You never has to be bored in SL, there is always something going on. Hunts for example, loads of them! One hunt right now is The Fearless Hunt run by the PTSD society:
We are an international multicultural community of PTSD and trauma survivors, offering PTSD education and support for PTSD ppl, their families, friends, and clinicians.
Be fearless! Fearless nation oak beach:
Another hunt is the Sleigh Hunt wich seems a bit more christmas oriented. SLurl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Carriage%20Trade%20North/10/252/33
