On Boredom and Killjoys


Last night my Facebook feed came across a social butterfly dubbing us with zero night life as killjoys. Like seriously, has society dictated the population that solitude and choosing to stay at home on Fridays and weekends make somebody sad and boring?

Well maybe it does. But not necessarily. The perception of boredom actually depends on the level of interest one extends on others. The activities of one person may be placid and passive but not necessarily boring just because you have a glitzy social life and that others chose to bury their heads on books and music and stuff you'll never be interested in.

It helps to be a little more open-minded because generally speaking, myopia is never good.
