You should punch people who talk in lecture because it’ll make your memory bad.

"The impact of perceptual interference on recognition memory"

THIS. hope it turns out to be useful data to use against loud mouth people.

I’m alive.

And life is awesome. Teaching is awesome. Making mistakes is awesome. Going in again the next day and rocking it is awesome. Kids are awesome. Cooperative and caring colleagues are awesome. Commuting is awesome.

So I should definitely take the time to write a little more than that…but I really want to put together a lesson plan for speciation and phylogenies, so maybe later.

First day of teaching tomorrow!

I feel ready, but still nervous. I’m really proud of what I have been able to accomplish this year…graduating from CSULB, moving out on my own, and securing a very cool, even though it’s temporary, job. I honestly cannot wait to see what comes next. 

Any advice for first day of teaching?

daily reminder to stop supporting stephen colbert

wheres the joke? wheres the joke colbert

This is the joke. The joke is that the Washington Redskins organization refuses to acknowledge that the term “Redskins” may in fact be racist, so they started an organization to provide resources to Native Americans, which completely misses the point.
Colbert’s (non-existent, btw) “Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever” is a parody of what the Redskins organization is actually doing in actual reality. 
It’s lampooning actually stupid bullshit that you, for some reason, are NOT paying attention to.
That’s the joke, you humorless animals.

RESEARCH PEOPLE.

No one thinks critically anymore. No one checks the sources anymore. Just plaster some words onto a photo and post it on Facebook and it’s automatically true. THINK
