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...

    To me life itself is boredom in a good sense.

    Boredom is that very phenomenon that haunts you like an evil spirit day and night and that we keep trying to avoid by keeping ourselves busy all the time with external things, occupied just to escape feeling its 'pain'. Everyone has their own way of escaping it, while I...

    It Happens At Nighttime

    I just can't stand nighttime, because it just dark outside. Then my boredom sinks in. I would wallow around because it is dark outside and I stay in the house. I start to worry. I always think bad things are going to happen at night. You see, that is what happens, when you...

    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...
