there is too much inside of me, i need to release
i want to get it all out and just watch myself bleed
this need that is there,
no one cares
i feel so ugly
ashamed of myself
want to run...some place else
no way to leave, no where to go
no one can help you
when you feel this alone
Let me start by saying that my first line in that comment was meant facetiously. I didn't really hate your work, quite the contrary, it touched me. I really felt for your inner catty. Tried to encourage you with a discussion of catty prowess. Perhaps it was too abstract of an interpretation but I seriously didn't want it to come across as arrogantly pseudo intellectual. More like playfully encouraging, sort of offer some flea protection against letting words mean more than primal instinct. I agree cats are silent, i rarely hear mine approaching unless it wants to announce itself. I'm into martial arts so I definitely relate having a catty side, sort of a silent hunter. I was hoping to encourage yours and didn't mean to be denigrating or derogatory, more like encourage you to appreciate the personal sanctity of your inner catty. I guess I have to get it, no help. Sometimes my ramblings aren't as clear or succinct as I planed them to be. No offense intended here, really, I swear. After all sometimes words make me wish I had more effective flea control also. I guess all this is meant to say I empathize. Meow!
I would just say use punctuation as if you're writing a normal sentence. If you don't like using it, then it's probably better to use too little than too much. I think the best way to improve is looking at what other people write. And it's ok to use no punctuation!
It's about one day in my Psych Stats class, my teacher was doing something about smokers, and she asked the class if anyone smoked, and no one raised their hands. Then he asked "how many of you smoke, but are afraid to admit it." and then one girl raised her hand. Then he asked her "why do you smoke?" and then she said I don't know, and started to cry. And then he moved on with class. But it just affected me so much, because I don't think the teacher meant to be a jerk.
But the 0 and 5 thing, I thought about it on ANGELO's page, and I figured it's probably because when he was talking about making histograms, he said always used intervals of 5. So that was probably the reason.
But thanks for being interested enough to ask!! =]
