About Me


Being brave and kind


I live in Istanbul but I left my heart in Scandinavia. All I have in my life is my imagination. I'm very lazy unless it's dancing or reading. I find experiences overrated, imagination is more interesting. I'm a walking cliché. I live for my own truths. Maybe I am not perfect but at least I dont set my photo as my phone background. I feel like a literature junkie, but unlike most drugs, I am benefiting from my addiction in a positive manner. Literature takes you on ventures through various levels of knowledge, and with knowledge, comes great power. I like beautiful melodies telling me terrible things, my favorite thing about me is my music taste. I’m passionate about the things that interest me and I still cry over stupid Hollywood romantic comedies. I'm so very in love with Kinder Suprise eggs. I strongly believe sadness can be eaten and books get lonely too. I hate when people call me 'hun' and I've been told I am a hater. I dont feel well when I stay in a place for longer than a few months. I constantly need to be reminded that life is not a Belle&Sebastian song. I drink only and only tequila and I'm still working on getting my drunk times better. I'll like you if you have something to teach me so hit me up.


Update, September 2014: I'm very proud to say that my love-hate relationship with tequila seems to be finally over. My heart now belongs to Mexico.


"I exist, that's all, and I find it nauseating.”

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll teach you how to belly dance with your fingers (yes, for real) and how to survive in Istanbul. I'm also a great teacher when it comes to depressing yourself over sad songs.
