things to do when you’re sad

today I was sad.

actually, I’ve been sad for a week or two now.

which is sad.

so I decided to make a list of things I like to do when I’m sad.

apparently, they have little to no effect on said sadness, but they sure make it a happier sadness.

you know, the ‘I’ll-just-sit-here-and-wallow-in-self-pity’ kind of sadness.

that’s my favorite baggy sweatshirt. it’s blue and has an anchor on it.

and it’s a sweatshirt.


also, I cleaned my room and found various violin parts just lying around. does that make me a nerd?

currently listening to: Rules – Jayme Dee

  1. Ooh, I have a list of things to do when you’re sad, too! :D Written down in my journal… which I can’t remember where it is…. so I’ll have to make another one.

  2. Oh! Ah! Crayons!!! Aweso… oh. Hi.

    Be happy! And you’re not a nerd… okay, you are but so am I. So just come up a visit me, and we will draw random pictures (I’ve finally figured out how to doodle!), put on dress-up clothes, have a photo shoot in my backyard, and then play Toss the Feathers at the speed of light! When we’re finished, we will bake chocolate chip cookies and drink lemonade, possibly while sitting in a tree (if we can get up in it). Then we’ll make a tent out of blankets and stay up all night talking about random things while eating. In the morning we will eat something yummy, then run outside and blow bubbles and pick dandelions. Then we’ll go down to the lakeside park and write a song together while sticking our feet in the lake. We’ll come home and record it, then we’ll listen to 1940’s big band on my record play and swing dance in my room.

    Yup. Come visit.


  3. Why are you unhappy, my dear? You have such a loverly smile in those pictures on your blog. Sometimes melancholy is inconsolably fulfilling, unable to be quenched until the sadness has run its course, but don’t let it overflow your sunny spirit. Stay classy!

  4. When I am sad, I think of all the people that feel more suffering than me, those without food to eat, those with no more reason to be alive. Then, I am sad no more.

    • I used to try that tactic, and eventually I realized that there is a difference between ungratefulness and sadness. because to say that you have no right to be sad because someone else might have it worse is the equivalent of saying that you have no right to be happy because someone else might have it better.
      just my two cents on a subject that tends to come up a lot in conversations. :)

      • That is a well thought out response. and yes, you are right, knowing that some people have it worse than you doesn’t help one bit.
        Sometimes you just have to be sad. That’s it. Let your thoughts wander, some music will come through eventually in the form of ideas, pictures and yeah, songs too.:-)
        Those violin pieces tell me you have a wonderful mind… I love your blog and the way you are Katy. Thanks for coming back. Hugs.

  5. Hi Katy, thanks for liking my poem Timid Eyes. I love your poems and photographs of “things to do when you’re sad.” I’m sad today and this poem brought me some happiness. Maybe I’m happy that I’m not the only one who is sad.

    I’m following you, so I’ll be back to take a look at some of your other work.

    Cheers ;-)


hi, I love you.
