Great idea, good luck, anon.

First day was hard and long. I work at a textile plant and I spent the entire day cutting fabric with a laser machine thing. A lot of depressing thoughts found its way to me again, so it was hard to move around in a workplace that needs you to move around frequently, but I managed to pull it off when I thought of the instant noodles I could get when I get my paycheck. Although my boss is a really scary man. I don't want to get shouted at by him. My self esteem is already really bad. However so far I'm going good. This was the update of my first day, I will be paid every week so from now on I will update you guys every Saturday. Do I regret getting this job? No, I don't think so right now. This might be a clean slate for me Best of luck to you all, and see you on Saturday

best of luck to you. we don't have textiles near where I live but it sounds more reasonable than working something like an amazon warehouse.

Just home from work!
I got my first paycheck in forever! I'm so very proud of myself. It's been only a week and I think I'm confident now(?) Obviously I'm not out of the shithole that is my life right now, but I sure am out of how my life was a week ago. I wanted to quit on spot a lot of times, but I pulled through!! And with a bright face for the first time in months, I walked in my local supermarket and bought myself vegetable instant noodles. Enough to last me a week til I get paid again. I'm very proud of myself for getting this job, I'm even more proud of myself for not quitting on the first week. Am I going to make it Ubuu?

Hi all. Very sorry I missed a day to update
I got paid again, and I was feeling really good about myself while I was going home, so I thought I could celebrate by ordering a small pizza from Dominos. (which was awesome) I don't have work on Sunday, so I just spent the day online, but I'm even more motivated to work more Changing the optimistic tone of this post, bad stuff also happened this week. I had a panic attack while at work, so I was allowed to take a breather outside for a while. But I also had another panic attack outside. I'm still hoping my boss doesn't think I faked it to slack off, but I also think he's understanding to some extent. Here's to another week. Feeling good without suicidal thoughts for once in a long time.

i'm glad it helped you keep going. It really warms my heart.
I like to think that bosses, nowadays, (especially of this generation) are getting really good at understanding stuff like panic attacks and the likes. You know, "being human beans".
If you feel like it, you can try talking about it to your boss. He's just another coworker if you disregard the role hierarchy.
I'm rooting for you, anon =w=

Back from work again, this week was boring but I got paid! :D
I can't believe it's nearly been a month since I started working. I did have it in me after all…
Speaking of, I didn't have another panic attack this week. Some male coworkers told me if I got anxious again I could just go outside for a while and they would try to do without me (they're using irons to "stick" these paper-y things to fabric. I don't know the name) basically I cut those paper-y things for them when my boss tells me to.
I had some depressive thoughts again, but they weren't as frequent as they were on my first 2 weeks, so I pulled through easier. I'm still sort of scared I will slip up.
Anyway I actually do have some money now! I guess it wouldn't be considered much by other people but for me it's a lot. I bought myself a can of beer with it. Tastes so much better when you buy it with money you worked for :-)
>>267 >>277 >>263 >>288
You people all prevented me from quitting thank you all so much!!!!!
(and yes the pizza was good)
Here's to another week!

pour one out for TextilesAnon, boys. looking forward to hearing from you in a week. keep at it!

That's some great news, anon. Sounds like you have some great co-workers!
Inspiring me to get up and try my hands at working. Thanks for keeping us up to date. Makes me happy to come here and see what you're up to.

I keep forgetting to update sorry!!!
I got paid again and now I have enough money to buy a nendoroid I wanted and still have leftover money for essential things :) I feel really ecstatic
This week went about the same, but now they put me in charge of a pressing machine of some sort, basically I put a piece of fabric on a pedestal(i think?) then I put beads on it, then the machine squeezes(i had brain fog right now as i wrote this so idk if this is the right word) the beads into the fabric with heat and pressure, It's very dangerous though but added like 2 dollars more to my pay haha so It's all good
Anyway It's tuesday now but I got a bit of a cold so I was allowed to take the day off since I never took one off before obviously I won't let this pull me back into NEETdom. I will fight my will for another day
Again sorry for the very late update. Hope you all are doing well and see you next saturday
I'm really glad the thread is motivating you, makes me very glad and happy I still go to work despite my anxieties. These anxieties will pass completely too hopefully

Nice to hear they pay you well.
>These anxieties will pass completely too hopefully
I hope so! That's great that you can push thru like that

Good job moving up OP. Please keep us updated on your labor adventures!
(Please take care of yourself at work so you don't get injured with the dangerous machines. All it takes is one mistake to end up in a gore compilation)

Late update as always, been feeling down really bad
I came close to quitting a lot of times this week, I guess I burnt out finally. No I didn't actually quit, I still go everyday
But it's a scary thought because I don't want to be NEET again, but again it's really hard to keep up now. Not to mention the new machine they put me on gets really hot so when I'm off work my shirt is almost always wet, I don't have a lot of shirts so I may have to go to a neighborhood market (not sure what theyre called in english, theyre basically rows of stalls people set up to sell their stuff) Hope I find some really cheap shirts.
Anyway I've been thinking maybe I should take a day off, but I don't want to push too hard since I already took 2 days off from work. I also learned there's a depressed(?) coworker near me, so at least he makes the days more bearable. He's relateable to talk to. (Yes I can hold short talks now.)
Yeah I had the gore complitation thing in my mind when I started to work with the machine, but I'm more used to it now, nearly lost the tip of my middle finger though. That really scared me
I don't know why I burnt out so suddenly, but I won't be NEET again, and I promise you Ubuu I will make another update. Sayonara!

That's good news that you can do small talks now. Like you said, it helps to keep going thru the day.
Take it easy at work, anon. Take your time on the machines and keep on trucking. You've come this far, no point in quitting now

how are you man ?

I'm sorry to disappoint everyone but I had to quit… That's why I haven't been able to update, I did not know what to say.
But the saga of textile anon is not over yet!! I will take some time to collect myself, since this was really hard to do for me, but even more rewarding. I'm going to do what I want for about a week, collect my thoughts and I'll look for another textile plant. (my country lives off of clothing industries so I'm good) Honestly it's kind of hard to want to work, especially now I have some money but I will look for a job anyway.
Also the word I was trying to remember at
was flea market, just to clear any confusion
Anyway I guess I'll be playing Stardew Valley for a few days…. til then.. I hope I will update this thread again.

I'm not disappointed. Don't stop trying! That's great that you held onto that job for so long. I don't imagine it's easy working in a textile factory.
Keep a record of how long you've held your last job and try to beat it on the next one. That should give you motivation onto the next round.
Thank you for updating us regardless of the outcome. Glad to see you post around every week

You have gained working experience, which is worth a lot.
Now you can do even better on your next job, because you have already learned stuff and can show experience on your cv when you apply for a new job. Overall you are in a better position than before, anon, you have accomplished something valuable!

Hey guys, I found another very small textile place. There's a hiring sign on the window so I'll try going there on Monday. Just wanted to tell you all.
