Semicolons?
When do you use them?
When a comma just isn’t good enough!
Typically a semicolon is used for a discontinuity or pause.
It sits between two independent clauses (sentences that can stand on their own),
without the use of a conjunction (and, but, or).
EX. I have a date tonight; I cannot run errands.
The semicolon brings together two independent clauses that are related.

Waiting On Wednesday is from Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

Dreams of Significant Girls by Cristina Garcia

Brought together each summer at a boarding school in Switzerland, three girls learn a lot more than just French and European culture. Shirin, an Iranian princess; Ingrid, a German-Canadian eccentric; and Vivien, a Cuban-Jewish New Yorker culinary phenom, are thrown into eachother’s lives when they become roommates. This is a story of 3 paths slowly beginning to cross and merge as they spend the year apart, but the summers together. Through navigating the social-cultural shoals of the school, developing their adolescence, and learning the confusing and conflicting legacies of their families’ past, Shirin, Ingrid, and Vivien form an unbreakable bond.
