There’s a new set of readers over here, and I wanted to stick a quick “wave, smile, and offer a nice hot dish” post up.
-I’ve been writing more frequently than usual, and expect to keep this up, within some constraints. Every Monday, there’s Monday Miscellany, a collection of links and suchlike. Otherwise, posts appear at around a rate of two per week.
-This blog is loosely themed around psychology, and breaks down into roughly:
- 39% thinking about how human interaction (including therapy) works, could work better, and fails.
- 18% Kate grumps about bad data collection/confounds/research/teaching of any of the previous. This is the Someone Wrong on the Internet part.
- 27% stuff that relates to eating disorders and eating disorder treatment
- The remainder: “HUNH. Look at THIS. Just look at it! Aren’t brains weeeeird?”
-Other post topics include baking (have some Nutella cookies!) atheism, and studenting.
-I belong peripherally to the rationality community, and participate in the secular-atheist-skeptosphere on a semi-regular basis.
-For five more weeks I’m an undergrad getting two degrees in psychology (applied and research-based) in Chicago. Very shortly thereafter I will be getting a Master’s in Social Work in Boston. I’ve worked previously in schizophrenia research/treatment and adoption services, and have an unfortunate amount of personal experience with eating disorders.
-There is no official comment policy, but the unofficial one is Be Nice And Cite Your Claims, Please. Commenters are on first-time moderation, but I’m quick about approval.
So! Hello! Well met! Who are you?
