PAULINE PERENACK's "Iunne Ennui" evokes chagrin and regret. "Iunne ennui" means "officially... being tired, bored, and full of surprises," according to Merriam-Webster.com. What's to Come (French) History and origin Old French enui, most likely from the previous generation. It was used as a polite term for surprise visitors. Middle English also has envy as a meaning of enui. Related words ENNUI can be frustrating and irritating, but it can also be exciting and enthralling.
The French term "ennui" refers to a state of mind that combines exhaustion and boredom. Ennui is one manifestation of "the blahs." Though it may seem a little fancy—perhaps because it is French—ennui is a normal sensation that everyone has: being bored and tired. It is only when these feelings persist for too long that they become a problem.
Ennui is usually experienced as a vague sense of dissatisfaction or depression. Some people describe it as a feeling of emptiness or lack of interest in life. Others say they feel sleepy all the time or have trouble concentrating.
In its mildest form, ennui can be cured by taking care of yourself by having some relaxation time or going out with friends. If your ennui becomes more severe, you should see your doctor and find out the cause of your problem.
"Ennui" is about boredom rather than aggravation, and it's a specific kind of boredom at that. It mainly refers to the jaded mood that might emerge from living a life that is too easy. One writer described ennui as "that weary feeling experienced when everything is said and done and there is nothing new to hope for." Another called it a "spiritual anorexia" because of its link to depression. Still another defined it as the state of being bored with one's own life.
The word comes from the French word "ennuyer," which means "to be bored or tiresome." Boredom is a normal part of life but chronic boredom can lead to ennui. People who experience ennui feel that their lives are no longer exciting or stimulating. They may even wish that they could change something about their circumstances!
In today's world, many people have this problem with boredom. With almost anything you can think of having been already done, our culture is filled with excitement and innovation. However, some people find this type of environment exhausting and distracting. They feel like there's always something new and different that they need to try and keep their minds occupied. This inability to focus on one thing for long amounts to a mental illness called attention deficit disorder (ADD).
Boredom: a state of complete exhaustion and dissatisfaction caused by fullness or a lack of interest The never-ending lectures resulted in terrible boredom. The word comes from the Greek ennui, which means "out of tune," or "without spirit."
Ennui is the feeling of emptiness, loss, or general disinterest that arises when there are no more interesting things to do or see than what there already are or have been.
The ennui epidemic is seen as one of the problems of modern life. According to some psychologists, it is due to increased efficiency, which leads to doing the same thing every day, resulting in stagnation and boredom. Others say it is due to the fragmentation of people's lives, which makes them look for entertainment outside their family unit.
There are several ways to overcome ennui, such as going to parties or events, taking trips, etc. Doing these things will not only give you pleasure but also make new experiences that you can tell your friends about later. Of course, there are also drugs that can help you sleep or take your mind off your troubles, but they should never be used as a solution to boredom.

Bon, ennuyeux, ennuyeuse (boring)/bon/mauvais (bad) - depending on what you are saying it offends or not.
There is no exact translation for ennuyeux in English. It's usually described as boring or dull.
Boring subjects include politics, economics, and science. The last two are also called dry subjects because you can't interest someone in them. In literature, history, and philosophy, they are called dull because that is what people used to think about them.
In fact, everything is relative. If something interesting or exciting happens to you or someone you know, it will change the way you feel about it. Same thing with boring things: if they cause you pain or anguish, they won't be boring anymore.
That being said, there are ways to make almost any topic more interesting. The trick is to find out what motivates people, what they care about, and how you can connect these topics with other ones that you believe will attract them.
In a partnership I'm passionately in love with an adjective. Enormous. Their eyes meet over the horizon and down into their souls where they find only love and admiration. But it's hard to keep your heart safe when you're living in a world where everyone wants to destroy your mind and steal your soul. When evil finds its way into your life, it can be hard to see clearly. However, these two lovers have been through so much together that they know what is real love and what is false.
Enomorada means "enraged or furious at someone who is loved."
It's interesting how one word can have so many different meanings depending on its context. In this case, "enormous" and "evil" provide the necessary framework within which we can understand what "enomorada" means. If we replace those words with something less dramatic (but no less important), then the meaning of the term changes completely. A person who is enraged at another for no good reason is not thinking clearly and cannot be said to be acting lovingly.
