10 things you probably don’t know about me

I know it sounds silly but many people have given me this suggestion so I decided to give it a go. Besides, I think that it would be better if you knew more about the author of the articles you have been reading. 🙋🏻

These are 10 things you probably don’t know about me:

  1. I love to cook and to bake🥗 🥘🍰🍪
    • If I am up at 3 am in the morning and singing, that’s probably because I am making cookies.
  2. I speak 6 languages🗣👄
    • Yep, you read it right, six languages. Turkish, English, Russian, Kazakh, Polish, and Japanese.
  3. I have lived in 5 countries🇰🇿🇹🇷🇺🇸🇵🇱🇲🇲
    • Adventures of Zeyka: I was born Turkey, I grew up in Kazakhstan, graduated high school in Myanmar, and started college in Poland, lastly, continuing college in Kansas City, MO, USA.
  4. I am a cat person, & had 3 cats😻 😼 😽
    • They were the smartest beings that had the purest form of love I have come across.
  5. My dream is to launch a café + boutique 👯
    • I love cozy environments that give a feeling of sweet happiness and makes a use of a “me time” everyone tries to have. So, I want to make this feeling available for everyone in one place by presenting/pursuing  both of my passions in one place: Baking & Crafts
  6. I love riding bikes🚴🏻‍♀️ 🚴🏻
    • I once fell off a bike and hurt myself really bad, but I am too rebel to take lessons. I have biked in heavy rain, heavy sunshine, and heavy storm. The windier it gets the harder I press the pedals.
  7. I read nearly 100 pages/day👁👩🏻‍💻📚 📖
    • The more I read the more I need. I read at least 30 pages religiously. I read 3-5 pages from Russian, Kazakh, Polish, and Japanese books. And I read 10-20 pages of Business books. Add all the news and blogs.
  8. I launched my business last summer🎊
    • Hurraayyy! Basically I sell cross stitched and embroidered products, and other hand-made accessories on Etsy
  9. Which reminds me, I love crafting🎀
    • What is the one thing that would cheer you up no matter what? For me it’s crafting, I could do crafts all day long.  I wouldn’t mind spending hours in a hobby store.
  10. And lastly, I chose to wear hijab, no one forced me to. 👳🏻‍♀️
    • I know this is a sensitive topic, but I needed to make it clear for everyone who was wondering.

Living in a book

Today, for the first time in a long time, I went to a bookstore and got me some books. Since I moved to Oklahoma City I was dying to go to a bookstore, but never actually had the chance. So, after breakfast, I begged my dad to take me book-shopping, and he couldn’t reject his favorite daughter, he took me there 🙂 .

They say “never judge a book by its cover” but somehow, unintentionally it is what happens with most of us. We go to a bookstore and search for a book, whichever catches our attention the first/most, we approach for it. It was what happened with me too. I didn’t have a book list to search exactly for a book, I was only searching for a book that I could enjoy.

WordPress Anniversary

Some days ago, I have received an e-mail from WordPress celebrating our first anniversary. 🙂 I was shocked at first, knowing a year has passed since I have launched this blog. A big. damn. year. Not too long after, I was embarrassed of myself, knowing that I have only published around ten blog posts.

I had a dream you know, I launched this blog with passion,  with determination. Where the hell has that determination gone?

I set plans, do my tasks, and I give my best. But lately, I get the feeling of having A LOT on my plate. And big full plate of responsibilities and plans for myself dragged me down. But don’t get me wrong, not because my plate was full, but because I haven’t really adapted a new lifestyle for my plate standards. I can be in one place, but  I tried to be everywhere. I have 24 hours a day, I thought I had more. I can never be educated enough, I supposed my knowledge would suffice. Do you get this?

If you do, and if you feel the same sometimes, here’s a tip: you better change your lifestyle.

My Blogging Adventure

Hi everyone,

It is a lovely afternoon here in Warsaw but I’m stuck in my bed due to my sickness. Early in the morning I was utterly bored (I am not a home-person, really) and started thinking about things, small things, silly things. It was one of the times when I just stare at the ceiling and ask myself stupid questions. But strange enough, soon I realized one of the questions I asked myself wasn’t that stupid. It was: “Why am I not blogging anymore?”. I remembered all those times my mother was telling me to write again, or my friends asking me why I stopped. But then, a more serious question popped into my head: “Why did I start?”. And here’s why:

How do I spend my summer?

JUNE usually passes extremely fast. We get prepared for our vacations. We usually go to Turkey. This year was different though; we came to Turkey earlier than before. When we are in Turkey, we visit our relatives who are in different cities (which is awesome because I love road trips and being to and seeing other places) and spend some time with them. If we have some more time we go to a hotel to rest and have fun (because we love swimming, and there are wonderful aqua parks!).

Is summer my fave?

Summer is almost here. So, as always I was making my monthly plans and suddenly a question hit my mind –“is summer my favorite?” many of you would have asked the same or a similar question to yourselves, let’s dig it up then.

“Winter is a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put me in summer and I’ll be a happy snowman!” says Olaf, which revokes the feeling that each season is good in its own, but summer particularly is good-er.
