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

They read my mind.

1. I am NOT going to Nashville this weekend for work. I am NOT going camping this weekend in Indiana. I AM going to Champaign this weekend though. 🙂

2. This is funny.

3. Why do I not just order my sandwiches without lettuce instead of picking it all off?

4. I use Movable Type to create my blog. They just introduced a TON of new features if I upgrade that i could use to turn my blog into a whole social network. Forget facebook, you can be on VALbook!!!

5. I’ve been looking a lot at wedding photographer sites lately to try to start getting inspiration. They just make me sad though because
a) they make me wish I was a much better photographer and knew how to, say, take good pics in low light
b) they make me really want to get married. Some photographers I have found that I want to be (and also that I want to be the bride in the weddings they’ve shot…):

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.
