Do you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.

Chat/community/personal ads are no longer allowed on the rest of the site, except maybe on /hell/.

Important Note: This doesn't mean that you can't talk about communities or chat groups. You could, for example, have a thread where you ask people about web communities they visit. You just can't open your thread with an advertisement.

One post per service please! Duplicate ads may be deleted. This especially includes discord links. To make a permanent discord link, click on instant invite, go to advanced settings, and change the expire time to never. Dead links suck. If your discord link expires, your post will be deleted and you may receive a short warning ban.

Congrats OP.
My personal opinions on uhhh, the "she" matter aside; I'm really happy that you've not only found a place to stay but got closer to someone you care about.

I'm similar to you in that I over think things and end up in a self fulfilling loop of concern. I'm pleased that you pulled through such a thing, on such a scary matter too.

I wish you long lasting stability and happiness! I hope you will come back to update us in like a month just so we know you're not raped and harvested.

How do I gain the encouragement to study? Every single time I get even the slightest bit of encouragement, it'll only last like… one week. After that, it requires me to see my grades plummet to the ground to gain back my will to study. I hate being this much of a lazy bastard, but I can't stop it no mater how hard I try. I know when I'm procrastinating, but while I'm doing it I just give the typical "oh well" answer. I usually procrastinate either watching anime or browsing the web. At first this only happened to me with tests. Like I was able to do homework but I could never bring myself to study, but now I can't do either. I'm slowly breaking my chances to succeed at life and I very damn well know it. My parents don't tell it to me directly but I know for a fact they're disappointed in me. I'm certain that a lot of you guys are also studying. How do you do it? How do you manage to not procrastinate?

 No.3425

When I studied, I found that I studied better when I went to school every day, left my laptop at home, and spent a few hours reading after class. If I brought my laptop, I just ended up goofing around on that instead of studying. I had to make it a habit to go to school every day tho (which was the hard part for me).

In my school it is mandatory to bring a laptop ;_;
I guess I could try to force myself to not use it unless it's for class… I say that here now but when the time comes I just know I'll just end up using it to goof around. By the way, I already go there everyday. I guess the one good thing I've been doing is I never skip class.

You could try to make an ungoof-mode. Of course it'll only work if you don't just disable it.

A seperate account where you don't have file access rights to study unrelated media and youtube / chans are redirected to an offline page that says "you should be studying"?

In the end it's just tools to change your habits.
But tools can help.

I think the most important thing is that you must realize that it is hard to change a habit. You will have to make a mindful decision every day that you will try to keep at it. You have to catch yourself when you start up a movie / open up a site instead of studying. Every time. It will take time before the new pattern is the automatic one.

I hope you make it, because I'm the same way, but I procastrinated to fix my procastrination too long and I did break my chances and became a NEET a while instead, still in the process of picking up the pieces and save what I can.

It kinda boils down to that it's up to you, your willpower, and how much you are prepared to fight for the wellbeing of your future self.

(and how much less you valued your future choice of career vs. another ep. of Boku no Pico)

Reading stuff like this is depressing. I can never imagine abusing or taking advantage of a woman like that, yet I hear about guys doing it a lot. It's hard not to hate men like that as someone who's been alone all his life. It sickens me how they take what they have for granted.
I actually used to have a crush on a girl who was in almost the exact same situation a few years back (she also had autism, but I couldn't even notice). She even liked me back it seemed, but due to distance and being stuck with that jackass nothing ever came of it. I'm pretty sure she forgot all about me but I was never able to forget her. Call me a white knight if you will, but I really wanted to save her from him.

That doesn't sound like a good way to live. I think you should make steps to improve your situation. Either he starts treating you better, or you should find ways to move out on your own. Either way it will be hard, but I think either of those two would be an improvement over your current situation.

Not a bad idea but unfortunately I've seen/been in those places before from my childhood years, they're not good/unhelpful in my area.
>The possibility of things going really wrong does not mean you should stop acting in good faith.
I plan to keep acting in good faith, I'm thinking of knocking some empathy back into him by saying and recalling all the bad things he's done and how it felt as of late. If it doesn't work I'll need to move on somehow.

I've thought up of something if he doesn't treat me better, I have a case-worker/doctor and I'm hoping she could get me on my feet if things go from bad to worse. I'm a bit scared of talking to her about it on the off chance she has no ideas…

Is 30 years old too late to start trying to create a life with no work experience? I don't care about getting "rich" or anything like that. I'm also wanting to try to actually take time and maybe try to learn some skills. I realized I've wasted 12 years of my adulthood already and it's going to be very difficult to make up for it. But has anyone here attempted this? Were you successful? Do you have tips for a borderline hikki that has been NEET for his entire life? I know one of the first things I need to work on in terms of my skills, that's building my social skills to communicate with people face to face. What's the struggle though with most of this is, I absolutely despise the general public, and can't stand being around them at all. I've tried over the years to figure out some way to make money online. But I've pretty much hit a dead end almost every which way I try to take. I've thought about going back to my roots and creating art again. I was somewhat in a better place mentally during this time. I used to do some photography and sketches I would post on deviantart over the years. However, I've long since taken all of my content down from the internet by 2013. I also used do short films on YouTube. But I hate what YouTube has become and not sure if I even want to try that direction again. I stopped even trying once gaming channels started taking off. I even tried out creating music for flash animators for a while. This was something I was okay with but it wasn't making me any money and I wasn't exactly that great at it. Mostly just composed random ambient music as well as some synth loops. I feel like taking my entire life and just trying to start from scratch. Is this even possible?

It's not too late. The wall of your text doesn't matter. You still have a ton of time and possibilities.

> Do you have tips

You can buy a cheap small house, dig a well, install solar – and there you have a cheapass home you can rot in to the death. Basically you'd need money only for food and internets.

>they can just hire in this 18 year old fresh out of school that will more than likely stay with the company longer than someone like me
I think it is harder to keep an 18 year old than someone older. 18 year olds have no responsibility, and can quit on a moments notice whenever they feel like it. I see that in stores around here, the older guys have worked there for ages, while the younger ones don't often last more than a few months.

>>2300 here. Between work being busy and me breaking my collarbone, I fell out of habit of drawing for a while. That's changing, however, now that I have a drawing tablet!

I have to say, drawing with a tablet is a lot easier for me than drawing traditionally, if for no other reason than because I'm much less worried about making mistakes thanks to being able to undo them or perfectly erase them.

>>3052
I'm thinking of drawing some comics myself, so I'm very curious to learn more about how to do paneling well. Do you have any resources you'd suggest, or should I just pay close attention to comics I like and try to glean information from them?


BTW excellent work sushi rolls; keep up the good work and keep posting~

 No.3104

>>3103
As I said, I'm just a passionate reader and can't draw. Everything I know is from hearing and reading things from various people who do draw.
All I can suggest is experimenting with your storyboards before "inking". Analyze your structure like I did, try placing some stuff a little differently, see what sticks. When reading try and analyze pages that really click with you and that feel off. Try and look if the people you like talked about how they draw, maybe see some livestreams (Pixiv recently introduced streaming; I enjoyed watching MiA's Tsukushi and just now Tadataka_k. OPM's Murata famously streams, but I'm not sure you can glean much from him)
Eventually, you'll probably just have it in your hands and will be able to skip any prep and draw great from scratch. You'll develop your own flow, trying to see what others do won't matter in the end. It's all about practice.
Or so I've heard.

I haven't been feeling any big effort stuff recently. Any attempt to force it left me with a blank canvas and frustration. I kinda want to play around in sai a bit because I've never got too into it but I guess that will have to wait for now.

I've played around on oekaki a bit though, it's nice making a few small messy drawings with others.

>>3103
I've been using a tablet for so long now that traditional is too much pressure and I'm always too scared to do it.
I like that I can just throw something out with a tablet and erase until I decide "that looks right".

Same. I wish I could be as content with that as you seem to be. I know one should be happy for what they have not sad for what they don't have, but that's easier said than done I've found.
Most people my age seem to be struggling for money, living paycheck to paycheck (if they even have a job), while dealing with the stress of school and massive amounts of debt. Meanwhile I've got a small savings, money to blow, a decent house, a paid off car, and a job I don't hate. I should by all accounts me happy but I'm not. Feels like it doesn't matter if I'm doing well financially if I have no one to share it with (no friends or partner), and I doubt that'll ever change. Still, I do 'try' to be content with what I have.

My stance against space travel is uncompromisingly tongue-in-cheek. As are my stances against world peace and the molecular integrity of Earth as well as its inhabitants.

Furthermore, time for another wish, seeing as I am infuriatingly neither dead, romantically involved, nor under the influence of unimaginable suffering.

I wish for every animal, abstract concept, man, woman, and child on Earth be doomed to sexual frustration. There shall never be another orgasm to be had upon this planet, no matter what new depths of depravity humanity sinks to in search of satisfaction, and no matter the damage both the degeneracy and the blue balls cause civilization, I wish that we shall never find release again. How many will die with futility in the name of cum? Not enough, I say. Even if everyone dies in the name of cum, it will never be enough.

> the corpse of the mother we killed
I wish people would stop mixing this up. Humans are not killing the planet, we're mostly killing ourselves and maybe some animals along with us. The planet has been here for billions of years before humans, and will still be here for billions of years after humans. Mankind's footprint on this planet is microscopic in the grand scheme of things, and it's arrogant to think more of it. You might as well tell a kid at the beach that he's ruining the ocean by pissing in the water. The ocean is fine, It's the kid who's standing in a pool of his own piss.
If the planet and can survive getting slammed by a meteor that wiped out almost all life, it can survive some plastic bottles and wrappers.

This is kind of a reply both to OP and >>3342. I'm a bit more optimistic - in terms of learning (or wisdom if you like) we can all be better off in ten years providing we live that long. It's never been easier to absorb new knowledge, either from legal sources (the myriads of out-of-copyright books on Project Gutenberg or archive.org) or illegal ones (Library Genesis). This especially applies if you don't like today's culture; just drop out of it and tune into the wealth of stuff from the past. Go back a century and watch a silent film, or two and half millennia and read a play by Aristophanes.

If you don't like reading on your computer (I don't), you can print out PDFs in a booklet format which allows you to fold them into a holdable, physical thing. Or, if you have one, use a public library - if yours doesn't have a book you want, ask a librarian to order it for you. Or go to a nearby city and check out the second-hand book shops there. I can buy a few books which will keep me busy for months for £10 here.

My point is: whatever your situation, you can be better off in ten years' time by learning. There's no need to bemoan the present when the past is out there waiting for you.

If the world continues in the direction it's going, those who accept the invasiveness of technology and the utility it brings will live much better. Cynical people who frequent imageboards will hate it though. I think most people will love the facility of modern day life in 10 years, we will loathe it. Probably anyways.

>>3342 here. I've found it harder and harder to learn new things and retain knowledge/memory the older I get. I feel like my brain is rotting away behind my eyes. Like you said however I've turned my back on the current pro-degenerate culture of today and it's creatively bankrupt media to focus a bit more on older stuff. Problem is you can only rewatch old movies or play old games so many times. I think living in my past has only done be harm however. It's kept me from moving forward and doing anything with my life.
