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

Men are jerks.

1. I think I get to walk down the aisle at Nad’s wedding with a guy who has a mohawk!!!! With my tattoo and his hair, that will be one priceless picture.

2. Some bitter woman just started talking to us at Starbucks last night. According to her, all men are jerks and if you don’t get married young it’s hopeless. Great…

3. To the anonymous person who searched my site last night: I don’t know whether to be flattered or creeped out, but I will choose to be flattered and assume that you were reaching out with compassion. If that is the case, then thank you, it made me smile and made me feel good to know someone cares…even if I have no clue who you are. (that said, who are you???)

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.
