正直に言うと、もう何を書けば良いかわからない…(・'-・`) 私のentriesはちょっとバカだね。(笑)
I think I wrote too much. I'm so sorry haha! I wrote this for my lang-8 friend, Ken, but I wanted to share it here. I also tried to add some Japanese translations. You don't have to correct all of my sentences. Since I wrote a lot, it's okay even if you only correct one sentence! Thank you so much for reading.

Honestly, I don't exactly know what to write anymore haha. My entries are kinda stupid. Lol.
