It’s that time again, soccer time. Every four years, when it’s time for the FIFA World Cup, I get lost in the world of soccer. I don’t follow the games during the year, but when it comes to the World Cup, I’m watching.
It started this morning, at 11:00 a.m. and I couldn’t watch the whole thing. I watched parts, the very beginning and the first goal in my house, then the rest during lunch. We were lucky we went to a Mexican restaurant, were they were obviously playing the soccer game on the TV. It was hard to pay attention to the game between eating my burrito and the waiters standing in front of the TV, but I saw Russia make three of the five goals that won them the match.
While we were at lunch my mom mentioned that they lost me until the end of the World Cup, which is partly true. Maybe I can figure out a way to make time for people, there’s a little time in between matches or maybe people can join me while I’m watching the World Cup, I’ve gotten them to do it before. In 2006 I got my family to let me bring a wireless TV to the beach to watch the matches, now I don’t even need that, I can watch it on my phone.
But don’t worry, not all posts will be about the World Cup, I have other stuff coming this summer.
I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
