I sometimes double space after a period, but not always. When did people stop doing that?
I also use Oxford commas, always.

I've recently become obsessed with paying off at least the interest on my student loans.

Why can't I be like other college kids, and pretend like they just don't exist until I graduate?

I swear. This isn't a backdoor brag. I'm legitimately annoyed. I'd much rather spend this money on food and clothes, at the moment. Mostly food. Like flatbread.

I love me a good Oxford comma. Those will never go out of style.

Why am I looking up Chipotle nutritional information like it's gonna change my mind?

I got the apartment that I wanted. I'm very happy, but nervous because I've basically got one month to pack and get the heck out of the place i'm in now.
I have a headache.

Congrats, Springcurl! It sounds like a nice place! Hopefully your moving process will go smoothly!

I didn't realize people didn't double space after punctuation anymore.

Then again I have a friend who is a professor and she has students in a physics class who write term papers using text abbreviations like LOL and the like.

Sometimes it isnt evolution. Sometimes its being lazy.

Oh. My. God.

Did you really ask me if I like a particular actress just to tell me you know somebody who knows somebody who's representing her at the agency where you hope to land a book-to-movie deal as a first-time, unpublished author whose manuscript contains quality gems like "the flowers were colorful"?

Is that really the only way you can have a conversation??

Are you real life???

Since so many kids grow up typing these days, I'm pretty sure typing classes are unnecessary.

My mom took typing classes when she was in school and was taught the double space, but she doesn't really use it any more.

It looks awkward on Word documents and emails to me. It's like unnecessary white space.

It actually bothers me to see sentences so close together! There needs to be a clear distinction between that sentence and this one. And two spaces makes it clear.

This new job has a LOT of one-spacers. It makes me nuts. Truly nuts.

I also always double space after a period. I just can't help it!

Also, anyone know a delicious recipe for groundhog?

The snow is up to my knees and still going strong. I ALMOST LOST MY CAR IN MY TINY WORK PARKING LOT. IT'S AN SUV. THIS SHOULDN'T HAPPEN!

It's useful.
