Since turning 25 my family is ON me to think about marriage. I’ve always struggled with the concept of marriage and truly always just dated for fun, with no end goal in mind. I am south asian and have somehow always dated non-south Asian men, but my culture is really important to me. I feel I have this idea that marriage is going to take away my independence and it’s never really appealed to me. How did you shift your perspective, if so? I am feeling pressured to start dating more seriously.
Captain your career they said, you pick your specialty they said, the culture is great they said. 🤦🏽♂️
Curious how other companies have been approaching bringing back their culture during COVID/RTO? Very biased but OW’s done an amazing job of reemphasizing our culture by blasting money at events (in-person!) and trying to do more co-location for teaming. Feels like the pre-pandemic days again
Recently, as you probably know, Dr. Seuss's estate chose to stop printing a few of his older books that had offensive racial stereotypes. There was huge backlash from white people, including teachers here, screaming "cancel culture!" Now we have a white guy who murdered eight Asians in custody, unharmed; while the police officer who killed an African American man for allegedly trying to pass a bad check is about to go on trial. Full disclosure: I'm white. But I'm still enraged by all this. You?
Besides FANG what other tech companies would you apply to? The actual job function isn't as important to me. I just want a change in work culture.

South Asian ladies - how do you handle the marriage conversations with your parents? Every time I visit my parents, this is all they talk about. It got to a point where I stopped coming home. I know avoiding them isn’t the healthiest way to handle it. For context, I’m 34 and been living on my own since college. I’m born and raised in the US, and don’t find guys in my culture attractive. My parents aren’t being open minded of inter-racial dating / marriage. I’m starting to feel hopeless 😞
