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.

Discord fulfils a different niche to imageboards/forums though. It wouldn't split the userbase at all.
At most it would compete with the IRC, but that could be a good thing given the advantages that discord has.

I used to be pretty active on the IRC and had some nice conversations there even though it didn't have much life.

Here's a fun game. Reply to the previous post's question with what is your favourite (blank) with your reasoning why and then ask a question to the next poster.

I'll start. What is your favourite season, sushi roll?

my favourite is the ps vita. ive always loved handheld consoles mostly because growing up with two siblings meant i never got to use the tv consoles much. i feel like th ps vita is the ultimate handheld, its not too big, there's 1 (touch)screen and the touch receptors on the back are also lots of fun.
whats your favourite sport, sushi roll?


I enjoy football/soccer. It might be the boring answer, but the simplicity of how the basic game is played jives with me a lot, and there's less focus on quick action than a lot of other sports. It's still not a sport I'd like playing, but I don't really like playing sports in general unless biking, hiking, and the like count.
Surprised this one hasn't been asked yet, what's your favourite sushi?


I like that onigiri with the slimy stringy seaweed in the middle.
What's your favourite thing to sing sushi roll?


I like mumbling nonsense for no-lyric songs, which could also go in that embarassment thread.
What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage besides water?


Strawberry milkshakes are delicious, I don't have them often but it's always a treat.

What's your favourite sweet, sushi?

Do any of you enjoy going out/socializing?

Life was pretty much just online friends (gaming) through high school, did a 180 and partied a bunch in college, had a group I hung around with…and now for years it's just been my girlfriend and I. Didn't keep in touch with college people, never pursued friendships outside of work. I still talk to and see a couple of friends from childhood every so often but that's it. I don't even know if I mind very much, but it's something I ponder sometimes.

No. I prefer staying inside, watch anime or play videogames, than socializing


File: 1589678129240.jpg (5.17 MB, 2928x4074, 74256159_p0.jpg)

I like socializing on rare occasions but my "social battery" runs out pretty quickly, and I end up having a hard time making long term friends because of it.


I remember the first couple years of hikkidom I had this idea that I was above the need for friendship, validation, love, support, but after a decade I realise completely delusional that was.


I generally dislike it, though sometimes I want to hang around with others. But of course, my usual withdrawal leaves me with few contacts outside my family and I feel that they'd be bothered if I suddenly contacted them (probably since I'd feel that way if the roles were reversed). I'm pretty boring to be around anyway, since I often prefer just being in the company of others but not an active participant in conversation or activity.


when I was in my earlier 20s and single, I often felt lonely and eager to be around other people. now at 31 with a family and a career, I treasure every moment of solitude i can get.

Recommend me something sushi rolls. Doesn't even have to be media. You could tell me to learn to skateboard or something. I'm just really bored

Try something different. Mahjong can be pretty fun and soul crushing once you really get into it.


Play chess with random sushis with lichess and things like that. It seems like a good way to bond for those of us who don't have the normal videogames.


Study occult topics.
Play Undertale. (really.)
Watch anime films and series by Satoshi Kon.
Try cooking something with lots of steps.
Learn to make some mixed drinks.

Sounds nice sushi roll, have you been watching anything?
Thanks, you too!


Hello. I am a person. Do not regularly come here.

God morgen mine sushi. I ended up only getting about two hours sleep last night due to anxiety again so I stayed up all night. I'm going to try really hard to stay up all day this time so that I'll be tired enough to sleep through the anxiety. I've spent the night and early morning (it's 9:03am at the time of my typing this out) practicing on memrise and duolingo, so I haven't been entirely wasteful with this time. I've also played a bit of COD 2, I just can't get into games like I used to be able to when I was a teenager though.
I genuinely have no idea what I want to do with my life. I'll be starting a bachelor degree in IT in July this year since IT seems like a good career choice and I'm at least somewhat competent with computers. The benefit of this particular degree is that interim awards so if I meet all the requirements I can drop out of the degree but still get either a diploma or associate degree out of it rather than it being a waste. Part of the problem with my anxiety I think is the fact that I've wasted a decade of my life doing nothing but being a NEET that was unproductive even by NEET standards. Assuming I do end up going through with the full degree, I'll be 30 by the time I achieve my bachelor degree and I feel like that's really late, especially since it's not like I've had real life work experience in between high school and now like most mature age uni students do.
I also don't have anyone to vent to about things in real life and it's kind of hard to do with people online since they don't fully understand my situation like mum did.


>Do not regularly come here.
You're not the boss of me! I'm gonna come here every day.


Is it weird that I want to learn mathematical analusis just for the fun of it? I feel guilty if I'm not learning a marketable skill (analysis alone is debatable to be of practical use), but I also enjoy it much more.

Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?

I spend practically all day browsing various boards and forums and doing nothing of value. I have a couple non-computer-based hobbies but barely any motivation. I've tried to make my computer time more productive (studying languages, programming, even just watching stuff or playing games) but I can never stick with it because to be honestly I hate the computer and everything to do with it.

I'm at the point where you could call me internet addicted, but it's mostly because I feel like I have nothing else to do. I could stop using the computer, but I have no idea how I'd fill my time. I guess I'd stare at the wall? My social life isn't too vibrant either and that doesn't help.

Has anyone else been here / does anyone have some ideas?

>I guess I'd stare at the wall?
Ah, the Zen route.

As for myself, I've tried nothing and I'm all out of ideas. I could just read, like I used to do, but that is just another form of consumption. There really doesn't seem to be much in this world that is "both" interesting and attainable.


>Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?
Get busy with real life stuff, from exercise to going to the library or walks to meet people in meetups, events, conventions idk
Well that's how I try, sometimes it works, but for job reasons need to get better at coding so that needs a computer.


it's hard isn't it. The way is to find something fun outside of computers to fill your time with.


Yup, I think distraction is key. You have to fill the void with something else.


Exactly. I've been brainstorming for weeks now on something I can do off the computer (and outside in general), and I finally found something: playing w/ a super ball. Childish? Maybe. But if it's not hot/rainy outside, it's great cardio and a fun way to kill 30 minutes.

Today OP got caught singing in the woods. What's up with you?

The problem is that there's no place to find people based on common interests that would have a bigger userbase (and also wouldn't be branded as a hookup/dating app, as I don't believe you should start any relationship that way).


Yup, relationships from there usually don't stay. It's impossible to make an account too, so it'd have to be a miracle to actually meet someone worthwhile there.


Keep in mind that people tend to have more shallow profiles than they actually are. Most people feel pretty uncomfortable putting their real self out there, so they tend towards the safer side of things.
Although, this is my experience gathered from apps besides tinder.


I know, I know… some introverts have problems with describing themselves, especially in good light, so they either don't write bios at all, or make them quite uninteresting.
Seems to happen even on apps designed for introverts where you can't even upload an avatar.


I used to get embarrassed doing that but after years of practice I'm actually good enough that I just sometimes break out in loud operatic song while I'm walking around in public or driving with the window down. Ganbare!


I like to find music by going through YT channels that just upload random songs they like. The channels are often just obscure songs so I go in with the mindset everything they upload is obscure. So sometimes they upload popular music without me realizing because I don't know anything about pop culture. Due to this confusion I've called arctic monkeys a 'cool obscure band' in front of music nerds.

I know who this was now. Damn. They mean a lot to me, and I hope they know that. Gonna send them an email now actually.


A sushi tale in three acts.


A mysterious backstory, an exciting twist, stay tuned to find out what happens!

What are you having to drink, fellow rolls?

I went out for dinner tonight and had a few different drinks: a cocktail called Chuck Norris which was bourbon, ginger and lemon; two different drinks in a jar; one spiced rum, pineapple, lime and ginger ale, and the other bourbon, orange, cinnamon and ginger ale. Finished off with some sake. Delicious times all round.

I had two bottles of Banrock Station pink moscato tonight.


File: 1590259619235.png (29.61 KB, 299x600, 2019030514_tomintoul_peaty….png)

Sipping some whisky, been a while since I had some, generally go for beer. But got two bottles today cause it's more compact and lasts longer (beer is so moreish, at least for me), longer til I need to reup.
First bottle is a Tomintoul / Peaty Tang, it's pretty alright, if a bit lacking in body. Think it'd actually go pretty well with some sushi, got cravings for some because of it.

Doubling up on >>7548
Got too curious and had to open the other one too, Tamnavulin Sherry Cask.
It's delicious, but very sweet, could be cloying at the wrong time but right now it really hit the spot.
Really satisfies, the Tomintoul I could see myself drinking throughout a party or something but this you don't want more than one glass of.


File: 1590505027293.png (50.19 KB, 490x490, gin.png)

I tried some new gin recently because I was in the mood for some gin and tonics, it's really good. Makes a good martini as well. Pic related, it's got cucumber and acai in it, quite tasty.
Very nice, I love peaty scotches, and scotch in general. My go to is Laphroaig, or Glenfiddich for something without the peat.


File: 1590506464800.jpg (107.46 KB, 1200x1200, lubuski.jpg)

Cheap Polish gin, usually with tonic or used for some other drinks.

I am 20 years old and I never told my mom that I loved her.

Today is Mother's Day and I finally did it. Cheers, sushi!


Today's mother's day?


That's really sweet. I don't know what sort of relationship you have with your family that would make that the case, and I won't ask, but hearing something like that made me smile. I wish the best for you and your family, sushi.
Mother's day is one of those holidays that's celebrated on different days in different countries I think.


Sounds about right, I distinctly remember almost forgetting to say happy mother's day like a few weeks back
