Background music or tv sometimes helps. Alternatively, a pet of sorts. Spider, mantis, snake, cat, dog, rodent

Plants can also help.
New hobbies as well. Basically, become your best friend. Make sure you enjoy your own company. Enjoy the freedom of doing whatever the heck you want in your own 4 walls.

get yourself a piece of wood and go ed, edd, and eddy with it. I'n all seriousness, keep your place to yourself, once this virus lifts, go hang outside and do stuff and crash at your place if you wind up alone for the night. Don't start inviting friends over unless you know they have places to be, otherwise you'll start collecting stray people. It may sound like they need your help at first and you'll get a high from helping them, but what those people really need is the ability to stand on their own two feet.

or Wilson, the volleyball. Again, in all seriousness, the pet thing is a good idea. Cat's are easy; just feed them, give them water and keep their litter box clean, try to keep their mind engaged (look at my post of the toy i built mine, you can do something similar with just the stick part, so it's free) and they can handle themselves. They'll cuddle with you when they want.

It sucks. I agree with all the dudes/ gyals. You need a pet. Get yourself an aquarium, a cat, a dog and why not a husband/ wife while you are at it. Its a joke btw. But a pet does make everything better.

Oh, I know it seems like I'm contradictory btw, as I've explained how I'll let people stay over in my crib, but it actually isn't, that's what all the chores are for. They teach and eventually something is found that they are good at then they can get a job doing that (even if that thing is just to work for work itself), and earn their feet back.

Well, I can't get a cat. Roommate (who actually owns the house) says no.
funkmasterrex · 2 weeks ago
Go get one anyway. They aren't hard to find. Claim it just found it's way in and a bond developed. You shouldn't have asked in the first place. Sometimes you gotta Nike it.

Except I'm living here rent free, and I respect him enough that I'm not gonna get a cat after he told me I probably shouldn't. There's quite a few expensive things in this house and I don't want to be responsible if the cat scratches anything, anyway.

What if they come to adore the cat?
funkmasterrex · 2 weeks ago
They always have the option to ask you to get rid of it, at that point yes, respect.

Make sure you have fun and make alternative choices
For example:
Movies =Netflix
Popcorn= microwave corn
Friends: Cartoon characters and puppets
also you can make phone calls to people so you can see them without actually seeing them (like Zoom :) )
Hope this helps :)

Yeah also pet ≠ cat
Meaning there's a whole lot of other alternatives :)
May I suggest a jumping spider? They're cheap, cute, smart, and you can actually develop a bond with them.
