Get out as much as possible. Visit different neighborhoods, eat at new restaurants, etc., so that you know some cool places to visit when you finally meet people. Hell, you might meet a cool group during your solo adventure

Help please. I am meant to start with a company pretty soon, they told me that my background check cleared and I see on the online USCIS tracker that my change of employer petition was approved.

Can I put in my two weeks already and not be concerned about anything going wrong? I ask because I haven’t received the physical copy of the approval of the COE petition and the law firm in their FAQ mentioned that in some cases the online approval was made erroneously. Anyone with direct experience?
