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 … Continue reading My existential crisis goes on forever…
I finally made it to my home after a few weeks of traveling. I didn’t feel tired at all during the trip but jumping into work directly after I got back made me feel a bit dizzy 🙂 I have been writing and reading a lot for ProjectPost30 to be able to keep it in … Continue reading Feeling good but still dizzy
Whole week I hopped from one city to another in Europe. After Arnhem and Amsterdam, I paid a visit to Bonn, Cologne, and Brussels. Brussels was my final stop before I head back to Istanbul. In all these places I spent amazing time with my friends, colleagues and met fantastic people for the first time. … Continue reading Let’s go “Au Soleil” !
I have been traveling for a week already. I started with my hometown Ankara, and now I am writing this post to you on a train going from Amsterdam to Cologne. I have been to Arnhem at the weekend for the first time in my life. It is a small city located in the East … Continue reading Traveling did me good!
This past week was totally crazy. Not only because I had to work for various 8th March related events but also because I launched my personal project: ProjectPost30. I can’t explain how excited I am about this project. I have been meeting wonderful women from all over Istanbul. I hope to launch the English version … Continue reading After all the razzle-dazzle…
I can’t believe we are already in March. Time goes by so fast and today you are reading the vol. 10 of MWSs. March -in my petite world- means the “Month of Women”. I hate to think that there is just one particular day to remember women’s issues or mothers,fayda, children etc. However, I believe … Continue reading Hard work paid off !
Last Sunday midnight I posted a message on my FB wall. I wanted to know whether any women in my circle decided to change career in their 30s. Next day, I posted the same message on my LinkedIn and Twitter accounts too. Then I started watching the magic emerging. All of a sudden messages and … Continue reading A new project coming up
Last week I managed to put some distance between myself and the daily politics and focused more on love (Philia mostly :)) . It did me good. Work has been busy, but I finally finished one of the online courses that I had been taking on Gender Equality. After I’d signed up for the UDP’s … Continue reading Gender mainstreaming & MWSs
Last week passed with a plethora of stress. Mainly because, each day, we see more intolerant measures taken in every aspect of the daily life in our country. Academy is one of the most wounded fields. Around five thousand academics from 112 universities have been discharged by 5 Statutory Decrees since September 2016.

I am obsessed with online courses these days. In the past, I used to enroll a class and take a few modules, get bored eventually and then quit. It was my main cycle for quite a long time. But starting from this year, I finally managed to discipline myself. Last month I took a course … Continue reading Craving for learning and MWS
