Life

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin–real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.Alfred D. Souza

Its the Sadness…

Its really sad how Law School infiltrates your entire life. There is no part of you left to yourself, everything is taken over by Law School. Your days are spent in class, your nights doing homework, your weekends outlining or trying to read ahead so you can watch TV during the week. All the time you do actually take off from doing homework you’re thinking about how guilty you feel for not doing more homework. You can’t even watch TV in peace, you try to do something that takes minimal thinking while you watch it. What is worst of all is that even your social life, the things you do when you go out, are Law School activities. Law school Bar Review, Law school formal, dinner with law school student org.

Who knew something could get such a strong hold of who you are.

Its Friday night and I feel guilty. Guilty for watching TV during the week, guilty for taking time to eat out, guilty for watching an Alias marathon, guilty for wasting time talking to people from my section, and guilty for having friends over (ok I feel really guilty for this last one).

Law School, why do you plague me so?

More on the Armenians…

Turkish Novelist Orhan Pamuk just won the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature for writing about the Armenian Genocide, breaking through the lines of Eastern and Western Cultures, fearlessly challenging the controversy of his country’s history, and unveiling the truth!

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/10/12/print/main2084113.shtml?source=RSSattr=World_2084113

Pamuk has been banned from Turkey, and the country refuses to acknowledge his Nobel Prize. As a result of his courageous attempt, France just approved a bill last week, making it a crime to deny the Armenian Genocide. Coincidentally, this decision was made on the day he was awarded the Nobel prize.

This is one small step for man, and one HUGE step for Armenian!

Friends v. Armenian Friends

Keeping with the armenian theme here is a cute joke about friends v. armenian friends:

FRIENDS: Never ask for food
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Are the reason you have no food.
FRIENDS: Call your parents Mr. and Mrs.
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Call your parents’ mom and dad.
FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Cry with you.
FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then gives it back.
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it’s yours.
FRIENDS: know a few things about you.
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that’s what the crowd is doing.
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Will kick the whole crowds’ ass that left you.

FRIENDS: Would knock on your door.
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Walk right in and say, “I’m home!”
FRIENDS: Are for a while.
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Are for life.
FRIENDS: Will ignore this.
ARMENIAN FRIENDS: Will forward this.

Armenian Genocide in the news.

Was skimming Yahoo News this morning and came across an article entitled France seeks to calm uproar after approving Armenia genocide bill.  I’ve included the body of the article below.

PARIS (AFP) – France has sought to calm an uproar in Turkey and in the
European Union after the French parliament approved a bill that would make it a crime to deny that the 1915-17 massacres of Armenians by the Ottoman Turks constituted genocide.

The French foreign ministry insisted that Paris was still “very keen” on dialogue with Turkey and wanted its “strong ties” with that country to continue.

But a furious Ankara — which strongly contests the use of the term genocide — was in no mood to listen, saying that France had dealt “a heavy blow” to longstanding bilateral relations.

Turkish parliamentary speaker Bulent Arinc called the vote “shameful” and said it reflected a “hostile attitude”.

The
European Commission also criticised the French bill, saying it would hinder efforts to heal the wounds caused by the Armenian carnage nine decades ago.

The sharp reactions came after France’s lower house of parliament, the 577-seat National Assembly, approved the bill by 106 votes to 19. It now goes to the upper house, the Senate, for another vote.

If voted into law, it would become a crime in France to deny that the killings of the Armenians were genocide. Those violating the law would face up to one year in prison and a fine of up to 45,000 euros (57,000 dollars).

Although introduced by the opposition Socialist Party,
President Jacques Chirac’s ruling centre-right UMP party did not use its parliamentary majority to block the bill. Some UMP parliamentarians voted in favour of it but most were simply absent for the vote.

The clash over the bill highlighted broader tensions between France and Turkey over the latter’s bid to join the European Union.

While Chirac has championed Ankara’s ambition, he has had to soften his support somewhat in the face of domestic opposition even within his own party.

The French government has done what it can to put distance between itself and the bill.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Jean-Baptiste Mattei said: “We are very keen on dialogue with Turkey, as well as on the strong ties of friendship and cooperation which link us to that country.”

But the spat dividing them has been festering since 2001, when France adopted a law officially calling the Armenian massacres a genocide.

The new bill seeks to build on that by criminalising those who disagree, much in the same manner as a French law that outlaws revisionism concerning the Holocaust of World War II.

Armenians say up to 1.5 million of their ancestors were slaughtered in orchestrated killings that can only be seen as genocide.

Turkey angrily rejects the notion that its Ottoman predecessor was responsible for such a gross violation of human rights.

It admits 300,000 Armenians died when the Ottoman Empire fell apart during World War I. But it but says at least as many Turks did too, as civil strife raged and the Armenians took up arms for independence alongside invading Russian troops.

An association representing the Armenian disapora in Europe, the Brussels-based Euro-Armenian Federation, hailed the French parliamentary vote as a “historic step forward”.

Around 400,000 people of Armenian origin are estimated to live in France, the most famous being singer Charles Aznavour, born Chahnour Varinag Aznavourian to immigrant parents.

Turkey has cast the French bill as a restriction on freedom of expression.

It has threatened economic reprisals against France if the bill becomes law, warning that French firms could be excluded from public tenders and a boycott of French goods might be imposed.

The European Commission, the European Union’s executive arm, was also unsettled by the draft law.

“Should this law indeed enter into force, it would prohibit the debate and the dialogue which is necessary for reconciliation on this issue,” said Krisztina Nagy, the commission’s spokeswoman on enlargement.

“It is very important to see that there is an opening in Turkey to conduct debate on that issue,” she said, adding that the French bill, if it became law, “could have a negative affect on that debate”.

Thats why she shies away from human affection…

Savage Garden – To the Moon and Back.

She’s taking her time making up the reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smiles and the look in their eyes
Everyone’s got a theory about the bitter one
They’re saying, “Mama never loved her much”
And, “Daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from human affection”
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right kind of pilot to come
And she’ll say to him
She’s sayin

I would fly up to the moon and back if you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
I’ve Got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

She can’t remember a time when she felt needed
If love was red then she was color blind
All her friends, well they’ve been trialed for treason
And crimes that were never defined
She’s saying, “Love is like a barren place,
And reaching out for human faith
It’s like a journey I just don’t have a map for”
So baby’s gonna take a dive and
Push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she’s hanging
All her hopes on the stars
What a pleasant dream
She’s sayin

I would fly up to the moon and back if you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
I’ve Got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

Mama never loved her much
And, Daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right kind of pilot to come
And she’ll say to him
She’s sayin

I would fly up to the moon and back if you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
I’ve Got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?
