Same. Although it's a bit hard to offer advice when you don't make it clear in what way you feel it's been wasted or what you would prefer to have done with it.

No button, just a gun trigger aimed at your brain. Works equally well.

You have an off button, but no reset button.

Anyone have addictions? I smoke Cigs but that's nowhere near my worst vice... Onaholes have warped my life. I work at a dead end job and barely ever stay awake outside that and just sleep all day/all weekend. Now at work I eagerly await being a complete slave to my Onahole. I think the only thing I really care about this point is jerking off. I'm a mindbroken slave to pleasure and I'm getting more and more degenerate.

I used crit cards a lot before finding Monkey.

I think my team was x1 Excalibur (maxed), x1 Excalibur (not max), x1 Accordian and whatever stop 3 cards I had.

When you get a +50% on attack UR I recommend spending everything you have to make sure you HUR them if it's an event. After that Skill Nullification URs have been the most useful, followed by +atk all and stop cards once again.

I can win most FAWs with just Monkey/Summer Oracle alongside cards I want to level. I've spoke to my guild a little but never really engaged much with them. I'm 20, which isn't that old but I always feel most anime fans on the internet are about 15 which makes me tend to avoid communication (not that I communicate anyway).

Excalibur/King Arthur remind me of Saber, my name and town names are Saber references too. I used to get slightly tempted to spend real money but it just shortens the experience and you'll get there eventually.

>the reward is just pretty card art which I can google anyway yet it gives me a false sense of achievement.
By that logic there's no point in playing any videogame that you can just watch lets plays of.
Half the fun of the game is the progression and building up strong units.

Alcohol and weed. First some liquid carelessness, two 0.5L cans of beer at a good pace does it, and then a fat joint. Within 30-45 minutes after the smoke I just feel like collapsing, so after the amazing state of mind it allows me to skip whatever rest of the day and fast forward with little to no hangover. It still feels wasteful but also really good.

Mike Row answering a fan letter. Read this shit for some insight.

-----------------------------

"Hey Mike (Rowe)!

I’ve spent this last year trying to figure out the right career for myself and I still can’t figure out what to do. I have always been a hands on kind of guy and a go-getter. I could never be an office worker. I need change, excitement, and adventure in my life, but where the pay is steady. I grew up in construction and my first job was a restoration project. I love everything outdoors. I play music for extra money. I like trying pretty much everything, but get bored very easily. I want a career that will always keep me happy, but can allow me to have a family and get some time to travel. I figure if anyone knows jobs its you so I was wondering your thoughts on this if you ever get the time! Thank you!

-Parker Hall

-----------------------------

Hi Parker

My first thought is that you should learn to weld and move to North Dakota. The opportunities are enormous, and as a “hands-on go-getter,” you’re qualified for the work. But after reading your post a second time, it occurs to me that your qualifications are not the reason you can’t find the career you want.

I dunno, I disagree. I can see where he is coming from, and I frequently try to do much of the same. The problem with me is I tend to overworry, so it's hard to "retreat" into my mind, so to speak. This is likely one reason why I'm so close to my waifu, is because my mind is the "reality," and that's where my love for her is strongest, or something.

I'm not exactly sold on the whole Matrix analogy, but it makes sense to me.
>> No. 20612 [Edit]

Exactly bro. If you really think about "Reality", we are composed of cells made of molecules, everything is just atoms flying around, even the way we experience time was invented by humans, no cell in your body is older than 10 years etc. Everything else is an abstraction we created. Once I realised this I was able to stop giving a fuck.

>Whats your mental problem(s)?
Severe social anxiety and depression. I'm also painfully socially inept, but that doesn't count.
>What do you think is the solution to it?
At this point I guess I'm just going to have to jump in the shark tank and hope I don't sink or get eaten.
Suicide is also always there thankfully, but I'd really would prefer not dying worse off than a dog at the moment.
>What have you done to fix it?
I've ditched video games, anime, and what little of the internet I can tolerate. All were pretty easy since I've stopped having any underlying sense of passion for any of them years ago. This of course has given me a lot of time on my hands, which I sometimes waste being indecisive on "where to even begin". On the topic of what I've done the past few months, I finally got around to learning how to drive and I've been taking frequent lengthy jogs/walks around the local park; making sure I greet most passerbys while taking note of my delivery. Brushing up on my academics hasn't hurt either, albeit doing it half-heartedly. As for my anxiety I've recently decided to undertake a popular audio based CBT resource. While I'll doubt it'll be the cure all some rave reviews suggest it can be, I hope I'll be able to take something anything out of it.

I'm not too sure on what ill do next but I'd like to enroll in a gym very close to where I live, unfortunately just the serious thought had me nauseous from the anxiety.
My only real incentive for doing all this is pretty much my fear of becoming some bum people will feel welcomed to torture without worry of lawful punishment.

i didn't make that post, but thats me.
i think i could accurately tell you why i'm like you and maybe thats similar to what it is that makes you that way as well. a lot of time people who are similar got there via different paths though so i'm not sure you're like i am for the same reasons i'm this way. the thing about it is i'm not sure what the value of knowing why is.
i've realized some of the probale origins of my behavioral patterns, but i don't know how that helps me.

i'll tell you what i think if you want me to

/so/, what things have you already started and tried to become good at but ended up giving up on? I'm guessing all of our rooms are, or have at some point already been, littered with useless things that we bought for hobbies and that we end up keeping, although having already given up on that, so I was curious what you guys already tried so far life but stopped doing.

For me, I already tried learning how to draw, to get into philosophy (especially medieval and semiotics), learning japanese and latin (although I plan on resuming my studies in these), I already tried to learn how to play an instrument (trumpet), tried karate when I was a child and swimming when I was a teenager, and I already tried to get good into sculpting. I guess my biggest waste hole amongst my hobbies has been in attempting art, especially because I have no intention whatsoever in returning to drawing or studying art.

So what about you guys? What have you guys already tried and given up on?

That's the spirit. It's like that in a lot of fields. From playing the guitar I know that stretching exercises and practicing theory is the toughest part. When you punch through that, you get to the creative stage, that's when your work pays off and you can design that RPG with characters and a storyline you want it to have. Take your time with those first steps, they're the tall ones, for sure!

Thank you, you know I had the same thoughts as well.
I was always thinking that I could do what I want once I learned these things, be it a language, art or this time, RPG maker. I'll keep trying, god bless you and everybody else on this site.

I gave up on learning japanese and following the open courseware for computer science. I will try again with Japanese the next week.

Anyone else here in constant regret because of how they wasted the earliest part of their life? I spent my school days doing absolutely nothing. I just went there to class, maybe listened to the lesson, came back home and did nothing for the rest of the day. Repeat for a few years. Didn't have friends or even any conversations. Now how the fuck do I do those things? Guess back then I didn't care much because I was still surrounded by people even though I didn't have many interactions with them, but now it's real bad. And all this anime, manga and the like I consume is making it worse, even the not so happy stuff like pic I posted. Guess I just want to go back to those years and do differently.
Of course this media is usually made to be better than real life. schools are full of dumbshits etc, but I'd say it's also stupid to think you can't make meaningful and fun friendships. I don't know if there is much I can do now though.

I wish I could get an amphetamine prescription. I can't stand the brainfog, lethargy and apathy any longer. What are the chances of that though? Doctors will think I'm a drug abuser because I sure look like one, when really I just want some energy so I can attempt to improve my life. I can't buy speed off the street either because that would require some semblance of bravery and social skills. I really need to top myself ASAP.

Where do you score on the Briggs-Meyers test? I scored INTP around 18 months ago (worksheet in high school) and now and I don't think it'll change that much after now, I scored INFP when I was 13 though (thingy in middle school). I guess you can use this thread for other tests since I didn't see one in the catalog.

Most of us would probably be Introverted but the three others may vary.

Here's a picture, I know LoGH isn't a psychological anime and it's kind of elitist and hipster, but for the most part this chart and character alignment is right. Speaking of LoGH my ideals in characters would be Yang for his genius and easygoing personality and Reuenthal for his pride and manly death as he passes through existential problems.

This thread is about despairing over painfully bad reading skills.

If only I could open a book with peace, read it page by page, and not get stuck on the same sentence, become sleepy, and itch and scratch on my head.

Whenever I try to read something, especially if I get really into it, I stop every couple lines because I start fantasizing about something related and usually this occurs for about half an hour until I realize I haven't progressed at all in reading. I honestly try and stop it but I can't.
>> No. 19888 [Edit]

I do this too. Mainly with reading but also with writing or other activities that takes effort. It can take me a day to do things other people finish in a couple of hours.

I found another tool to help me read faster, called BeeLine reader, which I have as a bowser plug-in and it makes websites start showing text in color gradients. It doesn't work on imageboard sites though. I'm not sure if it actually helps and sometimes it's inconvenient and sometimes it's more daunting to see walls of text when they're colorful, but I'd figure I'd share.

It looks quite straining on the eyes, but it might really help with skipping/rereading lines.

Do you ever feel like a prosocial normalcool after a long day of posting? I typically only ever lurk, so on the rare occasions that I find myself making a couple of posts here and there--maybe even a thread or two--I feel completely drained afterwards. I always come away from it feeling like some kind of neurotypical. It's no wonder those forums dedicated to people with social anxiety and those imageboards for shut-ins are destined to fail (then there's the fact that I'm not even a true 'hikikomori' so I'm just the tip of the iceberg). And, holy shit, we take anonymity for granted sometimes. Imagine if we didn't have all of these outlets that aren't tied to our identity. Imagine that I had instead made this post with a facebook account as my status update. At the end of the day, as social creatures, Facebook and tohno really do serve the same purpose, which is pretty nuts to think about.

i often feel anxious when posting things im not sure of cause what if i'm wrong and people laugh or yell at me? what if im just making a fool of myself? especially things like forums or even reddit where i have a username and a page, because people could remember this and bring it back up. in that way i think you're right in underappreciating anonymity.
>> No. 20385 [Edit]
It's hard for me to post, that's why I do it in small doses, and most of the time, I don't revisit the thread, until some time passes. If I post too much in the same thread, I get anxious looking at replies, it's like an inebriation sort of state. It can be a high, or a painful hangover.


I guess that for someone who has a life, whatever happens here is small potatoes, but as a depressed reclusive type, this is my only social interaction, and thus I feel like I need to create a mental barrier , so as to not let someone's else remark affect me.
