The Summer Has Been Good to Me...I....
Learned the difference between MMORPG and virtual environments (Second Life), wrote an article on Second Life for Wikibooks, built my own amazing space on JoKayDia Island (the video should be here some time soon - hopefully).
Had an AMAZING teacher, Sandra Schecter (and those come only in long intervals).
Remembered how much I love fast driving... :)
Attended AILA (Multilingualism: Challenges and Opportunities) in Essen, Germany, and ReCALL in Antwerp, Belgium, organized by Linguapolis (both were amazingly fantastic).
Walked through the streets of Barcelona at midnight looking for Sagrada Familia (and that's a ritual already).
Got inspired by my student's blog. HER space. HER thoughts:
"Life is not about finding yourself, but about creating yourself."
Still working on all of the above points...
