Hi from Germany,
Starting Again to Publish Daily on September 1!
After a two-week break following the 30-day challenge, I’m back in daily writing. In the last two weeks, I was a bit busy with the preparations for traveling to Germany, moving my house, and trying to complete and solve some personal and work-related issues.
As it was a bit chaotic and hectic, I felt like I was not at the point of sharing what I was going through and some advice. I think I was feeling imposter syndrome.
Starting today, I’ll be sending daily updates, weekly wraps, and more. I’m even planning to start a new newsletter about Humanitarian Sector.
Selim in Bochum, Germany
This week, on Monday, I came to Dusseldorf, Germany. On Tuesday, I started my 2 years Master's Degree Programme in International Humanitarian Action with the Intensive Program on “Localization and Humanitarian Action“ at Ruhr-Bochum University together with +100 students from 10 different universities and 15+ speakers. This semester, I’ll be in Bochum, and next semester, I’ll be moving to Uppsala University, Sweden. Here is my learning path;

What I’m doing?
As I mentioned above, I’m in the Intensive Program at NOHA. NOHA Network on Humanitarian Action is an international association of universities that aims to enhance professionalism in the humanitarian sector through education & training, research & publications, and projects.

What I’m reading?
As I was coming to Germany, I wanted to read something related. I was reading Goethe’s book The Sorrows of Young Werther the last week.
Although I generally read non-fiction books and mostly on personal development, it was good to read a novel and change my routine a bit.
"The Sorrows of Young Werther" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, published in 1774, tells the tragic story of Werther, an impassioned young man who falls deeply in love with a married woman, leading to his ultimate downfall.
The novel explores the dangers of obsessive love, the conflict between individual desire and societal norms, the complexity of human emotions, and the romantic idealization of nature. It has had a significant impact on Romantic literature, emphasizing individualism, emotion, and self-exploration in literary works.
What I’m listening?
I also listened to Tonny Robbin’s book NOTES FROM A FRIEND on Storytel. You can find the links below if you are interested.Click here to listen for free in Turkish.

What about running, or health and fitness?

As you can see above, in the last two weeks, I lost my pace of running regularly and doing workouts. I’m planning to start my running tomorrow.
In the meantime, I followed Dan Go’s newsletter and posts on LinkedIn which I find really useful. You can check the links below to follow and read more;
