Boredom: A Social Construction

Cures to your so-called boredom

79
Boredom: A Social Construction
Chloe Bradburn

Bored

adjective

feeling weary because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in one's current activity: she got bored with staring out of the window | they would hang around all day, bored stiff.

We are all guilty of sating the phrase "I'm bored," but do we really understand it's full meaning? Ever since I can remember, the phrase "I'm bored" has struck me funny because, well, are we truly bored? There is ALWAYS something we can be doing.

Think about it...You can:

- Study

- Not study

- Hike

- Adventure around your college town

- Make new friends

- Go to the sober social your sorority is hosting

- Participate in trivia night

- Online shop

- CALL UR MOM (or any family member)

- Visit your high school bff at their college

- Join an intramural

- Paint a picture

- Volunteer

- Take up photography (I heard it's trendy, everyone's doing it #VSCO)

- Learn how to brew coffee

- Create a new aspect of your style

- Message an old friend on Facebook

- Delete your dating app and go meet people, REAL people with common interests

- Journal

These are just a few of the infinite cures to your so-called boredom...I promise there is something amazing that can occupy your time!
