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

Getting by.

1. I still haven’t heard whether I have November 30 off of work…I do however have a plane ticket for that morning 🙂

2. I am a sucker for guys in glasses. I am tracing this back to the fact that many guys will wear contacts during the day but then have on their glasses right before bed and in the morning, so it automatically gets your mind thinking about sleeping with him.

3. I am so incredibly screwed. But at least after this week I never will feel this way again 🙂

4. I really need to stop working and start seeing operas.

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 think I agree to the glasses thing. I never thought of that reason though. Makes sense.

    Perhaps glasses are the female equivalent of how guys feel when women wear men’s collared shirts. Someone should do a study…

    I said something to Sara about the glasses thing this weekend. She doesn’t wear hers often, but when she does… she’s got the geek-chique thing going on…

    Girl with glasses beats same girl without glasses every single time.
