Adriana Salerno has made an interesting post on the PhD + Epsilon blog. She talks about how complicated summer is for math professors. Her to-do list for this summer consists of “submit at least one of two papers based on stuff that is pretty much finished (the writing takes a while, though), think more about a couple of new projects, read some papers, finish a grant application, and prepare for a conference talk later on and my classes in the Fall (which are both new and challenging).” However, she feels guilty doing leisure activities that do not relate to work.

Have you experienced similar feelings during the summer?
