Hey, kid. Welcome to Prison.

You think you just woke up here one day, right? Think again. It was your whole life that brought you to this. Fact is, you were born to be here. Go ahead, look around. I’ll be here when you get back.

Looks smaller than it is, don’t it? Sometimes, it doesn’t even feel all that bad. But still, You look through those bars, and you see all that you’re missing. Hopes. Dreams. What could-have-been. Here, put your palms up to the Black Iron, grab the bars, let me show you something.

Feel that? That’s all the books you’ve read. And that entire wall over there is your adolescence. Look up: It’s your CD collection. The floor you woke up on? Your parents. Like I said, you were born to be here. It’s your life, it’s the cold trap of your own existence. You painted yourself into a corner.

So, now you’re wondering why you feel trapped here, in your own life. Why now, why today, can you see the bars of a Black Iron Prison that you made for yourself? Because you stopped reacting, and took a couple of steps forward. You thought you could do what you wanted, you tried to be self reliant, and bang. You smacked your head against the wall.

Look around you. Look at these cold, black bars. The colorless ceiling. The hard ground. That’s your universe. That’s the world you’re going to be living in for the rest of your life here in Prison. You’re going to live out your life in quiet desperation. Or, not so quiet if you decide to take the rife/bell tower route. Either way, long or short, it’ll feel the same. Dead, unchanging.

So, if you’re interested, I’d like to invite you to a jailbreak... Just turn around.

I actually got banned from 4chan for a two months. I decided for once just to not ban evade out of curiosity.

Those two months have been the most productive and healthy time in my life. I honestly feel like my outlook and general mindset of life has improved by avoiding this website. Of course I came back after the ban is up. Instead of killing yourself why not get visit by the party van and give you a few months of tranquil release.

It's all moot though, you're here forever.

That's the plan, m8. Problem is economy class fucked me up real bad in high school and now I see every dollar that isn't a sound investment is a dollar wasted, and said dollars add up to be a large amount which can be used to purchase better things.

I bought a pizza yesterday for around $16 and I was pissed at myself later for not just going to Little Caesars and getting a shitty cardboard pizza for $5.

And that's why I don't play the lottery, a dollar wasted at playing it is literally a dollar wasted, there is no upside.

I'll still play someday, maybe when I'm less autistic.

be a sellout, work smart and put love into your work.

don't compromise any part of your game. players can tell when you're being lazy or when you don't love your game.

also, learn how to properly monetize and expand into as many platforms as possible and logical for your software.

Come on and - save me

you can compromise, it'll just lower your chances of succeeding. you don't need to be an excellent artist do make your game look good, just work hard really.

Carpentry, plumbing, electrical, etc

People shit all over it but its a really solid profession and the workforce is all hitting retirement age.

Community college/trade schools are a lot cheaper then uni. Just be prepared for people to shit on you for going into a 'low end job'.

Low risk, high reward anon.

Getting a job was the best thing to happen to me.
Living on my own, can afford all the vidya, consoles, and beefy pc i want.
Sure working sucks, but being a walking disappointment to my family while living at home was horrible and vidya was my escape.
Now i actually appreciate my free time and dont need an escape, i can truely love vidya again.
Neets will brag how good they have it while they play dota on their toaster and whine that everything costs money, its hard to be jealous.

Thanks anons, will take all into consideration. I think since I've already spend a lot of time with computers I should look into IT. Do any of you know, or anyone else, having any good suggestions for specific roles? In the UK atleast we have apprentiships where you go work for a company, get paid, but they teach you at the same time and give you a degree or simular at the end, but it's usually IT [insert name of role here] job. Probably sounds stupid but should probably look up and see what I enjoy most, just wanna know if there's something I should generally avoid if daily work life it shit, or isn't worth the time. Thanks again.

I was a NEET from age 22-25. The first year was fucking glorious. Felt like I was cheating at life. By the third year I was so depressed that I pretty much no longer enjoyed vidya. I couldn't play without being high, and I had become so isolated that I only played stuff like League or CS, just to have people communicating with me; or if I had no weed, shitposting for hours.

I've been employed making a humble 40k for the last 3 years and I'm happier than I've ever been. I live with my girlfriend instead of my mom. I have health insurance. I still have plenty of time for vidya, and I enjoy it way more.

One of my oldest friends trainwrecked his life and is still a 28 year old NEET. He tries to unironically brag about it sometimes and I just let him. Why rub in the fact that he's depressed as fuck, lives with his parents (who have lost all respect for him), and because of that will also be alone until he unfucks himself? Bragging about his wretched existence is one of the only things he still has.

Don't listen to this guy. He's lying to make you feel bad about your life.

It's actually decent being an older neet. Since you had so much free time studying subjects you enjoyed, you now have the enlightenment required to study something you're passionate about.

Boredom is the best thing for curing a lack of creativity. I'm currently an accomplished screenwriter and the first 6 years of my life all I did was sit around and figure out what I wanted to write about.

As someone who went to uni and is now a qualified solicitor, a "professional", take it from me: do an apprenticeship. My mate started at the bottom as a pipe fitter. He earns twice what I earn and has done for about six years. And he's thick as shit.

Every cunt goes to uni now as a matter of course. We're a nation of flabby call centre workers.

Learn a trade that requires skill. Doesn't matter about starting at the bottom. Learn something useful and you'll find your skills are in demand.

Just giving my anecdotal experience, friend. You might be happy. It goes without saying that many NEETs are not. My friend is now an alcoholic that regularly abuses his prescription lorazepam; benzos that he was given recently to try to dull the constant background hum of anxiety and self-hatred that permeates his existence. The love of his life left him when it became clear that he might never get his shit together.

That's the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard. If you make that much money you can invest and spend in luxuries. If you don't enjoy life while you're young you'll regret it when you're older, even if you have 10million saved when you're 60.

He doesn't have to spend all his fucking money at once to enjoy life or do things he enjoys. He can live in a humble adobe and buy stuff for his hobbies. Doesn't mean he has to buy 20 new cars or something stupid.

God damn you're dumb.

If you make 110k a year you can play vidya on a 10k PC that will last you years, and by then the 10k wont matter at all.

I don't care about a modest house. Even if I was a millionaire I'd want to live in a modest house. Regardless, there is a huge difference between a high end gaming PC ($2k-3k) and a big house ($300k-$600k).

You're literally retarded.
>>
>>323083396
living at home and being a NEET is completely different.
I lived with my parents til I was 32, no one talked shit about me (afaik) because I supported my family and helped pay half the rent.

Which was infinitely cheaper than wasting money renting or trying to get a mortgage when I have literally nothing saved up (and for a long time had student loans). That's a stressful way to live, hoping every month you have enough money to pay for everything and if the slightest mishap were to happen you'd be fucked. It's how most people quickly spiral out of control with credit card debt.

What the fuck is he doing with his future though? 110k a year is plenty of invest in your future, live in a decent home, and pay for your hobbies.

He could save/invest 70k of it a year and STILL have plenty for hobbies and a home. Whats he going to do? Save till hes 60 then buy a fucking mansion, nice cars, and travel the world for 10 years before he dies of a heart attack? Whats the point

>NEETs think they are living the dream and being so clever by cheating the system and being literal parasites

Well guess what? It's not gonna last forever. All it takes is a state/federal audit, or a reduction in benefits or elimination of them entirely, and your free ride ends.

So what, you say, I can just move back in with the parents. Well they don't want you. I'f you're so fucking pathetic that you got to the point where you had to cheat the system to get benefits you aren't supposed to have to continue your selfish, lazy lifestyle, then your parents probably either a)kicked you out before or b)already resent you for being a failed human being and wasting your potential. They will probably let you leech off them some more though like the suckers they are, because, after all, you're family, right?

So you might get to continue this empty life, devoid of substance, but for how long? Your parents aren't going to last forever, nor will their patience or kindness. Once they kick the bucket, or kick your ass out again and finally disown you for good, what will you do? Suicide? You don't have the balls. If you did, you wouldn't be in this situation. If you do, good luck affording any method that's painless like exit bag or just blowing your brains out. (protip: down the street, not across the road)

You're living on borrowed time, NEETs. And that time is quickly running out. Fix your sorry excuse for a life, or just end it now. You will be doing all of us a favor.
