Forgetting How to Spell Simple Words

Does anyone else forget how to spell really simple words sometimes? I'm pretty reasonable with the English language (and English is my first language) and I have always faired well with spelling, but sometimes...

I forgot how to spell "finish" today, I kept writing it on my whiteboard as "Finnish" for no reason whatsoever, and I knew it was wrong but I couldn't for the life of me work it out :) I just stared at it, slowly wiped away each letter, then wrote it out the same way hahaha. I'm laughing now, but after I did it a few times, I thought I was going nuts :)

I've done this before, my worst incident was completely blanking on how to spell "what" haha.

Has anyone else done this?

The one word I can NEVER spell:

exercise.

I always spell in excercise for some reason. I never get it right on the first try.  ::)

I am shocking at spelling, so there are many simple words that I really struggle with. Necessary and other words with lots of the letter s in them are almost impossible for me. There are so many words that I always spell wrong, but I've gotten better as I got older.

Had a freakout last night because I forgot how to spell maybe :P

"mabye", "maby", "mabie".

Little brain-farts like this really remind me that I should be getting more sleep.

I forgot how to spell bakery today. I literally wrote 'back' then stared at it for far too long before crossing out the C and continuing with 'ba (Scribbled out C) kery'. And I did it in front of a customer too! How embarrassing.

Separate. That's the word I can never spell. I always write it is seperate and then separate, and then chance it back to seprete. Ughhhhh.

I keep spelling "best" as "bessed", I think it's because "best" rhymes with "dressed" and I watch a lot of bestdressed on youtube ::)
I always seem to forget that "grateful" isn't spelt "greatful"
And lately I've been spelling "beautiful" as "beatiful"
