Be Cruel to Me Because I'm a Fool for You

The titles is from an Arctic Monkey's song. It sums up my feeling on about everything right now. 

When I get stressed out, I make myself do a million little side projects to overwhelm myself with unimportant things, thus not totally freaking out over the one (or more) important thing(s). For example, stabbing objects (aka sewing pillows) during games helps me keep the profanity and crying (somewhat) down. It's soothing, therapeutic. And then I can scream bloody murder into the finished product.

You see, I'm a compartmentalizer. I put everything into their own little boxes in my mind and push them away so I don't have to think about it. In fact, I'm writing this post, from my Blackberry, while on the subway, to avoid my mind from wandering. I'm not crazy. I'm just extremely organized. I even have about 6 different Udinese mind boxes which are right now full to the brim, but allowing me to function normally.

Anyway, the point I'm getting at is that I need a distraction, so I am embarking on a project to allow me to focus. Make sense? Yes. Good. Let's continue.

Well, it's not really embarking. It's getting back on board with Missio for FIFA. I let that fall by the wayside, but not anymore! We're back, baby!

My next follow up post will be my new campaign. Please feel free to spread it amongst your friends, family, coworkers, peers, and loved ones. The new goal is to go to Zurich in October (turns out I have to go for surgery--tonsillectomy, nothing major, though apparently it's terrible for adult--so the trip has been postponed until the Fall). I assume by then I will be a household name in Zurich (I already am in Zug) and the Swiss polizei won't arrest me for handing out leaflets on Fifa Stra

I also plan to start a letter writing campaign to Sepp. My goal for the end of the year is to try my best to get him to acknowledge my existence. Yes, I really am that self centred, self involved, and egotistical.

Speaking of which, I am also making campaign buttons! They will be of poor quality and embarrassingly bad, but if you would like one, just email me (MISSIOforFIFA or tweet me (@sonjamissio). Also, if you do want one, please feel free to forward me a picture of you wearing it; it will make me smile so much my cheeks will hurt if I can convince enough people to wear one to make a full and proper collage.

Which, right now, would only consist of me and Wieners.

Anyway, like I said, I will post my updated campaign soon. Support and love is always appreciated. 



  1. Why would the world accept a girl from a country which plays soccer? for a post like the FIFA president. Aren't there much better candidatures than you?

  2. I've looked in to it. I'm pretty much the best option out there.
