Word to the wise.

1. Word to the wise: neverevereverever say “I haven’t screwed up at work in a long time.”

2. “1,100 Reported Dead as Cyclone Hits Bangladesh.” I read that headline and imagined a giant Cyclopes terrorizing the town. Then I realized that it said “Cyclone” and that I am probably going to hell.

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.
