How do you pass time while being kinda forced to stay inside

So with several countries being in a lockdown or almost in a lockdown we're supposed to stay inside and only go outside to do groceries or to visit a doctor or for work (in case work hasn't been shut down). So what do you do to pass the time? Are you getting bored now you're kinda forced to stay inside or do you enjoy it more to be at home for a while? Do you do things you're supposed to do for a long time but always ignored? Or just wait impatiently till everything is back to normal again?
 
Being in lockdown is no different for me since I'm jobless scum and have no money.

The only difference is the guys I live with are here 24/7 too so we just work around each other.

I've taken to reading more but there's also more housework to do since everyone is home.

I feel caught in a weird loop of waking up and getting prepared for the day, go to work, maybe go grocey shopping when I get off, come home and fill that time with either gaming, watching a movie or show, or reading. Yesterday evening a friend came over and we hung out for a bit, so that was really nice to finally change the loop up.

Not going to lie, not being able to hang out with all my friends and go to the theater or go out for a few drinks, or just do a chilled get together at someone's house has lowered my morale. A few of my friends are immune compromised or have a spouse who is. All my other friends and I simply agreed it be for the best not to do a group get together during these times. It sucks, but it's like this for everyone who is being cautious.

it pretty much feels like my usual weekend ngl lmao
pretty much sleep, play something, study, repeat

the only difference is that other people are home 24/7 and this stresses me out a ****ing lot

I work on Youtube projects or finish games that I left sit for too long. Specifically Stardew Valley, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and a few visual novels that are longer than expected.

Unlike most in my area, I can go out in my neighbourhood and get exercise outside. I don't really go anywhere due to me having the virus. I wear a mask when outside, just in case. It wasn't as bad as a week ago and I'm almost recovered. But when inside I sing and I play games.

Honestly my life hasn’t changed at all since the quarantine thing started. I still just play video games and watch Greys Anatomy every day.

Considered essential (shouldn't be) so not really locked down but on my days off trying to stay home as much as possible except the once a week trip to the store. But I started that game nights thing to occupy everyone's mind with social interaction. On my own I am working on finishing more Zelda games and a drawing project I started years ago.

We're not so locked down we're not allowed to leave our homes. We can be outside in our yards and go to the park if it's not busy which they usually aren't.
While indoors I've been practicing drawing much more and things aren't much different for me anyway except I can't visit the stores I like.

As i work in the food production industry ( warehousing) i am classed as a key worker( although i feel the care workers , doctors ,nurses and even shop workers are more worthy of the title) so i am not actually locked down that much having said that i have enjoyed having my children around a lot more and have been playing links awakening with my 12 year old daughter who thanks to that game is now a massive Zelda fan , every cloud hey.:shrugs:

School, games, working out, reading, and practicing guitar. That’s really it, not much else to do.
