A FaceTime Chat With My Sister: World Cup, Part II

· #gamedayoutfit ·

November 13, 2016

Parkstar is awake in New Guinea. We’ve exchanged some entertaining Snaps and I’ve caught the world up via Snapchat (just_ferriss). I’ve FaceTimed with my sweet parents and even from 15 hours away, I still feel so close to them. My only mission now is to connect with my brother so we can watch the game together via FaceTime while I live stream it from my iPad to my TV via Apple TV. While he watches it on TV. Did I mention while we FaceTime?

Whew, technology is an amazing thing.

In case you missed it.

My sister is on the women’s under-20 US national team and they are currently playing in FIFA’s U20 Women’s World Cup 2016. We had an honorary World Cup pre-game FaceTime chat, which took place 6:16-7:15 p.m. EST time on Nov. 12, 2016 in America and 9:16-10:15 a.m. Nov. 13, 2016 in New Guinea.

Here are the highlights of our conversational events, part II:

  • “Dad wrote a motivational quote in all of my cards. This one says, ‘The best thing someone can do is tell me I can’t do something. Thanks for the coal, I’ll light the fire!'” Then we laughed.
  • “Mom got me a token with a guardian angel to watch over me, look how cute it is.” *Puts token to camera* “I keep it in my soccer bag.”
  • Park has a daily devotions book she reads. Her favorite chapters are “Enjoy The Journey” and “Quitters Never Win And Winners Never Quit.” But her favorite, favorite is “Perseverance.”
  • For World Cup, the jersey numbers only go up to 21 so she can’t be 22, but she’s not letting that kill her vibe! “Everyone was like, ‘take 20!’ But I was like I can’t do that, that would have been disrespectful to 22 because it’s still in the twenties, you know? So I went with 2.”
  • Park: “Yessssssssss, it’s game day eve.”
    Me: “I wish I had game day eve.”
    Park: “When I wake up tomorrow it’s gonna be game day. I’ve prayed a lot.”

And so she woke up on Game Day and put on her Game Day outfit. And it was the most epic thing ever.
