Are you bored? Is life boring? Yeah? Some people say “There’s no such thing as boredom, only boring people!” Ensuring that if you were bored, you are no longer bored, but now bored and insulted.
And also, bored. Because that’s exactly the sort of tedious, mundane, brainless sentence, that makes one sigh, roll one’s eyes and collapse in a fit of listlessness.
Things to do when one is bored:
1) Be bored
2) That’s it.
Yes, you could try and snap out of it. You could think about what you really want to do with your life, break it down into smaller, achievable targets, make a list of things to do, and get cracking with the first on the list with a sense of optimism, well-being, confidence and a spring in your step which only increases with each small accomplishment you tick off.
But, bollocks to it. The truth is, you are very fortunate to be bored. Life is unremittingly horrible. You are likely to be deluged with disasters and just trying to stay afloat will require the discipline and single-mindedness to complete a litany of energy-sapping tasks that you don’t want to do.
If I were you, I would take this opportunity to be bored and give it everything you got. Throw yourself, full tilt, into doing nothing much. Can being bored be made into the best moment of your life?
Yes ennui can!
