Cope With Living in a Boring Town

Whether it is Irvine, Singapore, Vermont, or Laguna Niguel, there are still ways you can have a little more fun than you can expect in even the most boring residences! Boring towns can be depressing, and they can REALLY screw up your life and make you feel like a total loser and that you're missing out on all the fun, but DON'T WORRY!

    Explore as much as you can! Go to every restaurant, club (if there even is one), neighborhood, and at least TRY to find something exciting! Excitement won't just come to you, you've got to find it for yourself! If things are STILL not interesting, then try looking in every nook and cranny, or you could try graffiti (except that is vandalism, and is NOT recommended at all, DO NOT ATTEMPT, UNLESS YOU ARE REALLY WILLING TO).
    Make some friends! Even the most boring of places can have the most interesting people! Try meeting someone new, and you will be surprised of the outcome. There may not be much to do around town, but you can always watch movies or play video games and what-not. You can even try to get yourself in a relationship.
    Explore nearby places. There could be some other towns around your own that may be interesting, but don't always expect that you can just mosey on over there anytime you want. Laguna Niguel may seem close to Los Angeles, but it's still 20 hours away!! Try starting out with closer towns, and if you're not interested, then try aiming for even farther towns.
    Find out where everyone is hanging. Find where all the cliques are at and you may just find out where the fun is at!
    Persuade your guardian(s)/spouse to move. It may never work for many reasons, but if you're lucky...
    Complain to the Mayor. If you're lucky, he/she may accept your opinions about the town, but you have to NOT be rude no matter HOW much he/she has virtually "killed" your life. They may most likely not accept your opinion, especially if you're a teenager, so this option may be used as your last chance.
   Screw around! Go crazy! Go through the streets and cause trouble! (not recommended, your faults are your responsibility)
    Use the library...

    Dig out local history, look for "interesting characters and dark skeletons".
          o Visit the "interesting characters"
          o Rattle the skeletons.
    Dig out statistical data and maps. Look for those "Hey that's weird!" numbers and "I don't know whats there gaps" in maps.

    Talk to old folk about yesteryear, it's what made this year.
    Go "urban exploring.

     Don't give up! There has got to be something there for you to do! Nobody makes a town for nothing!
     If you plan on becoming a carpenter, you may gladly make whatever you wished your town had to compensate on it not being there in the first place. It would gladly save the town, and it's better to make others happy rather than just yourself.
     Some towns will be boring, but remember that it is never your fault :)
