About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I was supposed to be on the way to central asia. But when I did the last leg of the journey (Tuva) at the very beginning the flow of life has changed.
Here's some things about me:
1- I think you must just shut up when you don’t have anything to say.
2- One of my favorite things is having my hands in my pockets.
3- I like the wasabi getting into my mouth but coming out from my eyes.
4- I dislike people who ask “how are you?” but leave before the answer.
5- I dislike people getting what they want by putting a cuteness mask and looking vulnerable as well.
6- Only moment that I’m close to religion concept is the seven deadly sins point. UPGRADE! There's more than that.
7- I worship cinnamon and cumin.
8- My childhood hero was Evliya Çelebi.
9- If I’m grumpy just run away.
10- I still don’t know why I’m sent to here.
11- I worship the color green. UPGRADE! Green left its crown to yellow when I learned my element is kinda enemies with green :)
12- My biggest nightmare when I was a child, was the possibility of getting married to a butcher.
13- I am a cardigan freak.
14- I dislike seriousness of people who take salsa lessons.(no offense please. I used to take swing lessons and it is a much sillier dance :)
15- I never wake up for pee.
16- Most domestic side of me is the love of owenware.
17- When I learn to dress up compatible with the weather I will stop asking “why I’m sent to here”.
18- I like to smell long term travelers.
19- I couldn’t finish this list in one year. So think twice when you say you know someone.
20- I think nihilism can’t be an excuse for unhappiness.
21- I’m scared of old people. Their skins, I’m scared of. Their smell, I’m scared of. Their teeth, I’m scared of. Their cough, I’m scared of. Their never ending didactic speeches, I’m scared of. Their nostalgia, I’m scared of.
22- You’d hear this from me a lot during summer: Too hooooooooot!
23- started to hear "no way" or "too difficult" or "dangerous for a lonely girl" a lot lately. i think i'm on the right track. UPGRADE! I have been a good girl for last 2 years :)
24- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahv_1IS7SiE

26- so long and thanks for all the fishes.

PHILOSOPHY

be careful what you wish for.

the things that other people have put into my head, at any rate, do not fit together nicely, are often useless and ugly, are out of proportion with another, are out of proportion with life as it really is outside of my head. by vonnegut

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I get amazed easily :)

witnessing the reflection of milky way on the sea was fantastic.
I think dreaming was the most amazing thing that I've ever seen.
