for 28 years now on April 30th, I celebrate my birthday. I am so happy and glad for all my birthdays and I am ever so grateful to God for giving me this life and I thank my parents for bringing me into this world and to experience everything I have experienced in my life, with traveling to many places, for giving me everything, a roof over my head, a nice warm bed to sleep in, food to eat and so much more. I am so thankful for everything as I look around the world and people do not even have running water to drink and bathe from. I am so fortunate and I have learned not to take anything from granted in my life.
There were times where some of my birthdays did not go as well as I had hoped for. Once in high school when I turned 16 years old, I had invited about 30 people to come over to my house for my sweet 16 birthday party and it was one of the most embarrassing yet humiliating things in my life where only one person showed up out of all the others. I was thinking they were my friends and everything but they really weren’t. I was devastated that I could not have a sweet 16 party, and also I never knew what it felt like to have a surprise birthday party or even had a big party to celebrate me and my day. I never knew what that feeling was like. I didn’t even know the feeling of when I turned 20, 21 years old where I would have a great party, but I did go to Montreal for my birthdays quite a lot in my early 20′s and to get away from things and to enjoy a dance club here and there with my friends in Montreal. The only parties I have ever had was when I was a kid where a lot of my family came over to celebrate and that is about it. To me The gifts weren’t important, but being with my family and couple of friends is what I want.
I know parties should not matter and everything, but in my case it does. In my early adult life and as an adult now, I want to be able to know what it feels like to have a party. I know that I can create my own party and have people over and stuff and go out but I just get those bad memories again when I was 16 years old. I really never had a lot of friends to begin with and I invited all those people and never showed up except for one. I was crushed and cried for days. I just want to know what it feels like to have a party and its all about me and having people around me that has come to celebrate me. I am hoping that will happen soon. I sometimes feel so isolated and they are feelings that I never want to get back. Nowadays everything is great. My beautiful friends took me out for my birthday over the weekend and surprised me with a cake which was so sweet of them. I will never forget that.
What have you experienced in the past about your birthday? Did you have a birthday that was a blast or not such a blast?
Anyways, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my family, friends and fans for all the birthday wishes, the phone calls, text messages, e-mails, facebook messages, the birthday cards, the birthday e-greetings, virtual cakes, flowers and everything. I really appreciate it so much from the bottom of my heart. I love you all!

Hi Everyone, Its been a crazy few days and I wasn’t able to write on my blog. Haven’t had time to get on the computer. Today is my day to catch up on my e-mails, write on my blog and do so much that I have missed in the last little while from family and friends from abroad and so much more, but I am back. Its been an emotional roller coaster for me. It was a good little break from technology, but today I decided to come back and enjoy what I love doing the most is to blog and to interact with others on social media websites, along with WordPress and so much more. I haven’t had the energy lately, but this morning I woke up feeling fresh and better. I have been a little under the weather too. I have a cold which I haven’t had one in almost 3 years. It came back with a vengeance on me. So I am going to keep this short and sweet today. All the best to everyone.
A Delicious Middle Eastern Recipe. Dessert
We make this in our family during special occasions and among everything else throughout the year.
This one of our popular desserts.
1 1/2 cups semolina flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons flaked coconut
1 tablespoon baking powder
6 whole almonds, split in half
1 1/2 cups water
1 3/4 cups white sugar
2 tablespoons rose water
In a medium bowl, mix together the semolina flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, yogurt, oil, coconut, and baking powder. Set aside for 30 minutes.
In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together the water, 1 3/4 cups sugar, and rosewater. Bring to a boil, and boil for 3 or 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool to room temperature.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread the semolina batter into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking pan. Slice into squares or diamonds, and place on almond half onto each piece.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light brown. Switch the oven setting to broil, and broil until the top is golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the oven, and pour the syrup over the squares. Serve warm.
Today has been a really tough day where my emotions are on a roller coaster. You know how you get that feeling when you meet your sweet online friends face to face and then eventually have to go on separate ways? Well, today its become a hard battle for me. I just love them so much, and they mean the world to me. They are like my sisters and have become part of my family in a way. We have talked so much in the last 3 years and have shared incredible and beautiful moments together which I will not forget. On my birthday last year, on this station called Radio AGA, They had my number and so they called me on my birthday to wish me a happy birthday and I remember I had just finished driving and my phone rings. I was heading out with friends for my birthday and all of a sudden all my friends from Online say their happy birthdays to me. It was so cute! I will never forget that. among other things that have happened which are so incredible. I just can’t believe we finally met. It was like a dream. It came by and went again, but I am going to make a trip soon to go see them. I need to see them. It was so hard to let them go. Very hard. I was crying and balling my eyes out and I couldn’t control myself yesterday. I miss them so much already. I had never encountered such sweet people in my life. They have been there for me through thick and thin and in the past 3 years online, they have always helped me in situations and they have always made me smile.
I know I spoke about this topic yesterday, but today I am getting into this deeper. I truly felt how genuine my facebook friends are and how beautiful and great they are and I sensed it when we added each other from the beginning and when we made eye contact and met each other for the first time this summer and last summer, I truly felt a connection between us and it was something so special and I will never forget it. Ever for the rest of my life. Those memories will always be with me in my heart, mind and soul. I love them so much and they have become part of my family. My lovely sisters and brothers whom I will always cherish. I am going to see them soon and I am so excited, but I tell you it was a hard moment when we had to say our bye’s. God bless them and always keep them safe.
In my language in Armenian we say Jebid and that means smile, but we always respond with Siroumem which means you are loved always and that is what we say all the time, So Jebiddddd To my lovely Family of Facebook!
