What is an easy, non-expensive yet practical skill to learn?
I'm a 23 year old weeaboo autistic loser with no passions or interests other than anime and video games, I was thinking of picking up a skill and trying to learn it but nothing interest me so I guess I'll just have to try multiple things till I find one that I like.
Also don't suggest coding/programming, I tried it and it wasn't for me.
It's good that you're looking for productive interests, once you get into something you'll be very grateful later.
Before giving up on programming, have you tried making games? Just download Unity and follow some tutorials then try making something on your own. It can be very fun.
Otherwise I can suggest making music. As a start you can just pirate FL Studio (I know this is a meme, but memes exist for a reason). Then I guess start looking for some tutorials on YouTube. Composing music can have a pretty rocky start in the beginning, but once you get over those first few months you can start enjoying it. You can make house music, hip hop, orchestral, chiptune whatever you like.
If you've got any questions you can ask them in the AGDG general over at /vg/.
Hobbies saved me from this place.
I'm already learning German at my Uni
I tried it and wasn't any good at it, also my Uni has a MTG club but everyone there has been playing for a long time and invested a lot of money. I'd rather duel against novices like myself and sadly I couldn't find any, it's discouraging to find against people who have played and sink a lot of money into the game for a long time.
I also feel like MTG is expensive just like any other TCG, I'd have to sink money into boosters packs, also I wouldn't even know what deck combinations are considered strange. I know different color combinations produce different effects and I could look up deck build ideas online, but I just don't want to get pulled into MTG and spend $50 or $100 dollars on boosters packs and shit. If I could find some beginners like myself I might enjoy playing it since it feels like it'd be more fair compared to dueling someone who knows exactly how to play and what they are doing, I understand the basics and how to play but my point is that dueling someone new like myself just makes me feel like I accomplished something if I win because we were both at the same level.
Eh I never really thought about making music, it's not really my thing. I suppose I can try it but the initial idea isn't doing anything for me, thanks for the suggestion and information though.
Damn anon didn't need to rub it in
Programming is extremely practical and also completely free to learn.
There is an extreme abundance of resources out there to learn how to program. There are even cool, fluffy interactive tutorials with badges and achievements and everything. For everything from beginner stuff to the most advanced. No reason not to learn it other than a lack of motivation.
MTG is also completely free, so finances isn't really an excuse. You can proxy whatever the fuck you want with blank/garbage cards and a sharpie, or you can do what a lot of people do and just print your cards out.
>not drawing your own cards
it's like you want people to think you're a casual
>At a dorm
I'm kind of a fat lazy fuck so not sure if I want to do something outside that requires physical effort on my part.
This is a joke, right? Are you telling me people seriously use drawn cards when they duel people? Isn't that against the rules?
How the fuck do I print out my own cards or proxy them? I've never heard of such a thing, everyone I know spends actual money on their cards.

Alright look you got me, I failed Comp Sci 101 at my university, alright? There I said it, are you happy now?
We were learning Java and I could make simple programs and I found it fun and interesting but when it comes to exams I pretty much bombed them because we had to make programs from scratch, usually my professor gave us instructions on how to start an assignment but I could never build something from scratch.
Look I just don't want to mess with coding and programming, I agree it's a fun, practical and non-expensive hobby but it isn't for everyone.
I'd rather not rent an instrument, If I'm going to learn an instrument I'd rather just buy one and I'm not committed enough to learn how to play one because I never had interest in learning one before plus I can't afford it.
>Telling me to get social skills
Calling the kettle black there, anon? I'd bet money I have better social skills than you.
If you're a guy and into animu and vidya, just delve into cosplay and learn makeup skills, buy some basic shit to get you starting.
That is, if you're attractive enough after makeup. It's amazing what makeup can do and you might get fangirls in cons
Yeah but you have to buy photoshop
I enjoy plants and flowers, I wouldn't mind growing my own and keeping them in my room or something but not sure if we can do that at my Uni in a dorm room.
Also they wouldn't get a lot of sunlight, I'd have to buy like plants that can be grown indoors or require little sunlight.
I've gone to about 5 or 6 conventions so far and I have done cosplay, I cosplayed Edward Elric from FMA with the wig, outfit and everything and got a lot of compliments and pictures taken of me but sadly I outgrew my cosplay and had to sell it.
I haven't thought about who else I could do a good cosplay of, also I usually just buy the outfits off Ebay or Amazon.
Cosplay guy here. Never settle until you have qt 3.14s squealing at you and ask for selfies and shit.
Check out reverse harem shows, uta no prince for example, brilliant cosplay material, especially if you can sing their songs.
You don't need to spend a penny to get the software you need, and there is an endless amount of free videos and websites to learn everything you need.
Been going to university for 3 years, honestly haven't learned a single thing from my professors. I just browse memes do assignments for other courses during class.
I've learned everything and more that my professors have taught me in 6 semesters from googling and youtubing. Also making cool shit on your computer is fun.
>he bombed a 100 paper in anything
Lel. But real talk buy a cheap common instrument of your choosing and play weeb music, there's plenty of sheet music online and it'll only take a few weeks for you to play recognizable stuff. What do you like?
>I failed Comp Sci 101 at my university
how do you operate a computer when you're literally this retarded
Yeah with Unity, programming 'clicked' for me. Actually being able to see my work come to life.
Anyways, give dollar bill origami a shot, it's a fun thing to know if you go to a restaurant.
Damn OP you really sound like an ungrateful faggot. Literally every suggestion you've come up with some dumb bullshit excuse for why you don't want to do it and just expect to be spoonfed more.
Of course all the suggestions are programming what other useful skill can you learn well with no human interaction.
Maybe you should stop asking for people to spoonfeed when you haven't considered a single suggestion.
