A meme!!!

What is a Meme?
Here there are some definitions:
A meme is:
  • An idea that, like a gene, can replicate and evolve.
  • A unit of cultural information that represents a basic idea that can be transferred from one individual to another, and subjected to mutation, crossover and adaptation.
  • A meme (pronounced /mēːm/) consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.

  • This a meme I found when I visited my friend Bertha's blog. We are going to experiment with our first meme... so here it goes.... I answered these questions about my life and I am going to pass them to some of you... later you will pass those same questions to 3 more classmates you would like to know more about.

    What were you doing 10 years ago?
    Ten years ago... 2008 now... so that was 1998. I was in my last year at LUZ and having my practice classes at Liceo Escolastico Andrades in Mcbo. I had already gotten married and was pregnant with my first son Leslie Enrique.
    5 things you have to do today:
    Today, I have two of my classes to teach.. I am also teaching teacher Patricia Charles's class. I have to go to the pharmacy to buy some medication for chicken pox. My son got it from my little son.
    Snacks I enjoy…
    I love chocolate. Specially Nutella. my favorite snack is to have nutella with bread.
    Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
    I would buy a house for my mom and another one for me. I would donate some of the money to a children or elderly institution and probably start my own language school. Of course, i will go on a vacation to a exotic place like Fiji.
    Three of my bad habits:
    Being strong headed sometimes... working too much...
    5 places I have lived:
    I haven't lived in many places... I lived in Ciudad Ojeda and Anaco once.
    5 jobs I have had:
    I have always worked as a teacher.. language teacher..
    3 people I want to know more about:
    I would like to know more about: Mariangely Caldera, Jose Pirela, Helimenes Hernandez

    Dear Doris,
    How nice of you to refer my blog to your students. I am completely flattered.
    I will be attending Endil, Mérida, next week to give a presentation on sociocultural blogging for reading. Are you coming? I would love to meet my maracucha friend (I think I already told you I was born in Maracaibo myself and both my parents are from there too).

    Right now I am overloaded with the three courses I have, two about reading, one on writing and there is too much going on but would love to set some collaboration with your students in the future.

    Keep up the excellent work you always do.
    Cariños, Berta
