The idea of working 40 hours a week makes me want to blow my brains all over the ceiling. The idea of being a useless neet makes me want to blow my brains all over the ceiling. Is there another way?

not really, no. You can if you have 1-3 roommates living with you in order to offset rent/energy expenses.
But living on your own and working 25-30ish hours a week is going to be very tough even if you're making above minimum wage.
Once you get up to 40 hours on minimum wage it's still hard but manageable if you're good with your money.

I used to live in the hood sharing a tiny room and working in a warehouse 2-3 days a week which barely paid my rent and money for corner store tall boys. For entertainment I would play my housemates PS3 (my first introduction to souls) and drink and play chess with my neighbors.
So yes. That is the way. Now I'm a NEET who lives with my mom again tho.
25/week is the sweet spot. Enough to get by if you live reasonably and can get a little more than minimum wage, but not enough that you literally feel the life being sucked out of you like at a 9-5. Unless you're working at an actual, real life small business (many "small businesses" aren't actually that small) if you work full time you're often just subsidizing someone at the top working a few hours a week. And most small businesses are better off hiring more people for shorter shifts anyway, the quality of work is better and there are tax benefits for them.
That's all out the window if you ever have a kid though, if you have a kid you've got to resign yourself to a couple decades of hard wageslavery to support them, that's the price of being a responsible parent.
Or get two part time jobs, you'll still be spending most of your life working but it will be less monotonous and you can always BTFO one of the jobs without losing your whole income.
If you really don't want to have to do the grind the only way out is either to get an inheritance, win the lottery, or eventually get your own business to have others work for you.
There's a bunch of insurance places that do stuff like that. They train you and help you start another branch of their insurance company in another location. Then eventually if you do good enough you can hire your own people.
I feel your pain anon. I had/still have the same thoughts. To make matters worse, even if we managed to get friends one day, they'd all be preoccupied between their 9-5 jobs, families, spouses, and kids.
As for your question though; develop some creative passions and hobbies. Then go onto self employing yourself online so you'd at-least value your time spent and have a lot of free-time in between projects. Won't ever have to deal with people directly.
I'm that anon that has published novels and is moving onto game design too recently. The former especially make a lot of bank. Also get good at stocking and investing. There are online options for those too.
Between my current investments, stocks, and authoring, I already have my own paid off house and car. Enjoy doing it every day since those are things I did every day before I marketed myself.
Wageslavery isn't too bad if you get a decent job that you enjoy.
I work 37 hours a week in a small IT company that pays well, where the managers are chill and everyone is friendly with each other. The only thing I miss about being NEET is getting to sleep in every day. Other than that I never want to go back. Working some 50 hour manual labour job for minimum wage is never worth it though.
