A social worker. My main job is to help teens and young adults who are full NEETs, like try find education or job that fits them and get them back on their feet. Some are so isolated they haven't got out of their house but they want to so I help them with that and try to get them to treatment if it's necessary.
Also volunteering at animal shelter when I have time, mostly abandoned cats there. I also go to the horse stable nearby and help around like clean up, take care of the horses and ride them. But that's more hobby.
I'm content with the current situation but I think I want to become a class teacher. I don't think most people have social worker as their #1 dream career but somehow people end up doing it.
>>5478423 I originally went into communications. Got a girlfriend who was deep into feminism so I drank the punch with her. Cut off most my hair, started screaming at white cis dudes, I blamed all my problems on patriarchy and male privilege.
I work at a petsmart. i do cashiering and shit, but more importantly, i also work with all the reptiles/fish/birds/rodents. i'm rapidly learning a ton of encyclopedic knowledge about a ton of animals, and actively learning that petsmart's policies are sometimes pretty dickish to the animals
>>5478486 oh, right. dreams. i defs don't wanna climb the petsmart corporate ladder.
i'm lazily studying for the GRE at some point this year, in the hopes of getting into a master's program for counseling. partially cause i wanna help legbutts, ofc, but also i seem to have a knack for empathy
>>5478493 I can't speak for other stores, but we defs don't do that. We just keep the animals there in perpetuity or just adopt it out if it gets too big. We've had this $600 conure [way overpriced] that we're never ever gonna sell, but he's basically just become a mainstay of the store itself. Now fish? Yeah. You can find all the fish corpses you ever wanted in petsmart's trash, but even animals that die in store or are returned to us dead are supposed to be bagged up and stored in a freezer as evidence for a certain amount of time. I guess eventually they wind up in the dumpster, but it wouldn't be like the fucking killing fields
>>5478423 Women's studies and sociology. I do believe I win.
>i don't regret either. a bachelor's degree doesn't count for shit in any field i'm interested in, so i took shit that would help expand my understanding of a lot of issues that'd come up in counseling
I'm in college but not sure what I'm doing yet. Was thinking about math+philosophy but finally came to terms with the fact that I'll never be naturally good at math and also won't put in the monumental effort. The only thing I'm really good at is, like, reading (according to bullshit standardized tests throughout my life) and I'm decent at writing, so working at a publishing company sounds nice. It seems pretty specific and might be difficult to get a job in that, though. I've also been interested in architecture, but that's also extremely specific and a lot of years of school.
>>5477931 I work in a small cafe in order to pay bills and I'm in college for civil engineering. Idk what my ideal job would be, but I just want to end up with a nice husband, raise a family and get a small sports car.
i'm a dentist, i don't have my own practice yet though. i'm working on a dental lab atm, and i've been working on a friend's practice on her days off. my dream would be to have my own office and to be mildly successful although it gets a bit lonely when you are on your own so idk anymore.
>>5478018 How do I go about finding somebody like you? I'm a college drop out NEET, worked for a couple years for my dad, then he got cancer and I was taking care of him for several years, it gradually became worse until it was terminal; he just died this past october
I'm on the fence about whether I want to try and start over or if I should just finish up helping mom with the estate and so on, and then quietly off myself (I have everything planned out, I have the medical knowledge and the means to guarantee it)
I was a NEET for a long time after graduating university. Then I got a job after parents pulled some strings with a friends. It's a shitty job: dead-end, badly-paid. I hate it. I want to quit every single day. But no place where I actually want to work even considers me
I'm nowhere close enough to moving out: I'm never going to achieve anything. I have no friends, so no network, either. I'm still using professors and supervisors from college internships as my references.
Currently work at a bird store. I take care of all of the birds, from conures and cockatiels to amazons and macaws. I also hand raise our babies and help them with learning to fly when the time comes. I then socialize them to get them used to humans so they can be sold to new families. I have my own bird as well, she's a little cockatiel. Great job, though I only make $8.50 an hour.
Currently studying Aviation in college, probably going to branch it out to Aviation Engineering or Management. I also have my private pilot's license, and plan to start obtaining all of the other additions I need so I can be certified for working in air transport. Needless to say, I want to work in aviation, preferably as a pilot.
Don't have a boyfriend, but I'm putting myself out there so I hope to find someone soon. Long-time goal is to have a husband and kids.
Short-time goals would probably be learning to properly cook, lose my virginity, and get into a great relationship.
>>5480175 Currently work about 30 hours a week on top of school, so I make enough to fly at least once a week. My training fee covers the single-engined plane, fuel, and lesson, and it's *only* $175 per hour ($145 when I fly solo). It goes a bit slower, but it is rewarding. My advice is to NOT go to a prepaid program, but rather an instructor. It'll be way cheaper down the road.
What kind of work do you do? 100k salary sounds perfectly doable for you, unless you have a spending issue.
>>5477931 Grocery store butcher. Not very glamorous bur pays really good and I get to have my own radio. Have a beautiful, kind, and intelligent vegetarian boyfriend who is cool with me too, so life isn't too bad. My dream is to do this forever. Maybe draw more, write music or something. Read more comic books. Whatever.
>>5477931 I'm a software engineer (back-end developer). >>5479711 I used to work for a huge company like that, supposed to be the best place to work, I hated it, now I work for a company that was acquired by a huge company like that, hopefully it never gets infected by the culture.
Was almost homeless and had some friends move me and my boyfriend into their big ass house, I have two months to find a job within biking distance or I'll have to find somewhere else to live. This place is soooo comfy though, I'll wash dishes if I have to.
>gay >university >becomming a lawyer, fairly good at it >leech off parents Since I've always been the most boring person you could know I got quite a bit of money saved up. Not enough for a flat or a car or anything similar, but I got a couple of thousands from birthdays and the likes (because I saved money from the age of six), so I get to enjoy my new explored dating life while having no job. Felt a bit awkward to tell this guy, that I didn't have a job when he earns ~5 grands the month. Luckily enough he is pretty humble and accepts, that I'm 20 and still dependent on my parents.
>>5481909 >be cute af >be kind and humble >not be a gold digger wealthy people can most of the time instantly identify the gold diggers, if you don't care about their money, chance of them spoiling you are bigger. this or get with some chubby guy or shy twink who is successful in school.
>>5480830 I enjoy it. It gives a lot of freedom to do what you want how you want that I don't think I'd find in a lot of other places. Also the organization's kind-of flat, and if you mess up, the reaction's more of 'ok, how will you fix it' rather than 'pack your things and get out'.
I'm an art student who does shitty web commissions and (one set of) children's book illustrations to support my peddling my Emotions to the world. I'm actually good, dedicated and versatile, but I'm also a fuking mess hence the board. If it doesn't work out I guess I'm doing retail for life.
>>5479743 You're a good person taking care of your father like that. I wish I could get over my issues with my parents to actually give back to them for what they didn't fuck up. I hope I can.
Honestly I want every depressed and compassionate neet in the world to pull through (whatever that means). I absolutely get not wanting to be here, but I'm not going anywhere so don't you leave me alone in this shithole.
I worked as a secretary for a couple years after graduating from high school and then had a job refurbishing Motorola devices. I got fired from that latter job when I accidentally outed myself as trans in 2011. I haven't had a real job since then.
I cam to pay for my food and necessities but I have no idea what I'm doing with my life or how to fix it. I'm 25 now and I feel like nobody will hire me. I never applied for benefits so I can't even get my non existent case worker to vouch for my mental illness.
I have severe social anxiety and untreated bipolar disorder that makes it difficult to go outside, let alone interact with real human beings. I want to be normal and go to university and get a job doing something I enjoy but I don't know where to start getting help.
I'm a cable monkey. Not at all related to my college degree, but it doesn't bother me in the slightest because I loved the hell out of studying for my degree, I love this job, and I get paid rather decently. I have my own place, total independence, and I don't hate waking up in the morning. So life's already the best it's ever been for me. Maybe if my cards fall into place right then I can end up buying a house somewhere up north, settle down with a nice qt and raise a little family with her.
I'm going to uni next year, majoring in physics. I've got a fuckload of electives, so doing some electrical engineering and geology too.
Hoping to go to grad school, get my PhD, and either work as a prof or in the industry. Not sure what my specialization's going to be yet, either something to do with nuclear, astro, or somethingsomethingcircuits (don't know if that's a real thing).
oh also >leeching off parents (as long as i'm in school i don't have to pay for anything) >gay but no social life because science
I'm an adult just getting out of high school looking at college. I think I'll study art and computer sciences. I dream to be a video game designer. Ideally, I'd be well known video game creator on the indie scene with many fun, well known games, worlds, and characters behind my belt.
Working as an auditor. Really stressful job and I think I would be happier being a farmer, something to do in nature.
When it gets really stressful after 70 hours week I often wonder if its even worth it and dont want to wake up. But when I see how I can support my family and girlfriend I know it is worth it. Dream is to be just happy and dont get depressed
>that fucking picture ...Anyway, I am studying Animation, and I work part time at a Coney Island Restaurant. Ideal job would be to animate, and get paid the median pay for animators in the US, which is ~$60,000. The Ideal life would be to have my own series of animations and be completely self employed, instead of hopping from company to company, doing their cartoon dirty work. Dream is to be good enough to start my own animation studio/office, and hire other animators. Get a business going.
>>5477931 >What do you legbutts do for a living? Division of child support, it's basically hell >Are you in college? Graduated in 2012 >What are you studying? Philosophy, hahaha >Ideal job? None, i hate work >Ideal life? Rich, like trust fund rich, or five a rich older lady to take care of me >Dreams? That I either get rich doing nothing or finally work up the courage to kill myself after a few more years of this garbage
>What do you legbutts do for a living? i'm mtf, and i'm a camgirl. >Are you in college? not yettt. >What are you studying? dick i guess idk. >Ideal job? honestly i'm not sure. prob something in IT tho tbqh. if i could integrate my love for aesthetics into IT i would be in heaven. >Ideal life? i make about 4-5k a month now, but i'll be making 7-10k if i work on two sites like i'm supposed to be doing...and i want to use that money to get everything i need to function in a healthy way. yknow, i just want to have good friends, and a nice boyfriend, and a life, really. right now i basically just make money and...that's it. >Dreams? currently my dreams consist of just getting FFS, moving to Portland, general traveling, maybe buying a house, and one day maaaybe having kids. i want to have a normal job and actually wake up excited each day for something even if it's not work. i'd also like to open a non-profit for trans people that helps with aesthetic things that make living full-time easier, and that can help provide housing and HRT etc... but i won't be able to do that for at least another 10 years.
>>5477931 Currently studying biology/general education. Ideal job would be physician's assistant (I'm detail oriented, have a good memory, and like diagnosing people and things. Plus if I can't make it to PA I can use the education to get something else in medicine). Ideal life would be one where I play table top rpgs on weekends with boy friend in an apartment or house I own. Being stable and mature enough to give back to society has been my lifelong dream that I keep falling short of.
I'd include kids in my life goals and dreams, but I'd be a terrible father. And if I ever got enough paternal instincts together to want to have kids then I would never want to subject someone I love to being raised by me or being burdened with my shitty genes.
Right now I'm getting my Ph.D in physics and doing some required teaching assistant stuff. Ideally, I want to work as a data analyst at a newspaper or vidya company or something I have no moral issues with (i.e. credit card companies, pharmaceuticals) after I'm outta school. Or maybe teach middle- or high school. Ideal life, let's see... I want to make enough money so my mom can retire and do whatever she wants. A brownstone in Manhattan or an apartment near Coney Island ('cause I live near there now and love it) that's bigger than my current one. A garden or at least some outdoor space for plants. A couple cats. A girlfriend. Time to draw and make clothes. My dream...? Eventually have enough money saved up to do art full-time; and also to make sure my mom and brother and girlfriend will never have to worry about money, 'cause it can't buy happiness but it can at least give some security.
>>5477931 I pretend to go to college to please my parents but I'm a musician. Recently my band played a nearly sold out venue. I still hate living because I can't be myself. I plan on hanging myself when I turn 27 (4 more years).
Graduated. Looking for jobs in game programming/design. Probably about to land one. >Ideal job Pretty much what I'm doing now, albeit with a more authoritative position, at a more interesting studio, or succeeding at indie >Ideal life/dreams Living in a liberal metropolitan area (SF?) or suburb. Successful transition, raising a daughter.
