“Stop being a simp!” I was scrolling on Twitter at night, as one does, when I saw this tweet. This unfamiliar adjective stumped me. “What is a simp?” I did what anyone my age does when confronted with slang that they don’t understand — I Googled it. The Cambridge Dictionary told me “simp” had two definitions. One, “someone who tries too hard to do what another person wants, especially in a romantic relationship” and two, “someone who likes and admires someone, especially a famous person, very much.”

Like every other person who lives a good chunk of their life on the Internet, I’ve fallen into the Clubhouse spiral. (VS plug: We’re on CH, too!). I’ve hopped from room to room, explored book clubs and science-fiction conspiracy theories, listened to startups pitch to VCs, lurked in rooms promising gossip about the rich and famous. But the most cathartic one I’ve been a part of was one about toxic work cultures.

Hey hey hey! I am Aastha, my pronouns are she/they, and I work as a Social Media Trainee! And I am fat. So over the last year, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and I’m sure you can guess that it’s been bittersweet. But the introspective process has asked me to admit many truths that I’ve been running from — to come out to myself in more ways than one.

Hello, dear readers! Sometimes, when we’re brainstorming ideas for this newsletter, it often leads to conversations within the Vitamin Stree team. Points are argued, articles are cited, and there is a gradual discovery of a way of looking at the world which is different. So, this time, we decided to bring those conversations to you, unfiltered! Here’s just a chat that Nidhi Mathur who’s the Senior Manager for Business Development and I had. We were talking about our favourite literary heroines.

“Dude, I’m 🤏 this close to a burn out.” That one sentence is a brief recap of the last two years of my virtual college “life” and work “life” —  minus the life in it, of course. Hi, I'm Mansi, and as someone who just graduated college, I am here to tell you that the kids are NOT okay.
