What exactly do the people who live in the castle do. What are their daily jobs and daily activities? What makes up their life?

Merlin will most likely post a reply for you.
But just have a wee look down a few places under your question.
The site is only like a book, have a look through its pages. You will find most of the stuff you want is already there.
Happy hunting.

The questions you asked are not very specific, so I can't provide specific answers. As Peter suggested, you'll find heaps of information about daily life in a castle if you skip through the discussions in this forum...

For a general impression – this is what the poet Oswald von Wolkenstein (1377 - 1445) wrote about his life on castle Hauenstein (South Tirol):

«My life is a misery, I have to worry about my bread, I don't see anything except calfs, goats, rams, cows and clumsy people, black, ugly, sooty from heating; I don't hear anything except the cries of the donkeys and the peacocks, and the castle is always full of sorrow and bad news.»
[translated from J. Zeune, Burgen – Symbole der Macht, p. 171]

A bit pessimistic perhaps, but living in a small castle in the mountains sure wasn't pure luxury at the time...
