Lisemiz Robert Kolej Hakkında – video

Yeni bir video ile karşınızdayız. Youtube’daki yorumlardan birinde Robert Kolej ile ilgili bilgi istemişti bir izleyicimiz. Biz de onun önerisi ile lisemizi anlattığımız bu videoyu çektik. Kendimizce alt başlıklara ayırdık.

  1. İngilizce Dil
  2. Öğretmenler
  3. Arkadaş Ortamı
  4. Eğitim Sistemi
  5. Sosyallik ve Aktiviteler
  6. Sonrası

Biz lisemizi kendi gözümüzden anlatmaya çalıştık. Tabii ki yüzeysel kaldığı yönler olmuştur, zaten videoda da dediğimiz gibi, sonrasında ekleyecek ve söylenecek ne kadar fazla şey olduğunu fark ettik, ama şimdilik bu kadar olsun.

Daha önce de bize Robert ile ilgili sorular sorulmuştu, en kısa şekilde böyle anlattık. Umarız beğenirsiniz!

 

Sevgiler,

How We Met Khaled Hosseini – New Youtube Video

Check out our latest video on Youtube! We talked about how we met the famous author Khaled Hosseini. We were at Skidmore College doing our Citizenship Project for our Honors Forum Minor. In Saratoga Springs we led a book discussion at a nursing home and it was a wonderful experience!

We have the Turkish version of this video too. You can find it in our Youtube Channel!

An Autodidact Freedom Searcher – Gorky

For the last couple of years, whenever I gazed over the shelves of the bookcase, this book attracted my attention. Finally I had a chance to read it: True Stories by Maxim Gorky.

Some books are fun and easy to read, while some give a different kind of literary satisfaction. Gorky’s stories are not difficult to read, but they also have that sweet taste of literature. It has been a long time since I read such a literary work and it felt good.

I just finished the book and I wanted to write a post about it. Characters are described quite well, I felt like I already know these people who lived more than a century ago. Some of the stories tell folk stories, some have epic sounds, but all have realistic approach to character descriptions, and they all tell the search for freedom. Many parts have long philosophical parts about freedom, meaning of life, and change in life styles as people move towards cities.

One of the parts that loved about this book is the beautiful imagery! Many of the stories have impressive descriptions of sea, wind and the appearance of the characters. Continue reading

“But we didn’t change places!” A vlog

We posted a new video, which actually not really new. It took a long time to edit this one, because, you know, summer…

Video editting takes time and energy. We have been postponing it. But why let them get old without being watched? 

So we are back to vlogging friends! 

Here is the video:

Tears of Love

The title sounds lame but wait until you read this post.

A few weeks ago we went to a florist.  The owner has turned his large backyard of his little house to a plant storage, almost a plant-house and now he cultivates seedlings of citrus, jasmine and bougainvilleas. He also sells pots of flowers, mostly to be planted, and a very small collection of succulents. Oyku and I love succulents and when we went near them we saw a different looking plant. We had seen that plant for the first time in our lives and before we could ask about it the owner told the name: ‘Tears of Love’. It seemed as if this was one of his favorites. He explained that the plant doesn’t have flowers, but when a little bud drops on the soil, a new plant grows from there.


We think this plant is a succulent or a type of cactus (forgive our lack of knowledge about succulents and cacti; we may not know much, but we are admirers) and propogation is possible with the small buds. We wonder Continue reading

Aşkın Göz Damlası

Biraz arabesk bir başlık oldu ama yazıyı okuyup öyle karar verin.

Geçenlerde bir çiçekçiye gittik, ama öyle buket çiçek satanlara değil. Bu çiçekçi limon fideleri, begonviller, yasemin fideleri ve daha birçok çeşit ağaç fidesi satıyordu. Tabii küçük saksı bitkileri de vardı. Öykü ve benim gözlerim kaktüsleri aradı, o sırada gözümüze şu güzel bitki çarptı, kaktüslerin tam yanında.


Biz sormadan oranın sahibi çiçeğin adını söyledi. ‘Aşkın göz damlası’. Bu adı sevgiyle söyledi adam, sanki bu çiçek Continue reading

Design is in love with emotions

Design is a good friend of technology. Computer brings them together and we see their collaboration in various forms, like web-design, architecture, fashion, visuals… However, design is in love with emotions; therefore, trends rise from the human effects like passion, love, envy, inadequacy and longing.

That is why there are two ends of development for design. As we move to a modern and space-like design trends with the help of technology, we also move towards the ethnic and rarest bits of culture that make us feel unique and safe, in a way. We want oriental elements with modern details.

These photos are from Elmaci Pazari in Gaziantep, Turkey. Since we were born in there, we always found the ethnic elements as the typical details of life. However, as we traveled outside this city for our education, first to Istanbul then to the US, we started to grasp the meaning of culture, and the depth of past. We realized that Continue reading
