Short Reddish Hair

The question is, “what aren’t we going to do?”

1. I needed a change, so I chopped off all my hair. Well, about 12 inches of it. This morning it was down to my ribs and now it hangs just past my chin. I was going for shoulder length but I always forget that “shoulder length” to a stylist means “two inches above shoulder.” It’s still all good though.

2. I was supposed to go watch Ferris Bueller in Grant Park tonight but it was raining pretty hard out 🙁 So instead we (me, JoeJoe, Wilkey, Hood, and Hood’s friend John) went to “The Big Downtown Chicago Bar” (I LOVE anyplace with such a generic name) and drank some yumyum sangria. I now really want to watch the movie now (even if its not outside on a big screen in the park). I also think I need to go out and have a ferris-style Chicago adventure.

3. I have officially started applying for jobs.

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.

    Love the hair Val! Oh… if you guys are free on Friday…
    My sister won a party at Howl at the moon. If you get there before 7, it’s free admission, you get free buffet, and your first two drinks are $.50 a piece! After that it’s half priced drinks.
    I think all you have to do is say you’re with Laurie, but I’m not sure. Give me a call if you’re interested.
    We can bring up to 100 people, so tell Joe & company. I’d love to see you guys again!
