I see some of you so frequently posting this forum, when do you actually work?

Basically the title. When do you actually work? I mean some of you guys are in PE, HF and IB and should be VERY busy but at the same time, I see some usernames posting here so frequently who work in these functions and they have been at it for YEARS! How do you do it?

I post almost exclusively while on phone calls. I've been posting on forums since i was 10 or 11 years old so it's a hard to kill habit.

IB ebbs and flows. Some weeks I'll be fucking slammed, shit to do all day, leaving work at 2am, other weeks (like this one), things will be pretty light. Getting in at 930, leaving at 730pm. Nature of the job

All the time.

Counting emails, I literally work, off and on, from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed M-F.

Posting something on this site is just another message to fire off.

You have no idea how frustrating "waiting on data" from index partners is.

I am always working. This is just a few easy mins to kill here and there. Sometimes I do my best thinking while sort of zoning out reading the BS on here.

I did a sophomore summer at a boutique where I barely had anything to do all day so I was on this website a lot and was making a decent amount of posts and comments. Now I'm back at school so it's less so, but I'm still after that King Kong status.

Have been on gardening leave for the past 3mos, so plenty of time to kill. That said, have just restarted, so will likely be only posting seriously on weekends again.

Used to post a lot when I worked at a garbage firm that didn't have much going on. Now I'm exclusively on the weekends.
