When You Don't Give A Damn Make A Dam!

So I had a lot of options of things I could have talked about this week. I could have discussed Mother’s day or the anniversary of my grandmother’s murder or how I’m still so indecisive about what I’ll be doing next fall  or how I’m trying to build up confidence or finally write that piece as to why I go by Dupree and not Sarah…
Basically I have a lot of ideas. But I don’t really the emotional capacity to write about any of them. I don’t know what has been wrong with me lately. I don’t want to eat, I don’t want to talk to friends. Curling up in bed with a book is the only thing that sounds good and even that is a last resort. So because I just don’t give a damn at the moment I thought I would post my summer bucket list. I made it the other day when I was trying to get out of my funk. Didn’t help much but it was interesting.

Song of the Week
Shake It Out – Glee cover (Florence + The Machine)
I’ve been listening to this on repeat. It’s helped me calm down. I like it. I guess that’s all I have to say about that.

The other night I had a jam session with some friends. We all just sang random stuff and then it was just a couple of us singing the Black Parade. So I think this applies to singing and being more social (and maybe being more comfortable with myself because I have a TERRIBLE singing voice :P ).
And the other day I was able to let a friend pay for my lunch. Receiving help!

Love you guys!


  1. I love this post. :) There is something fun about bucket lists, and there are some great things on yours. Keep us updated!

  2. I have clinomania sometimes...but not nearly as often as I did during my time at BYU...
    Try fish oil and vitamin B instead of prozac.
    oh, and remember that I love you.
    And that you're welcome to come visit me in ogden anytime you need a break! :)

  3. Who says YA novels can't be intellectual?
    YA novels are probably the best ones to read.
    Also, I think you should ask for all 5 dates...but that's just me. :)
