Hello guys,
Sometimes I use while being this way.
While being in my car I made my homework.
Instead of:
While I was in my car I made my homework.

Or:
I felt off my bike while being in the air.
Instead of:
I felt off my bike while I was in the air.

Today I saw this sentence:
He killed an enemy while blinded from a flashbang.
Can I also say:
He killed an enemy while being blinded (from a flashbang).
:?:

Is this okay and are the other sentences correct too?

Cheers!

Hello guys,
Sometimes I use while being this way.
While being in my car I made my homework. Not correct.
Instead of:
While I was in my car I made my homework.Almost correct. I did my homework.

Or:
I felt off my bike while being in the air.Not correct.
Instead of:
I felt off my bike while I was in the air.Almost correct. I fell off my bike while I was in the air.

Today I saw this sentence:
He killed an enemy while blinded from a flashbang.
Can I also say:
He killed an enemy while being blinded (from a flashbang).
:?: These two sentences have a shade of difference between them. Both are acceptable, depending on the time-frame. The preposition by should
replace with. What´s a flashbang?

Is this okay and are the other sentences correct too?

Cheers!

I hope this was helpful.
