This guy could work 24 hours a day! The pleasure you experience in life should not come from one single activity, but rather from many activities. Practice shooting a bow-and-arrow and compete in contests. That being said, we all have moments when time just seems to drag on. After that, with gardening and animals, I will never be bored. Good luck man, I'm with ya. Scour your pantry and fridge.
The money gave us the freedom to make choices. I can certainly understand where some people may get bored. Ask your mechanic questions when something goes wrong instead of just handing him the keys and describing the smell. I always say that someone who is bored has no imagination. Boredom is no joking matter for retirees that have been at it for a while and are truly out of activities and the personal interest list is blank.
Watch the stars, listen to the sounds of night animals, and enjoy the fresh, cool air under the moonlight with family and friends. Or take cool training classes.

We can offer dozens, maybe hundreds of specific suggestions, but where to start? I was pretty bored at work. Forget about it, and then look at it when you move out. Any idea what kind it is?
