    I looked the words up in an online dictionary.

    to unfold
    развёртывать/развернуть

    to drift (away)
    относить ветром

    bent,
    изогнутый

    twisted,
    кручёный

    wrung
    ? maybe выжал


    disappointing
    disappointed

    разочаровывать/разочаровать - to disappoint
    я разочаровался - I was disappointed
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.

    *for disappointed/ing, i really need the words. i know how to say to be disappointed already but i'm not sure about the two words i'm looking for.

    *about drift away, i guess, this concerns a boat or whatever (the wind thing). i'm looking for the figurative word.

    *then, bent, wrung, twisted, i'd love to find a verb that could do it in the three examples (i'm not yet at the point where my vocabulary in russian is almost as extended as in english).

    *when to fold is skladyvat', what is the opposite?

    anyway, thanks a lot and what dictionary are you using?

    disappointed - разочарованный
    disappointing - разочаровывающий

    *about drift away, i guess, this concerns a boat or whatever (the wind thing). i'm looking for the figurative word.
    расходиться (с кем-либо, чем-либо) - about interests, opinions, etc

    *when to fold is skladyvat', what is the opposite?
    раскладывать

    for drift away could you also use уплавить, уплыть?
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    Drift away так же говорят про засыпающих или заснувших людей.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Я думал, что люди обычно говорят "drift off" про заснувших людей, но может быть, использование этого выражения зависит или от страны, или от того, кто говорит.

    Уплавить - no such word
    Уплыть - да, только наверно лучше "унести".
