Here comes some motivation to push you on the road

You are not happy with your life. Everything goes wrong for a while. Your relations suck, you started to lose your faith on people and your job. You feel sad and disappointed for almost everything. You hate the city you are living in. And the office is way more disgusting for you. Recently you just saw a guy giving a video interview on internet and telling how he was feeling the same and then left everything behind for travelling around the world with no money. You hate him too. For sure you want to do the same. Or maybe a similar thing. It’s sure that you have some own ideas of disappearing. You want to make a change! It’s the right time for it, you feel it. More than feeling, you are absolutely sure about it. But there is something keeps you in the comfort zone. You scared of just leaving without looking at your back. Because you never know what the hell is gonna happen on the road. But hey, then you realize that it’s the point right? I mean it could be no different than a paid touristic tour otherwise. But no! A big no to touristic tours. You want something else. You need to develop yourself and learn things instead of going to Europe and taking pictures of buildings or sculptures. All you need is a little bit motivation. And here is your motivation from me. I just made a list of movies which will cure your problem. Greatest 15 road trip movies ever made! Watch these and you will be on the road as soon as possible. If it doesn’t work, feel free to contact with me. I will use some other techniques to push you out of the doorsill.

Uzun zamand覺r hayat覺n覺zdan memnun deilsiniz. Her ey ters gidiyor. Ak hayat覺n覺z bombok. 襤inize ve arkadalar覺n覺za olan inanc覺n覺z覺 kaybettiniz. zg羹n ve k覺r覺lm覺 hissediyorsunuz. Herkes tam bir hayal k覺r覺kl覺覺 gibi. Kimseye g羹veniniz kalmad覺. Ofisten, evinizden hatta yaad覺覺n覺z ehirden bile nefret ediyorsunuz. Ge癟en g羹n internette gezerken bir adam g繹r羹yorsunuz. Bir video r繹portajda sizin gibi hisler i癟indeyken nas覺l her eyi b覺rak覺p d羹nyay覺 birikim yapmadan gezdiini anlat覺yor. Ondan da nefret ediyorsunuz. Bulsan覺z az覺na odunla vuracaks覺n覺z hatta. Sizin de benzer bir hayaliniz var 癟羹nk羹. Ama yapam覺yorsunuz, ya da yapm覺yorsunuz ve hangisi olduunu bile d羹羹nmek istemiyorsunuz. Biraz cesaret sorunu var. Burada elde etmek i癟in y覺llard覺r urat覺覺n覺z onca eye s覺rt覺n覺z覺 d繹n羹p onca bilinmezlie dalmak pek mant覺kl覺 gelmiyor. u an i癟inde bulunduunuz hayat覺 yaamaya devam etmek de pek mant覺kl覺 gelmiyor ger癟i. al覺t覺覺n覺z irketteki m羹teri temsilcisi k覺z arada Barcelona’ya, Amsterdam’a turlara falan kat覺l覺yor iten izin al覺p. Belki de biraz uzaklamak, onun gibi turlara kat覺lmak laz覺m diyorsunuz ama yok. Olmuyor. 襤stediiniz bu deil. Siz yeni bir hayata ihtiya癟 duyuyorsunuz ve bu yeni hayat Avrupa’da heykel fotoraflar覺 癟ekip ayn覺 yere d繹nmek deil. Siz tamamen kendinizi eitecek, yepyeni bir d羹nya d羹zeni kurmak istiyorsunuz. Belli ki biraz motivasyona ihtiyac覺n覺z var. Asl覺nda siz bu yolculua 癟覺kars覺n覺z ama sadece biraz cesaretlenmek ya da deyimi yerindeyse gazlanmak laz覺m. O gaz覺 size u videodaki nefret ettiiniz herif vericek belki. 襤te size 癟am sak覺z覺 gezgin armaan覺 k羹癟羹k bir motivasyon deposu. Bu filmleri izleyip yola 癟覺kamazsan覺z sorununuz b羹y羹k demektir. Endie etmeyin. Bu vaziyette devreye ben giricem :) Siz 繹nce u filmleri bi izleyin hele. 襤te en gaz 15 yol filmi. imdiden iyi seyirler:

Local life sucks!

20140716_175239

Shit! Who says it’s expensive to travel around the world? You know what? I had much more lower living expenses comparing to living in Istanbul. Everything is super expensive in this damn city. And the quality of life for the price you pay is not a good deal. After living free like a bird 3 years with no bills and renting or gas prices it’s a bit harsh to worry about all these stupid things. I don’t want to work for these stupid papers! Seriously! Some stuff in local life doesn’t make any sense to me. Sometimes I just want to burn all these papers and work for riding roller coasters or doing skydiving instead of paying stupid bills.

3 sene boyunca ne kira 繹dedim, ne elektrik, ne internet, ne dijital tv, ne doalgaz ne de su… Araba vergisi, bak覺m覺, benzin paras覺, lastii, muayenesi gibi kayg覺lar覺m da yoktu. Vergi 繹demek gibi ilerim de… Sadece 繹zg羹rl羹k vard覺, 癟al覺mak ve elenmek vard覺. Hayat 癟ok daha temizdi. Yal覺nd覺. Daha anlaml覺yd覺. ok basit bir sistem kurmutum. Tasar覺m yap覺yordum ve kar覺l覺覺nda para al覺yordum. Bazen ajanslar paray覺 banka hesab覺ma yat覺rmak istediler. Yok ki dediimde bana inanmakta g羹癟羹k 癟ektiler. Yok kardeim yok ite, elden ver bankayla m覺 dodunuz? Daha eski ve ilkel bir sistemle ya覺yordum ben ama her ey 癟ok daha kolayd覺 sanki. Yoldan geldim geleli hala bir kredi kart覺 edinmedim. Edinmeyi de d羹羹nm羹yorum. Neyse konumuz bu deil, konu u ki d羹nyay覺 gezmeyi 癟ok pahal覺 zanneden bizler, asl覺nda Istanbul’da yaayarak 癟ok daha fazla para harc覺yoruz. Cidden bak. Bana burada yaamak inan覺lmaz pahal覺 geliyor ve bu durum can覺m覺 癟ok yak覺yor. Yak覺nda ad覺m cimriye de 癟覺kar. Asya, Latin Amerika, Afrika ve Balkanlarda gittiim 羹lkelerin b羹y羹k 癟ounluu yaam masraflar覺 olarak T羹rkiye’den 癟ok daha hesapl覺yd覺. stelik burada onca paray覺 繹demenize kar覺n 癟ok iyi bir yaam standart覺 sahibi olam覺yorsunuz. ok 癟ok zengin olmak gerek bu ehirde sanki. Buradaki k覺yt覺r覺k apartman dairesine 繹dediiniz kiraya baka 羹lkelerde nas覺l yerlerde yaabileceinizi bir bilseniz dudaklar覺n覺z u癟uklar herhalde. Lokal hayat覺n gerektirdii bu rutin fatura ilerine al覺mam zaman ald覺 ve bu al覺ma s羹reci biraz can覺m覺 ac覺tt覺, sizlerle paylamak istedim. Bi doalgaz saati nas覺l 400 tl oluyor yahu! (Seiko falan herhalde)

Webinar with Onsekiz Mart University

webinar
For the first time in my life I have done a webinar. We discuss and talk design and made an online presentation to students of anakkale Onsekiz Mart University. It was quite different experience comparing to making a real life presentation. In the beginning It was very hard to speak by yourself to the screen and talk without seeing anybody. Anyway I get used to it fastly and completed it, students liked it quite a lot. There was a session where they gave a online score to my performance which is ended up quite good but I felt a bit weird while I was waiting for the votings since students can be quite honest when they are just online :)

anakkale Onsekiz Mart niversitesiyle bug羹n hayat覺mda ilk kez bir webinar yapt覺k. Ben evimden, 繹rencilerse okuldan, yurttan ve evlerinden baland覺lar. 2 saat konutuk tart覺t覺k g羹zel vakit ge癟irdik. Organizasyonu d羹zenleyen okul y繹netimine ve Zafer Karaday覺 hocam覺za 癟ok teekk羹r ederim.

Derse gelin :)

I’m giving classes in Kadir Has University Advertising Department. Here comes my video invitation to students of Kadir Has University.Special thanks toBurak Erba for voice over. See you in the classroom. :)

Kadir Has niversitesinde verdiim ders i癟in 繹rencilere davet videosu haz覺rlad覺m. At繹lyede g繹r羹羹r羹z :)
