Life is so monotonous, especially without a lot of money. What do you guys do to avoid monotony?

Instead of actually finding something to do, which never works, I usually just get drunk or smoke pot. This way, I don't have to find something entertaining, I just consume something that makes everything entertaining.

that's odd, i'm never really bored. i have a billion things spinning around in my head at all times. currently, it's thoughts of data mining with genetic/evolutionary programming.

The monotony of life shouldn't refer to being bored. It should refer to bloody routine, you fucktard.

What I don't get is straight edge people. What the hell do they do for fun most of the time? Sure, I used to have fun without beer and pot in highschool, like most people, but now it seems like there's nothing to do besides that. The sad part is I'm serious. God, if saw myself typing this back in 10th grade, I dunno what I'd think of myself. I guess most people study or workout or something, but I hate that.

You might think I'm a loser for this, but at least I'm trying to find new things to do... :o

but, for the empty time, surfing. You know, the surf fills the holes of my mind. Otherwise i think i'd lose myself.

yeah i do a lot of that stuff. i'd go to the movies more if they weren't so expensive. i used to play drums all the time, but after my parents got divorced, i had to move into an apartment next to some old lady, so i can't play anymore. whatever.

being as chaotic as I am, even the most daily obligations come as a surprise. "Bella, where are you? you do realise you should be at the uni right now, right?"

to avoid monotony, I study, clean my room, wash my clothes & do the dishes. those are all things I don't regularly do. I find it harder to avoid monotony in my relationship, than in my life. life surprises me all the time & I can't say the same for my boyfriend, who I know so well by now.

I'm going back on topic. I've got a really bad habit of doing that.

To try and suppress boredom I watch television, fuck around on le ps2, watch films and go to the pub.

If all else fails, I sleep.

I like to do things that have potential for adventures. Clearly, one can never plan an adventure per se -- but you can definitely leave yourself open to the opportunity of falling into one.

Some examples:

Setup: Driving around aimlessly in new territory, who knows what you'll stumble upon. (This was better when I had regular access to a car).
Adventure: End up driving through bush trail, car almost breaking down.

Setup: Hanging out with people that you don't really know.
Adventure: Waaaaay too many to name here.

Setup: Late night walks, drunken or otherwise.
Adventure: Getting stopped by cop car, warned of stabber on the loose.

Setup: Late night walks in unfamiliar territory.
Adventure: Getting lost - a guaranteed adventure.

Setup: Late night walks downtown.
Adventure: Discovering a carnival!

Setup: Going to bars where you clearly don't belong and would not regularly go to.
Adventure: Hilarity ensues including dancing with awesome 50 year old dancers. Unless of course you REALLY shouldn't be there, that could be bad news.

Setup: Roadtrip!
Adventure: Oh boy!

Setup: Late night deserted beach trips.
Adventure: Skinny dipping in plain sight of oncoming traffic.

Setup: Hiking through the woods and deciding to take an alternate route.
Adventure: Getting very, very lost. Traveling through swamps, climbing up cliffs, close encounters with wildlife.

Setup: Late night hide-and-seek or other group game.
Adventure: Lots of fun.

Setup: Going to the strip club.
Adventure: Going on stage, getting boobs in the face, winning free t-shirt.

Setup: Drunk tobogganing!
Adventure: Many near-death experiences.

Setup: Alcohol.
Adventure: Who knows where the night'll take you.

Just to give you a taste. Life rocks. Live it up.

Betty
04-05-2006, 09:44 AM
Man, I was gonna put that too.

Setup: New Years bonfire.
Adventure: Midnight barefoot running! For the record I have outrun everyone every year by doing numerous laps. People are wusses.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/Wildbetty/Thebarefootrun.jpg

Setup: Polar bear swim, or other very cold swim
Adventure: Exhiliration.

I don't have a problem with l'ennui. But I never do the same routine. In class I usually read a book about something else for example. Which is a perfectly good explanation as to why my grade average has gone a full grade in 7 months.

No monotony for me. I have so much stuff to do and I always forget to do half of it. I always need to go somewhere, finish something, see someone, but I obviously forget to do most of it.

This shit in various orders, I'm sure you'll have funn with my hobbies.

Irritate my neighbours with loud music,
get dumped,
start catfights between whores at my school,
shout at people,
spend days curled up in a ball,
take pictures of pointless things,
paint my nails,
irritate my neighbours by turning my amp up to 11,
talking to a wiccan dude who is the prince of the faeries,
write almost endlessly,
read pop-cult and Stephen King books,
listen to more music,
check my phone to see if anyone cares enough to text me (which not often, I have some of my ex ex ex gf's texts next to both my ex ex's and my ex's, if you understand),
post REALLY long posts on this forum,
watch porn,
chew Orbit Professional gum,
walk to a wall and sit on it,
go to Bath with friends and listen to classical guitarists,
go to Bristol with friends and listen to drunk hobos.

That's all I can think of currently.

I used to drive around on my bike through the woods, purely with the intention of getting lost. I love you for doing somewhat the same.

I hang around with people I don't know daily. it's superhilarious & too awesome to put into words. I'm not always easy to talk to when you know me, but when you don't.. I love talking to random strangers, so if you don't know me, that automatically makes you my next possible object to victimise with my rambling.

I used to go to superduper alternative bars. definitely a blast. also gay-parties? fucking fantastic. especially if they hired some transvestites for entertainment & invited your most closed minded, hysterical friend.

late night walks to where ever in whatever state are obviously the bomb aswell.

so why I made this post? just to let you know that we rock.

i get bored sometimes, but i wouldn't say my life is monotonous at all. =/ in fact, it seems like there aren't enough hours in a day. i have a lot of school stuff to work on - always - it's different every week and quite exciting at times. i always find myself running out of time, so that sucks.

anyway, i'm into a lot of stuff and i live in new york.. it's kinda hard to be really bored unless i'm too lazy to leave my room.
on the weekends.. i work on my jewelry portfolio, go out to eat/or the movies, do my pilates, go mountain biking if weather permits, walk/drive around aimlessly.. look for cool exhibitions/trade shows/galleries/whatever.. bah.

Congratulations, you're an addict. It's only going to get worse until you ruin the life of everyone around you and die alone in a gutter. Have fun.

Me, I like to write, eat, crap, go for a walk, read, watch movies, play guitar, put on music, dance, play computer games, play with my possessions and piss. That's why my life is hell and I hope I die.

I'd be more concerned about the pot. I witnessed a good friend of mine from rez become pretty dependent. He pretty much gets high everyday. Which I guess isn't THAT bad. But he's a changed person. Spacey, doesn't want to go out when he can stay in and smoke up, and he's kind of a jerk when he's high. I barely even like the stuff anymore - really needs to be the right circumstances.

T-6005
04-05-2006, 05:14 PM
I like pot, but being high all the time takes the fun out of it.

Plus I really couldn't afford the food I ate while high. Haven't done it for months.

JoY
04-08-2006, 10:34 AM
with the right company, I can enjoy pot. otherwise I'll just be overly paranoid, not trusting myself & certain old friends I got high with, who tried to get into my pants while I was sleeping. yugh.

besides, I'm used to being kind of hyperactive, thoughts-wise. especially weed makes me tired like a motherfucker & that doesn't calm me down - it slams me down, which feels extremely uncomfortable & against my nature. so it's kinda the party-crasher for me. plus, I try so much to get rid off the heavy, slow, tired feeling, that I stress out too much most of the times & then just vomit out dinner. also weed & alcohol is a pretty sickening combination. well, having a lot of both. just thought I should mention that.

hashle is alright, though. *thumbs up* altogether I'm guessing I probably smoked weed/hash 4 times, plus five days.

I've never seen anyone end up being different/change for the worse/in the gutter, because of pot, by the way. I *have* seen many people who got bored of pot, tried something else & got stuck in the coke scene. softdrugs -> harddrugs doesn't seem like a crucial, huge step to take. it is, though. I'm kind of sick of aggressive dudes with superlarge pupils humping me & attacking their own friends. & it's people I don't expect they'd ever even try coke, who I find snorting snow in the bathroom. & coke is just an example. it just sucks. fuck, before I moved to Amsterdam, I hadn't even ever smoked a joint, let alone see people shooting up next to me on the subway.
