This is for everyone who is using my comment space to push your political propaganda:
Haha! Ok, seriously though guys, quit it, it's annoying. I wouldn't even bring it up, but I am tired of reading these stupid comments. This blog is mainly for my family and friends who like to read up on me. Oh and guess what, most of us are Armenian. This means that we believe the Armenian Genocide actually occurred. SO you can try to convince me it didn't by regurgitating what you have been taught by your clearly subjective sources, but it won't actually work. I have already heard every possible reason of why it wasn't technically a "genocide" and frankly, it really demonstrates to me the ignorance and blatant disregard of facts and history. That includes you, Armenians. Like I said, you don't have to convince me it happened, I already believe it, so stop sending me stuff.

Please, understand that I do not think that modern day Turkey or modern day Turks are to blame. That time was a completely different time with a completely different government. My mother and her whole side of the family lived in Turkey for a long time. It holds a dear place in our hearts. I have been there myself, and I loved it! It was wonderful and very beautiful. The Armenian Genocide did happen, in fact, I have family that were killed in it. To sit there and try to tell me it was all a made up lie I consider to be the utmost disrespect for me, my family, and my people. 1.5 million Armenians killed is not a coincidence.

Being a true-blue American, I believe in Freedom of Speech, so it's fine to say what you think...just don't do it on my blog. Thanks! :) No hard feelings.

First Week of School

Hey friends!
I miss you all and I hope you are well. Today is my second day of school. I am actually in the library killing an hour until my next class. First today, I had Genetics, for which I overslept and missed. Who misses the first day? Really? What an idiot! Then, I had Organic Chemistry directly after, which I made it to. Supposedly the hardest class ever! People who have graduated from medical school in all it's glory still refer to it as the hardest class they EVER took... :( Plus, there's a whole freaking section on it on the MCATs. Pray for me, dear friends. Then, I get an hour and a half break...which I am using today to catch up on emails, printing out notes at the library, etc, but in the near future will become library nap-time. Next, I have Microbiology at 1pm. Then Genetics Lab after that. Luckily the biology labs don't start until week two of school. I did have to go to Organic Chem lab yesterday though. It's going to be a 6 hour lab! Wow! I hope it'll be interesting. Maybe something will explode...that's always fun. I also started working out at the gym regularly again. I guess it's good to be back into a routine. I will also be working part time at the research lab between classes. I have no classes on Fridays, hallelujah! Well, that is my life right now. Just thought you might like an update. :)

One year ago...

One year ago yesterday was the day I was admitted to the hospital. It was on that day that I got to ride in an ambulance to the medical center. They worked to stabilize me all night. I remember drifting in and out of consciousness, but mostly I remember the pain. I also remember signing a sort of "will" and telling them my wishes if I was to be put on life support. It feels like some kind of bad dream. I can't believe it has been a year. It has felt like 10. Everything in my life has changed...physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually...I am not the same. I hope to be better than I was, with God's help, of course. I am feeling so great and life seems to be getting back on track.
Praise God!

Time to Party!

Today is a day to celebrate!!! I just got back from my cardiologist and I have been officially discharged from his care!!! Hooray! That means that my heart is in perfect condition and that it is not a problem anymore! Woohoo! I am still going to my rheumatologist to try to discover the cause, which we still don't know, but who cares!?!

Last weekend was one of the best weekends ever, not because of what I did, but because of how I felt. It was the weekend of my 22nd birthday and so I went out to celebrate with friends. It was the first time I had any fun since the hosptial and it was proof that I am not an old woman, which I found myself believing. I am still a young person who likes to have fun. My life is not over and there is still plenty of time! 2007 truly is turning out to be a great, blessed year for me!
