Hey ladies! What are your favorite go to basic t shirts? I was really liking the old navy luxe t shirts because of how soft and inexpensive they were, but they wrinkle so much. I don’t want a shirt that looks like I slept in after the first time I sit down, not that I have to steam before each wear. Bonus points for budget priced - I’m wfh with a 2 year old right now, so I want to feel/look decent but not be devastated if it ends up with baby slime on it.

Kamala Harris and Betsy DeVos agree; if the country really valued education, we would pay teachers like the professionals they are. If we don’t get over this babysitter/women’s job mentality, we will go into a critical tailspin of losing teachers. I’m sure you already know that very well, as indeed most teachers either have a second job, need one, or have considered quitting altogether, ￼but this opinion piece is trying to start a discussion to educate the general public. ￼￼￼https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/28/opinion/teacher-pay-covid.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage

I went on vacation w family and had a good time last week. Back home alone I feel in a funk again. Funkier than Cold Medina. Just wanted to share with someone.
Hi! I am on L1 visa and applied for i-131/765/485 early in the year as a dependent. Can I stay in the U.S. lawfully if I quit my job and lose L1 status before the approval of EAD/GC given I have a pending change of status application? I will soon talk to an immigration lawyer, just wondering if anyone has heard a similar case before.
