“Boredom inspires creativity”
I’ve never really understood those words until now. Recently I surfaced from a pretty intense spell of depression. I really thought I was never going to get out. It took a long time, weeks of lost sleep, and some serious life changes to reach a point where I don’t feel depressed.
But once I reached that point, I really didn’t know where to go. I lost a lot of friends, and school was about to start. I thought for a while, for hours and hours, and a few weeks ago, I came to a decision. When I was little, I always used to tell her I was bored, and she would always reply with pretty much the same thing, words that are now ingrained in my head, “Boredom inspires creativity.”
Through the boredom of having absolutely nothing to do, I was forced to find a project. As a result, I’m now working on a game with one of my remaining friends. I don’t know where I’m heading, but I’m excited to find out, and that’s a hell of a lot of progress from where I was. I can’t wait to see where the future leads!
