I noticed today that I put an e at the end of a word that didn't need it. Whoops!

I never would have made this mistake before...

Yes I do that a bit too. The other weird side-effect is automatically trying to translate things that people of saying to me in daily life - like i'm trying to get extra duolingo points as I'm going through my normal day. Anyone else do that?

No, but I'd say that is a good stage to be at while learning, I hope I start to do that eventually

I keep thinking that will happen! When you're writing carotte so many times instead of the usual carrot, things are bound to get confusing.

I loose a lot of hearts that way. I type Yo and don't bother with the u when trying to type "you" in English
