I just finished instant noodle as my breakfast when my phone received two test messages. Why people want to me to do something in such a early morning, I was thinking. After picked the phone, I realized these are notifications from USCIS. There was finally updates on our I-485 applications since our EAD and AP were approved last October. I cannot wait and open my laptop immediately with both anxiety and fear. But any news is good news to me and is better than no news. Opened the case status website, I logged into my own account. It showed the cases for my wife and me are both approved. This opened the door for me to get back to the field of data science that I enjoyed so much and always want to go back. With the excitement, I am looking forward to receiving our green cards soon.
After a very long pending, my I-485 applications was finally approved yesterday. In order to record my long journey of my immigration to the states, I decided to start blogging with a series about my visa applications, immigration status extension and transfer, J-1 waiver, change of status, and permanent residency applications. In the meantime, I also decided to start another technical series about data science.
