English is as weird as it is beautiful. When you first learn it, there are all these odd intricacies and rules that go into properly expressing thought via words. Spelling is one such set of rules, as is grammar. Despite our teachers' best efforts, many of us still struggle with both. One portion of the population claims that the letters they toss together just don’t make sense, while another finds syntax a head-scratcher. Which is more difficult?

Spelling. It just—it doesn’t make a lick of sense. You think there’s one set of rules to abide by that’ll ease the pain of writing or typing out a sentence, then, BOOM, a thousand exceptions to that rule, so much so that it’s not even a real rule anymore!

Like “Wednesday.” Why is it spelled that way, especially given the way it’s pronounced? Or “restaurant.” Or…pick a word

Some words can be hard to spell, no doubt. But grammar? Forget it. One would be hard-pressed to find a person who’s entirely confident in his or her grammar skills. When you think about spelling, the memorization it takes to master the art of spelling is pretty straightforward. You most definitely cannot say the same thing of grammar.

Seriously—do you always use “whom” as opposed to “who” when you’re supposed to? Or can you count off the basic rules? Yes? Bully for you, pal.
