Has anyone seen my motivation?
When we get to the level showed in the image it means it's time to move on, isn't it?

To work in Science is not the wonderful thing a lot of people think it is. Low salaries, long non-paid extra hours and it gets worse when your superiors seem to not recognise or acknowledge your effort.
Tomorrow is a national holiday and I will spend 13h, alone, in a dark lab, hitting buttons every 5min, and I will do it again for 8h on Friday. I have done this once before, and it's not fun. And my boss thinks this is a normal thing to do. After all, I'm a scientist!

  1. Certainly not a fun way to spend a public holiday, specially when the boss doesn't even recognize the effort!

  2. True Sami. That's when you learn that it is time to change something.


Adorava saber das vossas voltas. Escrevam!
I would love to hear more about you. Feel free to comment!
