    Some grammar issues

    I made some sentences (not home work, just for self learning) but I am not confident about it as the grammar issues.
    Would you please help me to find any error?

    Stay up late deprives anybody from doing well in class the next day.
    Do I need use "To stay up"?

    We just crossed the boundary of Kernisville on the car.
    Not sure "on" is correct?

    It inhibits me from moving on to ENG 111 because I received the grade "R" as repeat in my DRE098 class.
    repeat or repeating?

    In some conservative houses in this country, there are chimnies on them.
    The usage of "on"?

    The volcano at the Hawaii burst out into the Pacific ocean.
    Not sure

    I start to become ill by keep drinking cold stuff even if it is a cold day.

    Thanks for help.

    Staying up late at night makes it hard to maintain focus and complete tasks the next day.

    Re: Some grammar issues

    Why do all your sentences appear inside very strange blue boxes? Please type the sentences direct into a post so that when we click on "Reply with Quote", those sentences appear in our quote.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Some of the houses here have chimneys.

    (What is a conservative house?)

    No. Say:

    Staying up late at night makes it hard for a person to function well the next day (because of sleep deprivation).

    You had to repeat that grade.

    Volcanoes erupt. They don't burst. Try:

    The volcano erupted, and lava flowed from it into the Pacific Ocean.
