    Great!

    Some grammar purists argue that your use of "hopefully" is not correct. Check this site for the details.

    yes, correct. I would have used "poor" and "Poorly" instead of bad, due to recent connotations of the word "bad."

    In the vernacular, "bad" can have some weird implications.
