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


1. I liked Windows Live Mail because it let me apply a pink color scheme to the interface. I like Windows Live Mail even more because they changed the pink color scheme to be even pinker!!! Before it was more reddish, now it’s true pink!

2. I like berries and cream Starbursts because they remind me of Bonkers, one of the best candies ever.

3. I’ve turned into a single sneezer. I miss being a double sneezer 🙁

4. How my money is doing after two months:
Citibank Savings Account: up $55
Mutual Funds: Down $650

5. Number four made me cry for a while.

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’m glad someone likes the new color schemes. I personally like the true blue of Hotmail so much more than the anemic blue of livemail that I refuse to upgrade. I occasionally upgrade to do a search, then downgrade again.

    Yeah. I only like the pink one because it’s…well…pink.
    I have a different account that I use for business/school purposes and I do the same thing..kept it at normal hotmail and then occassionally upgrade/downgrade when I need to search 🙂
