I Choose Noise [find me in the crowd]

Pure and Utter Boredom

I've come to realize that the fear of boredom is unfounded.  People should embrace boredom—it's freedom; you've completed your tasks and now, you've got an open slate.  Fill it with whatever you want.  I see boredom as a challenge: I find that one thing that I've put aside and I get to work.  If that's nothing, then, very well, I do nothing.  Unrestrained, uninhibited time should be a daily goal.  Everyone should set aside blocks of boredom throughout life—you're given carte blanche with creativity.  Personally, I think people fear boredom because they aren't interesting enough or have enough imagination to take the nothing and make it into the something.
