1. You such an important point, Oscar! As stimulating and absorbing as research is (even the all-nighters can be enjoyable!), we cannot forget to nurture other facets of ourselves. And to rest! It helps us to enjoy science even more when our lives are multi-dimensional. We are more efficient and creative, and in the end also more fulfilled. Thank you for the reminder.

  2. Thanks a lot for sharing this important “lab-life” experience. There is always something enriching to take away from free time. It offers us also new ideas and perspectives on our work.
    Well done for writing about it and I hope you will inspire others to find a good balance between their work and life.

  3. Oscar, I loved how you were able to take the advice with you to the HZB because it is so important to have a good work-life balance. I think it keeps us motivated when we give ourselves a mental break here and there. Thanks for your honesty!

  4. Oscar! I really enjoyed reading your blog post because I could easily relate to it. Usually we get engrossed in the lab work to a point that we forget to enjoy our free time, but this blog is a nice reminder. 😊

  5. Your text could be good advice for future summer students to enjoy the “full experience”. I really like the title of your blog post!
