I guess it's the old saying "the grass is greener" approach. I know that there is something bigger and better out there and i'm too worried about getting that and can't enjoy what I have now.
It's really interesting what you wrote because I'm 24 also and I feel like I could have written those words myself. It's very strange to discover someone else is having the exact same problems as you! Maybe it's 20-something angst. Quarter-life crisis. I don't know but it seems like this time of life is fraught with a lot of existential anxieties. I'm still in university finishing a master's in piano and I've been doing the same thing for seven years so I definitely know the feeling of being bored sick and wanting to do something different. In my case though there's an incentive to stick with it because over the long term you can make great gains. It's something that you continue to get better and better at your whole life and that can be very rewarding. Maybe what you need to do is find some career that will challenge you in that way. Where there's a lot of room for growth so that you have an incentive to stick with it, and it also doesn't get boring as much because there's always another level of achievement to attain.
It's understandable that you're bored. I think most 9-5 jobs ARE really boring and I guess some people don't mind that. But you don't have to be bored with your life. You don't have to do a boring 9-5 job just because it's what everyone else does. Maybe there is more to life that you just haven't discovered yet. Maybe you need to find something that you're really passionate about.
While identify with what you say about being bored with "things", I don't think I could ever be bored with life itself. There's so much that is fascinating and strange. This thread from another forum is interesting:
