That doesn't mean I can't be awesome here - but I'm tired of being appointed to scholarships there by all competent institutions here in Brazil (after being subjected to exams, tests, and examinations), only to be shot down by someone I don't know, and who I doubt understand linguistics. I regret not searching for positions elsewhere because I was appointed to said scholarships, and they made it clear I shouldn't try my luck anywhere else in the meantime... as I was close to getting it and they didn't want to waste money offering a scholarship to someone who wouldn't take it.
Still, I'm doing what I can, such as teaching in our best institutions, and making the best of my education. One day, I hope I can tell the bureaucrats of their ministry of education they can shove their shinkansens up their arses
