I was just wondering: How would you say some like : "I might do this" or "I may go to the store" I'm not big with parts of speech and things like that, so I don't know what the "might" part is called. Just wondering if anyone could help, thanks.

If you want to stress that it is conditional or hypothetical, I'd use "-us": Mi povus fari tion (...sed mi ne volas). On the other hand, for a plain but somewhat uncertain future, I'd say "eble ... -os": Eble mi faros tion.

I would think you would use the conditional -us ending but I'm only a Komencanto.

Yes, especially povus fits here well for added indecisiveness, if you ask me :)

Mi estas pigrulo, kaj pro mia pigreco kaj manko de ŝanĝemo, mi eble, sed ne citu min pri tio, faros tion deziratan.

Kondiĉe de mia pigreco, sateco, kaj monsituacio.

I might do this = I possibly would do this = Mi eble farus ĉi tion.
