Here is what she said

How do I act seemingly busy while I’m at the office?

Working as an office admin for MNC. I send a couple of emails in the morning, maybe some in the afternoon too but I always seem to have excess time on my hands.

Sitting close to the managers who ALWAYS seems so busy on their computers is so stressful cause I feel I need to look busy too.

What sites can I have open on my screen so I look like I’m doing some rando research. Wanna look like I’m super hard at work but not too try-hard. Not amber heard level actress.

Unpopular opinion: I miss the lock downs during peak covid because I the office environment is super stressing me out.

Netizen’s comments

I’ve had this problem before.

I used the free time to pick up Excel skills, because nobody would question you if you had an Excel spreadsheet open on your screen. And even if it’s not work related, you can just say you are learning Excel skills and no one can really fault you for it because extra skills that are potentially useful for work doesn’t hurt.

Try to work on an Excel project that interests and/or benefits you personally, like calculate your monthly expenses, or which credit card rewards system gives you the greatest benefit, which carpark in town is the cheapest to park at, project how many years are needed to save enough cash + CPF for the deposit and fees required for your next dream home, etc.

At more advanced levels you can also pick up VBA and do stuff like HTML web scraping for data, program a sudoku solver, batch rename/move files in bulk, or automate simple tasks like generating a report or mass sending emails from a template.
