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

I’ll be funny, but you won’t laugh.

Last night was my first class of Humor 101 (OK, so maybe a little more advanced than that, as it is a 400 level course). Basically I am going to learn to be funny, but not necessarily haha funny. I already learned that it is OK to make fun of people who are “better” than you and that you can make fun of people who are in the same “group” as you.

It’s my last class of my Masters program and that is kind of bittersweet. I can’t wait to not have school anymore, but at the same time, since my program was so odd and I only took one class for 3 hours a week, I never really felt as if I really went to DePaul. Like I took classes there but really wasn’t a student there. I miss being a student.


It’s always nice when you find out someone else had the same opinion of someone that you do.

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.
