Nothing wrong with being a NEET. I wish I were still a NEET myself. At the end of the day, myself and many others work with the goal of being able to be NEET (only this time called retired) in the future. What fundamentally would be different about your life if you had a job other than the fact that you'll have to wake up early 5 days a week and spend 9 hours at a job you probably don't like? Do you think getting a job will suddenly make you normal and sociable? And once you start wageslaving you can't go back. If you were dependent on your parents as a NEET they'd probably kick you out if you got a job (proved you could) nx then quit and if you got bux pretty much same story. I would say I lucked out and got a decent job that I don't mind doing but honestly the only thing that changed is I have some money but I don't really spend all that much due to years of neetdom frugality so I just invest it in hopes of being able to retire early.

>> No.43434907

Most NEETs are constantly broke, so it's not really retirement, you can't pursue a good chunk of hobbies because of that, that's why most of them just rot in their rooms, so much that eventually even brushing your teeth ends up being seen as a chore

>> No.43437263

I was happy when I was a NEET. A few of my friends in my online circle are NEETs and they are happy or at least satisfied with their lives. You are right about NEETs being broke though. I think the mentality often crosses over anyway. I touched upon it already in my original post but once you're a neet you're accustomed to free or cheap entertainment and generally lifestyle. I'd argue it as a benefit (this mentality allows me to save over 90% of my income) but also as a reason why your life probably isn't gonna change much just because you got a job.
I think the whole prevalence of a "depressed neet" is largely s reverse correlation. They're not depressed because you're a NEET, they're a NEET because they're depressed. Although I think if you're already depressed being a NEET can make it worse. Being a wagecuck at least guarantees you get out of bed.

>> No.43438324

That's because NEETs don't take care of themselves. Although like >>43437263
says, depression is usually a factor which goes into creating a NEET to begin with. But if you're a NEET who doesn't clean their room in 5 years like myself, and is inside constantly then you're gong to go insane.
So I hope NEETs out there heed my words:
Clean your fucking rooms. Go outside regularly for walks be it in the day or night. Do some exercise. This will change your world if you already do none of that. Especially cleaning your living space. I get to be way more anti social now since I have a stove in my room, coffee maker etc. My room is basically a mini apartment at this point. I started getting chump change from drawing but it's extremely inconsistent. Government denied me of NEETbux.

I burned out both PS4 and Xbox One after letting them run constantly and constantly playing them. I'm fairly certain it was because of the nonestop use and that I had them on their max settings.

I wasn't on /jp/ so often over 14 or so years ago. Lucky Star and Shuffle were 2 of my favorite anime because I saw Konata really liked it. Shuffle is a very lonely fandom. It's also not even very good. It's a good memory.
Also everyone getting into it now are literal minors or idiots. Who just search "00s" core or something. It was a month or few months ago... I remember when I saw that Kaede was now "animecore" or some shit now and didn't even understand what it meant. It's all going downhill. Why the hell is an anime I had fond memories for only now going to reach it's peak in the west with a bunch of retarded kids. I've maintained the 2003/2004 figures for over a decade. They were my first figures. But there's no point in talking about this anime even on /jp/ because it just isn't relevant. And I'm dreading when the normals and the 3 year olds do make it relevant amongst themselves because then I'll just feel like an even bigger faggot.

Do you have a lot of pet hair at your place and do you smoke inside. Pet hair combined with the tar in smoke love to clog up the heatsinks in consoles. Lots of Xboxes and PlayStations have been rescued by simply opening them up and cleaning the heatsink.

I keep my place clean and my electronics last almost forever. My PS2 and PS3 still run great. My old gaming PC I built in 2010 still runs perfect too. It has air filters on all the intake fans and the inside is virtually spotless and has never been dusted since it was assembled in 2010.
I also run very nice HEPA filters in my HVAC of my house. I have allergies.

I've been a NEET for over 7 years now. I rent a tiny room in a house of strangers. It's a quiet town just outside of the big city. I think I am content with it, but not having much money for things is slowly becoming more of a problem. I have MDD (Major Depressive Disorder), so I get NEETbux. Some of my family members still have high expectations of me for some reason, and they're pressuring me into getting a job. I've been struggling with being active and just living my life to the fullest. Constant menhera and self-destruction. I am trying to not lose hope though, and maybe get a part-time job so I can save a little bit of money. I want to one day live completely alone, because I am very anti-social. If someone else is out in the kitchen for example, I cannot leave my room. I would rather stay hungry for hours than interact with others. I also want to adopt a cat and I obviously can't do it where I live now. It would be abusive of me to keep a cat in a tiny room. I still haven't gotten around to starting exercising or doing my Japanese reps. I've been a drifter this whole time, never finding my path or passion. I just hope I can find it in myself to do all these things and live a comfy life before I turn 30. Sorry for the long blogpost.

>That's because NEETs don't take care of themselves.

I see NEET and hikki used interchangeably a lot. A hikki is a NEET but a NEET isn't necessarily a hikki. A NEET is more or less just a regular person who isn't working or going to school for any number of reasons, whether it be circumstance. personal choice, or something else entirely. They can still clean their place, exercise, and go outside when the mood strikes them. There is no crippling anxiety or fear preventing them from doing such things unlike a hikki.

for the past month, something's been going on with my ISP and my internet has been very unreliable and intermitent. It seems like it's worst in the depths of the night which as a NEET is when I'm awake. What am I supposed to do without internet access for hours at a time, I keep calling them and they keep saying their "technicians are working on it', then they send me an email saying "good news it's fixed!" but it isn't fucking fixed.

For exercise I highly, highly recommend going to a gym (for me at least, it was massively more enjoyable than home exercises) and getting a partner to do it with you. You will both feel accountable to each other and that will boost the motivation and discipline for both of you massively.
Not sure what you can do if you don't have any friends. Maybe get a trainer? I'm sure you would prefer not to deal with some stranger, but having some with you really makes such a big change. Maybe you can start with one and then wean yourself off of him.

>> No.43475495

My internet goes out a lot too. I figured it was just from accessing pirating sites for anime. I noticed if I don't use them my internet doesn't go out. But the one time I do go on one, later that day or during the night my internet goes out for about an hour or over and over again for about an hour if I keep resetting it. I thought it was weird they deny doing it themselves but yeah. I don't know much about that stuff it's just what I noticed. You probably have a totally different ongoing issue but it got really bad for me to the point where I was going hours without internet and I was very confused.
Also yes I still use pirating sites but only sometimes. All I hear about nowadays is torrenting and I never learned how that worked lol. In my day we had megashare and what do you call them. Just ignore and x out the redirects and all that right. Anyways now I can hardly pirate anything these days. I have streaming services but they don't have any of the good shit obviously.
Also I hate the gym. Although very good of you to encourage socializing and going outside itt. But I've kept myself in shape and healthy my years indoors by exercising regularly inside properly and taking nightly walks.

If you're NEET never let it go. Try to learn a skill or get an education so when it all crumbles down you aren't an autist out of their element doing something that is killing you. Please use that time for something fun that you enjoy and might be able to market, because time and a clear mind in a wagie world is a valuable thing. Use your moonrune language skills to learn other languages like spanish, make youtube videos and learn to edit and be a video guy, apply your skills at modding and doujin game development into your own projects. Please do something, anon. In fact, if you have the capacity to work and live with your parents, that's almost a cheat code for success because cost of living/rent is so outrageous in this day and age.

jesus well goodluck with that anon. I definitely sorta think that if you're just a NEET who isn't at least trying a little bit to secure your future in some way you're kinda stupid.

More often than not, unless they have some other kind of money lying around. There are also many stories in recent years about people getting laid off or becoming unable to keep up with the rising cost of living who are forced to move back in with their parents as well, though those people aren't always NEET and might still go to a job from their parent's home.

Personally, I think mass automation can't come soon enough. I want to see the societal repercussions of the lower class being made obsolete.

I hate the gym, but i know that i need the training for my overall health. Going there is such a chore, definitely the anxiety spike of my day; however, been 10 months in, i can tell it does wonders for your physical health: It disperses a lot of the brain fog and allows me to be more productive in scholar tasks. So, i do recommend the gym to my fellow hikkis, but make sure you have a cope mechanism set ready to deal with all the circumstances that the new routine entails.

>> No.43482168

In my experience, the depression you feel as a NEET is permanent part of modern life. Most NEETs have some means that barely supports them, and most forms of employment that a NEET is eligible for still barely supports them so their standard of living doesn't change or actually becomes worse despite working and being a "productive member of society". It's much harder to crawl out of that hole, both financially and mentally, when you have astronomical bills, no time, and physical exhaustion on top of everything. Life for a poorfag wagie is hard already, but it's so much worse for someone who gets acclimated to a NEET lifestyle with next to no social or personal skills. The transition from like 20hrs of free time to 4hrs or less a day makes you want to put a gun in your mouth.

most forms of consooming mainly reading and music
I used to go through like 3 month long phases where i'd listen to classical music all day, I also consumed enough japanese content including anime/manga that I can comfortably read novels and listen to podcasts now, but I love english reading too, particularly 20th century fiction before it became anti-fun. I used to read a lot of non fiction (almost entirely history, especially the bronze age mediterranean and mesopotamia and medieval western europe) but for some reason fell out of that and only read fiction now
Also I used to cook nice meals at least once a day. now that I work full time I only do that on the weekends and just do really basic quick stuff on weekdays, sadly. also used to go for long walks almost every day, I exercised every day. maybe you need an aristocratic soul that appreciates the finer things to be a happy NEET, but it seems like a no brainer to me that fun things are fun. I still enjoy my 3-5 hours per day of freedom, but I did like being a NEET better. of course my lifestyle was totally bankrolled by mom which is why it eventually had to end. also, I have never had a social life, not sure if that is a factor. oh yeah, just remembered, I used to love video games but don't really play them anymore.

It is pointless to live if you contribute nothing to society, and I believe this strongly. There are a lot of ways to do this as a NEET, or to work towards not being a NEET, and therefore doing so. I stopped being a NEET a month ago and I have been less depressed and immediately made more (autistic) friends. It can be pretty isolating because I grew up on different places online (here) but I guess it is all. Most people who are "like me" are horrible people.

I'm a fakeNEET. I have a university degree and I work but only for about 10 hours each week. The work, which I believe is called vending in the US, is repetitive and unstimulating. It pays fairly well and has the benefit of being autonomous, so the supervisor I report to is more of a regional manager and someone I see rarely, but that's all. They actually offered me to be the regional manager a couple of times, but I politely declined as I'm not ready for that sort of responsibility.

I think I have ADHD or something similar. I really dislike self-diagnosing but the waitlist to see a professional here is 5 months minimum for private, 9+ for public. Many of the problems I've experienced since high school can be explained when viewed through that lens. It feels really awful to remember that at my university they had posters up decrying forms of discrimination, yet offering me no help even when I was consistently failing classes and handing assignments in late, or not at all. I'm trying to learn Japanese but I find that I struggle to concentrate on tasks for more than maybe 30 minutes at a time, if that. I can't enjoy most video games anymore for this reason as well as the helpless frustration at being matched with useless players when playing online team-based matchmaking games. I feel useless myself in real life. I'm probably going to try and go to language school in Japan later this year or early next year, otherwise just drop out of work or an hero.

I did however manage to start drawing recently but again, I can't concentrate on it for longer than brief periods, and only when I'm experiencing intense boredom do I really feel like picking up a pen.

I think this is because they're largely judgement-free places. We're all more or less, or have been, in the same boat and there's no implicit looking-down-upon people who have lives like this the way there is when discussing it in a more public place with normals.

I hate having panic attacks because I feel like an inconvenience to people. I had one last Monday and couldn't get out of bed; my mother ended up coming home to give me a hug and she's already busy enough at her job.

>> No.43504799

I happen to agree with you, and I say that as someone who contributes nothing and has no desire to contribute anything. I am generalizing based on my own thoughts but a "true" NEET is someone who chose to reject all forms of purpose in favor of a selfish life that is focused almost entirely inwards, shamelessly taking everything and giving back nothing. There is no point to us or our actions and that is how we prefer it. To have no purpose is to have no obligations and to have no obligations is to have no stress. To me, there is no greater joy to be had in life than that feeling.

In my own case, that's not something I really place much value on. I prefer my interpersonal relationships to be surface level and not much deeper than that. As for what there is to do, that is a question that only the individual can answer. The entire point is to enjoy yourself, after all.

I am probably inadvertently describing a mental illness but maybe that's what it takes to truly enjoy the lifestyle of a NEET.

>> No.43506335

that's how I feel about myself as well but I wish I had more in-depth relationships, personally. but I know something happened, wires got crossed at conception, in the womb, or during the critical pre-k socialization phase that made me like this. I can talk to people normally, even laugh together, etc., but I never form any real bonds. And though I don't suffer in loneliness (couldn't have been so happy as a NEET otherwise) I do feel sad that I'm missing fulfilling, normal human experiences. But I feel they're just not for me, or rather, I'm not for them.

I used to post here in my early 20s. I was a hikikomori and basically put my life on hold for 5 years.
At one point I decided I'd had enough, got a degree, a driving license, a job, and lost some weight. I felt better about myself for a while, but I still hated interacting with people and was just as lonely as I'd ever been, even though I was surrounded by people all day long.
It was really draining, and a few years ago I quit my job and I've been living off my savings ever since. I'm now in my 30s and check this board again occasionally. I dread the day I have to look for work again, although the generalization of work from home is a blessing that will hopefully make things less painful. I have no plans, but realistically this on-and-off NEETing experience seems to be what's in store for me in the future.
I mostly like being a NEET, and the lack of free time is the single most annoying about working, but if I'm honest with myself I don't make nearly as good a use of my time as I should, now that I have plenty to spare again. I have a lot of projects progressing at a snail's pace because I don't have the discipline to work on them a few hours everyday -- and I should, because completing those projects is the best thing I'm doing with my life at the moment. That's why the first few months of NEETing are the best, as you truly appreciate the value of the ample free time you now have at your disposal. But beating yourself up about it is useless, all we can do is take it easy and strive to be a little bit better. Also, I'm a little bit confused about the options field that seems to have replaced email.

>> No.43506990

I suppose I had the good fortune of having experienced a bit of those human experiences when I was younger, before deciding to shut myself off from them indefinitely. I don't have to wonder what that is like and that is a great advantage when it comes to this kind of lifestyle.

I am completely worthless as a person. I have no skills, no talents, and no goals, nor have I ever had any desire to obtain any of those things at any point in my life. Even has a kid, I didn't want to be anything when I grew up. Not even something as lofty as an astronaut or as childish as a dinosaur. I was content with simply existing and enjoying each day to the best of my ability. I believed that life didn't need to be more complicated than that and I still do.

You would think that being able to recognize my own objective lack of worth would be cause to despair but it isn't for me. I have an incredibly high sense of self worth and pride despite my lack of anything resembling worth to anyone. I have all the value in the world to myself and that is all that matters to me. I am content because I am exactly who I was meant to be, yet I am in the wrong place to be this person. In a perfect world, I would have the funds to live this truth without being a burden on anyone or having them worry for my future but this isn't an perfect world, and that is a great personal tragedy. The only thing I can do is curse the cosmic mistake that placed me so far away from the necessary wealth and buy lottery tickets in an attempt to fix that mistake. Foolish as I may be for resorting to such gambles, those gambles are the only path available to me so I have no choice but to take it. All I know is that I will not compromise the person that I am to save my own life and if it comes to it, I will choose death over compromise. I respect the people who have to perform menial labor but that is not who I am and choosing death over that method of survival is my choice. Hopefully it will not come to that and though my chances of success are so slim that they may as well be non existent, I am an optimist as well as a narcissist. I have all the confidence in the world that the stars will eventually align just for me. I just hope it will be sooner rather than later.

Yeah you have good points. Guess I was giving more credit than I should.
Actually I was remembering when a little sibling got into anime. He got one of those mini computers that were small but still fat and clunky. I remember having to dote on him though because he was like 12 and didn't know shit. Eventually every time he booted it up it would just spam porn ads on his screen and he hid that from me for a long time. But I remember burning anime and series onto disks. It's weird to think all that was like 14, 15 years ago. Anyways now we have USB. Things don't feel that different in that respect other than these days I'm not burning anything onto a disk anymore. That's something I want to get back into doing though if I'll be honest. Anyways guess I've gone all simple-minded these days or maybe I was always that way. Now I'm a NEET going on those 15 years about come to think of it. I remember I was burning Destiny Deoxys for my little brother one day and pulling up Arby n' the Chief for him to watch on YT. Now I'm here and it just feels like less effort than before to just pull up anything online. I'll just go back to my NEETing now.

Fun anecdote I want to share with you NEETs: I actually worked in the Amazon wagie cage before.

Work fucking sucks not because it requires effort, or because it's "hard", but because it's completely involuntary renting of your soul. There's work that I'd LOVE to do, but there are barriers that prevent you for going into those careers like education, connections, or experience that you can't just attain sometimes. So you get stuck doing something you absolutely don't want to do with most of your waking life. Normies and bosses and the rest of the society seems to not process that you're a wage slave and fundamentally not happy. It's like other people work because they're bored, instead of people who actually have passions and interests working to be able to have a couple hours of peace doing what they actually enjoy every week without becoming homeless. The fact that it seems like the majority of Americans enjoy menial labor leads me to believe they or I have some kind of serious brain rotting disease.

I don't mean to sound like a communist, but look around. Look at entry level job listings. How many of those jobs ACTUALLY help people, and how much is just superfluous bullshit for the middle/upper class? The amount of actual labor/resources required by society for it to function is a fraction of what gets demanded, and the idea that hundreds of millions of people have to "earn" their ability to live by playing into the luxurious delusions of the upper classes which are fundamentally not necessary for life, liberty, or genuine prosperity is fucked up to me. I have zero expectation to own a home or be able to comfortably support a family, in fact my expectation is for everything to get worse. I wish I could be a NEET.

I can agree with that. There are plenty of people out there who work hard everyday yet feel happy and fulfilled because they are doing something that they love. Of course not everyone can be so lucky. Like you said, the people who are unable to do what they want to do for a variety of reasons outnumber them by far.

>The fact that it seems like the majority of Americans enjoy menial labor leads me to believe they or I have some kind of serious brain rotting disease.

They absolutely don't. What you see of this online is "grind" culture and it's nothing more than a cope to keep them going. They will never admit to it but they know this for themselves. If they lose the delusion that each day they spend working is a step towards wealth then they have nothing.

I don't get why families treat their NEETs that way, unless you are just a total asshole. 20 is still insanely young. Whole life could be completely changed if they really cared and reached out to figure out what you were about. And in that case I think it's perfectly fine for someone to be a NEET at 20. Families always just make everything worse by never acknowledging their existence and only ever making the same awkward small talk

I don't necessarily, in fact I'd love to NEET and was for ~11 years. Not once did I blame others around me (family) though for having to get a job, considering the entire reason I didn't have to work for so long was because they were the ones working & providing for me.
You're not selfish for not slaving away. You're selfish for blaming others all because you "don't want to work".

>None of these people would benefit from me getting a job nor does it harm them that I dont.
And what if everybody took this viewpoint? How would you NEET then if nobody's there to do the shit that needs to be done? If your family, who I assume you live with, took this viewpoint, how would you be able to be on the internet all day unless you abuse NEETbux? You work for money, you can't do shit without money.

If you have actual mental issues preventing it/making it hard for you, look into NEETbux. If you're able & willing to work, then accept that you're a leech & stop blaming others for telling you to work. Yeah, in an ideal world none of us would have to work, I'd fucking love that, but we're not in an ideal world. You can either accept reality or end up killing yourself one day when you have to make that decision.

Heres the thing, there are people that actually enjoy working.
Most jobs are fake and we could easily live without them without even a slight reduction in quality of life, and for the rest people would volunteer.
I am always surprised by this, but there really are a lot of people that would work even without financial incentive because they somehow enjoy it.

I lived as a NEET for over a decade because I enjoy being a shut-in pseudohermit. If I had enough money to retire for the rest of my life I'd go back to it without any hesitation and absolutely no regrets. Can't blame anyone for trying to escape from the rat race. Concepts like the supposedly noble idea of contributing to society (as a completely replaceable nobody who won't affect the system in any significant way with their absence) is such an obvious wagecog cope that I really don't know how people still fall for this shit. You have a job because you have to pay for the things you need, and you're doing it for your own personal benefit whether you realize it or not. You wouldn't keep doing your job for free and even if you did, you wouldn't choose to be dependent on it to survive. Finding an "enjoyable" job is less preferable to being able to do it on your own time and your own terms. No need to add layers of delusion, it's simply a necessity.

Me too. It's nice and comfy, only my 2 NEET friends have my phone number. Everyone left over from when I deleted my social media has to contact me through email. LOL.
I don't like a lot of people. Life is way more comfy when you just start ignoring people you always secretly hated and couldn't tolerate. I'm lonely. On PURPOSE. Anonymous interactions are the best!!!

They either decided to play normalfag and get a job while condemning their old hobbies (/jp/ adjacent ones), or became Discord Kittens basically prostituting themselves to buy games on Steam from other Discord mods and therefore ignoring anyone who doesn't have money or also do the same.
I know people change but it's always either or extreme...I just wanted to stay cozy with my frens

It's really just one guy I exchange a few messages with once or twice a week. I used to sometimes play games with this other guy I knew from way back but he's obviously a failed normalfag who spends all day on discord so it's kind of painful keeping contact with him anymore.

I'm glad I have one guy to talk to who is satisfied with the NEET lifestyle though

Okay well, Naruto, Dragon Ball were normalfag well by the late 2000s, Deaeth Note was always pretty normalfag but that one was okay.
I was a deep south Anon in that time. In the deep south I, was relentlessly given hate and had no one for miles to enjoy any of it with.
But now in my hometown normies walk around with anime on their shirts. I think it's a little better. I have mixed feelings about it. But now I don't get hate crimed for liking Japan.
I remember in 2010 or so it must have been. Walking into a MTG tournament and there's like 9 people. Then there was the 1 guy with a playing mat of Louise from Zero no Tsukaima. Some unknown anime girl on his card sleeves. Back then where I come from, that much was enough to make you feel a lot less alone in the world. And that was only 2010. If you know, you know I guess. It was hell up until then.
I should have just moved away when I turned 20. I thought the whole world was like my town.
But since before the pandemic, 2019 I think it was I've started to be a NEET. I was previously in 2014 and even before then.

In this guys case he also drew weird fetish porn so for every picture he got a Steam game.

If you lived 300 years ago, you wouldn't have things like 4chan or anime, so you'd have to be more active, hanging out with people, working, pursuing active hobbies. This would force you to change and evolve as a person.
But in modern times, you have 4chan, which never really changes significantly. You can sit in front of your computer now and browse 4chan or watch anime just like you could 15 years ago. There's no growth.

>> No.43592131

kind of a retard if he doesn't think NEETs haven't been around since the dawn of man. At most there were economic periods which made it harder to be a NEET but not necessarily any era of man which NEETs and hikkis simply did not exist.

>kind of a retard if he doesn't think NEETs haven't been around since the dawn of man.

They most certainly did but they were often aristocrats or similar. Sure aristocrats had their own duties and weren't completely idle all the time but they did not compare to the harder lives of a commoner. Such a lifestyle was out of reach for the common man for a very long time.

Yeah, more a consequence of the industrial revolution. I guess it really was somewhat of a tragedy for the human race despite the conveniences we have now. I can understand how the current form of NEETs came about. I don't want to participate in such a rigorous society either. I want what medieval farmers had.

>> No.43592540

I certainly dont want that, but I think work being the be all end all is very unhealthy for everyone involved.
Id rather get back to 1960s standards of wealth and income, as it stands right now work is both emotionally unrewarding and a waste of time monetarily.
You either make enough money to really do what you want to and buy what you want or you might aswell be making nothing at all.
That paycheck to paycheck lifestyle is the worst, imagine working everyday and having absolutely nothing to show for it except a car that really the bank owns untill you payed it off and a house thats also really the banks, and a ton of consumer garbage that no one actually needs.

I know ragging on capitalists is a big Reddit meme but they really cracked the code when it came to constructing a society that benefits them. It's all the way it is by design and any attempt to change that will be blocked so I highly doubt it's going to get any better from here.
