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.

Give me a bit to upload the new banners Ive been a lazy piece of shit lately.
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
Fuck this american bullshit
>wake up about 10:00 to 12:00

Greetings, human. Sorry, I live in mars just discovered how clocks work.
>wake up at 10 pm
>make a microwave sausage egg and cheese breakfast
>listen to music all day
>maybe play tf2
>pass out at 3pm

does this count as being hikki?
>wake up 9am
>leave room to use bathroom
>lay in bed for another 2 hours
>work for an hour on my laptop in my room
>leave room for 4 minutes to heat lunch in a microwave and grab drink
>work for another 3 hours in my room
>sit at my personal computer in my room for 3 hours
>leave room for 4 minutes to get a drink and microwave food
>sit at my personal computer in my room for 6 hours then get in bed
>lay in bed for 2 hours listening to asmr
I go to the bathroom a couple more times during all that and once a week I have to go to the front door to bring in my groceries which consist of hotpockets and dr pepper
I try to leave my room as little as possible, maybe i'm outside of it for less then thirty minutes a day, I go outside for about 5 minutes once a week
is this the largest /hikki/-type board?
No thanks. It glows in the dark.
We hikkis really need to stop calling ourselves NEETs and just embrace hikki. NEET is such a low barrier of entry that normies are infesting NEET communities.
Reject NEET. Embrace hikikomori.
Yeah pretty much. Any teenager can claim to be a NEET because they aren't currently going to school or working, which definitely isn't the same thing as hardly leaving your house for years on end, while also probably not having a bunch of friends like normalcattle NEETs do. I'm aware there's debate around these definitions and Hikki/NEET just being synonyms, but if we're honest with ourselves, there is a big distinction between not working for a couple months and not working for multiple years-decades while being stuck in your room because you suffocate in public. Frankly comparing us to NEETs diminishes what we go through and how severe our problems typically are and fetishes it, a lot of us just weren't ever destined to be functional.
Not clicking that
Tell me popular 6 digit career these days
drug dealer. idk, you expect us to know anything about jobs???
>space marine nigger asking hikkis about jobs
lel absolute retard
Just like the suicide thread in the previous board. Share any struggles you might have regarding suicide, any past failed attempts and/or why do you think suicide may be the answer to all this you're going through.
I've been procrastinating/delaying my suicide plan for over 5 years now, partly because I'm scared of what comes after death as I cannot know for sure what will happen once I'm on the other side and this kind of scaring me and holding me back from killing myself. Maybe it's the survival instinct in the end? I attempted suicide for like 8 times in 3 years now and every-time I was saved by either a stranger or a family member and this didn't change my mindset or made me think less of it. The desire to eradicate this body, this existence is getting stronger day after day especially these days, but I'm still hesitating to actually go with it, as I still have somewhat of a brief feeling of hope that my ways might change in the future but then I rethink it and figure out that I'm in my early 20's now and still haven't done anything significant with my life, still trying to find a purpose, a motivation or maybe a dream to live for, meanwhile everyone my age around me is graduating college and passing through different phases with their lives, all while I'm still stuck in the no-purpose teenage-like kind of existentialism. It really gets very boring everyday and Idk what to do anymore.
I also plan to kill myself, good luck
I wander if living like this will decrease my lifespan drastically.
I don't go outside at all, and my skin is starting to peel and rash.
Hopefully the lack of sun will have worse consequences and decrease my life significantly - preferably a peaceful death in my 50's.
Combined with my lack of exercise and my negative personality - hopefully my body will just give up soon.
i plan to kill myself with my boyfriend
I'm also starting to really worry about the lack of sunlight thing, my mother commented on how horrible my skin looks last morning and I don't know what to do now. It makes me feel like an idiot just standing in my garden doing nothing just to stop my body from decaying. what kind of life is that? where you only go outside to fill some sunlight quota. fucking stupid, I wish I was dead.
I'm also about to end it.
I wish you all good luck with your attempts, hoping you all will manage to get where you want to go.
Thanks for a good reading, guys.
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.
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.
I was in college for 3 weeks. Became a neet for 5 years. Worked in a supermarket for 6 months. Been a neet/hiki again for the past 9 years.
I kind of wish I lived in a more slow-paced place. Then I wouldn't mind working if it was a small town with friendly people.
But now I'm stuck in a cement prison in the city.
Almost quit during year 11 and 12, but 13 was pretty good. Then UNI. Shit was so easy in the beginning, then I skipped some shit and I can't into. No motivation anyways, SA, eventually just stopped showing up. There was simply no job I could imagine myself doing, what was I studying for?
Got a job, then started drinking to cope.
A handful of years later and I'm a hikki, still stuck, but at least not a full-blown alcoholic.
Want to switch places? I'm looking to move. I anticipate the freedom through "anonymity" that comes with living in a bigger city.
I know too many people here and I'd rather try to start fresh
I went hikki in my mid-20s, just to make people online angry. Parents always said to not let internet people control my life, and they certainly aren't now :^)
What games have you been playing recently /hikki/? What's the game you have put the most hours into?
I downloaded Spore too. I mostly just make creatures instead of playing it.
It's been years since I played Spore. The main thing I remember is that you get spammed with attack notifications constantly, but as long as you're never at war with anyone it's always harmless pirates who just steal a single crate of spice. Also, bribing nearby allies to attack hostile civilizations is highly effective and never gets traced back to you.
I played spore recently, Its good I just wish it wasn't a let down on release.
Got back into Skyrim recently. Made a make dark elf. His name is Thorn
I made such a typo. Lol how can I fix that
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.
>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
At first my mother got VERY angry at me and constantly attacked me, but now she doesn't care that much and doesn't bother me as much.
I just hope I can figure out what to do when she finally dies.
I feel myself becoming worse.
I can't handle being around others anymore. THEY are the ones that have made me this way.
I just hope I can be alone in Heaven.
