Not tell anyone it was my birthday

Yeah, maybe it's just not a good idea to bring it up

I always just bring brownies, share them with my immediate team in a meeting and put the leftovers in the kitchen with a note "for everyone"

Thanks! That's a good idea!

Budget?

I definitely don't want to break the bank here, but just show a little appreciation for everyone that's helped me

I just started working at another law firm (big law). The partner I work for trusted me with a closing for his biggest client which went smoothly. However, my colleagues told me that a senior female associate voiced her frustration openly at the firm that I was put in charge (she had worked for this client in the past and had never met him). She is now constantly criticizing my work and puts the partner in cc. I would be grateful for any advice on how to navigate this unfortunate situation. Tx!

Prove me wrong. Crypto is dead, from countless scandals (one just added to FBI Top 10), to platforms collapsing/stealing coins, top cryptohedge funds liquidizing, mass layoffs - one of the original use cases is that coins could stabilize us in these types of economic environments. People will continue to trade, but actual adoption of people using coins for purchasing power (or even other utilities) just won’t happen.
