instead of oriented my whole life
It's an English only version of the word. People seem to hate it, though. US English doesn't use it.
but orieneted is from the old world where roles still apply!
something is oriented north: it is facing north
something is orientated north: it has been turned to face north

Only one 'h'
Also: lost count of the number of people (many of whom should know better) who say 'renumeration'.
