Define how boredom strikes you? | MCO Diary extended

Tuesday, 24 March 2020

It's day eight. And there's still another 20 days since the MCO is extended for another 14 days. I hope it'll be okay soon. But it's impossible since the cases keeps on increasing and this is our first time dealing which the virus. It was only yesterday they reported that the number of cases are going down. But not anymore. I don't want to comment anything on that since I know it's not an easy decision for them to make while trying to considered the well being of every person in the country.  Anyway, I hope you guys are doing well, safe and healthy. Having so much to do doesn't mean you'll never ever be bored. At certain times I am. 

Sometimes you wanna do this and sometimes you wanna do that. But there will also be time when you don't even want to do anything because you're tired of it and that nothing catch you interest anymore. It's actually pretty amusing the fact that when boredom strikes, all these hidden creativity, problem solving and abstract thoughts suddenly came to live. I mean it just happen. 

In most cases it grows by being fostered, encouraged, supported and allowed to happened. There are also some who unconsciously brought it outside. All those crazy ideas and things that they do. I can see it a lot during this Restriction Movement Order. A lot of people seems to be doing things they've never really did. Trying something new, thinking outside the box and made all the impossible possible. Most if it. It's amazing.  


In my case I'm just trying to find something decent to do. Went through my old stuff and found lot and lots of stickers, craft accessories and unused stationeries. This cute mini stickers, I bought it last year but haven't used it. Probably because I forgot where I actually placed it. Now that I found it, I gotta use it. hehe 

When people go crazy over the Dalgona Coffee, trying to make it with different ingredients and various flavours, I am just here with my various water bottle and thermos trying to stay hydrate. I just used different one just for fun. 


I'm not a creative person with so many ideas but still I love art and craft. Simple ones of course. Can you guys see those cute flowers on my glasses, phone and book XD? I did that, obviously. At least it look more lively. Rather than just plain and all black. 

Wasn't planning on putting the mini flowers on the book cover but there's a little scratch there and I'm so sad, it hurts. If you love books as much as I am you'll know that pain. The plastic was kinda teared off a bit and if I let it be, it would someday get bigger and messier. 


Apart from that, I also cleared up my never ending unread mails, junks and whatsoever, manually (there's hundreds and thousands of 'em). Just because I need to check if there is any important ones. If I did not, I might've deleted some important emails and I don't want that. 

I am usually very lazy at checking emails and clearing things up but when boredom strikes those laziness can be something else. Most people tend to do the things they never thought they would do. Am I right? 

How did you deal with it?

  13. What you said is true, the part about sometimes even with the infinite amount of time we have in our hands, if we're bored, nothing runs. For me at least, I definitely have days that I want to get creative but the "feeling" is missing. It doesn't feel fun when I force myself to go ahead with my plans for the day. Sometimes, the feelings must come naturally. I try to go with the flow and when I'm finally inspired, I'll use that chance to accomplish whatever plans I have. RMO is necessary, but sometimes, it can be boring. hahaha

    1. Yes I feel you. It really is challenging even tho we're just here sitting at home without knowing what to do. At times ideas will come and since you no longer have anything to do, you tend to be very diligent to do this and that. As long as you're enjoying whatever you are doing, that would be more than okay. hehe

  22. I spend so much time doing arts and craft for my bullet journal too!
    I didn't get the chance to do it before because when my brother in law go to work, I helped my sister babysit her one year old baby. But now everyone's home all the time, I get to spend time on my own and do my own thing without worrying about them needed my assist in anything.

    Fell in love with Dalgona of course, that's only because I have an alternate equipment to make it less than 3 minutes. Ugh, I wish I have a printer so I can bujo-ing more.
