look up any word, like sweetest day:
 
1.
The term used to describe the monotonous, rigorous, stab-your-eye-with-a-pencil military process of completing useless routine activities to be rewarded with a check mark on a piece of paper.
"Yeah! In-clearance took 2 days and I filled out the same form 8 times, but at least I got my check in the box for another year!"
