So do I, but honestly I kind of find it exhausting at times

True! I think it's for the best tbh. I spend so much time doing it as work that I don't feel the need to give my attention to social media during my personal time

It's way easier than explaining what we actually do. It's kind of a brilliant answer.

Please save the tobacco hate. I smoke a cigar at least once a day. I grew up around the cigar (and rum) industry, so I genuinely appreciate it. It came out during a conversation with one of the partners in my practice group. He and I go to the same Cigar Lounge when I am not ordering from Cigars International. The Rum industry also came up (my ancestors were actual Rum Runners during prohibition.)

Nevertheless, he suggested that we meet up at our lounge for cigars. Thoughts?

I'm feeling a lot of anger towards my manager (now he's acting normal but there were moments where he was condescending/dismissive/mocked my and others work/arrogant/said stuff was "wrong" constantly/belittling the difficulty of tasks etc. in the past project).
Maybe it is "standard chewing out" but it bothered me a lot. So much that I find myself still getting all fired up inside thinking about it...
