I'm So Boring!

I used to tell my friends that people only get bored because they are boring people. Usually I can find something to do to interest myself because I find so many things interesting. So I'd say things like, "there are no bored people, only boring people"...

Now at school the students tend to misuse this word, it's part of Konglish. "I'm so boring!", they complain. And I'm like...uh...well no, you're bored, not boring. Of course in the back of my mind I'm thinking, yeah you're boring, but I can't teach it that way. They also do the reverse, "The movie was so bored." There's a general rule that may not always apply, but generally people are bored and things are boring. Example, I am bored with this boring blog entry.
