2. On Road trips
So I don’t think anyone is going to go with me anyways :(, but I plotted a map today of all the places that are possibilities for my awesome Illinois road trip this summer. Maybe someone will join me???


3. On Dreams
The other night I had two different dreams. I normally don’t post dreams, but I also don’t normally have two I remember so clearly in one night and I also normally can’t so clearly and obviously interpret my dreams either. So deal…

In dream one I decided to park my car near one of those strip malls near Oak Brook and skate to work. I was skating to my old job even though I knew I should be going the other way to Lyric. But I figured that I would turn around once I got there. As I was skating I ran into another guy who was skating as well. He was kind of cute and we started holding hands while we skated. Then we got to this building and I decided to hide, hoping he’d try to find me. But then he just kept on skating and disappeared. And I felt so stupid that I had hidden. I chased after him though and found him with a bunch of other people. And he was with a friend of mine and I got mad that he never introduced us before because this guy was just my type. And then he told me why and it kind of made sense.

In dream number two I was in my room and my dad came in to ask me if I had fed my birds. I didn’t have my own bird but some “training birds” that he’d found in a box in the basement. I hadn’t fed the birds, in fact I hadn’t fed them, or taken the cover off their cage in a week. I took the cover off and a couple of them were dead and the rest were savage for food and dying. I was afraid to open the cage so I started pouring some food into the cage and poured some water over them.

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.

    Roadtrips are fun. Now if only I had actual vacation time… 😛
