I’m finally getting around to reading Steven Pinker’s _The Language Instinct_β€”it’s been on my β€œto-read” for way too long. So far, I’ve found his unquestioning support of Chomsky’s UG a bit annoying and his brutal takedown of Whorfianism refreshing.

Found out today that a few acceptance/rejection letters from the PhD programs I applied to have just started going out. And now I can't think about anything else. Notification taps from my Apple Watch have become anxiety-inducing. Thanks, thegradcafe.com. 🀞🏽😟

Gave a workshop about teaching and learning vocabulary to a group of _Masa Israel Teaching Fellows_ near Tel Aviv. Had some great comments, questions, and general engagement, both during and after the workshops. Thanks for coming, everyone!
