1. I should be obese. I could not decide what to get for dinner so I ended up going both to White Castle (chicken rings and cheese sticks) and Wendy’s (double stack and fries). I have always wanted to do that but never have before. At least I stopped short of getting a blueberry doughnut at Dunkin Donuts.

2. You learn about the five paragraph essay in high school, then go to college and find out that is all crap. Apparently you learn “show don’t tell” in college and when you get to grad school, you find out that that’s crap too.

3. I can’t eat all this food.

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.
