i walked in to the lab late this morning. apparently tardiness in labs is not tolerable. sitting pretty for 8 hours and working for 1 hour is preferable over working for 1 hour and then going off to do more productive things such as reading journals and maybe even physical exercise for the rest of the day. my cells do not need me for 9 hours everyday. they only need me for 10 fucking minutes. i should not be reprimanded for working when i should and doing other things like fucking sorting out my life for the rest of the day. balls.
