    very conscious of being

    I was very conscious of being a misfit at school.
    Stephen didnít expect her to mope about while he was away.
    The soursce of the information is irrelevant. Moreover, the information need not be confidential.
    I spend all day cleaning up after the kids.
    The above are seperate sentences. I not sure of their exact meanings. Can anyone help me?

    Re: very conscious of being

    What parts of the sentences don't you understand?

    For example, the last one ... I spend all day cleaning up after the kids ... does not mean that the kids clean up and then the complaining author spends all day doing it again after that; it means that the kids make a mess and it takes the author all day to restore order to the place.
