A REAL day in the life: software engineer

What do software engineers do? (Day to day on the job)

With all of the unrealistic "day in the life of a software engineer" videos popping up on YouTube (the ones where they're always playing ping pong, eating free food, and apparently doing little to no work), what do software engineers actually do on a daily basis?

I've worked in both big and small companies in Silicon Valley as a software engineer / web dev. I made a video breaking down my exact day to day, based on similarities I've seen in the different roles I've worked in.
