Today's workload has consisted of 50% meetings and 50% meeting-related friction. What a fucking waste of time.

The amount of friction I encounter every-single-week just getting paid is truly mind-boggling. I'm a bog-standard 38 hour, salaried employee, no overtime, no expenses, no holidays. Here I am, wasting a significant chunk of those 38 filling out a timesheet, in excel, every fucking fortnight.

Today I went to my actual workplace for the first time in about 6 weeks. I did not enjoy the experience. It's also pretty much the first time I've left the house in the last 3 weeks. It's strange out there.
