  1. Hi, Dima, The first step I'd recommend would be too google "how to write an application letter university" and read several of the pages that give advise about it. Then (or, perhaps, also before) I would write down (or record - you can "dictate" them to your phone or computer) all those ideas you have about your letter in the messy form they come. Then you can try to sort them, to find "the right" ideas and some logical order. Etc. How much time do you have to write it? I see that it's stressful, but you can break it into many small steps and systematically achieve the final goal. Do you have someone you can trust to check it for you? Someone with good spelling and grammar? BTW, what do you want to study? Good look!

    Stress? Anxiety?

    Sorry for not replying sooner. I'm glad to know you're holding on! I'm doing fine, thanks for asking. Good luck and take care!
  3. Hi, Jj, welcome! Sorry for my late reply. I have some questions to get a better picture of the problem. I wonder about what precisely is the problem of his daughter and how much it affects her behaviour. Apart from saying what you quoted, what does she want from her father and how does she behave? Does she insist that you two break up? Is she mean to you? Or is she able to be at least relatively decent during family gatherings? And how much is her approval important and / or even friendship for you and for him? Or you mostly want her decent behaviour on the inevitable occasions when you meet? Take care!
  4. Wow, that sounds great! I'm so glad to see you've reached this kind of freedom. I hope it lasts and you 'use it' well.

    Hi and welcome back, @Dima! How are you doing?
  7. The test has been available for public in at least a few countries. (Around two weeks where I live, even longer where I'm from.) So I checked for the US: "Antibody tests for COVID-19 are available through healthcare providers and laboratories. Check with your healthcare provider to see if they offer antibody tests and whether you should get one." https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/testing/serology-overview.html https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/lab/serology-testing.html However, be sure you understand that a negative test result doesn't say much... https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-covid-19-antibody-tests-can-and-cannot-tell-us/ https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/19/us/coronavirus-antibody-tests.html

  9. Very nice pictures (in the video)! But the song is sometimes a bit weird: "dark satanic mills"??
  10. And this is how he "defended" it : I've also found this song :

    Interesting! Good luck!

    2nd language

    Wow!!! I imagine it has to be very hard! How did you choose this language in particular? (Do you know someone from the Philippines or want to visit...? )
  13. Welcome back, Dave!
  14. It has never been safe, in the first place ;). But I know what you mean. I'd say: When there'll be a good treatment, sorry. But many of us can influence the risk we're taking. Unfortunately, we cannot avoid others, like deniers or morons, to behave irresponsibly and infect us despite all the precautions we take. BTW, here's a shocking example of a moron in this regard (there's a short video with a brief intro of the "announcer")
