    Question

    . Please:

    1) Is that correct to say:

    I studied English on purpose to go to the USA?
    or
    " on purpose" is only used to say that something is done with bad purposes ?


    2) Do I say ?

    . " Somebody and I " ?
    . " Somebody and myself "?

    Ex : Did you go to the cinema?

    Yes, jonh and I !!! Or John and myself?

    though not a native speaker but I have heard on purpose use for bad as well as good intentions.
    e.g He lost his way on purpose- that is to know as much places as he could
    he hit him on purpose - means to kill him

    The first choice here is correct as I here is a subject not an object
