Hey friends,

Hope you had a great week.

My birthday was last week, and I turned 30! Unfortunately because of the lockdown here in the UK started on the same day, we couldn't go out to celebrate. Instead, we order takeaway, had a glass of red wine (or two) and enjoyed some Icelandic chocolate. It was a wonderful day.

It feels a bit like I'm entering a more serious stage of adulthood now.

I just finished reading, Mindf*ck: Inside Cambridge Analytica's Plot to Break the World. Intriguing story on how Facebook data was used to get Trump in power and Brexit to happen. Recommended read.

Thank you for reading, have a great week and stay positive!
