Turquoise

Hello!

Days are longer and the sun is shinier from now on. These brilliant weathers make me feel so happy, energetic and fresh. I love Spring and better, summer is coming! So it is time to put our nice and colorful clothes on and enjoy the weather outside. I am going to do a little vacation this weekend in Big Island (one of the Price Islands) and celebrate the end of the busy week.

My favorite color for this summer is turquoise. It is a smooth and relaxing color. I want to do a shopping for the summer and buy a lot of turquoise pieces with yellow and orange accessories that i believe will create a contrast harmony^.^

Have a nice day!

Artik gunler daha uzun ve gunes daha parlak. Bu guzel havalar bana inanilmaz bir mutluluk ve enerji veriyor, yenilendigimi hissettiriyor. Bahara bayiliyorum, ve daha da iyisi yaz geliyor! O zaman guzel ve renkli kiyafetlerimizi cikarmanin ve disari cikip keyif catmanin zamani geldi. Ben de bu haftanin ders yogunlugunu atlatip haftasonu Buyukada’da kucuk bir kacamak yapacagim.  

Bu yaz icin favori rengim turkuaz. Huzur veren ve goz yormayan bir renk. Yaz icin bir alisveris yapip bir suru turkuaz parca ve onunla renk kontrasti olusturacagina inandigim sari ve turuncu renkte aksesuarlar almayi planliyorum ^.^ 

Keyifli gunler! 

 

College Sundays

Hello from a sunny Sunday afternoon!

We are together again on a “College Sundays” series. This Sunday, I am at the university meeting some friends and writing a report about the fashion sector for my Sectoral class (what a nice topic, huh?).  Just my luck, the weather is so nice that doing photoshoot was extremely enjoyable.

Nowadays

Weeks passed without a single blog post since there was a problem with the camera’s memory card. But finally I could buy a new one and can continue making photoshoots yehuuu!

What I was doing in this period?

First of all, I was studying. I had always a good reason to study. In my first year in university I studied because I wanted to be selected for an internship in abroad program my university organizes. I then had been selected and did an internship in Credit Europe Moscow. The second year I studied because I wanted to do study abroad. I again succeeded and studied in the University of Minnesota for one semester-one of the best experiences in my life. Then, this academic year I am studying because of my new ambition: a master degree in US.

This goal is harder than the others, I am aware of that. But I enjoy that challenge, it gives me a mission.

Although I am a hardworking person, I have never been a nerd in my life. Not because I think being a nerd is a bad thing -actually I don’t- but because I have TOO much energy for life. I love going out, talking & laughing and trying new things. I was meeting with some old friends and also enjoying time with my boyfriend. He did a great birthday party and gathered my close friends for me few weeks ago. Unfortunately we couldn’t take a lot of photos. I regret not taking photos with every valuable person who was with me in that day, but here are some of what we took:

Other than studying and socializing, I was reading. I started to be a good reader, I am really proud of that. In this month, I read four books. Books are making me feel calm and optimistic.

That was a quick summary of my life nowadays.

See you on the next post! Love you <3

9 Steps to have a better Monday :)

 

to have a better mondayEveryone is talking about the “Monday syndrome” for years. So, I want to write about some tricks to have a better Monday at the university mentally and physically. Although it is for university students, you can also apply these suggestions to your work life. I hope these will also help you like it helps me.

Herkes yillardir bir “Pazartesi sendromu”ndan bahsediyor. Bu nedenle ben de universitede mental ve fiziksel olarak nasil daha iyi bir Pazartesi gecirilecegiyle ilgili bir yazi yazmak istedim. Universite diyorum ama bu tavsiyeleri is hayatina da uygulayabilirsiniz. Umarim benim isime yaradigi kadar sizin de yarar.

1

Start the day with a quick shower while listening to a happy morning mix from 8tracks.com. (An example: http://8tracks.com/portamentofication/good-morning-sunshine )

Gune hizli bir dusla basla. Bu sirada 8tracks’tan mutlu bir sabah sarkisi caliyor olsun (Bir ornek: http://8tracks.com/portamentofication/good-morning-sunshine )

2

Drink an orange juice at the breakfast to start the day energetic (breakfast is a must!)

Kahvaltida portakal suyu ic ki gune enerjik baslayasin (kahvalti zorunlu!)

3

Wear something colorful. Even if you want to wear black on black, put a little color to your outfit with details (accessories etc.)

Renkli bir seyler giy. Tamamen siyah giyinmek istiyorsan, detaylarla (aksesuarlar mesela) kiyafetine renk katabilirsin.

4

Buy a coffee when you arrive school to make sure your brain works:)

Okula vardiginda kahve alip beyninin calistigina emin ol:)

to have a better monday5

Don’t sit at the back in the class. Sitting at the front seats make it easier to concentrate to the lecture and therefore to have higher grades at the end

Sinifta en arkaya oturma. Daha on siralara oturmak derse konsantrasyonu ve bu sayede de iyi notlar almayi kolaylastiriyor

6

Go out and have a fresh air with your friends when it is break

Ders arasi verildiginde arkadaslarinla disari cik ve temiz hava al

7

Make time for gym. Walking speedily and/or swimming will help you to relax and feel spry even in the worst days

Spor icin zaman ayir. Hizli hizli yurumek ve/veya yuzmek en zor gunlerde bile rahatlamani ve dinc hissetmeni saglayacak

8

Carry two bottles of water and don’t complete a day without finishing them

Iki su sisesi tasi ve gunu onlari bitirmeden bitirme

9

Instead of whining about how boring and busy the day is, focus on the moment and concentrate on what you supposed to do

Gunun ne kadar sikici ve yogun olduguyla ilgili mizmizlanacagina, ana odaklan ve yapman gereken seye konsantre ol

Friday night at Sishane

sishane

You still don’t have a plan for tonight? My suggestion is Sishane for you to have a delightful night. In one of my previous posts, I told you how I love to hang out at Sishane these days. The buildings from old Istanbul have stayed the same and reminds me of the old Paris. The bohemian atmosphere and understated sophistication of the place pulls toward itself. So if you get bored from your usual hangout venues, give it a try.

Bu aksam icin hala planiniz yok mu? Benim tavsiyem zevkli bir aksam gecirmeniz icin Sishane. Daha onceki postlarimdan birinde size bu aralar Sishane’de takilmaya bayildigimi soylemistim. Eski Istanbul’dan kalma binalar bana eski Paris’i hatirlatiyor. Mekanin bohem atmosferi ve mutevazi sofistikesi insani kendine cekiyor. Yani eger her zamanki gittiginiz mekanlardan sikildiysaniz, burayi bir denemenizi oneririm.

sishanesishane

Where to go at Sishane? Try the Big Chef’s that stated next to the Metro station exit. You can have a romantic dinner or enjoy your time with drinking beer with your friends. Choose which sounds more heart warming for you.

Sishane’ye geldik fakat simdi ne yapacagiz? Sishane metro cikisinin hemen ilerisindeki Big Chef’s hem romantik bir aksam yemegi icin hem de arkadaslarinizla bira icme keyfi icin harika bir yer. Hangisinin daha sicak geldigine siz karar verin.
