Alexa, play "Boredom" by Buzzcocks

Today, I'm ignored and bored so much at my dream job that I've started bringing in my fanfiction to write when no one is around. Which is 80% of the day. I'm training to be a civil engineer. My experience writing fanfiction should take me really far in my chosen career. FML

Put some hot porn scenes in your engineering memos and reports and you'll soon be in the C-suite.

Those things are so boring, your smut will give your coworkers a reason to live.

It sounds like it is not actually your dream job...

I’m a civil engineer in the US. At least here when you don’t have a full workload and your direct manager/supervisor hasn’t given you enough to do, you are expected to go find work from other project managers to fill in the gaps. If you think they aren’t noticing that you aren’t doing anything, you are wrong. Even if you are salary, someone at the company sees your timesheet and will notice that only 20% of your time is on billable work.

It’s your career, you make it what you want it to be. Do you want to be the person who just sits there until someone else hands them something or do you want to be the person who takes charge of their career and is known to go out and help others around them?

You're able to write fan fiction in the office without getting caught? Kudos to you... you're getting paid to do what you'd do in your free time. It's better than nothing.
