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

What’s your damage?

“Whether to kill yourself or not is one of the most important decisions a teenager can make”

MattH and I made MattyK watch Heathers last night. Brilliant movie. He at least liked it more than the Gruesome Twosome. I guess that’s not saying much. I made my yummy garlic bread specialty for everyone. I think it lived up to Chinns.

Later, I was in MKs room and his pj pants were on the bed. Why do men’s pj pants have the front hole in them? Matt says no one uses it anyways. And that’s in underwear. I told him that some people have to use them and this was the conversation:

Me: Ask Joejoe how he goes to the bathroom.
Matt: I don’t think he does.

Hehe. This was of course, after Matt and Joe declared their love for each other over aim.

I was going to complain about work now, but I don’t feel like it. All I have to say is:

1 more week and my editing class will be over.

2 more weeks and I’ll be in Vegas.

3 more months and I will have quit.

Next week we have 3 nights of American Idol, the finale of Project Runway, the 2 hour premiere of Americas Next Top Model, The O.C. is back, plus VH1 has 5 nights of I Love Toys. How in the hell am I going to study for my final on Saturday???

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.

    I was so shocked when I first saw that pic of Joe, I didn’t know what to believe.

    my friend next to me was smoking, i grabbed a cigarette from him, took a fake puff because i can’t smoke things very well, then spent most of the rest of the cigarette using it to take incriminating pictures of joemeier. the best part was he let me.

    I can’t smoke things very well myself. My friends always know when I try to because I violently couch for a few minutes afterwards.
