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

Desktops, dogs, debt, denial…

1. I finally got rid of my desktop computer. Every time I turned it on, it reminded me that there has been a time change so check my clock. Not because it’s broken, but because that is how often I turned it on. I’ve had it so eight years, so it was time to take it out of my room where it was just collecting dust

2. This is me as a Simpson’s character. I call my character “Val”

6. Nadia and I are psychic… Last week we were talking about how Rob Thomas sucks alone and needs to get back with Matchbox 20…the next day M20 releases a single. This week we were discussing how Trading Spaces completely disappeared…the next day they show a bunch of episodes. Next time I see her I am going to bring up the fact that a million dollars is never just bestowed on me for no reason.

7. I stole and hid the fake hair my mom was going to wear to Jen’s wedding.

8. I went from having $600 to -$100 in the span of a week. I cried. I am not cut out for investing of any kind.

9. Who puts back not just one, but TWO empty peanut butter jars into a cupboard???

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.
