Things won't get busy quite as soon as I'd like, however. Because I work at a teachers' college, all junior students have a required one-month teaching practicum in March. For me, this means I won't resume teaching junior writing and junior video for a few more weeks. For them, it means three weeks of observation followed by one week of hands-on teaching experience. (I think that's all they get -- seems a little paltry.)
In the meantime, I'll be planning lessons, reconnecting with students, giving a few culture lectures for the department, and studying Chinese.
Now that school has begun, I will no longer be blogging about winter holiday. So you will have to live without seeing such wonders as seaweed donuts, foot-eating fishes, bowl boats, short ceilings, and elephants in the streets.
I'm sorry to deprive you, but that's just the way it's gotta be. Back to lesson planning!
