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

Me pathetic me.

Is it a bad sign when…

you are watching an interior design program on TV and know exactly where the designer bought half the stuff in the room?

you are a kind of small person and eat an entire carnitas burrito (and maybe a bag of chips and guacamole too) and you don’t even like pork?

you come amazingly close to throwing a remote control at a brand new HDTV when Fox goes out during an American Idol performance?

you are reading a book and it makes you think that maybe slavery wasn’t bad?

you are reading the same book, which takes place during the Civil War, and keep wondering who is going to win the war?

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.

    No way about the burrito! Finishing burritos doesn’t make you a glutton, it makes you a champion.
