Kojian, you will be missed from the logs, but thank you for the years you put in and opening this forum for the rest of us.
Right now, I have my new interns in town, my grandmother, cousin, aunt, and company have all left, but my sister and her husband and in-laws will be here this weekend, our wonderful Executive Director of the ANCA will be getting married on Saturday for which the whole family is now in town, I am working on two different CD designs, both of which I am VERY proud of so far, and I have two more weddings on the following weekends. Next week's wedding is in DC, the following in Detroit, and two weeks later, LA for my cousin's engagement. All this while the internship continues in full force with lectures, tours, meetings each day, not to mention the daily activity of projects, assignments and just plain fun.
Thoughts on my interns? Well, I know at least one of them reads these logs so I don't want to give too much away so early in the summer, but I'll say this much... for such a busy time of my life, I can't complain. My interns have actually been a source of inspiration and comfort. For me to not use the word frustration at a time like this is a huge compliment. Much shall be accomplished in the Hai Tahd arena this summer thanks to a group of solid interns.
This afternoon there will be an intern mixer at the ANCA office for Assembly, ANCA and all other Armenian Interns currently in Washington. We have already run into a few of the Assembly interns at events and roaming the halls of the Capitol, it'll be a good opportunity for all these young Armenians in town to get to know each other.
Past news, the ARF had a dance in celebration of Armenian Independence last weekend. Nersik Ispirian performed and did a great job. A highlight of the evening was that an Armenian from the Kerry Campaign attended to read a statement by Presidential Candidate John Kerry celebrating Armenia's independence with us. I look forward to hearing about the music festival fundraiser you guys are holding for Kerry up in Massachusetts. Keep up the good work!
