Fuck. I almost just cried at my desk reading this. One thing I would add is that I don’t allow myself to be proud of what I’ve done. And I say this because I see it with you too. You don’t allow yourself to celebrate how far you’ve come before just moving onto the next bit. I see you at parties still working while everyone else is celebrating them…

Interesting! I never knew about ‘cultural cringe’, thanks for sharing :D
Does this tend to still be the case if the actors are Australian, or is this when Hollywood decides to use American actors for every ethnicity ever?
Completely agree with this. It’s frustrating, as it makes everything feel so public — even just a thank you to a comment. It puts me off from commenting more often.
The only other issue I have with Medium is their lack of styling options. It’s why I still bother to publish and maintain my own blog, so I have full control over how images behave, and what text looks like.
I absolutely agree and see the two options websites have with browsing and searching. However I feel like websites have a lot of work to do to recreate the browsing on their websites.
Clothes sites seem to do this really well. But the moment you want to find something new on Asda’s or Tesco’s website, their browsing…
This is the same for mix-raced people, when we don’t look like we’re not from one culture, but can’t speak the language of the other.
I’m half Portuguese, half British. Born and raised in Britain and can’t speak Portuguese. You nailed the struggle here.
