Synonyms of Boredom

That's something I asked a student to look up because she was afraid "bored" was too plain a word for an essay about Jane Austen.

Meanwhile, boredom is just fine for me. It's not ennui and not spleen, but plain boredom under a newly-acquired snuggie (blanket with sleeves). Having passed my horrid exam, I am enjoying napping, watching movies I've seen many times already, and playing with the layout of the blog I fail to write.

The colors outside, just about to be washed out by the rain:

Pretty purple berry-things!

I am suffering from boredom in my own world, unsuccessful in finding some direction and purpose for my current moment in life. I sit and search and try to stay sane...don't think I am succeeding there either :p

But congrats on passing exams and having some rest time :)
Enjoy the snuggie!

Thanks, Kim. The snuggie is wonderfully stupid.

I sit under it while watching TV comedy on Netflix and drawing up lesson plans.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your scholarship applications. Don't give up. I believe in you.
