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


I hate having this thing and feeling like I can never really write the truth about everything.

I had a crappy day.

I know it was nothing big but it still made me feel bad.

I know I take things way too hard and can’t get over it.

But whatever.

Feel free to IM me or email me or call me to ask what happened.

It’s a stupid story. And you’ll probably think I’m stupid for letting it get to me.

But whatever.

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.
