Sample Answer 1

I am an extrovert, so there have been very less times where I got bored. However, I vividly remember a time when I went to my cousin’s place and got bored. It was during last year’s summer break. I had a few holidays from school/college.

So, I made a plan to visit my cousin who had come back from his navy training. His name is Mohit and he is 27 years old. He wanted to join the Indian navy ever since he was a child. I was extremely excited to meet him as we both had not seen each other for the last 5 years.

So, I went to his place and started talking about our childhood and we got nostalgic thinking about our memories. Suddenly he got a call from his college friends that they were having a get-together. He insisted me to come along with him to the party. I was reluctant, but he persuaded me and we both got ready and went to the party.

As soon as we reached, a group of his friends came, and he introduced me to all of them. But after some time, they took my cousin with them to another table where there were some other friends. I did not know anyone at the party, so I felt a little bored and left out. I kept myself engaged by using my phone and having snacks, but I got bored with that too in some time. In about an hour, my cousin came back along with his friends and I finally thought that it would be fun now, but they started to talk about their friend circle and what the others were doing in their life.

I was not able to participate in the discussion, and so I felt out of place and bored. I could not leave, as it would seem rude, and so I had to stay with them till the end of the party. I felt really bad that I was left out, but then I also realized that my cousin had met his friends after a very long time, and they had things to talk about and catch up with each other.

So, I just pretended to be enjoying myself. In another hour the party got over and my cousin and I came back home. Even though I had felt very bored but seeing him happy made me happy too. So, I decided not to tell him about it. So, this was the time when I was with people and got bored.

Sample Answer 2

I remember when I was in high school there were some classes that I found to be boring. in particular, one class, which was grade 10 history, was a total drag.  Time just seemed to stand still while being there, and there were several reasons why it happened. The classroom setting was one thing that I didn’t appreciate at all. I was assigned to sit in the back corner of the classroom, and because of the room design I had only one person sitting next to me who I could only communicate with. However, this guy, whose name was Jim, was very introverted and uninteresting, so it was harder than normal to start up an interesting conversation with him. 

Somedays in that class, I recall that I may have never even said a word, which was quite different than my other classes. Another thing that made this situation so tedious was the dull teacher – Mr. Deeb. From what I remember, the content of the subject seemed somewhat interesting, but the way that he presented wasn’t. This teacher spoke so slowly and with a monotonous voice, so much so that I often spent my time daydreaming instead of concentrating. I don’t think I was alone with my boredom either. The students, on the whole, appeared to be disengaged, and unfortunately, Mr. Deeb didn’t make any in-class adjustments as he just 

kept to his some old boring script. It’s a shame that this all happened. Learning about history can be very interesting, but that year I lost motivation to study it, which made everything even harder. The teacher expected us to memorize a lot of important dates from history. To do well on tests, I really needed to push myself, but at times, I felt that studying was pointless. Fortunately,  now I find reading and watching documentaries about history to be pretty fascinating. But back in grade 10, I dreaded entering the door of that classroom, because I found it to be the most boring place in the world. Thank you. That’s all I have to say.
