I Battle Boredom

    Why Isn't This Working!?

    This is awful. My usual sources of entertainment just aren't working anymore. It's all so empty. There's nothing interesting on Youtube (crazy to believe, but it's true), none of the shows I follow are airing at the moment, I don't feel like reading anything, I can't play games...

    My Solution

    My solution to boredom is to eat. I makes me feel great to have a very full belly and them I have these wonderful rolls of fat to play with. That keeps me entertained almost endlessly. Of course, the fat cells demand more and more food, so it's a cycle of eating and fattening...

    It Happens At Nighttime

    I Hate Boredom

    Every evening, it comes without warning...that feeling of emptiness, of total lack of interest in anything, that routine that makes your days and nights look alike. After a long day at work (doing the same thing everyday) comes boredom at home. I have nowhere to go, no friends to...
