    I am the master of tuning everything out and becoming wholly absorbed in my thoughts while externally displaying resting bitchface. Years of practice.

    I'm overwhelmed with jealousy

    Although, I sometimes carry earplugs around. I have a pair sitting at my desk right now. They are a godsend.

    Once bored, it won't take long before I seek and find something to put my mind to.

    However, sometimes I also enjoy a little daydreaming. In which case not much is going to be done.

    Still, whatever the case, I am rarily bored for very long.

    I'm not saying boredom is great or anything, but for just a little bit of it drive them crazy????
    This is why my purse weighs so much.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Yeah, I can't handle boredom. It makes me want to cry and throw tantrums. Sometimes, it actually makes me cry and throw tantrums.

    But what if you have to pay attention to the boring stimulus? Let's say a boring lecture/textbook.

    During class, I've resorted to rudely using my phone to browse the interwebs while half listening to the lecture in order to stay awake. However, I'm sure that doesn't put me in a great relationship with the professors.

    On another random note, I've nicknamed one of my boring professors "Noodles."

    Aha, noodles.

    I do what you do. I half-listen. It's common to use a laptop in class, so I fart around on the internet or do work for other classes if the teacher is covering something I already know or don't find useful. For example, my medical communications class has been covering grammar. Snore. Medical terminology homework instead.

    If I miss anything from the half-listening, the classmates I sit next to fill me in. I do the same for them.

    i've recently realized this "fear" of being bored is behind most of my anger issues. i mean...not that i have anger issues haha but when i get mad for seemingly no reason. it's usually because something occurred that ended up making me be really bored.

    i'm not bored when i'm at home doing nothing. i'm not usually bored eating alone somewhere public...but get me alone somewhere with no way to entertain myself...like my phone dies or something...or i'm waiting for someone or something..oh dear god....i hate to wait. maybe it's not the boredom factor as much as it is the being stuck factor...i need to be able to escape the boringness.

    This is an interesting phenomenon that I've never heard of before. Is it common for people to become angry when bored?
