      Yes, I do! Especially when the experiment I’m doing is really exciting and I’m dying to know the answer, it’s hard to wait days or even weeks until you get the answer. And then sometimes it turns out the experiment didn’t work and you have to do it all over again! But to be a scientist you have to learn to be patient… the good things in life come to those who wait!
