Spelling Test: How To Properly Shorten Your Favorite Words

Here at CollegeCandy we’re all about abbrevs. They save time, they’re funny and we like to think they spice up mundane conversation. Even though we might have started saying them sarcastically, all of these dandy shortened expressions have snuck their way into our regular vocabularies. But these sayings come with a serious problem. Obvs it’s all fun in games when we’re talking, but how on earth do you spell them?? Do you go with phonetics or just shorten the original word? Take a look at the CollegeCandy approved abbrev spelling, because we totes need to set the record straight.
