    oh bless ya .. Yep, know that feeling.

    I have a stash of books for those moments and today i brought 2 canvases so i am going to paint at some point .. Watch out the next Van Gogh is lurking in the mist .. Yeah we'll see.

    Volunteer work sounds like a good idea or rearranging the kitchen, lol.

    what I really kind of want to do is paint the walls bright colors... I don't think that would go over all too well, however

    The worst part is that it seems to work in a loop... bored -> depressed about being bored -> inaction -> more boredom... I need to break the loop

    I know I'm not the only one like this... now someone give me a kick in the ass in the right direction!
    Boredom is kryptonite to ESTPs. SERIOUSLY. It fooks me up like nothing else, and can very easily trigger depressive symptoms in me. That is honestly why I lead such an industrious life, I don't have a chance to be bored, I am over committed for the next year!

    I WISH I was overbooked!

    Instead I had the misfortune of picking up a women's magazine while waiting for a prescription the other day and running across an article "is your man depressed?"... I concluded that I must be a depressed man momentarily before thinking HOLY SHIT... I NEED TO DO SOMETHING!
