I absolutely hate being typecasted

Nope, not a food post. I'm not even sure this qualifies as a real post. I just wanted somewhere to vent my frustrations? Nah, not really frustrated, I guess they're just annoyances. As an Asian kid, growing up, I've always been stereotyped as 'good at math' and 'liking rice.' Yeah, both of those things are true, but whatever. Just because something is true doesn't mean I want math problems and rice shoved in my face all the time. I've found the same thing happens even now. In everything I do, somehow I always become the guy who should do things on a computer or something scripting related. Case in point, I applied for a web company at the beginning of the year as an operations intern, and somehow they offered me a job as a web developer. Not that I don't love web development, but at least have the courtesy to respect the fact that that's not what I wanted. I mean, I don't mind doing the job, in fact, I applied to other places for that very position. It's just a bit tiring.

As for why I haven't been posting lately, this week has been an absolute killer. Most none of you probably care, but I've been hammered between problem sets, applying for graduate school, senior design, and dealing with other peoples' nonsense on top of that. So if I've been a jerk lately, well... you probably had it coming I'm sorry. Laters.

Oh the picture... I don't like making posts without pictures. Yes I do in fact use a toothbrush that says 'white person toothpaste.' There's absolutely nothing lost in translation.
