Dear PI, …

Dear PI as homework this summer vacation period Ill do some experiments on wine drinking, sleeping extra hours, and skin tanning at some remote beach. We can discuss results in a month. Best, your beloved postdoc.

Yesterday I found a tweet with the following text: “My PI decided that during my vacation period I should do some assigned ‘homework’ to make better use of my time. Currently I’m a postdoc at MIT. How should I respond to this kind of behavior from my PI?”

An I was thinking that when I was a PhD student I always felt like that. I mean, I took holidays anyway, but I didn’t disconnect, and I was consumed by guilty. Now thinks are different and just draw this comic stripe and tweet this words I case you need to read them: take your vacation and disconnect!

We will take some vacation from social media to prepare all the materials for the fall season. We will keep our Patreons updated with all the upcoming comics and other projects. If you are not a Patreon yet, join the community and have premium access to all my content 🙂
