Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "I"

The meaning of "I" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does The more I think about it mean?
A: The reason, 'the more' can be added is because it creates both depth and explanation. I could simply say, "I think about something," but when I say, "the more I think about something," it means that I can't get what I'm thinking about out of my mind. Almost like it's bothering me.
Q: What does Sorry I am late kkk mean?
A: "kkk" is Korean, it's like "jaja" in Spanish or "haha" in English.
Q: What does But not often enough I'm afraid. mean?
A: あぁ、そう言う意味。申し訳ありません。
”時々運動する。残念ながら、碌に運動しません。”
あれの意味"I'm afraid" は”残念ながら.” Also = "I'm sorry to say, but..." "Unfortunately" "Regrettably." "I regret to say..."
"遺憾ながら”も多分正解です。
”遺憾ながら、運動は小まめな事じゃないです。(Sorry if my wording is wrong.)

Q: What does I've heard all I care to from you mean?
A: It's kind of like "I've had enough," or "I don't want to hear any more from you," "Or no discussion." It's a bit more formal, kind of the tone that a mother would use with her children if they've done something very wrong.
Q: What does I'm sure I'll know enough but you never know. mean?
A: "I'm sure I'll know enough" => The speaker believes he/she will know whatever she needs to know ahead of time.

"you never know" => Idiomatic English. It basically means that nothing is certain and that it's possible to be surprised at the outcome of something. For example:

I always thought they were a the happiest couple, but last year they went through a bitter divorce and she claimed she was miserable with him for years. You never know I suppose.

Example sentences using "I"

It basically is used to emphasize how unlikely something is.
Q: Please show me example sentences with ​‎ I hate the feeling it’s all a waste.
A: WORD : hate
MEANING : the emotion of intense dislike; a feeling of dislike so strong that it demands action
Q: Please show me example sentences with “though “ I often listen people say use this word but I still confuse. .
A: 'though' is usually not used to start sentences; it is used as a word to join two clauses. It has a similar use to despite/in spite of

I still do not know the answer, though I have tried the test many times.

Though and even though can be used interchangeably in these scenarios. Using though to start a sentence is more informal.

I speak (a) good English
He speak (a) little English
I speak (a) little English

are they natural either with or without "a"?
A: While both are usually seen with ‘a,’ it can also be used without it. Here:

•Speak little English- not much, barely/hardly
—>”He speaks little English.”
=He can barely speak English.
Then..
•Speak a little English- to a small extent, some, a bit
—>”He speaks a little English.”

The most common one I’ve seen is with ‘a,’ but it really depends on the difference I’ve mentioned above.
