It seriously hurts to think about being bored...

5 Painful Truths You Realize When You Are Bored

It's that time of the year again where I'm finding myself in a limbo between the end of the semester and starting my summer job. Fortunately, my job is really awesome and something I always look forward to every summer, and I know once it starts I'll be constantly busy (I'm a summer camp counselor). Unfortunately, I have to wait for the end of the school year for summer camp to start and take on my glorified babysitting duties. It's a painfully boring three weeks of being unemployed, and it's even more painful when I tell you that I'm only one week in! A dead giveaway of being bored is when you actually write about being bored in a blog where you could virtually write about anything—but I chose being bored. I know a month from now I'll be wishing that I wasn't busy and that I could actually complain about being bored. But here are a few of my lingering thoughts for the past few days.

1. I'm hungry

All. The. Time. And this is the second snack I've had in 20 minutes. We all want to blame our weight gain on healthy foods being over priced, so we opt out for cheap sugary snacks. While that may be true, I think a lot of it is a problem with our lack of self-control. We always look for a handful of chips or a nice bowl of cereal when we have nothing else to do. Maybe go for a run instead?

2. I'm constantly on social media

I've refreshed my Twitter timeline over 30 times in two hours... And very little has changed. I'm waiting for a good Twitter fight to break out, but the chances look bleak. Is this seriously what my life has come to? As long as I'm not the one starting them, I know that I'm still good and I haven't reached an all-time-low.

3. I'm re-watching people's Snapchat stories

Their lives are more exciting than mine, and almost all of the people I'm friends with posted a picture of the sunset with the time filter. I think my pets are tired of me taking pictures of them. But it's the little things in life, right?

4. My phone is dry

The last text I got was four hours ago, and it was a recipe from my mom. I don't even need to charge my phone regularly (that's how little it's being used). I actually got excited when I plugged my phone in to charge it, and it vibrated twice. Incidentally I thought someone texted me, but alas, it was just me fooling myself.

5. I don't have any hobbies

Which is a total lie, I know I do, but I just don't feel like doing any of them. And if you're like me and you consider binge watching shows on Netflix a hobby, well, that too is getting old. Time to go complain to mom about being bored...
