You stand in front of a mirror and examine all your faults, mistakes and oddities. Do this until you are laughing at the guy you see in the mirror. I mean really laughing at him. Do this for two minutes, after a while it will happen almost instantly.

Hi;

Okay, I am listening. How did they start?

We have a teacher called "Tapasi Dey" in our school who teaches us bengali. She had been the incharge of our class last year.

I crack too many of those jokes in her class.

One day she was taking my reading test and told me too read

Now, I told, "Where shall I read from?"

She told, "Anywhere"

I started reading from such a point that made everyone laugh

BTW She thinks she is our teacher and she thinks we should not crack jokes with them

Then she told me something which translates into english somewhat like "Agnishom, don't loose your originality"

(She knows me nicely, and actually I used to be a frowning guy last year)

I was a little worried

Now, One day Aloka-San became very angry with me

(Heaven knows why) (she tells everything depends on her mood[and I just love her randomness])

Now, I called up Nky and asked what wrong with me and I told Nky what Tapashi Dey told me

Now, Nky said that T. Dey was correct

and I was more worried

Now there is a little more extension to this story

Now, AlokaSarkar is almost okay

So, I asked her a few days ago, "have I lost my originality?"

She said many things

but when she saw that I am serious and depressed about it she said, "Its nothing so. T.Dey has said so so that I dont degrade in my studies"

I said about Nky

She told not to think so much and that it will be okay

But, I belive this Nky is a wonderful person as well

You actually asked whether you are losing your originality? Did you phrase it exactly like that?

The phrase was a bengali phrase and I guess I am translating it correct

If you are worried about losing your originality then you are not yet zany enough. You should not worry about such things. You are an incredible young man. Do not worry about whether others can see that.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Hello Sarah;

Yes he is a funny guy is he not. He tells jokes, he does math, he is interested in girls, all that and he is only 14.

Well, I could probably go on more philosophically about that question, but I won't. In short, no, you are not too underage. It is great to be into math, as too many people aren't, and completely ditch it later in life. I might not be the best with jokes, but this is who you are; how can you be too young for this (even if your jokes are arguably more mature)? You are interested in girls. Well, I know **many** people who I went to school with (weren't exactly friends with though, as I never had that many friends), who were interested in girls years before you. One of my...ex-friends I guess you can say, was interested in girls ever since he was 7 or 8 (sorry, it was first grade, I can't remember if it was actually age 7 or 8). If you consider yourself an early bird for this, then what are they? So again, in short, no.

(I might have explained my answer a bit more, but you don't have to believe me when I say, I definitely did **not** go on very philosophically about it, I kept it rather simple...)

Oh yes! I almost forgot to mention, I'm happy you are doing better Sarah!

Since I was the one who put Agnishom on trial I have to mention that I started being interested several years before his age also.

I must not blame her. She hasn't done anything

Isn't it all my fault that I feel helpless sometimes?:(

Of course it is your fault. But do not worry that happens to everybody.
