Ideas to counter boredom
Its a long time I have posted, well like the character in a movie "Chronicles of Riddick" I was walking around like a zombie with a dagger in my back. I was waiting for that phase to pass before I write something and publish it, lest I start ranting about somethings which I would not like to share. Won't say that phase has passed, but it seems that I'll live. So, here I finish my yearly quota of ranting and jump back to my old self.
Alright folks, if you are just as bored or clueless how to find some excitement in life as me. Try out some of the following things. They might actually work and for some of them I can vouch for myself.
Alright folks, doesn't matter if your are jilted in love, had a bad fight with your spouse or just simply bored, the below recipes for excitement work out equally well for all. Just give it a try and you might not regret.
1 - Drive around at double the speed limit or the maximum speed limit of your car which ever is achieved earlier. And then to add spice, close your eyes while on steering for 5 seconds :D. It really sharpens your instincts.
2 - Open the Sun Roof of the car on the a snowy day and ride along the slippery roads after switching off the stability control of the vehicle, singing at full volume as if intoxicated. Skidding the vehicle, on turns as if it were a motorbike... n of course scaring the hell out of co-passengers ;))
3 - Graduating from Beginners to Master level of sailing within two days and then riding the choppy waters and 20 knot gales at full speed, tilting the boat upto the limit of capsizing it. Enjoying the expression of excitement on the faces of bystanders, horror on faces of fellow sailors and chagrin on the face of instructor.
4 - Taking some colorful glass flowers in your hand and crushing it. Watching the rainbow hues when the red life liquid merges with the green, reds and yellows. Watching the friends shrieking at the sight and then long ride to the doctor. Enjoying the feigned strictness of an absolutely stunning blonde doctor and her real annoyance at removing the one million shards implanted by this act.
5 - Going inside deep caves and trying to convince the guide to go down and take a dip in the underground waterbody which carries poisonous creatures.
6 - On your first experience going for a Level-4 rafting course and navigating through rapids where known risk of death/injury is there.
7 - Going for a sky diving and feigning that you are an expert at it and refuse an instructor. And then asking the very basic questions about opening a parachute ones you are ready to jump from fellow jumpers. :D
Duh, if nothing works out for you, then my friend(mexican interjection) just try helping out an old friend who can use all the support and love you have to offer. This will feel like the first rain of the season and give you the much needed peace.
