    For tax purposes, I'll have you know that I'm unemployed, not a student.

    Tbh its kind of hard to tell you lot apart.
    It becomes really annoying when you have to repeatedly tell the same person many times...

    I've had one person who wouldn't accept that I was Chinese because I didn't have the "soft Chinese accent"

    Yeah I do get people trying to share common interest with me via our ethnicity, but I sometimes conform and say "yes", if it means I made a new friend.:teeth:
    But that's the assumption that makes me want to :backstab:them .

    There was a new girl in class the first person she came to was me " are you Spanish"? If I didn't look Spanish then what? I ain't Spanish like her and we still got common interests. Rant.

    Lol l know you have two eyes but I can only comment on the one I can see the other eye might just be a normal average eye.

    Why Sri Lanka in particular? It is rich in its cultural, historical and linguistic heritage.
