(a) I can't find anything wrong with it but I feel like something is wrong.

(b) I think it needs to be reworded with something like: Rudolph enjoys eating curries with lots of spices from the Indian delicatessen

(c) Do you really need to include on the phone?

(d) Did she decided to change her career while the mediation retreat was going on or is she going to pursue acting during the mediation retreat? I think it should be worded something like: During the meditation retreat, Bridget decided to leaver her career as an attorney and pursue acting.

I'm leaning towards (a) but not sure.
