I moved to Armenia for further studies. I will be doing Bachelors in Hospitatility and Tourism Management from Armenian State University of Economics, I will be staying here for at least one year, but the complete course is for four years. I will go back to India probably next year in October for ten to fifteen days maximum.
Seven months back I went to China for eight days and I really enjoyed it there. I am loving it here also, people are extremely friendly and helpful. Although English is a little problem here, but I think it is everywhere if you are not into an English speaking country.
I am simply loving every moment of my life here. I will try to upload some photographs later on. I must go now, I will try and log-in in couple of days.
I hope all are well, and thanks friends for reading
Wow, Supreet that's a big move, geographically and career-wise. I guess you have to brush up on your Russian (correct me if that's not the majority language). And how in world did you go from IT to Hospitatility and Tourism?!
Anyway, the thing I really want to say to you is good luck and stay safe in your journey!
Whoa that's quite the change lol. I would love to see pictures, I don't think I've ever seen Armenia before. Am I right imagining it as a post soviet gray cement looking country? I don't mean that in a bad way, but my imagination is lacking at the moment.
Everything I write is Sarcasm.
I am in Armenia yes, Dr. Žaz it is indeed a very big move, the reason I left India was because I dont like it anymore. I dont like Indian people mentality anymore, I was really getting sick of it, so I moved here. I will probably stay here for atleast one year, my future plan is to move to
Germany and settle there. Or, if possible then California (America).
My skills and talent were not being properly recognized in India, so I was only left with Customer Service Support, and I was really getting sick of it because of doing graveyard shift from almost six years, and Americans yelling at me "I dont know my computer is not working, f**king fix it you moron" (I worked for Microsoft, Convergys). I can make a helluva computer that can blow Alienware ASS!!. So, I moved here, I am sure I will do much better, if not in computers, but then in Hospitality and Tourism Management.
Meats, Armenia has very weak economy, but people are really friendly and good here. I am absolutely loving it, Aremnia is VERY well developed since 1991. And yes, I f**king loved China, pretty girls everywhere and food was excellent.
I would even live in Uganda, Africa, but no INDIA please
I say good riddance buddy, you had a perfect reason for moving, I hope everything goes well for you there. If you don't mind I would like to see pictures of the local cuisine, that is what I'm a fan off when watching TV lol.
Everything I write is Sarcasm.
holly smokes, i did read that right .. lol. you are one of the first people i know actually moving there. it's pretty small from my understanding.
there is a big Armenian community not too far from me (Glendale, CA).
i would definitively consider the plunge to Germany considering the European economy.
lot's of tech companies there too and plenty of stratups. the hospitality business is stronger in the south and north.
This place is very good, much better than f**kin India. I have some photographs with me that I would like to share with you guys. Although, it is very strage, that saying "hi" or hello is not common here.
Damn man, now you look like a Punk! XD I like your old look better, more professional looking!
You may hate your home country at this point for whatever past reasons, but for sure later in you life you would not think the same, since after all it's your heritage and it's in your blood. I am of Chinese decent, and I have a lot of disagreements with some of the traditional values, as well as the current political systems and business practice in China. I came here to the States in a young age and spent most of my life here. I love every bit of being an American, but still I would not deny my heritage.
I think one of the problems for India, and China alike, is that there are just too damn many people! It's no good, when there are just too much competitions. It's not a strange sight to see hundreds of young people line up for a job interview in China. It's not strange to see PhD's working as tour guides, because they can't find jobs in their own fields (because there're too damn many PhD's around). Another set of problems for both India and China is that there are still quite a bit of business corruptions going on, and there's little regulations for employee discrimination. In China at least, it not unusual that your boss can discriminate the f**k out of you and you can't say a f**king thing! You're not happy?! Fine, go ahead and quit your job, it's will be your own fault! We are so spoiled here in U.S., we won't survive a month working in India and China, seriously.
I can't believe you did customer support for 6 years! Early in my career I did phone support for 3 months, and that's quite enough for me. And that's just for internal IT support, I can't imagine what's like for external customers. I can understand some of your pain, man. Wish you success on whatever career choice you make!
Don't rule out U.S of A. as a potential new land of residence for you, even though you were yelled at by some of the idiots here. No doubt there are a lot of f**ked up sh*t here too. And we are falling behind a bit in the world, due to our self indulgence and mostly spoiled younger generations. But it's still the land of opportunity with well established business laws. Still one of the few countries where different ethnicity, religions and believes can co-exist with little conflicts. I have quite a few colleagues (former and current) of Indian decent, though I don't think I know one that's a Sik yet. Don't forget we have Newegg here for your hardware needs, it's very important, LOL! XD
Dr. Žaz, I really do not think and I think China is WAY better than India, I was in China for eight days and man, I really loved it there, I especailly loved "Kung-Pao" food. And if I had to say about girls, I think Chinese girls are more open minded than girls here in Armenia. I made lot of friends in China (female friends) but I have yet to make a female friend here in Armenia, and it is more than ten days already.
BoT, thank you for the comment, yes I think my new look is better. I usually try and find person who speaks in good english. I speak like a guy from New Jersey or New York, I have North Eastern American Accent, because of the training I got and experience in calling the United States of America for six years. Customers are shocked when they know that I am from India, and have not been to the United States of America. My clases have started too, so I am learning Armenian language too. (Evon ces! )
Meats, thank you man, I am learning Armenian.
Mr. Albrich, I do not watch TV, because the landlord did not provide me with one, lol.
You have New Yawk, New Joisy accent?! You could have do the following response to your customer, would be a much easier job for that six years...
Customer: "I dont know my computer is not working, F**king fix it you moron!"
Supreet: "R yu tawkin to me? R yu tawking to me, huh? Excuse me, did yu joist cawll me fawr tawking to me?!"
Customer: "Yes I am talking to you f**king sh*t!"
Supreet: "Forgettaboutit! I need some wawtah." [Hang Up]
Bad economy is Ok, they have Supreet there to help them.
At least, there's no young nut-case computer geek there who will pick up a real assault rifle and start playing FPS in real life! Very disappointed and sadden by the recent event here in U.S. Like I said before, there are a lot f**ked up sh*t here, no sh*t...
