Remembering the Armenian Genocide – 102 years later

William Saroyan - Armenian Genocide

William Saroyan – Armenian Genocide


Today, April 24th, is a day of remembrance for the lives lost during the Armenian Genocide, which took place beginning April 24, 1915. We are now 102 years from the original atrocities that took place. Over 1.5 million Armenians were murdered between 1915-1918 – approximately 75-80% of the Armenian population of the world at that time. Thankfully, the attempts by the young turks of the Ottoman Empire to eradicate the Armenians was not successful. Currently the Armenian Diaspora includes over 9 million people throughout the world.
Please take a moment now to remember those lost in the Armenian Genocide…

The Armenian Genocide is still denied by Turkey, but over 25 countries and 45 US states have officially recognized and remembered the Armenian Genocide. If you have never heard of the Armenian Genocide before, please take a few minutes to browse through my posts below which outline some facts of the event and my great grandmothers account of the atrocities, as she was a survivor.

Part 1 – The Armenian Genocide
Part 2 – What Transpired
Part 3 – Recognition of the Armenian Genocide
Part 4 – A Survivor’s Account of the Armenian Genocide – My Great Grandmother.

Thank you for taking a moment to remember.

Study BarBri

So… I was trying to study Evidence and instead modified “the work song” from Cinderella into what is below. (it’s pretty late, don’t judge me too much)
For context, you should listen to: Cinderella The Work Song

Cinderella’s “The Work Song” (Barbri remix):

Study Barbri, Study Barbri
All I hear is Study Barbri, from the moment I get up
till shades of night are falling
There isn’t any letup, I hear them calling, calling
Go up and do the outline and go down and do the essays, you can do them
both together
“Study Barbri.”

How lovely it would be
if I could live in my fantasy
But in the middle of my dreaming
they’re screaming
at me
Study Barbri

[Jack:]
Every time she’d find a minute
That’s the time that they begin it
Study Barbri, Study Barbri
[Stepsisters:] Study Barbri!

[Jack:]
Study Barbri, Study Barbri
Night and day it’s Study Barbri
Make the outline, finish the multiple choice
Watch the lectures, do the essays

[Girl mice:]
And the learning and the memorizing
They always keep her hopping

[Jack:]
She goes around in circles
Till she’s very, very dizzy
Still they holler

[Girl mice:]
Keep a-busy Study Barbri!
We can do it, we can do it
We can help her Study Barbri
We can make her learn so easy
There’s nothing to it, really
We’ll sing a song about it
Put some black law rules in it
When testing at the hall
She’ll be more prepared than all
with the lovely song we’ll sing to Study Barbri

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Gonna help her Study Barbri
Got no time to dilly-dally
We gotta get a-goin’

[Gus:]
I’ll read from the convisor!

[Jack:]
And I can do the MBE!

[Girl Mouse:]
Leave the outlining to the women
You go get some sleepin’
And we’ll make a lovely song to Study Barbri
[Girl mice and Gus:]
We’ll make a lovely song to Study Barbri

My mom lets me.

So I was looking through my old yearbooks and the things people wrote on the “autograph” pages and in 4th grade I find this:

“Dear monica,

I hope i can come to your house over summer vacation. if it is ok with your mom, i can come, because my mom lets me come to your house! if i don’t, have a great summer!

Love michelle”

…and then in 5th grade

“Dear monica,

Hope you have the best summer you have ever had in your whole entire life.  I am going to come to your house, my mom lets me.

yours truely,

michelle”

I feel bad making fun of a 4th/5th grader, but come-on… this is hilarious (and i think my mom lets me).  I probably wrote equally hilarious nonsensical things, but luckily I don’t have the yearbooks I signed!!  I’m sure this is just a case of not knowing what to write in the yearbook of someone in her class, but lets for a moment analyze this… So in 4th grade, she only cares about coming to my house, but wishes me a great summer if she doesn’t come by (her mom lets her).  In 5th grade, she starts with the buttering up, telling me to have the best summer of my WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE… following it up by letting me know she IS coming over (her mom lets).

Can’t believe coming to my house was so important that it made it into 2 years of yearbook signatures… but I get the feeling she didn’t get to come over because she didn’t even sign my yearbook the following year.  Oh well.  Or maybe her mom didn’t let anymore…

[to be fair, she does sign it again in later years, and they read perfectly normally w/ no mention of my house or her mom]

Jealousy v. Envy

I have a question… What is the difference between jealousy and envy?

I looked up both words and these were the two definitions I found (I won’t tell you which is which):

  • feeling resentment against someone because of that person’s rivalry, success, or advantages
  • A feeling of discontent and resentment aroused by and in conjunction with desire for the possessions or qualities of another.

What is the difference?!?  Can someone explain what the difference is between these two words and the two definitions?

Thanks…

All you do is visit the page (http://kiisfm.com/common/perfectwedding2008/vote.html), click on the radio button for Nick and Jess, and then click “Vote Now.” You’ll only be able to vote once, unless you either disable your “cookies” or delete your “cookies” after each vote. Disabling cookies is the preferred method because it’s the easiest on you. But do whatever you feel most comfortable with.
