Dog Tired Zoomers

September 25, 2023

It’s only just 10h on a Monday morning and I already feel the need to take Logan out for a long walk to clear my head after #meeting1 of the week.

(4) those who have something to say about every single topic, regardless of their level of expertise; it’s like they feel they have to say something…
