Money is decent no doubt but I get so stressed up, weight gain and high blood pressure due to irregular sleep and diet.

I get ping non stop at odd hours.

In such a depressing life, why should I even be having lunch with those who caused my misery and anxiety?

Why am I even here in this industry?

Because who else would want to date me into my 30s and the moment men sees me as a lawyer, they get turned off. Plus I am not no longer in my prime in terms of looks. Work is all I have to show off and earn my living.

Would I have done anything differently?
Yes, I should have been kinder to others in my early days. Words spread and bad things spread about me even faster than speed of light and stay even longer about how much a bitch I am.
Pray tell me you arenít trolling

Oh pls. Assuming you're not trolling. 6pqe means ur like 29 this year. Not too old thanks to no National Slavery for females. Still young and attractive enough. Of cos don't compare yourself with 20 year old ahlian influencers la.

U need to get out of the office, date or hook up a bit. Break up the monotony. Most lawyers marry relatively later anyway. And divorce rate also higher so doesn't really matter when you get married. Biological clock is overrated. Leave it to the foreigners to replace our population.

As for staying in shape, that one is on you. Nobody can help u if you want to let yourself go, esp as a single. Hit the gym

No, its just the case that delisted unis are "delisted" only to protect NUS law graduates from an oversupply of law grads in the domestic market. Internationally, those unis carry far more recognition. The fact that they can compete in a free market environment and still secure a place at the MC over some 2:2 from NUS shows that NUS is overrated.
