    If there's a specific time frame

    "I was bored last tuesday"

    you would use passe compose, je me suis ennuyeE

    I think the person ahead of me is a female, so you would need another e after (it implies a feminine speaker when using passe compose with etre)

    However if you are just making a general statement, or are STILL bored, I would use the imparfait:

    je m'ennuyais

    I'd have to agree that "je m'ennuyais" is the best way to say that at some un-named date in the past you were bored.
