does anyone know any particularly comfy youtubers or podcasts?

i'm always looking for something comfy or interesting to listen to in my spare time, and listening to people talk helps me relax a lot.

one podcast i'm a fan of is the wisenheimers podcast which was two animators from newgrounds talking about stupid shit. it ended a while a go, but managed to be pretty funny and chill while it lasted.

i also some lets players like vinesauce, jontron era game grumps and another guy called manlybadasshero who mostly does horror game lp's, but i havent found anything as comfy as i would prefer.

Reviewbrah's still going strong. He uploaded a review of deep-fried Oreos yesterday. Besides the fast food videos, he has a podcast, which he also broadcasts on short-wave radio. My impression is that he spends the rest of his life reading the news and staying up late browsing the web or going on nightwalks.

/pol/ made him a meme, yeah. They were also responsible for sending out tweets saying that he died in the Manchester terror attack in 2017.

(Didn't see a particular thread for this topic so making one) Anyone here married/have a family or otherwise older than the average imageboard user?

I hit 31 this year, have had a family for several years. Grew up and still enjoy chan culture yet somehow I've become trapped in suburban normie hell. It's a weird sort of loneliness. Anyone else know this feel?

I'm not the person you're replying to, but I think the combination of passion and talent is the most desirable thing - anyone who has one without the other is justified in being upset about it.
At the end of the day though, if I had to choose, I think I'd rather have passion without talent than vice versa. I'd rather have fun doing something I suck at than be bored doing something I'm bad at. And besides, your skill at something will increase the longer and more often you do it. Maybe other people's skill increases faster than yours does, and maybe you end up being older than you'd like to be by the time you can really consider yourself talented, but you will get good eventually.

Does passion really equate to having fun with something?
My hobby makes me feel miserable the vast majority of the time. Maybe it's an obsession rather than passion, but I don't see the necessary positivity in it. It's a calling, not a fun trip.
Just like all good feelings, passion is nice but fleeting. I'd rather be apathetic and do good and maybe see it as an accomplishment than to be really into something and failing at it. Besides, with honed skill the honeymoon phase ends and what should replace it is comfort, not more honeymoons. Finding balance after the learning storm of ups and downs seems more valuable to me.

I wish I had either, but I suck at everything. I am unskilled and even though I do enjoy one aspect or other of a given activity, as soon as I hit the sort of glass ceiling of my ability, I get frustrated and simply cannot proceed, I lose all joy and I am unable to get past the current problem, not satisfactorily. So I stop enjoying it and thus question whether it's passion or rather some aesthetic- or ego-driven vision that I'm pursuing, rather than passion for the craft itself.

To add to what the other sushi said, make sure you're also getting enough vitamins. People tend to develop slight vitamin D deficiencies over the winter months due to getting less sunlight, which can cause depression in some people. Low vitamin D also weakens the immune system, which is greatly affected by mood as well, meaning you could be getting sick more often than you should be.

Get well soon, sushi!

I never really relate to most people I meet in my everyday life, I just can't relate to them. I don't think this is a problem with me, or a problem with them though. I just don't get how their minds work, or what motivates them. But I usually manage to find one or two interesting people that I have good chemistry with, and we can have nice discussions and stuff. It's very nice to have these experiences, because it's so easy to feel so alone in the world when you've gone without them for a long time. I'm kind of worried about how difficult it will be to meet these sorts of people after I graduate college though. But I guess I have faith in the dignity of ordinary, everyday life, and it's not for me to judge others just because I can't relate to them.

I want to turn back time sure, but because I want to do everything and end up doing nothing.

I haven't met a person in my age group that was so much more better off than me to feel like that, closest case I know it wasn't because she was successful, she just had skills I would die to have and seemed to have everything truly settled.

I guess I remain optimist, a colleague got a terrific job offer and all that went through my head was "I could do what he did, maybe I can get a similar offer too"

I'm 19 and young. Other people my age seem to be having so much fun and are full of energy, and, here I am, tired of the struggle already. I feel as if my ambition has been pulled out of my body and buried underground, and I am left wandering around as an aging piece of flesh. I just wish I'd find something that I could live with a stronger feeling for, you know? So that I wouldn't waste these precious days of youth. So I wouldn't feel as if there were something wrong with me.

It's not going to get easier from now on and your brooding is (While understandable) is not going to get you anywhere, You will keep regurgitating the same bullshit over and over but time will just keep on marching as you stay in the same spot. There is nothing wrong with feeling like this but don't let it drag you into the bottomless pit of depression, The walls there are very slippery and there isn't going to be anyone to help you out of there.
The best way to get ambition is to become engaged in something, Same with passion. These things are earned and the best way to earn them is by action. Just do things and keep doing things, Anything is good. Shift focus from yourself into the world around you.

"Why does everyone get to experience their years of life properly, while I couldn't? I see. It's because everyone hates me."

That's what I told myself. Physically 17, mentally 13, tested. Will be uni graduate in a year, already landed a secure job in the government. Sounds good? Yeah, it is. But I'm unfortunately such an ungrateful prick who hated it all.

I envied all of my friends who got to be a proper teenager like a kid envying a toy. I hated everyone in my uni classes like a kid who just can't understand adults.

I never really got to envy or love anything when I was a kid. I never asked for toys either. I was always set up to be "successful" by my family. All of that piled up years later until I'm finally "mature" enough to see how are my friends doing. I grew to hate everything. I started to envy everyone else at the smallest things. I don't see any purpose in living because I can't understand it.

Really, what's wrong with me? I have such a good and well-off life, but I just can't grow to love it.
Maybe that's why everyone hates me. I'm such an ungrateful piece of shit, after all.

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.

Almost never now. I have 2 or 3 people on discord and a penpal I've had for a year. I don't bother with people anymore, and being a solitary hikki/neet is preferable to dealing with people's bullshit. Not like most people interest me anyway.

Sure, I like socializing. Most people I see these days I know from the internet though and most socializing I do is just sitting around and drinking beer. I didn't have many friends growing up and most of them became junkies or neets who I'm not that much in contact with anymore. Sometimes I wish I had some normal offline friends but I guess I'm pretty happy with my situation.

I live in the suburbs outside the city. It's a 10-15 minute drive to the city. As a kid I only went downtown to visit my cousin or for some event the city was having (they had the science museum with a bunch of cool stuff, Chinese new years, and food truck events). The city is kind of a mess because it's getting a 'rich people' boom, or how ever you would say it. The city's major railway is still being built along with a hundred other random things. it's not really comfy, but sleek, modern, and hip. It's not bad, but the place is getting some of it's soul sucked out by modernization.

I live in a big city but it's extremely spread out and not very 'urban' for most of it. I don't really like that, but even though the public transit isn't good because of that it's still livable (1 hr commute to my work about 10 miles away). I honestly don't like most of the city very much, because most of the living spaces have that suburban, exclusive, alien feel or I wouldn't fit in. Anywhere with character is super poor or totally unaffordable, and there's unofficial but real segregation. Most places that are 'nice' feel fake and corporate. But there are still some good old neighborhoods, nice libraries and stuff, and at least the areas i live are very international, and you can find any kind of thing or person somewhere.

I wouldn't mind living in a small city or town if I knew i had friends there, but I'd be scared to move out and hope it worked out socially - that's the most important factor for me. I'm not really interested in living either in the suburbs or way out in the country, though… I want to be able to walk to things.
