturday and usually I realize I'll be a huge bitch if I choose read over nap. *Usually*. "P" in raspberries isn't the worst late-in-life lesson so don't be too hard on yourself ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I mean, the English language has all kinds of weird silent letters. Why must you have a p, raspberry??? Why must you have a g, lasagna? It's totally lame!

    I haven't been to church in a long time. I don't think you have to go to church to believe in your faith or be a good person :)

  19. This entire post made me giggle. And you are NOT alone in the raspberry thing. I always have to go back and correct it. And the struggle between napping and reading is too real. I wish I could say reading always wins out. *Winces*

  20. Hahah love this. I consider myself a really good speller too and for some reason I was spelling forty as fourty for the longest time! (facepalm). Also yay vodkas!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hahahaha I love your raspberry confession. Hey, we all have gaps! There are some words that I write alllll the time for work and somehow can never get right.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love all of these! Quitting booze for awhile sucks but then those first few drinks back are sooooo good - and I love how much cheaper it is to get a buzz when we drink less (:

    ReplyDelete
  23. LOL The Joey gif is perfect for your first confession! I've definitely had moments with spelling where I'm like how did I NOT know how to spell this correctly?

  24. I'm dying over the Vodka GIF. So my life currently. I had 4 mimosas with brunch this week. So much for that no alcohol pact with myself!

  25. Your GIFs are too funny! I'm on the same page as you on #2. I never found a church that I liked after moving here but I feel growing up with it had given us some good backbones to continue through life.

  26. I pronounce the P in raspberry . . . I seriously hate the English language. So many stealthy, evil silent letters and then there are the words THROUGH, THOUGH AND TOUGH . . . who knew ough could be so ridiculous . . . I also struggle with linking my social media to my blog. To link or not to link. My blog links to everything but I don't necessarily want my co-workers or the moms of the kids my kids go to school with to know I have the blog that I do. The struggle is definitely real. :)

    1. Hi Kristen thanks for visiting the blog! Maybe if I pronounced the P it would be easier haha and the social media stuggle is so real!

  27. I totally relate to #2. I grew up there too. The vodka thing reminds me of my wine thing. I was pretty sad not having any wine last month. Now I have been allowed to have it almost a week and I haven't touched it yet. What is going on? haha. Maybe I secretly think that after the drought I won't be able to stop if I start. ;-)

  28. I've known there was a 'p' in raspberry only because we have quite a few that grow around where I live, that and I love eating them. I actually started reading earlier and got about a chapter in then decided to take a nap instead ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is SUCH a struggle. I usually read until I can't keep my eyes open! I have three twitters and hardly use any of them! I'm more of an Instagram girl.

    ReplyDelete
  30. And then I saw the "P" has to be the greatest line of all time! I literally LOL'd!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sometimes I don't know if I want to nap or read either. Sometimes I read a bit first...and then nap.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I must confess that the Raspberry confession was probably the best ever! I literally laughed out loud!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. There are SO many silent letters in the English language. Stupid!
    The faith topic is weird and sensitive in my house. I lost faith a few years back. Ironically it was a theology class that pushed me to leaving my faith. Today I just focus on being a good human to other living creatures and the environment. If there is an almighty being hopefully he or she will understand.

  34. #5 is so me too! And I have the same issue as #1, but I think it's maintenance that I just learned how to correctly spell in the last few years.

  35. OMG, I feel you on the raspberry confession. I pride myself on my spelling ability so if I find out I've been spelling something wrong, it blows my mind too.
    I used to have just a personal Twitter, then I made a blog Twitter and now I never use the other one. Same with Instagram. And I would never link the personal and blog ones because I don't want people finding my blog either! But recently my sister in law found out about it (I love her, so it's all good), but she tweeted something to my blog Twitter instead of my personal one…let's just say the Joey gif you used would have been appropriate in that scenario.

  36. Raspberries is dumb. It should be a Z in there! RUDE.
