I think this is like... obscenely early. Like, almost 4 months ahead of last year. Calm down guys, calm down.
2 months, ours was started in February

Yeah... I actually know that and that's what I meant. But I was reading your post that said the word "October" and my brain got confused. Now I got to make an edit.

I was curious so I went a searching. They've been started in February since c/o 2017, but prior to that much later - 2016's was started in May, 2015's wasn't started until August, 2013's in June. The first one, for class of 2013, was started in September, after everyone had already started classes! Hence the question of how they were doing, having started vet school.

So I definitely was about to say "February is more than two months away" but then I realized I have finals brain and it really is December.

Oh good, I'm not the only one who briefly forgot it was December.

actually, the spaced out ellipsis in the thread title kind of makes me less happy. It's weirder every time I look at it.
I was thinking the same thing. Shame on you for spacing out the ellipses, PBC!

thepunctuationguide.com supports me:


Informal writing

In informal writing, an ellipsis can be used to represent a trailing off of thought.

If only she had . . . Oh, it doesn’t matter now.

She's the only other English major I know of on here. :p
I wasn't aware writing an ellipsis required a four year degree. :p

I guess WZ can correct me if I'm wrong but when I've looked it up in the past... I think there's actually no consensus on which way is "correct" and it comes down to preference.

All I know is that '...' was considered incorrect formatting in my undergrad essays. (Plus it looks weird :p)

If my degree was all a lie . . . :sorry:

iPhones do this for an ellipsis when you hold down the period key

Don't think it ever came up in any of my classes! I don't know that I've ever seen the spaced out version.

Maybe it's a regional thing?

My perception of the world has been shattered.
Ha. Seems to be mostly personal preference. I like without the spaces because I don't want my ellipsis to be broken up by a line break.
