A random girl's random gymnastics ramblings.

why don't you just dress up as the taco bell chihuahua and bark the theme song to dora the explorer?


HOMESKOOL

Each one of these clips is from a current elite gymnast.  They're going to thank me for this one day.  So will their colleges.

  6. I've been waiting a while for you to go to town on this! There are some crackers out there. Someone ought to investigate whether over exposure to chalk causes literary deficits. Love your work

  10. Unfortunately, this confusion/ignorance is all too common among college students who come from public schools. And, so is using a possessive when one meant to turn a word into a plural.

  12. I hate to make an argument on this page, but I respectfully disagree with Anonymous at 12:45. I went to a public school, and I am now in pharmacy school, which happens to be a rigorous program. The assumption that public schools are inferior to private schools is wrong and, quite frankly, offensive. If students put in the effort, then they will be successful. Going to a private school is not an indicator of success.
    These gymnasts either do not care about such grammar rules, or they truly do not understand them.

  13. Grammar, spelling, and punctuation go out the window for most young people when they are using social media. I don't believe the type of school has anything to do with it.

  14. LOL! Okay, one mistake I understand. Could just be a typo, you know? But this many? "Your" kidding, right?!

  15. Sorry to anon at 3:20. I simply meant that poor grammar is not a function of home schooling necessarily. I've had plenty of private school educated students who commit the same verbal crimes. I personally blame the testing culture that has taken time away from real instruction. Nevertheless, we all know that school of any sort is not really a priority for any of these gymnasts.

  16. Lord, that's some horrible grammar. I know she's young but not knowing there's a difference between "your" and "you're" is a fairly common problem I see amongst most ADULTS I know, and it drives me insane. Did teachers just stop teaching this in school after I graduated??
