Your and You'reContraction vs Possessive

Thank you!

Now if we could teach the world to spell definitely instead of definately. Dictionary.com says, "Did you mean definitely?"

I have two confessions to make. Firstly, I use "it's" for both the possessive and the contraction. I know, I'm bad. The possessive does not possess the apostrophe.

Secondly (and this happens more when speaking than writing), I sometimes forget the plural. I'll use "it's" when I should be using "they are". I never use "it is" for "they are", but the "it's" contraction is just so cute and easy to say, I say it when it's not correct.

But at least I can use they're and their and there correctly.
