It Seemed That I Was Busy Doing Something Close to Nothing, But Different Than The Day Before

Depending on your love of “mixing it up” without getting too deviant, working in an office can be a great situation for you. As Prince described it in “Raspberry Beret,” “It seemed that I was busy doing something close to nothing, but different than the day before.”

This is the exact nature of sitting in your cubicle, repeating basic tasks like checking emails, printing “things” (that are probably just a boarding pass to use up your paltry vacation time), making your umpteenth cup of K-cup coffee and attending a meeting ostensibly about nothing. In this way, you are daily living out the lyrics to one of Prince’s most iconic songs–so at least you’re honoring someone’s legacy, even if it’s not your own.
