Once a week, fill out the OP questions and let us know what you're up to!
Think of it as a FRIDAY NIGHT thread like on other sites, only you can post any day of the week at any hour of your choosing since NEETs don't have a schedule or any reason to look forward to the weekend.
Or, just a wordier and more demanding alternative to the daily report thread as a more relevant example.



What games are you playing today?

What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?

Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?

Are you reading any manga or literature?

What're you going to have to eat and drink today?

What's on your mind right now?

And, in general, how are you feeling?

That's kind of a lot of stuff to answer.
>> No. 30168 [Edit]
Is this thread permanent or are you going to make the same thread every week? If you're thinking the latter, I recommend you do the former, otherwise there will be lots of almost-empty threads with the same purpose.
>FRIDAY NIGHT thread like on other sites
But those are lame. But maybe this thread will be the exception because it's here.

>What games are you playing today?
Mostly hooked on a mmo, Skyforge, but I sometimes play League of Legends and Heroes of the Storm; I'm very casual and mostly just in for the characters. Also taking care of my succulents in Viridi (I wouldn't call it a game though).
>What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?
I don't watch any youtube channels per se. I watched F.A.Girl episode 8, and will watch later with lunch episodes 3 and 4 of Hanamonogatari.
>Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?
Not fond of podcasts, I prefer to read. I don't think listing every song I've heard in the last day, much less week would be anything but spam.
>Are you reading any manga or literature?
I keep up with manga releases, but nothing today in particular. I no longer read books as a form of entertainment.
>What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
I already had breakfast (cereal with milk and honey, a boiled eeg and a piece of dark chocolate) and will make a lasagna + garlic bread later on.
>What's on your mind right now?
I hate having to work and I wished I could be a hikiNEET again. I'm fully aware it's selfish, but why can't the government let me leech off welfare forever? Specially when it's not an issue when "Refugees" do it and they are dirty, loud, violent, ungrateful, disorderly, and send money back home. Yes, I'm envious.
>And, in general, how are you feeling?
I could be worse.

Today, every day really, I'm playing Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead, and I think that'll continue for a good while.
I've been playing for a month now and I can't survive longer than a few days (in-game), I get impatient and raid buildings I'm not equipped for and die stupid deaths.
Anyway, I highly recommend it. It's not hyper balanced flawlessness like a lot of rogue-likes, they focus primarily on entertainment factor and sheer amount of content instead. Like, you can disassemble and reassemble every part of a vehicle and stick stupid shit to it like turrets, or uh, an actual viable method of defending yourself early game is to drop your underwear and light them on fire and lead the enemy into it. It's fun.
I'm playing it for the horror factor. It's not a particularly scary game in and of itself, but it sure can be if you use your imagination (as you should when playing any game with simplistic or non-graphics).

As for watching, I've been watching Friday the 13th: The Game gameplay on YouTube. I'll never afford a nice computer or a modern console, so I won't be able to play that... but it looks fantastic, it's one of the only kickstarter games I've seen that's successful.
It made me so enthusiastic about the franchise that I'm marathoning the movies, none of which I had ever seen prior.
Also, gotta throw anime in there somehow. I'll be watching horror series "Mononoke".

I follow four k-pop groups: INFINITE, BTOB, Red Velvet and UP10TION. They're all I listen to. I follow them because they did my waifu's soundtracks.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWVobR3G6Qc
This is a good one.

I'm on story 4 of classic horror manga, "Left Hand of God-Right Hand of Devil".
It uh, genuinely made me afraid to go to sleep the past couple nights.
I don't want to spoil anything, check it out.

I cooked this Mexican meat stew last night for my waifu. I don't get memey and serve it up to him in front of his shrine or anything, it's all a symbolic thing really; I did jack shit before I met him and depended upon my mom, now I'm cooking my own huge meals.
Anyway, I'll have those leftovers as well as Earl Grey tea, my favorite. It's nothing fancy, just Walmart teabags.

Hmm, I'm thinking about this DMCA shit I got from my internet service provider. They blocked my access to the internet for a while and sent me a couple of letters and emails. I've always been a big careless retard when it came to internet privacy, now I may be paying for it.
I'm not afraid that they're actually going to take me to court of course, but I'm a little scared to pirate anything further. I might uh, stream that anime. I'm too set in my ways and incompetent to hide behind 8 proxies or whatever is necessary to not get fucked.

I'm feeling like every drop of depression has fully cleared out of my body and mind like a new man, and it's all thanks to my wife. I haven't thought about killing myself in months. These past few days have been real bliss. I never cared about horror before, I only do it for him.

>What games are you playing today?

Playing Etrian odyssey untold 2, it's an old school RPG with cute anime girls for the 3ds. The story is almost non existent and the main focus is exploring. While the map gimmick sure it's fun my favourite part of the game is the deep character customization. Got really hooked up into these games last year, and played most of the franchise. Hell, I even got a bit spoiled by them, I can't stand other RPGs with simpler combat and boring as fuck story.

>What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?

Watched Koe no Katachi, good stuff.
Waiting for Kimi no Na wa BDs.

>Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?

Mostly Edgar Froese and Keith Emerson. Some 2hu tunes too.

>Are you reading any manga or literature?

Just finished Franken Fran, I didn't know what I was going to get when I started it but got a pleasant surprise. The gorefest and the style of humour went very well. Also, Veronica a cute.

For books, I managed to get Discourse on the Method and some Mario Bunge stuff about science and its philosophy for a low price. Haven't read the first one yet, but in the second the author makes foundations on how science works, I haven't got very deep into it yet.

>What're you going to have to eat and drink today?

Nothing worth mentioning

>What's on your mind right now?

I remember reading some bullshit about how being a neet was the best option for a person. It made me think about it for a while. But then I remembered that my family is poor and I can't get welfare here, so fuck it.

>And, in general, how are you feeling?

Bad, knowing that I have to return to my obligations

I loved Etrian Odyssey II. I got four bears and the one gunner that looks like a Russian and role-played that he was some slavic survivalist loner that connected with animals better than humans.

Is the Beast class still in the Untold port? For some reason, it got shit on by everyone, and I wouldn't be surprised if they removed it, but I also wouldn't be buying it. I don't know why people shit on it anyway, my bears were really good. Maybe because they're boring compared to others.

Beasts are pretty good in this game, thank god the devs fixed loyal mastery.They can protect your squishier party members and take hits for the whole party. They also have some attacks skills, but they are straight forward and kind of boring.

Having 4 beasts and 1 gunner is not a terrible idea. Beasts are self sufficient (they have a self HP recovery skill), and gunner have elemental attacks when needed. But you would be missing ailments.

What games are you playing today?
Old School RuneScape

What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?
Watched one episode of Eden of the East.

Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?
some Higurashi no Naku Koro ni soundtracks / remix albums + a crossover between haruhi and higurashi. some ragnarok online inspired albums.

Are you reading any manga or literature?
I didn't read any today, but in the last week I've read the first 8 or 9 chapters of Angelic Layer. It's good so far, but it seems much different than Chobits (which it's supposedly a prequel to). More aimed at kids whereas Chobits was definitely (young) adults.

What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
White rice and protein shakes.

What's on your mind right now?
I hope I die.

Going to quote my first post every week for easy tracking. >>30180

I'm still playing Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. I'm finally starting to survive longer than two to four days tops. Everyone complains that this game is insanely easy to the point of disqualifying it from being classified a rogue-like, but I'm not seeing it. Encountering some very common low level enemies like zombie dogs can mean an absolutely guaranteed death even for a heavily equipped player under the right conditions. You don't see that in many games.
I'm getting mildly annoyed about losing characters I spent hours on, so I may replay Ninja Gaiden on the side. Sigma, unfortunately, since I do not own an XBOX.
It's odd how subjective difficulty is. Personally, I find Ninja Gaiden and Dark Souls to be very easy and I effortlessly completed challenge runs, such as nunchaku only or completely naked. Yet, here I am struggling greatly with C:DDA, and I find Monster Hunter unplayable solo on certain hunts. Both of these games are widely regarded as casual.

This week, I am watching Texhnolyze, recommended to me by a user here.
I watched Nacho Libre earlier today, too. I was very happy with it. The dialogue and humor was pretty insufferable, but aesthetically, it's a masterpiece, and the overall message of the film was very heartwarming and pure. I really liked that they didn't get on a soapbox about the church and conformity. I thought for sure that the 3DPD love interest was going to be corrupted and abandon her commitment to God for the 3D dick, but nah! God came first in this film.
It had this great song in it that really speaks to me.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0azcDt73IY4
I approach waifuism as a religion of sorts, so... "'Cause when I speak, you're always there." ""Cause you're my gospel, my daily bread!"

I'm reading the Hokuto no Ken manga. I finished both of the TV series several times in the past, but only skimmed the manga. They are completely different from one another, I think I like the manga better so far.
I'm also reading horror novel "Buried Blossoms" by Stephen Lewis.
It's uninteresting. I'm forcing myself through it. I don't think I'm the target audience.

Mom's not doing so well financially this week. All I had to eat today was frozen potstickers that had been in the fridge for months.

I'm scared I'll grow disinterested with my waifu later in life. I'm scared shitless. I'd revert back to my suicidal tendencies and an non-existence of nihilism.
I must not let that happen.

I'm not feeling too great. My whole body hurts, even my fucking tongue has sores on it.

Tomorrow, I start swimming lessons.

What games are you playing today?
Shin Megami Tensei IV, Old School RuneScape

What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?
Ichigo Mashimaro. I finished Eden of the East, the ending seemed to just be a lead-in to the movies which I don't have yet.

Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?
Some Ragnarok Online album: [Sonic Revolution] Zephyrus. Picture related.

Are you reading any manga or literature?
Not right now. I finished Angelic Layer, and it was kind of a let down. It wasn't that bad, but not that great either. A really simple story for kids.

What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
Expired pop-tarts, mapo tofu, protein shake.

What's on your mind right now?
I wonder if anybody even looks at the food thread on /cr/.

And, in general, how are you feeling?
So-so. Sometimes having unexplainable feeling like "everything will be fine", replaced frequently with feeling of "nothing is alright". Strange feelings.
>> No. 30234 [Edit]
-What games are you playing today?-
Either more Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or some FFXIV to prep for the expansion next week

-What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?-
Was rewatching Plinkett's Star Wars prequel reviews last night and this morning. Might watch more Game Grumps tonight. Also plan to watch Yugioh VRAINS, Eromanga-sensei, and 1-2 other shows at a friend's later today.

-Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?-
Not really. I'll probably listen to stuff in the car. I was hoping to relax tonight with an ASMR file but my earbuds are broken.

-Are you reading any manga or literature?-
Not at the moment

-What're you going to have to eat and drink today?-
I had cinnamon rolls for breakfast and tea. Not sure what lunch and dinner will be, likely one will be fast food with my friend I mentioned.

-What's on your mind right now?-
Really don't want to go to work today. See below:

-And, in general, how are you feeling?-
Shit. Parents pissed me off last night by dragging me to dinner with a family member I never met. They say get there by 6 and as soon as I pulled in, they text me "lol table isn't ready until 7 sorry." I go in anyway and not even 5 minutes there they badger me about my job hunt and finding better employment, if I would consider moving, etc. I got pissed and left, and I've felt like shit for the last 12 hours since.

At least the weekend is coming...

I'm a little confused. Do you live with your parents? If so, why did they bring this stuff up in front of another person not living with you? Also, did you just get up and leave? before or after the table was ready?

Yeah I live with my parents. This was before the other family members arrived, and before the table was ready. I didn't leave right away after or during the conversation, I kinda had it shifted a different direction then left about 15 minutes earlier, under the guise of "I realy don't want to wait any longer since this is taking longer than anticipated"

Internally I was both seething and depressed though.

I need to find a job that gives me a lot of free time and lets me retire early.
>And, in general, how are you feeling?
Alright but tired. I'm trying not to think about what could happen because that always makes me stressed over nothing.

>>30243
I don't. I find these threads to be a nice way of reflecting on what I'm doing. I read other peoples posts to see if there's anything interesting I haven't heard or if someone brings up something I'm familiar with that I could respond to them about. These threads and threads like them are one of the things I like about smaller imageboards.

Fuck it, it's a tuesday morning and I missed this a few weeks in a row:

What games are you playing today?
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?
Probably gonna watch some western cartoon shit

Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?
Just the usual anime stuff on my mp3 player while driving today. Maybe some ASMR if I decide to take an extra long nap today.

Are you reading any manga or literature?
Still no

What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
Drinking water right now before work. Taking a pre-made, microwavable sandwich with me to work to eat at a friend's house when I get off at 2

What's on your mind right now?
Surprisingly, not work stress. See below

And, in general, how are you feeling?
Super sleepy. I was off work all last week so I played FFXIV and stayed up late. Sunday, my friend's roommate and his wife were loud as fuck and kept waking me up, so I only got like 5 hours of sleep, so I'm really feeling it today. Still though, last weekend one of my friends basically reemed into me about my freaking out over work stress, so I've made some better steps in handling it. I wasn't having anxiety issues yesterday, nor am I this morning; Just want to stay home and sleep.

I think when I get home from work, which should be around 3:30 I'm just gonna pass out for 2 or 3 hours.
>> No. 30283 [Edit]
>games
I recently finished playing Uncharted4 and hit the (crappy?)end of neptunia PP, not sure if I wanna bother replaying it for the missed content since it kinda sucks.

>anime
At the time of posting this got in an ep of sakura quest earlier, and still got a few left overs from last season to finish up.

>music?
I don't care enough to follow up on music much. It just serves as something to pass the time while driving for me, not much past that.

>What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
Just had some Frosty Bitches (wendies).

>What's on your mind right now?
regret over making a fool out of myself at a convention recently, and buying a new house.

>And, in general, how are you feeling?
very sleep deprived.

Watched every first episode available and found a few worth keeping, much better week than last week.

Same shit, I've got a backlog of western cartoons to watch. Might do that sometime today.

>Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?
Same shit

>Are you reading any manga or literature?
Wow I am a boring person

>What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
Literally taking a sandwich to my friend's house for lunch today. Again

>What's on your mind right now?
I had a job interview Thursday for a stressful sounding, but much better paying, job than I currently have. Been weighing the pros and cons about accepting it all weekend if they offer me the job.

And, in general, how are you feeling?
Mixed. My anxiety in general about my current job has fallen to an all-time low, but the prospect of this new job is making me freak out because I don't know if I should go with it or not. Better pay/more hours, more benefits, but higher stress and more intense work, compared to the lower pay/hours, no benefits, but familiar workload and more laid back.

Sense of dread, malaise, vaguely irritated, trying to keep my mood up

I'll probably play Left 4 Dead 2 again but I hope I don't play anything.

>What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?
Anything that has to do with Sonic Forces, I've grown to like the theories people have about the new character, Infinite.

>Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?
Not yet, no.

>Are you reading any manga or literature?
Only required readings that are as depressing and doom&gloom as you would expect them to be because old writers had a fetish for suffering.

>What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
I would like poison but a sandwich is nice too so it'll probably be that because i dont have any spare poson lying around.

>What's on your mind right now?
How much I hate other people, how much I hate myself, the fact that my life is doomed to solitude because I'm an insufferable subhuman waste of space and I don't fit in anywhere. The fact that I used to be told to "step out of my shell" but when I do that things happen that tell me to go back into it only to be told to step out of said shell once more.

And the custom fumo I want to make but I'm nervous because there are no resources to guide me through it so I have to make a pattern on my own.

>And, in general, how are you feeling?
I want to die but I don't have the strength.
