You're Tammy Konstantin, an 18yo NEET of 2 years who's faced with a problem; find a job or a school to attend within a month, or get thrown out of the house. That's the ultimatum your parents have given you. So far you've been doing great with the help of /tg/, breaking your anxieties and making a job application. But let's see how long that lasts....Older quests can be found here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=NEET%20QuestSorry for being away for some days. Had real life to take care of.Without further ado, let's get rolling.
You're feeling unmistakably unmotivated. Slouched in front of your computer, you're clicking away with your gaming mouse to level your Elin Healer in TERA: Rising. With your window securely barred, the cold glow of your computer screens is the only source of light to reveal the state of you and your room. You're wearing a too large, outwashed t-shirt and boxers, with your room in a growing state of despair with clothes and plates strewn across the floor, you sit with a dead gaze in your eyes fully engaged in the virtual combat unfolding in front of you.It's been six days since you showed dad your printed out job application over dinner. He'd looked it over and given it an approving nod, and you'd been filled with joy. Another stone had been removed from your chest, and you'd retreated to your room and started playing some video games to reward yourself, finally feeling easy for the first time since the ultimatum had been put down upon you. And then you'd stepped back onto the slippery slope.With the fear of the ultimatum gone, you lost the spark of resolve that'd made you overcome your anxieties so easily. Instead of going to bed at a reasonable time that night, you ended up playing video games until 4AM. When you finally went to bed, you slept until 1PM, ruining the whole day with your unbalanced sleep cycle. You'd watched some anime and played some TERA, telling yourself that you'd go to bed at a reasonable time this night and then get up and do something the next day. Again, you'd gone to bed early in the morning, and then the cycle repeated itself. Kasper had for the first couple of days tried to talk to you, knocking on your door and trying to open it. But you'd not answered him, and your door have been locked tight. You really didn't want to explain anything to him, and he would most certainly bombard your with questions if you decided to answer him or open the door. So you'd ignored him, and after three days he'd stopped knocking.cont.
>>28397953You yawn, stretch yourself, and rub your eyes. You teleport back to a town in TERA and log out, ensuring that you get rested experience for easier questing tomorrow. At the desktop, you notice that the time is 02:11AM. Not really late enough to go to bed yet. Despite your mind being tired due to the endless amount of video games you've subjected it to during the last week, your body is all jittery and aching from the heavy intake of sugar, too much sleep, no relaxing showers, and no real amount of exercise. You reach for the nearest half-full bottle of soda and take a sip, feeling the acidy liquid full of sugar and caffeine clench your thirst and rejuvenate you a bit. A passive feeling of apathy have loathed around in your body for the last few days. Despite the time ticking away until you must have a job or undergo education, you can't help but feel uncaring. It's all been so easy, getting up and doing things. So why do anything until the end when you can spend your time now doing nothing and relaxing? No reason to strain yourself beyond what's absolutely necessary. Besides, your parents wouldn't dare throwing you out into the winter cold, even if you don't have a job at the end of the month, this you're sure of.Leaning back in your chair, you get the idea that perhaps you should do something else than video games.>A. Play vidya>B. Watch anime>C. Browse imageboards>D. Sleep earlier than usual (roll 1d20 for initiative, must be over 10, first roll counts)>E. Take a shower (roll 1d20 for initiative, must be over 15, first roll counts)>F. Clean up the new mess in your room (must roll 1d20, nat 20, first roll counts)>G. Other
Rolled 16D. Sleep earlier than usual (roll 1d20 for initiative, must be over 10, first roll counts)Sleep is good sometimes.
>>28397984>Sleep is good sometimes.sleep is good ALWAYS. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a filthy liar.
>>28398096Call me a filthy liar, then, I dislike falling asleep while I'm driving my motor vehicle. It usually ends with someone behind me horning when I'm stopped at a red light that's turned green.
>>28397964Clean.Maybe get some counseling.Maybe at least email our resume.Look into GED or night school?
>>28397953>>28397964Ahh, backsliding. So familiar.It's far too easy to get caught in sleeping too much, but one day's fine. After a good night's rest, though, we can put off actually doing work towards doing work by making backup plans. We should tell some people online about this when we wake up, and then see what they think is good for alternatives/reinforcements as to how to get up and doing things, though.
>>28398399It's been six days, mate.
>>28398476[x] take drastic actionKill your internet connection.
>>28397964>Sleep earlier than usualthe bed is calling.
>>28397984Your body is cold from sitting still for so long. As you rub your arms to try and get some heat back in them, you shudder and feel a headache coming up. Letting out another yawn, you decide it's time for bed, but find it relatively difficult to move yourself from your chair to your bed despite there being approximately 3 feet between them. Slumping down on the bed and wrapping the messy cowers around you without even taking your clothes off, you stir and turn in your bed for half an hour, drifting in and out of sleep as your body process the sugar residue and finally crash. Breathing heavily, you soon find yourself overcome by a deep, dreamless slumber.—You wake up as per usual, with a massive headache from dehydration. Cringing and complaining, you take a good 10 minutes to even sit up in bed. Grabbing a hold of the back of your chair, you manage to move your position from the bed to in front of your computer. Downing the rest of the soda from yesterday and eating some crisps out of an opened bag also from yesterday, you check the clock on your computer. It says that the time is 11:43AM. It's Saturday. It's been a week since you last were outside, and you recall the time spent with Kasper walking to the park. A heavy feeling of sadness spreads through your body like a poison making its way through your veins, and you find yourself having to nudge your chest to get it to go away. Drifting back to emotional apathy, you open up TERA and start off from where you left, now with plenty of rested experience to have a go at.>A. Switch to watching anime>B. Complain on /r9k/ about something>C. Play a homoerotic VN instead>D. Go take a shower for the first time in a week (roll 1d20 for initiative, must be over 15, first roll counts)>E. Go make a proper breakfast and try to avoid Kasper in the process (roll 1d20 for initiative, must be over 15, first roll counts)>F. Clean your room (roll 1d20. Must be nat 20, first roll counts)>G.

FUCKING WHATJesus, we shouldn't have picked vidya option then or something? God damnOr is it just OP upscaling a difficulty?

>>28398630>>28398656Forgot my trip.
>>28398630>B. Complain on /r9k/ about somethingFirst step, make sure the issue is in our mind! Then we can start doing things about it.Or despair, but that's also appropriate.
Rolled 12>>28398630>>D. Go take a shower for the first time in a week (roll 1d20 for initiative, must be over 15, first roll counts)Duuuude.shower. Always. Even if you're just crashing back in your pit again, it's amazing how much better it feels after a shower

>>28398854No recapIf I get this right, last thread we had intention to consult father about our job application, and now we're here
>>28398854>>28397942>You're Tammy Konstantin, an 18yo NEET of 2 years who's faced with a problem; find a job or a school to attend within a month, or get thrown out of the house.

We've fucked up our relationship with our brother, with our parents... If we destroy these... THINGS... these trappings that contribute to our NEETery, then maybe we can find the courage and strength to move forward with our lives.>G: Go Fucking Berserk
Rolled 18>>28398630Let's try cleaning our room.
>>28398935So close, yet so far.
>>28398913Didn't the VN masturbation session win out?
Rolled 16>>28398630DShower feels warm and can help your hygiene.
>>28398798>>28398855You knees itch, so you rub them against each other to relieve it. In the process, you manage to tickle yourself quite well, and a primal lust awakens in you yet again. With a mental shrug, you tab out of TERA and open up you VN library. Choosing a certain juicy one where you have the save points at the exact right places, you maneuver you way to the certain massage scene that you enjoy so much. Guiding your left hand around the familiar spots, you quickly manage to satisfy yourself and leave a stain on your chair. You don't care about that, and tab back to your TERA game.An hour go by until you find yourself in need of a toilet. You stand up slowly, seeing as your body is stiff and not warm enough for fluid motion. Huddling your way to your door, making sure not to step on dirty dinnerware and clothes, you enter the hallway silently with the skill of a true NEETnja. Sneaking to the bathroom door, you can hear music coming from Kasper's room as always. Listening in, you think you can make it out to be Jemapur, but you're not sure. It doesn't matter, anyway. Just as you're about to open the door to the bathroom, you hear an audible and very girly laugh coming from your brother's room which makes you tense up for a second and prepare to dash back to your room in case they come out into the hallway. Breathing a sigh of relief after a good 20 seconds of waiting, you make your way inside and lock the door behind you.cont.
>>28399392The sight in the mirror that you lay your eyes on as you wash your hands makes no difference to you; filthy, unwashed locks of curly hair scrambled around a dirty, zit-ridden face with the usual huge bags under the eyes. Dead, uncaring eyes stare back at you, and the mouth locked in a perpetual frown, you shrug it off and go back to your room as silently as your left it right after taking a drink of water to try and cure your splitting headache. The clock is now nearing 1PM, and you just go back playing TERA. Level 40 soon. Perhaps lunch soon, too. Meh. Might as well wait until mom comes home and makes some dinner.>A.

>>28399621The rounds ejecting from that machine gun don't appear to be just casings. They're the whole round. I know Japan doesn't know anything about guns, but surely they must know that you shoot the bullet, and eject the casing? The thing that comes out of the gun has to come from somewhere.

>>28399413What happened to us? As we sit playing Tera, our mind wanders back to grade school. We were... well, we weren't happy, but we weren't filled with despair. As we kill mobs and turn in pointless quests, our mind wanders back to what actually drove us to where we are now...G: Fathom the unfathomable.
>>28399849It's a cry for help more than anything.The family wouldn't let us just lie on the bathroom floor vomiting up our innards....right?
>>28399884Yeah, but... Kasper's the only family member that's at home, and he's with his girlfriend... So when would we be found?

>>28399994Well, no, but there's got to be something going on subconsciously.NEETery is about surrender, but deep down she must really want to be normal.

>>28400188>And angels devoted to trying to help NEETs appreciate themselves and lifeThat's a story in itselfBut yeah, probably we'd just end up being banished from both heaven and hell back to earth with immortality to boot, so we wouldn't come back
I check back after all this time and everything is falling apart.Hold me tg ;_;
>>28400310This is just what happens to NEETs.Tammy was relying entirely off of a burst of motivation caused by fear of homelessness. Those fears got abated so now she's regressing. We need to find healthier motivation for her.
Rolled 17>>28400310Don't worry, we're not going to kill ourselves.But we need to get serious about getting our shit in order. Let's... unplug for a couple days.
>>28400328Time to find her a nice boy
>>28400337Oh god, why would you wish Tammy on anyone?
>>28399621>>28399833You tab out of TERA. You feel tired, not only physically from not doing jack, but also of the MMO you've been playing almost non-stop the last couple of days. Checking your torrents, you see that the latest episode of the Trigger anime Kill la Kill have finished downloading. Opening up Media Player Classic, you drag the episode file from your downloaded torrents folder to the player window, and lean back in you chair as the intro theme is blasted out through your loudspeakers. It's a typical cliché plot about how the bond of a family is more worth than material wealth. You wouldn't know, seeing as you haven't had experience with both enough to form a coherent opinion on the subject. You shrug it off, since the amount of action was still as good as you expected. Silly Mako. Somehow the amount of 'genki' in the show have energized you a bit.Still, you find yourself trying to recall the last time you had a normal family dinner. It must've been over two years ago by now. Probably the night before the event at school. You memories have turned to a mushy blur from all the days locked away in a dark room. You try to recall other events in your life; a picnic in the forest, a baseball match with dad at the local stadium, a shopping trip with mom to a nearby mall, a museum visit with school, the smell of the school yard back in Kersington, but no matter how hard you try it all seems so unfamiliar. It feels fake, like the memories of another person, a happier person, implemented in your own memories of your childhood. But they're incompatible, two lifestyles so radically different that they couldn't be from the same person. At least you have no issues recalling the sad moment of your life, up until that fateful evening at the school grounds...cont.
>>28400337good luck if she's not showering for days at a time.
>>28400337I think the only boy she'd be comfortable with right now is Kasper. And while certain things sort of seem to hint at something like that I don't think everyone would want to go down that path.
>>28400363Just as a single tear runs down your cold, lifeless cheek, someone knocks on your door. You freeze in your thought tracks and listen. The knock comes again, this time with a voice:"Tammy? You in there?" a female, overly sweet voice rings out. You tense up, feeling the familiar ball of angst-laden lead form in your chest at the speed of a bullet train. "I know you're in there, silly, I could hear the music being stopped." She must be talking about the end theme to Kill la Kill. "Look, Kaspy told me that he can't get in contact with you any more. Are you all right? Did something happen?"You contemplate for a second what to answer. 'I'm fine, just leave me alone.'? 'Oh god, help me, I've fallen and I can't get up!'? 'Tell Kasper I'm fine, I just need to be alone.'? Before you find yourself saying anything, you feel your throat clench in on itself as you swallow a ball of imaginary bile. You can't form a single word in this state. Chris knocks on your door again."Hello?" she calls out. You tense at the sound of her voice, so sugary and girly.>A. Ignore her until she goes away>B. Quickly ask /r9k/ what to do>C. Throw a shoe at the door to scare her away (roll 1d20 to see how well it goes, first roll counts)>D.

Rolled 13>>28400379E, let's see where this goes
>>28400431Who throws a shoe?Honestly?You fight like a woman.
>>28400431In your state of panic, a sinister thought enters your mind. A wide, evil grin spreads across your face as you reach for the pair of winter boots left turned over near your bed. As your grab onto one, you raise yourself from your chair and start to swing your arm to gain momentum. When you feel the exact amount of speed built up in your swing, you lean in your whole body as if pitching a baseball and accelerate the boot towards the door. With an incredible BANG, the sole of the boot flat-out collides with the wood to create an amazingly loud noise. You hear a short scream from the other side of the door, and the sound of something (or someone) hitting the floor. The muffled sound of cursing coming from the other side tells you that Chris had been knocked right off her pretty little feet from the shock.cont.
>>28400813A door can be heard slamming up, and heavy footsteps over the hallway floor ring out as they approach your room. The sound of you brother's voice emanates from the outside and makes you tense up yet again. Perhaps you just screwed up more than you should've."Chris, are you ok? What happened?" he asks."Yeah, I'm fine. She threw something at the door when I asked if she we're ok!""What!? Why would she do that!?""I don't know, I didn't even insult her or anything. Kaspy, your sister is incredibly rude! Do something!""Alright, alright, go wait in my room. I'll see what I can do."A pitterpatter of tiny steps can be heard rushing away from your room, and the sound of a door closing ends the pitterpattering. There's a silence that feels like an eternity before your brother's voice rings out from the other side of the door, heavily twisted from its original, cheery sound by the amount of sadness in it:"Tam. What's going on?"You say nothing. You do nothing. The sound of your brother's voice, like a father pleading to his dying son on his deathbed to not go away, lights your soul on fire and then freezes it over all at the same time. You don't know what to do, or what to respond. If you even should respond. You honestly don't want to see your brother after just cutting contact like that again. Before you can make a decision, he asks again from the other side of your sanctuary gate:"Tam. Answer me. What happened?">A. Ignore him until he goes away>B. Quickly ask /r9k/ what to do>C.

>>28400896>>28400993You literally don't know what to do. On one hand, your brother could be the ticket out of this grave you've dug for yourself yet again. But he could also be so angry at you that the second you open the door, he'll rush in and beat you up. You shudder at the thought of an angry Kasper beat you, and try to scooge a bit further into you chair. An idea hits you; the internet must know what to do! You quickly type out a thread and post it on /r9k/, just as another knock rings out.Kasper, standing on the other side of the door and still not receiving an answer, sighs heavily and lets his body lean against your door."Tam, why are you doing this? It all went so well. Dad was so proud at your job application. I know he didn't say so, but it was obvious to me and mom. And mom... she was so happy for you. Now she's back to crying again."He lets his body slide down to the floor, seating himself back to your door and hanging his head low in between his bent knees."Look, I can't help you if you refuse to acknowledge my existence. Just open the door. You don't even have to say anything. I'll help you get better. I promised mom that."Breathing another sad, heavy sigh, Kasper starts sobbing silently, tears dripping from the edge of his chiseled chin. You, seeing as you're on the other side of the door awaiting answers from /r9k/, of course doesn't know this.As Kasper continues crying outside, answers start to trickle in on the thread you made.>A. Take /r9k/'s advice>B. Don't take /r9k/'s advice>C. Other

>>28401268Speak, Tammy. Talk to him.
>>28401268Come on, Tammy. You know better to not take /r9k/'s advice. Let's just talk to him, okay? We can get better again, but we need him to help us.
HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE, /r9k/ lets us lift the DC? Fuck the fuck yeah

>>28401401Their advice -is- talking to him
>>28401722The advice ranges from killing herself to jumping out the window to throw another boot.
>>28401302>>28401316>>28401320>>28401340>>28401360>>28401601It appears that Kasper isn't leaving you alone after all, seeing as you haven't heard him walking away. You stealthily make your way out of your chair and move on four limbs over to the door, avoiding any pile that's between you and your door as gracefully as a human can when walking on all fours. You put your ear against your door and listen carefully. After adjusting yourself to listen in, you hear something that breaks your heart apart; the sound of Kasper's sobs. You lean against your door, the force holding your body together draining from you. As you slouch against the floor, you nudge your chest trying to force away the sadness, but to no avail. Not long after, you're both leaning back-to-back against your door, both crying because of your misery.cont.
>>28401862A flash from your computer screen snaps you out of your sadness. The thread on /r9k/ had auto-updated. As you crawl over to the computer and place yourself back in your chair, you see the voice of the internet telling you one thing: go talk to your brother. The familiar tremble when faced with social interaction returns as the idea of actually opening the door manifests into a kind of weak resolve. Swallowing another ball of imaginary bile, you rub your throat and chest to loosen up the mental locks on both as you make your way, wobblingly, over to your door. You raise a shaky hand to put your fingers on the bolt lock, but reluctantly pull it back. You're afraid. You can't do this. Better to just let him cry or whatever, and ignore him. But you can't just leave your brother out there after all he's done to you! Of course you can, you don't owe him anything. Of course, you owe him everything, and even if you don't you should answer because he's family! Family? Bah! We don't need them. Look at us, we've done so well the last two years! You call this well!? It's pityful! Only embracing your family can save you from this hell!>roll 1d20. Must be over 20. Highest of first 3 rolls. +2 Genki Bonus. +5 Internet Help Bonus

>>28402115So did I. Goddamn.
Too many fucking feels for me. Barely making progress in my own battle on this. God damnit, OP, your accurate difficulty. Your descriptions of the thought processes, and even the grasp of the others in this thread. Spot on stuff. Even the cold-as-Pluto dice in the thread, it's accurate.
>>28402165Shirty autocorrect system.Wardrobifier?
>>28402295Not a NEET, but used to be socially awkward.Let me offer you some advice that helped me out, man: Pretend you're roleplaying. Your character is a suave go-getter, and your life is the scenario you're in. If you have difficulty handling your shit, just think "What would Awesome McCoolguy do?"Then, do that. Trust me, removing yourself from the equation a bit helps you shut down the anxiety and self-loathing a bit.
>>28402298Nope iPhone to lazy to turn it off and sometimes does help with miss types as long as its not cursing
>>28402328Awesome McCoolguy is gonna be my next character.
>>28402328Not the guy you responded to, but that's basically how I live. Only my friends and closest family know how I think, how awkward I really am.When I got into youth politics, and later on real politic, I had problems building relations, talking in public, and so on.I just started acting. I'd act like a stereotypical "alpha" male, pretend that I was charismatic and so on. It worked really well. I think it's what makes a person charismatic, confidence and self-awareness. They're charismatic because they know they're charismatic.
Whoops, got distracted by real life for a second there.Guys, I'm gonna have to stop for tonight. Real life calls. I'll continue tomorrow afternoon.
>>28402509DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUN! Cliffhanger!
>>28402328Thank you for the advice, but you couldn't have understood my situation. I've been out of college 2 years, have a pretty steady, if minimum-wage and in my hometown, the worst place to be after picking up roots. It's just that nothing, no further education or career choice, seems like a good idea and any mistake I make could very easily send me back into weirdness. It's almost worse for me because my family will never kick me out.>>28402485Yeah, I'm really good at acting social too. Social isn't the problem. Ambitiousness is the problem. Drive, motivation, not caring about the risks and just pursuing things.>>28402509Whew. Honestly, thank you. I'm not sure I would have made it without crying.
>>28402509GAHHH IT'S SnK ALL OVER AGAIN
>>28402509Thanks for another cool thread, man.Now I can go to bed at a sensible time.
>>28402509You're totes a NEET yourself, running of to vidya gaems.Yea. I'm onto you, "NEET Master".
>>28402012Welcome to /tg/, occasionally called "dice hell" and infrequently referred to as "The Prison of Die".
>>28402560That's kind of arrogant. I'm out of college for two years now, probably at least a decade older than you, living with my grandma, and jobless after getting fired from my last job after less than a month, so I think it's safe to say I know exactly the kind of situation you're in.And "You can't understand my pain" is exactly the kind of thing I'd never say since I started doing what I suggested you do: It's a crutch that allows you to keep going as you are because you're too deep to be understood and nobody can help you. That's bullshit.
>>28402572I'm pretty much the anti-NEET: I work part time, study full time, practice sports, volunteer as a bartender, party in the weekends, and have plenty friends and acquaintances.But three years ago I was in Tammy's place. And I failed. Which is one of the reasons I'm doing this.
>>28402627Fucking trip continues to disappear.Anyway, I have a school project on for tomorrow that I'd completely forgotten.
>>28402620I was trying to indicate you couldn't have known my particular story, not the "YOU DON'T KNOW ME, MAN!" type of thing. Sorry, that is really now what I meant to say. I was saying that you couldn't have known the details, not that we are, fundamentally, dissimilar. We are very similar, can you please have a conversation based on this interpretation of what I said instead of the one you understood?
>>28402655Sure.So what's your situation, how is it related to NEETery, and how can I help?>>28402645Wikipedia is your friend.
>>28402645What's your major?
>>28402737None yet, but I plan on going into engineering. Working on university entrance classes at the moment.I'm only 20, and the minor setback of 3 years ago put me behind my peers.
>>28402769Nothing you can't overcome, OP. Awesome McCoolguy wouldn't give up, and neither should you!
>>28402680Just what I said, that, after graduating with a humanities degree in a field that I'm not interested in pursuing at a graduate level, have moved back to my rural hometown with my mother.And nothing seems like a wise career choice, or not possible. Although I wouldn't pursue my undergrad major, I've attempted to find similar fields to enter at a graduate level, that feels impossible. I'm not really looking for "help", just talking. Going back to school is really cool, that's neat to hear about. Sorry it hasn't worked out in your benefit so far.>>28402769>only 20Damn, well done! Especially with that list of accomplishments you posted earler, that's really awesome. Do you live in a city or the countryside?
>>28402804I live in the capital of my country. It's pretty neat. Also, thanks. But it's nothing, really. I've done much crazier shit.
>>28402804You have a degree. That puts you above people without one, whatever the field. Who cares what it's in, just find something that interests you and work at it for a bit to make money and such. Help out around the house (not implying you aren't, but just as a general word of advice) so you don't feel like a freeloader; it'll do wonders for your self-esteem.Meanwhile, get a social life. Don't know where you live or what things are generally like, but there's always more or less something to do. Make friends, etc.
>>28402560>It's just that nothing, no further education or career choice, seems like a good idea and any mistake I make could very easily send me back into weirdness. It's almost worse for me because my family will never kick me out.I know this feeling well. I'm Schizophrenic, unemployed, and I've been burdening my parents for the last 6 years since my total breakdown back in High School. But I've been making a lot of steps lately to work things out so I'm sure you can too. Just treat the mistakes and weirdness like something inevitable that you have to deal with rather than something to avoid or keep from happening. Or at least that's what I had to do to finally stop hiding away since my problems are sort of unfixable and I'll have to deal with them for the rest of my life regardless of how I choose to live. Not sure how much this applies to you, but from my perspective, it's better to just stop dwelling on fixing or avoiding a problem and learn to live with it despite it being there.
Thread's on the archive.
>>28402769I'm in engineering right now, 3rd year, it's being a rough ride but I hope the payoff in the end is worth it
>>28402849I wouldn't doubt it, I've had plenty of crazy fun times myself! I'm not surprised about living in a larger city, while it's easier to disappear in the mass of humanity, it's easier to find things to do as well.>>28402867I have a pretty good job, working the maximum number of hours allowed a part-timer, and I need a degree to be full-time. I have an amazing opportunity to run a gaming group AT my work as a way to draw people in, it's a public-space kind of thing - anything the staff can do to get people in the door, we're encouraged to do it. However, they are not the most encouraging group to be around - only one of them is a professional person, the rest are either fast-food workers or unemployed, and there's 11 of us that attend regularly. I also take regular trips to see college friends in the area, usually once or twice a month. It helps my mental state, but not "drive".>>28402886Wow, what a situation! That's good advice, I've been pretty interested in buddhist philosophy for a while, and acceptng things is important in that, and I definitely agree.The problem is that I'm comfortable enough with my hobbies, even the weirdest ones. It's how to progress in life. I don't see gaming and anime as anything significantly different than playing or watching sports, etc, and I have other hobbies besides those. But it's the "What do I do now?" problem. But I think your advice is still relevant. I just need to keep my cool and look at what's possible, not at trying to fix or avoid the problem.
>>28402769>>28402950What branch of engineering, friends
>>28402979Drive is something to be worked on later, and you're not really taking the right mindset. You're surrounded with people who are content with the lower rungs, and you need to look at them - and their lives - and decide if that's what you want, and from there derive your drive.You want that for yourself, fine. You can live the kind of life you want.If you don't, look at what they're doing and do something different.And correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't you say you had a degree? Do you mean a relevant degree?
>>28402981I don't know yet. All of them sound interesting, except Design Engineer.
>>28402981Software engineeringSo the engineering part is not necessary at all to do what I do, but at least I can call myself an engineer
>>28403017Oh, yeah, sorry. It's a graduate degree required. I'll level with you - my degree is in philosophy, and I work in a library. It is a relatively normal path for philosophy actually, but I am not interested in working at a library, especially not this library. I am uncomfortable here because I know I'm being picky, but that's how I feel.I have looked at their lives, and at my own, and I know I don't want that. But it seems like there are not many options for someone with my inclinations.Right now my plan is to save enough money by not paying rent to start moving looking for a job in a more populated area where there's more chances to interact with educated people. A lot of times I feel isolated here because of that, and in school I felt much better because of being able to talk to people and not have to hide who I am.All these engineers, any non-standard students? As in, gone back to school? Looking at that stuff from this end is really hard, googling STEM Adult Education is pretty fruitless. I have looked at that and not found much, it definitely seems aimed at undergrads.
>>28403091That's okay anon, I still consider you an engie.>Pic related
>>28403141Whoa, hey, don't even man. There's being picky, and then there's being realistic about what you do and don't want. This is the latter. If you were being picky, you'd have quit the job.Specify your inclinations?As for continued education, I've decided to just say "fuck it" and find an entry-level job in my first love: Finance.
shut-in here.Wanted to let you know I'm reading this and look forward to the next iteration.
>>28403221I guess the problem is that I really enjoy traditional-style academics, but don't have the credentials to pursue a succesful academic career.Barring that I am slowly teaching myself computer science stuff in an unstructured way. For example, I've been experimenting with different forms of Linux, and currently run exclusively Arch linux on my computer. However, it's a long way from being a marketable skill. I figure that at some point I'll feel comfortable enough with it to just slide into it. It's just hard for me to accept that, but I just need to bide for a while, remain sane, etc. I have a co-worker really into finance, he's semi-retired, ie he just works part time at the library, but I love listening to his stories.Anyway, I'm off to a gaming session. I don't want to be all despondent and reflective, so I'm gonna motor. Thanks for the talk, Anon, it really does make me feel better to talk about it, even this way.
>>28403293Has this quest not taught you anything?
>>28403412No because they don't quite apply to my situation, that or I'm in such denial that I can't apply it at my own stage of shut-in-ism
>>28403349So, go about it from the other end."Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach."Maybe get into education.
>>28403637Do you hate OP?
/r9k/ thread got a little weird
>>28403637Saw a comic about that today and I take offence to that assertion.A teacher is an educator, an inspiration, a moral guide, someone who can shape the minds of entire generations. Good teachers make pupils engaged, happy, eager to learn, to question, to help, to be brave, to be clever, to be considerate. Bad teachers can ruin the lives of THOUSANDS of pupils, over the course of their careers.Being a teacher isn't something you can just write off as something that's for people not good enough to get a 'real' job. It's the most important damn job on the face of the planet.On another note...>>28397942OP, I'm not sure if I hate you for making me feel this horrible, or if I should thank you for letting me know I still care about myself.I've been trying to live with clinical depression for anything from five to seven years. I can't pinpoint if it started after college, just before it, or somewhere in the middle. I'm unemployed; I fight with my mother nearly every day I see her; I often feel like there's no-one in the world who loves me as a person, rather than just feeling sorry for me; I despise myself and what I've let myself become, but I'm so afraid of failure, that I can't ever force myself to do anything to change anything; I constantly apologise to and hide from the people who want to help me the most, because I'm so afraid I've let them down, or I'm going to; I feel sometimes, like my own body and mind are fighting against my soul, not even letting me try and fix things - I tried mild, herbal anti-depressants, to skirt around my pathological hatred for pharmaceutical drugs that effect the brain and I just vomited them right back up. I can't even take the pills if they're crushed into a powder. I tried for half an hour and all I got was angry and violent, followed by further disgust at myself for failing something so simple and easy.>cont.
>>28404037I know exactly where Tammy and you and every other NEET in this thread, is coming from. So as much as I hate you right now... Thank you, for letting me know I still care about myself. Regardless of how twisted it is to hate every physical and mental aspect of myself and every action I've ever taken.
>>28404037That's not at all what I meant.If you're passionate about education, you should be part of it.
>>28404037>>28404050Take this from someone who dealt with depression and NEET-dom and overcame it: The only way to win is to fight, and fighting isn't bad once you get going.Sorry I can't give you more advice. Just never give up.
>>28404037I get you man. It's awful too since I can 'logically' think through all my problems and see solutions but they are impossible to enact as my current self.>nobody loves meOf course they do but I'll feel like this again in a few minutes>I hate myselfI just want to feel better but I'll hate myself for every mistake I've ever made rather than try to fix them>By sitting here doing nothing I'm CHOOSING failureOh but this easy failure is so much 'safer' than trying to go and succeed and actually failingYeah it sucks mate. Hope one of us makes it. Good luck.
>>28404057No-where near qualified. It's because I know teaching is important, that I know I should never be allowed anywhere near the job.>>28404136After all these years, I just don't want to go through it again. I put effort in, I do my level best to try and change for the better. For a few days, even a couple of weeks, I keep it up. Then I stumble once and it all falls apart. Or it comes time to test everything I've worked towards and I fail. All that effort, for nothing.I don't want to go through it again. I don't want that kind of hurt; the world telling me, "You're not good enough, even after all your efforts."That's why I think I'm going to keep coming back to these threads, you sick fuck, OP... Like a dog coming back to get beaten. Because if I can't help myself, I desperately want to help others. I put every moment of my day into doing that, at least and even if it's just an imaginary character in an online RP, I want to help one more. I want Tammy to be happy where I can't.Yeah, I know that's unhealthy and possibly mentally deranged. Shut the fuck up.
>>28404443yeah you're pretty pathetic
>>28404762I don't come to these threads to read the quest, I come to read your fucking loser stories
>>28404822We were doing so well
>>28404727>>28404822Why do you feel the need to be mean? Are you seriously telling me you've never felt absolutely horrible and hopeless? That you've never been sad, or cried? Would you like others to laugh at you, when you were sad? Would you like others to try and make you feel even WORSE, when you're like that?Now try to imagine feeling like that every day, for even the smallest reason, or even no reason at all. Imagine never having a break from feeling like you're less than human. Don't you think, if you felt like that, you'd like being mocked even less?So why do you think it's okay to do it to others?
>>28404727>>28404762>>28404822>>28404951>>28404963This isn't /b/, guys. If we don't feed the troll, it'll go away.
>>28404963Not the guy you're talking to, but, for the past 3 years i've been in a massive depression, do i tell people about it? Even on the internet anonymously? nope.then again, i am British, i was brought up like that. have honestly been sat next to a girl while waiting for a train, she burst out into tears, i got up and stood away from her. I made the right choice and i regret nothing. rule Britannia!
>>28405099I'm as British as you and yet, here I am.Is this a cry for help? Possibly. Probably. Maybe I just want to vent, or someone to listen. Maybe I just want someone to sympathise. I don't give a crap about our national culture; I believe people who are suffering should receive comfort.FYI? Awkward as it would have been. I fucking WISH I could have been you then. I'd give anything to be able to help someone in person. Do you even know what was going on in her life? Do you know what happened after? What if she was going through so much, that she couldn't help but cry in public, desperate for someone to help her and when no-one did, when people MOVED AWAY from her, maybe that just hurt her all the more. People can only take so much, Anon. The smallest kind gesture can change everything.So I don't deny I'd be freaked out and awkward as shit, but I'd like to think I could at least have the courage to speak up and say."Hey, what's wrong? Are you okay? Do you want to talk about it?"
>>28404822guys this is a problem. he dosent realize that there are much more pathetic people on /b/ and /v/.
