In those 6 months, I received Canadian PR. Now I am in Vancouver. I think Vancouver is a better place to be than Santa Clara( i was there). But I think so cal is still the best place on the planet. I lived in orange county and would go back to so cal if i ever recieve a green card.
1. What was the reason for leaving US? I'm guessing you must be on EB1/EB2 track to the Green Card?
2. How was the process like for the Canadian PR? Had you already secured a job in Canada before leaving US and then applied for the PR from India (Express-entry program)?
I don't endlessly do pro and cons. I just try things out.
“For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn't conspire against you, but it doesn't go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. "Someday" is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it's important to you and you want to do it "eventually," just do it and correct course along the way.”
