Writing exercise

Original –

One day, my friend Peggy asked me if I would like to go out with them for a party. Firstly, I said NO to Peggy because I prefer to at home. However, when Peggy said some handsome guys would go to the party and it’s possible to know one to have a romantic meeting. I changed my mind.

I went to the party independently, which had begun for a while. I found someone who I was familiar to, so came to them to talk with each other. Later, I saw Peggy came to me and around her, there was a man I didn’t know before. Peggy introduced him to me, he was friend of Peggy’s brother. His name is Jack.
Jack had a good look, which gave me a good impression when I met him firstly. But after talking and further observation, I felt down that he was vain and liked to having knock offs, and I cannot bear his pride to boast of his fake watch consistently. His way to ask me out was impolite, too.

I did mantra to myself; “calm down, do not angry, it’s in the public” In the end, I drank up my beverage and took this opportunity to finish this conversation.
I needed to find something to pick me up.

One day, my friend Peggy asked me if I would like to go out with them to a party. In the beginning, I passed, because I’d like to stay at home. However, when Peggy said some handsome guys were going/would be going to the party and it’s possible to meet a romantic guy to go on a date with. So I changed my mind.

I went to the party by myself, which had begun a while ago. I found someone who I was familiar with, so I walked over to them to talk. Later, I saw Peggy coming to me with a man I didn’t know. Peggy introduced him to me, he was a friend of Peggy’s brother. His name is Jack.
Jack was good looking, which gave me a good impression when I first met him. But after talking and getting to know him, I felt disappointed that he was vain and liked having knock offs, and I cannot bear his pride to boast about his fake watch constantly. The way he asked me out was impolite, too.

I said a mantra to myself; “calm down, do not be angry, it’s in public” In the end, I drank up my beverage and took this opportunity to finish this conversation.
I needed to find something to pick me up.
