Anybody want to help me with Grammar check?? 1. I often go to the seashore, and collect rocks because I love being outdoors. 2. My sister and I lived with our grandmother in a little house in the country, whenever I think of my granny now, I remember those good times. 3. I didn't know which job I wanted, I was too confused to decide. 4. if you are in fact only interested in winning at any cost, you will never be able to understand your opposition because it takes empathy to understand your opponent.

Although I am not a huge grammar person, I did spot one error, unless it was intended to be that way. In the beginning of paragraph or line 4, "if" should be "If". And you may have used the commas incorrectly in paragraph 2, but other than that I think you wrote it out nicely. Good job!

hmm so the first comma of paragraph 2 should be a period

OpenStudy (ghostgate):

That sounds correct, also for line or paragraph 1 I would remove the comma and place it here: "I often go to the seashore and collect rocks, because I love being outdoors." That way there is a bit of a pause, "I often go to the seashore and collect rocks", but that alone can be a plain ordinary sentence, but you include "because I love being outdoors." which if you removed "because" it would act as a sentence alone. So since you're combining both of these sentences you should add a comma in-between "rocks" and "because". I hope this helps. I don't know if this is correct or not, but that is what I would do.
