This weekend we’re off to Madrid, representing the Spanish Mixed National Team at Euros. We’ve been preparing for some time now, and that time is finally here!
This is a “Masters” tournament, which means there is an age requirement; +30 for women and +33 for men. This works out perfect for my partner and I as she is 31 and I am 34. We’re back to being the youngest on the team again!
I am proud to say that I work remotely for a company called Automattic, a company that prides itself on being distributed across the globe. I love my work for many different reasons, but in a nutshell, because I get to do something I enjoy from essentially anywhere I want to do it from.
Working remotely allows me to pack up my laptop and hit the road. I’ve been lucky enough to work from a number of different exotic locations, and I’ve even blogged about it here. Now, I’m embarking on a new journey that will really put these remote working skills to the test.
It’s always awkward when someone recognizes you, and calls you by name, but you haven’t the slightest who they are. Well, that’s not what happened here, I know who president Obama is, but I’ve never met him. However, I didn’t realize he knew me!
In all seriousness, I found this video because I came across this fun new website: https://youglish.com/
The site filters YouTube for real-life examples of how any word is pronounced. Naturally, one of the words I entered was my name, and I found this video. Try it out, especially good for non-native speakers.
