Embarrassingly enough, I tend to confuse "past" and "passed" and it really makes me go asdfghjkl especially since I'm a writer (though, I'm not sure if I'm a very good one) and I'm supposed to know these kinds of things

It's just so confusing, ok?

Look, I know the difference between them
I know that "passed" is the past tense for "pass"
and "past" is a noun referring to events that already happened, you know, the opposite of future/going beyond something

but I'm not sure which one to use in sentences sometimes
like should it be "please do not go passed tier 1" or "please do not go past tier 1"

    the photos were outdated tho you should see him now he got muscles like wHOA where did those come from but really guys, compared to the other hoot owls I'm not that obsessed, honestly, I mean I refuse to reblog that shirtless pic of him because that seems to be taking it a bit too far imo that must count for something

    To answer your question (I think it was a question), it should be "Please do not go past tier 1".
