Just wondering... Does the parenthesis suppose to come before or after a period.

That depends. If you have a sentence with something in parentheses inside of the sentence, but at the end of it, it would end like this: ). If you have a complete sentence inside of parentheses, it would end like this: .) i.e. I like sunshine (and sometimes rain). (I like sunshine and sometimes rain.) I was an English major, and a proofreader/copy editor so I know a few things. Hope this helps!

Its more of the place of the use. I mean to say if you open the parenthesis outside the sentence then the period will be coming first to parenthesis. But most of the cases will be ). cheers
