CD1 - The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a great one!! For non-fiction, I would say Born a Crime by Trevor Noah is the best book I've read in a long time and I'm always inspired by anything from Haruki Murakami

So my husband and I decided to go back to our original plan and starting to try for a baby next month. My daughter will be 18 months old and it’s been a struggle with work and her in general with covid and no daycare or outside help. I’m down to part time hours already with the intention of her hopefully being able to go to daycare in the summer or fall. I really want to complete my family but worry about not having help with two kids. Plus I dk how long it could take to get pregnant this time

I’ve really been having the urge to get out of consulting lately.

I’m pregnant and need my mom to be with me sooner. Contd.

Need advice: baby is 8 months. We started her in daycare at 6 months. Liked the daycare but concerned because not all caregivers were vaccinated. Liked daycare overall because we wanted to not manage anyone, socialization, etc. We got more nervous with Covid as daycare did not mandate after FDA approval and other mandates came out. We found a nanny share and informed the daycare we are pulling her out - the director calls me and says the remaining teachers have received the 1st dose. Cont.

Goodwin just formalized it’s Recharge Policy. For attorneys who hit hours, they can take a vacation on the firm the next year: $5,000 for juniors, $7,500 for mids and $10,000 for seniors (starting at 5th years). I’ve always felt like Goodwin does a very good job encouraging vacations (most people I know take 3 to 4 weeks including a 2 week vacation). At my last firm, vacations were rare. I’m thrilled with this program, particularly since it helps address burnout.
