New Blog Theme

Today I launched my NEW blog theme which I am extremely excited about. With the design help of Matt and Zach, I created a theme that symbolizes a big part of my life. My Armenian heritage and last name, I display Mt. Ararat with Khor Virap in the foreground and the other part which is me being an Eagle Scout.

Even though I am only half Armenian, I focus more on my Armenian background because that is what I grew up with. I was baptized, confirmed and grew up going to an Armenian Church. I traveled to Armenia as an Ambassador of the United States to teach computers to students and teachers. The reason that I mention this is because while I was over in Armenia, we traveled to Khor Virap and the top banner looks exactly how it does as you are driving in. The sight is absolutely amazing to see and I would suggest Armenia as a trip because of its history, culture and sights.

*Note: The other half of my background on my mother’s side is: 1/8 French Canadian, 1/8 Scottish, 1/8 English, 1/8 Irish

I joined Boy Scouts April 1, 1998 with Troop 44 in Cambridge, MA. I completed all the requirements for the rank of Eagle August 30, 2002 and I officially became an Eagle Scout on January 2003.

I hope everyone enjoys my New Blog Theme

    Hi Timothy – I just came across your website while researching Armenian myths for a mythology class i’m taking. No, the teacher didn’t require it, i’m doing it so i can make a presentation at the end of the class because i was keenly aware of the absence of discussion regarding the Armenian culture especially since it appears that most of the myths that we are aware of today and credit to the Greeks and/or country of India actually originated with Armenians…as did so many other things that no one wants to give us credit for, an issue I am obsessed with these days. Anyway, I am getting a degree in multimedia graphic design and have a hankering to go to Armenia with my sons (i’m a middle-aged woman, by the way, so better late than never i figure, lol) and see if i can’t in some way, somehow, contribute to the efforts to better life for the Armenian people. I don’t know how exactly, but any way, no matter how small would be great. I saw that you had done this yourself by going over there and sharing your computer expertise with them….do you have any suggestions for me perhaps? Also, I really enjoyed the photos and everything that you have shared here. I am Armenian on my fathers side and French on my mother’s side but born and raised here in California. The french side has been a bit more visible for me since we traveled there a few times when i was a child but that does not mean that i feel any less the Armenian heritage in my blood. I admire and envy your chance to get to go there – any tips or information you may want to throw my way regarding pursuing this dream of mine would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for the great photos and comments you provided.
