So of course im at work earning my hourly rate, but at times it gets boring. Right now im here by myself with not much going on and pretty bored. We need more work to come in so i have a full time job all year long, right now im not sure how i can bring in more work here so im not so bored at work and not on mylot again. So do you work a full time job and find yourself being bored at work too? What do you do when you are bored at work?

You are right, work does get boring sometimes. I hate to admit it, but when I use to work full time and got a little bored I would do several different things that I probably really shouldn't have been doing. Sometimes I would play solitaire, poker or some other card games. Many times a day I would check my Facebook and twitter. Then there was Ebay, which I would have to check periodically to see if I was still the high bidder. I would surf youtube and see what kind of interesting things were on there. Craig's list was another fun one, just to see what kind of junk people were selling. The list of things you can do if you have the internet goes on and on. But somehow I still managed to get all my work done in an eight hour day.

I know what you mean, although my company has facebook and other social networking sites blocked. But, ebay, I definitely am a frequent flyer, lol. Craigslist, etc.. I also, manage to get all of my work completed and with quality. I don't rush my work to hurry and get back online or anything, but it's nice to have that luxury to help pass the time.

I usually get bored with my work too, that usually really happens to me, I usually really feel that boredom. So whenever I feel that, I just motivate myself, I think of things that I'm going to spend my earnings on so I'll be motivated to work.

Since I am a student I do not have job at all the time. I am a part time worker and I do not find bored on my work becuase I need to spent a less time at them and If I feel anything bored I jut go for surfing.

I do have a full time job, and sometimes it could get boring. Even when I have tons to do, that's when I get really bored. I just make sure that everything that has a deadline gets dealt with right away. The other regular things, I pace as much as possible. To not-get-bored, I would be doing things at work. I would have different windows at the background of my desktop. One would be for myLot, the other would be personal emails, sometimes I would be doing surveys, and the other would be for my online store.

When I was a caregiver, I read or did my homework in between taking care of her, or I would clean the house. I did a lot to keep myself from being bored.

I am thinking about getting an Iphone this weekend. I like listening to music at work and it makes my day go by so much faster. I think music just generally puts people in a good mood. Normally I am not that bored because I do some stuff on the internet and I have messenger at work where I talk to my friend who is 2 hours away so e normally chat about different things.

I am work right now as well. I used to work at the office, and was much more busier there. Now, I work out of my home office, still 8a-5p, but I do seem to get bored more often. I tend to, like you, find interesting things online. Recently, I found mylot and have been spending those "bored" moments here. I am not sure what kind of work you do, but usually the social networking sites can help bring more business. Good luck.
