I think this year is the first year that I've actually reflected on what I'm TRULY thankful for. I gave my students a "I'm Thankful for..." essay to do, and while reading some of them I realized how we used to think when we were 10. What was important to us then? What's important to us now? And most of all I realized that there are A LOT of people in the world who never see beyond a 10 yr old's thankfulness for (orinag) PS2 ... funny thing.
Armenia Fund Telethon.... it was a great day! I spent the second half of my day at the telethon, doing different things (actually I just worked wherever they stuck me). I answered phones for a while, and I spoke to so many enthusiastic people who were just thrilled to be part of something like this. It really was an amazement feeling being in those studios... so many different people had come together. There was ONE goal for the day... raise enough money to complete the highway. It didn't matter what you were doing, whether you were answering phones, calling people, entering data, MC-ing, performing, supervising, serving food, just a part of the audience... you were working towards that ONE goal. Thaaaaaaaaat was the most amazing feeling. Bravo to all the organizers and all the volunteers! I can't wait to use the highway we all built together! :)
This weekend was also the west coast's AYF Olympics (much smaller scale than east coast). Of course it was our luck that it rained most of the day.... but my chapter won the volleyball championship.. yaaaaay Zartonk! :) The Hollywood Musa Dagh chapter won the basketball championship... bravoooo!
I'm VERY excited about going to Hayasdan next month....I can officially say there's LESS than a month! :)
