Today is my 40th birthday and I'm doing it big this year. Took the day off to relax and catch up on reading, cooking and drawing. 😃 No emails, no slack, no meetings.

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes 💕 To keep me accountable, here's a picture of what I cooked today. I roasted a chicken and it came out amazing! This is something so simple yet I haven't cooked this dish in years. Either I was working too late at the office (pre Covid) or I ate out, or didn't plan ahead. I have to say it was quite therapeutic to focus on creating this one thing without having to multitask a million other things. On to my next to do for the day: a visual journaling class - drawing my feelings 😳 And I'll probably end with a bubble bath 🙂

Do you add people on Linkedin immediately after you have connected with someone in the firm (via zoom meetings ofcourse) to give intros etc.... Does it look unprofessional? I meant you working for that firm and you are connecting with people internally to get a project etc.
