    Once I Promise Something

    Dear friends and Teachers,

    1. I have said what I want to say. I won't bother you anymore from now on. Once I promise something, I will do it.

    - Is this natural to say?

    Thanks a million!

    NamSteven

    You intend to say, 'as soon as I promise to do something, at that same moment and after that, consider it done."
    What you actually say is, "Once I promise something, I intend to do it... you mark my word...the day will come...one day in the future...
