Mine is opening a client's website and our last meeting's notes and just sort of highlighting sentences as if I'm reading key points


I always try to make sure the databases we use are open in a tab or two.


All this becomes much easier if you have two monitors and angle one of them to be just out of the field of view of someone who walks into your office/cube/etc. Just leave relevant docs open on your main monitor and TLS/gchat/reddit on the other

I open outlook and appear to be reading an email.

9-5 Senioritis hard as shit. I'm starting to fantasize about bouncing at the end of May, but I don't know if I can afford it. Never been less productive or more restless.

I love my job and my coworkers, but it's time for a change.

I'm in the exact same spot, I started a countdown on my phone to when I'll give notice to try and keep me from quitting early (2 weeks notice, mid June)

Curious when others plan on quitting.

I'm going to be working remotely after I move to the states. Yesterday my boss told me that since they are planning to move our offices in the next two months anyway, I could start working from home basically whenever I wanted.

I'm working until the last possible minute, because $$$. I guess technically I gave notice in October when I asked for a LOR.

My job is actually perfect for being mentally checked out 90% of the time. I wait for other people to do their job and then have to very quickly make sure that their writing was punctuated properly and all words spelled correctly. So, I sit in front of a computer all day and maybe work for 30-45 min total. All day. I openly TLS, youtube, and whatever bc it doesn't matter. I also do a lot of reading at my desk. Right now I'm reading the biography of Red Cloud.

I already gave notice and am planning on leaving in August.

I am interested to know what people plan to set as their last day as well... Mid -July? Late July? Early August?

If you are leaving in like May and traveling for the summer, I don't want to know. Thanks ;)


I haven't quite made up my mind on this...between mid-July and early August.

Nothing to love here. I'd quit today if I could. Have to somehow hang in here till the end of July.

I've been pushing it earlier and earlier. I started off thinking first week of August, and now I'm at July 10th. I really can't push it up any further though- that would be too much lost income and, actually, probably too much free time. Still tempting though...

That doesn't sound like senioritis.

Compared to the rest of my UG career? It is, I promise.

ETA I'm taking all 100/200 level classes because I finished my requirements. Everyone else I know is finishing all their 300s/400s and I am not about that life.



Coast it in my friend. Enjoy the ride. I did a similar thing in UG--heavy workloads up to senior year, and my last semester I took 6 hours, 3 of which were a class I neither attended nor did the work for because it didn't affect my degree at all. Twas glorious.

My plan to take low level courses backfired. I find them too simple and the profs to repetitive that I cannot help but just be on TLS etc. Which when combined with low motivation is bad.

Put in my notice and out of here at the end of March. Job is both monotonous and stressful (because of the volume of work), and I now have this weird love-turned-to-scorn relationship with a coworker.

ETA: Our office has less than 15 people.
