How to make life exciting?
It may sound silly and uninspired,but the reason why I mostly fail to take action is that I easily get bored and most tasks simply do not create enough suspence to arouse my interest.
I admit that I am an adrenaline junkie-I like to do things that seem to be insurmountable.
In order to regain my momentum,things have to be thrilling,goals and intentions have to be beyond mediocrity-you know what I mean?
The problem is that the normal course of life seems to be completly different.
To be honest school doesn´t really fall into that category,homework and exams are not enthralling at all.
Getting up,going to school,eating lunch,doing homework+learning,showering,going to bed...there´s nothing exciting about a daily routine like that...
How can I benefit from my addiction and make my everyday life,especially my time at school,more exciting?

Start sh&t! I feel the same way, so I've started lots of things: I now co-run a local writers' group with 40 members (we meet once a month and have speakers), run a local parents' group with 25 members (we meet twice a month), and run an animal welfare organization with more than 1,000 volunteers (creativePAW: Creative Professionals for Animal Welfare).
What are your interests and passions? Can you start a group relating to any of them? Meetup.com lets you organize a group for something like $13 per month, and you can get free business cards for your group at Vistaprint.com. (I got some for the parents' group to give out to parents with babies I see when I'm out.) You can start a book group, a gaming group, a group for Buddhist students -- whatever you want. That way you'll be doing what you love, sharing your passion with others, meeting new people, and undertaking an exciting challenge.

Read "Flow", by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. He gives examples of how even working in a factory a worker can avoid boredom by seeking to master their tasks.
