2. Last Thursday I met up with Chelsa and Stephanie to go see the Chicago Composers Orchestra’s first concert. It was a good performance and very interesting as it was all modern orchestral music by local composers. And one was based on the periodic table of elements. Beforehand we got Greek food. I had Orange Roughy in a tomato sauce.

3. Monday night I went to see Mat improv at the Playground. The show was funny but the guy in the first group held his mimed camera wrong. Afterwards we went to a bar with everyone and then he took my home on his motorcycle and I screamed the whole way especially when he took a speed bump at full speed and I was afraid that a car would come out of nowhere and hit us and that he would die because he wasn’t wearing a helmet.


4. Monday Chelsa was back at work so we went to the French Market for lunch. We went to Saigon Sisters and got Vietnamese sandwiches which was good because I’ve been watching the Great Food Truck Race on Food Network and there is a truck on there that sells them so it made me want to try them. I got the Porky which was made with pork belly and was delicious.

11. I watched Cabin Fever 2 the other day. Why was Rider Strong a top billed actor if he was only in it for the first 2 minutes? Why did it turn into a cartoon at the end? Why was it made?


12. I am debating between one of these cameras…thoughts?

16. I saw someone order an iced raspberry white mocha soy topped americano and then put cinnamon in it. Weirdest Starbucks order ever.


17. Until you work in a job where you send mass emails you don’t understand the extent to which people hit reply instead of forward.


18. I think I am a sleep cage fighter. Because the amount of bruises and cuts on my body when I wake up can’t be explained any other way.


19. I didn’t hear from Mat in a week and freaked out thinking that I would never hear from him again. And then I thought he might be dead. Or in jail. I don’t know where jail came from, that’s a new one for me.

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.
