I see no point in taking part in the wedding ceremony of a friend who I am sure I will never see thereafter. I regret saying yes when she invited me. It was an impulse that forced me.
Considering the amount of time that it will take me to earn thirty thousand yen and what you can do with that quantity of time, to join the wedding celebration is to give away about one-fourth of a book. That is, with the time, I can read one-fourth of a book that I need to before I set down to write a dissertation. And I do want to pick reading over her.
This way of thinking might have made some of you sick. But, when to live is to study, anything could be more important than trying to be liked by others.
