Let's tell each other about strangers doing things that made you feel comfy.

Recently I went to the laundry room to clean some clothes. I like to hang around in the laundry room and play video games and keep an eye on my clothes because I don't trust people not to take them out of the machine.
Sitting at the table was a man wearing a US Marines (or some other military) cap, I guess he was a veteran but I didn't ask. He had a creaky old laptop on the table and was playing a Christmas themed hidden objects game.

Pic unrelated.

I don't really know if comfy is the correct word, but like a year ago i was in the bus with my earphones on, and also the guy sitting next to mine.
I play piano since I'm a kid, and Ihave the habit of start playing an imaginary piano every time I'm listening a song that I already know how to play it. I think at the time I was listening to Bach, so I was trying to resist the temptation of doing that autistic shit, when suddenly the guy next to mine started doing that exact thing. That was odd af, so I decided to do it too, thereby we spend the whole trip (about 30 minutes) playing our imaginaries pianos, and sometimes laughing, but we didn't talk to each other. I kinda regret it cause he seemed pretty based.

Have you ever ran away from home, or been kicked out, or just been homeless in general?

Depends on how long you think you would need to be away from a real kitchen with ingredients?

If it was just a handful of days and I had the money, I would get some MRE type meals, because they have the heat source to cook it with integrated into the kit, lugging about some type of hobo stove or something could be a bother, especially if you have no experience using it.

If you were going to be heading into the wild (regardless if urban or forest kind of wild) for a while, like weeks, then I'd get some type of portable kitchen unit that runs on some heat source that is both inexpensive and not too weighty, like maybe the gel type fuel (think its called FireDragon? same company makes lightweight portable stoves to burn it in). And then a large suitable container for water (need to be enough both for drinking and cooking liquids), and then some spices, some red lentils (cooks fast enough for portable stoves) and whatever else you could put in lentil stew that stores easily during travel circumstances. E.g. rice, spices, millets, oats (nice to cook on its own to change up things, just lentils gets boring).
That should be a very efficient way to survive, a weeks worth of food couldnt cost more than 10 bucks, if you dont account for the price of the spices. Fuel and the portable kitchen thing shouldnt be more than something like 10-20 bucks max either, if you're buying it at a store with sane prices.

If you are going to be homeless for a while I wouldn't put your primary focus on food. Shelters and churches are very generous and many people tend to gain weight while sleeping rough. That said shelters aren't very pleasant places to stay.

If it is short-term innawoods for a few weeks solid fuel as >>11696 said is a good idea, I'd also recommend wood gas stoves. Much more efficient and produces almost no smoke compared to campfires/conventional wood stoves, a Silverfire is around $30. Do get a concealment cover for your tent, getting harassed by cops and rude people are going to be something you have to deal with.

Good luck sushi.

I think there's two kinds of good smells. First are just legitimately good smells, like fresh coffee or a forest after rain. Second are smells that on their own are average but are associated with memories of a good or happy time in your life. I have some cheap cologne I no longer wear but still keep in the restroom and whiff every once in a while to bring back memories of younger days staying out late with friends.

I love different smells. My favorite incense would probably have to be sandalwood. Sage smells pretty nice too and has a cleaning effect…

When I first bought my bed it had a very earthy smell that I want to replicate to this day. Its a fully organic 50/50 wool cotton futon.

perfumes and stuff change their smell over time coz of the volatile ingredients that eventually dissipate. so if that cologne is like 2 years old or something since you opened it, it's probably changed a bit.

Thank you all for responding, it means a lot. I don't know anybody in person who has withdrawn from a degree so it really felt like I was being left behind by all my peers (especially my sister, who is incredibly successful).

In all honesty I should have quit after the first year, but I was so stubborn that I carried on even when it was clear that it brought me nothing but stress. Having had some weeks now to reflect, it does feel like a weight off of my shoulders.

How did you take your next steps? I suppose this is no different from having graduated, but all the ideas I had for what to do next in my life revolved around me passing the degree. Suddenly the future is so uncertain and I find it scary

not my story but my brother went to university for 2 years because my parents forced him After not being able to decide on a major and dropping out he turned his attention full-time to his hobbies: photography and photo retouching.
He took a two-year associates degree from a local community college in this field and worked a bunch of odd jobs and gigs for several years, scraping by. Eventually he landed a full-time position at a large agency and now makes more than many of the people I went to grad school with, without any of the debt.
So if there's something you'd rather be/do, work hard at it and maybe you will find your path.

Yes actually.

For the time yes. I was very inexperienced and had little means to pay for it. Me back then wasn't going to be able to pull it off. My second go around we're getting that degree though. However long it takes.

Ooh how was it? I've considered pursuing a degree in that field. Its been a long time dream of mine to get behind the civil rights movement like my grandfather and his father before him. They were in the offices of the NAACP and LULAC back in the day as an accountant and a treasurer. The lawyers were the real warriors though, and that's where I want to be.

I was heavily encouraged to go to university after school but had no real ambition or direction. I decided to study biology because it was one of the few subjects I enjoyed in school but quickly fell behind, failed all my courses, and dropped out after a semester.

>>11486 has the right advice, working menial jobs for 5 years was really useful. I think a sense of pointlessness and depression is just endemic to who I am because I've never been able to shake it but at least now I have the maturity to sustain full time study in something useful.

Don't feel like a failure, it's just part of growing up. Spend the next couple of years figuring out what it is you want to do if you need to, just try not to waste it. My main regret is simply not going back sooner or using my time to have more interesting experiences. Still, it's good to know that it's never too late; I know a chick who quit her job as a pharmacist to study CS because she was bored of her career. There's no shame in being in education when you're older, not everyone follows the same trajectory in life.

I studied pre-med for 3 years but had to drop out because I was just doing what I was told and wasn't really coping and ended up in a psych hospital. I spent about 5 years in and out of different life stages and only last year I finally went back to University to study what I really want to.

It obviously really, really affected my life and its progression but I would never say dropping out was a mistake. It's just part of the tapestry of my life it took to get where I am now.

In the past I have been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and more specifically social anxiety disorder.
It was so bad I couldn't even look people in the eye and I would start shaking whenever I feel like I am looked at, I would run out of classrooms at university because of anxiety attacks.
I can't remember what I was on back at the time.

I have now started a new course ( which basically guranatees a job ) and it's back. It's more under control because I am more mature and have learned to breathe, try to calm myself and distract myself but it still doesn't let me function as a human being. ( + )

I am too poor to afford therapy but my cousin works as a nurse. I have access to: paroxetine, citalopram, sertraline, venlafaxine, regabalin, tradozone and alprazolam.

( + ) I'm currently anticipating social situations and taking 0.50 of xanax ahead with like half or 3 quarters of an hour but this will not last me long because I'm developing resilience to the drug ( I used to take 0.25 ).

I exercise using the bodyweight fitness app whenever I can. I do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks. I used to drink tea but at some point I realised black tea unsettles me and I kind of stopped.

My concerns are anhedonia and gaining weight because this happened last time.
I plan on informing myself for a few weeks first and I am seeking help.

I'm in a similar situation. Anxiety is affecting my success in college and work. I know it doesn't make your situation any better, but just know that you're not alone with this kind of stuff.

All I know is the less I go out, the more anxious I get. When I used to have more of a social life, socialization was easier for me. The less you do it, the less familiar it is, and the harder it gets. It's like working out: you get bigger muscles when you lift more often. But if you take a long break where you don't go to the gym at all, you get in worse shape again. It's like that, but for mental health too.

I am currently looking into some sliding scale and medicaid places. There are free or sliding scale clinics that can help people who don't have a lot of money. Of course, your mileage may vary.

But don't give up. Try different methods of help, try to find supportive groups, try to reach out to resources that might be able to help you. Google local places related to counseling, mental health, sliding scale, medicaid, job help, etc. There are resources out there.

This resonates with me. If I feel someone's presence is augmenting my social anxiety I just start a conversation with any excuse. If I'm in a class I take my time and talk with everyone. I don't even care, I do it so my anxiety level is lower.

There's something peculiar about falling asleep as the first rays of dawn start peeking in through your blinds. A feeling of guilt, mixed with comfiness, as you fall asleep when everyone else rises from their slumber. Unhealthy, but acceptable in reasonable amounts.
It happens to me far too often, though…

When do sushi rolls usually fall asleep? I don't doubt there are other people here with wack schedules.

I used to go to bed consistently at 1:00 am, after a full day of work, a small workout, and some video games. After the coronavirus crisis, my stress levels and workload went up a lot, now even if I try to stay awake I usually fall asleep on the couch at 10 or 11. Which is really frustrating because it feels like I have to choose between sleep or personal free time.

You need to take time off work before you burn yourself out.
You can concentrate your workload and have no personal time, that's fine, but it must be balanced out with time completely off work. e.g. 4 days on, 3 days off; or 2 weeks on, 1 week off; that sort of thing. You have to negotiate this with your boss.

I'm 30 with a decent(ish) job these days. When I started running imageboards ~10 years ago I was a NEET, and it took me 6 years of NEETdom before I went back to school out of sheer boredom. It's not until about 2 years ago that I was somewhat financially stable, and I am finally able to rent a room to myself in an apartment, without having to share it, as of about a week ago. It's my first time having a room entirely to myself in about a decade. I have been a little distant from my imageboards for the past several years while I focus on other stuff, but I still check the front pages every day and read or respond to threads sometimes, usually sushi rollymously. I do still spend a pretty decent amount of time online, I'm just running several other communities now and spending a lot less time online overall than I used to.
