Emergency visa only. E-visas not allowed- check and advise accordingly. Sorry for the loss of your friends dad.

And obligatory PSA - other folks who may have their US citizenship, please go apply for your OCI immediately

Agree.. heard too many stories of not getting ofi and then failing to get to India. My aunt has been a citizen for over 25 years and still doesn't have a OCI 😳

We did the e visa for our daughter who is an American citizen. We need to do the OCI too, but hear it’s a painful process. So mustering the courage to do it.

Thanks PwC1. Please bite the bullet and do it. Future you will thank you

I didn't care initially but now it's just getting obnoxious. I suspect she's projecting since she wants to have a second kid herself and is experiencing challenges but enough is enough lady! How do I go about addressing it with her?

We have ~$400k HHI. Monthly expenses are ~$6k (1 child). We live in Austin. We’re seriously considering getting a 900k to 1M house which we wouldn’t be considering if the market in Austin wasn’t so crazy but we’re really big on proximity to culture/resources and need to stay in the area (can’t move to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio , etc.). We also just honestly feel like the suburbs out here are so very bland. Thoughts on us doing this? Are we crazy? Is this understandable given where we live?

Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping.

What did you do to make it more efficient? Also I can't seem to figure my flange fitting. I follow the guidelines and the suggested one is more uncomfortable than a large size. Help.

I feel very lost. I just started as an associate at a big firm this year and have a one year old son. Learning how to be a mom and an associate has been extremely tough and I have felt burnt out on multiple occasions this year. Prior to having a child, I was a very determined individual and was used to saying yes to almost everything because I wanted to accomplish those things. Nowadays I feel like I don’t care about my job as much and being away from him gets more and more difficult.

I'm in the best relationship I've been in. We had a chat about life goals and long term plans. We align on everything except children. He definitely wants them and I am undecided. I had a childhood that makes me terrified of being a mother. To be clear I get on with children, have taught in primary school and volunteered in orphanages. I am very caring and take great care of a dog. I'm just afraid of the role of motherhood and that my needs will disappear. Anyone have advice?
