Is it worth submitting a service request if I see the date in the case status times has past the date of my notice for Advanced Parole?

Wondering if submitting this will speed this along?

I recently posted about moving to Antigua and Barbuda to live and work remotely on the digital nomad visa. Several people expressed interest in how I'm doing it, so I created an instagram. I'm documenting the steps of emigrating including pet import licenses, enrolling kids in an international school, cooking local food, and assimilating to life in the Caribbean. For those who are interested, check me out at: https://www.instagram.com/webelongbythesea/

With everything going on in the world (COVID / BLM / Yemen / Human Rights Issues) I've started feeling really guilty lately. I came to the UK when I was a child for a better life and I've been incredibly lucky to have the life I have (mortgage free / stable job etc.) at such a young age but I have this pit in my stomach where I always feel guilty that doesn't seem to go away. I give to charity, volunteer and try to be a good person. Does anyone else feel the same, how do you deal with it?

When I was hired as an associate, I was informed that associates are paid within a certain range based on their graduation class year. I negotiated my salary, but was told the firm could not pay a higher amount because of the range associated with my class year. Fast forward one year, a new associate is hired (same class year as me) and I find out that said person, who is of the opposite gender, is paid approximately $50k more then me. Any advice on how to handle?
