While having to stay at home can be a bore, it doesn’t really have to be that way. There’s plenty of things out there to do, you just need to look for them (with internet and a computer these days it’s very simple. If you don’t have it at home you can go to the nearest library). It can take time to find something you like, but hey, we (H4’s) have all the time in the world don’t we?  

I came across this website called Meetup ( and I thought I would share the info. It looks like a really cool place to connect with people who share the same interests. So, while you are forced to stay at home (as in not being allowed to work), you can use your free time to connect with other people (and you should!) and have fun. Staying at home getting depressed is really not a good idea. Getting a working visa or the Green card can take a very long time. Use you time wisely! Enjoy!
