You're not alone. Posts abound about this. No one seems refreshed coming back. While I'm grateful for my job, COVID is not a good time to be dealing with the demands of a consultant.

Untimely question bc of omicron…but when you go out for someone’s birthday and get a table/bottle service — who picks up the tab? The group splits or the birthday person? Is it awkward if someone wanted to tag along but didn’t want to buy into the bottle service specifically?

I really like my mentor at work but I am getting a few strange vibes from him. He seems to remember everything I mention about my private life, when we do career catch ups he just wants to talk about what’s been happening with me life wise/ we never get onto anything serious, and he seems oddly preoccupied with my workout regime (I mentioned I go paddle boarding sometimes and he now asks me whether I have been paddle boarding routinely). I don’t know if it’s because he’s awkward, but it’s odd
