• Best Way to Review Second Language Through Casual Reading?

    I've been planning to relearn some of my forgotten Spanish by reading Marquez and Neruda. I'd love advice on how I should read in order to remember and also comprehend the most. For Neruda, the poems will be side by side. I always go line by line, Spanish then English. For Marquez, though, I'm wondering if I should read one of his books... mostrar más

For Neruda, the poems will be side by side. I always go line by line, Spanish then English. For Marquez, though, I'm wondering if I should read one of his books all the way through in one language and then read it in the other. Or should I read one chapter in one language and then the same chapter in the other language and move on?

  • Can I demand an evaluation that I never received?

I know that self-injury warrants an automatic PDQ which is why I lied about it every time I was asked. I was never hospitalized for it, nor was I ever diagnosed with a mental disorder or medicated.

    When I went to MEPS to enlist in the Army, the doctor saw scars on my arm from self-inflicted burns. I know that self-injury warrants an automatic PDQ which is why I lied about it every time I was asked. I was never hospitalized for it, nor was I ever diagnosed with a mental disorder or medicated. By the time I was at MEPS it had been nearly three years since I had harmed myself. I was told that I would need an evaluation from Mental Health and they would decide whether or not I was stable enough for enlistment. My recruiter told me he would contact me when my evaluation was scheduled. I waited for weeks and he finally called and told me that they had just decided not to look into it and terminated my enlistment processing. Does it matter that they didn't deliver what they said I would get and can I go back and demand the evaluation since the truth never came out and they have no proof that I deserved to be disqualified?

  • What song was playing at the beginning of Degrassi: Breakaway when Fiona's on the roof?

    Ok so I think it starts with "I guess I'll confide..." and I honestly can't remember anymore, but it was pretty and sad and I love it and I need it. =P
