"I like quotation marks." I said.
I am leaving YWO forever. It's been a pleasure working, talking, writing and getting to know you all. Some of you will be seeing me around TW. I'm quitting YWO because I can't do them both, even though I've been here longer and I've met some pretty awesome people. PM me if you'd like to say goodbye!

I like the exclamation mark! It can represent so many things. I also like the ellipse.

Ellipse. Because, it's one of the more uncommonly names for a Punctuation Mark. Also because it illustrates action and unknownness. And because it's awesome.

Semicolon/elipse are my favourites!
People assume that time
is a strict progression of cause to effect,
but actually, from a nonlinear,
non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like
a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey...

Mine is the ellipse. Although I never knew it had a name, I use it all the time! Quite useful...

After that would probably be the exclamation mark. I love it!
