I turned on “open to work” (but only casually browsing) on LinkedIn last night because I’ve had a god-awful week and am legitimately considering my options. Except I was immediately bombarded by calls and emails from recruiters. My office phone was blowing up this morning in the middle of trying to get a filing out the door… I’ve already turned it back off. Lesson learned LMAO

This might sound weird but I used to turn on “open to work” when I was at my last firm (where I was miserable) and it was a nice reminder that I’m more valuable of an employee (or potential employee) than I realize.

You're not alone. My coworker would relish for days on a random job offer, makes one feel wanted.

Can't your firm see it turned on?

There’s an option to hide it from people who work at your firm.

Do y’all turn in lesson plans?

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
