Affect vs. Effect: A Grammar Lesson

Just when I think I’ve got this one down, something trips me up.

Affect is something that happens. My favorite grammarian, Grammar Girl lists affect as a verb and is means to influence.

Effect is a result and a noun.

One is a noun, the other is a verb. With that, I shouldn’t be able to mix this up anymore.
