It’s looking like a busy week, and you’re ready to pull your hair out just thinking about it.

There are other things you could be doing instead of attending another boring event and meeting the same people again. Whatever the reason, you’d better hope there’s a Starbucks nearby so that you can load up on caffeine; you’re going to need it.
