Grammar Check: Using "will," "going to," and "might" to talk about the future

Remember:
You usually use going to for things you know will happen:
I'm going to go shopping at the mall.

You use will or will probably for things you think or hope will happen:
I will probably get married before I'm 30.

You use might for things you are not sure about:
I might go swimming this weekend.

You also use will at the time you decide something and for promises:
I'll meet you at 7:30.
