This sentence is driving me on the wall This doesn't mean anything. It should be 'This sentence is driving me UP the wall'. Remember that you have to get idioms exactly right. Use them properly or not at all. Reflects feelings in self, or a feeling self, or in self-feelings, or in feelings self. This is complete nonsense. Anyone is gonna explain it to me? This is ungrammatical and is not proper English. It should be 'Is anyone going to explain it to me?'. The sentence 'Is anyone going to explain it to me?' is grammatically correct, but very rude in the context of this forum. If you expect someone to help you, you should ask 'Can anyone explain it to me?. A please or the thank you would be nice too, but 'Can anyone explain it to me?' is the minimum of politeness. Three pieces of advice: 1. Brush up on your basic ordinary English. Don't use sloppy and incorrect language, especially if you want help from people. 2. Only use idioms if you are sure that they are correct. Half -remembered idioms mean nothing - they are worse than no idioms at all. They make your English look worse, not better. 3. Give up reading books containing nonsense like "Reflects feelings in self, or a feeling self, or in self-feelings, or in feelings self."
