- I am not a native. I cannot see like a native, let alone try to think and act like one. Maybe if I would have spent a few years or decades among the community I could have pulled this off, but in just a short three months this was not going to happen It was not like I could just go out and experience a day like a native would.
- Language was a problem. Again, if I would have had more time or language skills I might have been able to figure out how to write a native avatar, but the only luck I had was writing an aesthetic overlay of local phrasing.
