meta thread for discussing board rules and changes. feel free to post complaints about rules and changes you want to see to them.
but you got to buy groceries somehow or whatever., I guess now you could buy things online but either way the waves and delivery driver wants to talk to me, figured the cashiers don't give a shit so they won't bother.
This thread is a great lesson why you should never befriend Anons. I'd say that 33%-50% are emotionally stunted & dependent which means high maintenance not to mention what that directly entails, egotistic/narcissistic, dishonest with themselves, easily offended, will eventually know the posts you make and stalk you, and if slighted enough times you'll get what's happened here where they expose you. Not that Tumblr and Twitter are good places with non-terrible people but a lot of the shittalking is from projection. The chat dramas that have been leaked are enough evidence of this insufferable loathsome mindset. This comes from my own experience conversing and pondering my own behavior('s potential). The posters you're speaking to and may consider to be comrades have the same fortitude and sensibilities of a teenage millenial on Tumblr.
Victim complex too.

Yesterday I saw my teacher from high-school. Back then, I would get excellent grades and she would always used to tell me that I am incredibly intelligent and that she sees me becoming very successful. She told me that she is very disappointed that, at 21, I am a NEET with no friends. I explained that society has nothing to offer me (went into a little detail about my reasons) and she said it's tragic we live in a world where people like myself just don't want to contribute. Anyone else had a similar experience where people had high expectatinos of you and you kind of let them down?
>21 years old
You sound too young to be giving up so soon.
>used to tell me I'm incredibly intelligent
I used to be, by my first year as a NEET passed I felt the light bulbs in mind slowly dim.
Instead of encouraging you she just tells you you're a fuckup, what a bitch. She set an expectation of you that wasn't real, maybe she should've laid it on nicer
>Instead of encouraging you she just tells you you're a fuckup,
That's what both of my parents have been doing ever since I was a teen. I will never forget the time my father basically told me he had given up on me when I was just 16. He got a new daughter with his new wife just a year prior and he went on saying how he had made "mistakes" raising me and it was "too late" but he wasn't going to do the same with his daughter. I'll never forget the tone of his voice and his phrasing, how he referred to me as if I was just another failed project and he was hopeful the new one would turn out better. My relationship with him has been going down hill ever since to the point I can hardly even consider him my father nowadays, whenever we talk he almost treats me as if we're just acquaintances meeting at a bar and he only feels obliged to me because of societal norms rather than actually giving a damn.
I see why my original post makes it seem that way. I forgot to say that she expressed her disappointment asking several questions about my plans for the future and trying to encourage me. It was mostly my total desire to engage in society that was the source of her disappointment, it wasn't so much that she gave up on me but saw that I gave up on myself.
SXULTAPE VISION - THE LAST TRIP
Here's a metal version if you really did like that.
Soap. - Drive
Food has gotten exponentially more expensive lately and I've been in need of more things to make that don't break the bank. If you have any recommendations and recipes I would appreciate it.
Ramen. Always get Ramen. it's cheap and can spread anything easily. I cook some eggs and use a little milk for the broth and it fills me up pretty nicely.
>ill post my recipe if anyone wants it.
Sure, why not. It could help me or someone else one day.
Ramen used to be my main food, but i get sharp pain in my lower left side, i think kidney, whenever i eat it so i stopped unless there's no decent food left at all.
Eggs, boiled eggs. Dirt cheap and 5 eggs per meal is too much energy for your body already.
If you are making the ramen that comes in the packet and not in the cardboard bowl you can do this;
pour water into the bowl the ramen is going to be served in to the height you want the ramen to be in the bowl. Then pour the water into the pot to boil. It saves you having to use and dirty a measuring cup and you always get the right amount of liquid to pour back into the bowl.
2 cups of soy sauce
1 cup of any east asian wine(ive used sake but I use Mirin mostly)
a tablespoon of honey
a tablespoon of ground ginger
a few shakes of garlic powder
3 cloves of garlic
boneless skinless chicken thighs
first mix the sauce its very easy use every ingredient in it besides the corn starch garlic cloves and chicken thighs
then fry your chicken and crushed garlic cloves until they are fully cooked then add the sauce
wait for the sauce to heat up before adding the corn starch
Share your daily routine anons
I'm a little bit more productive these days and feeling good on the emotional and mental side, so I been waking up early in the morning and adjusting to my new plans for the remaining 6 months of this year.
>wake up at 5-7 am
>use face cleanser and wash teeth, make a hot cup of green tea
>planning my food for the day as I been doing OMAD for half a month now, seeing as it's easier to manage the meal and get my daily needed calories and proteins, instead of having to eat 3+ times a day
>go online, lurk shitchan /fit/ and watch some YT videos of the people I'm subbed to
>watch a movie
>5 PM. sit down to eat my daily meal
>7-8 PM. Meditate and do some relaxing techniques to chill down before heading to bed
>sleep at 9 PM max.
I've been thinking about adding a one hour working-out plan to my routine but I'm still kind of lazy and ain't able to go through with it, but it's getting better or at least I'm hoping it gets better and I actually manage to add an exercise plan to my day.
Also I live in a very negative environment inside my parents house and it's been drastically affecting my mental health far more than what isolation does to me and I'm really sick of it bu
classic text based rouge likes are cool. I wish I got into them

>This is probably the only board on the webring where you don't need to feel ashamed for hygienic shit.
Lol, I feel too ashamed to discuss this with any person I know so I much rather mention it (if I ever mention it) online when I'm anon. I feel a lot better than before after I took a step back and realized how pathetic I sounded. I need to be a bit more chill. Still, it does suck to be disabled tho.
I don't keep to a very strict schedule.
> Usually wake around 00:00.
> Computer 2 Hours.
> When hungry eat. I might have some ramen or ramen with beef or hamburger. Restaurants are not open when I'm hungry, so I do not order from them. I also distrust service staff, so not a good option.
> Then try to do some programming. I working on 1 in Java at the moment. There are things I like about Java and there are things I don't like about Java. (it's not a game. it's desktop CMS)
> Around 6:00 I do chores.
> 7:00~12 or 15 I fantizile about having a productive day doing things outside. I never do. Then I get too tired and curl up in my deskchair for a few hours sleeping then I move to the bed if I wake up before 00:00.
> Sometimes I'll eat again at 9:00.
Some days I sleep in past 00:00, but then I go to bed latter so it works out the about the same, then after staying up all night and going to sleep at 3:00 for a day or 2, it settles back to 00:00~12 or 15 schedule.
The graveyard shift sleeping I've been doing since teenage years. It was just what comes naturally.
I used to bathe every day before hikikomori, now about once or twice a week. It's difficult because the tub does not drain. So you take your shower, and then you have to sa

it is a very nice plane
is this the largest /hikki/-type board?
my original plan was to make a hikkichan with the boards rules before I got into contact with sturgeon again. Ill probably make it someday maybe.
I like uboachan.
No thanks. It glows in the dark.
A continuation of the old thread on the old board. How far did you get before abandoning everything?
I was never able to finish my first year of high school before dropping out until I was forced in my early 20s to going to night school to get a diploma before cutting off everything completely.
Just like the most here, since high school i've been hikki. I only go out if i need to get some food, usually at late night so it is empty and everyone left. I got so used to this lifestyle that i don't know what to do after my family forsake me and i am sure the time is very close of that happening.
Got a useless degree in community college and worked some jobs.
After high school
I just burnt out.
Stayed that way.
> community college
College is scam anyway. Your probably better off now instead of having to work a job you hate because of college debt.
I never even got as far as university, and I shouldn't have graduated high school either since I just stopped attending one day. Never had a job, and can't go in public without almost passing out anymore. Not sure what I'm supposed to do, nothing brings me pleasure. Probably no way to get bux either, it wouldn't be a livable income in this shithole country either.
what has your family's reaction been to you being a hikikomori? I've noticed my family almost stopped caring about my lifestyle entirely after I entered my late 20s.
>Did you live in a stronghold? You have to mine the spawner.
I don't know why This made me laugh so much. I don't know why I had them everywhere But its probaly because my dad has them and brings used books over to my house and the little retards like eating books.
Fill your house with o3 bro
>Most people go to college because they have been in school for their entire lives and are afraid of doing something else, or just don't know what to do (like me, I had no idea what my options even were other than college and then magically getting a job somehow)
In America you can join a union, which run like mafias and also get you (wage) protection so long as you pay your fees, and make very good money once you become certified. Colleges also hand out degrees and certifications giving you an even bigger headstart. I don't know how protected your wages are in Europe or wherever you live.
why so much text
I know this thread is pretty interesting but I can't force myself to read all those walls of text
this post is just a reminder for me to read this thread later sry
they dont care
