Is there any awesome word for this above mentioned phrase?

EDIT: I understand, what you people are getting at, but what I want is somewhat uncommon and cool sounding, and the term should preferably not be generic. "Grow weary through monotony" is the most appropriate term I have found from the answers, but I want single word. I will wait a while for a more appropriate one, before marking one. "Bored" is too generalized.

  • Sicken might work – as in 'he sickened of the task'. Although, it doesn't imply he once found the task interesting. Oct 6 '15 at 10:11

    Or possibly wearied (of the task) - which can mean a loss of interest as well as physical tiredness.

  • I think wearied works well. Or simply tired. Oct 6 '15 at 10:41
  • Isn't this simply getting bored?

I'd suggest weary.

weary:

  1. to make or become weary; fatigue or tire.

  2. to make or grow impatient or dissatisfied with something (often followed by of): he wearied of living in hotel rooms; he had wearied of teaching in state universities.(Random-House)

Alternatively, jade might fit the bill.

jade:

  1. to tire or dull through repetition or excess

  2. to become weary or dulled (Merriam-Webster)

Monotony may suggest the meaning you are referring to:

  • Lack of variety and interest; tedious repetition and routine.

    • The tedious monotony of his job did not deter him from being innovative.

There is "to become 'disillusioned' with something

adjective

1 - having lost one's ideals, illusions, or false ideas about someone or something; disenchanted

Similarly "to become 'disenchanted' with something'

adjective

1 -disappointed or disillusioned

www.dictionary.com

Both of these do capture the meaning that something was once relished or appreciated but that is not now the case...
