Why Does a Three-Day Work-Week Feel Soooooo Long?

Happy Friday & a cheerful 7/7/17 to you all!  We have no idea why a short work-week feels so long; we probably weren't busy enough or something like that.  So attack one or more of these and maybe the day will fly by for you until happy hour or however you like to cap your day.

Media, survey research & technology cabal Morning Consult is in search mode for an Associate Communications Director to help promote the company brand & break into new markets – your 2+ years’ experience working in communications or PR should include work booking talent on radio/TV.
