Searching for Normalcy

"And finally, above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art…" – Felix Gonzalez-Torres

For the love of all that is holy, people…

  • It is “pique” your interest, not “peek.”
  • "Your” and “you’re” have completely different meanings.
  • "Their,” “they’re” and “there.” Learn these. Use them properly.
  • The plural of “woman” is “women,” not “womans.”
  • You would/could/should “have,” not “of.”
  • ”Past” and “passed” – also different.
  • “Weather,” “whether” and “wether” – again, all different (fyi: the latter is a castrated sheep).

Darn it!
