It can be exhilarating and quite frustrating too, sitting down at home when it seems that others have carried on with their daily activities.
The truth is that you needn’t let the feeling overwhelm you. There are things you can do within and around the city that can give you a deep sense of fulfilment while you wait on your dream job or admission to come through.
The city is home to a wide range of brick-and-mortar business. You can surely pick up a skill like tailoring, catering/culinary services, shoe making, hairdressing, weaving of Aso-Oke, bead making, barbing, phone repairing etc. It is a long list of skills you can learn and busy yourself with.

If you consider learning a skill beneath your status (which you shouldn’t), find a business organization that deals in your area of interest, you could go in and work. It may not be a paid job but when it is your area of interest, you can definitely enjoy the gift of leaving the house and going to meet something that really gladdens your heart.
For example, if you are running a publishing outfit, someday you could go on to Evans Publishers at Jericho or BookKrafts at Bodija to intern.
If you have a heart of gold that reaches out to help society become a better place to live, there are organizations where you can volunteer. There’s the MAYEIN Initiative, Area, Sozo Network, Life builders network, etc.
That will get you out of bed in the mornings and you’d return tired but also fulfilled that you’re channeling your energy into good causes.
