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.
Cyberpunk 2077 t-shirt. New, original, reserved only for developer team.

Yeah, pretty much I got that original Cyberpunk Team t-shirt and just wanted to brag.
And since my english is still just a hot pile of trash, I decided to write ministory as an exercise.
I call it success if y'all believed it.

I had the Burzum shirt that had varg on the back with the medieval cosplay knives in his bedroom on the back. I outgrew it I've gotten fat in my 20's cause I only buy food as well. I don't like burzum and black metal either.

I don't really have a problem with spending money when it's abundant, but i remember sometimes during college when my family was being harsh about money so I would mostly intermitently fast and eat mostly noodles. I'd gain weight again when travelled back home so I had stored fat to lose and supplement with vitamin pills and omega 3 pills lol. In the end I used most of this money on travels to see webfriends.
Also, for months i could only take cold showers, but it was because my roommate was supposed to buy the shower and the asshole would knock the neighbors house to take hot bath there instead, e v e r y morning. It became quite a fight with time. Honestly fuck that guy, terrible and lazy swindler.

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?

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.

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.

 No.7799

As I've gotten older I've gradually lost the anxiety and fear of missing out if I'm not constantly on the computer. Also got rid of browser bookmarks so I don't default to mindless browsing.

When I feel like I'm defaulting I just get up and take a walk or start sewing. I find myself wandering outside more now that I bought a camera.

I've got unlimited motivation and passion inside of me, I just feel like it's been permanently held inside of me, meaning all my motivation creates is scenarios in my head where I went through with the action. I have a lot planned but my god I can't get out of the rut that is procrastination

 No.6557

I used to wake up a couple of minutes before my alarm. When I then dozed off again I dreamed about getting up and starting my day. Once my alarm actually signaled me it's time to get out of bed, I had to go through all of that again, even though I thought I already had that behind me.

This taught me how to start doing things.

 No.6558

I channel that all into writing. Then, the next day, I act on my vision, having already clarified it in writing.

First comes a vague feeling.
Second comes the refinement of that feeling into a plan.
Third comes the action, bringing that plan into reality.

Sometimes I get stuck on acting. When that happens, I go back to refinement. If I get stuck on refinement, I revisit the original vague feeling.

The feeling is the why.
The plan is the how.
The action is the what.

If you feel very motivated, but you haven't decided on the direction, throw something at the wall. Keep throwing random ideas at the wall until you find one that lets you get to the next step.

I like to think of it like navigating a maze in the dark. You can only move forward until you hit a wall. Once you hit that wall, you can go back to where you started, or you can move along the wall, hoping that there will be another path that leads you where you want to go.

What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
I find that one of the best ways to do both consistently is training yourself in martial arts. An good starting point for learning shaolin kung fu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f8zb_QKZEo .

One of the ways I train mentally is by doing regular meditation. If you are new to meditaion and don't know what style to pick, start with Zazen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL2XUTeoUsM (turn on captions). Some other techniques that I like are detailed here: https://tricycle.org/magazine/tibetan-buddhist-meditation/ .
I think it's important to learn to feel what the chinese call qi. That does not mean you have to become religious or convince yourself that it is anything more than a phychological phenominon, but the reason I think it's important is that it can be used to reach a meditative state even when going about your daily activities. I'm not an expert, but I think a good method is to sit or lie in a position that allows you to breath with your stomach (make sure to remove constraints like belts), close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths with your stomach. As you breath in, imagine energy slowly rising from the base of your spine to the top of your scalp, and as you slowly breath out imagine that energy sinking from your scalp back down to the base of your spine.

I used to love lifting. I did a low volume near daily routine for a while and got burnt out because I just don't have the frame to gain mass. Right now I'm thinking about switching to a carnivore diet, with minimal veggies at first and a switch to mostly bodyweight exercise with the goal of getting leaner but staying more or less the same weight. The hardest part of all of this is quitting drinking.

i haven't been doing it lately, but i find that mediatating for at least 15-30 minutes a day keeps my mind at easy. also keeping a morning and night routine helps me feel more structured.

>>8630
Important to acknowledge that this IS a bad life. Living in dissociation and alienation and apathy is very, very far from the experience of reality we evolved for. It might not feel intense, maybe in this way of life we have no point of reference for how reality should feel, I don't know, but it absolutely is intense and you deserve a GOOD life instead of a "neutral" one.

Hi all, we've put together a realtime imageboard intended to capture 4chan's comfy 2005-06 character:

Realtime means you can see every letter as it's being typed. Pretty fun, and creates a brisk pace of discussion that makes it feel almost like an imageboard-irc. See you there~

I was actually thinking of starting a nerd house of some sorts sometime early next year. Not nerd in the sense of vidya, anime, gaming etc, but really smart people, and creators. I figure we'll be able to come up with all kinds of cool projects, and ideas living together. And it'll force me to be less withdrawn, as it tends to happen whenever things get stagnant. I'm a bit nervous about the idea of having roommates in my first house but at least I'll be bringing in rent money.

That sounds like a good idea, IF they're people you actually know well and get along with already. That's the difference between a happy and (for lack of a better word) productive home and a den of fucktards who answered the ad for "Wanted: really smart people" filled with social politics.

I have read the weird stories above, and yeah. I neglect my things because I don't value them, and I don't value them because they don't have value objectively. Everyone thinks "no that's not enough, you need more, that's a pile of garbage". I'm not going to waste time on mantaining garbage. I don't care about myself either, really. Everything around me can rot and I will let it
