    I do not understand your question. Please rephrase it.

    (Both sentences are grammatical, by the way, except that one cannot collect sentences.)

    It must be a hot day there. It is quite warm here. (Ninety degrees Fahrenheit as I type this.)

    :wink:

    I think 'collect' = correct.

    I feel like I am sweating. Eventhough I am staying just still here.

    As you are using a verb, many would prefer 'I feel as if...'. However, in modern English, many would use 'like' there. The sentence is strange- you should know whether you are sweating or not, but it's correct. 'Even though' is two words. I'd say:
    I am sweating here even though I'm completely still.

    How about: "It is so hot I am sweating just sitting here at the computer."

    Or: "It is a really hot day. I am only sitting still and I am sweating."

    Or: "It is so hot today that I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking."

    :wink:

    It's such a hot day that sweat is pouring off me even though I'm just sitting still.

    ???

    That is good. The "pouring off" is a rather evocative phrase.
