I am by no means anywhere near a sports fanatic or even athletically gifted, but football, particularly the World Cup, I seem to always have an interest in. Most likely because of my upbringing, surrounded by a football-loving family, (or maybe it's just the players...*day dreams*), but whatever the case, football seems to be really the only sport I even-kind-of understand, and the World Cup just seems so magical to me, the way the entire world can come together to play the game. It makes me think that this is how we should settle our differences--a few penalty kicks, not war! But I digress...
As you can clearly see, I am a Germany girl, 100% due to being raised that way as well as my largely German background. I felt like going all out this past Sunday in support of my team, all the way down to the German flag coloured ribbons and makeup and...we won! I won't owe it entirely to my ensemble, but it made the experience extra rewarding knowing that I could spend the rest of my day (and go to class) all dressed up in honour of our team's win. Let me just say how truly sad it is to see how poorly people react to their team losing. It is just a game after all!
My Pikachu that I've had since my 5th birthday (he will be 15 this year!) matched perfectly for the occasion so I figured he'd better make a guest appearance, wouldn't you agree? And of course, it wouldn't be me unless I found some way to throw pink into the mix--thanks to my dad for finding this perfect T-shirt for me! Now all I need is to get my hands on a Manuel Neuer jersey... ♡
