So Bored

  1. May 31, 2007 #1
    So Bored....

    I can't pick up a book, I can't play music, I don't even want to listen to music. I can't even watch TV or play video games. I work 6/7 days a week at my two jobs. But I still get most evenings off. That's when I get bored.

    Boredom's always been my great nemesis, I remember back in elementary school I was like this already, I'd have these dry spells when I seem to have no motivation, everything seems pointless. I even did an Art Project on being bored back in grade 7. I think it was 7.

    Yup. I'm bored. I need a hobby.

    Why don't you try out your favourite sport? You could join some club for amateurs perhaps. That's what I am doing for my summer hols, and I'm glad to say that I am enjoying my stint.

    I am in the same position smurf. Except, I don't work, so I have all day long to be bored. I think I will second the idea of arunbg, and suggest doing some sports and/or working out. I started working out a few weeks ago, and that helps kill some time. Watch some more episodes of bull**** :smile: (http://www.veoh.com/ and http://www.tv-links.co.uk/show.do/1/1919 [Broken] ) Though I must admit, the more I watch the show, the more I seem to hate what is going on in our world.

    Unfortunately I only like women.
    Don't worry, I got it.
    Can some people not do that or something?

    So you're bored. Lay on the couch and throw a ball at the cieling. Sleep more. Fully experience the boredom for all it's worth. Then when you are bored of being bored, go do something more useful with your time. Focus on being as bored as possible and you'll get through it quicker. It should leave you with the proper appreciation and respect for boredom. Ya have to be busy ALL the time? I can eat a peach for hours.

    That was awesome.

    Yes, I'm the Lewis and Clark of boredom. I can turn eating a peach into an epic adventure. However, I haven't received any recent grants for hopeful expeditions. Lewis and Clark were more well funded than I am. The point is to enjoy the smaller things in life for all they have to offer.

    Umm, I didn't really mean that. :redface:

    Yes, YOU !!!

    but i did it, it was easy.

    this is going to sound lame, but excercise. if you are somewhat young, and not severely overweight, run. And don't just jog, run. Its great.

    There really is something called a runner's high and I get it all the time. Sometimes I'll start smiling like an idiot on the treadmill and people look at me like i'm crazy.

    Most definitely.

    Get to know Smurfette, and everything will turn in a better direction. :wink:

    I'm in a similar situation myself, btw. :uhh:
