Maybe you just didn't care enough?
Because you're so damn hyper that you've never had time to think about it.

Anything but, yo. I'm bored more often than not.

It's a very strong word in french. Children often say: "Maman je m'ennuie" ("Mom, I'm bored"). It's the feeling of not knowing what to do next, because everything look uninteresting, or not interesting anymore... seeking for excitement.
More new words for you to fight your boredom: "ça me fait chier" or "Je me fais chier". Which is the regular slang for the same thing :)
"ennui and malaise" is the story of my life for like the last four years :P
Bachelors in Computer Science?

Albanian comment on this is
(every intellectual have to have ennui and houka, i guess.)
Because you spent college starting a business rather than exploring the abyss?

I ph34r the youtube video spoofing "Needs more cowbell" as a response to this.
But we know it'll just never get finished.

You may have never started LiveJournal if you had :-)
Obviously you were never goth.
I didn't know it until I saw it on a license plate a couple years ago. The guy I was with thought I was rather dumb, I think.
"LJ founder has never heard of 'ennui'" sounds like a headline from The Onion.
Потрясающе. Только что прочла статью в российской прессе, где был указан этот блог. Блог создателя Живого Журнала. Я свой ЖЖ практически не веду, но все равно очень уважаю человека, создавшего все это ))))
