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


I finally just did it and signed up to take a photography class. Maybe I will finally learn what the heck I am doing and stop pretending.

I made a list of the people I know who are getting married still. The list includes 2 Joshs, 2 Jens, 2 Robs, and 3 Joes.

I made a list today of why I am never going to have a good relationship. There are three points. I can’t share them.

I finally ordered books of my photos from Amsterdam and the hot dog eating contest. I ordered from blurb. I haven’t printed any photos in a while. It’s weird not to. I have a file I’ve been keeping for a year titled “pics to be printed” There are a few thousand in it.

I have 2 VCRs and they are both broken. To be fair, only one is broken and I just am too inept at using VCRs to figure out how the other one works.

I wrote a blog post this morning knowing full well that I could never ever post what it said. Despite thinking about what I wrote all day I tried to make a stpid mistake tonight.

I finally used my Mac at work today. I need to figure out how to use it. I didn’t realize how dependent I am on right clicking.

My sister is throwing a tea party and she wants everyone to wear hats. I am planning on wearing a sweater dress…so maybe I will wear a winter hat with it.

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.
