Speak English like 80% of the day so i think in English 100% of the time until someone asks this specific question, then i start questioning my subconscious's racism

I'm not quite bilingual but can speak French to a high level (English is my native language), and I can think in French, especially when doing French work/speaking with others.

Yeah but it just feels strange, even if im speaking punjabi i still think in English. I mainly just use punjabi to swear at my other punjabi mates so i guess that part of me isn't used to thinking hard
