I’ve been feeling super-stressed & overwhelmed lately.  I knew it was time for a change, so I did some (additional) homework to the mounds that surround me daily.

I’ve been a subscriber to Greatist‘s daily emails for several months now, which linked me to a new one today: Zen Habits.  I love it!

Please, if you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed, give it a look.  Both sites have some great tips and tricks to help decompress your stress.

Why English Is Hard To Learn

We’ll begin with box; the plural is boxes,

But the plural of ox is oxen, not oxes.

One fowl is a goose, and two are called geese,

Yet the plural of moose is never called meese.

You may find a lone mouse or a house full of mice;

But the plural of house is houses, not hice.

The plural of man is always men,

But the plural of pan is never pen.

If I speak of a foot, and you show me two feet,

And I give you a book, would a pair be a beek?

If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,

Why shouldn’t two booths be called beeth?

If the singular’s this and the plural is these,

Should the plural of kiss be ever called keese?

We speak of a brother and also of brethren,

But though we say mother, we never say methren.

Then the masculine pronouns are hehis, and him;

But imagine the feminine…sheshisand shim!
