Lists

DSC_0264 - Kopya
Keeping lists and taking notes consciously comes from creative minds. Just like me, I won’t be modest about it. If I have to muse about listing habits of creative and clever people, I guess that’s all based on the desire of controll. Having the documents of the things feels safe. Maybe they are all preparations for the upcoming unthought things, at least for me. When I watch a movie, listen to a speech or in a lesson a new list starts to be written on the notes part of my phone.

I am thinking of myself. Te first list that I’ve ever had is alphabet that daddy gave me. I was watching Sesame Street. Voila! I have learnt reading and writing by myself. I was 4 or 5. That alphabet was a beginning of a chain reaction. The first list that I’ve first made was the list of my friends from Kindergarten. Kindergarten was kinda dream. I still see my teachers there, they’re lovely and still concerned about me. Whatever…

The simpliest lists that I’ve made were about the books I’ve read and liked, the movies I’ve watched and liked, characters who inspire me… For exampe the one that I’ve made last year was about the things I’ve eaten every day. Moreover my recent list is about the money I spend every day. I also keep an agenda, feels like living more aware. Maybe I seem too obsessed on tidiness. Obsession? Maybe. Tidiness? Not at all. I like putting things in an order, not myself. Atully I’m tidy, mentally. The idea of organizing things makes me feel comfortable and satisfied. Moreover, stationaries makes this progress much more enjoyable. Why do Moleskine and Smythson exists?

That’s all for today, just something personal. Thanks for joining my inner speech.

Have a good time dandy people.

People tell me how colourful I wear and they wouldn’t dare to wear that way. (Just like bright pink pants and bright green t-shirt… Not neon, I don’t like it) I like colours. It makes me happy, that simple. There’s something about colours, maybe the energy it gives makes me feel this way, maybe the way how the people look at you. Whatever, I hardly recommend you colouring yourselves. Black is good, but colours are better. It’s a little bit cliché but I am thinking this way. What about you?

Amateur photographers at METU

DSC_0346
I and a friend or mine, Mine, have met this summer. She is an architecture freshman student and a passionate about taking photographs, just like me. We have wandered in our new school and took photographs during our EPE preparation courses. Our promenade became pretty instructive for us to get to know about METU more. Let me show you some of them. I wonder if you like them. 🙂

Architecture at METU

1_1
Hello dandy people! I wanted to say hello before my classes get harder. As you know I’m studying Architecture at Middle East Technical University. My lessons have started this week. First lessons of architecture were something like an advanced version of pre-school education. The most amazing time of my life was my pre-school period: I had a clear mind with bright ideas and I’m hopeful as much as those years even our teachers’ urging attitude.

I was going to miss the best part: there’s no right or wrong in lessons. You make it. If it feels right to you(and to your teachers either:) ) And you have to work during the whole lesson and there’s no chance to get bored. I love it.
