Do you have any plans for today sushis?
Or if you're reading this later: Did you have a good day?

I'm pretty excited for today. Going to finish work on a project and add some new plants to my greenhouse while I still can.

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 I don't know anybody in person who has withdrawn from a degree so it really felt like I was being left behind by all my peers (especially my sister, who is incredibly successful).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

>Has anyone here dropped out of collage or university?
Yes actually.
>Was it a good decision?
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.
>>11486
>I've dropped out of law
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.

 No.11653

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.
If you can and want please share this post to communities which you think might me knowledgeable.

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.

I feel I am because though things are finalized I can't move on to see others because of this lockdown and to make matters worse my city is slowly going bankrupt - 60% of business here has now closed permanently. My cities population is small and now it will get smaller, its harder still to get into a relationship the older you get…it's like watching myself dig my own grave.

These have all made me a lot more productive with relatively little effort. Getting a proper 8 hours of sleep every night also helps a lot.

For creative work, I've found that going to art exhibitions, reading magical realist fiction, and keeping a dream journal all help me think more laterally and less linearly.

Caffeine is a big trade-off in my experience: it makes me more productive when doing menial work, but makes me a lot less creative.

 No.4598

>>4594

I've found that you typically have creative work that creates menial work. First, you create the plan. Then, you do the work to finish the plan. Figuring out when you are good at each helps you remove stress by avoiding feeling guilty that you aren't doing creativity well when you should be focusing on menial work and vice versa.

I have also seen that creative work motivates menial work. Too much menial work makes you feel sad and like you have lost track of why you are doing it in the first place. Doing too much creative work upfront might cause you to get stuck at 90% until you can find a way to be creative again.

Of course, when you get stuck in a negative thought spiral, all work suffers. Creative work helps you feel your way out of it in my experience.
