    Best answer: You're worried because colleges might consider your extracurricular activities, and you want to present the picture of a "well rounded and experienced" individual. You need to become involved in just a couple of things in order to complete the picture, and you need them to be activities which look good to colleges. Consider a club at school. There is probably a club devoted to an activity you are interested in, so look into what's available. (If you don't find one you like, you might consider starting one. The counselor can tell you how.) Volunteer work also is impressive, so investigate organizations in your area which need volunteers. Could you help "walk the dogs" at the animal shelter? Could you "run errands" in a hospital? You can find opportunities to volunteer by searching the internet with the word "volunteer." You don't have to give up your life of TV and leisure. The club activity and volunteer work don't need to be every day, so you should still have plenty of time to do the things you like and are comfortable with. And when the time comes to apply for college, you'll have something to list under "outside activities," and that's really all you need.

  • Which word is appropriate (may or must) in this policy. "Only department issued uniforms may / must be worn."?

    Best answer: Only department-issued uniforms MAY be worn. or Department-issued uniforms MUST be worn. See how the second sentence doesn't use 'only'. This alters the verb. I'll rephrase: You MAY wear ONLY department-issued uniforms OR You MUST wear department-issued uniforms. All these sentences mean the same.... show more

    or
    Department-issued uniforms MUST be worn.

    I'll rephrase:
    You MAY wear ONLY department-issued uniforms
    OR
    You MUST wear department-issued uniforms.

    All these sentences mean the same. Nobody is allowed to wear anything except department-issued uniforms.

  • Explain 2 consequences of the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan (8 marks)?

    Best answer: About 200,000 civilians died in two Japanese cities.

    Best answer: About 200,000 civilians died in two Japanese cities. Possibly 1 million members of armed forces, mostly American, did not die as a result of the Japanese surrender shortly after that second bomb. It was considered by American high command that the war would have raged on, with the loss of around 1 million lives, if those two bombs had not forced the surrender.

    Naturally, with such devastating blows delivered by two single weapons, and the radiation effects lasting for many years causing many other premature deaths, there are many differing opinions about the rightness of that decision.

    And if you are going to ask us to do your homework for you, note that none of us cares at all about how many marks the answer is worth to you.

  • Is "You said what?" grammatically correct?

    For example, if someone says something to you and you didn't hear them, is it appropriate to ask "You said what?". I say this sometimes when I am talking to friends, but I feel like it is not correct.

  • How to say it correctly "My English is modest."?

    Best answer: I think you mean something more like decent, moderate, or fair (as in not great but not awful). Modest tends to be used more for people and their attitude about themselves (not arrogant, not a braggart). It can be used to mean a small amount as well, though, so you aren't totally wrong in saying that your... show more
    Best answer: I think you mean something more like decent, moderate, or fair (as in not great but not awful). Modest tends to be used more for people and their attitude about themselves (not arrogant, not a braggart). It can be used to mean a small amount as well, though, so you aren't totally wrong in saying that your English is modest. It is just that we think of language ability in terms of bad, fair, good rather than small, modest/medium, large. Ability (what you mean by "your English", your ability to communicate in English) is not a number-based thing. It is a quality-based thing. Thus words meaning good, bad, and in-between tend to be used.

    My dad struggled with English, I don’t know the name of his disability/ies but he didn’t make it through high school. My older brother was fine but when he got into 10th or 11th grade his grade in reading was starting to go down and chances are he partially has it. I’m in 8th grade. I’ve always been an avid reader/writer. When I was 6 I would write my own books out of copy paper and staple them together. Last week, I just received the information I won a local essay contest. These last two days in school, when I was in reading, I’ve been struggling. Stuff that I’ve done and understood has just not then there in my head. I could not understand an essay whatsoever and it was stressful and embarrassing because I’m looked upon as one of the smarter kids in class. Then yesterday, it took me 1 class period for a simple quiz answer. I had kept writing answers then crossing them out. I ended up just giving up and writing random stuff. Nothings clouding my mind, no boy or girl drama. I hope this isn’t permanent. Does anyone know what’s happening to me?
