Sample Answer (A time you felt bored):
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to talk about a time when I felt bored. Usually, I am an extrovert persona so I don’t get bored when I am with people. However, there was one time I remember when I felt bored. It was one of my friends place. It was the summer vacation of last year and I got a semester break from my university.
So as it was my holiday I made a plan to visit my friend’s place as he had come from his army training. His name is Rohit. He is 27 and he is a tall and smart guy. Since his childhood, he wanted to join the Army. So after completing our higher secondary he joined Army. I was very excited as we didn’t meet each other for the last 4 years.
So I went to his place. It takes around 2 hours from my home to reach his home. As I reached his place he welcomed me and introduced me to his parents. So after that, we started talking about our childhood school life and we were getting nostalgic. Suddenly, he got a call from his cousin that they were having a party. Rohit insisted me to join with him to the party. First I refused to go with him as I am not one of his family members but he persuaded me so I went to the party with him.
As we reached the place a group of his cousins came and he introduced me to all of them. But after some time they took Rohit with them to another table where there were some of his other cousins were present. So I become alone and as I did not know anyone at the party I started feeling a little bored. I tried to keep myself busy by using my phone and having snacks, But I got bored with that too in some time. After about an hour my friend came back and I thought now it would be fun but unfortunately, he again started talking with his relatives.
I was not able to participate because I didn’t want to interrupt them and also I am not one of their family members. So I felt very bored and I wanted to leave but I couldn’t because it would seem rude. So, I could not leave and I had to stay till the party ends. I felt really bad but I understand that he had met his cousins after a long time and they had a lot of things to talk about.
I pretended to be enjoying myself at the party until the end. After 2 hours the party got over and my friend and I came back to his home. I didn’t tell him about that because he might felt bad. So after that, I talked with him for an hour and returned to my home.
So that was one time when I felt bored.
