Hello, Boredom.

It has been raining almost the entire day. I didn’t make any plans of going out because I am cherishing weekends like these – no stress, no workload to think of. I have read a few pages of my book of the month, written an article on the last movie I’ve seen, and I’ve also done some of the household chores assigned to me.

Even my dog Crystal was visited by Boredom.

Now, I feel bored. This rarely happens, as most of my friends would know. I am almost always busy, on-the go, stressed, and occupied with work. I rarely stay at home during Saturdays, even Sundays. Events ate up even my time with my family last year. My presence at home today has made my mom wonder, but I’m guessing that she prefers this over my previously activity-loaded weekends.

In a very rare occasion today, Boredom dropped by and said, “Hey, I missed you.” I missed Boredom, too. I gave him a hug and a kiss on the cheek and asked him to stay with me while I sit in front of the laptop. (So Boredom is a guy?? -my other self asks.)

I surfed the internet, read some interesting/frustrating/creepy stuff, and after a few clicks, came across this survey entitled 30 Funny Questions to Make You Think. I didn’t find them the least bit funny, yet out of sheer boredom which I am actually enjoying, I answered the survey:

If you could bring one character to life from your favorite book, who would it be? Lisbeth Salander

If you wanted to look very sexy, how would you dress? I’d wear heels and skinny jeans and a white top and as always, confidence

Think of the last time you were REALLY angry. Last time I was really angry, I cried and cursed a lot

What is more difficult for you; looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when they are telling you how they feel? Looking into someone’s eyes – it’s hard enough that you’re telling them how you feel, what more when you have to look them in the eye

Hah! Boredom is taking a peek at my laptop and shrugs his shoulders. He props his feet on the table while I try to figure out why people ask questions about life. Will we really be able to answer everything? I guess we never will. So instead of worrying about what’s gonna happen tomorrow or next year, or if it’s gonna be a sunny Sunday, or if Kim Kardashian will give birth to a boy or a girl, I will just enjoy the rest of the weekend with a cup of coffee and some good old music from my iPod. Happy weekend, folks!

music and coffee, coffee, musical notes
