Hi /ot/. I made a website inspired by ACFX uploader and Futaba's upload board since it didn't seem to have an english equivalent. I made it by translating a Japanese script into English.

>pick up hobby to try and bring some color into life

>drop it
>cycle repeats
anyone else? it's like i just am not allowed to have fun
hobby in question was "roleplay" by the way. though i say i've given up, i know that i'll probably be back in like, a week (or spend this week trying and failing to enjoy myself before i finally go 'fuck it' like i did for art).

>realize that i'm no good at it
No one is good at anything at the start. Just keep at it. Helps to do it together with a friend/relative.


Is that how you get a hobby?
I hear it so often; Get a hobby anon, it will help you relax, it will give you some joy, maybe even fulfill you.
Still I have no idea how that should work.
Like just pick something random and try it out? Then regarding if I liked it or not I continue doing it?

>Like just pick something random and try it out?
Rather than picking stuff to do randomly, it's best to gauge whether you will enjoy doing something or not, then choosing those you find enjoyable or entertaining. For example, I'd love to spend more time drawing since I consider it's a nice hobby, but for me it is extremely frustrating because it takes a good amount of time to get good, which I currently don't have. Maybe if I had a tablet I'd find it easier though, but using mouse is very tiring and I don't like traditional art as you can't delete stuff as neatlty as in digital. Hence, it's not a hobby I enjoy, so I don't do it.

On the other hand, I'm starting to dabble in C++ and emulation, and I find it's more rewarding as you can see progress more easily than, for example, drawing.

>Then regarding if I liked it or not I continue doing it?

Ideally, you should be able to judge whether you want to do something, or if you will like something, before you try it. However, misjudging is very common; look at all those people who tried to do yume nikki fangames and gave up midways when they realized it wasn't as "easy" or "entertaining" as they originally thought.

So, to answer your question: Yes, you can stop and ask yourself if you like what you're doing or not. Hobbies are supposed to be enjoyable, even when they aren't easy. Some like them for the challenge (achieving something, feeling accomplished), while others simply enjoy the process (think of those otaku who garage figures simply because they enjoy doing it, regardless of the quality of the final product). Feeling frustrated because you don't feel you're skilled enough shouldn't be a deterrent for trying a hobby if ultimately doing it makes you happy, but you definitely shouldn't push on doing something that makes you unhappy.


Thank you for that response anon.
Guess I simply have to beat my depression first because right now I don't want to do anything at all since right now I enjoy nothing.

While i have a healthy respect for religion's place in the world as a political instrument that's useful for controlling the unwashed masses, i think that on an individual's level it's just a mental tool for those who have a self-perceived lack of strength to carry themselves forward on their own, regardless of whether gods exists or not. Therefore i choose to believe in my own aptitudes instead of waiting for someone who may or may not exist to help me out. My spirit is too fat and juicy to fit in any one religion, my mind is too logical to fallow any dogmas. Get on my level, pleb.

>i think that on an individual's level it's just a mental tool for those who have a self-perceived lack of strength to carry themselves forward on their own
Spoken like a true stinky bitch, like a real shit sniffing hippopotamus. Have you ever had a really deep spiritual experience in your life? Look at the shaolin warriors who spend hours every day perfecting their art or meditating with systems that buddhists have been developing for centuries to explore the nature of experience, or look at abrahamic monks who make art and music together to deepen their connection to God and tell me these people aren't way, way more fulfilled than you. Religion is more than burgers telling Jesus to guide their bullet to the tasty dog.

>my mind is too logical to fallow any dogmas

No it's not, because if it was then you'd have already had to have spent long months and years recognising and expunging the dogmas of experience, and if you did that and shared your findings you would end up a religious leader yourself. Religions aren't "true", they are reflections in a pond filled with water donated by hermits and ascetics under a weird sky.


File: 1594576211709.jpg (76.27 KB, 447x599, lightyearsaway.jpg)

What your stubborn, people oriented, emotional mind fails to comprehend is that religion is not necessary for having spiritual experiences, striving for mastery or collective efforts at perfecting some art. You clutch at religion because freedom makes you feel dizzy, lonely and alone, because you lack bravery to sail the forbidden seas. You're terrified of going insane without this crutch, but religion itself is insanity.
You think you see truth in what some "religious authority" says, but as a result you get further away from it, everyone's shit smells, there are no religious authorities and if there was a god he would probably feel sorry for you for wasting your freedom in your one life. Only an immoral, arrogant, sick individual would wish to become a "religious leader", to rob another being of the freedom of discovering what this mess we're in is all about for themselves. Religions are foolish and foolishness is the root of evil.
I'm not sure what you mean by "dogmas of experience", but you must be having those a lot.

Realistically, where do you see the world ten years from now? What events will define the 2020's? Will the cultural shift be as intense as 2009 to 2019? From another perspective, where do you see yourself 10 years from now? Do you feel that your lifestyle or standard of living may change?

I know politics make for shitty conversation and all, but just look at that Bronx chick's, "green new deal". It's hilarious.


AI isn't a meme like the cloud is. It doesn't take a artificial general intelligence to automate away a lot of jobs. Better neural nets can likely do that with more refinement.

My point is that you don't know me and you haven't changed my mind about having a child. Your assumptions are wrong.


File: 1539715926166.jpg (69.32 KB, 850x500, __original_drawn_by_oota_y….jpg)

>you don't know me
lol, such a cliche line
>Your assumptions are wrong.
What assumptions? You said you expected your kid to make sure you weren't lonely when you're old, right? How should somebody interpret that? I wasn't even trying to convince you not to have kids. I'm just saying that they don't owe you whatever you expect them to do for you after they become independent, and you should be mindful of that.


So I just found out about this thread, and if your reason for having a child is just not wanting to be lonely at your old age, I think it is selfish just like anon says, a baby is a living thing.


No I just want someone to call so they can tell me about their day in the evening. Someone who will go for a coffee with me on a Sunday. You assumed I wanted a child to be my full-time carer and cash cow which is a huge and wild assumption and doesn't apply to me at all. Do you understand now?
>the expectation that they'll be your friend/nurse/piggy bank as an adult

Honestly it just motivates me more. My new goal is to be a better parent than yours were if you get so defensive at someone even mentioning that they want to have a child, that's scary. Idk what happened to you but not all parents are narcissistic, overbearing monsters. Mine weren't and maybe that's why I have a more positive view of raising kids.

I think it's kind of funny. I haven't seen any sites do that sort of thing before, so it seems refreshing and original to me. 8ch is the IB that made out the worst on April 1st this year…

Anyway, thank you for being lighthearted, meidos. Even though I was worried something was wrong, it makes me glad to see uboachan again. As the saying goes, "We don't know what we have until it's gone."


Sorry for the trouble. It was pretty last-minute because I totally did forget until the day of. I was going to make a news post that I had sold Uboachan to Martin Shkreli but I didn't have a lot of time to type one up.

Thanks to deciding to start ROM hacking GBA Fire Emblem games I've learned how to use assembly and it's helped me optimize my own personal programs. It's also given me something to talk about with my Comp Sci professors. I'm really surprised more people don't try and use it since it helps for both optimizing methods that you have to run over and over as well as just getting a better understanding of what exactly you're doing in higher level languages.
I recommend you look into assembly for your main loop, because you really don't want extraneous clock time for each cycle of it.

The one time video games have actually helped me IRL.

yeah, I'd like to know the icon theme too
