    Default how to eliminate boredom in life?

    have you ever wake up on every Monday, and felt miserable and felt god how you just hate your life, and wish it was ended, or yelling inside "how many more days i have to live like this?.." , or wish Armageddon or BIG things would happen to this otherwise-boring life ?
    raise your hands, if you do..
    because I often felt like this.
    everyday seems like the same, and repeated endlessly in a cycle of utmost boredom.
    you wake up, you go to work, eat, sleep, and sooner than you think, time suddenly already passed so fast, like 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, etc ..and you've felt like you've just 'wasted' so much in life, and your life is so goddamn boring & 'useless' ?
    and also feeling like "goddamn,.another day looking for $$$ but without any meaningful value..until when I have to live like this??"

    this is often even added much worse, when you look at most or many people surrounding you who seemed to be very 'normal' , and they can happily talk about simple little things.
    Or when you see how your friends seem to wake up, and go to work just normally (some even excitedly!!),. without any heavy 'battles' in your mind against it, or even to drag you out of the morning-bed, etc..
    worse is, when you see your friends who work in corporate-cubicles, can still feel as usual, normally, and seems to be OK with what they're doing, in those cramped-little cubicles! ...and it makes you wonder "how?...how can they all do these boring stuff?"
    and with the rise of Internet, and especially Youtube, you kept looking one after another, the ALTERNATIVE lifestyles you could be having, like: just go outside the hectic-crazy city life, just go to a farm, and live simple yet very happily there,
    or go travel around the world, although with very simple foods & lodgings, yet get to experience many wonderful, beautiful unexplainable things,
    or some 'fun' jobs like being a Surfing coach, or even bartender, who's get to meet different kind of interesting people, etc
    instead of just being 'trapped' & 'suffocated' inside this tiny-little cubicle, pressing caculators constantly while swamped by papers with 'cold' datas & facts....
    and sometimes when you see fantasy or sci-fi type of movies, eg like the Matrix series, Lord of the Rings, City of Ember, Pan's Labyrinth, or beautiful great video-games or anime like Final fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, etc, you'd even grow hate this world (Reality) with often only money-and-status oriented, and find yourself want to live in those movies, and get more out-of-touch with your Reality?

    does any of you here can relate with me?

    how to remedy this kind of feelings?

    All the time. This is why I'm nomadic by nature.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.

    Become something else but an NFP, or move to a more interesting planet.

    Stumble onto a random plot to destroy the world by a supernatural bad guy and then take all of your ragtag team of friends in an epic battle to find the truth behind these events. You'll learn a lot about yourself in the process and save the world! (But from what?)

    That's nt for ya.


    anyway, keep the basic idea.
    Bounce stuffs with ur friends.
    When somebody organizes a party, you do the same, he \ she does the same.
    then it gets old and u want to get creative, so u do fun stuffs, u take the first train to disneyland, you take the first last minute plane to wherever for 3 days, get drunk and come back!

    Easy, some wierdo who thinks the way to happiness is to destroy the world and somehow everybody is convinced it MAKES SENSE within his organization.

    Then at the end there's this REALLY lame retarded talk and as he dies he realises u were right.

    Easy, find an ENTP.

    I don't usually feel like that because of boredom. If i do.. I arrange something. Go lounging around, harass people (okay.. friends), find entertainment. But when it comes an existential problem.. Oh boy.

    What counts is the quality of the people the entp is with (lies!)
