The difference between QVIRE and POSSE

Is there any notable difference between these verbs? I believe that I use them both well but I would like to know if there is anything of which I should be aware.

And how did Queo etc. come about?

What are you currently reading?

Ancient or modern. Either in the original language or translated

I'm five books into Herodotus. Translation unfortunately, seeing as I've only studied Greek for 2 weeks :)

Your school classes.

Well it's that time of year again and summer is over (for me at least). I just had my first day of school (I'm in 11th grade now), which overall was pretty good. It's kind of a relief to get back to a schedule (yeah, I'm odd) rather than just lazing around the house. I like all of my teachers except for the PE teacher who seems a little dim-witted and talks like Boomhower off ...

Translation help: 2 words and 1 phrase

1. English: Lethe (River of the Greek Underworld)
Latin Dictionary: Lethe -es

I want to know if the extension (-es) is needed if i am just going to use the word as a title.

Suggestions for a Beginner

I've decided to study Greek.

I've also decided to take 6 or 7 college courses and learn as much as I can of about 10 other languages when I have the time/energy to do it. Luckily I'm not working right now :?

Ok....so it isn't as urgent as I made it seem in the topic, but I got your attention, NO?? I was wondering if any of you (especially those of you in America) if you know any programs, places, universities, colleges, benefactors, etc.... that help to fund college educations. I'm just looking for a scholarship that might pay my way for school due to a useless talent (namely, Latin skill). LoL....any ideas ppl?? Thanks...
