Hello, world!

Teen Skepchick is revving up again–and I’m excited! I’m not exactly a new contributor, but a reintroduction can’t hurt. When this blog first started, I was a sophomore in college. A newborn skeptic. Still trying to decide whether I was good enough or smart enough to major in a science. Generally quite confused. Now, as a senior looking for neuroscience jobs and putting together her undergraduate thesis, I can’t believe that was only two years ago. My skeptical views have changed very little, but the way I’ve communicated my skepticism has changed a lot. In my mind this blog has only become more important for talking about good science, and healthy skepticism, and all that fancy jazz.

I love sharing my enthusiasm for science, and I’m all too glad to have friends who share my joys when reading about the first anti-laser or sheep eating explosive residue or how the giant biomass of krill reproduce. Although I have chosen to study the wonderful and mysterious brain, all that other science still manages to intrigue me. Some of my favorite (or most irritating) skeptical topics include: bad journalism, alternative medicine, and vaccination conspiracies. I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm for proper skepticism here, too!
