    You have already been told that I is always capitalised.

    You have also been told to capitalise the first letter of every sentence and to capitalise proper nouns.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Please pay attention to the comments above. And make changes towards the capitalisations and punctuations.
    Besides, the first sentence is not correct. For perfect tenses, we use "since" + a point in the past. Therefore, when the point is completely unknown you cannot use since. The second sentence, however, can be correct. But it is better to mention the time exactly like in 1982 or etc.

    I don't see how that would be an improvement.
