But I must not complain.. I do make sure that I get my vacation time, by working hard during the week and going to the beach on the weekends. My next getaway is tomorrow and I can't wait for it.
I will join my parents and family friend for a hopefully wonderful 4 days. The only thing missing at that time will be "my baby".
Even though the thought of cold waters running through my body after staying under the sun for hours makes me excited, I still wish he was with me, holding my hand, brushing my hair with his fingers..
Our time will come-I know.
I love you baby! I will be daydreaming of you..
I have it with me everywhere I go.. (as you can see on the "rain" post)

Shocked and soaked, me and "m" we ran to the side. We wondered through shops, hoping we would find an umbrella. An umbrella in the middle of july? Of course not an easy brake.
But at last we went into a store which sells really cute things, which I will post later on, called karinca, "ant".. Purple of course.. We got 2 purple umbrellas.. When I look at this picture all I want to say is "I'm singing in the rain" :)
No matter the rain.. No matter the grey skies.. Running under the rain, laughing-probably because we were shocked was a lot of fun.
Summer rain, autumn rain.. Its just rain.. And one must never forget that rain can be fun too.. If you have a purple umbrella then you can have more fun than others..
My grandfathers has alzheimers.. so I know what going to the hospital and having to spend weeks there means.. I know how hospitals work, with all their paperwork and all the prescriptions and all the different doctors you have to see.. all this crammed in your mind, it is more than easy to forget something..
I saw this incredibly handy little folder.. It is made just for your medical reasons, has a pad which you can note your next doctors appointment.. has sections which you can file your bills and other reports you got back.. everything you need to keep you medical history organized..
I know this will be handy because my mom does all the organizing for my family and also for both my grandma and grandpa.. She has different folders for the each of us.. Even if we have to go to see a doctor about anything, she has the folder with her, and has all the answers to what the doctor might ask..
My point is.. even though I started out by talking about the elderly, you don't need to be old to keep your medical history organized.. Having everything in order can make life easier, especially in emergencies.
So here is my suggestion: take a look at it..
Looking for little things that make life fun and more interesting.. A little pen that allows you to write little notes on a wine or champagne bottle..
A mirror, that allows you to see whats happening behind you.. Is your boss about to come and check your work- close Facebook.. or is that new cute guy/girl about to pass you by..

I took a class named 'Death and Dying" at GWU. The name was so interesting and I had heard so much about the course that I had to try it as a Psychology major. We learned so much about death' what it is' how it is depicted since we are young till the day we actually die, what stages are there of dying, euthanasia, about Elizabeth Kübler-Ross, suicide, abortion and its history and many more that I could list but will take too long.
Kübler-Ross (1926-2004) was one thing that caught my attention through out the course. I never could forget her, how she explained death and stages of dying. One quote that stuck with me was:
"It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth, and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, that we will begin to live each day to the fullest; as if it was the only one we had."
How right is she? we all know that there is an end to the life we live, but we never acknowledge the life we do live. We always take things for granted, the small or the big. We know how to be happy, as each of us had times that we were happy, but we never get stuck at that moment but instead we try to move on to the next- without fully living it.
Our time will be up one day.. who knows when.. some might say God decides it, some might just say traffic and a monster running over you will, or even just a friendly fire on a war zone. But one thing is sure that we all die someday. Either we are 1 hrs old or we are 100' our time will too come.
So what are we doing to make sure we have no regrets when that time comes, to say that we have fully lived our lives, laughed enough, loved enough, helped enough, and even asked for help enough.We need other people to survive, to grow and to die. Having someone with you while lying on your death bed, or being born to your mothers arms and giving your last breath, there should always be a loved when holding your hand.
am i getting too depressive, didn't mean too. Was actually just wondering about the loved ones we lost in my family and the ones we are getting ready to lose.
I hope each one of us, you, me, your loved ones, my loved ones- we all have a happy life, a fully lived one, with no regrets that would hold us back from giving our last breath.
We went to Cesme, Izmir- in the Aegian Region of Turkey. A wonderful place to relax, have fun, surf and many more things to do. We stayed at Alacati, incredible little town; little streets filled with cafes, restaurants and little shops.
When you enter the water, you have soft sand under your toes, cold water trying to reach your body, a little shiver, then your in..
I think everyone who visits Cesme would fall in love and just not wanna leave. - that's what happened to me. I didn't want to come back a desk full of paperwork waiting for me.
Anyways... Cesme, Cesme.. made all of happy..
We had such a good time, dined well, drank lots of alcohol, tanned-even though we didn't try, and swam more than we wanted.
Had a blast I must say. Had a wonderful time with my "baby". can't wait for our next get away.. hope its not too far..
I travel around, I love to read and write.. I love to take pictures. I love movies and TV shows..Listening to music is a daily routine..
Love, I am in love with Love.. You must believe in love, even if it might bring you heartache.. still that's the experience you need inorder to appreciate "the one".
I found "the one".. very special, very kind, and a very handsome boy.. you'll hear more about him later.. not now..
I hear some asking, "what is this blog about?" - it's about everything and anything.. it's about life itself and what it might bring..
so, Welcome, and I hope you enjoy it..
