There is certainly nothing wrong with wanting routine in your life and having control over your plans and goals. However, there is a thin line between being in control and taking everything so seriously that you become boring. People tend to associate with lively individuals who bring out the best in them – not with those they find boring, or with whom they barely have anything to talk about. If you are concerned about this issue, read these seven signs that you may be a boring person, and what can you do to change that:
1. You Are Happy When Your Friends Cancel Plans
Have you noticed that lately you started to feel happy when your friends cancel plans for dinner or for going out on Saturday night – when you used to enjoy spending quality time with those close to you? We all have our moments when we want to spend some time alone, watching TV and eating junk food – and that is perfectly normal. However, if you have started to spend more time alone than in the company of your friends, this may be a sign that you are becoming a boring person, and you should do something about it while you still can.

Vaseline — Robert Chesebrough
Robert Chesebrough was the guy who invented petroleum jelly and named it Vaseline. The young chemist made his discovery in Pennsylvania on an early oil rig. Workers complained about the “rod wax” that clogged up their drills. Chesebrough took some back to his lab — and found that distilling it produced a light colored gel. He patented the process of making it in 1872, and the rest is history. Chesebrough claimed Vaseline as a miracle healing product — and even ate a spoonful of it every day!
Corn Flakes — John Harvey Kellogg
Corn Flakes are still one of the world’s most popular cereals. But did you know how long they’ve been around for? This breakfast food was first invented in 1894! It came about when a team of Seventh-Day Adventists set out to develop new foods for the vegetarian diet that is part of their faith. Dr John Harvey Kellogg and his younger brother had left out some cooked wheat. By the time they came back, the wheat had staled — but they came up with idea of pressing it through rollers — hoping to get long sheets of dough. Instead they got flakes! So they toasted them up and served them to patients of the sanitarium they ran.

The “Rocket’s Theme” song in ‘Despicable Me’ was written by Pharrell in honor of his son. He stated, “Contrary to popular belief, Rocket’s middle name is not Man. But Elton John’s “Rocket Man” song was a part of it, and also Stevie Wonder’s “Rocket Love.”“
