Hey, i'm a senior in high school interested in a design college. I live in california and have checked out all of the major designs schools out here, so far the only one i like is the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but it's just too close to home for me. I'm interested in interior design, and so far my first choice school is RISD, however, i seriously doubt i have the grades to get in. I have not been able to find on the school's website any information about the GPA required for admittance, but my GPA is roughly a 3.3, and my sat score was 1740 (660 CR, 490 M, 590 W) and i am planning on retaking it in october, this time studying like CRAZY. Also, i am taking privilege summer courses at AAU for Interior Design as well as Fashion Journalism. I am also extremely interested in writing and English Lit, however i prefer writing as an on-the-side type of thing for me. I took art this past year in school and according to my classmates was, "one of the best,". I don't have any of my work available on the web, but i do have examples of my writing on my blog for my fashion journalism class (lovethreads.wordpress.com).
Anyways, i am really just curious on my chances at getting into RISD, and also any other suggestions of good colleges i should look into for design and/or writing, journalism, english etc.1 AnswerHigher Education (University +)1 decade ago
I have liked this guy in my class for quite a while, and just recently I found out he knows. Before I knew that he knew, I was fine around him and we would talk and flirt occasionally. But now that I know he knows I just get really nervous and tense up. Like he gives me hugs sometimes, and he's showed a little interest, such as asking my friend if i was there after school when i had left, and little things like that, but I also know he is currently " talking" with another girl, so i don't really know what to do. We were friends more last year because we had classes together, and we don't have any together this year, which also makes it hard because I'm not seeing him as often.
What are some conversation starters I could use when he gives me hugs that don't sound too awkward, and how can i tell if he is really interested in me? How in general can i just get over my nervousness?
thank you! i know i sort of put a lot of questions out there lol.19 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago

2.How did those colonies change life in France? (how was it changed economically, politically, etc, by its American empire?)
3. How did life change for the conquered peoples (socially, politically, culturally, etc) in each of the colonies held by France?

ok so pretty much i have to write a paper about how i would treat my 'people' if i were a conqueror....which is all well and fine but i need examples from history and i cant seem to find any to support my arguments, which are these: Socially, i would allow my people freedom so that they don't feel to caged, and they wont be prone to revolting. religiously they can preactice what ever religion they want as long as they stay respectful ( i was thinking of using Akbar as an example here). And Politicaly i would put my own leaders in control and take the political power away from the leaders that i had conquored.
I hope this is'nt to hard to understand, and i'm sorry for any mispellings...i'm just sort of freeking out because its do tomorrow, and usuailly essays+history are my strong points...and i'm not used to having to ask for help!. lol6 AnswersHistory1 decade ago
