17. I over use ellipses.

I use ellipses way too often when I casually writing things, mostly in gchat. I think that in my head they carry a lot more weight than what it communicates to the people reading them...

I do, too. Actually, I overuse pretty much all punctuation. Commas are such a vice!

ahem. what happened to the 25 things? Also, my email is still in play, so we can set up a skype time there. Because I love you!!!

Have you started putting spaces between them? and/or putting four periods and thinking about whether or not there should be two spaces before the next sentence when you're just writing your own thoughts? Because that would be dangerous.

I haven't started putting spaces in or accounting for punctuation, but I've certainly thought about it. I decided that my random musings and im conversations just don't rise to the level of "Law Review Article," even if they are often deep and profound...
