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.

Just give me a reason, little bit’s enough

“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how” says Nietzsche, German philosopher, cultural critic, poet, and philologist. Most of the time what we do is of no importance, but why we do it is priceless. Just like that, an abstract why is more significant than a tangible what.

 

To have a why is to have a reason, or a goal. It is to have a star you watch every night, the star that you want to raise your hand and touch, but is too far away. Then, it seems impossible to reach that star, but how can you say the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon?

A Vague Business Concept You Didn’t Realize You Need to Know

Have you ever put together an IKEA furniture? Well, I have. It is as much complicated as it is fun. There is this pile of boxes, instructions, and images. You attach little pieces one by one going step by step. And, if you do everything correctly, those little pieces become a household appliance that will be a very good use to you. On the contrary, if you do it wrong, you will have to break down all those pieces apart like jenga woods and go to step one, tail chase.

 

This is what business is like. Except, you don’t get any instructions, tools, images, or a help guide. Continue reading “A Vague Business Concept You Didn’t Realize You Need to Know”

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.

Teen Entrepreneur’s Ice Cream Business

For a long time I’ve been told that I can’t do things, because I was “just a kid” or I was “not old enough”. These comments that I was getting lead me to a point where I gave up on myself. Until recently, I was googling about entrepreneurs I found a site where there was written stories of teen entrepreneurs. All of them was pretty interesting but I was totally amazed when I read Grace Connor’s.

20 Inspirational Quotes

Hi everybody!

I get super excited when I come across some breath-taking, deep, and powering inspirational quotes. And some of you may know, like many people I am sort of addicted to reading and sharing inspirational quotes. 🙂

What is inspiration? Why do we feel inspired when we read a saying of (mostly) famous people? I believe that we have it in ourselves, it is like a trigger. And when we read a quote, it makes us come clean to the idea that something IS in fact reachable and only obstacle is us.

Experience does the job. If a person is experienced it means he/she knows something, something that can be taught. Only then, we listen to their sayings, or we care about their opinions. Because they have been there and done all that. For you. We learn by making mistakes. They have done the mistakes and giving us counsels and advice so that we don’t need to make those mistakes.

There are thousands and thousands of inspirational quotes. It’s the thing about inspiration. We can get inspired by even a word sometimes, if said by the right person. 🙂

Here I gathered for you 20 inspirational quotes from successful and well-known people.

You must have come across many of them but it is always a good option to remind ourselves.

Enjoy:
