Hello guys! It's been a week now since I came to Istanbul. If you're following me, then you know that I had an Istanbul experience last summer as well, again for my internship. Now I'm working in a company as sales intern.
|I came to Istanbul from Ankara the first day of July in the afternoon by plane since it takes only one hour.|

"It was a lovely day, in fact but it raised a question mark in my mind. Is this really what I wanted, to be a plaza person?"
Next day, I woke up at eight o'clock and headed off to work. Unfortunately, I am terrible at adaptation. I cannot find my ways, discover easy things, etc. So I got late a bit to work at the first day but that was okay. I joined to HR orientation and spent the day learning office and meeting my co-workers. I suppose, the first days are always the most exhausting ones. We went out to lunch together with interns and our mentors. It was a lovely day, in fact but it raised a question mark in my mind. Is this really what I wanted, to be a plaza person? My mentor said that what he always wanted during his university years was to grab a cup of coffee in his lunch breaks, you know, wearing a suit etc. Then he asked us whether we feel the same right now. And I said, not really. In fact, I was being polite. I never and ever wanted to be someone like he described. I know what he was talking about, nearly all of my classmates dreams themselves within such an image and I always hated it. I believe that there is definitely much more things to do in this world. Do not misunderstand me, of course you can drink a cup of coffee in your lunch breaks but what I'm trying to say, people should really, really stop putting themselves into an image and imitate people on magazines. I think that we must start thinking about what we can do for this world, for any living creature and we should not stuck in plazas.

Addition to work, I am looking for jobs to work on weekends because as I mentioned you in my previous post, I am attending to Erasmus program and going to Porto next term so it is good idea to save money by working in my gap times. My friends suggested me to apply an agent for such photography, acting etc. I've recently applied to an agent and they took photos of me. I got them today, so I'll be sharing the photos and experience asap.
