One of my best friends from undergrad days pinged me today that he is blessed with twins- one boy and one girl. He was just so happy, and my heart is full with the great news.

On the contrary, here i am on a sunday, unmarried, and my biggest worry is- have no clue of how to build a fuckin analysis model that is due tomorrow. Not sulking, but trying very hard not to.

I still dont know what happiness means... looking fwd to the comments to lighten my mood, so get crackin’

If you are in Chicago, let's pig out over Indian buffet. Guaranteed to make you feel better


Live your life per your timeline. And remember people’s life might seem perfect from outside but rarely is. Cliched as it sounds...Count your blessings. I know the feeling tho... sometimes you need to go into self-pity mode. You’ll be fine tho 😘


Comparison is the thief of happiness! Live your life and be assured things will happen per your timeline. Focus on your haves/have nots and not others. Keep working on your goals - make yourself better and closer each day to achieving those. About that analysis model that is due tomorrow get crackin’


Where is shaktiman ?! Foul language alert

You are definitely getting a lot more sleep than he will be over the next few months, whether or not you manage to crack that analysis model

Don’t find happiness in work. Go out make friends.

Hi everybody! 😊
I've been working as a Junior Analog Design Engineer for a year and half.

I’ll probably get reported for this but damn do some of you all need a life. All you I see everyday is people crapping on other people for where they were born. This is a definition of bullying. You all pick the most obscure topic and want to start a competition over it. Life’s too short to have arguments with strangers on the internet. It’s nauseating, and I’m putting it mildly.

Does getting married make loneliness go away?

Whenever I talk about being lonely or bored, family says it’s time for me to get married, that will solve everything. I don’t believe that. For context, I am a Indian M, 30.


Hope I can find some experiences here. I’m trying to get visitor visa for BIL. He is super introvert and has been coping with depression for years. He is 38 and currently not employed. I am worried he will not be able to answer questions by visa officer. Any tips or success stories from anyone in similar situations?

Anyone here with any insights on Lentra.AI" class="linkified" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" >Lentra.AI company ? It's a start up and from website I can see their product suite is quite nice.

TL:DR - Consultant goes ahead and cancels my visa when I rescheduled an appointment on my own because he was "angry" that I went ahead and did it on my own and will now ask for a refund. I would have changed my password the instant I got my slot if only I knew how needlessly malicious and vindictive this guy could be. Any advice would be much appreciated. Do I need to repay my DS-160 or recreate a new account or something else.
