I think I lost track of time. Everything has started going too fast around me, and I hate this feeling that I will not be able to catch up with them all.
Maybe I don’t have to catch up with everyone and everything; I don’t know really.
I want to focus on what I really want to do in my life, not what I need to do. For instance, ProjectPost30. Recently an interview with me about the project has been published on one of the most popular digital marketing websites here in Turkey. And that was awesome!
While I was answering the questions I couldn’t help but think that it is really what I want to focus on right on, meeting new people and helping them spread their voices.
It has been only a month and the reactions so far have been more tremendous than I ever possibly think of. With this motivation I now have too many more ideas to implement. But at the point, I still need to make a living with other projects to be able to support this one 🙂
I am pretty sure the time will come, it always does. So I need to be patient and keep going till I see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is time for me to be patient.
Thanks again for listening my existential crisis. Now it is time for my weekly recommendations:
Book: The Geopolitics of Emotion
As an international relations enthusiast, I was fascinated by the author Dominique Moisi’s brilliant view that the world is nowadays more likely to be shaped by the ‘clash of emotions’ rather than “civilizations” presented by Huntington.
Moisi focuses on three primary emotions that shape today’s world and international relations: Fear, humiliation, and hope.
Moisi argues that Western societies are dominated by a fear of the ‘other’ and by the loss of their national identity and purpose. For Muslims and Arabs, the combination of historical grievances, exclusion from the economic boon of globalization, and civil and religious warfare has created a culture of humiliation that is quickly devolving into a culture of hatred. And as the West and the Muslim world lock horns, Asia, able to concentrate on building a better future, has come to embody ‘the culture of hope.’
TV Series: Doctor Foster
After I had watched this tv show, I was telling a close of mine that “From now on, I will never and ever whine about my life.”
This is the story of a successful doctor who suspects her husband having an affair. She follows the clues that take her to the end, but in the meantime, her only problem is not limited to her marriage.
Place to be: Minoa Bookstore and Cafe I have recently discovered this authentic and independent cafe located in Akaretler, Beşiktaş. Minoa offers its customers a great experience of a warm atmosphere while sipping their drinks and enjoying their delicious food.
You may need to make reservation sometimes since it gets crowded especially on the weekends.
This German word is most closely translated into English as “new objectivity.” With Sachlichkeit, we can separate one’s opinions or idea from the person expressing that opinion.It is also the name of German art that arose during the 1920s as a reaction against expressionism.
