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

Dear Jeff…WTF?

Sometimes Jeff gets really drunk on July 4 and drunk dials me in the middle of the night.

Sometimes he then asks two days later what he had said because he doesn’t even remember calling.

Sometimes I am an ass and decide that instead of telling him what the message said I’d just post it to my blog. 🙂

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.
