My partner knows that I don't talk about work when I'm outside of school. I'll mention when I'm tired, mentally drained, or had a demanding day, but I never go into specifics (nor does he ask any questions). Over the years, I've gotten more and more protective of my personal time (meaning, I don't like to dwell on work when I'm at home). On the other hand, my partner talks about his job quite often (he's a RN). He says it's therapeutic for him. Am I in the minority? Do YOU talk about work when you're with your partner, family, or friends?
