You Have Been A Research Student Too Long When

...you spontaneously and non-ironically think, 'The problem with this university is all the undergraduates...'

... your supervisor greets you with, 'Happy new year! You look like you're on the verge of collapse!'

... the single most satisfying moment of the day is when you notice that the NLS has finally provided paper cups beside the water fountain, so you can have a drink without looking like you've just been baptised by immersion.

No, sorry, nothing interesting to say; go and read Berenike's interesting cross-cultural observations.
