Bored to death

I need something to focus on. My industry isn’t hiring so I haven’t worked since March and I’m bored out of my mind. If I wasn’t so depressed I’d work on my hobbies but everything feels like too much effort.

Music
Outside dancing
Disco ball or some lights sparking.
All Jamming out
Boom boom of the Bass.
Come On
Cutting yourself !
Are U looking for attention?

And grow some weed. Even if you don't smoke it. Very rewarding.

Literature. What an opportunity to read. As a busy adult you won't have this opportunity to read like this until retirement. This time next year when COVID-19 is a thing of the past, you will actually have something to say to people instead of the usual gossip and general stupidity.

What industry are you in OP?
Do you have particular tasks that you are drawn to?
I'm curious if I can find something to suggest that will help you do what you enjoy or do best.

I understand

It’s all well and good for people to tell you what to do to distract yourself from your own reality. Unfortunately, for those of us who don’t qualify for any type of subsidies, getting a paying job is our only chance! I was once completely shut out of the industry that I’d been in for 10+ years. I was unemployed during the financial crisis that resulted from the crash of the stock market at that time. It took 5 years for me to find another career, only to become physically disabled a few years later. So I truly do understand how you feel. I’m just ready this year to begin job hunting again, only to have Covid happen. Those of us in this situation qualify for absolutely nothing in terms of financial support from the government, because we were unemployed when it began. If things don’t improve soon, I’m going to have to declare bankruptcy and apply for welfare. I never dreamed I’d be in such a dark place.

I bought a guitar

And using YouTube, I've learned to play a few of my favorite songs. Some are easy, like Bod Seger's Hollywood Nights and others are more difficult, like Dear Prudence by the Beatles. Being bored is a choice. You'll never get that time spent back. And you may never get the time to do anything in the future.
