help with homework checking

Hi there. I'm studying latin on my own, and would like if some of you could gently help me with my homework.
I just want to know if I have got anything wrong. Recommendations are welcome.

hi everyone!

I am way out of school, but love to keep learning! This is my newest addition to the curriculum. I am self employed and unfortunately not too busy yet!

Lexicon with Diagammai

Someone, in a different thread, mentioned that they had a (mental?) lexicon of Homer with Digammas. Is there a print one? Or any good list of what words had digammas where?

nukta poneontos

Today I was too sleepy(due to a series of late night works) but too busy to take a nap and my head was about to blow up. So I took three cups of coffee from the vending machine and put them in my mug. I got two such shots of coffee today, and frequent dose of caffeine. Now the effect of the coffee's going out. And it's two in the morning. I'm going home. Just ...
