It’s a tough transition, almost 7 years with the same person turns common phrases such as “I don’t have plans for the weekend”, into the team phrase of “WE don’t have plans for the weekend” and then suddenly having to relearn that instead of “We” it is once again “I” in conversation. It’s an equally […]
