    In 1, it should be 'amazed'.
    4 sounds a bit strange without further context.
    5- without more context, I wouldn't use this verb form with always- unless you hate getting up early.
    7 is wrong.

    Simple tenses, yes, not always with progressive forms.

    Yes, you can use 'new'in this way.
