My First Radio Interview Experience With TrikTrak.ca Was A Great Success!

On The evening of April 5th, 2012, I received a phone call to be interviewed on http://www.TrikTrak.ca of Montreal/Laval. A great friend of mine who is part of the Radio station was very interested in me and what I had to say about raising awareness on bullying, and as well as The Armenian Genocide. Then I spoke about My Blog and my blog’s success, as well as My love and devotion to Montreal, Quebec and the reason behind it. It was a great hour that I spoke to Setrak who interviewed me and to his many many listeners. I received a lot of feedback afterwards from friends and family that they had tuned in and it was fantastic. Thank you to all those who listened to me and what I had to say. I also noted that the more people watch shows like Glee, Jersey Shore and reality shows and all the other shows that don’t put a great example to teenagers these days and how horrible shows they are to watch. Instead of more family oriented shows and shows that teach people great life lessons, here we are in the society we live in and all these terrible shows get approved whereas quality and great shows do not get approved. It just does not make sense to me.

I spoke about my experiences when I was bullied, How I overcame it. Everything is in the link I will post.

Then I spoke up the high rising costs of living, gas prices and everything how people are struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table and everything and that is why stress and depression is high above because people just don’t know what they will do with their earnings and the employment places some of them are terrible, and I also spoke about the high cost of the gas prices lately. Its just terrible. I am hoping people can take a breather and stop with all these unnecessary costs and they unnecessary bills people have to pay. Everything now is about money and the more the prices go up, the more people start losing their minds and do terrible things which will lead them to get into trouble. Anyway, if you missed my show and interview, Here is the link below. After a couple of songs in the beginning, my interview will start.

Some parts are Armenian, but I tried to speak it all in English so that everyone can understand….

Thank you so much Setrak for this Opportunity to speak on your radio show. I appreciate it very much and God Bless you.

Gas Prices Are So Ridiculously High – I cannot believe it

I have just been so appalled by the gas price increasing so much by month and annually. As it is society and living expenses are increasing as well with taxes and everything else especially in North America. People are working so hard to make ends meet to put bread and butter on the table and make an honest living. These gas prices do not have to be this high. Most of peoples earnings go into gas nowadays and high taxes.  It is unbelievable how ridiculous it is. Some people who make minimum wage or a little higher use a day or two’s worth of work to just pay for fuel costs. How are people supposed to go out driving, enjoy themselves, go away on road trips, go to and from work, go to functions, gatherings with the constant worry of gas consumption. Yes I do believe in saving the environment and less emissions and toxins going up in the ozone layer, but there is a limit. People shouldn’t have to worry about their gas tanks all the time. Some people think twice of driving to places and making trips here and there because of the constant worry of having an empty tank. Whatever happened to the 39cents a liter or gallon or whatever it was? So people end up staying home or they end up not taking the car anywhere and they miss out on something really good. These gas companies and government should really focus on getting the fuel prices down significantly. People aren’t born to work like crazy and work so many hours a day just pay off for gas and some people work far from home and some don’t have access to public transit as much and things have become too inconvenient. People deserve breaks and people deserve to be treated like human beings. Nobody should be subject to work like animals(pardon me) to just pay for high taxes and fuel costs. People have families to support, necessities of life, school tuition to pay, medical expenses, utilities, and so much more. All these add up and some barely make it.

I look at these gas stations and I look at these prices and its nuts. totally nuts! Don’t go too far, the groceries are so expensive. 25 bucks doesn’t really get you far these days with that either. Now people are looking for more fuel efficient cars, hybrids and smaller cars. Now these big cars with more than 4 cylinders are being downsized. I feel for people who work to just pay for gas and food here and there. Life has become so tough out there, high rising costs that are hurting everyone and that is why so much stress, depression and people who go crazy. Its because of things like this. People are getting sick, people don’t know if they are coming or going. I really feel for people out there who don’t even have enough time to spend with family and friends because of it. Before Sunday’s nobody used to work and people were entitled to time off, now its so fast paced and people don’t have weekends and evenings anymore to spend with their loved ones. even during holidays. My heart aches and it breaks me to hear these stories about people trying to survive to make a living. Its unbelievable. I really do hope things turn around for peoples sake. Were all human, we deserve sometime to ourselves and our loved ones. Change needs to happen and needs to happen now before more and more people get sick, depressed and stressed. Life should be balanced with everything and life is not all about work, but nowadays unfortunately that is what people need to do to survive in this day in age. Lets hope for the best and hopefully things improve.
