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/
I’m waiting on my h1b transfer. If I got rfe, I really want to use the waiting time to visit my family (have more than enough pto left with my current employer). Anyone know if it’s possible to use my old I797 to get VISA stamp? Then putting notice after I’m back.

Hi all- I got my H1b visa stamping appointment finally for December 2021 (can’t wait to go back home after 3 years !). I am about to receive a new job offer. I was wondering if I can still keep my visa stamping appointment if I take up the new offer and get my H1b transferred? I really want to travel back home in December , it’s been rough 3 years.
Normally pay my credit card off in full each month but find myself with a 10k balance (mix of medical, a/c repair, other unexpected events). I have 15k in savings, but I'm uncomfortable using most of it until closer to bonus time (wife stays home and I have 2 kids). Is this the right approach? Paying interest doesn't make sense either. Helpful advice only please

Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
What do you all think of sites that generate legal docs (free or paid)? Do you think they’re going to replace us lawyers? Are they even legal?? Isn’t it practicing law without license, or establishing attorney-client relationship?
PwC's Time and Expense processes and technology (both GFS and Deltek - I've seen both sides) are utter shit. That is all.

Should I make the move from ATL to NYC? 24 and I’ve always had a dream of living there in my 20s. I’m analyst with 1 YOE and think I could get support for the transfer itself. My hesitation stems from HCOL… I don’t have any debt and have a substantial cushion in savings (lived at home the past year) but the idea of spending ~2k rent is intimidating. I will spend ~$1.2k in atl for rent. My income in MCOL is $65k. Should I bite the bullet or wait 1-2yrs for a salary increase before going to HCOL?
