Modest goal for 2012

My NY resolution is to learn how to spell ten of my most commonly misspelled words correctly. I'm using this article for most of my list, though of course there will be no switching to "manoeuvre" from the normal spelling.

My list is:
separate
definitely
weird (personal issues with this word, see this page for a fabulous mnemonic)
embarrass
unnecessary
fluorescent
rhythm
privilege
occurred
maintenance
vicious

Of course this is actually 11 but these are words that I have spelled wrong many times - so there is lots of room for me to improve here!

What a lovely resolution -- clear and manageable and not self-hating as so many of the resolutions people make tend to be.

FWIW, I've never had trouble with 'definite' since I noticed that it contains 'finite', which in turn contains 'fin' as in 'end'.

And probably even less helpfully, 'maintenance' is related to 'tenant' and 'tenancy'.
