As Peter Cooper stated, back to back weekends can be tough. I had to take extra vacation time when my flight out of Toronto was delayed by bad weather.
Ummmmm... well... I get 5 days of PTO. Super great, I know. As for being independently wealthy: HA! I just started my job 3 and a half weeks ago and I'm not taking a salary from my own company yet. I'm just crazy and I enjoy FRC events. My engineering job is also an hourly position, and they advertised flexible scheduling as a benefit during my interview. We'll see exactly how far I can push that (especially in my first year) but my hope is to work hard early in the week so as to minimize the amount of PTO I use up.
