Aparna Mulberry- of European descent speaking Proper Malayalam.
Ranjini Haridas-homegirl, what’s your excuse now? and Ya’ll out there who use b.s. excuses on why you cant speak Malayalam. Like shyat, even I am feeling a bit insecure.
yo this makes me so fucking mad fuck this fucking white girl
Okay but if you read up on her, she actually lived in Kerala for most of her chlidhood. Like, yeah, if I lived in Kerala for a large part of my childhood and went back every year or two years, I probably would be speaking Malayalam like that, too. Because you’d have to, because that’s what mostly everyone around you is speaking on a daily basis. If she’d only visited a few times when she was older, and not actually grown up there, her accent might be different, she might not speak as well, etc. Or maybe she would, who knows. But wtf is the point of OP trying to shame Malayalees for not being able to speak their language
I really don’t gaf about this white girl like I don’t think she’s doing anything wrong (but I don’t know the rest of her life, so who knows) by just speaking Malayalam. But I think it’s annoying her message of “you really have to try and you can do it love your beautiful language.” But then it’s compounded by OP buying into that. Like, come on.
First of all, please don’t feel bad about yourself because a white person can speak the language better. Like, I don’t know your life, but maybe you didn’t live in Kerala as long as this girl did or something. Or maybe you did, but you still don’t speak as well as you would like. It’s okay.
But that’s where my kindness for OP stops bc come on, hdu say we have bs excuses for not being able to speak Malayalam well because you see a white girl doing it? lol. As I said before, there’s a reason she speaks so well. It’s not like she went there and picked it up in a second or something. Our excuses may not all be good but this video of this white girl speaking Malayalam proves nothing about us. Also it’s not like she doesn’t mix English words into her speaking. ugh
ugh all i have left to do to submit my irb thing is to like, read over the protocol narrative once more, then go through all the online parts of the app to make sure everything’s fine, then submit. AND THE PROSPECT OF ACTUALLY FINALLY SUBMITTING IT IS OVERWHELMING ME AND MAKING IT HARD TO COMPLETE IT RESEARCH IS DIFFICULT
I was watching Aziz Ansari’s ‘Buried Alive.’ Like, idk, when he/people say it like that they’re obviously being very casual and probably don’t hate kids in any really harmful way so it’s hard to explain why it makes me umcomfortable? But it just feels so gross to me to refer to a human being as a thing.
Also if anyone who hasnt seen Buried Alive is planning on watching it, I reccomend skipping a lot of the beginning (sorry on my phone right now so can’t give you the exact ‘what time to what time’ to skip). He makes an extended child molestation joke.
omg a friend and I have basically been trying to orchestrate this for ages since we graduated and moved back home… LOLOLOLL SAD. except her Asian parents are surprisingly okay with us/her drinking?? @_@ but yeah CAN I COME TO THIS SLEEPOVER SOMEDAY
my parents are home all the time tho lol. first need a house w no parents or parents who don’t care w us doing that in the house while they’re there lol. ~this plan cannot progress otherwise~
i feel less weird knowing that people older than me have actually tried to make this happen :P
and yes lol of course you’d be invited
we’ll listen to terrible pop punk and make fun of each other and eat lots of food and talk about things we’re angry about and yell at things together
