1) Write a sentence expressing a recent problem or event that upset you.
Recently I got upset because my mom had accused me of being lazy and not wanting to work and not having the motivation to chance my life situation.
IC1: Her accusations made me remember that I lost my house because I made the wrong choice of purchasing one in the wrong time. I was uninformed and made a hasty and rash decision to purchase without anticipating the consequences.
IG1: I lost my house but at least, I learned a lesson that I should assess and consult a professional before making decisions as important as investing in a house.
IC2: I wasted time and money on my extended family and they took advantage of me because I am gullible and easily taken advantage of.
IG2: I wasted time and money but at least I learned a valuable lesson which is don't over extend yourself and give when you can. Do what you can do. Think about my immediate family first and what beneficial to them before anyone else.
