    Question A few sentences

    Hi, are the following sentences correct?

    This was a lousy weekend, even though there were some issues that could make me think it wasn't so bad. The sun was shining all the time (an advantage, for sure). I met my friends I like hang out with (an advantage, as well). I didn't work at all: all the time I spent on relaxing, smiling, sleeping, eating, and so on... (an advantage, don't you think?) I bought a matchesbox, and I am the fan of matches. The only thing that makes me think it was a bad weekend was that, again, I didn't win on a lottery. So, in summary, what a lousy weekend it was! I hope the next one, the thought of which I've been keeping in my mind all the time since the beginning of Monday, will be better. Let us all hope that!
