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

Black Pickle has a booboo.

1. I don’t know whether I am disappointed or relieved about that photo.

2. The other day I saw the fattest squirrel ever. It looked like a fuzzy ball with a tail. I wish I had had my camera.

3. Last night I stopped by a party at a coworker’s condo. It was seriously the most amazing condo ever: a ubercool lofty condo right overlooking the Chicago River and the city. I am in love with it. He had good food too. And a chocolate fountain, although I don’t think he keeps that up year round.

4. This morning I finished all of my Christmas shopping.

5. I found the most awesome dress ever that I plan to wear to Joe and Alina’s wedding!

6. Tonight I went to see Good Boys and True at Steppenwolf. It was a pretty good show, but not spectacular. And I never think anything ever has a good ending.

7. At the show there was a guy in front of me wearing a pink button down, but I am pretty sure he was there with his boyfriend.

8. The Steppenwolf garage is my newest enemy. Damn, tight driveway sharp cornered concrete monstrosity. 🙁 It wrecked my car 🙁 There is a big gash in the side of it now. This makes me sad 🙁

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.
