Day 6. I will not fill every single moment with “productivity.”
Oh you American culture. We’ve been bred to make every single teeny moment one full of productivity- those of us who were bred from Type A stock, anyway.
Every moment must count for something. Every moment must show something. At work. At home. In a relationship. In life.
Every moment is an opportunity to prove yourself. To show…
31 Days of Not Giving a F*ck: Day 4
Hello there to anyone tracking this journey. I hope that you might find some inspiration from it to find new creative ways to reduce stress.
Today’s choice was a pretty small one.
Or rather, road rage.
I had to take my young newly adopted rabbit to the veterinarian specialist at the southern part of town. First hurdle, the local marathon.

Anal retentive timeliness.
My alarm goes off. 13 times. That’s right- 13 times, none of which were annoying. I did this on purpose. It’s what I wanted to do. Every snooze attack was permission to be free. to be late.

Day 3. Identified area of fucklessness: Your feelings.
Well, it’s not that I don’t give a f*ck about your feelings, but rather that I need to do what I can to preserve my own well-being.
It’s like that moment where someone behaves disrespectfully to you publicly. Rather than reacting out of concern of how it might impact others (such as keeping your mouth shut to not risk others’ feeling…
I declare that I will identify 1 thing/item/issue a day that I don’t give a fuck about. Day one’s zero fucks given was to not give a fuck about how people responded to my declaration that I do not give a fuck.
Within 10 minutes my phone was ringing with callers: “Is this about me? I’m offended if it is.” Staying true to the mission, I explain more core motivation and definition:

Fantastic points about how this “Reality Show” promotes distorted life views, changing cultural expectations and viewpoints, and puts not only the contestants, but the viewers at risk.
