This is my little furball Sheero. He always used to chase me with his Little feat, wagging his little tail all around the house. Whenever I used to be busy on my laptop with work, he just used to sit on my lap and sleep like a peaceful baby. He was such a good puppy. He is now resting with angles up in the heaven and I miss him a lot ❤️.

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?

During salary discussion, Accenture HR openly told me to expect 50-60 pc of the variable amount. Appreciate the honesty but I mean, then why the hell, boost the CTC like that, what's the freaking point. Provide 60 pc of it then. Atleast the employee feels that he/she has earned the full amount, or close to it. Agree?

Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too.
