New Year – not too much of a big deal

I was thinking about the whole perception of “The New Year”, and “new beginnings”. I was thinking about the notion behind writing New Year’s resolutions, and why we do that. I live in a country that doesn’t really make a huge fuss about celebrating the New Year. It’s considered a Christian holiday, and as a […]

New year, nothing new

So the new year started yesterday. And so well it started: by a terrorist attack in Istanbul. Isn’t it great? the way the new year starts? We’re all hungover the next day, unable to do anything, but cope with the disastrous news of the expansion of terrorism through out Europe and the Middle East. And […]

New Year’s Resolutions

Three years ago I wrote a list of 25 new year’s resolution. Most of them were juvenile as I was younger and less experienced than today. I don’t usually write resolutions and keep them. Though maybe, this year I should, hang them somewhere where I can see them every single day, and try to keep […]

This is the end

The whole concept of time is in our hands. The end of the year might be tomorrow or next month, yet we insist it should be today. I’m drinking tonight because I need a drink not because I want to toast something that I cannot truly trust. “You don’t trust yourself anymore,”one claims, but truth is, […]

New Year’s Resolutions

Few years ago I used to write lists of New Year’s Resolutions, inspired by Bridget Jones’s Diary, simply because it was witty and funny. I used to make this kind of list every year for the sake of the fun I can have while writing it. For two years now I’ve started to think that writing […]
