My skills, achievements and failures

First off, I want to talk about failures. If possible, I will always avoid failing. If I fail at achieving something, I will simply try again. I always remind myself to never give up. And so, if it is my power to do so, I never fail. If I do fail, then I will always remember it, learn from it, and if possible – keep trying to achieve what I was trying to in the future.

This is how how achieve my achievements. From hard work and dedication. And at the end of the day, there’s nothing more satisfied, than feeling, that today, I finally did it.

And of course, the second best things of achievements – the skills you gain on the way. I’ve gained many skills in trying to achieve something, and then even used it again in the future. Remember to never forget about your skills and always practice them.

 

Entering High School

Today we, the ninth graders, had an online call with the eight graders. We wanted to discuss the topic of entering high school, since they will be doing so next year.

At first we asked questions to get to know each other. After that the eight graders asked us some questions about entering high school, and then we asked them about their expectations about doing so.

I enjoyed this discussion, and wish to meet them again in the future. I’m sure they will have no problems next year, and I hope that they will enjoy it.

I wish I could fly

By Gor Martirosyan. Translated from Armenian, original here.

I wish I could fly – Gor Martirosyan

On this spring morning, the sun warms the hearts of the people, who have wonderful thoughts of the day on their mind, but the birds, the birds can fly anywhere, where they want to.

We, too, can fly – with our beautiful minds.

People love to travel, love to listen to music on the way, they love to watch the road, watch the sun, or think about someone, or some moment.

So, I decided to fly, to fly around Armenia and quench my thirst for traveling.

I traveled with my loved ones. The journey had begun, with high spirits, and full of emotions.

We could feel the cold air in our hearts. By looking away from the sun for a moment, I caught a glimpse of Sevan.

This time I felt the scent of freshness. We were in Dilijan. We were flying anywhere, where there was love, joy, or the callings of the heart.

By flying, I filled my soul, my heart and the sky. We flew over the mountains, the forests, rivers, lakes and roofs. There were no limits, no walls.

We shall fly and admire nature, we shall fly with our minds. We shall fly with our loved ones – looking into each others’ eyes, and feeling the heat of life in our hearts.
