About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hayat bu, bir bakarsın her şey bir anda son bulur. Hayat bu, son dediğin an her şey yeniden can bulur.

ABOUT ME

We all are different, whatever our origin, whatever our hobies,whatever our profession, whatever our gender, we all are human. The varities in peoples nature and background reflect the precious colors of life. I want to see all the colours...

The inspiring moments in life are actually very simple and ordinary. I think simple, I live simple. I believe everybody in life has a story to tell.

My mood changes very frequently, like an air - my horoscope is also from air group - I just live life how I feel...I like to listen stories, to confess I am also a little lazy so much that I sometimes even to talk.. ;P

PHILOSOPHY

Dont wanna die slowly

He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "it’s" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
dies slowly.

He or she who abandon a project before starting it, who fail to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know, he or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
die slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.

I also enjoy Blues a lot but in ist we do not have many places to listen to it.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Life as a whole is amazing for me. It is so beautiful that I appricate all the things I have...

For me, in very ordinary things there are suprises to appriciate and be amazed of...

Some people say that I am crazy but for me I am just trying to enjoy the life: you cant see the other side of the river unless you jump and cross it, you should just have a courage to try it...

The most amazing thing for me was not jumping from the highest bridge in the world nor falling from a plane flying over 500ms with 100km/h. It was not a crazy party that I had till morning nor a trip to Paris nor hitching all over Europe and Turkey. All these were the things I enjoyed a lot, but I think the most amazing thing for me is to watch a seagull while it's flying up in the sky...
