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

Back in Chicago

I am back in Chicago! I left my New York hotel yesterday and boarded a Southwest flight back home. Let me tell you, I have never confused a cab driver more! Southwest just started flying out of LaGuardia I believe July 1. So when I told him to drop me at the Southwest gate he first pulled over at Northwest and then tried to convince me that I was wrong. He wouldn’t believe me that I was flying Southwest! Luckily he drove around and we were able to find the gate!

I was also very very hungover at this point. Just sayin’.

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.
