Hey Reyanna -- your "like" is different than the one I was referring to. I still say that "like" all the time!
I am very much an AP style nerd and find it hard to write things non-AP style, such as when I'm writing a list and I leave off the last comma before the "and." People probably think I don't know my commas, but I do! Another example is taking the first way of spelling a word in the dictionary. While the dictionary says "canceled" and "cancelled" are correct, AP style says to go with the first version. (So I always cringe when I see it the second way!)
