    Re: Wisdom teeth

    I had an impacted wisdom tooth on the bottom row removed in 2 stages last year. They wanted to preserve the nerves, so they knocked out half of it and let the rest work it's way up over time...then...

    Re: My JTE is ignoring meeee

    Re: 2016 JET Program Application

    Actually, it kind of is. Most people don't begin loan repayment until 6 months after graduation, but if you've started paying by the time you've applied to JET it can be very difficult to save for a...

    Re: "Upgrades" to CIR?

    I don't think it's nearly common enough to be gambling like that. It also depends on the coming and going of the people around you. I wouldn't apply to be an ALT unless you think you can be happy as...

    Last night I got really desperate and just doctored up some decent bread and dipped it into this really good arrabbiata sauce from Italy. It did the job.

    I'm guilty of just liking corn in general. But word on the meat. If you didn't nearly endanger an animal to make it, it needs more meat.

    They changed the article, pretty sure it didnt mention special drink time before, BOOO. That's fair, though.

    Well, I hope you haven't met all of them. These people are in contact with so many other people to draw information or further resources from. I don't see the harm in asking, you may be surprised.
