You know you've been a grad student for a while when...

you cite a solution you gave to a problem in the previous homework for a class and think the professor shouldn't have a problem with it.

I have a homework assignment due at 11:10, and a meeting from 10 - 11. One problem to go, and the solution really is the exact same as the solution I gave to a problem on a homework I turned in last week. Irritating that the prof would do something like that. Anyway, I have 40 minutes to get this last problem done and get to my meeting, so I better get back to it. I just caught myself citing a homework and thought about how citations have become such a part of my life that I do them at the oddest times myself.

UPDATE: Ok, the prof had a point. Writing up the solution I realized something interesting about the architecture in question (we are examining the properties of parallel machines arranged in a hypercube layout. Cool stuff. Still, I cited a previous homework and that is odd. Homework is done. Now off to the meeting then class!

You're a dork. You can cite something that isn't published. You'd have better luck citing the example in the book.
