A Boring State of Mind

Well, since this is my first post, I suppose I should really set the tone for what this blog will be all about. But since I don't know that yet, I guess I'll just make stuff up as I go.
I'm writing this blog because I lead a boring life, and I need something to do. What this means for me is that I will have something to do. What this means for any alleged readers is that you will be bored out of your mind and probably have already given up reading this blog after the first, overly-obvious sentence.
The main reason my life this summer is boring is that I have a summer job. Not usually a great reason in and of itself for such epic bouts of boredom, but this is not just any job. I work at an insurance company. See, I almost fell asleep just typing that. All I do all day is issue insurance policies. (Since a lot of information I deal with is sensitive, I can't go too in depth, but I can be general.) Honestly, the most depressing thing about my job is that I have to read what the insurance agents write about clients. It's so sad to read what they say about these people, as though they aren't human, just so they can see whether they should approve the policy. When you're debating whether a person who had cancer in the past should be granted life insurance as though he was just a dog who needs to be put down, I'm pretty sure you're going to hell. I know I'm being too harsh on these people, it is their job after all, but whatever, I hate my job so I might as well hate theirs too.
So that's my first post, I guess, and I hope you enjoyed it. I think it was too whiny. I don't owe you anything.
