- Lie in pretty much whenever I wanted
- Working from home pretty much whenever I felt like it
- Sitting around all day in my pyjamas with my laptop semi-watching Jeremy Kyle and Neighbours whilst my simulations were running
- Being able to go into town midweek when not many people about
- Posting endlessly on PGF about lots of rubbish :-x
Oh Lord. I wish I hadn't read that - it makes me realise nothing has changed.
I don't get to work until 10 (so I can sleep until 9 if I want - thats a lie in for me).
It's Friday afternoon, I'm working from home (I have that flexability) and I'm still in my PJs.
I can go to town if I want - but don't due to still being in PJs
I still post on PGF about rubbish.
At least I get paid to do this! (Just want to add I don't work in academia).
Wow you had an easy deal during your PhD! I'm in at least 9-6 every weekday, and have to go in both days this weekend and next :( I can't wait til this is over, a normal job would feel like a holiday!
I thought, if I leave I will miss wearing my own clothes rather than a uniform... um...and being able to access journals... can't think of much else!
