You are wrong.
History is life. It's the cumulative story of a species that can wield pure imagination against reality and, on occasion, win. It is the sum of the human experience, the grave tragedy and the euphoric victory of living on the thin crust of this Earth. History is the words and thoughts of every person since the first tick of time.
No, we don't have the whole story yet. No, we don't know every little detail. But millions of people are putting it together as they make their own histories every single day.
How can you be bored?
The trick is finding what you're interested in. Everyone has a question. Everyone has a journey. Everyone has a problem they are stuck on, a challenge they struggle to overcome, a passion that they draw breath for.
There were more before you. And there will be more after you.
Someone, "back then," asked the same questions as you. They ate food, they drank water, their hands made things out of nothing, just like yours do. They mulled over similar problems, felt similar feelings, loved similar souls and hated similar enemies. Maybe they were average for their time, and maybe they led millions. Maybe they succeeded, and maybe they failed.
Stories is what we have, and stories is what we are.
History isn't boring. You're just not paying attention.
