Well I usually refrain from making posts like "today I feel sad" or "yesterday I went shopping, Ill update when I come back". WHY? Because I think it is stupid, uninformative, and usless. No one (except friends and family) cares (or even should) if I am happy, sad, or if I am going shopping or swimming. Unfortunatly for me and for people who feel like me ( and I know A LOT OF THEM) majority of blogs are full of such posts.
Now today though I have to kinda post such a "thread" if you will, because I am really, really happy. Yesterday I and Levon went to the AEO and AOA (Armenian fraternity and sorority) formal, which started at 8pm and lasted till 2am, plus it generated two afterparties which I could not make it to, since I had work at 8am. It was a splendid event and the people who put it together deserve a round of applause. People came, drank, dined, and danced (well mostly danced) all night. Since I also hate dancing and love taking videos/pictures I recorded the event.
So why did I post about my happiness? Well because I AM HAPPY THAT 300 HAYASTANZIS, PARSKAHAYS, AND BEIRUTSIS, got together under one roof, drank, had fun, AND NO FIGHTS BROKE OUT!!!! This is the beuity of AEO, and this is how IT SHOULD BE; ALWAYS!!!
Unfortunatly today nearly every Armenian "restaurant event" ends with a shameful fight over some STUPID CRAP. And Armenians from different backgrounds cant get together and make something good happen. We are a solid proof that it is possible. That is why I am happy and that is why this post is up.
BTW AEO received a Thank You letter from the California assembly memeber thanking us for our achievments in the community.
