Dreams Come True

Tam 2 hafta once cocukluk hayalimi gerceklestirmek icin uzun bir yolculuga ciktim. Fiziksel olarak ucusum da uzun bir yolculuktu fakat asil uzun yolculuk; tek yon biletimle, ne kadar kalacagimi ve beni nelerin bekledigini bilmeden ciktigim yolculuktu. Evet Los Angeles'a geldim. Cocukken hep bir Amerika hayalim vardi; sanirim hepimizin vardi. O zamanlar New York'ta imgeliyordum kendimi. Bir kac yil once New York'a 3 kere turistik yapmis oldugum seyahatler sonrasi, New York'un yasamak isteyebilecegim bir sehir olmadigini gormustum; cunku cok kaotik, cok yorucu ve cok yogundu. Yani dogup buyudugum ve yoruldugum Istanbul'dan halliceydi. 
I started a long journey exactly 2 weeks ago to make my childhood dream come true. Physically my flight was also so long but the real long journey is about that with my one way ticket without knowing how long i will stay and without knowing what is waiting for me here. Yes i came to Los Angeles. When i was a child, i had an American dream always; i think we all had. At those times, i used to image myself in New York. After my 3 touristic visits to New York few years ago, i discovered that New York isn't a place that i would like to live in; because it is so chaotic, so tiring and so crowded. I mean it was the same with Istanbul where i was born and raised.


4 sene once, ilk defa Amerika'nin Bati'sina seyahat ettim, ve iste o zaman Los Angeles'a hayran oldum; tam yasamak isteyecegim bir yerdi. Palmiyeler, her daim parildayan gunes, sahilleri, okyanustan gelen taze esinti, daglar, coller, sakin ve rahat hayat... Beni tamamen kendine asik etmisti. Ama tabi ki asik olup, direk turist vizesiyle atlayip gelemezdim. Macera severken, biraz da garantici oldugum icin; en kesin ve en rahat nasil giderim diyerek arastirmalara koyuldum. Gerekli her seyi bir sonraki yazimda paylasacagim; tam olarak nasil geldim, neler yaptim, hepsini.
4 years ago, i traveled to West Side of America first time, and that time i fell in love with Los Angeles;  it is a place that i literally would like to live in. Palm trees, always a shining sun, beaches, fresh wind from the ocean, mountains, deserts, chill and calm lifestyle... It made me fall in love. But of course, i couldn't come directly with my tourist visa just as i fell in love. Although i love adventure, because of being also a guarantee lover; i started searching how i can go easy and comfortably. I will explain the details of how i came here and what i did on my following post, all of them.
Okulumdan mezun oldugumda, staj yaptigim kurumsal bir firmada kadrolu olarak calismaya basladim. 1 sene staj, 1 sene kadrolu calistiktan sonra, Amerika hayalimi gerceklestirmek icin isten ayrildim. Fakat, hersey daha kesin degilken isten ayrildigim icin, cikan bir puruz sonrasi Amerika'ya o vakit gelemedim. Kendimi tekrar hazirlamaya calisirken, karsima gercekten guzel bir markadan, Puma'dan is teklifi cikti ve degerlendirmem gerek diye dusundugum icin ise basladim. Ama aklimin hep bi kosesinde Amerika duruyordu. 1.5 yil Puma'da calistiktan sonra, ruhumun asil istedigi seyi yapmak icin harekete gectim. Gercekten sevdigim bir sirketten ve sevdigim calisma arkadaslarimdan ayrilmak cok kolay olmadi. Ama risk almam gerekiyordu. Isten ciktiktan 1 hafta sonra Los Angeles'a geldim. Her sey bu kadar hizli gelismisti aslinda.
After i graduated from my university, i started working as full time in a corporate company which i also did my internship. After working as 1 year part time and 1 year full time, i quitted my job to make my American dream come true. However, before everything was not clear and exact, i'd quitted my job, with a small roughness came up and i couldn't come at that time. When i was trying to prepare myself again on that time, from a nice brand which Puma there was a nice opportunity which i felt like i needed to appraise, and i started working there. But America was always somewhere in my mind. After i worked 1.5 year at Puma, i took the action to do what my soul really wanted me to do. It wasn't easy that leaving the company and colleagues that you really love. But i needed to take the risk. 1 week after i left the company, i came to Los Angeles. Everything happened so quickly..
Ayrica, kendimi bu sefer bu olaya cok kaptirmamistim. Tum islerimi halletmeme ragmen, neredeyse son gune kadar calistim. Aklimin tamamini Amerika'ya kaptirmadim. "Olursa olur, olmazsa zaten mutluyum." dedim hep kendi kendime. Akisina birakmanin nasil oldugunu ben bu donemde ogrendim.
Additionally, i didn't lose myself in this process this time. Even i dealed with all needed things for US, i worked almost to the most last day in Turkey. I didn't lose my mind to America. "If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, i'm already happy here." i told myself all the time. I learned how to go with flow in this period.
Her sey o kadar hizli gelisti ki inanin ben de takip edemedim. Ama ogrendigim tek bir sey vardi; hayallerden asla vazgecmemeli. Er ya da gec, evren onu bizim icin hayata geciriyor. Biraz calisip akisina birakinca her seyin istediginiz gibi olacagina inanin.
Everything happened so quickly believe me i even couldn't follow it. But there was only one thing that i learned; we shouldn't give up on our dreams. Sooner or later, universe makes it come true. Believe that everything that you wanted going to be happened when you go with flow and work for it.
Bir sonraki yazimda buraya gelmeden once neler yaptim, nasil geldim, tum asamalarini yazacagim. Hayallerinizi asla birakmayin!
I'm going to tell you more about how i came, what i did for it, every steps before i came here on my following post. Do not give up on your dreams, never!
