Week: 140 (felt near death)

That was for a high-yield bond. It was grueling.

I used to think anyone who said they were billing 24 hours in a day was obviously lying.

Then I did last week. Fuck it. If I'm up for 50 hours straight in a conference room dealing with this bullshit, I'm absolutely billing the time I spend taking a shit.

Is it unethical to bill 24 hours a day? I went to a double-all nighter negotiation where we were all in one conference room for three days, two nights. No one left except to use the bathroom, pick up Seamless orders and grab coffee from a nearby coffee shop. Smelled terrible. But did not pause my timer for those small 2 to 10 minute breaks.

300 hours for a month. Full disclosure it was a big month (i.e. 31 days not 28).
