A metablognition moment

What does one write about in a teaching blog during winter break? If I was actually teaching, I cold write about all the grading and planning I would be doing (or not doing), but, as I am still a student, I'm really not doing any of that. I suppose, since this blog has always dabbled in the personal, I'll just have to tell you about the books I'm reading, the trips I'm taking (and the ones I took before the semester started, which I have never managed to write about), and what I'm doing to fill the time between semesters. In future years, if I manage (I hope) to keep this up, I'll have more teacher-y things to say, more insight into being a teacher, but for now, I'm simply a student.

Oh, I'd like to thank Lara for the word "metablognition," as it really is the most perfect word for this sort of musing.

ha! i'm glad you like the word. as i described it to someone recently, it's "blogging about blogging - it's metablogging." i still think that word is hilarious. :-P

Just found your blog and thought I would say hello :) I'm also a teacher, but I work in international schools, currently in KL, Malaysia. Looking forward to reading your stories of teaching in the US :)
