    Post a memorable incident

    I 7. I have never been good at math. However,before entering the university, I had to study math to pass the entrance exam.I remember a good teacher I had. I used to feel so motivated after his classesthat one day I decided to buy an Algebra book. I was enthusiastic and proud ofmyself because I wanted to learn more. That evening I went to a book fair nearmy school. I bought it. Then, I went to the bathroom. And when I was lookingfor the receipt, I dropped the book to the toilet. Thankfully there wasn't muchwater and it was cleanI took out the book of the toilet and put it into the bag.I felt stupid and dumb. I went home quickly. Everybody were going to laugh atme for sure, so I didn't say anything. In the end I gave it away to my father.

    Punctuation. You need a space after words and after commas and periods.

    Re: a memorable incident

    The first sentence is fine. For the second sentence, try:

    However, before I could start classes at XYZ University, I had to study math so I could pass the entrance exam.

    Say:

    I found an algebra book, and I bought it.

    (Please note that "algebra" is not a proper noun.)

    Re: a memorable incident

    What reason was there to look for the receipt for your book while you were in the men's room?

    Re: a memorable incident

    You do know that "stupid" and "dumb" are two words that mean the same thing, don't you?
