Roman Leaf Tablets ?

First off, I don't know if this is in the right forum. Feel free to move it if it's not.

Well, a while ago I was assigned by my Latin teacher a project. My project consists of making different roman writing materials from scratch.

The Project Outline Reads:

Each student will be assigned to reaseaching 3 different writing materials in use by the Romans. This reseach will culminate in the actual construction of a sample ...

Introduction

Hello, I found this wonderful learning resource the other day while looking around for an answer key to Wheelock.
I'm learning Latin just for my own interest and to learn the proper pronunciation of my first name (Marcus). :) There aren't too many Latin learners here in Korea so I'm forced to study by my self. Luckily there are great resources like TextKit to help me.
I'm ...

me odi et volo mori

:cry: iam modo mentiri, attamen moriturum si praedico quaedam sit mortua.
nil queo agere neque ulli latina usui. vita enim optima simplex. hominum more maiora petimus multiplicem in eam efficiendam felices statum, dum omnia quae desideravimus ibi fuit sed non animadvertimus priusquam sero. latinam didicimus. cui fuit haec? paulum mi prodest.

Naturalism and Theism.

Provided that you beleive in materialism and naturalism everything that will happen to me and you and all that we think and do is inevitable.
All events in nature can be traced back eventually, I guess, to the Big-Bang, and all of our thougts are side-effects from nonrational, nonpurposive, unintentional laws of physics and chemistry.

"Everybody knows..."

"Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everbody knows the war is over
Everbody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
Ther poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows"


"Everybody Knows" Leonard Cohen, Canadian at large

I find these melancholic lyrics to be truly uplifitng. :)

Learning Latin

I am teaching myself Latin from Wheelock. My question is, has anyone taken the SAT II on Latin, or even modern Hebrew or Spanish? And also is Wheelock the best book for self-instruction? I have heard certain parts require a tutor.
