So it's been a month since 2016 started.
What have you done so far to improve your life, robots?
Same old man honestly nothing fucking changed, still going to school, still smoking weed everyday, and slowly chipping away at my degree. Life is the same day in day out living on the same paycheck week in and week out. Life is but a merigoround I suppose however, what happenes when im done school and have completed my masters im scared!??
Pretty much nothing but play mmos
But my coding profesors was busy covering for his coworkers this month and my drawing profesors was on a trip
Pretty good tho, I could ha e modeled on blender but I did that for two months prior
And I feel like I deserved a rest, I haven't really taken a free month in about a year
Because they literally don't have any food, while you're a weak minded fat fuck who will eventually snap and binge eat 8000 cals and lose all motivation. The proof is the current state of your body.
>Just count your calories
That's a really good way to lose weight for a year before gaining most of it back.
He should eat better. Stop eating carb heavy shit and start eating protein heavy stuff like eggs, chicken, beef, etc.
made my magnum fucking opus
I've been quiet satisfied the past week 2bh
>started working out again and pretty consistently
>started playing bass more
>Finally started learning To Zanarkand on piano
>Got back into reading again
>Started hitting up the library frequently for books and movies
I used to play inline hockey for many years. It's a blast and it was really one of the only things I was good at. The idea of playing with shoes felt strange to me, but it's still fun.
Go for it.
cant do cardio because knee injury, will try to go back to lift.
ill try to cut out carbs, but as a asian,rice is a staple so idk.
it feels bad as fuck honestl,everyone is calling me fat
Carbs aren't your enemies, they fill the stomach and bring energy.
100g of pasta is about 110 cals, nothing alarming. Stay away from all the shit you put on it though, including cheese, butter, sauce (especially pesto this shit is hitler)...
Eat veggies, literally as much as you want, proteins, fruits.
Absolutely stop sodas and fruit juices, drink ONLY water.
As for cardio, try cycling or swimming. Theyre easy on the joints.
Godspeed anon, never give up.
>started hearing voices and tapping/knocking at night
>keep seeing shit out of the corner of my eyes
>haven't gone outside my house since new years to watch the fireworks
>longest streak of not showering, 4 weeks and going strong
>hentai folder just broke the 1 tb mark
WE ALL GONNA MAKE IT
Just fyi, when I say 100g of pasta, we're talking cooked. 100g of cooked rice (which is 5 tablespoons) is above 180cals.
Dunno your weight or height but if you're fat, stay under 2000cals a day and you'll probably lose fat.
I wish you look on fixing your body, your brain's beyond saving
>mfw being led on by a girl who I know is just talking to me to get with my roommate
>mfw i am still talking to her and falling for her
I've genuinely made an effort to cut back on, and ultimately quit, smoking. Had a 3-day streak this week and intend to beat my record this week. Haven't fapped as much. Haven't had nearly as much caffeine. Have improved hygiene and made an effort to be presentable and fresh daily. Reorganized my room. Bought more books. Been microdosing acid and been more productive. Actually went to a party and spoke to new people last night. Been working towards getting grants and internships for the summer. Not much else.
>>started hearing voices and tapping/knocking at night
>>keep seeing shit out of the corner of my eyes
this will progress to full-on hallucinations
I thought it was nothing when it started happening to me
now I'm afraid of mostly everything and cannot distinguish between dreams, video games, and reality.
Not this guy but that's the best way to lose fat op
I have a few friends who are gym trainers, and a cousin of mine is a nutritionist. The way to lose fat is neither eating nor just eating less food with carbs.
To lose weight you gotta eat more times, make 5 meals a day BUT it must be healthy food AND in lower quantities.
1) Have a good breakfast, 2)have a mid-morning snack (maybe a fruit), 3) eat a balanced lunch with high protein and green veggies, 4) have a mid-noon snack (maybe another fruit or a light cookie with a coffee or tea) and 5) have a light dinner (maybe some scrambled eggs or a salad or something like that).
As many say, DO watch your carbs, but doing simply that won't quite cut it. Just be responsable with your meals regarding what you consume, how often you do, how much you do in each meal, and when you do (scheduling the meals works pretty well, since your body gets used to eating at those times and the right amount, adjusting your metabolism)
>Improving our lives
I'm just trying to figure out what the fuck I'm going to do when I fail college. I can pretend i'm still going until May then the real struggle begins of pretending i'm actually doing something with my life.
Apparantly having 0 interest in anything isn't an excuse.
Truly we are brothers. I essentially just stare at the screen blankly, have streams/music on in the background to fill the void, then sleep. I'll force myself to play Dota although I hate it, and anything else gets closed the moment it's opened.
Had to work for 3 years which essentially pushed me to the point of not wanting anything to do with the world. Tried college again since I needed to escape the workplace, don't enjoy that either and no interest in doing the work.
Unfortunately for me it's either I go to college or I work. The thing is, parents usually want their child to live the way they want as long as they're happy, right? But what if the one thing the person wants is to simply not exist anymore .
Not in an edgy way, but I don't want a family, I don't care for riches or success, there's no field I want to work in or be a part of, I do not like people. So there's literally no point of being a waste of resources. And yet killing myself would ruin their lives anyway.
Not the opinions of others, but just my parents really. They put a lot of time/money into me, and in return i've become some 24 year old shut-in with 0 desire to do anything. Be it laziness or depression, i've had medication, i've had counselling and it hasn't changed my view. I don't want a future. Ofcourse there's the 'kill urself then why do you care about your parents if you're dead' That's not how it works.
I'll either live and cause hassle for my parents, or die and cause suffering upon them.
You know, if you where to distance yourself from your family, leave your state go somewhere cheep to live and wait it out a few years just contacting them less and less each passing month it will get to the point they don't think or care much about you anyway and you can kill yourself without hurting anyone.
Dude you are me, I do literally the same thing and there is no way to explain it to other people like I simply don't want to be but I don't want to killmyself and hurt other I just want to cease existing
I envy those people that have a dream
My parents aren't like that, since i'm an only child.
If you've ever seen Welcome to the NHK my mother would be a bit like that, but more active. I'm essentially her life since she doesn't get out much at all, and also does not like people. It's just her and my nan living together since my grandad died.
My dad is kind of also the same way, has no sort of social life outside of work and doesn't really go out. Though he at least has a GF I suppose in his second house.
Basically I wouldn't be allowed to be forgotten, though moving out into a small apartment on my own is something I really want to look at doing. I'm in the UK though so it's a bit harder to just up and leave the county.
Right? Apparantly people find it sad to think like that, but the REAL sadness behind it, is that you're expected to live out a life you don't want to.
It's not that I mean to be ungrateful at all, I just didn't want any of it in the first place.
Well at the time I was working a job I fucking hated, but was forced to keep at, even though it's essentially what forced my depression out into the open. The college course was an escape from that, since anything is easier than working 10 hours a day at that shit-hole.
But time's running out on that, I've done 0 of the assignments because I don't even like drawing and i'll be discharged soon. Though honestly i'll just pretend i'm still going and fake a certificate. After that I'll have to improvise I guess.
as long as you break it off slow they will hardly notice it happening and will put there emotional garbage on some other person.d alternatively you can always con some female that is in your age range with the same interests as your mother to spend time with you under the disguise of being a girl friend then get the two of them talking and friendly with each other once that happens do something that would alienate yourself from both of them so that they latch onto each other at that time you can escape somewhere far away. or just kill yourself once they bond and let the girl support your mother in her grief
Honestly have been trying to figure out why I've lost all my passion for literally everything. Grades are shit, I am not productive in anyway. Before I can improve on anything I need to know why I am this way. I had a 4.0 for two years in a row and now I'm failing half of my classes. Just trying to figure shit out and get back to where I was.
>Apparantly having 0 interest in anything isn't an excuse.
This is the worst thing imaginable.
My NEET time is coming to an end and there's nothing I can do about it but get a job and increase my suicidal thoughts and urges 10 fold because I'm forcing myself to do something I have literally no interest in.
I never asked to be this way, I wish I had an interest in something which I could make enough money to live independently on, I wish I could be happy with a dead end job, I wish I was one of those people who could work any job they wanted just because they liked the people they're around. Unfortunately I'm not, so I'm probably going to wind up killing myself.
I've stuck to my New Years resolution and read a book each week. It's been tough, but if didn't waste time on the Internet I could read maybe 2-3 books a week.
tfw no fat ass girlfriend to sit and fart on your face
That would never happen around here, no one is that sad to pretend to live such a life for the sake of another. Besides she would never become distracted.
I get quite a few people play off the 'Travelling about for a while' to excuse the fact of not being about/being uncontactable, I MIGHT be able to pull that off, but i'd have to get my own small apartment first.
The worst part of it all, is the usual 'BUT OTHERS ARE DOING IT' people, or the whole 'It's all in your head'. Yeah no shit, every fucking thing you do in your entire life is in your head, your brain literally controls everything you think and do.
Put two people in the same situation and they'll both react differently. So ofcourse it shouldn't be all that strange if there's people who actually come to their own conclusion that they hold no interest on living in the world. Shit, why aren't people supportive of the fact that these people manage to actually think LOGICALLY about the situation and come to their own decision, seeing as people kill themselves when trapped and it's 'WHOA SO SUDDEN OMG WHY DIDN'T THEY TALK TO ME' Because you'd say they're sick and put them down further? You'd treat them completely different.
Didn't drink (since October). Stopped taking caffeine pills. Stopped watching porn. Started spending more time with art and nature. Started reading each day. Maintaining a consistent lifting routine. Going on more evening walks. Almost finished with my duolingo tree.
Overall attempting to change my outlook on life. Striving to be more calm and compassionate.
>Confessed to girl (got rejected but ah well shit happens, got it done)
>Got better job
>Took care of some debt
>Started sprint sets instead of jogging, saving time and bettering my gains
>Made some new friends
>Started actually practicing the piano
2016 is my year, I know it.
Yeah, people who can't even begin to comprehend the idea of someone not enjoying something so much that it will literally push them to suicide when forced to do it amaze me. They can't wrap their head around the fact that working something you don't enjoy in the slightest is comparable to locking yourself in a silent white room for 8 hours a day where you have nothing to do but stare at the wall.
>You're going to have to do it if you want to live
>Everyone else does it so you shouldn't have any problem doing it
>You just have to man up and do it
>A lot of people don't like their jobs
>What do you mean you don't want to spend the rest of your life working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, doing something that is worse than death for you?
Stopped eating fast food every week, working on getting back into grad school, clean my apartment more, got a job although it's prn, cut back on my 4 cups of coffee of day habit. I wish I stayed sober though, I feel like I fucked up everything I accomplished right after proudly telling my parents.
See, that's a great thing. Gambling kills so much money, it's best to just save and get money the regular way, no? All the money you save'll add up quick.
>But anon don't you want a family of your own one day?
No, I dislike children and would be a fucking awful father. I also can't even commit to a relationship, let alone bother getting into one
>What about riches? You want to have a decent house and living right?
No I don't care for that, the money would only be wasted away for no reason, and since I wont be having a family, there's nothing for it to go on. I don't go out and I'd never travel. I'd just sit in my room wasting a way to anime and video games.
>What about being successful? It'd fulfilling!
But there's no field I want to be in, so i'd never feel successful, and frankly even if there was, I don't really want to have to go through 30 years of mundane shit for only a small chance for it to even happen
>Lol grow up
People are insufferable because they literally cannot understand or grasp the concept of people being different to them. Some people can shut their mind off and work dead end jobs to work their way up, others can sit down and study new/exciting things into their lives, and some just really cannot do any of those things, thus having no willpower to do so.
Deception like that won't get you anywhere.
So I guess I can assume you've done nothing with your first 31 days then?
There's deception, then there's just being fucking gullible and taking everything you see as fact without thinking for yourself for once.
You're a lot like the rest of the fucking idiots that live by social media and the lives of celebrities.
But the OP asked us what we've done for January.
You reply quickly.
I guess I was gullible, but hey looking at the time and placement of posts like that isn't a typical thing for me. So what did you do?
Sounds great, Canti! Keep confessing to that girl every day until she finally agrees to go out with you.
Even so, it'd be common sense that the guy wouldn't just post normally about what he'd done since the start of the month RIGHT AFTER calling you out.
Anyway, i'm this cunt right here.
Thanks, anon. Though I won't be doing a double confession. If she isn't interested, she isn't interested. I'll move on to the next girl.
Ah well, it's not like he got too much over me. As for your thing, it may sound presumptuous, but I think with the time you could maybe keep from failing out of college. Don't think about failure as an option, it holds you back.
To not fail I would actually have to bother picking up a sketchbook and draw. I haven't done that since I was 14, I did a bit in college when prompted to, but I didn't enjoy it at all, holds no interest. I'm going to fail/quit regardless, I'm just fucked when that comes about on lying about my lifestyle to my parents.
Sacrifices were made for me to be able to go on the course which I only took up because I really wanted to escape the 3-year workplace that drove my depression deep into the well of despair.
I don't want to live, yet I have parents that want me to.
bro just stop tripshitting. there's no reason to be doing it other than for attention. You'd be doing yourself a favor to not have to cringe at doing this in a year or so, once you've escaped your deprived state. you know you crave attention of any kind. find attention another way without polluting my board with your gay avatarfagging and jaded le quirky persona. it's nothing new, it's nothing charming, it's nothing entertaining.
I have it on good authority that 83grams of pasta is around 300 calories.
>I don't want to live, yet I have parents that want me to.
I went through the exact same thing. It's all a matter of accepting that if you're alive so they don't have to worry, you have to play by the rules of the world. You'd be surprised how many people feel or felt this way. Life is kind of a bitch, but that' s just one of the rules. It sounds stupid but that's how I got through it. Just play the game and enjoy a few things during your wait.
>If you don't like this lifestyle, then just ignore it
>If you don't like this movie, don't watch it
>You dislike this food? Then don't eat it
>You dislike living? Put up with it anyway because you have to.
Do you not see how much of a fucked up notion that is?
I'm going to a temp agency tomorrow.
Then I'm going to save enough money to go to Colorado once I turn 21, or Washington, and see if I enjoy living there. Then I'll apply for a FT admin assistant position. Then I'll smoke pot and cry myself to sleep a little easier.
>Do you not see how much of a fucked up notion that is?
I never said the game of life had fair rules.
>arguing about counting anything
>not using pre-packaged mineral powder shit paste
>not leaving your counting to mr shekelbur-I mean, american startups
Seriously though despite the price I eat this stuff to live. When I eat for pleasure its just that: for pleasure, and of course I skip a soylent meal.
Its getting to be a dent in my budget now so Im gonna start sampling other products. Soylent is mainly hype.
