Get bored… get really bored. It’s important.


I haven't been writing much.  I haven't been doing much of anything else but working.  I get up,  I take the train, I work, I go home – the cycle continues.  That's most peoples days, sure.  For me,  I have been spending every waking minute thinking, pondering, wondering about my new job.  It's very exciting and I am loving it.  The difficulty,  the expectations, the responsibility has been exhilarating.  There is one problem.  I have no time to be bored.

Being bored is important.  Being bored is the state in which we have to find something to occupy our brains or we go bananas.  When I am bored I look for new things to learn.  When I am bored I call friends.  When I am bored I can be creative to you know? Not be bored!  My new job isn't allowing me to be bored.  That's a good thing but I miss being bored.

I never thought I would miss being bored but I do.  Boredom is awesome.
