Diply 18 Oct 2018

Let's face it, you're going to encounter boredom at some point in your life. It's right up there with death and taxes. Even if you keep motivated, you're going to find quiet moments when nothing's going on and you just don't know what to do with yourself.

But boredom can be useful! It's when the mind picks away at the corners of things and finds ways to dismiss the things that don't interest you so you can focus on the things you are really passionate about.

It's actually a creative thing, so hang in there, check out these interesting pics, and see what happens.
