How did everything turn out for you?

Seems good.

She might become emotional at times, but I should keep up and be myself. Isn't it?

Yes, be yourself. She must learn to deal with what you are, just like everybody else. Just be open to changing your ways as soon as you discover something better.

She must learn to deal with what you are

At the same time, I must also learn to deal with how she is

Very true. If you can not then avoiding her is the best way. But you will figure it out.

Kindly stop telling this.

There is no way I want to 'avoid her'.

She can feel depressed sometimes, that isn't her fault.

Yes, but it is mostly text and that can be compressed.

Yoda is a character from George Lucas' Star Wars saga. He is a member of a sect that is a combination of Bushido ( as understood by Samurai), Hindu and Buddhist philosophies. As best as George understands them. They call themselves Jedi and Yoda is the greatest of them all.

Is he the greatest because of his philosophy?

Exactly, he is the wisest. Because Lucas is very militaristic in his thinking he also is the strongest.

Mind you, this has nothing to do with my choice of avatar. I only changed it to Yoda because anonimnystefy wanted it that way.

Hi;

I rarely read modern literature. The last thing I read that was not math related was that book you suggested. The only reason was because I know little about your country in modern times.
