Student or Learner
Is the following is good English? Has it got any mistakes?
'As I cannot see any position in IT this time that both would suit me and might be considered as one that is worth striving for, I would say that I aim for mental perfection.'
What do you mean that doesn't make any sence? Are you trying to say that it is nonsense? I am being really upset when I see such statetments...
Both refers to would suit me and might be considered as...
For the second one, if I had written the second part like you, that would be nonsense, to me.
However what I wrote is not. If I were you I would rather say it was weird. Or why don't say that in a more polite way like
'I cannot see any sense in this sentence?'
Because... some time ago I posted a funny story that I translated into English by myself. The first comments I saw were like yours. Others wrote they can't understand that and, to me, it was perfectly polite. And then there appeared a native who got the joke and found it very funny. Can you comment on that? Doesn't that prove my point?
It is not that I am not grateful to your critical replies, but could you be more accurate when posting such answers.
I hope you would understand what I were trying to say.
