Remember the so-called debunking of the famous marshmallow test last summer? We independently analyzed the same dataset. The marshmallow test holds up just fine. New paper in press at Psychological Science:

If you ever think grad school admissions don’t get spicy, remember that I once received a rejection letter from a program after declining their offer.

Holy shit y'all I just submitted my first paper to a conference! It'll probably look like a dumpster fire to the reviewers, but I'm celebrating. I finally worked up the courage to submit something. Even if it's not accepted, I'll be thankful for the feedback.

New to Twitter after hearing is a game changer for Ph.D. students. First semester, feeling like I'm in the intellectual deep end with no floaties. Advice?

Hey , what's your best advice for becoming a more concise writer? I've been beat up a few times in reviews recently for being wordy and it appears as though I need to make a change.

What would you if you didn’t enter academia? Let’s be honest that we daydream about it. Today, I’d work in fashion to help people w/marginalized bodies find affordable clothing that makes us feel powerful & enables us to exist w/out pain.

Do graduate students develop the ability to detect free coffee/food as soon as they're accepted or is it just after their first week?

A lot of my peers (and myself) are struggling with IDENTITY. If you only think of yourself as an academic, and your project isn’t working, how can you not blame yourself for work failures? How do you separate yourself from your work?

Does anyone else find yourself ruminating over the socially awkward or weird moments of your day? I have such a hard time shaking off uncomfortable interactions, no matter how small. 😕

Q2. Using a gif, explain what the most challenging part of being an academic parent is. (And if you don't have kids, what's the most challenging part of NOT being an academic parent?)

, I'm having an existential crisis. I keep hearing people say that is the best time of your life... but I feel like I'm stressed to the max, working super long days (plus nights and weekends), and have no time for my fun activities.... /1

Just finished 1st video interview for faculty job. Mentor told me that it would be enjoyable & nice oppty to learn more about a different school. She was right-anxiety-provoking, but really good experience. Am very glad to have one under my belt!

I hate the word “service” in academic settings. Many of us do institution building. We invest in graduate students, colleagues + depts we care about. This aligns with our values + an ethics passed on to us by . Let’s not devalue that.

Hard truth: You won't be productive research-wise every single day of your PhD. Life events happen, humans need breaks, health issues arise, etc. Approach your research with intention and goals but also be kind to yourself.

Just submitted 68 pages of my thesis to my supervisor for him to read/edit and it feels fucking GREAT! Not a smoker, but I feel like I need a cigarette 😂

I am sick of sexism in the academy. I don't care that it has been going on for forever. I don't want to hear that we need to wait for the old, white men to die off. I am sick of it and I am sick of the excuses that people make for it.

I think Profs should make old exams freely available. They're out there in some capacity if you hand them back after grading anyway. The difference is only a privileged few have access (frats, sororities, clubs, etc), which unfairly tips the scales.

"As with Ollerton’s previous work...the insights to be drawn from such an approach are limited by a) the varying quality of the work being summarized and b) the definitions of response variables being tracked." Fuck you, reviewer number 2.
