My nephew visited my family's house today. Something set him off and he started to cry. After a few moments of unintelligible whimpering and complaining, I caught the words "I'm just so bored!" as they spilled out of his mouth. I didn't know what to tell the kid. The truth is, I've been feeling the exact same way all day.

I can't say that I was bored to tears like he was; but I've certainly felt as if my brain might wither away from inactivity.

It's not that I haven't tried to find something productive to do. But it's simply one of those days.

I'm caught up to date on all of my blog reading.

I've watched all recent subscription videos on YouTube.

I've run out of Photoshop ideas for the time being.

I do have a video to edit. It's coming along, but I can only do it in short spurts. To be fair, that's how it starts with all of my extensive videos. Once I'm about halfway through I'll be able to just sit down and finish. But it'll be about four more sit-down-and-work-for-fifteen-minutes-before-taking-a-break moments until I get to that point.

I played sudoku with my mom for a while today. It held my attention for about an hour or so before I became aware that I was failing miserably due to my lack of focus.

I think I've finally come to the conclusion that today is just one of those days. Even if I find something to do, the fact is that it simply won't hold my attention for very long.

Why is this? Because I'm distracted. And I'm bored because those few engrossing thoughts are trying to take up residence in my mind and won't let me drown them out with pointless (but sometimes entertaining) activities.

Well, I have a lesson to prepare for church tomorrow...I should get on that. I hope I don't get too bored. Wish me luck!

I can honestly say I have never been bored a day in my life. I don't know why I just have not. Maybe it is because I am just hyper and constantly moving and then I crash. Especially chashing a little one around. I dunno--anyhow I hope tomorrow is better. We all having funky days

Truthfully I was kinda bored so I started reading your blog but now I'm not bored anymore.
