June: Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Eight more done on my list of 100 things to do in 2007!


10. See a roller derby bout
Hell’s Belles block the Fury from victory 54-50!
Double Crossers crush Manic Attackers 92-17!
and I was there!


11. Have a picnic
Picnicked at Ravinia with Nadia!

16. At least 2 Chicago summer festivals
Printers Row and Pride Parade! I don’t know if either is technically a festival, but I choose to believe they were.

I saw the Hearty Boys at both:

65. Finish my masters
An A in tech writing and now only ONE MORE CLASS TO GO!


66. Develop a good “5 year plan”


70. Develop a financial plan
Put most of my savings in mutual fund-like things.

Started putting the rest of my shorter-term savings in a higher-percentage online savings account.

Still need to close out my other bank account and move that money around, and once I move and figure out my expenses I will be able to put together a budget.


85. Bake once a month
Yummy raspberry lemon bars!

98. Go to the Taste of Chicago
Twice so far…on opening day!

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.
