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

I’m so old! Musings on my 25th birthday.

So, 10 minutes left of my 25th birthday! Too bad I am sick 🙁 I left early from work Monday and stayed home Tuesday because of a sore throat, fever, and general ickyness. I feel better than I did, but my nose is all stuffed and I’m coughing like crazy.

I went to lunch with Matt and Matt at Panera for soup to celebrate and after dinner I went out with MattyK to a restaurant where he had a hamburger and I had a piece of chocolate cake. yumyum. He insisted that the waitress would think i was retarded if I not only just ate the cake but also requested crayons to color with. 🙁 I just wanted to make a pretty drawring. While driving to the restaurant Matt originally decided to go to, we passed a different one he thought we might like. I told him that anywhere we go is fine. He immediately pulled into a McDonalds parking lot. Of course, it was only to turn around, but it was funny. hehe. When I was a kid my parents would always ask me what I wanted for my special birthday dinner. I always wanted McNuggets. We even went on a big trip with all my friends to the bug Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonalds once. After cake we went through a weird car wash that had big blue rag things that looked like Muppets. YAY. my real party will be on Saturday night where I swear there will be people with names other than Matt.

ew, my nose ring is snotty.

The end.

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.
