It has been 6 days since I came to
Everything looks funny to me. I look around as I am in zoo. When you get on the metro or bus in US you just keep quite and wait for your stop right? Here, everybody talks. About the new bridge being built, or the new government, or somebody’s husband cheating on wife or somebody graduating, buying a new car, anything, and anybody and always in an excited way. Wow, I realize I am such a Turk…
My mom says I am changed; she blames me by being too judgmental. I know I am but she does not see that it is a big change for me to be here in
Oh, the best thing, I have been constantly eating yummy food. As I said, it is the main purpose in life. I eat variety of things but I limit the amount.
My skin feels better, it feels and react to organics and nature right away.
Before I came. I wanted to go to bosphorus and taxim so bad, now I feel so good with my family I don t even wanna bother .funny.
I am not stressing out myself as I used to, I can’t find the reason I am just relaxed. No complaints. I didn’t miss anything not one thing about States yet. Just a few people. I want to go back to complete my education but there are also very good opportunities here I’d like to consider, we’ll see. It is early to say something.
One bad thing, people smoke a lot, that bothers me. Especially my parents smoke a lot and think it is normal. I am worried about their health.
There are things I am worried about in family that I don t want to get into now. Because I am happy to be here now, I don’t want to get depressed by thinking about issues that I can’t solve.
