What do you mean by "fucking with people"? Like trying to get a rise out of them for no reason but for your own amusement? That's not a great way to make friends.

Sometimes I wonder if it would be less offensive if they actually paid me in peanuts.

There are good and decent people out there, it's just due to your/my social awkwardness the only people you/I attract are psychos.

>>16422320
Anon, that is complete horse shit. I used to have several circles of friends, none of them could be considered good or decent people, well maybe one but even then he made shitty choices due to shitty situations as well thus fucking others over, hell i was a evil bastard back then as well!.... . . my point being that whilst i agree there are good people out there, they are insane, thus negating my friendship criteria.
>>
>>16422495

There are good people out there that aren't totally insane. I can say this because I've met more than a few myself. They are the minority though by far and they generally keep to themselves because they have been taken advantage of by others during several points in their lives. Being forgiving and helpful are traits that other people will take advantage of until the 'good' person is no longer willing or able to provide the things desired by those trying to take from them.

You should be applying for jobs, w/e you can and are willing to do. Maybe not everyone ITT needs a job, but some of us do face financial concerns. Its not like I wanted to work 2 jobs on principal, I needed to and I still make shit pay, but i feel better about myself and opportunities are opening up.

It's a seasonal retail job where I'd be working overnight stocking shit for $8 an hour.

I don't really like the idea of going to a group interview anyway. I wouldn't stand out as far as physical appearance and I'm socially retarded.
>>
This may or may not be the right place to ask, but is stopping watching internet porn and masturbating frequently beneficial?

I think I need to improve myself, and I am certainly not happy with the amount of time spent on porn, or the kind of wicked porn that I've escalated to.

i don't know why parents are so insistent on their spawns going to college, get a jawb at a low level in the feild of your choice and work your way up as soon as possible, dont go into debt and attempt to enter the workforce at the same time as other people who have just as much if not more motivation and qualifications as you. I think it is so unfair parents do this to their children and expect to be loved in return.

A committee interview for this?! Man...that's ridiculous.
>>
>>16424366
The problem with the job thing is that basically every job involves hours upon hours of standing. With these knees I can't take that, I'll end up limping.
>>
>>16424995
I don't mind the idea of actually doing the job. I fucking love doing shit overnight. I just don't like the idea of a group interview whatsoever. I hate being picky; but fuck man. Going out and actually participating in it is easier said than done for someone like myself.

The interview I have tomorrow is for a different seasonal retail job where I'd be working very early in the morning, I don't remember the position. But it pays $2 more.

Okay, Well I decided on going.

Now the only problem is that I don't even remember if it starts at 6PM or 6:30PM and i'm too much of an aspie to call and make sure. I think it would make the employer have the assumption that I'm unorganized too.
>>
>>16425727
call, emlpoyers love the keen thing, and below average can also be a bonus depending on the job, so act stupid and nice and you will get bonus points.
>>
>>16425731
I'm not even sure if I'll actually have transportation to the place where I'll be interviewed at regardless.

and I'd feel better asking about what time it actually starts in person. Though I don't think that's a good idea.
>>
>>16425740
Yeah I'm pretty much fucked. I tried calling and not only did it take them several minutes to answer the phone, the employer isn't there so I couldn't have confirmed the time or try to reschedule if that would even be possible. I don't have a way of getting there

If I left right this minute I'd be lucky to barely make it to the interview on time.

I can't really blame anyone though, it's my fault for being such a bitch.

My parents sucked.

My dad was lazy. All he ever wanted to do was play video games, and drink Pepsi, and he couldn't hold a job.

My mom has been a bus driver for 15 years, but it's never been anough, and we only ever had her financial support to rely on.

The acted like the kind of parents who never wanted kids in the first place. They never enforced brushing my teeth or bathing, so it never became a habit, so I constantly smelled, had terrible dandruff, and my teeth were horrid.

Because of this, I was understandable hated and bullied by everyone at school, which pretty much prevented me from having any sort of confidence and self esteem, and because I had no friends, I had never developed any social skills. It didn't help that I had developed a bi-polar 2 disorder and schizophrenia at a very young age, which my parents never attempted to help me with, because apparently they were too dense to ever realize I had a problem, and those only made me even more bullied and anti-social.

It wasn't until the end of highschool that I started showering and brushing my teeth, but by that time, my teeth were so wrecked, that most of them were removed, and it wouldn't be until last year that I would actually make friends, for the first time.

I guess I could consider myself a NEET of sorts. I don't have a job, I live with my mother and sister, and I recieve a small amount of money from the state, just enough to give my mother rent.

I want like my friends, and I want to do something about my housing and finances, but it feels like my shitty childhood has had a detrimental affect on who I am today, and that combined with a crippling depression, and no motivation or self worth, only makes it even harder.

What should I do?
>>
>>16426537
>What should I do?
Take responsibility for yourself and stop blaming other people for your own problems
>>
suddenly i started feeling depressed, what do?
>>
>>16426544
Your post isn't very helpful.

What you are saying is true, but you left it at just that. You didn't even try to give an explanation, or an opinion on how to properly go about it.

You can say it all day long, but you type it out like it's just that easy.

There are chain smokers who've quit cold turkey, and never suffered a single withdrawl, and then they wonder why other people don't quit, because apparently it's just as simple as putting them down.
>>
>>16426557
Tell somebody. Someone that you think will listen and help. Just talk to them about how you feel, and why you think you feel that way. Just talking helps, a lot. If it gets really bad, then you may want to talk to your doctor about trying an anti-depressant, and if that doesn't help, or makes it worse, then you should consider seeing a counselor.
>>
>>16426571
anti depressants didn't help, therapy didn't help, and it suddenly gets really bad.
>>
Anyone figureout the cause of or what NEETness is? Iv been thinking it was a character trait seeing many of my friends in my area have this similarities but have jobs now,not good ones but they have spending money now ,more than I do.

What is NEET outside of it's acronym?
>>
>>16426575
Outside of it's acronym, are the big three (In my opinion).

Depression.
Low Self Esteem.
Low or no motivation.

I was happier when I was a NEET/shut-in.

I am not a bad communicator, I am very matter of fact (which is quite good when it comes to my job). But when it comes to joking around and making witty remarks to make people laugh in my office, that's where I fall over. Although I do have moments of wit, I can not compete with my older work colleagues who are tantamount to comedians and shoot of witty remarks after witty remark all day long.

I am not sour at them for this, although I do self-deprecate for not being able to provide the same amount of humor that they do on a daily basis.

I cannot revert to NEETdom once again, I must move forwards, as much as it pains me to do so.

>>16426563
Replace bad behavior s with good ones, if you really have schizophrenia, diagnosed schizophrenia, then I don't know what you can do about that but just replace, replace being alone by being with your friends and family, replace doing nothing but posting here and playing videogames if that's the case with good hobby's or a job, replace being locked up all day with going outside. Your life is lacking these things that's why you are stuck both physically and mentally. You need to be OK with one to be OK with the other trust me

Someone at the polling place said I was balding yesterday. I'm not sure if he was trolling or not. He wouldn't had known what I meant if I asked. I asked my mom, and she dais my hair is thinning. I took a picture at work today, and the top does look thinner, not sure if I'm losing it though. It could be the pressure from my earmuffs. I'll make sure the headband leans forward more and see if it recovers.

I don't need this. I've got enough against me in the relationship department:

I told my job my Grandmother was sick in the hospital the other day so I wouldn't have to attend. I have to go in and live with that lie which is really painful.

I've been doing the off and on NEET thing for the better part of two years now and I don't want to revert back, I know it gets grim. But I can't handle basic functions some days. I don't see myself going very far, and I don't work to change that.
>>
>>16427820
I felt the same way about school man.

Some days was gung ho, and others, well, it would take a mountain of drugs to get me out of bed. On the latter days I told my advisor/professor that I was suffering from bad toothaches (I had very bad teeth.).

Some times I did have bad tooth infections, but most of the time I was lying. And I have to live with the fact that I lied to my professor on a regular basis because depression and lazyness are not excuses for missing school. And he would buy it too.

Not the Anon you replied to but I'm pretty content with being a NEET. You just have to find a hobby to occupy yourself with.

The only problem, at least for me is income. I'm not too pressed about not having an active social life; but it is admittedly nice to have. I go outside a few times a month, most of the time it's just me on my own walking late at night though.
>>
>>16428144
The only hobbies I had while I was NEET (I've since upgraded to shut-in) were videogames and telly. They got tiring after 20-odd years.

>take walks at night

I do that to avoid the yuppies, hipsters and students so I don't have my self-esteem knocked down seeing them.

>>
>>16427615
no, again you are incorrect, whilst in my post i did not directly mention specific means to overcomes his problems i did mention they were hurdles for him to overcome.
What it really boils down to is that any person/psychologist will tell him is fortune cookie shit ; "the answer lies within" "i cannot give you a way to live happily you must find it yourself" , which is a bullshit and in actuality they are wrong, in that if society contributed/caused to his problems to such an extent that he is effectively crippled then it should be the one to contribute to a solution. But we do not live in a world of moral equivalent exchange and so he will likely have a hard time psychologically coming to terms with the fact he is in essence alone and must do it all himself. All i did was not let society or his parents escape responsibility.

I feel like people won't ever really want to hire me because they will always find something to discrim against me about. Because I don't dress a certain way or like that my hair is longer or because it's really hard for me to be social so can't do most starter mcjobs. Or that there's always someone just better than me at stuff.
They do what they can to make sure they "don't" hire you. Hell I've heard of times where people weren't hired because they were not currently in a job.

>>
>>16428578
If you want to make it in their world, you're going to have to accommodate their set of standards.

It's not fair, but you have to do it. Once you have a career and some security you can start blowing it off a little bit if you want but most people start to enjoy the respect people give you when you are clean, well-dressed, friendly, and polite and decide not to go back.
>>
>>16428490
>Are you sure you don't qualify for disability?
I don't know. I can't decide what's worse either, having to talk about my problems or what other people will think of it. I've never had any good experience seriously expressing myself to my family or the few friends I have.
>>
>>16428729
I'm friendly and clean , can be nice just I'm really shy/anxious at times. And as far as "well dressed" goes it's a load of shit I dress just fine just because the shirt doesn't have a collar on it it's automatically not "well" I clean my clothes and shower regular and have most hygiene down fine. I'm just judged for wearing t-shirts instead. If I'm never respected for the way I am even being nice should I care right back? Hard to think I should. I hate that people always make me feel like I'll never be successful or if I'm always gonna end up in jobs making me miserable.

I swear, it's like it has to be one extreme or the other for me. I feel like I prefer to be a NEET after all, since the alternative would have resulted in me going on a murderous rampage one day in the near future. But the income matter is the most painful issue now.

All i did was not let society or his parents escape responsibility.
Society writes the rules though, so they just wash their hands of the situation.

Just got a call for a job interview. Just a temporary holiday job. I applied randomly the other night when looking through job listings.

Kinda scared to call back now. After research most people say they'll work you hard, you'll work long shifts with OT constantly, no benefits since you're temp and hardly get weekends off. I'm scared since I don't think I could do this. The last job I had where they worked me hard like a dog, tons of hours, I eventually broke down in a bathroom and quit one morning.

Should I keep looking?
>>
>>16432184
this is so fucking wrong, im going to get my shit in order and succeeded from society asap, it's a fucking cesspool.
>>
>>16432281
If I were in your position I would call back; but I am thinking about this from my point of view where I desperately need a source of income, at least temporarily. So the holiday jobs are perfect for me.
>>
>>16432435
If only you could
I guess you can start tomorrow

>>16432573
nigga i improve every day, i consistently put effort toward often repetitive tasks to better myself and surrounds whilst working toward the long term goal of isolationism. I watch others slave away and get into more and more debt for their loved ones and it makes me sad and mad so i do something about it, at least for mah self.

>Finish school! You only had a semester left. Why throw it all away after all the work you put in?

I realized that I hated my college and the people in it. Having been raised in the US and then entering college overseas where it is cheaper, I really can witness the values dissonance when it comes to student rights.

Even with all the effort of being a leader of the student body, there's a certain inertia that prevents changes to the status quo to the point that I gave up and returned to my own status quo because my efforts were useless.

It's not a big deal for me to transfer elsewhere, and I would do so if I had money. So the issue is forcing myself to find a stable source of income, which is hard since I'm not even fluent in the main language of the country I'm in now. I don't even have enough funds to move back to the US, much less survive the costs of a higher standard of living.

I think you might be right. What's the worst that can happen? It might not work out (be too stressful) but that will at least be money in my pocket with a paycheck or two. Grueling hours might suck but I'm just sitting on my computer otherwise.

After I got the call I received an email saying I had three days to respond to the offer. I will call them back tomorrow morning right when they open. I appreciate your input, anon.

Even if the hours suck and/or they're constantly making you work, the job only lasts 2-3 months and it's something you can put on your resume. I would recommend putting up with it either way.

That's just me trying to look at it from your point of view

You're absolutely right. I just finished filling out the remaining information necessary. Gonna give them a call tomorrow morning and get the ball rolling. They just called today so I think I have time.

I'm just gonna throw myself headlong into this. What happens happens, right? As you said it's only a few months (if that). Worst case is I only get a month or let go. It's good money though, it'll be no more NEET life for a bit and I'd like to be able to actually afford a gift for my younger sister this year. She's been holding me together for a while now.

So I've lost my ability to feel urgency. As an example even if a project or something is due the following morning I still cannot get myself to make myself do anything.

I'm in a rather dire situation in school and I still can't pull myself together to fix it. I really need to pull myself together since I need to support my mother as well. I recognize there is a problem but the matter of actually doing anything is like impossible for me. I've been in a constant state of "I'll fix it, things will change" for years now but nothing has happened.

Is there some sort of a mindset I can get behind to force myself to get shit done.

I can only stand that for 3 days before that dark pit forms in my stomach. After that the rest of the days sort of bleed into each other.

Normally I'd be scared but for some reason this is exciting. Thanks for the support. Gonna try my best.

enlist in the military, navy will take you places, army will make you mentally strong or break you.

Good luck anon. Let us know how it goes.

>>16436114

Study the stupid book they give you. Make flash cards for yourself and just go over them over and over again until all of that crap is on your head. I think if your parents see your dedication they'll reconsider.

Otherwise, join the navy if you want to get involved with the military.

Is it worth it to keep applying for seasonal positions? Or should I just not bother at this point anymore
>>
>>16433076
But this is just a bad stereotype that because your shirt doesn't have a collar on instead it's just simple and clean and a t-shirt ( hell even a long sleeve if you so scared of seeing people's arms in 2015 where it's getting warmer and warmer in general anyway) that "oh my god he/she is a slob and will never be successful or in a job that matters!" I mean I'm not saying wear pajamas and shit but we as a society need to get past a lot of this shit or we are never going to move forward. Not everyone needs to be like this anymore. I dress simple, so fucking what.I don't need to be spending all that money and all that effort cleaning my clothes instead simply throwing it in the washing machine. No ironing, no dry cleaning none of that bullshit. One less thing to complicate in such a world where we over complicate many things as it is.

Check package handling and driver assistance on UPS's job site.
They hire around now for seasonal help. Now is the best time to get in ups. Its not much training and all training is on the job so be prepared for that.
Tons of people come in and decide its not for them, but really its a mind over matter thing and doing it because it will work for you in the long run. but you have to ask yourself whats worth it to you, I recommenced giving it a try though.

You have to make the best of what you got.
Life is a ride you can only steer so much. It mostly matters you have a good outlook.
Do you empathize with our elders? To be young should mean you are capable to do much. At some point in life we all have to bear pain and not let it bother us.

attempt to kill yourself then, but when the time comes if you have somthing left you want to accomplish, acheve or even experience it has the uneering mental tick of suracing, hold onto it as a immediate reason to exist, if you have nothing then you truly will enjoy death.

Going to start walking some woman's dogs every weekday for awhile starting tomorrow, but my car won't start because I haven't touched it in nearly 10 months. I'm charging it, and I hope it starts after a few hours of charging.

Haven't had a job ever. This woman is willing to pay $25/day for 45m-1h of walking or $500/month in a normal month with no holidays or anything. Really hope I can get out of the NEETlyfe for at least a bit with this.

Please start.
