For years I've had the idea of making youtube videos, primary anime reviews. One of the main reasons being the slim hope I'd be able to at least make 'some' income off it as unlikely as that might be to happen. Well I finally took the plunge and went ahead with it. I wanted to at least get a few vids out before posting about it here. I should warn though that they've been pretty horrible so far and as such you shouldn't expect much. Should come as no surprise that someone who has very little interaction with people offline would have trouble speaking so the videos can be a little numbly, for that I apologize.

My channel can be found here for anyone curious.

If reviews don't give you any income, try getting into thr ASMR market, seriously.

Don't you have to be insanely good as guy to get viewers?
>> No. 30420 [Edit]
That's true, also probably have to buy an expensive binural mic and make sure your background noise is very quiet. Perhaps it would be better to go after the 'unintentional asmr' niche of things that weren't originally intended to give tingles or that's not the main goal, but it still does. If you pretend like you aren't doing asmr on purpose, but make your videos relaxing, long form and about interesting topics people will tune in. Think Bob Ross for example, even though the focus is on painting, really you tune in for Bob Ross and his relaxing voice and general atmosphere. You could be the otaku Bob ross

Getting friend requests is really embarrassing! I might be pretty good at the game and sometimes pull off some pretty impressive things at times, but I'm not sure if I should be sent friend requests, especially since I don't accept them most of the time.

Mou, it's so embarassing!

You have to start by adding something else into your daily routine besides just being on the computer the whole day.

I realized at one point that my entire life was being played out online. I broke it up into parts, but it was all on my computer. I might play games for a while, lurk 4chan for a while, and watch anime for a while. That's how I broke up my entire day.

You have to start bringing yourself back to reality one piece at a time. Start going for a walk every day. Mow the law once a week. Check out a thrift shop once in a while. Go to the library once a week.

The point is to add something small, piece by piece into your days that are not getting on your computer. I don't expect your first step to be getting a job, but that really is the final frontier. It gives you money and something that you feel obligated to do. It gives you a purpose.

After a while, you'll come to a point where you realize that your real life is in real life, and you'll feel happier because of it.

Do you ever feel strange things from inanimate objects?

I don't like to look at my Rosalina amiibos or have them next to my computer much because I can actually feel hatred coming from them.

How often do you bathe, /ot/? What about shaving? Do you fit into the stereotype that suggests NEETs and hikikomori have poor personal hygiene?

How can you fight in the NEET uprising if you're too busy in the bathroom?
>> No. 30408 [Edit]
I hate feeling dirty, greasy, etc so I shower everyday. I wash my hair every other day, and shave about once or twice a week, as I also dislike the feeling of facial hair.

I think you are supposed to shower or at least have a quick rinse before entering the bath, but it seems no one does this.
>> No. 30409 [Edit]
In Area 11 it's common practice to shower off before entering the bath, and that's why family members will share the same bath water. I've never heard of anyone doing this in America though.

I recently learned japanese and have been checking 2chan out lately. I have no reference to what it was previously but it feels more like what 4chan used to be with its own unique twist of course. I think it's the western culture and concepts of "memes", "shitposting" and more recently template posting that negatively affected the western internet in general.

i'm huge hoozuki no reitsu fan, does that count?
>> No. 30380 [Edit]
If stuff like psychic powers count, then yeah, I used to be. When I was young I used to think telekinesis and whatnot were possible and tried to practice every day in the hopes of getting something to happen. Obviously nothing ever did. I never was into rituals and summoning and stuff like that, though. Just the vain hope of getting to move stuff and shoot fireballs with my mind.

I've messed around with it from time to time but I'm really lazy about it.

Occasionally I'll dip my toes in but I've never quite been able to fully turn off my skepticism which fucks over deeper practice. It's important to have in this stuff, otherwise you end up an unhinged schizophrenic, but at the same time it keeps you from achieving much.

I just slowly lost interest over time after getting frustrated with spotty results but that's what happens when you don't put much effort in.

Currently I'm studying other areas (philosophy, history) before returning.

A bit, but I never really went deeper than reading shitty websites about it. One day I'd like to read something from one those medieval-Renaissance era alchemists such as John Dee, Paracelsus and Mirandola. Blatavsky seems interesting too, as well as Steiner

Cuckolds, politics, Americans, work, humans, the fact that no matter what we will never truly understand each other, but usually only at work because It keeps my mind busy. It's more of a passionate hatred but I feel better when I get off work.

My adopted grandfather, the only man left in my family with a clue regarding finances and frugality. His only major fault is having been so laid back, so hands off. So now nobody has a clue what they're doing.

While stereotypical, I really admire Nikola Tesla. The schizoid in me connects with his desire to just invent shit in his lab away from other people.

From history I admire a lot of people. Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, Caesar Augustus, Agrippa. There's more but they escape me at the moment.

I used to look up to John Carmack during my whole "dude programming lol im such a genius" phase that every compsci student goes through. But that's pretty much it.

Have you gone outside lately? Did something terrible happen? Post it here so the rest of us can learn to avoid similar situations or just to remind people not to go out. No photos please.

Yesterday I went out and numerous strangers attempted to make eye contact with me as I walked down the sidewalk. It was awful, I knew that if I acknowledged their existence there was a risk of further interaction, so I deftly avoided it by looking at other things.

I was driving home a few days ago and I noticed a red truck behind me. I thought nothing of it at first, thinking he just lived in my neighborhood, but as soon as I parked he got out of his car and started yelling at me and asking me if I knew how to drive. I guess I accidentally pulled out in front of him something. Not willing to talk, I just took off and hid for a bit until I was sure he was gone. Now I get worried when I see a red truck behind me on the way home.

Most likely because they are insecure themselves and are looking to belittle someone else to make themselves feel better, if only for a short period of time.

Earlier in the year I had a job as a cashier for all of two weeks. How people end up spending most of their lives doing that sort of thing will forever bewilder me.

Small talk is a skill you develop. It kills your soul how many people make the same unfunny jokes over and over again though.
