Just heard it was a badge of honor to be an anorexic female lawyer? Also, heard that women have anorexic groups? Is this true?

Yes there are groups for anorexic people. They are toxic places where people help each other harm and kill themselves.

No it is not a badge of honor to starve yourself. If you are considering that, please seek out a therapist. If you merely heard about it from someone you know, encourage that person to find a therapist and try not to sensationalize people who desperately need mental health help.


All kinds of weird and unhealthy behaviors are a thing, unfortunately.

Please post this in the women lawyer bowl this is really sad to hear of and curious if any of the women there left such groups or are openly part of them

There is a movement called Pro-Ana that used to be active on Facebook that was pro anorexia and encourage self starvation. Many of those groups were banned for self harm. There are scattered forums and communities that still persist tho mainly on Pinterest and other social media sites.

There are people who consider it a badge of honor to bill 3k hours per year. The practice doesn’t lend itself to the well adjusted.

How much hike can Virtusa provide for 90 days notice period

I have cleared all rounds and shared the documents, HR is saying for 90 Days NP and no offer in hand we can provide maximum of 30% hike as per company policy. (If I bring another offer than they’ll revise it and also add joining bonus)

Also variable component is 9% as per company policy (which is too much )
And I’ve seen other offers of Virtusa having 5% variable

Please suggest how to proceed with this situation.

Thanks in advance

गम है......
तेरे चले जाने का,
तुमको ना पाने का,
अकेला हो जाने का,

अफसोस है......
गम से ना उभर पाने का,
इस गम अपने अंदर दबाने का,
वक्त रहते सच ना देख पाने का,

पर सकून है.....
तेरे खुश हो जाने का,
धन दौलत का ख्वाब पाने का,
मेरी तरह गमों में ना बह जाने का,

उम्मीद है........
अब travel वाले अरमानों का गला नहीं घोटते होगे,
Pretty dress को लेने से पहले प्राइस price tag नहीं देखते होगे,
Latest iPhone सबको दिखा के खूब फेंकते होगे,
Luxary staycations पे अच्छी धूप सेकते होगे,

आशा करता हूं......

Hi! I’m a first-year associate working at a large regional firm. I attended a well-ranked, but regional law school and my grades weren’t stellar. School was never very motivating for me, and I put way more effort into internships and networking than my studies during law school. Luckily, I love to network and landed an awesome job at a big firm. Eventually, I’m hoping to work in-house. My question is this, will my grades always follow me? I’ve heard that with time and experience, not so much.
