I have attended to Authentic Movement lectures in ÇDD (Çağdaş Drama Derneği/ Creative Drama Association) where I also had my drama courses in Üsküdar. The lecturer was a very pretty, friendly Finnish lady, Sanna. She became a close friend for me during six weeks. Well... What is this Authentic Movement, then? I can't tell... I still have lots of things to learn about it. Besides, I don't have any photos to describe it. Then, you have to google it, I suppose. :)) But let me give you a clue: it's a sort of dance. But it's different from other dance categories. It is usually taught to students who are to become performers, actors/ actresses. It's about discovering the movements and movement resources of your body. In a way, it's a good way of relaxation. That's all.
By the way, Sanna, together with her friends, is on a project and you can follow it from this link:
Both the lessons at university and drama course made me so busy. I haven't complained about my teaching trainee sessions in Kadıköy Anatolian High School. Yet honestly, I've gained some experiences there about teaching. Most of my students were having enjoyable time when I was teaching. I may think about subscribing the video of my teaching day. (Ohhh, a disaster as I was ill and can't properly talk because of my coughs)
Anyway, the graduation party times come so soon. First, we had a ball together our lecturers in Sabancı Öğretmenevi. It was a lovely place. Then, we did have another ball (without teachers hihihihiiii) in Suada (Galatasaray Island) which was quite luxurious place. In fact, you can see all the photos by clicking on my profile on facebook. I'm publishing only fews here.
I still can't believe how time has passed. Those nights we had our graduation balls were unforgettable. My dresses, make- ups... Everything was on the way. By the way, I was e- mailing my CV to various private schools but receiving no reply. I took lots of examinations which are necessary for my career such as UDS, KPDS, ALES (these are necessary for attending to a master program) and finally KPSS (this one is for proving my proficiency in teaching. Ohh noo! Why did I study hard to get my diploma then if the government hesitates to employ me without this proficiency certificate?). I took all these exams without studying of course. Did I have any time to study? This term was good for me to be familiarized with all these examinations. Next year I will be attending on same exams again. So... Was everything finished? Not yet... There came the "major" day! The real and the only one graduation day! The others were just balls, parties. But, as you see below, on 8th of July, I was offcially a graduated girl!.
