Here is a thingy entitled 'Positively Bored' which I wrote, without the aid or assurance of a safety net in the spring of 2006.
Anyone who says that only boring people get bored, bores me.
Anyone who says that they never get bored is only occupied in their spare time by deluding themselves about their own lack of boredom.
Being bored is a natural, nay quintessential part of the human condition.
It is absolutely normal to become less interested in what you are doing than in the possibilities of what you could otherwise be doing.
It does not mean you are skittish.
It does not mean that you are de-focussed.
It merely makes obvious your status as a human being.
If humans did not become bored, they would not have invented or discovered many of the more fascinating extremes of the human experience of being alive on this planet.
Indeed, they may never have been off this planet.
Being bored is not necessarily dysfunctional.
It is merely a facet of existence.
IF NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION, THEN BOREDOM IS IT'S INSPIRATIONAL BIG SISTER.
