I live on benefits and have been unemployable for years. The third work programme I'm on right now haven't even gotten me a single interview.
The thing is, I don't even care that much. Working a standard minimum-wage job would mean I would go from working 0 to 40 hours a week and be somewhere between £30-£80 better off when deducting travel costs, tax and all the rest of it. Can't really blame people for not being too upset that they don't spend 40 hours working and 10 hours commuting when they're not going to be much better off.

The brain rationalizes the familiar. It takes effort to change and sacrifice to get a job and be productive, but being a NEET is so attractive because it requires nothing. That part of your brain that feels guilt and boredom is outshined by the part that feels comfort and safety.
Some people. I know I'm that way. I sat on unemployment for half a month, drained all of my savings, barely went outside last year, and I regret having done that now, but at the time I didn't even feel bad about it. I told my friends and family I felt guilty and was going crazy, but secretly I didn't want it to end.
You have to know yourself. I know I have a real addiction to comfort zones. I can't ever let myself get on benefits again, because I'm such a fucking NEET in my heart that I would stay on benefits forever if no one stopped me.
I almost lost my latest job a few times in the interview process (health, fucked up paperwork, etc), and each time I felt relief, not dread. I already want to lose this job, and that's fucked up.
What kind of shitty parents do you have that let you leech off of them like this?

NEET life is shit after a while, i had it for two years and I wouldn't go back. Don't get me wrong, finally being able to 100% games and play things I missed out on in my teen years was great for the first few months, but after a while it just becomes a depressing void. Each day just melts into the other, and you don't appreciate vidya time because it can be as constant/often as you like, rather than weekend escapism.
No, no, Anon... privileged.
I checked mine... and it's good. Thanks, Anita.
>I can't ever let myself get on benefits again, because I'm such a fucking NEET in my heart that I would stay on benefits forever if no one stopped me.
This. I compulsively make to-do lists because I know if given the chance, I would honestly do absolutely nothing on weekends. At my core I'm so much of a NEET that I'm even capable of procrastinating on vidya and films, preferring to just wade through random internet pages if left to my own devices. I lived like that for an entire year, and I don't want to go back to it

Absolutely disgusting. I can understand being weird socially and not wanting to go out and interact with people, I really do. But not having a job? Being a leech that's sucking out the lifeforce of your family/parents just because you're a lazy piece of shit? That's scum of the earth tier right there.
The worst part is that the majority of the NEETs on here are above average intelligence. There are all sorts of jobs that would be easy as fuck for them, and the fact that they haven't gotten one of these jobs yet is just due to laziness. Any NEETs on here should do their parents a favor and man the hell up by getting a job. Or just kill yourselves and save them years of pain and suffering.

Anybody here have recommendations for a job that could make somebody happy?
iowa's actually a great place to live so long as you aren't too far away from the urban areas like Des Moines or Iowa City. Low cost of living, nice people, and some natural beauty. I'm from there and will probably be moving back after I finish graduate school.
What do you like to do Anon? Personally for me I volunteer. I always like to leave work at work and if you bring work into your home, you'll have the constant nagging feeling everytime you want to relax.
I've been NEET before. Monday afternoons are the most depressing thing imaginable. You can see that mental decay and panic clearly in /r9k/
Time flies when you're playing SINS.
>what is inheritance
If I lost my job right now it would make absolutely no difference to my lifestyle, except instead of living with my parents and having no gf, I would now also have no job to boot.
I'll give you the low cost of living. The city I was looking into for Iowa is Urbandale, just north of West Des Moines. I could get a place far nicer than my own for the same cost, sure. But the only things that seem to be going for it is a giant supermarket and park in that city. Being from Washington and California, the small city thing really deters me.
Also, the cost of houses didn't seem to change there for the past 19 years. While I house I am in now has gained enough value to cover my expenses living here this entire time. That wouldn't have happened there.
I enjoy volunteering. Also make a short lived career out of it back in college at a local MDA branch. If I could get a career assisting others in a meaningful way, that would be amazing.
I just turned neet a few weeks ago. At first I hated it, was bored, felt like shit, thought I was worthless, etc
Then I got used to it. God damn I love being neet. I finished my backlog, caught up on a bunch of shows, and having no responsibility is wonderful
I feel bad for you wage slaves
Iowa's not a big shithole that a lot of people think it is. There are a lot of nice people, and they'll help you if your honest with them. The bitch of living in Iowa is the weather though, but that's really the only downside.

Urbandale is a great community for young people. It's also about 10 minutes from downtown des moines and has lots of stuff to do. the problem is, due to it being a community for young people, equity isn't exactly a thing unless you purchase a relatively expensive home. a lot of the places you'll be looking at are "starter homes" for young couples and families so they won't gain much value. that's a symptom of a growing community sometimes as far as i know. visit des moines and see if you like it before moving there. it has a pretty strong culinary scene and a lot of young professionals, but it is much smaller than coastal cities.

Is that any better? i stopped watching when i realised i was watching a documentary about a farm, and they axed Darrabont.

Oh there is plenty of cool stuff too
And even more if you're a country-boy/gun fanatic
though I'm a bit socially introverted and coming home after work for sex and videogames with a gaming bro sounds like an ideal night to me.
Did your parents get sick of you that fast?
Mine don't mind me living here as long as I'm going to college courses and working.
The only downside is having to live with 6 dogs and 4 cats, and 2 ferrets
Nope. Axing Darabont was also putting the final nail in the coffin. Frank has balls and anyone else that has worked on it after does not.
An aside: I will watch anything Frank Darabont shits out now. Doesn't matter what. After the new ending he made to "The Mist", I know he isn't afraid to write what's good instead of what is most marketable.
Ah, I'm not much of a country-boy even though I grew up there. Shooting is always fun though, and it'll probably be a lot more interesting with Texan gun laws.
This sounds odd but do you have a steam id? It would be nice to talk to someone who lives in Texas and seems cool
That is one of the most fucked up things I've read on this board

You just exist. I mean you'll need to have parents or family members that won't throw you out in the cold. Unless you're extremely attractive and can get some older lady/man to take care of you in exchange for sexual favors. I'm sure some of you could probably do that.
This. Although I can tell my mom is starting to get sick of my shit though.

Old Game Grumps episodes with JonTron. Currently Sonic '06.
Went to iHop, was pretty great.
I don't see a problem with that, assuming you're not working for it. I could live in an apartment on the city on that and still have a couple hundred left to spend on figs or other garbage each month.
I really don't want to go on benefits. I really just need to find a job that's right for me.
I've thought about call centers.
I have trouble just doing basic math, I don't think I could ever code anything.
Well considering you make about 6.7K a month, and let's say that's 4-4.5K after taxes, rooming with someone for 1.5 a month still nets you 3K of wiggle room every month. You can easily stay under 500 for food, and given that student loans are paid back in only meager increments over time, you could manage to have at least 2K of money left over at the end of every month. Anything else you're spending it on is complete self-indulgent.

>tfw hate schooling and dont know what to do
Im not interested in STEM and a history or english degree would be a waste. I was thinking of getting a skilled trade, maybe be an electrician, I only need like 60-70k a year to be really happy with life.
I do, because I've lived on ~250 a week before doing just that. It depends on the city, the one I'm in is really cheap because it's technically on the edge of niggerland, though they stay across the river.
I remember a long time ago on the Nintendo 64, jfg1 was a great game. You played as a space ranger kind of like star trek. Going to different planets and exploring your way through while saving lives. Your enemy was mizars drones. These giant blue ants, when they died they exploded and their head flew off and you get to collect them. My favorite part about the game was the techno club on the moon. There is more to the game than just that but I hardly remember. There should be a remake or sequal on ps4 but it won't happen unless we as a community cause an up roar. Let's make this happen all over the internet. Copy paste copy pasta
>I've thought about call centers.
Prepare yourself for a toxic work environment. It's kind of like working inside of a game of LoL. Your training might not be so bad, and the people you train with might not be so bad (they could be though), but once you're on the floor you'll be stuck with these long-timers who are just going to drive you up a wall. No body worthwhile sticks with a job like that for very long, so the people who make it to supervisor positions are actual retards.
It's good work experience that can help you get another job later on, even if you only work there a short time. Six months to a year is good. Once you reach that point, start looking for something else that isn't retarded.

>You're getting a root canal and you drink coke? Nigga, it might be a sign.
Bro I wouldn't be getting a root canal if I wasn't drinking Coke. I know that shit. Doesn't mean that I'm going to stop drinking coke. Means that I'm going to work my ass off to afford dental implants someday.
I know that because I live here too, but 2K a month of extra spending money is beyond luxurious. 80K annually is way more than a single person, even in SoCal, would "need" to get by comfortably.
I'm not sure how I'd handle it. I just know that I can't deal with being on my feet for 8 hours a day while packaging and handling shit. When I get home I feel like dying and I just go to sleep until the next day. I'm thinking maybe I just need to work part time somewhere until I can find a decent job in something I enjoy that's related to my major.
Same. America here, I got it when I got out of the Air Force. They kicked me out for depression but tried to tell me that I wasnt eligible for medical retirement. Had to fight the system to get it but for what I get now? Worth it
>I hope you never have to get those implants.
I hope so too, anon, but I have accepted it as an inevitability. My parents didn't really enforce or encourage dental hygiene when I was young, so shit went sideways long before I was an adult. I floss, brush and use mouth wash now, I'm pretty good about sticking to a good habit... but it's too little, too late.
Just finished playing Just Cause 2 MP
Nothing at the moment
>until I can find a decent job in something I enjoy that's related to my major.
What is your major? That could be difficult if you got suspended. Also, if you're going into I.T., there is a mandatory sentence of six months in a Xerox work camp, so you may as well get it out of the way now.
It's Anthropology for now, but I'm still not 100% sure that's why I want to go into. I don't even know if they'd let me work in a museum as the janitor with my non-existent work experience.

It really only works if you're not employed at the time. I don't want to get too deep into the actual method for fear of ruining it, but a 5150 will fast track you. Do note that you have to actually be mentally ill in some way to consider lying and cheating the government for free money. Also it should go without saying, but don't break the law if you manage to get on them. Lots of idiots do.
How do people live the NEET life? Do you just live off your parents?
What are you gonna do when your parents die?
College is garbage if you go in not knowing what you want to do or have a mind to meet people and shit like that. I'd try and find a study group so you can at least try to meet some people.
I'm literally shitting myself about going to college, fuck it feels like it was yesterday that I dropped out of high school in 2009 and got my GED in 2011.

There are so many programmers who leave the tech industry by their late 20s to start a new career for this exact reason. You get too much, get tired of staring at computers quickly, and programming is generally

University is a right pisser, i'm in my 3rd year doing my diss, i go out every night but Tuesdays because im in the lab Wednesday. Work in the day, do uniwork off and on during the day out at night. Life is good. No offence but i dont see how you can struggle.
College is only what you make of it. You have to put in a serious effort to get something out of it. You can't just go each day and never interact and then go straight home.
It's really true that it's not for everyone. You might want to try studying for a vocation or something like that.

Went to university and dropped out for a year, they gave me a lot of free money because my family is poor. Also the loans which have a 0% interest rate and I won't have to repay until I earn £21,000 at least. I'm cheating the system.
Will probably have to get a min wage job at some point however.
Wow fuck that noise. Those truck cats are always pissy too.
She is on her third year in the peacecorp trying to get some recommendations for grad schools. She was hoping she could get some scholarships but no luck. At this rate she might either stay in the peace corp not doing what she wants or totally negate my the money they spent for her on the peace corp and pay more money for grad school. Its a lose loee in my mind.
My god, final semester of HS was probably the fucking peak of my life. I didn't have a gf or anything like that but I finally stopped feeling so much anxiety and started putting myself out there more.
Than after graduation everyone went their separate ways. Everyone has moved on with their lives except for me.
>it's nothing like my teachers told me it was going to be
Welcome to every college course.
Your tutors are teaching you the shit that would have been really useful when they were your age going into the field. Now things have advanced, but they're pretty far behind.
Next lot in will see the shit being taught wasn't that usefull to them, find new shit to teach, and the cycle starts again.
My comp sci class taught mainly java with a small bit of C++. You get out and it's mostly C++ and Python and fuck all java in a lot of places.
You need the degree though. Nobody cares what you learned because they know it isn't worth shit in the real world. They just want to see the piece of paper.
Not really. Outside of peak season they hire maybe 10 people within 8 months and only 1 or 2 people stay.
Drivers get shit on my managment with unrealistic expectations. They hate their jobs but make decent money.

I couldn't care less about making more money, women these days are all whores, they aren't worth it, houses are extremely overpriced and as for children I shouldn't be a parent.
I am thinking about a new career, maybe watchmaker, I could do graphic design but then I'd be stuck with hipsters.
I should move to the US where I could shoot guns in my backyard, do offroad on a ATV and go fishing all day.

>tfw you actually had friends in HS
If some high school underage is reading this, don't count on your friends in HS forever. They will all just fucking leave you after graduation.
Depends on the person. For me I feel like my quality of life took a serious dip after childhood and then after hitting rock bottom steadily began to rise again. High school fucking blew, college has been pretty good so far and I feel like things will only get better from here. I'm one of those guys who looks forward to his career (doctor/medical researcher) looks forward to starting a family and most importantly looks forward to raising a son so I feel like my adult life will be the best.
Honestly... if you can get a decent job, working adult time is a pretty good time. Just gotta keep stress under control and manage your time outside of work so that you don't just live to work; that's really hard, actually.
I love being able to go out to eat, buy vidya/figures/whatever, take my girlfriend out... without thinking too hard about money. It's a good feeling.

It's been getting better, though.

You guys NEED to remember why you stopped being NEET. At least I do anyway. I stopped because it became unbelievably mundane with an ever increasing horrible feeling of being an unfulfilled worthless underachiever.

Learn a skill or find your passion while you still have the time.
Tomorrow do something you've never done or look up something that has seemed interesting to you before and learn about it.
Don't let your life become like mine.
High school was the fucking best.
All that mattered was that you were cool, which was fucking easy.
After high school, you have to be cool, have a good job, a house, be studying, et cetera.
I don't want to talk to anyone nowadays because I don't have that stuff, whereas I loved talking to people in high school because there was no pressure.
Typically the friends you make in high school vanish it seems and the friends you make in college are the ones who actually become lifelong friends. For me it's a mix of the two. Ironically I made friends in college who went to my high school but never really went beyond high school acquaintances.

Then slowly realize how insanely complex and hard it is to be a good parent, and it's like playing chess and juggling at the same time with a good chunk of roulette.
God help your soul if it's a girl, there is a seven out of ten chance that if they're reasonable cute they're been gagging on douchebag cock no matter what you do, and if they're ugly they're going to fuck the loser no one else wants to fuck.

Watch as you think to yourself "what did I do wrong?" every day for years on end, and no one will ever be able to answer you, and even if they did, it's too late.

>Then slowly realize how insanely complex and hard it is to be a good parent
It's not that hard. Be patient, attentive and sensible, and you'll rub off on your kids. Be neglectful and fucking stupid, and your kids will grow to be shitty. Teenagers will be teenagers. Just make sure that they come home in one piece and don't fuck up too badly.

Not that anon, but god damn actually MAKING friends is hard as fuck.
All of the ones I had in HS talked to me first, I just sat there and they did their thing, I probably talked too quietly or gave short annoying answers and yet they kept at it, and now I have to do it?
College was the best time for me... It was where I found alcoholism. I learned of the dark magic booze could perform. Almost lost my wizard-hood, almost.
>The typical American life is a lie sold by sitcoms. Life isn't that simple.
Expanding on that a bit: I dropped out of college around age 23. I went back to my parents' place. Did nothing for about three years. Started doing online classes at a community college, but still mostly did nothing and lived the NEET life. Finally got a job as a substitute teacher at a high school, because it had little in the way of responsibilities, and I could work when I wanted. Had my associate degree by then. Started taking online classes with a university working towards a BS. After a few years of that, I moved to a bigger city, and started working full time at a call center, while finishing my degree. Quit the job after six months because it was bullshit. Got my degree. Spent another couple of months trying to get a job. Was super stressed during most of this time because I was living off of student loans, tax returns, and small handouts from my poor-ass parents.
Around August I got a good job. After a few weeks, I started looking for a girlfriend on OkCupid. Put some time into it, found someone who I really clicked with. Now I'm living happily, mostly carefree. I went from being in what I had considered to be a fail-state, to being successful and happy.
Anons there is hope for you. You just have to make the decision to trudge forward, put up with some bullshit at first, and keep yourself going every day. Good luck.
HS was both the lowest and highest point of my life in that order.
I mean, I even got bullied and shit, but in the end I acted so carefree and I was so confident it's almost like if I was a different person.
I'm trying to play some Nuclear Throne, but its a bit confusing. No tutorial or anything, so trying to learn it as I play is a bit hard. So far I really like the chicken, slow-mo reflecting bullets with my sword is sweet.
Random youtube shit
I had dinner, it was broiled chicken because I'm a poorfag right now (don't get paid for a few more days)
I grew up with kids in the family. I've had baby nieces and nephews since before I was 13. Again, it's not that hard if you're not neglectful. Even if you have no experience with children, you'll still pick up on it pretty quick.
Everyone wants to be NEET in the end anyway (retirement) NEETS are only pro enough to understand the meaning of life and live it, before wasting 65 years.
Way to go, ahead of the curve!
As long as you do something fun.
Being a rockstar is basically being NEET
>put up with some bullshit at first
This is the most difficult part for me, especially because of my awful anxiety and willingness to give up easily. Fuck man, I really just want to find a job that I can cope with.
>looking for a girlfriend on OkCupid
That shit only works for casual sex with strangers, and even then, that's fucking pushing it.

Anon until you actually have to raise a kid yourself, kindly shut the fuck up.
You don't know my situation. I don't believe you're in any place to be calling me delusional. There's parenting hardships, and there's being an inept parent. They're not one and the same.
Its great if you are looking for a fat girl that you really connect with on a donut shop level.
Yeah, the bullshit is a pain in the dick. You don't need to put up with it forever though, just long enough that you can prove some work experience. Then you have to put up with the bullshit of applying for jobs in your free time, that is another pain in the dick. During all of that you kind of have to focus on small reasons to celebrate, like your break times and lunch.
You also had the opertunity to always walk away and take a break when shit got too much.
When you're the parent, you're the last line.
Its not how easy it is. Looking after baby isn't the issue. It's looking after baby every single fucking waking hour with very little time away from baby is the issue.

>sometimes when I'm at work I pretend I'm the guy from shenmue
I'm not him, but I had to take guardianship of my little cousin when I was 20, and take care of him for 5 years.
Parenting is not that fucking complicated. I had him when he was 3 months old. Its tough and can put some stress on you, but it is not at all complicated. He also turned out fucking great, he is currently 8 and I see him all the time.
Sure I didn't take care of him for 18 years, but as kids get older they're easier to take care of.
Most of us turned out alright, and there is no reason your kids can't either.
Haha holy shit, this kid.
OkCupid worked great for me, didn't even take very long. Match.com was a waste of time though, that shit was ridiculous, giving me matches based on not hating certain kinds of pets and shit.
Also tried Geek2Geek. I think that site may be a scam. It's got no people using it actively, at the very least.
I used to feel this way largely due to excessive anxiety. Jobs and the 'outside world' cause stress. I lock up when stressed, dry heave, all sorts of bullshit.
I thought it was all mental. Once I gave up drinking any sort of soda, it cleared up rapidly. Lost twenty pounds too, just from that.
Now I can handle stress easily, and a job.
It's night and day.
>You just explained your situation
I gave pretty little details, man. The only part of the situation that I mentioned was that I have experience with being around and raising children.
>You've never been a parent
I don't have a child of my own, but I'm an uncle to many. I live with two children right now. Now you have some details.
>but as kids get older they're easier to take care of.
So you never had to take care of someone over five years old, yet you feel confident enough to say kids get easier to handle when they get older.
One to five are literally the easiest years because you can completely control them.
When they start to crave independence and doing their own thing, puberty, peer pressure, that's when parenting gets hard.
Not "Holy shit I have to keep my eye on him so he doesn't fall down the stairs"
Depends on the situation, but it can be. It starts with a conversation, man.
>You also had the opertunity to always walk away
That's one hell of an assumption.
>When you're the parent, you're the last line
Can't disagree there.
I dealt with peer pressure, I dealt with puberty, I dealt with all that shit. Its not hard if you teach your kids values.
My brothers and I all turned out great, and I'd teach any kid the same way. You must really think teenagers are stupid if you think you can't talk to them. I had plenty of talks with my parents that really made me feel better and I learned how to deal with shit.
Taking care of a baby 24/7 who's life is completely in your hands and is incapable of caring for itself is much more difficult than having a teenager.
>I dealt with peer pressure, I dealt with puberty, I dealt with all that shit. Its not hard if you teach your kids values.

>Highschool fucking sucks, working is much better.
Yep. I think that some people can't separate their work lives from their personal lives though. So they just end up thinking about work all of the time, and get burnt out.
Go in anon.
There may be little work, but it'll look good for your boss. Shows you're a good guy that won't take every easy out. If he asks why you came in, just say "Just in case, it's only a bit of snow."
If shits still quiet he might send you home early, so you still get paid, get some extra time off and look good.
I do this shit with my staff all the time. If they stay home I don't hold it against them, but if they come in and make little efforts I mention that when they go on for other jobs, or remember it when they do need time off.
