Dreams of an alternate life

I like the work I do, but sometimes I wish I could have stayed in the sciences. My ideal would be a setting where I am confronted with a problem that requires me to meticulously look for a solution by consulting textbooks, case studies, and journals that are all laid out open on a table with highlights and sticky notes. Preferably with a window looking out at a nocturnal cityscape or at least one where it was raining outside. I love the sciences, and I regret not exploring that world even deeper while in college.
