Also, please recommend any immigration attorney who could do it for less.

Which BDO offices had layoffs?
For consulting managers/project leaders who managed teams and case projects, how did you find transition to a people manager role in industry? What were the biggest surprises (cont’d)
Social media has made me go from not wanting kids to definitely not wanting kids. So. Many. Baby. Posts. Everywhere. Non-stop. People complain that when you have kids people only see you as a “mom” or “dad” and you lose your own identify, but I swear they do this to themselves. Also the other day I accidentally scrolled upon an instagram story of a baby and their blown out diaper. Just WHY is that necessary!? I don’t get it..
