Because it's hard to look like a hip millenial without a Macbook. I don't like not having control of any laptop, so I bring my T460s with me everywhere. I only use my work laptops when mandatory.

I like it personally, has worked well for me and is lighter than other options. I hook it up to a larger monitor for dual screens and like the setup.

OP, because some people have to hate on most anything. There is no perfect laptop, airline, hotel chain, energy source or gender. Satisfied people don't post nearly as much as people that like to complain.

Did anyone use a client for a letter of recommendation? Curious what types of things they wrote about for the constructive feedback question since they don’t provide you with a formal performance review like a supervisor would? I’m considering asking a client for a recommendation, but her feedback was typically targeted to specific deliverables so feeling unsure if she would be able to answer that question well...

How do you deal with draining family members? My wonderful mother takes on a LOT to keep the family life running back home (across the country with matters that can't really be helped from afar). She's stressed and every time we chat it's just an endless swell of negativity and problems - we all have our own issues and just having to listen can drain me for the week. She blows through boundaries because she needs to vent and I'm not sure how to protect my energy and still be supportive. Ideas?
