Four years ago, I was in an 8-5 job. I just finished my VA assignment and looking for a VA gig. At the same time, the World Cup is everywhere on the Internet and the news.
Four years later, I’m happy to be in a different state: I’m now a full-time VA, catching up with my Online Marketing Club and VA 101 assignments (I’m trying!).
This time, the World Cup in on – and I have totally fallen in love with soccer.
Many people do not like the sport because it takes a while (90 minutes – and added extra times in case no goal was done) to make a score. Others say they are already asleep once a player scores a goal. But for millions of fans across the globe, soccer is in their blood. Indeed, the game takes patience, hard work, skills, and a lot of dedication.
As it was my first time to get to know the game, I relied on history as to who is the best team to cheer for: Brazil. Unfortunately, they missed to win their important games. It took me half a day to sink in Brazil’s 7-1 loss to Germany. Oh well, like what they say in Filipino, “bilog ang bola” (the ball is always round).
I am glad I kept myself updated in the matches, the players (eherm, ok I’m admitting here that Julio Cesar of Brazil is my #mancrushWorldCup), the fans (they are simply creative and passionate), and the game through the official site of FIFA, Facebook, Mashable, Twitter, and Google’s Doodles.
Four years ago, I was just trying to find my way to become a VA.
Four years later, I am now a full-time VA.
Hhmm, I wonder where will I be in four years’ time.
An online marketer?
Chief Marketing Officer of the next best thing that ever happened in the universe?
A best-selling author?
The cutest marathon finisher?
Wow, I’m excited for the next four years.
