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

I give up.

1. I think I might not take summer school. I was going to do it so I could graduate in November, but now it looks like there is only 1 class offered in the fall that I would take so I wouldn’t graduate until March anyways. This will free up two nights a week and give a little extra travel/novel writing/wedding planning, and give me $1700 extra.

2. No, I really don’t want to hang out with you and the girl you may be dating, especially since you never want to see me any other time anymore and especially since you are now making plans with her before me and have seemed to have replaced me completely and especially when you ask me at the last minute when you know it will take me 45 minutes to get there and therefore know I wouldn’t make it. Also please stop pointing out ex girlfriends to me because then all I do is wonder what she has that made you want to date her and not me.

3. I really want to quit my job now. (OK, so I already quit, but I want to stop going now).

4. I’ve taken to sleeping with my window wide open and my pillow on the window frame and my head kind of hanging outside. This is probably dangerous.

I give up.

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.
