Academic work hours

It is pretty true that academics is not a Monday to Friday job. However, there is actually a nice compensation that can often happen. When I was at McGill I made some very good friends just by being in the lab at odd hours (especially late at night). There can be a sense of shared struggle that is an overlooked bonus. Of course, it'd have been even nicer if there was a late night office shop to take breaks in but you cannot have everything!
