What helps you relax or calm down?

Over the years I've noticed that no matter how distressed or anxious I am as soon as I just sit down under the Sun for a while and listen to some instrumental music consciously I get calm enough to think clearly or even take a nap. And removing shoes is a must to reach peak comfiness for me.

What about you sushis?

Alcohol. Usually lots of beer or a couple of simple strong cocktails.
Music. Heavy and black metal, jazz, city pop or classical. Just putting the headphones on and listening.
Reading or watching anime doesn't help me. I get distracted very easy, which pedals the distress and anxiety. Especially phone calls, my God, I hate mobile phones. Maybe this is the reason why I've been watching less and less anime over the recent years.
Holding nice things in hands. You know. I love simple and sturdy things that were made to last, especially if they are old and used. I have a couple of them: zippo lighter, an old metal sony e-reader, a metal parker pen (of the cheaper ones, but still). I dream about finding an old sony walkman for a reasonable price - The Walkman, one of the first metal body models - and collecting cassettes. And installing a cassette deck in a car (when I'll get one) instead of a modern usb-stick one. Imagine that.


There are a few things that relax me but for some reason its hard for me to actually do do them even when I know I'd like to. I like going outside for walks, I like laying in bed, I like drawing and these are all helpful when I'm stressed but I'm too addicted to my computer. I'll go for a walk and think to myself 'this is really nice, I should do this more often' but I never do! One thing I do regularly is cook. It basically forces me to get up and move around for half an hour and I even get a treat out of it.


File: 1590011686085.jpg (81.59 KB, 850x1154, __hatoba_tsugu_hatoba_tsug….jpg)

Hey, that's what I feel too. It's like "I know I'd be calmed if I took this game I wanted to check out for a long time", but find it hard to even run it in first place. Or go for a walk, totally.

No idea about cooking. I like it, but also have to do it anyway or I'll starve.


Mindfulness meditation, cocktails, and cooking for sure.

Something about the process of considering different layers of tastes and textures when deciding what ingredients to use. It's really engrossing, and then you get the payoff at the end when you can enjoy a well-made drink/meal.


Meditating: I quit drinking ten years ago and stopped smoking weed a year ago after I mastered my meditation skills.

Nowadays when I'm stressed, I automatically switch to watching my breath and trying to make it more comfortable. Learning how not to cling onto anxious or just heavy thoughts makes a huge difference.

I am a chronic lurker of image boards, when I first started visiting them over 10 years ago I took to heart the saying lurk more but now 10 years later I still am just a lurcker I do post very very rairly, I'd like to become a regular poster but know myself well enough that I probably never will.

4chan is a pretty bad place to try to have a real or meaningful conversation, sadly.


File: 1590236370011.png (1.5 MB, 2018x1345, __shima_rin_yurucamp_drawn….png)

See, you've made a second interesting post in a row. It's just 4chan and places like these skewing your perspective of things.
It is true your post will sometimes not get replied to, but there's still a bigger chance of it happening on "slow"/comfy boards.

>reddit spacing

I probably do the same, for readability (and because it comes from Markdown, which I actively use at work, so I'm used to it). I have never even used reddit, but would be accused of doing so anyway.
But yeah, people on 4chan will often jump on you for that. Yet another way to make you feel "dumb".

>i know you probably typed something very interesting, but since nobody replied to you, i'm not reading it.

Now that's harsh… It's like it's only (You)'s that count there.
I often wonder why is it that most places nowadays don't care for valuable conversation? Sometimes when I join some public place I find out that a day of it functioning makes about the amount of content that one *post* on Sushichan has.

Fate has some great character designs and high quality figurines, obviously… I love the detail, especially on the dress.

How about making a thread on the newly created /otaku/ if you feel like it? I don't know much about figurines, but I'd probably want to look at them at least.

I feel bad for being that guy who doesn't post anything interesting but I'm just going to say that Semiramis is hella fucking hot, that Apocrypha was shit, and that the lack of good porn or even fanart of Semiramis is a cardinal sin


File: 1590255243186.jpg (169.27 KB, 900x1273, __makinami_mari_illustriou….jpg)

When I see Fate's character designs, I sometimes regret not being into it. Not to mention the anime series are usually well made, too.


File: 1590258179095.jpg (274.88 KB, 993x1021, 1489804226115.jpg)

>well made
High production values, maybe. Or really, no, it was pretty much just Zero and UBW with the production values. Apocrypha, Last Encore, and Babylonia were all pretty garbage both budgetwise and plotwise. Cute girls though.

I wish I had an interesting hobby or skill that allowed me to create cool stuff. Everyone I speak to online has one, even people much younger than me, and it honestly makes me jealous. I wasted my whole life passively consuming media


Turn off your PC and do some stuff then.


Begin the soul-searching journey that begins with asking "what do I want to do?"


No, this is not good advice.
It will lead to you just procrastinating more. Always running in circles.
Just do something. Doesn't really matter what.


That happens when you answer that question and then ask yourself the question that logically follows:
"how do I do what I want to do?"

This is the the real obstacle. If this question isn't answered (or worse, not answered properly) then you will ask yourself "why do I want to do this?"

You let go when you forget yourself.


You sound a lot like me, and it's one of my biggest insecurities. To be honest it affects my ability to even form relationships with people because I feel so passionless next to them. But it's good to at least realize this so you can start trying to "get out there" so to speak and try some new things. I've been trying to do just that myself.

how have you sushis been adapting to online college? for me it's hard to focus because all I want to do is watch anime and play games all day, and then I end up staying up until 6am and not getting enough sleep for zoom class.

Me to, cant focus, keep barley turning things in on time and asking for extensions, thank goodness this semester is done for me, im going to take just a couple of low key classes this summer and just take things real slow and easy.


I'm finishing undergrad as a music student, and this semester's been absurd. I crammed a bunch of instruments in my apartment and did my entire senior recital live online. I hope that we manage to get back to real life by the end of the year, I don't want to start grad school with no live music.

My computer is very old and it's constantly in danger of overheating whenever teachers decide to use webcams or share their screen. Thankfully I already know mostly everything they're teaching so I can afford to block all video sharing. Otherwise, this is the kind of feature I always wished existed. No wasted time commuting, classes in the comfort of my home!


File: 1589905788214.gif (63.49 KB, 220x213, sssdf.gif)

It was rough at first, but due to site blockers+self help books.

Main tough spot is my power shut of and came back for as second out of the blue 10 minutes before my online final. I don't know what caused this, but I'm hoping it doesn't happen again


>No wasted time commuting, classes in the comfort of my home!
This is the best part for me, I never truly realized how much time I wasted commuting and just waiting in campus for the next class.

What are your coping methods?
I browse through various internet message boards posting my sadness away. It's becoming very unhealthy but it's my only cope my only friend. Music also helps me a lot with coping.

Get off reality for some time, maybe marathon an anine or something, try to compose the sadness into music, cry a little, think where i fucked up, improve, aim for bigger fish, repeat


I got a daki recently for that extra bit of depressive comfort. It's really nice, honestly.

Oh, how many times I tried to reproduce these animation techniques on flipnote. Never managed to make anything good, though.
… and I finally understand all those character references now. Huh.


Technically right at the start of 2010, but I remember seeing this a few months after it came out, when I was 6 years old. It blew my mind at the time, despite not understanding anything outside of the fact it's a custom Mario level.


that was incredible op, thank you.

Have you ever looked at other people in your age group and thought to yourself, 'what's wrong with me?'
Oh how I wish to be a kid again.
19 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


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.


File: 1588920723607.jpg (80.74 KB, 960x1020, truxphmtapm41.jpg)

I'm 19 and I just look at all the other people my age in college and I can't seem to pinpoint why I am still a loner. I do talk to some people but we only talk about school.

Recently, we decided to share our instagrams and just looking at their feeds made me depressed. They can easily take pictures of themselves, they post about going to places with friends, post about their families, yes the last picture I put on my instagram was from 3 years ago…

I have no true friends and the one that I actually considered my friend, doesn't talk to me anymore because we just grew apart because life.

I don't have anyone and all I do is browse the internet. I have no hobbies, I don't play video games, I don't play any instruments, I don't play sports, I don't talk to anyone, I don't go out, I don't do anything. Everyday I think about how much I hate living. In fact, I think that's my hobby because that's all I do. I've never had any passion for anything. Even my major sucks. I won't be able to do anything with it.

I just don't know what went wrong with me. Everything I do brings me misery at this point. Why can't I be like everyone else?


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.

try coward hour. its my favorite.


Graveyard tales is 2 old guys shit talking paranormal and conspiracy stuff.

Jim Harold's camp fire is call in ghost stories which is comfy too.



Charliebo313 just drives around cities, especially rough areas. Weirdly soothing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfzPtMWhcTU


I have a few car related channels that I find particularly comfy. I really enjoy watching people put so much love into their cars, just working on em and driving about.

M359 restorations: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLLpxcworT8275nBXODXyqw
This guy will get on plane to inspect and buy a car, take some footage of his mini-holiday, then go back home to Germany and fix the car to sell on. I'm not super into BMWs, but the format is way more comfy and personal than the high production stuff that lots of channels already put out, and his love for the cars and attention to detail in the repairs is really nice to watch.

runningfree86: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeT4OKP6HEXFzb-YrMi4Mrw
An OG Japanese drifter, and probably one of the best AE86 drivers around today. He has lots of videos of working on the car with his young daughter, who's probably gonna grow up to be the greatest AE86 mechanic in the world. He's recently started uploading vids with english subs which is nice, but even watching his driving is incredible, he has such a graceful old school style comapared to the loud, big power, big slides style that's popular nowadays.

Noriyaro and heymanrobbie: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZGkMJEmCR1IqUduqt1uFUw, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4SuAwedzsMx57p7yfceokQ
These two are more driving/drifting focused, but watching them go about about Japan and get footage of all the different car stuff people do is great.

My lil MX-5 (>>5295) is still going strong, but with finishing at Uni and looking to starting work, I've been dreaming of a Volvo V70R as a main car. Loads of room for putting stuff, quirky 5 cyl engine with power and 4wd, a solid chassis setup, comfy, it's the ideal roadtrip/commuting machine (save for the terrible MPG).

Ganbaru sushi, few moments in my life have felt better than being 17 and driving out of the test center with my own car and license, free to drive wherever I wanted. I really love those 3rd-4th gen Civics, although I've never driven one, especially the 4wd wagon ones. Weird but cool.

2009 Hyundai Accent. Cheap and pretty boring, but it handles really well and can fit in relatively narrow parking spots. I really love my car.

What are physical features you pay the most attention to?

From time to time I have these dreams that are about a girl. Female from last dream was small-faced, had very straight black hair of medium length. She quoted polish alternative superhero movie from 1970 and we were helping each other in math.

The thing that you have to talk to girls to get a gf is the most retarded feature of this world.


Having to talk to girls is a retarded feature? You mean having to treat them like human beings? I’m not following that line of thought.


I was just referring to this meme.


Fair enough, my bad :)

Hairs are important, I'm personally a fan of bangs, it's really cute on a girl. An ass slightly on the thicc side is a plus. I don't pay a lot attention to breasts.
