I entered the software field last year.

My parents showed me the profile of a girl.
She has studied cs and was a topper. She's even published a research paper on blockchains.

She's in a good company with a nice package. (double of mine)

My doubt is .. if they accept our proposal (which is very doubtful) and we move forward , will she not like me coz I'm not as intelligent as her and not earning as much as her ? Is there something I can do to improve myself to at least match her level ?

Looking for some car advice. I have a 08 Nissan Pathfinder. KBB Trade in: ~2700 KBB Private sell: ~4900. No payment on that car. I want a wrangler so badly, I know they’re not practical but they make me happy to drive and I’m at a point in life where I’m living for myself and doing what I can to make myself as happy as possible. Would it be stupid to try and sell my pathfinder and buy a wrangler? I know I should probably drive my pathfinder into the ground and revisit when it’s no longer running

This may be an odd question but what do you consider a risk free asset? Technically the only true risk free asset is a government issued bond or a 100% hedged asset which is a risk free rate but what else? I've seen some interesting analogies that make certain farmland and timberland assets sound extremely close to risk free when the time horizon is greater then say 2 years.
