An average day would be about 4 hours dealing with code. The majority of remaining time is spent on email/phone/here. The amount of personal phone calls I get during work hours is annoying, mostly due to the wife and retired in-laws who seem to think I do nothing but play around on computers all day.
You sure are doing sth. wrong. They claim on their website:

That sounds incredibly cool. I'll tell my boss about this, we need this software now!

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I used to look forward to the "between project" or even late UAT time when there was no pressure. I was even promised 20% of my time would be devotable to learning, research etc. Lying bastards, 11 years I've bee on this contract and there has always been 1 or more projects waiting.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
