Obviously, staying home is a million times different than doing all of those activities. It's different than camp, job, etc. It's a lot more free and I get to do what I want to do. There's practically no structure, no rules besides my mother's basic demands and everything.
It's a little dull sometimes, a little slow, though. Obviously, there isn't nearly as much going on. My mind isn't nearly as stimulated. I feel a little bored sometimes like I'd rather be doing anything but be at home. The gym helps with that a bit but not really.
At the same time, though, that almost feels good. My mind almost gets to relax. I get to experience a little bit of a break, not having to worry about anything at all. I also feel much more well-rested than when I'm not at home. I also get a lot of writing time in (or sometimes not that much of all when I'm not all that into it). In a lot of ways, it's great and in a lot of ways not.
