    Chickens... I could eat the eggs, and they are small enough and slow enough that I might have some success hunting them.

    If I'm alone, I'd probably largely live on what I could catch in the sea. I'd prefer some sort of auroch but I don't know if I could butcher that myself. Smaller game is often rather lean.

    I think traps would be the way to go.

    I like to move around (hike. swim), day dream, etc. I never get bored.

    I would rejoice in not being alone on an island with no medical care with broken bones.

    I'm sure I could amuse myself wandering around looking for yummy plants and swimming in the ocean.
