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

My Christmas List

Dear Santa,

For Christmas I would like a boy who will…

… take me to see the Christmas trees at the Museum of Science and Industry (it’s my favorite).

… drive around with me to look for ridiculously decorated houses.

… sip hot chocolate with me.

… make snowmen with me.

… cuddle with me to keep me warm.

I will leave out homemade cookies and a Pepsi under my tree for you. Thank 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.

    in addition to the cookies and such, you should swear to never try to knee/punch him in the crotch
