>>16508294

This isn't the first time I've been friendless and probably won't be the last. This is just the first time that losing my one friend was my fault so it's a little harder this time around. I can blame it on being NEET again and I can blame it on past events stressing me out to the point of insanity but it's still my fault in the end.

Making friends is such a slow process for me, I'm not sure if it's even worth the effort at this point since losing them is all too easy.

How does thread feel about socially fucked trans girls?
>>
I'm technicall not a NEET anymore, but I still have social anxiety/ depression problems.

I was a NEET for maybe 2/3 years. After High school I went straight to college and then dropped out because of shitty grades. After doing absolutely nothing for years I went back to college. I made some friends I guess, although now that we don't have classes together I've stopped talking to them.

I have a job, but it's very stressful. I have to answer phones and talk to people daily. To be honest I want to quit, but I'm too scared to tell my supervisor I want to quit and I like having extra money. I don't even know how I got this job in the first place.

NEET life wasn't so bad. I realize that not having friends isn't really that bad, and having a job sucks, but I hate feeling worthless so I guess this is the better of the two.

If someone loves you, just one person, then your life is worth living to the fullest. Do the best you can and love yourself. I love you so don't give up. That is all.

>>16509020

Keep looking for other jobs and try to hold on to this one as long as you can. As long as it isn't driving you insane then you should be ok. If you feel like you're ready to snap then it's time to leave. I made the mistake of hanging around to the point of snapping and it was a bad decision which ended up causing reverberations in other areas of my life.

Having no friends is pretty shit but you can learn to live with it after awhile. The hard part is making a good friend then losing them then having to get back into the 'no friends' mindset once you get used to having one around.

Morbidly obese neet here

well for the first time in my life i think i have the opportunity for a job. an old friend of my mom got her last week and my mom told her if she could get me one too and so she told me to apply.

i want to work extremely badly so i can stop being a neet, but the thing is i honestly do not know if i can last 8 hours standing up.

they told me to apply for the front desk or linen (it's at a hotel) positions.

what if i get the job and then can't handle standing/walking around for 8 hours? i would have to quit and then i'd make my mom and her friend look bad

i started losing weight last month (down 20lbs atm) but i still have a long way to go before i can stand up for long periods

i hate myself so fucking much right now

Keep losing weight, that should be your main priority over getting a job. if you need motivation you should join the NEETworkout with me and bread, we could use someone else to keep things interesting. The time and location are in the OP if you feel like it's something you'd be interested in doing.

It's all body weight workout, mostly pushups and situps, we do some passion4profession youtube videos together in our synchtube channel. If you have a yoga mat it helps. The next one is on Tuesday at 8pm EST. If we can get some more people doing it like the old days maybe we can up it to 3 days a week again.

Yeah, it's odd that I still don't know what people not trapped behind a monitor get up to.

It's Saturday night now and another one spent behind a monitor.

Ever so slightly glad that I stopped working Friday/Saturdays nights, way too depressing.
>>

Also, my new job specifically required me to be able to work one day every other weekend at least. Needless to say I'm not thrilled.

Anyone got their christmas planned out already? I'm going downtown to this good bar i know and i'm going to get fucked up.

going to save up money so i can afford to stay out all night drinking on Christmas.

that may sound depressing but for the last 4 years all i did for christmas was sit in front of my computer like any other day.

so for me going to a bar is going to be great, even though ill be going alone

I feel like I am becoming neet.

Dropped out of college, no job, don't drive, I go out less and less, losing connection to friends, and losing motive.
I began to realize it when I dropped out this August, and even more so when I began to lose connection with friends.
Is there any way I can prevent this?

ideally you would draw a craracter from front and side views but i can wing it with a 3/4, as long as you can design pokemons all is well, i just need to learn how to model for unity ut i can probably learn it in less than a week. Pic related, what im doing tonight
>>
>>16512164

How far into college did you make it? What's your GPA like? Are you in debt? Why did you drop out?

Try to stay connected to friends if you can. I know it's hard when you don't have any self-confidence and you feel like everything is going wrong around you though. Just try not to drag them down if you're feeling depressed, uncertain and anxious about yourself, it will just make them fade out even faster.

Second year in college. My GPA went from a 3.8 to 3.2. I used to take 4 classes last year, this year I was hardly able to take one. When I saw my GPA drop, I got very demotivated.
I plan to go back this coming spring semester, but I'm afraid I'm fail again.

I'm guilty of blogging with that last comment but really this thread is just super dead and I'm out of places to vent. I used to post things like this all the time when it was more active and no one noticed. Once this next web lesson is finished I doubt you'll see me posting much more anyway.
>>

That's a big drop but you're still above a 3.0. How many classes are you taking in the spring? What's happening to screw up your focus on school or are you just burned out at this point?

Just a reminder that my last NEET community web lesson will be held tomorrow at 1pm EST. This lesson will focus on using Bootstrap to create responsive websites and will also include some advanced CSS that wasn't covered in the previous lessons. While this will be the last NEET community affiliated lesson I will still be continuing to do these lessons in the future on my own.

If you're interested in participating in the live portion of it you will need to have both teamspeak and teamviewer. I'll drop the teamspeak server IP and teamviewer meeting id in the thread an hour before starting.

I feel that I just need to send out more applications, just really put myself out there, ya know?
>>
>>16516396
I heard to go in and meet the manager after you sent your application, but I'm wondering if that's good advice. I feel like I'd just be wasting their time, or the only people there can't really help me.
>>
>>16516605
Calling typically suffices.
>>
>>16516196

It's hard losing a good friend but you can't let it eat away at you. You have to stay focused on yourself and your life. Fix the things that are within your ability to fix and just move on from the things that are out of your control. It's easier said than done but it's just life. People fade in and people fade out, it's the way world works. There will be other friends, I'm sure of it, so keep your chin up man.

I'm a firm believer that if you get yourself together the rest of your life will fall into place. Take the time you need to get your mind together though, don't try to force motivation. You have plenty of time before the spring semester to get yourself together.

This should be enough incentive for you to hold onto your job, if your connections can get you one.

The walking will help you lose more weight too, but you should keep at the weight loss before. Maybe you can lose enough before you start that walking won't be hard on your knees.

>>16511597

I understand where you're coming from since I did something similar myself to get the job I thought I wanted. If you don't have anything to do you should probably focus on working towards getting that job that you want. Self teaching in your free time will make college a lot easier once you get started.
>>
>>16517453
>self teaching
I kind of have problems with this, I'm more of a doer than a learner. I enjoy getting my hands on anything more than opening a book, that's why I could never learn to code
>>
>>16517460

I kind of thought that doers kind of learn as they go instead of learning first then applying later.

You don't need to open a book to learn how to code. I mean, there are some good books out there that are worth reading but you can get started with basic things pretty quickly with just a few hours of prep.

But eh, I'm not going to push coding because I know how taxing it can be once you have a job doing it.
>>
>>16517467
It's more about getting stuck then powering through then getting more stuck and then wasting an entire day trying to fix it and hating yourself until you either manage or give up. In some ways practice is just as important as theory but I can't deny there are a thousand tools and modifyers I wish I knew how to use

>>
>>16517481

hahaha, yeah I know how that goes, I've spent entire days fixing a simple issue that could have been fixed in five seconds. It's pretty frustrating but unfortunately it's part of the learning process. It helps having someone to work with or a friend who is interested in your hobby to make it not so painful.
>>
>>16517488
Spent an entire month fucking up and my work went from a 3/10 to an 8/10 because of a single tool I was supposed to know how to use all along. Could probably reach 10/10 if I knew a couple more too but I don't know what exactly is that I need to use
Not skilled enough to detect important mistakes but lucky enough to fix them anyways 9 out of 10 times

>>16517484

I had a friend who used to make money from drawing lewd furry art. I can't remember which site she used to sell them but it was an auction site of sorts kind of focused around that stuff. It wasn't enough to make a living but it was something at least. Have you tried googling around to find something like that?
