Step 0.2

So while making this blog, I was considering backtracking to memorialize my trip through Central/Eastern Europe. But then I realized that that would make me want to show everyone about my escapades during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, then my trip to Costa Rica/Panama, which would then want to make me talk about Ireland. In conclusion, I would look like some pretentious elitist (possibly true but not something one should announce), so I have opted, instead, to scribe about current events - to me, don't worry, the ticker is about as news-y as I get - and to hopefully share some interesting or comical insights to which I bear witness.

Also this is good practice to get into a habit of consistency.

Today, I want to commemorate an amazingly historical event: US men's soccer showed up to play. And beat Spain. I'm clearly not an avid sports watcher, but it's one of those things you can talk about later. This is probably how I would classify myself: if I'm going to watch a sport, I'll cheer on my local teams when they play. If they aren't playing, who cares? Not me. Anyway, when Spain plays all other teams, viva la roja! Ditto for USA. But when they go head to head, my nationalism gets the best of me. Like in the Olympics. Or with KU. Another analogy, if KSU makes it into any big games, I will cheer for them as long as it isn't against KU. I still identify locally. Anyway, very exciting. Plus I could taunt and trash talk some co-workers, ALWAYS a bonus.

Coming soon! Valerie and I explore Chicago in the shortest amount of time that would be logical for visiting a large city - oh well, our track record isn't perfect anyway - to start the official visa process. After a relatively simplistic application process, an annoyingly long waiting time to hear the results, and UNUSUALLY suspicious system problems, this is a tangible step forward! I'm providing future readers ample time to prepare to read a retroactive entry about this event; so, heads up.

Keep it real.
Real osom.


  1. first of all, i would like to echo - chupate esto, espana!!!! i'm not even going to use the correct accent mark on the n. because am AMERICAN and that's now WE SPELL!!

    secondly, yay for chicago!!! i can't wait!!

  2. the correct wayt it's "because I am" not "because am". Please, rewrite it again .P

    Congrats Catalina for your new blog! :)
