A tous, restez punk pour 2007Happy 07 all, keep on rocking for the upcoming year

Happy new year all, I'm a bit late but still in time as I have until the end of january. [Insert what you want here], [here too], and [still there] for this new year. You got it, I wish you all the best for 2007. No resolution for me, I would forget it in 3 weeks. I started 2007 in Paris, surrounded by my family and my friends. I forgot for 3 weeks armenian coldness, fog, snoI found back a washing machine, warm showers. I'm coming back to Yerevan tomorrow morning, and passing from +10°C in Parid to -15°C to Yerevan won't be an easy thing..
Eiffel Tower, 31 of December, a few minutes before midnight.
Bonne année tout le monde (en retard, mais il paraît qu'on a jusqu'à la fin du mois de janvier, donc ca va). [Inserez ce que vous voulez], [ici aussi], et [encore là] pour cette nouvelle année. Vous l'avez compris, je vous souhaite tout ce qu'il y a de plus agréable pour vous pour cette nouvelle année. Pas de résolutions pour moi, dans 3 semaines ca sera oublié. J'ai commencé 2007 à Paris, entouré de ma famille, et à revoir les amis de promotion. Oublié donc pour 3 semaines le froid, la neige, le brouillard. Je retrouve la machine à laver, et les douches chaudes avec une pression décente. L’occasion de discuter avec les uns et les autres sur le futur, à peu près 2 ans après être entré dans la vie active. Je rentre demain à Erevan, et passer des +10°C parisiens aux -15°C arméniens s'annonce sportif, je vous raconterai.
La tour Eiffel le 31 décember, quelques minutes avant minuit.
Et personnellement, après avoir passé 9 mois dans le Caucase, et à mi-chemin de mon mandat pour KASA (il me reste un peu plus de 6 mois à travailler avec KASA, j’arrête le 30 juin 2006), je me rend compte que l'enthousiasme débordant dont je faisais part il y a de cela quelques mois n'est plus vraiment là. J'aurais peut être pu mieux faire, mais bon. Les Centres Internet Communautaires ne fonctionnent pas aussi bien que je l’aurai souhaité (et que mes supérieurs aussi j’en ai l’impression). J’en assume une partie des responsabilités. Et mes erreurs de jeunesse me serviront de lecon pour la suite. Plus de rigueur et de leadership par certains moments m’auraient été précieux durant certaines périodes clés. D’autres facteurs relatifs à l’organisation interne de KASA sont entrés en jeux, mais leur place n’est pas vraiment sur ce blog (en tout cas pour le moment). 2007 est là, et l'après Arménie approche à grand pas, (dans 6 mois, mine de rien, ca viendra très très vite). Et chaque jour je m'interroge justement sur mon avenir. Je me posais la question justement il y a quelqutes temps sur mon futur boulot. Et les enseignements de cette épopée arménienne sont légion. Déjà, j'envisage sérieusement de retrouver un job dans une entreprise, en lieu et place de l'humanitaire à but professionnel (ou alors dans une des 1% d'ONGs de taille mondiale), et garder un pied bénévole dans la coopération. Ca me permettra de continuer à cultiver mon côté punk :) Les ONGs de taille humaine de la taille de KASA permettent d'occuper un poste avec une autonomie accrue, ce qui humainement est plus qu'enrichissant (et j'y reviendrai plus qu'une fois dans mes futurs billets), mais il est temps pour moi de passer à autre chose. Je dirais que pour l’instant j’ai envie de repartir à l’aventure, dans un autre pays, mais ces derniers mois m’ont appris à me méfier comme la peste des certitudes, donc je laisse toutes les portes ouvertes. A priori, l'écosystème internet reste le domaine dans lequel j'ai le plus de compétences, donc je commencerai naturellement à chercher là dedans, sans pour autant fermer aucune porte cependant. Voilà, il est 2h du matin, comme toutes les veilles de départ, je n'arrive pas à fermer l'oeil. Demain à la même heure je serai en contrée arménienne, pour ces 6 derniers mois de cette aventure.

  1. Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

  2. Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  3. Ohja. Wobei mir mehrfach gesagt wurde, dass sowohl Bild als auch “das Essen” gar nicht so schlimm sind… es gäbe schlimmeres, auch wenn man selbst niemals sowas machen würde…etc.Ich bleibe dabei: Ich finde das absolut EKELHAFT!

  4. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Many thanks!

  5. Good day I am so thrilled I found your web site, I really found you by error, while I was browsing on Yahoo for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thanks a lot for a marvelous post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the excellent work.

  6. Hi! I’ve been following your web site for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Huffman Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the great work!

  7. Lovely card, I bet the metallic finish is really NICE! I had to LOL b/c I just got ours in the mail today. Better later than never is my motto these days!

  8. I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome web log!

  9. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  10. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  11. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

  12. « Si on espionne, si on pompe, c’est qu’on est pas capable de penser par soi-même » Une pensée émue pour tous les « grands Penseurs » français de souche,qui ont été surpris la main dans le pot de confiture.

  13. I am having a very hard time picking my favorites but so far it’s the black and white under the Fire Engine sign, the “swish” photo and the one of them by the barrels in the winery-H-O-T! Absolutely stunning photos!

  14. The median sale price for a home or condominium in urban communities rose 18 percent in the first six months of 2006I have heard of this happening in other places as well. One explanation I’ve heard was that low-end apartment conversions to condos aren’t happening with the same intensity as last year. With rents starting to climb and condo prices falling, it is no longer attractive for a building owner to convert to condo. As a result, you no longer have large amounts of lower-priced condo conversions weighing down statistics.

  17. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  18. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this brilliant blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  20. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My blog site is in the exact same niche as yours and my users would really benefit from some of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks a lot!

  21. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. many thanks

  22. Hey great website! Does running a blog such as this take a large amount of work? I have very little expertise in programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I simply wanted to ask. Thanks a lot!

  23. First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

  24. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it

  25. Wham bam thank you, ma’am, my questions are answered!

  26. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  27. Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he just bought me lunch since I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
