7) I didn't immigrate to this country for this!!!!

Here, we see Exhibit A: Asian Parents dumping the immigrant story all over Exhibit B: The Ungrateful Child so that this child may know the true extent to which she is ungrateful.

11) I guess it's okay if you want to be Ang Lee... But just know that Ang Lee couldn't even be Ang Lee until he was forty something! Are you going to wait until you're 40 to start having a career??

Just when I think they've accepted my field of study......... Nope, why did I even think that was a possibility.

Thanks for the encouragement, parents. I'll be sure to write all about it...IN THERAPY.

Look, I know you guys wanted me to be a Doctor, Lawyer, or Dentist, but it's just never going to happen.

...At Harvard.

...And I'm number one in the class. Whatever.
