The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure.

CAPES [something empowering] Holland will win World Cup. I will profess this until it happens, not because I’m overly optimistic, but because I’m not afraid to fail.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] The George and Dragon (World Cup headquarters) at 4am. It’s mine.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] Everyone has a routine that they follow at some point in their day. You don’t get into the shower and don’t know what to do…shampoo goes first, then conditioner, etc. When you’re sleep deprived, routine is thrown out the window. Yesterday, I woke up, hopped in the shower with socks still on. Then I proceeded to stand there not knowing what to do. A melt down. “What usually goes on in here? What am I doing here in the first place?” Eventually, I remembered my routine and proceeded. Weird morning.
