Writing Exercise #5: Read the below paragraph and correct any run-on sentences.

Since it was a pretty day, I decided to go to the park and once I got there I went for a walk, smiling at everyone there and after I began to get tired, I took a short rest on a park bench. When I was finished resting, I walked back to my car and went home and then I decided to get on the internet and look up some stuff. I went on Facebook and Yahoo and my mail and YouTube and Pinterest and Wattpad.
