The verdict was just. She was charged with exactly what she did. She murdered that man. I often think about how the people who thought she deserved to get charged with manslaughter would have felt if this was done to their son, husbands, or fathers. An innocent life was taken, regardless if it was intentional or a “mistake” 🙄.

Sad all around, but the verdict appeared just.

I don't think we may ever know, but at the same time what could have been a mistake took someone's life, and for that she should do some time alone.

Agree. My husband thinks that she should’ve gotten manslaughter not murder. I don’t know. Part of me thinks that it could’ve been a mistake but her behavior that night just doesn’t sit right.

I wish immigration was not an issue. Have been interviewing nonstop and had pretty good interviews at that. Lost so many cause of H1B. Many , am sure there were people better than me , so I lost those rounds. There is so much you can do with your career at US. Take risks with firms and roles, learn more, apply ambitiously, take a break, not settle down for the first role you get cause you are desperate to find a job within the grace period. I am not looking for pity but I wish..

Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
