    • To be very honest I am very idle but before exam I become very much industrious. Naturally I am unambitious but to get good marks I am too much ambitious. Some time I am too much lazy but sometime too much hard-working but it depends on time and situation. I think I am not so much foolish as others think about me though not so much bright instead I think I am clever not stupid. Others say that I am very much intelligent but sometimes I do such things that prove I am unintelligent. Sometimes I am generous and giving in case of distributing money to poor persons but sometime I become very much miserly and mean. But I am frugal not extravagant. But frugal for myself but extravagant for others.

      • Hello Krishn! So nice to see you again! Maybe next time try not to use so much “so much” and “too much”(#^.^#). Love you~

  • I am industrious. But somewhat I am idle too.

    I am not unambitious cause my ambitions are very big so that’s mean I am ambitious.

    I like to do hard work but severel times I show my laziness towards work.

    I am very bright student so I get rid of foolish people cause they have a habit to spoil others.

    We all should be clever-minded because stupidity can let us in terrible trouble.

    Everyone should being generous with needy people, no one can takes money with them in graveyard. Sometimes Being mean person can be dangerous for ourselves though.

    I am frugal, I spend money as much as is necessary. Cause being extravagant can disbalanced my financial position…
