    See above. As you can see, you made a lot of errors with tenses, articles and punctuation. I can't see how this is an exercise in using the present simple. The present simple is not appropriate for several of those sentences.

    It's important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
