LOL I have been on this project since March and just got extended again right when I think they're going to keep rolling me off...I agree it's nice not having a huge workload, but it is frustrating coming in everyday and actively having to find things to do.

I have been. I just didn't know if I was the only one that constantly had nothing to do...doesn't feel normal since everyone else is so busy

Do actively look for work. I was new to the firm and ran put of work asked around and they promptly tolled me off that same day. I was on the bench for 3 months then found a better role. Good luck keeping busy.

Apply for new jobs, buzzfeed.

Dear Partners, Fellow fishes, I have a productivity question. I'm unable to plan tasks for the week, and I seem to have a LONG list of to-dos for Mondays. I am overly ambitious on Mondays and unable to plan out tasks till Friday. Everything's seem to be urgent and done on Monday. Planner is always busy on Monday and EMPTY rest of the week. Inevitably I finish only 20% and rest spillover. How do you approach planning? And not feel like everything needs to be done on Monday.
