    i work weekends sometimes 1 day might be 2 from 9am till 4:30pm then the rest of my time is free and some of the time is spent playing games online doing house work if needed and doing online surveys and tasks on many sites to make some extra money they pay ok for how long it takes to complete them and they pay in usd so converted to nzd i make decent money i also sometimes make youtube videos sometimes i may do a few other things like go movies once and a while checkout second hand stores ect but that is about it

    i just been doing this for the last 5/6 years i need a change before i stir crazy

    Try making stuff (like a mod or level) for some of your fav games. It's fun to do (usually) and it helps you learn other skills (like 3d modeling, coding, art, engines, etc...) while keeping within your interests

    Add periods and commas to your post, capitalize your first letter in the sentence.
    Seriously tho, if you are bored because of your free time, try to learn something from library or internet. Or just simply study at University.

    I read the Christian bible, loved it, but somehow I am not comfortable going to a church lol.

    I similarly found myself without much to officially do most of the time.

    I usually find myself wandering around seeing what I can see. If you are indeed in kiwiland then you have just a few things to go see (and I doubt I here I would even accept "but I live here so" like I might for many others), especially if you can take a few days to go do it.

    I like to build things, fix things and create things. Many of these can be sold on for some profit, done on your own time and probably do better than surveys, certainly going to be more stimulating. The profit will maybe not be enough to justify it as a full time job but should be able to do things for extra pocket money.

    I also like to learn things. Usually things that further allow me to build, fix and create things but your choice here.

    Hit the gym and lift heavy things while listening to audiobooks or podcasts (Hardcore History, Joe Rogan etc). Maybe some yoga or meditation? Get a good cast iron pan and learn how to cook a steak properly and eat it too.

    Find your passion and, well, do that. No-one can really tell you what to do. Sure we could make hundreds of suggestions, but the only way you’ll enjoy spending your time doing something, is to do something which makes you happy.
