I hate using the sentences “I’m so bored” or I’m so busy” because being so bored means you’re too unimaginative to do something productive while being so busy means you’re just bragging about being overworked. But I use them sometimes to emphasize a certain situation. I’m never really bored and I’m never that busy in an office-work kind of way. I’m busy in a writer-philosopher kind of way, though. Being busy with administrative or clerical work is not the same as being busy with thinking or planning about something. I think the latter is actually the good kind of busy. The former is just rote routine.
SO, what exactly is it to be bored or to be busy, to you? I think it’s really relative, don’t you think? All I do know is that I don’t want to be seen as a bored guy so I keep myself busy with whatever I think will make me happy at the moment. For now, I’m just thinking and writing. I hate being bored, and I hate saying “I’m so bored.” That just really means your brain is dead and you’re too lazy to think of ways to be of use. Be useful. Use that pent-up energy for something. Read a book, spook your friends or maids. Anything. Just don’t be a couch potato watching TV all day long. There is nothing worse than being bored than wasting away your life doing something unproductive and unimaginative. Wake up. Think, think, think. And then do something about it.
