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

I sometimes have to go to bed early because I want to daydream before I sleep.

1. Heather has reminded me of a few things I forgot to write. Like that on my birthday on my way out she bound out of her room singing the Disney Happy Birthday song! Or that the cake I made for her had her favorite homemade frosting that is all butter and powdered sugar and deliciousness 🙂

2. I kind of need to get away and am considering taking a massive road trip in April…suggestions on where to go? Right now I am kind of debating between visiting someone who I’ve met three times or visiting someone who I’ve met for three hours…

3. Man vs. Food Live was on this week! Actually it was pretty boring, but the Sheas were hosting it. That was odd and awesome.

4. I’ve been highly distracted lately. I don’t know if this is really how I feel or if I’ve convinced myself of it. It probably doesn’t matter.

5. I am also considering dying my hair red again. I am always considering that. Thoughts?

6. Couples Snuggies exist. Who wants to share with me?

7. “It’s like in high school when you’d try to run into someone in the hallway. Except replace ‘hallway’ with ‘internet.'”

8. Sometimes you don’t sleep well one night but instead of going to bed early the next day you convince a friend to come over at 11:30pm and drink wine until 2:30am…

9. Typically January is my worst work month of the year. But subscriptions are on sale! With little drama! Having more control over the content made everything so much easier.

10. Me: Want to go to Vegas tomorrow? Him: I can’t. Me: OK, how about Amsterdam?

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.

    also, for quite a while I wasn’t sure if you were naturally blond or redheaded, so I say go for it
