When I logged into Spotify, this morning to get ready for Fanon, I clicked on a setlist I came across on the first page: Fresh Finds Türkiye. 🎶 It was a nice way to get ready for the day since Beliz, who is the sixth musician on the list, is a friend of mine from college, Berk Çavdar, who is the seventh musician on the list, is who we get to know closely on Stan with his new single Kusursuz Fırtına. Should I thank the universe or my friends for the art they're making?
🌪 I'm pretty excited, as you may have guessed: I've binge-listened Beliz's Uçmasak da Yükseğiz and Berk's newest single today—and today I've realized that the joy of having the chance to know the artist of a song that I would admire if I heard it by chance without knowing whose song it was comes also means my friends' dreams do come true.
🎮 Video games: I think it's time to dive into a reality I've long admired. The inspiration for most interdisciplinary interests in my life came from video games—so here I present you an article about how games such as The Sims 2, Emily is Away, Life is Strange, Age of Empires, and Civilization V mean in my life.
📹 #ICouldn'tHelpButWonder: I grew up hearing Carrie Bradshaw's questions. So the name of our new channel would, of course, refer to it—referring to the famous phrase "I couldn't help but wonder," the column explores what's on our minds as we scroll through social media. It's, luckily, from the words of Sena Albayrak.
