Winter is coming...

The fall comes... Summer is over... I do not know what you think but for me when the fall comes, it is the end of an era, and the fall makes me feel melancholic. Also, nature is like that in the fall, it prepares itself for the winter. Leaves leave trees, birds migrate to other places, maybe the nature prepares itself for loneliness which it lives in cold and dark times in the winter.
On the other hand, sitting with a warm blanket, fresh coffee on the table, rainy sunday afternoon, talking with people you love, watching your favourite movie for 232th times... These are the bright sides of the fall and you never find these little joyful things in summer. There are times you have to pass and there are times you have to live. The fall is both. Maybe its duty is to make you miss summer, maybe to make you forget about it. However, it is certain that it is a part of the life...
I hope you can meet nice people in the fall and learn to enjoy from little things in your lives...

Potere, Dovere, Volere

"Potere, Dovere e Volere" sono i tre verbi molti importanti perché usiamo questi verbi spesso.

The Station Agent...

Today, I'd like to write my views about a movie "The Station Agent". (Spoiler Alert!!! If you want to watch movie without knowing anything, jump to paragraph two!!!) The movie starts with a little man Finbar McBride (Peter Dinklage) and his close friend Henry (Paul Benjamin). They run a model train store and Fin assembles model trains back of the store, both Fin and Henry are train enthusiastics. Unfortunately, Henry dies suddenly and he inherits a depot near railroad in Newfoundland, New Jersey. Then, Fin has to move that depot and he starts to live there. Because he is kind of introverted, he does not have many friends. Also, people laugh at him when they see him because he is little. Maybe that is one of the reasons he does not have friends. Anyhow, after he moves to that place, he meets Joe (Bobby Cannavale), he sells coffee and food in front of the depot. Joe has a personality which is totally different from Fin's. He is talkative, amusing etc. After a few days they become friends. Of course, I almost forget that there is Olivia (Patricia Clarkson) who is recently divorced and she escapes from city life, she paints and does many things to get over his son's death. (Not to give too much spoiler) These three suddenly become friends, they share special time together and help each other to get over their own pains and problems.
If you do not like movies reflecting the real features of daily life, importance of friendships, you may not like this movie. However, if you want to know how important real friendships are, how people's behaviour towards you shapes your attitude, how people can be happy without complexity of city life, how physical appearance is not important when you try to know a person, how important if you find your soulmates, you should not let them go, how valuable help of your friends is, how precious the true friendship is...
I think that is enough to describe this amazing movie, I also admit that I'm amazed by the performance of the actors although this movie has a relatively small cast. If you are at home on a rainy fall day, you can watch this movie peacefully when you drink your coffee and fresh smell of rain comes from outside...

Riccidoro e I tre orsi

"Riccidoro e i tre orsi" é un libro che ho letto. Ho letto questo libro perché voglio imparare la grammatica e il vocabulario dell'italiano :)


American Indians...

"Tatanka Iyotake" or well-known to people as "Sitting Bull" is the first American Indian I know. After I watched Pocahontas, Native American culture and life style became one of the areas I'm interested in and I met "Sitting Bull" and the whole Native Americans in that way.
Their life is so simple and so peaceful that I'm looking for that kind of life style in these days, because in today's world life is getting harder and harder and whatever you do, you may not be appreciated by other people and your work can go waste. We should not make our lives more complicated, we should be happy with little things but most of the people can find it ridiculous and insane. What I'm trying to say in these paragraph is Native Americans know how to live in a good environment that is simple and all tribe members need each other's work. In a tribe all work is worthy and deserve to be appreciated.
Their respect to the nature is one the things I adopted from them. They are human beings with great respect to the environment they live in and sadly we forgot to respect to the nature today, and this situation will not be good for our next generations.
Apart from these, I like their clothes, handcrafts, stuff they use in their daily life and their spiritual thoughts and acts, because they are interesting for me and I try to understand their looking angle to life which does not aim "gaining something or possesing things".
If you are interested in Native American culture and life style you can find many books available, but I highly recommend you to check "American Indians by Robert J. Moore" if you want a pictorial journey to Native American culture. I finish my article with an old saying from Blackfoot:
"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."

Claudio Baglioni e "Con Voi"

Ascolto la canzone di Claudio Baglioni che é "Con Voi" e io consiglio Gli di ascoltare Claudio Baglioni perché lui ha una voce grande e magnifica.



Python is the first programming I learned at my freshman year in college. At first, it seemed to me a little bit complicated because I did not have any programming experience before. However, after I met different kinds of programming languages such as C, C++, Java, VHDL, MIPS, Haskell and many others, I realized that Python is much more simpler and easier to use than any others. What makes Python such a great language? I can give many reasons to that question:
First of all, Python forces you to use indentation when you write programs and this is especially useful for novice programmers like me :) Because using indentation when you write programs makes your much more readable and understandable.
Secondly, you can write sequential programs in Python like in any other imperative language but more that that Python has "class" feature like C++ and Java and this enables you to write Object-oriented programs. That's why, Python is another useful language not only for C programmers also for C++ and Java programmers used to doing OOP sytle programming.
Thirdly, Python has rich libraries and you can find many useful built-in functions and this feature is a time saver when you deal with large projects because you do not have write functions from scratch in this way.
(I could give many other reasons but) Finally, Python has dynamic data types. What does it mean? It means that you do not have to tell Python interpreter the type of variable. You can use it as a string, integer, float, character etc. You cannot do that in C or C++, because you have to declare the data type of a varible before you use it. In Python, a variable can act like any data type and you can play with it in which way you want! Unfortunately, this feature makes Python programs slower than corresponding C and C++ ones, but computers are fast enough today, so if you write small programs, it is not even worth to talk about speed differences :)
If you are a novice programmer, I highly recommend you to use Python to enter programming world. You will see that it is worth to use...

Chris De(de) Burgh

My father told me about him. It was the time when I was 16 or 17 I guess, and I thought that "Hmm, why don't I find anything else new to listen?" and it was the time I started to listen James Blunt, One Republic, Take That etc. When I was watching James Blunt's "Carry You Home" music video, I said to my father that "Dad, did you check this song of James Blunt before?" (He is the person who watched "You're Beautiful" before anyone else in the family), he said "No", and he added "If you like these kind of songs, I know a singer called Chris De Burgh, his voice is softer than him(James Blunt), but full of emotion". This conversation made me curious about him and I remember that when I found the first chance to go online, I checked a song of Chris De Burgh. The rest? The rest is unexplainable. When I listen "A Woman's Heart", the song made me so happy and sad at the same time. The song was full of emotion. There was a beautiful background music,(first time in my life I figured out that an electro-guitar could be used in such a good way in a love song), an amazing voice, all lyrics were telling you something about relationships, women, love, life... I kept listening "Forevermore", "Carry Me(Like a Fire in Your Heart)", "Borderline", "The Last of Moments of The Dawn", "When I Think of You"... To sum up, I was fascinated by his songs. This was the beginning of an era.
After all, Chris De Burgh became one of my favourite artists, I bought several albums of him, his songs outnumbers songs of any artists in my playlist. I introduced him to my sis, and made her like him :)
Chris De Burgh's voice is such a voice that it can calm anybody, and I do not think about that he can yell at a person, he has such a voice. When I first heard that voice, it made me think that "That voice must belong to a noble man!!!" and if you read his life from somewhere you can see that, he lived in a castle once...  
If you love "love songs", he is one of the guys you have to give a shot...
We all admire you Chris De Burgh, I hope you will produce amazing songs "Forevermore"...
(p.s Dede means grandfather in Turkish. That's why, the title is Chris De(de) Burgh, because he looks like a nice grandpa :)

I'm back

I think it has been a while for me to write something here, but I admit that I did not have enough time as I was struggling with my school :) However, after this post I will start to write something new, I always want to choose different topics from different fields (as you can see from my earlier posts), this situation will continue and I will try as much as possible to write different things. I think next week I will write something about music, but I do not know what to write yet, so see you next week...
