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

Val is in Love…

1. I always knew he’d be the perfect boyfriend:

(Chasing Jason, a video short about going on a date with Jason Voorhees.)


2. Wednesday I went for coffee with MK and his friend Dan, but I had a milkshake and it was damn yummy. We then went back to Matt’s for Top Gear and I made him play the episode where they go to America and show how horrible of a country we are 🙂 At one point they have a challenge to drive through Alabama without getting arrested or shot…and at the same time try to get the other guys arrested or shot…and they did so by painting things such as “Nascar Sucks” and “Vote for Hillary” and “Man Love Rules OK” on each others cars. Yeah…they were almost killed…

Since I had to follow MK and Dan back, they kept trying to throw me off by constantly switching lanes and turning on the turn signal and switching places with each other Chinese firedrill style. It was funny. 🙂 And, since it was a *warm* 35 degrees I put down all my windows and sang because the shuffle Q101 was playing had a bunch of my fav sing at the top of my lungs songs (when’s the last time I ever heard Little Black Backpack on the radio???)


3. Today my department had our Christmas party. Yup. We got some yummy tapas (I had some mushrooms stuffed with duck and topped with cheese amongst other dishes).


4. I am currently signed up for 2 classes next quarter and can’t decide between them. Now, I could take both of them and be done with my masters by June…but I don’t really want to devote that much time to class while working full time plus hopefully there will be something I really really want to take next quarter. My choice is between technical writing and text and image. I probably should take tech writing, but it meets on Mondays so I will no longer be able to attend any 24 things. But then again, text and image is on Wednesdays so I will be in class when they announce who gets kicked off of American Idol. Decisions, decisions… Opinions on what sounds better???

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.
