Preface The idea to run an electronic chronicle came to me on April 4 th, 2011. I am going to list the most significant thoughts. The main idea is to put in the mood, which is varied. There are soft transitions of the mood and quite radical ones. I find it natural, so I wouldn’t want to try to coordinate it. This may interest some other people as just a life experience. Writing this chronicle helps me to summarize the meaning of particular period of my life. I wasn’t indent to write a lot. The pictures and photos came to complement the meaning I did would like to put. There are some days without any verbal notes. There is about two month interruption at the end of 2012, when I started running my two professional projects.

Date: 04-06-11 Isn’t it great that I can download Architectural Review Panel Agenda Revised from City Hall site of Calabasas right away from my home ,with my notebook and professionally enjoy it.

Some uneducated people would think that if they own the land and buildings, they don’t need the permit of local municipal organizations to make changes or for new constructions or additions. Back then in 1994s, by my intuition I felt that it should be permitted.

Date: Sunday, May 01, 2011

Long time rainy day. I loved the composition of photos of Diana and William. It generated some thoughts. Is she alive?

Date: Saturday, May 14, 2011 Today is the museums free day. Yes, it’s sad, very sad for me to be here! I should have been busy with these nice opportunities rather than doing things of today. I should of be able to complete at least three online URBS classes, but if being there; some other regular classes and two internships, paid or unpaid.

Date: Wednesday, May 18, 2011 The International Museums Day! I managed to attend four museums today.

Date: Thursday, May 19, 2011 The Railway Museum should work, but it was closed.

Date: Wednesday, June 08, 2011 This is the native Californian wildflower elegant clarkia.

In recent few days I would decide the agenda which would satisfy my intellectual needs, until the deadline to leave this ugly country. I am going to get familiar with one type of native plant and one new planned city of California. In fact I should have been doing my loved Urban Studying at CSUN some internship jobs.

This is the right scaled architectural environment for me. Here, I personally feel mostly comfortable. This is the first location I enjoyed at The Commons, on March 16th, 2004, after the hearing of Administrative Judge, on claim of isa for EDD Unemployment Insurance Benefits eligibility. Also, I called Kelly Services, and got scheduling for job at Devise Research, starting from 2:00pm.

Date: Tuesday, June 14, 2011

What a good idea- the fast growing trees?

Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Ultimately, today I decided to write down only positive memories, until the deadline would come up. Yesterday, I got a book from the library, where I use the American Corner section for English, information and some Internet Navigation for free. The lady who wrote the book is in my age group. She had few short stories edited by her husband, about the life in both countries. I liked this idea. Since 2006 I have appeared in a situation that several times I did have made a decision to write a book about it. The reason of not doing it yet, is that the situation is not ended. I should see the end of this situation to decide in what form I should publicize it.

This project reminds me the technique of doing this type of drafting and coloring.

Date: Saturday, July 16, 2011

This is the photo of a week on the official site of the City of Calabasas. I haven’t seen this type of trees there, I have seen smaller and with narrow leaves trees, besides high palms and I would get surprised every time, thinking how can be with this trees to have such a clean air around. I mean this:

Now, when I am reading the article on The Body (The New Science of Aging), I understand why would feel me better back then in Calabasas, when I would move more, walk more, work and study. That’s why everything was productive. I wouldn’t feel old.

Today, while I am waiting for some documents to be back, what kind of opportunity to start to do the right thing for me and not to waist the time.

Date: Tuesday, July 19, 2011

These are my studies for the future. I don’t earn money yet, but I will. Also I am going to continue my Urban Studies.

Date: Wednesday, July 20, 2011

How much dustless should be the environment to maintain this outdoor room?

Date: Friday, September 23, 2011

When I analyze the situation of those days, I guess I was on the right way; I should graduate from the collage, to make normal living, I should learn English as well as was possible to go ahead in my URBS major and simultaneously I could think about my own small business like Landscaping Services or something else for my son to continue it. Now I am just curious, why the idea of the Landscaping Services came so late to me? But I do recall that the first application I forced ( mother and brother would think and try me convince that I could with my English of those days being totally new in the country do that job) filled out in US, was for landscape architect. I wasn’t arrogant that much to do so; I just did it to show them that it will not work. Maybe they would force me, to get disappointed and go back, who knows, what was on their minds? Now I know that they made not little efforts to drive my life in that way.

This was the first location in The Commons in Calabasas; I stepped by on March 16th of 2004. It was about 12:00 pm, after the Hearing of Administrative Judge on UI from the previous co. This was the start of my beautiful life in USA. I started working in Davis Research regularly up to the midst of November, after three months of interruption of my orientation day and two more working days, in midst of January. I would enjoy the time up to the April of 2005. Accordingly, I may say that one year and a month was the time I would feel that I was in the right place for me and on the right way to organize my life, ultimately, after graduating from LAVC, to reach my goal of majoring in URBS at CSUN, and to have my son with me. If it wouldn’t be destructed my job there, I already was planning to buy a small house around there on mortgage, which was quite realistic. I already did have scheduled an appointment with a real estate agent, and he did have checked my records before the appointment. About the reasons why I stopped that, I don’t want to put on this positive page. This was destructed by some forces, and this is the problem, which I am going to resolve.

This picture was on the Seattle Gov. site- Japanese Garden

In order to use this time as much as possible useful, I plan to study the general plans of Calabasas, Thousand Oaks, (which I have done before), Seattle , Portland (OR) ,with less than million population, and San Diego with over a million population. First two cities I loved and they are perfect for my taste, others I did choose according to my gained information about them and studies at CSUN.

Date: Wednesday, January 25, 2012 US - The oldest judge passed away in his 104 years old! He/she should be much acknowledged professional justness judge to retire and to live such a long life.

When I think about the time period I lived in US, I guess I should use the time more effectively, regardless those multiple obstacles by wrong guys. I hope some day I will be able reveal that facts. They wouldn’t realize how much they harmed me. I expect that the life will compensate them for that.

Date: Friday, January 27, 2012

I’m very much happy that I do have the possibility to study any General Plan I wish downloading them from online sites of City Halls, but if I wouldn’t have this interruption of my real studies at CSUN, I could work on real GP by Internship program or part time as a student worker.

Date: Thursday, February 23, 2012

Today I recalled an incident which seems very funny to me, simultaneously serious and important fact. On the first “July 4” I met in US, I got this incident. I was a guest at an Armenian guy’s house, and Henrique told that it’s the Independents Day. I laughed loudly, thinking that he was joking, because about what dependency could be in the most Democratic and Independent country of the world as I knew about USA. On my laugh, he got offended, and said that I wouldn’t know the History, because America had got Independency from British Colonists. It made sense to me, in my blurry memories of History knowledge, and I avoid the discussion of that theme. About two years later, when I studied the History class at LAVC, I got back to this theme. Today, I realized that the country I lived in; was closed for the History facts and I was just directed by my contemporary impressions of the image of US.

L'Enfant's plan for Washington, D.C., as revised by Andrew Ellicott (1792) Washington, D.C. is a planned city. The design for the City of Washington was largely the work of Pierre (Peter) Charles L’Enfant, In 1791, President Washington commissioned L'Enfant to plan the layout of the new capital city. L'Enfant's plan was modeled in the Baroque style and incorporated avenues radiating out from rectangles, providing room for open space and landscaping. the McMillan Plan was finalized in 1901. It included the re-landscaping of the Capitol grounds and the Mall, constructing new Federal buildings and monuments, clearing slums, and establishing a new citywide park system. Architects recruited by the committee kept much of the city's original layout, and their work is thought to be largely in keeping with L'Enfant's intended design. After the construction of the twelve-story Cairo Apartment Building in 1894, Congress passed the Heights of Buildings Act, which limited building heights in the city. The Act was amended in 1910 to restrict building height to the width of the adjacent street plus 20 feet (6.1 m). Despite popular belief, no law has ever limited buildings to the height of the United States Capitol or the Washington Monument. Today the skyline remains low and sprawling, in keeping with Thomas Jefferson's wishes to make Washington an "American Paris", with "low and convenient" buildings on "light and airy" streets.

It’s an environmental healthy house with “green” construction materials. Design is healthy, simple, and straight to move. There are not any stairs and other complications to move freely in your house. I would add a na rrow, not deep waterfall at the corner of the lot.

The 27,000 local planning departments are there to administer this stuff for us. And they are conditioned to follow the codes. We are ludicrous not to use this. They are going to administer something; we need to make it our system. By Charles Marohn in Strong Towns on CNU 20 I have some arguments on this- Aren’t the planning department professionals with right majors? Don’t they have the right education in Urban Studies? Isn’t there the public administration major? I do have this experience during my working years, but in other country, and I know definitely why they were doing wrong: the protectionism of not professionals and the bribery. Are there the same reasons in the country of laws?
