I feel like that too, but I don't know how to stay comfortably independent in solitude. Hard to find a source of income I think. Might be possible through certain crafts, but that also requires some investment, which might not be possible for NEET and low income loners.

Hmm. I worked at factory earning almost minimum wage, while studying, for 4 years, before moving on to a proper office job.

Living w/ my parents and adopting a very strict financial regime helped me out a lot. I managed to build a decent PC, buy a car, go to anicons, travelled to Japan, etc…

I took pleasure not from instant gratification in buying that new figure, but in the commitment to, and accomplishment of, the goal I set that was to buy said figure.

Save, plan ahead, don't contract debt. I think it's doable.

Even for NEETs. If you're very emotionally unstable, try setting smaller, easier objectives, and work your way up. The hardest part is getting a job. From the shit I've seen, anyone can get a job, no matter how crappy it is. It pays and that's, not all, but, most of what matters. This mindset helped me.

I live near a big city, and people in the city I know don't have cars or licenses because they can just take public transportation everywhere. But if they ever decide to leave the city, they'd have no experience with driving. There are plenty of grown adults who don't know how to drive, but then again, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

The problem with America is that there is no decent public transportation in a lot of suburban or rural areas. Even in big cities, American public transportation is nothing compared to many other countries.

When I went to China, the public transportation was great and I took the subway everywhere.

I alternate between playing/listening to music and choking my chicken for hours on end. I really prefer using music, it really lifts me up and puts me in a better place but when I'm stressed I usually go for the latter option because it's easier. I really wish I could kick the habit, it's time consuming and ends up making me feel worse.

Jaded and ironic detachment coupled with excessive sarcasm and snark along with apathy is a supposedly "cool" [citation needed] and easily-defensible cookie cutter personality type on the internet, especially amongst Extremely Online™ individuals – err, sorry – influencers, or self-proclaimed e-celebs, who think having a couple thousand followers means they're practically Hollywood material.

Can't be put into a vulnerable situation if you're never genuine and give the impression that you dislike everything and don't care.

I'm so cool and edgy, W E W.

Ha, joke's on you, you can't insult me for liking that because I like N O T H I N G and everything I said is a J O K E because I'm afraid to face my R E A L feelings.

I think this kind of facade is a coping mechanism for insecure people (who will vehemently deny their insecurities when confronted about it), maybe wronged or bullied in the past which now makes them tend to be preemptively defensive and use so many layers of irony and post-irony you can't even tell what they mean anymore… maybe they themselves don't even know.

It's actually a good thing if you don't know the kind of people I'm referring to, they're insufferable.

I like to vent my emotions by creating art and music, or just listening to music. However transient, for just a short time I can forget the world around me. Although, I often fall into doldrums due to my overly critical sensibilities towards my own work, especially my drawings.
I also enjoy talking to other people online, but I can never really find anyone to talk to on a daily basis, and whenever I open my heart out to someone there is this feeling of ever-growing distance; I feel I am incapable of making close friends.

I'm glad someone else has noticed this and has put it to words for me. I abhor this type of personality. This seems particularly common within the zeitgeist of board culture. I wish that people could carry more positive and authentic sentiments.

I recently saw this video
https://youtu.be/eh8U6SLvNgs

I realized that I never learned how to play chess. Nobody in my family plays it anymore so I never bothered to learn. But after reading so many amazing stories about this game I really felt urge to learn it and get decent at it.
Couple of days ago I started playing regularly on lichess; I'm still really bad but it has been lots of fun so far.

Do you have any interesting stories about chess? Any tips for beginner like me?

Go is worth looking into too - since there's so many possibilities in any particular board-state there's much less memorizing openings and strategies; it's more about good pattern recognition.

I never really learned to play, but I have this old chess board I bought at a flea market as a teen. The angles on the pieces are so sharp so it's kinda difficult to catch them on picture, looks better IRL.
Figure maybe I should start to learn to get some use out of it.

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.

Wake up early and sleep early.
Waking up early is fantastic, enabling you to be productive, finish what was left behind or just idle about.
Sleeping early on the other hand is the opposite, even if not troublesome most of the time; well, one thing is troublesome and that is somnolence! Specially because it is not perfectly consistent, it attacks as early as 21:00 or as late midnight, drowsiness is very uncooperative.

I usually intend to be in bed, with the lights off, by 11pm. It usually takes me half an hour or so for the thoughts to stop whirring around and the waters of my mind to still. On bad nights I might be up until 1am, having done nothing but lie in the dark.

When I was a teenager I used to stay up a lot longer, especially on weekends. At that time, I was also using the computer a lot more; nowadays I read instead. It's odd how I just cannot conceive what I did all day on my lappy in those days, because I now get bored of browsing fairly quickly.

>falling asleep as the first rays of dawn start peeking in through your blinds
I can't do it, gotta have total darkness, tape over lights on electronics, everything. I used to work nights and had to totally block and insulate my windows to get any sleep.

I work during the day now and wake at 4 on weekdays so I'm not rushed and 6 on weekends so I can sleep in (for me anyway) and still get up early enough to exercise without encroaching on my day or run errands before people get out.

I work the graveyard shift (00-08AM).

I handle it well until ~6:30AM when I start getting a bit tired, sometimes sleepy in case I'm performing easy tasks.

It is easy for me to fall asleep at 9AM, waking up later at 4PM.

It felt weird at the begining, but got used to it in a couple weeks. Honestly, until I graduate and get another job, would not switch to another shift.

I barely buy anything that is not food, but recently I bought Burzum t-shirt - first piece of clothing in like 4 years. Mind you, I am not homeless or dirty - I just treat my stuff well and my style is eternally good.
Anyway, felt nice when I wore it, but quickly I realised that consumerism has started to corrupt me.
I tamed it, I had to stop buying pencils, rubbers, stuff for work, but it was all for my mental wellbeing. I also threw away my desk, couch and all chairs. I could gladly say that unlike filthy casuals 'things' have no impact on me.
Everything was good, 'till yesterday. I got a present.

Consumerism is about buying things you don't know, often to only throw away afterwards whilst then searching for new objects to buy, to 'consume'. Saving money is good, but if you don't even give yourself a bed to sleep, what is the point? Why refuse a bed but keep a computer? Learn to tame your idealogy and keep them realistic instead of being a pushover.

Hello frens.
I want to add a new imageboard to my repertoire. Why should I stay on this board instead of the dozens and dozens of other semi-dead boards out there? I am not even really sure if imageboards are worth it at all right now, since all of them seem to be dying.
Sincerely

 No.5313

File: 1551206045826.jpg (25.77 KB, 400x402, mcx3701.jpg)

I don't think it matters if an imageboard lives for a long time or if it soon will die. I think the transiency of these kinds of sites creates a nice atmosphere, even tho the site might be gone tomorrow, and you'll never see the same kind of posts from those sushi rolls again. It is almost a relief to know that what happens will only be relevant now, and will never become an emotional burden in 10-20 years like my lame posts on phpbb style forums that are still there reminding me of all the flamewars I wasted time on.

I do miss sites like 199xchan, but I don't mind that they died, and there are always new sites to post on. I don't really mind it when a site lose their entire db (like lainchan). Having posted on imageboards for so long, I expect each and every thread to go 404 soon.

Certain sites have totally embraced the transiency and are only open for posting a few times a day, and do complete wipes after a few hours of being open.

Imageboards are always short lived, since threads drop out from the end. If you value shortlivingance that much, you should probably think twice about joining 4chan/b/ again, since it is that quickly, that your post can be lost after minutes (it was like that, when I last visited that site).
You mentioned a few other imageboards. I have one imageboard, which I visit frequently and am looking for a new one. If you visit all that other imageboards (like lainchan), it is quite much time you need to invest in order to enjoy them all. I am not sure if I want this.

I like your approach, sushi. It blows my mind to think of just how alien something that simple has become to me.

I usually try to weigh the options in my decisions and fight my instincts. It's like being a contrarian towards yourself because you always go against your gut and you always reject your first choice.

I'll take a page out of your book for now. Chances are things are at the forefront of my thoughts for good reasons, maybe I should have a little faith in my subconscious.

>Descriptive writing
Reminds me of a passage from Terry Prattchet's Discworld #2 book The Light Fantastic:
"The point is that descriptive writing is very rarely entireliy accurate and during the reign of Olaf
Quimby II is Patrician of Ankh some legislation was passed in a determined attempt to put a stop
to this sort of thing and introduce some honesty into reporting. Thus, if a legend said of a
notable hero that 'all men spoke of his prowess' any bard who valued his life would add hastily
'except for a couple of people in his home village who thought he was a liar, and quite a lot of
other people who had never really heard of him.' Poetic simile was strictly limited to statements
like 'his mighty steed was as fleet as the wind n a fairly calm day, say about Force Three,' and
any loose talk about a beloved having a face that launched a thousand ships would have to be
backed by evidence that the object of desire did indeed look like a bottle of champagne. "

Don't be afraid to let your reader's imagination and/or autism spectrum disorder do the work for you! You can get way more flavor out of mere voice than you can imagery so why not let the reader have some fun with the details? There's only so many things that you can compare weak legs to but there's all kinds of different people who could try to describe the same thing:

>Billie's shit is fucked all the fuck to hell and she should probably see a doctor regarding said fuckedness at sometime within the near future.


>Billie is looking like a 200lb. bag of oof and she's walking like one, too.


>Literally everything about Billie is currently either gross, pathetic or all of the above. It's hysterical.


Treat your story like a conversation. How people respond to you affects how they respond to what you have to say. Your personality is just another tool of communication and it takes an engaging narrator to relay an engaging narrative.
