I made a friend on here about a year ago, only person I could really talk to about a lot of the things I couldn't with other people. I stopped talking to him and I don't know why. For all I know he could be dead now, he was pretty suicidal. I met him on here actually. Matt if you're still on here, if you could find it in you to be my friend again, add me on my new skype

I did this repeatedly—pretty much every fucking subject. Maybe people like us need to experience a menial job to realise the value of education. I'm NEET again now but I will be applying for shitty jobs soon. I'm going to save up enough money to go back in a few years and make a proper attempt, unlike what I did in undergrad.

Any fellow NEETs nearing 30? Or beyond? Or do we call those 'street people'?

I don't communicate regularly with other shut-ins, but from what I've seen on various NEET/Hikki boards, things begin to feel extra lonely the further you get from the 18-25 age range.

I was half jokingly implying that NEETs who outlive their parents usually end up homeless, because they presumably haven't been working for many years, don't have any substantial savings, and are deemed unemployable by that time because of their age combined with lack of education and work history.

Obviously not everyone who identifies with the term NEET meets that criteria, and I realize that. Hell, I'm envious of those who don't.

Anyway, if you wouldn't mind sharing, what circumstances have allowed you to live as a middle aged NEET shut-in without being poor?

I am 27; 28 next month.

Dropped out of college back in 2007, and did some background extra work sporadically until 2009, and then did 15 hours in a convenience store. Was moved out into small apartment in 2010, where I have simply existed, ever since!

I took great advantage of isolation to begin with, beating lots of good games and stuff, but ultimately became deranged and sort of nonsensical and out of my mind. I ended up looking for lots of psychiatric help, and talked for hours to countless people, but nothing was ever "done" and so it was just the talking as therapy in the end. Actually helped, I guess, as getting out a lot of my childhood issues stopped them from "formulating" inside me any longer, and now I don't even remember what I would have brought up had I gone to the doctors.

I stopped visiting weed dealers in early 2011, but smoke weed I find on the ground (there is a lot of weed smoked around here) and that is completely fine with me. I get high for free, but without any schedule attainable, I live a less weedbound and much more freeform life, these days. For some years now it's just been me, extremely aware of a slow reality, in this apartment.

I read and post online, while uploading music/videos of photos I take to various sites to share the creative things I *do* still manage to conjure up (harder than ever to make things, these days.)

I used to post here, even, but have only just dropped in to leave a relic of my passing, after many untold months.

I have 1 AFK friend from high school whom I hang with maybe once a month, and my dad maintains textual communication via his iPhone and emails, to my great irritation on many occasions, which he will never be aware of, because he does not live here to see how incensed I may become.

Hey, uboachan, how's it goin', you look thinner than I remember…

I'm not a NEET yet, but I'm gonna be one in a few months when the government stops paying for my shit in uni. I'll most likely either drop out and commit suicide a few months in due to poverty, or go in debt and kill the self when I become unable to pay it off after I graduate.

I guess i'm not technically a neet, since im posting this in school right now, but I am a hikkimori (or atleast the most I can be at my age) I cant stand people, I feel repulsed being here at all. My friend on skype who is in his 3rd year training to become a psychologist thinks that I have schizotypal personality disorder (basically paranoid schizophrenia but now as bad) Im not sure why im writing this other than to not want to freak out being aorund people. General complaint thread I guess. I told my mom i have bad anxiety about 4 months ago (I havent told her about the delusions and paranoia or frequency) I keep asking her to take me to a psychologist because 3 months ago she called to see if insurance would cover the cost (they cover it all) yet I still havent gone. My parents want me to get a summer job yet I have done that before and I am not in a place for that level of responisbility and work I would have breakdowns all the time. I just want to recieve Neetbux when im an adult and have them never know so they wont be so dissapointed. They are good people but they just dont understand me or the things im dealing with (and probably dont believe them) This place is one of the few nooks and crannys on the web where I dont hate people, so thanks for that and this community. I really dont know why i wrote this but it atleast gave me something to do. sorry. thanks for listening

22 year old ex-military neet (for the last 26 months) here

does anyone know of any jobs/careers that are:
- low responsibility
- low stress
- low social requirements
- do not involve driving or operating machinery

i have driving license, but i avoid driving, since it's too stressful.

i'm about to just ship myself off to some offshore fishery process ship for X amount of months, because i'm going to run out of money soon.

can anyone help me find a job? i have experience with integrated avionics/flight controls for bombers in the military, but that's literally it, nothing else. i didn't even enjoy that stuff though.

i'm thinking a janitor job would be good for a small building or office?

Low level (unarmed) security. This involves, at most, taking walks every hour and checking people in. At best, you can find an overnight position where you can sit around with your laptop all day. I have one such job. The dream is real.

Well, my landscaping experience limits itself to a golf course and I was in a small team of 15 full time workers.
I would mow greens every morning for 4-5 hours, and the rest was whatever job was needed to be done, from laying sod and cleaning tree wells to shoveling new sand into bunkers. It hard on my body at first but I got used to it. The people I met there were also super relaxed, enjoying the sunlight, taking care of plants, drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes while talking about TV shows or old movies.

It all comes down to luck to be honest, but I wouldn't recommend applying to jobs for landscaping contractors as those can be a lot more stressful(but you might get more money). I'm not trying to be rude here, but maybe what you need is a "mundane" job where you take care of things. Maybe it will do you good as much as it did for me.

Don't be fooled I use to be a night and second shift stocker. Night shift sounds like it would be easy going but its so much harder since no customers are in the store you do all the major stocking then.

Hi /n/, first time I come here.

I'm here because I don't know what I should do anymore. I have been a neet for around a year now and I can't say I am enjoying it nor dislisking it because of how I was kind of enjoying doing what is fun to me aka video games and watching animes mainly but seems like endless circle since I keep moving from a thing to another to kill boredom. On the other side, often when I go sleep now I feel like I am pitiful being a burden to my parents since I still live there even if there's a lot of pressure. I am almost 21 now and could probably not be able to live alone.

Background: started middle of high school when I switched school and slowly got more and more shy and introverted. School skipping started and even though I was skipping a lot I was able to maintain above average grades and get done with high school but then pre-university/post-high school came by and started failling classes because of skipping/lack of interest since I was always alone and kinda lost about where I was going.
Friend wise, after mid high school when I moved and lost contact with my friends from back then I didn't make any friends, I wasn't shy to the point of not being able to hold a conversation but I would never go forward to people nor bring anyone higher than people I know level. I also always had the feeling that I am the only one alone and everyone is in groups and that always scared me from trying to make friend with anyone. I do make friends online from a game to another but even though I have a lot of fun with them with game related things, I never thought those as friends but only gaming buddies for a specific game and once I find a better game I just move on to other people.

Now, like I said, I don't feel like I am living a fulfilled life because I do not have someone dear to me and also because of the burden I am to others. I am a smart guy who could probably just go back to studies whenever to aim for a job I could enjoy a little while not having to worry about money. However, I don't feel like having motivation to do anything as it is now. I see people around me who aim for great goals and had family expecting me to be the "successful kid" but I am underachieving and I don't know what to expect from anything… Almost like I am waiting for the enlightment which isn't happening.

Well if you're not happy, there is no science you have to change your shit sir.
There is this invisible villian, time, time is a bitch, if you keep this going it will eat months or years of your life with lots of things that you would have wanted to do and you won't recover it, sure you can try to do these things, but it's not the same, if time eats a part of your life, it's gone.
You know what you need, motivation, you have no ambitions or "things to do things for".
Can you imagine how you would be happy? A goal
A family? Maybe economical freedom? Nothing?

If you have no reason to motivate you to live, What if you make finding this reason your motivation?

If anything, you're not ok as NEET, and time is eating you, so anything, watever even if it's stupid is better than staying there playing games.

Sorry to interject, since I'm not a NEET, but if that doesn't bother you then I can tell you what I did. I hope it helps you in some way.

During and after High School I felt like you. I still do; zero motivation for anything, applying only the minimum effort possible and trying to interact as little as I can. I love computers and spent most of my life in front of one, either with games, anime or learning, so I decided that if I wanted to do something, it should be related to either hardware or software. As probably many of us, I thought it would've been nice to work in the game industry, but I really lack imagination and motivation to work in such projects, and I really wouldn't be able to cope with working on a team with other people, and, as you can see, working alone isn't a possibility since I can't really do music and/or find a goal as to what accomplish as to really get some demo or something.
Either way, I enjoy fixing and working with computers, or generally being around them. It's really nice, people don't really bother you unless they're interested in what's going on (if you want them to go away you just have to talk 1337), and you're basically your own boss. I then just checked what careers in college could get me involved me with them and found Electronic Engineering as the only option. Since I don't have too much problems with math and physics (which seems to be the "hard" part), it seemed worth to give it a shot, and the word "engineer" holds some kind of mystical value in nowadays society, so it was a plus.

Truth be told, I really don't know what I'm really going to do after I finish this stuff. There is an Atomic Center here in my city, and I've heard they're taking ex-students who finished college to work there, but I have the impression that it's going to be really stressful and I'm not sure if I will be able to make it. It feels more like I'm making excuses with these "life projects" so people don't bother me rather than doing what something for myself. Being honest, I hardly doubt I will make it after my 30's. I really dislike how this stuff is organized, and I'd rather be alone doing nothing.
However, here in my country I get paid for going to college, so that too is an extra help (for which I'm pretty grateful). And learning new things is good too, even when I look around and realize I'm alone while everybody is in their own circles. While it doesn't bother me, it just makes me realize at what point I'm slowlPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Good. That's the right thing to feel.

>I can't say I am enjoying it nor dislisking it because of how I was kind of enjoying doing what is fun to me aka video games and watching animes mainly but seems like endless circle

It is an infinite cycle.
Remember: your (and everyone else's) subconscious mind actively rejects all change in behavioral patterns, unless it finds a new pattern that offers stronger, more immediate gratification.

>I don't know what I should do anymore

They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
Are you not OK with where you are in life? I know I enjoy wasting my time on internet/computer stuff and video games. It wasn't until I found my first (really boring) job that I started to think I deserved a bit more from life and had to try doing something about it.

Until you know clearly what you want and realize that you really want it, I don't think there can be any meaningful change.

The future freaks me out.
However some things have come up and I am in the center of a real life RPG starring me. We are all people and as people we should have goals and aspirations we want to reach. And thats what I want to talk about in this thread.
My goals are general, but my dream is to storyboard, draw, or even animate stories for a living. And things have stunted me from this forever in my life including my own insecurities. I take design classes (Im not a NEET as some of you probably know, as this is a tiny board) and even then I feel stifled. Im going to be moving out of my home soon, and I have a new start coming. For that reason I want to hear whats up with all of you.

I've read that taking the same amount of food and splitting it into more meals per day will raise your metabolism and help you lose weight naturally. If you eat too little it's your muscle mass that goes first.

 No.14439

>>14436
Bothof those are bullshit.
You can't raise or slow your metabolism as you please. It does vary depending on your muscle tone but by as little as 50-200 calories. That's about the amount in a waffle cup of vanilla ice cream.

Your body only starts eating muscle primarily after your fat storage is depleted. That's why anorexia is so deadly, you can literally eat your heart. Other than extreme restriction (less than 500 calories for months) will not lead to any significant muscle loss.

>Both of those are bullshit.
Actually, the "taking the same amount of food and splitting it into more meals per day" is true. Some athletes eat every 3 hours smaller amounts of their "normal share" and supply the "lack" with more stuff that compensates the nutrients their body need for they sports. The thing is, the size of this share, and what food they're eating (which helps to incorporate said nutrients) are decided by a nutritionist which knows how many calories their patients use and what their body need, so that's why it doesn't work for most of people, since they actually don't know exactly what they're getting from what they eat.
(If anything, the part about regulating the metabolism isn't true; at least I don't really think it holds such power).

Athletes [like bikers or runners] need to eat often because they are burning many calories and need the food to not pass out while exercising. But let's be honest, most of us are not athletes or physical laborers and don't need super frequent meals for performance, or as many calories as an athlete is eating.

Either way, I feel like I'm hogging the thread at this point. OP, you still there?

Actually, some models do this too, but I suppose they also exercise as needed.

Yeah, we're derailing the thread too much. I will restrain until OP shows up and tells us what he thinks.
