Feeling bored? You’re not alone. Out of boredom, I just searched the word “bored” on Twitter and got 65 results that were posted in the last minute alone. That’s more than one boredom per second. The irony is that when people tweet about being bored, it’s often the opposite of boring.
Here are ten tweets about being bored that should make you feel less bored. Or at the very least, less alone in your boredom. #solidarity
10. Don’t look at me
Why do this? So we can talk about nothing faster?
Me: I’m so bored!!
Acquaintance: Wanna video chat?
Me: I’m busy.

9. Go directly to jail
How did a game that absolutely nobody likes become so popular anyway?
I will never be bored enough in this lifetime to say yes to a game of Monopoly

8. Switch things up!
Just because it’s different doesn’t mean it’s good.

3. Because I got high
The fact that you’re answering your own questions also supports this theory.
Question: Am I eating because I'm hungry or because I'm bored?
Answer: because I'm high.

Go enjoy that industry that definitely still exists!
So bored I've started listening to my voicemails.
Glad I did, because apparently I've won several free cruises.

Boredom is a powerful drug. It can drive us crazy, make us lazy, or sometimes, push us to go try or do something we’ve been putting off. So if you’re horribly bored right now, think of something you’ve been meaning to do that’s within your grasp, and just do it. By the end of the day, you may still feel bored, but at least you’ll also feel accomplished.
Either that or go watch The Office again, whatever, I’m not your dad.
What do you do to alleviate boredom?
