If you're a texter like myself, then you might have problems switching from texting mode to actual English. Texting revolves around acronyms, LOL-laughing out loud, OMG- oh my god, TTYL- talk to you later, BRB-be right back, etc. These codes allow you to type texts faster, but they're also convenient because parents don’t understand what is being said.
Unfortunately, this habit can get in the way when writing a paper for school. I have caught myself more times than I can count spelling you “u”, the “da/tha”, or substituting “n” for “ing.” It’s a hard cycle to break. I’ve tried spelling the words out, but as soon as I do, I forget what I wanted to say because I’m putting so much thought into spelling it out. Texters, watch out, because the grammar police is on full patrol.
