Con: My bed is more comfortable than the subway seat. True story.
Pro: Ahhhh, peace and quiet. Just me and the pipette. And it's nice and sunny here. And I brought delicious soup for lunch.
Con: No one to eat lunch with. Can't eat at desk since desk is located in lab. Ate lunch while making a todo list to juggle the various experiments I want to do this week.
Pro: Wow, looks like I'll have lots to do this week. Great! I like being busy. And look at how much I'll have accomplished by Friday!
Con: Wait, this whole plan depends on Simple Experiment Gamma working out. Better go check on that...
Pro: Never have to wait to use equipment.
Con: It's that much quicker to find out that Simple Experiment Gamma didn't work. Crap.
Pro: Awesome labmate who helps me troubleshoot Gamma, and will be coming in tomorrow as well and will do a task for me so I don't need to come in.
Con: Awesome labmate also tells a story about student they knew who could never get Gamma, and Gamma-like things, and really anything at all to work, and who ended up switching fields
Pro: Well, I still have a few things I can try re: Gamma.
Con: But I'm fairly certain all of this could have waited until Monday.
tl,dr: I went in to the lab on saturday and my shit didn't work, so I came home and wrote a whiny blog post about it.
