In lab in the wee hours

Now is 1.15am Aussie time. And here I am still in this lab, doing my work - running a SDS-PAGE to be exact. Hmmm.. seems as though it would take another 1.5hours before I can go home. Well, hopefully I will be able to finish it and go home before 3am! Actually, I did came in to the lab earlier today, or I should say yesterday, in the afternoon. Did my experiments till around 8pm. But.... haiz.. I thought everything would go well, which I should have known better then to expect something good in an experiment! Anyway, I ran my soluble fractions for my protein expression in SDS-PAGE earlier on... but I didn't see any protein being over expressed at all! Argh... And so, after I reached home, and had my KFC dinner... I can't help but to ponder over it again and again... why? Is there protein expression? Is the protein in the insoluble fraction?! argh... I'm those kinda ppl that can think about some failed experiment throughout the day and night - I simply can't stop until I find out why. And so, here I am... came to lab again at 11.30pm to work on the problem, to troubleshoot it... hopefully the protein is in the insoluble fraction... haiz.. I shouldn't have any hope... no hope no disappointment... no hope, maybe good results will follow... no hope... don't hope...
