I need an opinion. I've been considering changing my H-1B to F-1. Reason being that my current job is taking an immense toll on my health. I don't think taking a leave of absence would help since I now fundamentally just don't agree with the career and feel hopeless. My exit opportunities are very limited because it'd likely be a job of the same nature as the one I have. I'd be hard, but I'm willing to go back to school to study something else and try a different career. Is this doable?

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.
