A night at the lab…

General February 2nd, 2007

… is usually not a very fun thing to do. 🙁 Not only do you not get enough things done, you probably won’t get enough rest. So, why do we stay overnight in the labs? Or for that matter, why do we even bother to stay up late to finish work?

First, there is a deadline. When the deadline is due or near, we would have to start rushing work, so that we don’t end up having to bribe 摹慬 (zhou1 gong1) for more time away from his chess games (a.k.a. losing sleep) at a later date.

Secondly, we might want to lessen the guilt of not working hard enough. Heh heh… I am always guilty of that. 😛 I could sometimes end up not working for 4 days out of 5 in the lab. So, we either end up burning our weekends or we add extra hours into the remaining 1 day by burning more hours.

Thirdly… it’s to keep someone else company. 😛
