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


The first 10 minutes of 24 made Val so damn excited. Finally, thought Val, someone does something smart and something will get resolved and end happily! Val should have known better. They took away any possibility of a nice resolution soon after 🙁 Did Val ever mention how much she hates 24???

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.

    I still find it astounding that Smallville is one of the best shows on TV.

    I just watched this week’s 24 last night. Go figure, government sponsored psychopath Jack Bauer storms YET ANOTHER embassy and gets caught by the numerous trained security guards!
    And where did he get a perfectly tailored suit on that short notice!?
