    Re: today and for today

    That's it for today.
    That's enough for today.
    I've already written my diary entry for today.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's more natural not to use the contraction in short sentences where have is the main verb. Say I have no class today or I don't have any classes today.
    I am not a teacher.
