Well all I ever really wanted out of life was to go on adventures and have superpowers and explore the galaxy so I feel you OP. I hate thinking that I'm going to die having never experienced my dream.

Art is very powerful. You should try to create, even just as an outlet.

I have a lot of thoughts on the subject but I'll leave it at this: I believe that some form of the meaning we simultaneously created and were torn away from through our birth exists in art, in your own self-expression. Even if it's just for your own consumption, it's still cathartic and liberating. "Music is everything. God himself is nothing more than an acoustic hallucination." - Emil Cioran

I find fulfillment through that mainly. It's one of very few things I don't regard as tedious or depressing.

It's my treasure and a reason for tomorrow to happen.

Finals this, finals that...
Is it just me or does it seem like every person on the internet is attending classes in some form or another? Do people destroy their computers when they finish school or do they just attend schools for all eternity? It feels rare to meet people online who work regular jobs and who don't still have homework to do on the side, or who are truly NEET for that matter.

I have written philosophy and posted it here before, but my degree is in Experimental Psychology.

I won't lie, higher education can do wonders for your intellect so long as you escape the whole liberal hivemind that tends to predominate in academia (although it wasn't so terrible when I went and I was in the American South at the time, so that makes sense that it would be more tolerable). Still, no job and no sense of real purpose. Then again, what is a real purpose? And we all know that even a high-paying job usually brings misery.

Maybe I dodged a bullet. I like to think that I'm better off, although I may not be.

i'm a mentally ill neet with no hope of ever getting a job. i don't mind though. i don't mind dying alone. but i do wonder where all other neets went. feels like i'm the only neet left on the internet. it's pretty lonely

I'm here. I think most NEETs don't blogpost much because, well, what is there to talk about outside of our hobbies? The lifestyle is the same routine year in and year out for most I'd assume.
>> No. 30620 [Edit]
It's been years since I left school and I work a regular job. "Adults" rarely mention anything about their jobs because it's even more uneventful and boring than school. There's nothing to blog about.

Kind of. Sex in anime and stuff is hot, and making offspring through labs or artificial creation is cool, but 3D bodies are completely removed in my mind form what those are. 3DPD sex and reproduction are absolutely disgusting.

After seeing the immense popularity of the what bugs you thread, I decided that I would make a thread for people to post all the awesome things (big or little) in life that simply make you happy. I understand Tohno-Chan has a lot of gripes and resentments, but we cant all be negative all the time. After all, what is negativity if we have nothing to compare it too?

People that truly get excited when talking about their interest or hobby. They have something that they love so much that they can't help but smile about it.

Isn't that wonderful?

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

I feel very uncomfortable when I'm dirty. I shower every day, trim facial hair regularly, brush teeth, clean ears, fresh clothes every day all that shit and I still stink. For some reason I can smell my weird fucking genitals all the time. I don't get it.
Haven't slept a long time and for some reason this cracks me up but really it's pretty disgusting and annoying, I don't know what to do anymore.

Is it possible you're showering "wrong"? Alternatively, why not go to a doctor about it? You might have a fungal infection, which usually showering doesn't delete.
>> No. 30523 [Edit]
I barely even shower. Maybe once every two weeks at most.

Tonight or tomorrow night will probably be the last night this summer that I get to watch anime outside on my roof at night. There is something special to me about watching Japanese cartoons at night with the stars overhead and my garden surrounding me. I see meteors, satellites, bats, moths and occasionally owls flying around up there pretty regularly. A couple weeks ago I was watching Aho Girl around midnight and a pair of red tailed hawks flew by circling each other yelling and generally mixing it up a lot more than Wikipedia would probably say that diurnal animals do on the average night.
Next May or June I will watch more anime on my rooftop.

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.

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

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.

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

Kenshiro and Guts.

I can't be entirely sure if there are more since my mind is as scattered as a box full of puchidol. I do know that I was definitely inspired by a couple more, but I feel that these two have definitely had a sizable impact on me.

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.
