'Aggressively' isn't a great way to treat an invited speaker though...😞Not that can't handle anything thrown at her though!

I think there should still be one on the baggage claim at Oakland International...

No surprises there; super friendly, welcoming, and a lot of fun - at least it was when I attended in 2012 (had to double check that, can't believe it was 7 years ago! 😮)

My favorite part of most lectures is chatting with anyone who wants to come up to the front afterwards to ask questions. It inspires and enthuses me to talk shop with super-smart students who are perhaps seeing the topic for the first time, with fresh eyes.

I'm not claiming to be that good at teaching (yet), but try to improve each time. My main concern is the lack of interactivity; I feel I'm just talking *at* the students. This is perhaps unavoidable in a class of 200+, but I'm always open to suggestions as to how to improve.

That said, I know this isn't a view shared by many colleagues (at R1 institutions, anyway), who see it as an obligation that detracts from their research, but who will then lament the quality of candidates for grad school without making the connection between these two factors.

Perhaps an in academia, but wow I really love teaching! I only do a couple of lectures per quarter, but feel so grateful for the opportunity to (hopefully) enthuse the next generation of scientists to go on to great things. My ❤️ feels so full afterwards.

I always leave meetings with my advisor feeling better than when I went in. Incredibly grateful for 's advice, perspective, and patience - prioritize nice people when looking for jobs (if you are able) and you won't go far wrong. 😊

As a non-US postdoc at a US university, I find the whole concept of these organizations fairly confusing and don't really understand their function on campus. They're very vocal in getting new recruits outside the student center though!

Ah, some top-quality content. And who could forget 's fox-rating thread! That's good tweetin'. But I just can't suppress the feeling that my thoughts on most subjects are of little interest to anyone else...🙃

As in cute non-human organisms? Or as in cute human male animals? I occasionally stumble across one of the former, but not often the latter... 😉😂

Well, at least I will try and make it funny/cute/backstreet boys related; learning from the pro! 😉

Twitter goals! 🤩 I'll limit my fanboying to this tweet, but I'll have to try and tweet more now, and less nonsense when I do...

All credit to Perotin and the Hilliard Ensemble, and thanks to you for all the lovely poetry you've shared today and in the past.

Early polyphonic choral music likely written in Notre Dame during the 13th century seems appropriate:

Listening to music that was likely written in over 800 years ago while watching it burn. What a morning. 💔
