I'm currently ignoring all of my own good advice, as I sit on the couch and obsess over election returns 🤷🏼‍♀️

This is why programs like the @UCRiverside Guardian Scholars (led by my wonderful colleague Tuppett Yates) are so very needed (& in need). For those who are able, you can make a difference by donating here:

Earlier this year, I shared my professional failures with a room full of people at a conference...which turned into sharing them with the entire field. The twist? It's one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. @LisaJaremka @lindatropp @joshackman

I just learned some disturbing info about @SusanGKomen: despite their apparent focus on curing breast cancer, most of their funds go toward raising "awareness" rather than research. See this video for more info: #CureKomen

One of the great privileges of my life has been having Bob Rosenthal as a colleague for 11 years. With his retirement mere weeks away, he's giving a mic drop of talk at the UCR R'PSYC research conference, complete with a poem about Clever Hans. What a guy. #rockstar #UCRiverside
