I just started a software development internship and I'm working on two really fun projects. Project A is self assigned to help me learn a new language and environment, and B is the same thing but a manager recently added some additional requirements.
I had to go home early today to make sure I didn't go over my hours and I was really disappointed because I was on a roll with project A. If I wait until after the weekend to continue A I may not get a chance to work on It for a while because I'll be expected to make a lot of progress on B. I have plans to eventually combine the two projects.
I have no big plans this weekend and want to work on project A, but I'm already at the max hours I can work, so I want to just work on it and not clock my hours. On one hand I don't think it would be a big deal even if it was obvious I worked from home because who cares what I do in my free time? On the other hand I had a previous (retail) job where I was told that working off the clock was a fireable offense.
I know I'm probably overthinking this, but regardless if it is allowed or not why would it not be allowed? Is there any reason why I shouldn't just risk it now and ask permission when I get back on Monday?
