After quitting my teaching job to seek a PhD in social psychology, and moving 2,600 miles to Fayetteville, Arkansas, I am now starting to post here again.

I am not sure what the blog will be since I am not producing it for my students (I am not teaching this year), but it will likely include a bit more about research in my subject area, and less general postings. But we’ll see. Stay tuned.
