I don't think the punctuation following "lately" needs to be a semi-colon. A comma would work there.

http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/commas.htm
Use a comma + a little conjunction (and, but, for, nor, yet, or, so) to connect two independent clauses, as in "He hit the ball well, but he ran toward third base."

Contending that the coordinating conjunction is adequate separation, some writers will leave out the comma in a sentence with short, balanced independent clauses (such as we see in the example just given). If there is ever any doubt, however, use the comma, as it is always correct in this situation.

True, a comma-splice would also work in said place. However, the lack of punctuation altogether designates a negative impact on the final grading.

I am pretty sure that both spelling and grammar are part of English 101.

Yup. The character was made as part of a set group with Guide, Tutorial, Effeikyu, and Protip.

My guild is awesome.

I lost track of the course objective when it turned into a cheesy "hot for teacher" flick:

Nikachelle wrote:WTF! I had a B-, refreshed the page and had a C-. Fucking teacher.


Is this foreshadowing?

Oh, I guess it is. I think I've seen this one before.

What's driving me crazy is that I'm not even a native english speaker, and yet I notice a lot of grammar or spelling mistakes.
Note that it's the same in french; people make mistakes all the times and it annoys me a lot.

I wonder if people don't know or if they just don't care to write correctly...
