The little squiggle is called a tilde. (til -day)

: a mark ˜ placed especially over the letter n (as in Spanish señor sir) to denote the sound \nʸ\ or over vowels (as in Portuguese irmã sister) to indicate nasality
2
a : the mark tilde used to indicate negation in logic and the geometric relation “is similar to” in mathematics b : the mark tilde used to indicate an approximate value

Thank you very much Karen !
Though you can't really use the tilde in spanish, cause you just can't combine it or anything, but I know what to use when mathematizing

Commas. Because it annoys me when people type without commas, especially when the sentence really needs them T-T

I always add commas in my sentences. I don't like sentences without commas, to be honest.
Sometimes I add too many commas, and my English teacher's like "What's with all the commas?" and stuff. She's pretty funky

When I was in third grade, my teacher wrote like a whole paragraph without commas and asked us to read it. It was so tiring D:
Lesson about commas.

Not about commas, just like random stuff with no commas or periods. A really really short story I think.

I tend to overuse commas. xD Not that they really can be overused, if you're using proper grammar and whatnot, but I feel like my sentences get too long.
