"semi-gay" -> bisexual
"semi-NEET" -> impossible, you either are or you aren't
"semi-hikki" -> that's called "introversion" kid
>>3889>"semi-hikki" -> that's called "introversion" kid
I'm afraid to inform you that the definition of hikikomori (according to the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare) is:>「仕事や学校に行かず、かつ家族以外の人との交流をほとんどせずに、6か月以上続けて自宅にひきこもっている状態」 時々は買い物などで外出することもあるという場合も「ひきこもり」に含める
"Somebody who doesn't go to school nor work, doesn't interact with people outside the family circle, and hasn't left their home for at least 6 months. Cases such as people under this condition who still leave their home to buy groceries from time to time are also considered 'Hikikomori'".

Meaning that you can't be a "semi-hiki" -> that's called "bullshit".
>>3889>"semi-gay" -> bisexual>"semi-hikki" -> that's called "introversion" kid
Correct, no one says "semi-gay", because it's ridiculous, they'd also be "semi-straight", they call themselves "bisexual", for the same reason "semi-hikki" does not exist, you're just introverted.
Uboachan is a fountain of self discovery isn't it?

I'm pretty sure we took the word hikki in ww2 and it is our right to do whatever we want to to it colloquially

I'm going to pretend you actually didn't say that.

Maybe you mean "my"? For example, N.E.E.T. is a definition coined by UK's and ever since then everyone has agreed on its meaning and used it the same way UK has been doing since the very start. Because otherwise you'd get things like "semi-neet" being valid because "guess what, I have my right to do whatever i want to it colloquially".
Hikikomori is just a translation of "Social Withdrawal"; you can't be "semi-withdrawal" because that simply doesn't make sense. Why just don't say "asocial" or "introvert" instead of using flashy words?
In hindsight I'm ashamed of my aggressive shitposting.
I personally don't like dealing with the semantics of labels in situations like this because it drives people away from the actual context of the original statement. I just try to take someone saying they are a "semi-hikki" as someone trying to relate their feelings to another persons experience. To me this brings up the question, do people here want to be related to?
I spent over 90% of my year alone in my room so far and even I have difficulty calling myself a hikki but no difficulty calling myself a semi-hikki.
>he internet plunged it's genitals straight through your skull and into your brain
This is a real problem for many issues in my life I'm sure, I've seen it in others.
I guess I don't want to call myself a hikki because I wish I had way more of a life than I do.

Be right back, Anon, I'm going to draw some shitty rule 34 of the Internet itself violently skullfucking aspie chan memesters. Get your lube ready, you're gonna need it!!
Yea, the Internet has fucked up a lot of people. Or rather, the combination of digital isolation and fucked up people with a greater reach did.
I used to come here when the big Jay was having problems with funposting back in '13. Been feelin it lately.
I'm almost 36, been fighting a delaying action against society rushing in but I'm not sure how long I'll last. I've been staring into the abyss for the long haul. Can't work under these conditions psychologically; I see everyone turning against me, stealing sleep from me, creating noise.
You clearly have some sort of mental affliction. Get help while you still can and candidly talk about it with your parents and anybody who cares. Don't drop out of uni. Switch majors if you have to, but don't let your emotional state get the better of you. What's distracting you most right now? What's preventing you from having enough energy? If it's your laptop, throw it away and use the computer lab/ library as needed.
There is clearly something fishy. Let yourself checkout, since your condition changed suspiciously far too quick.
26 and still kicking.
Just got out from a really bad period of life which lasted for a year. Move out from parents and got a job. A simple one though, a stock associate. Long hours, gruelling work, meagre pay, but honestly, after bumming around for a year, wallowing in my own despair and depression, this job maybe for the best - at least i dont have that much time for a "depressive self-reflection spiral" thing.
Its not a good life, but much better than i had.
nice job, anon
i hope you can at least beat my high score of working for only 5 months at a time
>>4900>spending money on mobages
Holy shit, stop. You can play actually good games right now without spending a dime.
Thanks, mate. Its been about 1.5 months now for me. I have no idea if I'll be able to reach your record. Especially cuz I know two of my fave colleagues will be leaving sooner or later. >>4900
I'm lucky the mobages I wanna play aren't available in Euroland, otherwise Id be in the same boat. Now I just spend it on Manga, doujin and clothes mostly lol
But I don't really care about PC or console games anymore aside from a solid few titles. I got used to being left out of the gaming scene since all I had was a potato PC and no consoles outside of a psp back when I didn't have any money.
i want to go back 6 years and change everything
i want to go back 23 years and change everything
28, started having trouble fitting in when I was only 8
Trouble began 10 years. Holy fuck, nobody can choose their family and what people you get exposed to, when you're still young. And mine got fucked up suddenly back then.
PFFT, I'm 27 and started having troubles at 4.
Jesus Christ, I thought I had it bad.
turning 15 in a few days
I’ve already been a complete hikki for 2 years (no homeschooling at all) out of depression and have recently started going to a school in south east London for kids with mental health issues. However, i’ve recently only went 2-3 days a week and get scared to go home out of fear of being kidnapped/raped. I want to be an engineer when i’m older….
How fucked am I?(USER WAS BANNED FOR BEING UNDERAGE)
Rules are rules, if it's less than three years, the staff would be admitting they let little kids browse the site.
20 but I feel 60.
I wonder if this poster is legal now…
Absolutely based child-mind poster.
dodged /neet/ by volunteering weekly, but stopped going so here I am. Spent so much time doing nothing when I could be doing so much, want to get a job so I can get more of a grip on my life. At the very least I'll have money.>>671
Must have been around 2010, so 10 or 11.
19, 20 in September. >>671
10, but I never played it until I was 12.
30 year old whose mentally 8 reporting in.
25 now, I've been bordering hikki for a while but have been in education most of the time to some degree. Weirdly finding these hikki threads recently has helped my mindset towards it all, instead of having this terrible guilt and shame all the time I can now put a name on it and have been dealing with it a little better for now at least
I turned 18 this February
currently 19, turning 20 this October
The jobs I've had that weren't too bad for that were doing warehouse work (heads up though this is fucking miserable) and medical transportation. Most of your time in medical transportation is spent on the road and roughly half of that is by yourself (or with a partner or two if you're an EMT/Paramedic) and when you're just a basic wheelchair van driver the other half is mostly just driving little old folks home or to rehab. It's kind of a comfy job and I've been enjoying it. Definitely worth looking into.
