  • Since I ended High School I had trouble finding out what was my passion, my goal in life, my real destination. One Bachelor degree and 3 jobs later, i found it. I found the profession made for me; fun, interesting and challenging as I wanted. I could receive pressure from any boss, work 30 extra hours per month and have no weekends off for about two months, because my job wasn't about a selfish business man getting richer with my sacrifice. It was about working for my people, my culture, for the sake of art and entertaining, for the education of the spirit. And I realized how fulfilling it was for me and that I wanted to do that forever.

    However, 3 years of having that job, I found myself bored of living in my country and all the limitations that it represented. I dreamed everynight that I would take my office and its people with me and just travel the world until I find the special spot. And after some time thinking of a realistic solution, I decided to quit and travel overseas to continue my education. My last day of work was baaad and sad as hell, but at least the next day I took a flight to my new and fresh life in Spain.
    I lived there happily, really, and I discovered that my heart actually belongs to that country. I tried as hard as a could to find my dream job there but it didn't happen. Due to the circumstances, now I am in Turkey, still chasing that dream, still working on the future plan of living in a country that I actually love madly, having that awesome job again and having the lifestyle that I have always, always dreamed about, like kids dream about getting their favorite toys.

    It haven't been easy... not many people understand where we (the "dreamers") are heading, not many people understand what is the vision in our eyes, therefore not many people support us, which makes it even harder.
    But, I think I was born with some kind of rebel spirit and I have (more than ever) my goal between my eyes. Right now I am living the process of quiting on the person that I normally am, puting a pause to my habits, the things that I really enjoy doing. I am dealing with the fact that I am living a very ordinary life, repeating the same formula everyday just because I believe that it will take me where I am heading... my heaven on earth.
