Choosing Figs | Neurotic as Hell | A Travel, Lifestyle, and Life List Blog

Awesomeness. (Or, Karma is a fucking bitch.)

1.Karma is a fucking bitch. How do i turn mine around? I seriously fucked mine up somewhere along the way…

2.
I want to be in the Mammoth Men. 12 male wedding photographers taking a bus road trip together? And their blogience (I totally just made up that word) gets to take a poll and choose what they do each day? It’s awesome. I want to do this. I don’t think a bus full of women would have the same results.

But in any case I am seriously addicted to this website.

3.
I was watching the Simpsons and wasn’t sure if the weird lady talking was part of the episode or if I had accidentally turned it on audio transcribe. Turns out I had accidentally turned on audio transcribe (where a voice describes everything that is happening for blind people…I wonder if blind people would know the Simpsons is a cartoon?). And from now on I am only watching it that way. When a lady in a normal voice says “Homer shakes the bicycle out of his butt” it makes the episode ten-times funnier.


4.
I am in no way into Star Wars…but I kind of want to take lightsaber combat lessons.

5.
I watched From Russia with Love, but Bond movies aren’t as fun to watch when you are by yourself. I didn’t really pay attention to any of it. Seriously, someone has to watch all of these with me.

6.
I have decided I need an iPhone. I used to say that it seemed like it was good for everything but the phone part. But I am afraid of talking on phones so I guess that doesn’t matter.

(Really though, anyone who has one is the reception on it good? The reason I hate talking on phones is because I am deaf and have trouble hearing what people say.)

My real reasoning for the iPhone is so that I can blog from anywhere. The world doesn’t want that.

7.
I kind of really want to eat this.

8.
It is snowing. I wish it was not snowing.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    Normally I’m all like woah yeah everyone should have an iphone because it’s awesome… but today mine crashed, and froze for like six hours, at which point it was neither a phone or an alarm clock…so I was two hours late to work. And if I hadn’t miraculously woken up just before my store actually opened, no one would have called to tell me I slept in and was fired. FU iphone.
