"he had never grown accustomed to the monotony of his work"
"he was sick of the humdrum of his fellow prisoners"
"he hated the sameness of the food the college served"
"an unglamorous job greasing engines"
"a humdrum existence; all work and no play"
"nothing is so monotonous as the sea"
She was living with some intensity, and escaping humdrum.
