So what will you do today?

How many times has someone asked you “what do you do all day?” or “what’s your day like?” or “tell me about your day?”. 

Most PhD students, postdocs, and academic faculty spend hours at the bench doing research, recording, and analyzing results that will either confirm or reject a hypothesis. Additional hours are spent lecturing or teaching labs. One of my colleagues told me that he liked to take one day at a time, but that recently they had started ganging up on him.
