There's a part of me that wants to agree with you, but then i remember how miserable winter and atumn were for me. Personally seeing nature during summer and spring is my favourite part, looking at trees without leaves makes me not depressed per se, but it does sour my mood somewhat. Last winter barely looked like one, next to no snow untill a week or two after christmas, just cold and lifeless. I have to agree on the temperature, I thought I'd be handling it better after having no problems during holidays abroad but I guess it has to do with the fact I sit on my ass all day. The best temperature for me occurs quite rarely, its when its just warm enough for just a shirt, a little bit cool with somewhat humid air. I guess it occurs in late summer/early atumn after rainfall.

I never thought I'd be sad as a NEET, but the depression is finally kicking in. All my old internet friends have either moved on, or got married/relatively successful lives, and it feels a lot harder to make friends like that now versus 20 years ago, people seem a lot different and stuff like Discord is increasingly absorbing communities to the point where if you're not in one of those cliques finding decent people to do anything with is next to impossible. Even on /jp/ I see more anons begrudgingly admit to using it for different things, though I guess that could have been all the crossboarders we got over the past year or so.

I've not had anybody to talk to or play games with in years. Shit's really lonely man, it feels like there's a hole in my heart. I miss my old friends.

I'm not a NEET, but I basically live like one.

The government pays me to go to university. I can live very comfortably off of it.
I wish I had better self-control. I end up eating out like 3-4 times a week, even though when I was working I used to make my own meals nearly every day.
I also find that I buy a lot of shit (manga, figures, games) that I never used to.

I've managed to save up a few thousand from university payments, but I really should exercise better self control.

I think that kind of stuff is an anathema though. Years ago, when Discord had just started it and nobody really used it/it didn't have a bad reputation one of the groups I was in decided to do a complete jump to it. I hated it, it's like the worst part of forums rolled into one. All it was was a handful of big egos talking to themselves and everybody else "reacting" to them. And you can see what everybody's doing, all the time. It's not like the sanctity MMOs had where if somebody just stopped logging in one day that was it, it lended the relationships a bit of a unique feeling I think, because if you actually managed to get to know somebody outside the game then usually that'd mean you made a good friend. I think in-game discussion gave way to more creative conversations as well.

I do it first thing in the morning and don't allow myself to use electronics until I'm finished (unless it's for music.) otherwise I'll lazily put it off until just before bed and have to zombie my way through it. I also lift a 20 pound weight 100 times on each arm which is a lot easier to do than pushups. This makes any recreational activities feel a whole lot more rewarding.

I got approved for perma bux in Denmark a couple years ago. I was dysfunctional my whole life. Rarely showed up to school and just fought people when I did. Diagnosed with an obscure version of autism. Dropped out of every program they tried to put me in. Nobody in the system knew what to do with me anymore. You have to go to a meeting with a bunch of social workers to get approved. I was initially denied but I told everyone at the meeting I was going to kill myself. I wasn't kidding and that ended up being the silver bullet. They took a couple of months to reconsider and I got it. Since then I've learned how to be happy.

Rude but probably true.
I have more than a few online acquaintances which fall into this category, where I have no reason to push them away and am generally amiable, while they tend to lack any attractive qualities even for casual discussion. Generally just know them from being in the same chatroom now or years ago. Humorless apart from cynicism, no real OC or works of interest, and lack passion apart from maybe consuming porn or vidya. Those who can acquire/afford drugs generally lean on them for escapism, booze being the most common.

This doesn't make them "bad people," but they probably won't change their ways much if they haven't in the past 10-15 years, and if they ever end up being a source of negativity in my life I will likely just passively cut ties. I have a pretty long fuse, but it's happened at least twice. Looking at you tokiko

Just consistently being a little interesting, mutually helpful, amiable, etc. makes a big difference in casual online relationships.

The cynicism is the one that gets me. I lost a friend because I didn't enjoy hating things like he did. All our conversations seemed to be centered on things he disliked. I notice a lot of young guys seem to think that's a cool attitude to have. It's sad because they end up disabling their own capacity to enjoy things.

That doesn't stop people from posting, you know, muck like "kys," "go back to X," etc. Anons are generally thick-skinned enough to just ignore that if they're coming here in the first place, and whatever public shame they receive is anonymous. Moreover, it begs the question of why exactly (You) belong here when he does not. Not that it really matters, but you seem to act like it does.

From experience: Ask her if she can set you up with a night shift. Those generally have minimal interaction with people, and you are given light/little supervision and a lot of time the complete tasks at your pace.
I've known several NEETs that have had to take up a job, and specifically night-shift security guard is one of the most bearable.
>I have a mild inclination towards art and have sold some of my drawings before but the idea of having to build a following, set up payment options and keeping up with commissions seems like a huge chore as well and I'd rather not bother with that at all
Assuming you enjoy drawing in your free time, my advice would be to try the security guard position first to have a certain income to work with, and then experiment with comissions/patronage/etc. at a steady pace.
It's not a huge chore to set up unless you are locked out of the convenient routes of transaction for comissions, Paypal/Venmo being the most common for USD. The bigger chores are:
>Fulfilling commissions to the expectations of the payee
>Gathering a large enough following to make it lucrative
>Avoiding burnout
Even if you have art people are willing to consistently pay you decently for, it will just take luck/time to get enough traction for people to specifically go to you for their requests.
While there's nothing wrong in doing this, and could be very worthwhile, trying to do this *IN PLACE* of getting a constant source of income in the near future would probably just be a red herring.

The anon who goes into the NEET thread and declares he is a NEET, while also alluding to the fact that he still tries to maintain IRL friends, is not shitposting. It's neutral, genuine post that is not high quality, but is not intentionally low quality either. Even if their post rubs people the wrong way, that alone doesn't mean they are intentionally shitposting. Even if the concept of someone having IRL friends and caring about them to some degree is inherently irritating to some, that doesn't make it unacceptable.
If his seeming normality is more important than whatever else they may have to say about the topic, the problem does not lie with them.
>you can go back to where ever you came from since you are too new to see the obvious
I think I see the obvious - that that poster has a dissonant tone that you feel needs to be rebuked - regardless of the fact I've been here for over a decade. And sure, argue that I haven't - it's baseless, and I wouldn't waste your time doing the same to you. I don't think having proof that I've posted on /jp/ for X time in Y threads is going to actually be of much relevance to you if I was able to do that and still come out with the view that that post is acceptable, if not that interesting.

I think at one time I would've agreed more, but over time I've found that anons shutting down others for ignoring some shibboleth or being off-tone to be just as worthless as whoever they are replying to. Even if you don't like [thing on this board], you're not going to make them go away unless they're blatantly breaking a rule. And THAT is something I've definitely picked up over the years. The best you can do is go into a war of attrition to see how miserable you can make discussion for them until they leave - which is intentionally making things worse for others, unlike >>35382748 .

>him being here instead of his ghetto is him intentionally making things worse for others
For you? I imagine.
For me? I don't like them, but much like with 3D idols or kancolle back in the day, the most low-quality, uninteresting, trollish posters were those who would go into threads unrelated to it, trying to smoke those topics out and antagonize them rather than just not discussing them. It signals that whoever is posting cares more about trying to get other people who don't care about stuff you care for to cease existing in your spaces, rather than ignoring them or moving to a new space. That's what you're doing.
And since I assume you're not new, you've seen the period from 2016-2020 where whatever jaypees had done to prevent from posting did fuck-all to stop them? And the only thing that did actually got some posters to move was the positive move of creating a new space in which they could post? Which probably came about because of its popularity, rather than because some people on /jp/ hated it a lot?

And here's the thing - I don't like watching vtubers. Which is why I don't fling that label in the fucking NEET thread like it means anything other than deflecting from the fact that there is no good reason >>35382748 needed to be put in their place beyond your own personal feelings.

My opinion is that responses to bad posts and arguments are just more bad posts. They're not fun for anyone. If you want to fight back against bad posts you can make good posts. A good post doesn't have to be a major contribution. Something pleasant to read and talk about is more than enough.

Getting livable NEETbux in the UK is not easy unless you show that you are a complete invalid (unable to perform basic functions like getting dressed without the assistance of others). For instance, they cut my disability money down to almost nothing (something like £20 a month) because aspies function well enough in day-to-day life, but not enough to participate in society.

It's more like a reverse Faustian bargain.

I'm going to be you in a week working on ASP.NET backend shit after neeting for years. Any advice on how to not get immediately fired for incompetency?

Just do your job.
If you work as a back end developer, you are literally a maintenance guy, so don’t worry, you only need to work when something breaks
Be on your computer, pay attention if something come up
But in order to not burn out, try to have your own projects
Read, draw, shitpost, but whatever you do, don’t leave your “work” station
Also, be sure to learn more coding on your own, because you probably going to need them.
