You know you've been in AIESEC too long when...

you read the "@" sign as AIESEC
you expect more than 10 emails a day
you check your email more than once a day or daily
you introduce your friends as "this is___(name)___, he/she is from___(insert country)___ (or) he/she went to___(insertcountry)__"
you mastered the jonny cashmow rhythm
every time you hear Toxic you want to jump on the dance floor and do it...regardless of WHERE you are
you know how to make the best Powerpoints
you think the exchange "in/out" cheer is quite clever
you have contributed to the statistic that "one in every four AIESECers dates another AIESECer"
you improve "relationships between LC's" by making out with them
you seem to have gone back in time to a point where sippy cups are cool
you are physically incapable of drinking anything (alcoholic or not) with your right hand
when you pick up your cell phone and you say: good afternoon, aiesec Halifax
when you tell people you are busy "doing AIESEC", people think you're having an intimate relationship with a guy called Isaac.
you have an overwhelming desire to make up acronyms for EVERYTHING
you think stealing paper is reasonable
you want to put all of the above on the Quote Wall
you were excited to spend New Year's in Saskatoon
you post additions to this in the comments :)
