Let’s Find Ourselves

We have stressful times in our lives, things we can’t or don’t want to handle or we just feel down without any actual problem. Yet some very simple beauties of the world, even those in front of our eyes, can make us feel better about life and help us find ourselves. I don’t know about you, but I am grateful. You can either join in this journey to discover yourself, or sit in the corner. Either way, you’re a piece of art, a crucial piece of this world and you should never forget this. Art Though I can’t explain this in a scientific way, art always makes me feel good about myself. It opens a new door towards an inexplicable universe, away from our teenage world full of technology and heartbreak. Despite being such a complex…

Inspire (me please)

Good morning! This will be more of a diary entry than a blog post, but I am pretty sure I’m not the only one feeling this way. I am not as productive as I used to be/ want to be. I’m not writing as much as I wanted to, my journal is basically empty. I don’t draw anymore. I was planning on getting a canvas and painting outside, yet I barely even touch my Moleskin sketchbook. I change my mind all the time, now I started to regret chopping my hair off while looking at my old Instagram pictures with my long hair. I sometimes get homesick, so I devour half a pack of Turkish delight, imagining that I’m sitting near the Bosphorus having green tea at the House Café. The weather is getting colder, and…

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay

Currently in the airport in Strasbourg waiting to go back to London. With a massive hunger for exploration. Veins throbbing with creativity. Sometimes it’s okay to be fed up. It’s okay to wake up in the morning and not want to move. It’s okay to stare at the ceiling searching for something to live for. It’s okay to feel down. It’s okay to lack productivity. It’s okay to feel as if you’re not using your creativity to all its extents. It’s okay to binge. It’s okay to not go to the gym. It’s okay to not want to socialise. It’s okay to be broken. It’s okay not to be okay. I have been putting so much pressure on myself these past months that I barely had any time to do the things I actually love.…

The Art Freak Has Found Her Home

Hello smart girls, smart boys and all those who wish to escape from societies redundant adjectives! You know how your phone gets charged and energised when you plug it? I get charged and energised by art. Since I am in London, I have decided to go to at least one gallery/museum each week. This week, I went to Tate Modern! When I see a painting and observe the material and how it’s used, the brush strokes and their density, the symbols it has and all the emotion and activism emerging from it: I feel alive. I love how there are people/artists sketching right from the artwork instead of googling it. They get the actual vibe from it, they see it with all it’s flaws that make it perfect. I love drawing as well but I…

Help! The Leaves Are Falling!

-As a farewell to summer, here is an illustrated scene from one of my favourite movies- Post soundtrack only for you (click!) I write this post all tucked up in blankets, just a few minutes after sipping my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the year, from the South Bank of London accompanied by the heavenly charismatic voice of Frank Sinatra. I hear the shattering sound of the leaves outside, almost as if they can’t wait to spread the news; the very news that the birds have been postponing to announce -while they were building a warmer nest. This feeling of coziness and the warmth of the blankets feel like a long lost lover that if real, would never let go ever again. As much as I don’t know how other fellows would react to this very important announcement that…
