Psych-facts

Yeah so PhD work sucks and something that someone suggested to me: a lot of grad students make blogs about their work to kind of vent.

While obviously I have a blog it’s not professional…at all, lol.

So I made http://actual-psych-facts.tumblr.com/

because i see so many “psych fact” posts being circulated on this site that are total bs or misinterpretations or half-correct.

So feel free to send me your psychology questions (but please read my disclaimer that I will not discuss mental illnesses. At all. I am a researcher, not a clinician, and no responsible clinician would diagnose you via a tumblr post anyway), or tag me in a post if you want clarification/something fact-checked/whatever of that nature.

Feel free to help me spread my blog around, too, lol.

I cannot stand small talk, because I feel like there’s an elephant standing in the room shitting all over everything and nobody is saying anything. I’m just dying to say, “Hey, do you ever feel like jumping off a bridge?” or “Do you feel an emptiness inside your chest at night that is going to swallow you?” But you can’t say that at a cocktail party.
