What’s in my bag: Architecture Happens

What’s in my bag: Architecture Happens



I want to tell a memory of mine from the night between last tuesday and wednesday. I was doing some homework stuff and it was 5.30 am. It had been a long time since I started to study and my brain was full of architectural documentary videos, books and articles. While I was writing down something on my logbook, I started sleeping. Suddenly I woke up and there was “bozuk çay” written on my logbook which means “rotten tea”. I erased it and tried to concentrate on my assignment again. I slept by my desk again. This time when I woke up I saw “tenispilates” on my logbook. However after all I decided to sleep.

It’s one of the strangest experiences I’ve ever had. Maybe it’s about our subconscious. If scientists did that as a test, I’m sure they’d find out pretty interesting results. Whatever, I’m just happy for this week had ended up, it was the worst in this school. That’s all 🙂

See you!

(You can see the marks of erased “tenispilates” downwards)

Merhabalar! Size geçtiğimiz salıyı çarşambaya bağlayan gece yaşadığım minik bir olayı anlatmak istiyorum. Saat sabahın beş buçuğuydu ve ben hala ödev yapıyordum. Bir gece için fazla denebilecek kadar çok mimari yayın okumuş, belgesel izlemiştim ve kafam karmakarışıktı. Biraz da uykunun etkisi vardı tabi. Logbook’uma yazı yazarken yavaşça uyuyakaldım. Hala yazı yazıyordum ve bir anda uyandım. Defterimde “bozuk çay” yazıyordu. İlginçti. Yazıyı sildiğim gibi ödevime devam ettim. Aynı şey yeniden başıma geldi. Bu sefer ise defterimde gördüğüm “tenispilates”ti. Bunların ardından doğal olarak biraz uyusam iyi olur dedim.

Anlatınca çok sıradan geldi ama başıma gelen en ilginç olaylardan biriydi bu. Bilinçaltıyla ilgili olsa gerek. Bilim adamları böyle testler yapsa oldukça ilginç sonuçlar elde ederler, bundan eminim. Her neyse, şu ana kadar okulda geçirdiğim en kötü hafta bugün itibariyle son buldu.

Görüşmek üzere!


Remember me?


Hello dears!

How tired am I! Yesterday I slept for 1,5 hours and had a very intense working night. Hence, today I was so sleepy that I couldn’t resist more and came home at the expense of missing a speech of the head of architecture department. I was really wandering that. I guess I need to get into that much tiring and busy days.

I used to be that kind of girl who cares herself and setled it into daily routine. Nowadays  the only “caring” factor that I’m doing is cleansing and fragrances which are totally a must for me (and I hope for you too!). However, my skin is screaming for help about dryness and teenager issues. Thanks god I have time for making outfits and clean my clothes(No, machines can’t do that for me. Half of my wardrobe requires hand-washing for wool and silk clothes, the other parts are already shirts, jeans and basics.)

What I need from the new year is to throw my laziness away and adjust myself into my week-planner. Learning a new language is on the top of my “recent to do list”, hopefully I’ll make it real on january. Moreover I also want to do solfege exercises every day and read all the books I’ve bought (It’ll take so much time I guess). And documentary films! Yes! I have collected and bought a lot of them and they are winking me whenever we come across in my bedroom. Photography? I’m learning it by trying a lot with different lenses but it still needs an education part.

I hope it’s understood that why I’m not writing my fashion blog anymore. It needs continuity. My intention on this blog is writing continuously too but I’m trying my best. Furthermore I need something new. It doesn’t seem satisfying to do spors or playing instruments. It can be anything. I’m still on the searching and exploring part on the change of me. It can be anything, I don’t know. Something changed in my life but I remain the same but it’s not right for the position I exist.

Whatever… That’s all from me now. I decided about the posts I’m going to write, wish me more time for those posts to be written. Bye!

Advanced Models : Deutsche Arkitektur Museum


One of the factors that makes architecture amusing is modeling. Whenever I find a chance to examine them, I take it full of advantage. Hence, it was unavoidable for me to visit Deutsche Arkitektur Museum while I was in Frankfurt. I took more than 600 photos in a very short time, can you believe this? There was a part that took my attention the most was the development progress of architecture from the first. Moreover model of Çatalhöyük, exists in Turkey, was well symbolized with figures showing how was the daily life of the people those days (about 6000-7000 BC). I want to share some detais from the museum, but just a little bit. Sounds selfish, right? The museum is next to Untermainbrücke in Frankfurt, it takes 10-15 minutes from Hauptbahnhof Main Station by walking. If you go Frankfurt, don’t skip DAM. Tschüss!


Architecture at METU

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.
