Oh man... my productivity at work has officially dropped from 50% to 20% now that I started looking forward to the admit weekend and looking at the new student webpage & forums.

Is it just me or anybody else overwhelmed by all this new information? I think trying to find housing and proper student loans are my biggest concerns. I gotta get a student visa and all sorts of fun stuff.

thank goodness work is slow lately!

anybody wanna share an apt in ithaca for 07 -08?

im in the same boat. I think my productivity has slipped into the negatives. I may owe my company money at this point.

[quote="johnnyx9"]So Rhyme how do you get on this forum during the day when you're at work?[/quote]


As for today on, I can't come to the forum except at night.
The whole company (sure, the board members excluded), around 180 people don't have internet access anymore!!!! d@mn it! (and I bet I have something to do with it!, at least I have that pleasure)

Prodoctivity also 0% (but probably turning better in a while I'm sure!)

Why? That's what I prefer to do, when I am in no mood for working - I go to a meeting :)

My productivity was at -10% yesterday. I skipped work altogether (took a sick ...ehem...day).

Why -10% instead of 0%? I got called twice for some advice and the advice I gave must have caused some trouble, I'm sure (since I was thinking blank when giving the advice).

In all honesty the above is not true, but the actual story was quite lame so I embellished it.

Cheers. L.

Meetings are worse. I can't check gmatclub, I can't browse digg.com, I can't get up and go get coffee. Why would I want to tie myself into a room full of people for 2 hours on a conversation I have no interest in?

As of today I have some people reporting to me, which sucks. They sit right by me and they'll be able to see that I really just browse message boards all day. Before today I just reported to a manager who sits on the other side of the building so it didn't matter. Damn these additional responsibilities...

You invested 150K in one stock. You are brave.
