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

Maybe this time.


What? You didn’t think I was going to skip a year of going to Vegas, did you??? Maybe I’ll win big this year…fourth times the charm…

I have managed to pack all my stuff into the tiniest suitcase. And for my “personal item” managed to fit both my camera and laptop into my normal purse. I kind of rock.

The last time I was in there, I had everything and nothing figured out. I keep trying to figure out what goes after that sentence. I’m not quite sure.

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.
