The trick is to get a part time job for something with nightshifts, befriend normies, and find out what you want to do while you're doing your generals. The biggest mistakes to make if you want to live a comfy life (assuming you're staying single) is to get your associates degree as soon as possible when you aren't transferring, and to jump at the first place you can get a job at with seemingly reasonable hours and good benefits. Also salary jobs are usually bad unless you know what you're getting into or have a planned way out in the future.

Ideally what will happen is you'll finish in like 3 years and have the aforementioned part time job at something like a cargo yard, security guard, or night time stocking at a department store. You'll have a couple years at wherever to put on your resume and the fact you've got an associates means you're qualified and skilled enough.

It's applied maths, problem solving sort of thing.
I'm currently doing 'Mathematical Methods for Physics' and 'Network Theory', which is basically electronics without the fun making circuits yourself part.

The first one is basically preparation for particle and quantum physics later. Most of the questions are very 'raw math' and less about interpreting the question and more about interpreting Python and suggesting what the output would be, or just doing the question and not second guessing.

The second is more about interpreting the question and is more wordy, but it's largely still maths.

I was a 29 year old NEET just four months ago. September-December last year was one of the worst periods in my life; I was still dealing with the wreckage of an ended (attempted?) relationship, the loss of the one job I thought I knew how to do, and the loss of my last grandparent.

Now I have a well-enough-paying job, and although it's time consuming, I feel more happy and less lonely than I have in years. It takes some effort and endurance, but things can turn around.

I failed my college 6 months ago after 2 years of college (I studied mechatronics) and I've keeping myself alive with a parttime job since then. It's only 8 1/2 hours a week but is enough for now. The reason I failed college was because I just can't seem to motivate myself to study. I feel like I'm wasting my potential seeing as other students learn a lot and don't do much better. But the work as an engineer seemed worse and worse each time people told about it.
I'm trying to go back into college (my country hasn't immensely high costs for it), but I'm not sure what to study exactly, everything that isn't hard science seems to lead into poor paying jobs. It's really true that when you are a NEET or close to it, you do less and less productive. Fuck, I spent 2 hours masturbating today. You seem like you can't get anything done.

>> No.13284927

Sounds a lot like me. I was an engineering student that couldn't get the motivation to study and flunked out of college. Also spent 2 hours masturbating today. Though I'm lucky I have parents with good income, so I was able to get into a cheaper local college, but I still don't know what to do. I thought being a helicopter pilot might be interesting but apparently it's not good enough for my parents so they won't pay for flight school and a friend of my mom is one and it seems like he hates and regrets it, despite making 6 figures. So now I'm dreamless. And there's a lot of pressure on me because my older brother is an even bigger failure than me. Now I'm just trying to find any career I can do that won't make me hate getting up every morning.

>> No.13284955

Im no wisened old man, but tell your parents to fuck off if theyre going to control what you do for the rest of your life. If money is an issue, I dont know what the government assistance scheme is in your country, but you can probably get a student loan or similar.

My cousin's friends parents wanted him to be a doctor, and he went with his desire of becoming a pilot. He loves his job and it pays well as well as granting quite a bit of time off. It also grants free travel, in a way, if youre the sort that likes traveling.

>> No.13284958

The hardest part is dealing with your parents and telling them that you are a failure, although for me the confusion is added to it that my mum thinks I'm gay half the time, since I have no gf, but she doesn't react to all the loli douinshi I have. Atleast in worst case I can go back to the army.

>> No.13284982

you let your mum see your loli doujinshi?

>> No.13284999

Well it's their money so I can't really blame them for not letting me use it for what I want. And true there are loans but it's $60 grand minimum, but the first several years of being a pilot you make shit pay as an instructor building up flight hours. Being in debt for years scares me. And I guess they can seem a little controlling when they threatened to cut off all funding and kick me out when I brought up the idea of dropping out. Not like it's doing me any good when I'm not any closer to graduating than I was a year ago. I do feel bad about that, though.

I am kind of thankful my brother's such a fuck up, though. My parents spent $150,000 on his education for 6 years and all he has to show for it are a couple of DUIs and getting busted trying to buy illegal drugs from an undercover cop. Makes my failings seem not as bad.

When I look at it, I am pretty lucky compared to many people in this thread but it still feels pretty shitty.

>> No.13285035

I'm a 4th year computer science student. I'll probably graduate in a few months after a few more hardships on the way. I went into the field thinking I could do anything, but I am natively rather bad at maths and I felt it impact me negatively whenever I tried to do what I'd call more interesting: graphics, AI, and such. I can't deal with the soul-rending drudgery of regular work - I realized it after having a regular job as a web developer for a while. So I'm going to be trying to make and sell video games after I graduate. Everyone's telling me I shouldn't, but I don't see myself doing much else except being a pure NEET - which is what I'd be if I didn't need money, anyway. I might go back to the really boring stuff if I fail. I hope to live as much of a comfy life as possible.

I wouldn't have believed in getting this far just four months ago, that's for sure. Dealing with family infighting in the wake of a death through a growing alcohol addiction followed by months of therapy and labour market readjustment hijinx felt more like a social realist novel than a fairy tale, though.

I don't think there are any GED equivalents here, but you can try to get admission to Finnish uni if you have abroad education/training that would make you eligible for uni in that country, the problem is that GED is not an education but a certification.

I think we have something like NVQ, but it takes two years to complete, well that is better still than three, I guess.

Thanks for the ideas, I think I need to reserve time for some education advisor or something.

I've been a NEET for over 11 years and I am 31 years old right now.
I will probably only last one more year with the remaining money I have, so this is pretty much getting to be the end of the line for me.
My depression has been getting a lot worse lately as well, as I find myself spiraling down with all sorts of aspects. Even indulging into deep depressing movies like Requiem for a Dream seem to be my day to day habit lately.
Thankfully I can still kill a lot of time by funposting here and watching my Animes, but at the end of the day, I know what lies in store.
