Balancing home and work life
Video clip: Marta finds her work enjoyable and exciting, but it means it can fill up all her time.
Tell me what you feel about your work life balance?
Right now I think it's not very good, my work life balance. But I have to say that I'm enjoying my work, though it causes issues at home. My husband plays golf because he knows that most weekends I will want to work, but on the other hand I think he appreciates the fact that my work is really interesting and very exciting. I think scientific research is something that you live with, and my brain just doesn't stop, especially if I have a hard problem to solve. So yes, it's very exciting, it's very enjoyable but, it fills up my time.
