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

Depressedness of the day.

1. You know what can make you feel like shit? Having to listen to someone ramble to you about how there are girls you think are interesting and have good personalities and they are the ones you want to date, then there are the girls who are kind of duds who you don’t want to date but would sleep with for a bit because why not. I always thought I at least had a good personality, but I guess not.

2. Someone jumped/fell off of my building this morning.

3. I feel useless.

4. I do not think bacon fed bacon is real.

5. Last night was wine tasting night and I got a 6 but half of those points were from cheating. Then I went to MKs and had way too much more wine and had to stay until 2am before I could drive home. I am fucking tired.

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.

    people who say things like whoever from #1 are lacking in both personality and worthiness of anyone’s respect

    Someone who would say #1 is a dumbass with no self esteem who needs to make themselves feel better for treating good people like shit. Period. They are a waste of space and not worthy of your concern.

    I agree with you both.
    But to be fair it wasn’t someone who was trying to hot on me or anything like that, and the comments were in no way directed at me. It was a friend of a friend and he was just talking. He actually thought I ould agree with him as surely there would be “guys you’ve met who aren’t interesting but you’d still sleep with them.”
    It was just given some history I have had the remarks just kind of pissed me off.

    I take it you don’t like Ladder Theory. I think this is the second time I was going to link to it here, but the site is still down.
    The wikipedia entry isn’t written very well.
