(ethni¢) c0mmunicati0n breakd0wn.

today is one of those days when i really, really, really wish that i could ¢ommunicate in mandarin.

just earlier, one prof walked up and just started speaking. it was hard to find the most tactful moment to tell him that no, i couldn't understand him.


sometimes it is a burden, being born and raised as an american.

on the plus side, the prof still wants to talk math, at some point. i also find it surprising, because he attended my talk yesterday.

if i had gone to my own talk and listened, i wonder if i (the audience member) would bother talking to me (the speaker). \:
