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


This was my Saturday…

1. Much needed sleeping in until 10.


2. Cleaning
I finally hung up my bridesmaids dress from Nadia’s wedding. It’s been rolled up in a clump on the floor since I took it off well over a month ago. I did not find the two remote controls that disappeared well over a month ago 🙁


3. Sandbar
It’s rare that anyone I know plans to do anything in my neck of the woods. So when Andy said his friends were playing at a bar that’s literally 2 blocks from my house, I invited myself to go along. So we headed over to the Sandbar, a Brookfield tiki bar to watch Professor John and Nicole and some other people I don’t know play.

I had 2 yummy drinks: a fuzzy monkey and a martini with lots of different juices.

The music was very good.

Professor John is either going to hire me as a roadie (but I won’t get paid) or a cleaning lady (but I have to shower with him)

When we first got there, there was a couple who danced to almost every song…despite the fact that they were the only ones dancing and despite the fact that there was no actual dance floor. I want to be in a relationship like that.

At midnight the rockabillies all take over the Sandbar. Seriously, I’ve never seen so many people dressed so perfectly 50s together in one place in my life.

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.
