Look into the mirror. Do it everyday. You’ll see reflections you’ve never seen before. Some say it’s like waking up on Christmas morning, while others simply detest it.
I foolishly thought I’ve fully undergone acculturation at my workplace. Somehow I still feel singled out at times. My boss asked me once what language do I prefer speaking in. I told them Thai as I wanted to improve my conversational skills. In spite of that, I still feel like I’m being jeered at, “English speaking yellow kid.”
No, I am not releasing a box office hit movie showcasing my singing prowess and dancing abilities, I wish. Today’s marks the end of my year-long research, whether I pass or not, that will be a different case. My presentation is up in an hour and a half. I’m the first actually, out of the tens of other linguistics postgrad students. God please make me feel warm all over.
