    Default is this correct please?

    I am writing an essay in spanish and I want to include the following three sentences:-"I know I dont like it, but the more I try to reason why, the more I find that I cant"
    "Yo se que no me gustala, pero mas que tratar de averiguar por que, mas me parece que no puedo" Is this anyway right?
    Also "University sucks"- Universidad apesta?.I would like help please

    A little bit more of the essay, such as a couple of sentences preceding the ones you quote, would perhaps come in handy, but see if any of my attempts below work for you:

    "I know I don't like it, but the more I try to reason why, the more I find that I can't.":

    "(Yo sé/S&#233 que no (es de mi agrado/me agrada/me gusta), pero mientras más trato de (dar con/encontrar) (el motivo/el porqué/la razón/una justificación), más me doy cuenta de que no (puedo/puedo hacerlo)."

    I figure "University sucks" can be translated in quite a number of ways depending on the Spanish register you'd like to use, but here're some I can think of right now:

    "La universidad (apesta/es aburrida/es aburridísima/es una mierda/es un bodrio/es un plomo)."

    Cheers!
