Boredom is a Bad Word

So this is what we’ve become. The distracted nation, boredom be damned. When was the last time you just thought? Thinking for thinking’s sake? Boredom hits and we can’t stand it. What happened to daydreaming?

Smartphones killed the daydream.

I used to daydream in class, it was wonderful. Teachers hated it, I got A’s, teachers couldn’t say much but did anyway.

I wonder what that has done to us, as a nation, a globe really. A life without leisure, even cats get to stare off into space, but we don’t. We need a podcast, music, a show, something to fill our consciousness. Because of this, I’ve set aside time every day to think.

How can you produce a thought if you’re constantly consuming them?
