Çare İkinci El!

Bu haftanın yeni videosunda ikinci el deneyimlerimi paylaştım.

İkinci el neler neler almadım ki… Kıyafetten çantaya, ev eşyasından tencereye birçok ihtiyacımı giderirken öncelikle ikinci el almak mümkün mü diye bakıyorum. Hatta Singapur’dayken ev bitkilerimi bile ikinci el olarak almıştım!

Bence gerçekten tüketimde yavaşlamamızı, eşyanın değerini daha iyi anlamamızı sağlayan bir süreç ikinci el alışveriş (ve tabii kardeşi özgür dönüşüm). O nedenle bu tür oluşumları sonuna dek destekliyorum. Videoda da kendi maceralarımı ve ikinci el alışverişin hangi mecralarda yapılabileceğini anlattım. Sizin tecrübelerinizi de dinlemek isterim, yorumlarda benimle ve diğer okuyucularla paylaşabilirsiniz.

Things I said Goodbye This Week

This week I said goodbye to my guitar, which has a sentimental value but has never been used for the last seven years. It’s been sitting at my parents’ house, sadly. I remember the first time I started to play when I was twelve; I had a very cheap guitar, but I was quite eager. I even filled my journal pages saying that it was my only friend. Ovsn853792er the years, however, after I saved some money and bought a Yamaha, I realized I wasn’t made for playing the guitar. I could write, or cook for hours for example, but I couldn’t stand guitar practice for more than an hour. So I slowly stopped playing it, and this photo is from 2009, when I almost never played the guitar.

I asked a friend of mine, who is a musician, what to do with it, and he said he can gladly buy it. As a matter of fact, he needed a classical guitar. I sold it for a symbolic price, after all, what matters is that he is going to use it far better than I did, and it will make the guitar happy.

 

The second thing I said goodbye to is eight books. Two of these, I realized I will never read them again. Two of them, I realized I had the original English copy of the book, and these img_0997are the translation. I never liked the other four anyway. So I put them on the Freecycle group of the university I’m working at,
and in a minute, I gave them all away.

We fill our homes with items saying “what if” to ourselves. What if I play the guitar again? What if I read this book again? What if my grandchildren want to read this book? We even imagine these items as our legacy, we see our grandchildren using them as a memory. In reality, no grandchildren will keep 500 books just because they inherited them. They will most likely keep the ones of utmost value. So I believe even if we keep some items as legacy, we must keep the best of them and in the best condition.

 

 

You go girl!

Oyuncu Shailene Woodley diyor ki: “Özellikle kullanılmış giysiler alıyorum. Ben bu gezegenin bir vatandaşı olacağım, ve sorumluluklarımı yerine getirip, doğayla sürekli savaşmaktansa onunla barışık yaşayacağım.”

Keşke Türkiye’de de ikinci el giyinme yaygınlaşsa!
