  •  ahh yes (5+ / 0-)

    I was pretty paranoid to the point of psychosis when I wrote papers. "Is this plagarism? Is this my own idea? How do I cite this? omg it's 4am and the paper is due in 6 hours!" Thus began my love of overcitation. Some profs apparently don't like that....

    Bascially put, yes, you should cite your work. Now that I'm out I went through some of my previous diaries and can see where I got lazy. This is a good kick in the pants to unlazify. Yes I made that word up, just now. It's fair use though because I'm cool.
