Do you ever feel like your life has become too repetitive?

Yes and no
There are times where I'm working 40 hours a week and just thinking "fuck my life I'm tired of this shit" but then I'll go on a break to be a NEET for a while to balance it out


Sometimes I feel like I'm just a scripted NPC. I really need to start leaving my comfort zone sometimes.

Just build yourself up slowly. Don't go too hard and lose your willpower, but do a little bit more every day or week. Take it at a gentle pace, but try to learn something new every day. The internet has resources for a lot of things.

Also keep temptations away while you do those things so you don't get distracted and end up not doing them. The hardest part is just getting yourself to get up and start, but once you do that you'll get going. You can do it, anon.

Thanks I'll try! I've been trying to make minimal changes like getting up and going to bed at a set time and things like that. I've been doing okay so far, I'm not where I'd like to be, but I understand I gotta work for it. Hopefully I'll get there.



Yeah, and it's good to keep that in mind, but that also tends to be a lot of why people feel unfulfilled. Anons talk about how boring and needlessly stressful a normal life of school and work is, and certainly it usually is, but in my mind a large degree of why it is has always seemed not just because it's demanding and forces you to interact with idiots and do mundane things, but because it's so repetitive and enforces its repetitiveness.
NEET life has kind of the same thing going on, but with a level of freedom and ability to cloister yourself from judgment and having to deal with people that normal life doesn't have, within certain limits.

Good luck.

It's weird. By all accounts my life is finally in an upswing. I'm on course to finish my associate's degree next may, and to return to the university I dropped out to finish a bachelor's by 2016.

I also escaped from a nightmarish overnight schedule stocking shelves - by, strangely enough, making enough monthly writing fetish fiction. Still - a more fulfilling job than stocking shelves.

I've even battled my social anxiety (that caused me to initially drop out in the first place) to the point where I can actually bring myself to somewhat social events without needing a friend for comfort. I guess that's the best thing I can thank wal mart for.

Anyway… despite all this, I feel more disconnected than ever before.

I never really noticed before, but now that I'm 23, I realize that… well, nobody actually cares. Everyone is so wrapped up in their own existences that I'm not even a blip on their personal radars unless I force myself into their lives - and that's the thing, I don't want to.

My best friend and I had a falling out early this year, and despite some efforts on my part, he didn't want to take any time at all to repair what we had. After enough time apart, I realized I didn't even truly know him. He never opened up.

Another friend and I started hanging out all the time. She would even go so far as to get out of work early just to grab coffee with me. Then suddenly, as soon as she got a somewhat higher tier job (teacher) she can't find the time of day to hang out more than twice over the span of literal 7 months - despite constantly filling her schedule with other activities with other people.

Berserker desu indeed


>nobody actually cares. Everyone is so wrapped up in their own existences that I'm not even a blip on their personal radars unless I force myself into their lives - and that's the thing, I don't want to.

This is a realization I've come to recently, and it's put me in a strikingly similar state to the one you describe yourself to be in.

Just thought I'd let you know.


>I also escaped from a nightmarish overnight schedule stocking shelves - by, strangely enough, making enough monthly writing fetish fiction.
How and where did you pulled this off? I hate mycurrent job and I wouldn't mind to make money writing kinky stuff.



I don't think you're a narcissist OP, at least from what you posted I don't get that vibe. You seem alright, a little cynical and paranoid but HAHAHAAHA aren't we all? No need to apologize, a lot of people come on here to emotionally vomit there problems all over the place. We only get to read a small portion of each others' lives so I don't think what you post really reflects poorly on you or anything.


Hi those of you in this thread. Sorry for not returning sooner, I honestly thought this little pity party of mine died.

It's kind of embarrassing to read in hindsight (3 months later and all that).

Yeah, it's a really strange realization. Other people here are saying it's super obvious, but it wasn't for me. It's also possible it hasn't fully sunk it for them.

It's kind of painful to look at people you presumed cared about you, and to realize you only matter when you force yourself onto their radars.

I've been reading stories in this niche ever since I was 14 I believe.

A couple years ago I ran out of material to read and was left somewhat dissatisfied. I decided to create something for myself and shared it. From there, I offered cheap commissions and people quickly started queuing up. After that, I started charging more per commission, and my fame slowly grew. Eventually Patreon came out and after joining up on there, it was fairly easy (with the fanbase I developed) to earn enough to earn more than I would be stocking shelves.

What are some things that you guys do in order to occupy yourself, whilst making your day seem more structured/purposeful? Other than the standard of video games/anime, what other hobbies do you have?

I enjoy going for walks (especially when it snows) or staring out the windows if it's raining. I've also been trying my hand at art (mainly just doodles for now), poetry and writing, and the guitar (along with the piano).

I know there's an older thread, but I didn't want to necro, so what's new?

If that happens, it means that its time to take a break from doing it. I must admit that the level of OCD of doing this kind of work is really intense. It is something that you keeps listening to your sample repetitively and edit it until it sounds right. This repetition is the cause of what we all know, a fatigue.


try to forget about that loop. Do something else, start making new track and go back to it after a week or two.


I don't know about others, but for me it's the OCD. I also edit videos, so if something sounds/looks wrong it disturbs me, and I will re-listen/re-watch the same couple of seconds indefinitely until I'm satisfied, otherwise it will itch at the back of my mind to fix it. I guess that doesn't fully answer your question though, I don't really get a headache/annoyed by this, I just feel like I -need- to do it, and won't look away untill I do.

Life is constant misery and I hate myself but am not able to commit sudoku because I'm a coward. I would rather be miserable doing nothing than be miserable having a job with regular 12 hour shifts and overtime. How do I stop doing all that and start being a NEET?

not OP, but as an American I've heard that this is a real way to get on disability. Is there any truth to it? If you commit yourself for a while either because you really are sick or because you're faking it to get welfare (harder), do you get benefits from it?


>literally copying a bergman film


Granted, a courageous method for a coward purpose.


I've found that I'm just as full of self-hate when I have work as when I don't. If I'm in a job that pays enough for me to get by, I have no time and cannot accomplish any goals (as well as generally slowly wanting to murder everyone at the place of employment). If I'm in a job that gives time, it certainly doesn't pay enough for me to accomplish goals and financial woes come crushing down on me. What's the solution? Is there one?


Which one?

Hey, have you guys checked out wizardchan? They seem to share much of the same problems we do. Since there aren't many (english) NEET/hiki sites I know of, I thought it would be nice to share. Do you know any other NEET/hiki communities yourself?

You mad, wannabe wizard?

It's ridiculous anyways, because

1.99% of the people there aren't even over 30 years old

2.Don't pursue anything wizard related stuff like studying science&technology at university or being a PhD in research.

All small wannabe faggets.

Hello fellow /n/erds, I'm in college right now and because of my program of study, I have to start attending classes on campus instead of taking them online. Taking online classes is going pretty well. Having to go to campus 3 times a week won't work, though. Not because I don't have the transportation, but because I'll just skip class due to both laziness and anxiety.

I've come to accept this about myself. Unfortunately, I can't just "quit" college until I find a solution; I have student loans to pay when I'm finished with my degree (not that much so far, only ~2k) and you only have a six month grace period until you need to repay. Having said that, I'm at a loss right now. Does anybody have any ideas? I'm from the United States if that helps.

Honestly I just want to go NEET again (I was a NEET for 5 years before going back to school) until I figure something out but I have no way of paying back what I owe to the government. Aghgf ;_;

just go, you can chill in the back of the class and maybe even have a laptop open. I met someone who was pretty much like you and afterward they said they were glad to have been in that class.


Oh and of course, with the non-college options, I really don't know. I dont even know what i want to do with myself. I too just want to live a quiet life so I'm gaining skillsets for self-driven jobs.

Do that I guess and minimize the college until it actually has helped you enough to be able to live and not be in too much debt i guess


I feel you, anon. What I didn't mention is that the previous semester, I took all on-campus classes and ended up failing them all because I stopped going. I wasn't able to handle them. Online classes worked a lot better for me the next semester. Actually, I took one on-campus class that was once a week and close to my house. I didn't go to 3/4ths of the classes, but I still got an A because the lady was a very nice and lenient person. I'm very grateful for her existence. Perhaps she isn't the greatest college professor, though.

Not very far at all. I have a lot more to go just so I can transfer to a University. I believe I'll have around 4 semesters to go at this pace.

Please elaborate, anon. Are apprenticeships still a thing? I'm very curious.

Your post makes me comfy, anon. I wish it were that simple. In essence, it really is, but I don't think that would work well for me. Really though, that kind of simple reasoning gives me hope. I'm sounding lackluster right now because I'm quite tired but thank you!

I'm still unsure of what I want to do. My schedule for next semester is tentative, but I'll have to take at least one class on-campus twice a week (chemistry) at the very minimum. I'm stressed out about it. It's not the end of the world, but I'd rather just stay home. Sometimes I just want to go for a more technical degree like Web Development (which I can do online fully), but then I wonder why I would pay to learn something I could do for free. I'm very conflicted right now and a little frustrated (which varies from low to high throughout the day) about my, and everybody else's similar situation. As a bit of a warning to current NEETs: if you plan on going to college, make sure you're ready before you start because fucking up really sucks.

I'm assuming you're american here. Also, apprenticeships are mostly for manual jobs like electricians or mechanic.

How it works is pretty simple, find something you would like to do, find companies that are looking for apprentices, apply, and do the interview. It's like a minimum wage job where you learn skills and get more money as you learn them. Once you're able to, maybe join a union related to your field so you can get some guaranteed stuff. I really suggest looking more into it, make your own research, as college and universities are pretty much a debt contract for life.


I stopped showing up within the first week of freshman year. As a senior in electrical engineering with a ~3.5, my existence demonstrates the non-essential nature of lectures. Barring courses with mandatory attendance, laboratories, or an unconventional syllabus there is simply no compelling reason to be at the university.

It absolutely can be done, you just need to be proficient at procuring information and independent study. Unless you're unusually receptive to a person-centric learning environment the only function of lectures is to distribute information about examination structure. Since the majority of courses are conducted right out of a textbook, this information will always be available elsewhere. The biggest challenge are deviations from the syllabus - it's quite useful if you can maintain a few contacts to inform of any such irregularities. Also, pillage the fuck out of previous year course websites for materials - not only will having this information straight up raise your gpa by a point but you can use it to "pay", or at least convince the previously mentioned contacts to actually be fucking useful.

I woke up today and realized half way through the day that it was Christmas. Didn't want to start a new thread so merry Christmas/happy holidays everyone. It's kind of sad that all of the magic has gone away, especially so because I'm doing what I do everyday, away in my den, while everyone else is celebrating.


Happy holidays, anon. I'm just the same as you. My biggest wish right now is for another snowfall, at least before the start of the 2015. Snow is so nice and comforting. It takes me away from any pain associated with this time of year.


I absolutely love snowfall. It was snowing really hard in Canada before the season really started, but now that it has, there has been little snow. Walking home while it's snowing puts the biggest grin on my face for whatever reason.
