Carrie, we generally are not fans of text speech around here.  Also, remember that the word "I" is always capitalized.  There are no exceptions. 


Read this Q&A about passive voice:


The word how in your example sentence is misused.  Replace it with the word that.  This example may illustrate what I mean.


Explaining how I made the peanut butter sandwich:  First, I got two pieces of bread, a jar of my favorite peanut butter, and a knife.  I opened the peanut butter jar.  Then I put the knife in ....  (and on and on).


Explaining that I made the peanut butter sandwich:  I made the peanut butter sandwich.
