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

Since Wednesday

1. It was probably a bad idea to go to MattyK’s when he invited me over for a bbq at 10pm the night before my second day of work. Ah well. I took the HIGHWAY (there and back, be proud!) so it didn’t take tootoo long to get there, and I was good and left at about 11:30, which was when I said I should leave. I didn’t even eat or anything, just hung out with him and Hood and Chris (who I told could get into my pjs, but alas he didn’t (yes I was wearing pajamas (parenthesis within parenthesis within parenthesis, woohoo!)))

2. I gave a dollar to a guy in the el station because he played some kick-ass violin and made it a little bit better that I was standing 3 inches from a puddle of piss.

3. It is really scary when a guy in a subway tunnel knocks on the window of your moving train.

4. Quote from my professor: “I don’t know why I can’t tell my dad that I smoked. I mean, I told him that I did pot…I probably shouldn’t have told YOU.”

5. Every time I watch Trading Spaces the format is different. What the hell?

6. Saturday Night Live did a Takeru Kobayashi cartoon! (alas, I cannot find it online 🙁 )

7. I found the sandal I thought I left at my ex-boyfriend’s apartment a year ago.

8. I just saw a craft show on TLC that showed you how to make a condom case. True story.

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.
