I just reviewed the post below and now it’s killing me.
Should I write an or a before “SAP (Socially Awkward Person)”?

ok you should always base it on speech context.
it’s an an when the next letter starts with vowel when pronounced, e.g. an SAP (es-ay-pee); an EU policy (ee-yu)
it’s an a when it starts with consonant when pronounced, e.g. a UN general secretary (yu-en); a European Union mission (yu-ro-pee-an).
so. never base it on written form. you did well :)
wooww thank you, miss wie!
you’re like, my new hero! (again)
you should get a medal, really.
well then you’re my little hero. just because. :P
i think this is my only chance to get given a medal, i seriously suck at other things in life
ah come on man, you’re like super smart and you write amazing shit :D
aaahhh nooo, i don’t lie except to my parents when i get home late.
YAW LOVE YOU SO
anyway, pimples sizing nipples?
you are strange, my dear.
aw, interesting xD xD
‘historical’ is an exception, it’s preceded by ‘an’ because much to my surprise, the h remains silent.
(yeah i’m obsessed like that)
grammar obsessed people are awesome.
