I HATE boring. I can't do it. The same food, every day? Yuck!

I try to keep my life interesting and frugal. I probably spend more keeping it interesting than I would if I had simple tastes, but I'm happy and that's what matters.

I guess to some, my life is boring, but to me, it's rife with rich adventures.

I get to interview great minds from the comfort of my home office as a writer--and get paid for it. Almost every day, a vicarious adventure without leaving home. But I do leave home, anyhow, most every day, to go fora long bike ride and gym work-outs or else my butt would be the size of Texas...

I have never likied beihng bored and most people don't. It often leads to people creatign drama from being bored. That is one reason so many people living life in the projects get into such drama in the first palce. if your truely doing what you want and stay busy you wouldn['t be bored. That requires different things for different people.

Ultimately money is used to engage in transactions between other people. When you spend money its very often to have other people do things for you. Money can be used to stifle creativity as much as it can be used to create opportunities.
