I’m knocking a few more tags/awards off my to-do list and The Creative Blogger Award seemed like a good one to do. It also lets you know more about me! I was tagged a long time ago by the one and only Miss CW @ Read Think Ponder and recently by Dimple @ Enthralling Dimple. (Let me know if you’ve tagged me and I’ve forgotten.) Go visit these lovely ladies!

I graduated with a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) degree and I’m now doing a PhD in psychology at the same university. My research looks at attentional biases (the bias towards paying attention to emotional information over non-emotional information) and how we might be able to help people overcome this bias. But I’m broadly interested in interactions between emotion, attention and visual perception.
My PhD supervisor is American, as is one of the more senior PhD students in my lab who followed him all the way to Sydney. Because of this, I say some words with a bit of an American accent and I also do weird things like writing the date as mm-dd-yyyy instead of dd-mm-yyyy.
I am currently obsessed with cronuts (the offspring of croissants and donuts). They are SOOOO good, but absolutely terrible for you! I usually get mine from the Adriano Zumbo stores in Sydney. They have one flavour every week (the one in the picture below was the Snickers flavour: peanut butter, caramel and chocolate). They had lemon meringue last week (lemon custard on the inside and Italian meringue on top), which was the best one yet. I love all lemon desserts!
I haven’t borrowed a book from the library since about 2006. I’ve obviously borrowed reference books and textbooks from the university library, but I haven’t borrowed any fiction. I started earning money when I was 14 so I started buying all my books instead. Lately I’ve been thinking about borrowing eBooks or audiobooks from my local library, but I’m too lazy to renew my library card, which expired about 5 years ago.
My favourite Disney movie is Mulan. I love the story and the soundtrack. And I love Mushu!
A lot of people have done this Creative Blogger Award already, and I can’t keep track of who has or hasn’t, but I’m going to nominate some people anyway!
