So anons, how's your life going? Anon 07/09/2021 (Fri) 20:33:28 No.5219
Me, I'm thinking of getting the ASVAB because well... I don't exactly know where to go in my life than just being a neet and I don't want that. Might as well make my self useful huh

Lots of mil anons here. Good luck out there guys. As for me, it's decent, but could be better. Unfortunately, I've been getting berry strong urges to self harm after I started doing it again a couple days ago. It's strange because I don't have to necessarily be sad to do it. I exploit it just because it feels good and I like the feeling of recoberry my body goes through. It also just gets me thinking, and helps me brainstorm and stuff. For whatever reason when I don't self harm my brain just feels foggy and I go through extreme lows and highs. It makes me act like a totally different person. I'm extroverted after recently cutting because of the high. Then my friends and family get concerned when I feel the effects wear off (when the high of it wears off) so I do it again to get back to my extroverted perky self. I'm just caught in a cycle where I want to let them know this isn't who I am, but at the same time I don't want them to get worried for me or worse, get sent to a psych ward. Decisions, decisions. I've only told one friend about it. They're internet-only but I think it's a good baby step into helping me quit, or at least just doing it less. Oh well. Even if/when I do it tonight, I'll still be proud of myself for trying. This is the first time I didn't do it for multiple days in a row. It's stoopy to expect to be perfect. >>6083 Sends a chill down my bones. Have you considered setting up a GoFundMe or anything similar like that? I hope you're hanging on out there wherever you are. Bless you.

Starting a new job next week, and I'm anxious about first impressions and imposter syndrome. I really hope it works out, teaches me to socialize better and I can stop being a friendless hermit who spends too much time playing vidya.
>>5873 A bit's happened in the past month and a half. Since making this post my rent got jacked up, which spurred me to apply for a bunch of jobs. None of them accepted me. I got interviews for each one, but they all rejected me within the same day. In fact, at the last one I just had today, the guy cut the interview short and just told me to leave right then and there. I wish I knew what was wrong with me. I guess it's just because I'm too shy? I don't even know anymore. If I could see a shrink then I could start working through these problems, but there's absolutely none who are available when I am. Luckily I've spoken to my boss and he agreed to give me a raise. Work's also gotten a little easier as we've hired a new guy to replace the last one who quit. He's annoying, but it beats dealing with customers that are even more so. Still, I'd like to leave this job eventually and move to a town where there's actually things to do. People say "go outside", but "outside" here is a chain-store-ridden hellscape. I haven't made any real-life friends since high school, all the interesting people leave for the big cities by the time they're done with college.
>>6133 >People say "go outside", but "outside" here is a chain-store-ridden hellscape I know what you mean, and landscapes where I live are nothing worth writing home about either. >I haven't made any real-life friends since high school, all the interesting people leave for the big cities by the time they're done with college. I live in a small town and wood prefer to get all the way out in the country just for the security aspect for the future. I lost contact with my friends, but I realized that I'm not really capable of maintaining friendships anyway.

>>5976 OP here Actually finished bootcamp (surprisingly easy lol) and graduated a week ago! It was actually a nice experience and definitely gave me a confident boost and some nice bros! Hardest part of it was definitely the starting days where you don't know what the quack to do and caca, but it all goes smooth sailing as time passes on (really eberrything became a routine, even the ITs).
>>5219 not much for me, just kinda existing. I work on some projects in my garage eberry now and then, go out for walks and put up posters, but other than that i dont really do much. I live too far away from all my friends from school so the only irl friend i have left is a guy named Greg (hes pretty cool) but we dont talk often. I dont even talk to my online friends that much anymore, im never playing the games the play or anything like that. Plus we just kinda have our differences. Im not even sulking about any of this, its been like this for so long i dont even really care anymore
>>6279 thats good to hear,
>>5219 I'm starting college in early february with a full scholarship plus i lift 3x a week and i'm starting to look good
Caca like always
>>5219 This is an interesting thread to see how things work. From what I've read and understood, Military life is great if you're looking for life-skills and don't have or can't find connections to get a job. If anons are really-quacking-desperate with living situations, you get meals, a place to live, and a paycheck. On the downside, from what I've heard, upper brass has it's head up their ass most of the time. And if you're emotionally-dysfunctional or psychologically-sensitive, military branches will just make things worse- even if you think you can "take it,". Generally it's got a great list of benefits and an equal list of downsides, other things I've heard of: 1. Gov Benefits should be saved for and spent frugally in case of a bureaucratic quack-up. 2. If you get sucked into a relationship with an abusive spouse/partner, Talk to the chaplain. They can be your support for when caca gets bad, and most-importantly, provide you a paper trail so you don't get financially-quacked by he-said-she-said bullcaca. 3. Dishonorable discharge is REALLY FUCKING BAD. Like the equivalent of a felony charge. Even then an other-than-honorable discharge (be it medical or otherwise) can quack your chances of getting back in if something happens- at least with the marines. 4. VA services are hit or miss, and those misses can be REALLY off the mark. 5. If you volunteer for eberrything and show that you're reliable, you'll be treated nice by great NCOs, and utterly-exploited by poopy NCOs. 6. Housing contractors have been really poopy lately, many which have been cooking the books (lying about the jobs they DIDN'T DO) to the point of housing units being complete and utter caca in some areas. 7. If you want a problem fixed and the chain of command is weighing you down. Military meme channels are your friend. 8. look up what to do in case the resident platoon-idiot is doing drugs or underaged drinking. There have been innocent people who had their careers in jeopardy just for being around idiots like that. Also, remember this: I'm just a civilian anon who watches a lot of military YT channels and memes. I don't know what it's like on the other side of the fence, I just go by what I've read and watched about.
Always comfy, never uncomfy

I'm lonely right now, and I want friends I can share ideas and interests with that I can't with my current, and only friend. I can't be socially reclusive anymore, it's detrimental to my overall well-being. I'm so sick of having apathetic people in my life, it's really frustrating at this point.
Might be able to make a bunch of money selling blood twice a week.
Objectively, I have a good life. But really, I am depressed. In fact, I think I've been depressed my entire life. Still, I'll reflect on the good things in my life: 1. I have a gf that I truly love. We were made for each other, and she is heads over heels in love with me. We have complete trust in each other and are in-sync in terms of our visions and goals. The only con is that it's a long-distance relationship; she lives in Mexico. She has a claim to US citizenship, but it's complicated because her dad died a few years back; I'll have to get an attorney invovled. Worst case scenario is just to get married; I'm not opposed to getting married to her--if I was going to ever marry somebody, it wood be her--but I'm against the institution of marriage itself. Also, small negatives: her tits and butt are berry small. This isn't a huge deal, but it kind of sucks that I'll probably never get to "experience" a nice ass or a nice set of tits in my life as my gf is the only girl I've slept with. But again, not a big deal; it's better to have someone to love than some big-titted bimbo. 2. I'm relatively well off. I come from an upper-middle class family, so I was able to go to college without incurring debt. I got a degree in aerospace engineering with high honors. My parents helped me out with finances before I got a job, and I saved and invested most of what I got. My job pays decently (75k/yr) and I have about ~100k in net worth right now. 3. Over the pandemic, I've taken up a lot of hobbies and interests and integrated them into my daily life. I regularly practice guitar, read books, go to Muay Thai class, write on my blog, and learn Spanish. I've been really consistent and I've seen a lot of progress in my skills. Now on to the bad: 1. I hate my job. It's not a bad job per se; I have a good salary, good boss, remote work, federal benefits, and a good work/life balance. However, the work is completely soulless and I hate being stuck in front of a computer screen from 9–5 eberry single day doing extremely boring yet mentally intensive beuaracratic work. I thinking of doing pilot training so I can fly for UPS or FedEx; I doubt the grass will be "greener", but at least I'll be developing actual skills and working with my hands. Plus, I always loved aviation; it's why I studied aerospace engineering, afterall. I have a friend who is in a similar situation as me who has a similar plan, but he is planning on joining the military to become an officer. However, the military isn't for me so I'm going to go the civil route. 2. My parents are getting divorced. My dad has fallen off the deep end of alcholism and is slowly losing his sanity with each year. Moreover, he admitted to me that he has a mistress on the side in Mexico City and doesn't love my mother anymore. Really makes me wonder how many of those "business trips" he took when I was a kid were really just to cheat on mom. On the other hand, my mom demanded that my dad buy her a house and set her up with all the material comforts, so there goes my inheritance. Also, I love my mom, but I can't stand how she's addicted to consuming, shopping, and watching TV. Honestly I don't care, those two fought with each other my entire life and it's about time they split. Really, my parents are the main reason why I never want to get married unless it's absolutely necessary. 3. I'm still struggling with internet addiction. I've made progress, but it's hard. Hell, I'm spending a good chunk of time on a Saturday writing this post. I've gone nuclear and put blocks on all of my electronic devices, but I always find new websites or workarounds so I'm not sure how I'm going to kill this addiction without going full luddite. Indeed, one (small) reason that I want to become a pilot is so that I'll literally be unable to look at a stoopy screen to browse stoopy caca during work time. So those are the major gists of my life. Honestly, the greatest thorn in my side is the job stuff; the rest of my life is fine. I'm taking my discoberry flight to see if flying planes is something I want to do; I'm hoping it is and that it'll rejuvenate my life. I don't expect happiness from a job, but this 9–5 office drone caca is not it.
>>6324 Olá.
>>6373 Sounds like a pretty wonderful life Anon. Be sure to thank God eberry day for all your blessings yeah? :^)
>>6377 This, but unironically.
>>6378 Lol. I assure you I wasn't being ironic Anon. He has much, and will be held accountable for much by God. Same as all of us :^)

>>6324 You can talk to us anon. I'm the OP of this thread and I still visit it now and then
currently in cooleg, learning about stuff i'm genuinely interested with people that i am who share similar hobbies and i can easily talk to. unfortunately, it is also buttfricking expensive and i'm trying to find someway to find affordable housing for the summer or atleast an internship bc my home isn't really a home anymore. its mentally taxing to go back to my dad over there so i'm trying to find what it'll take to be an independent student here
>>6418 >>6371 Update: I'm too obese to give blood. That money was going to go to a gym membership, ironically! One with a pool so even my morbidly fatass could do cardio without destroying my joints!!

>>6498 I also applied for food stamps; I'm finally getting around to tasks I should be proud of accomplishing except the tisms and sions make me feel indifferent towards! A few more things to do and I may be living off disabilitybux like any filthy NEET wood, hopefully just enough to haul my fatass to the gym and afford food.
>>6498 I want this caca to be over soon.
>>6504 really? block bypass and a word filter? jannies do it for free!
>>6505 a new arrival, I see Where do you hail from?
>>6501 Just wanted to say good job anon, I'm glad you were able to get to where you are. I too have started being more productive since being depressed if only a little. Good luck with the future I wish you happiness.

>>5219 Kinda crazy to think that I made this thread several months ago. Navy life is alright so far (but that's because I'm still on school). Met a ton of friends and a cutie tomboy girl a few months ago, we've connected so much about a lot of things and we're still together happily (never thought I'd be so close someone because of the Navy). I'm so happy so far bros, but who knew I'd find so much fun here in the military
>>6872 congrats bro
>>6873 thanks! and evening comfybro, hopefully you had a comfy nice day hopefully friday will be a nice day too!
>>6874 np, and hopefully so.
>So anons, how's your life going? Oh, I still wish I was never born. The usual.
I feel like I've stagnated in terms of advancing in life given that I'm almost a wizard but am hopeful about the future.

>>5219 I've landed a full time job from my internship before I graduated college, fortunately its close by home. The flip side is I can't afford to move out since rent is high and home prices are in orbit. >Joining the Navy If only I came here far earlier I wood've pushed you to join the Air Force, the Navy is having horrible personnel issues that have been compounding over several decades. They are putting ships out to sea that are not properly maintained, not properly crewed and the promotions are competitive. If anything I wood implore you to work on a submarine which are given a much higher priority than surface vessels.Subs also are given better food since.. Well, you're underwater and if caca breaks your gonna drown or suffocate Admiralty has been pushing for aggressive deployments which has sustained a fatigue on sailors; you can talk to veterans who had to deal with 16-hour shifts or more. That's just for normal duties on a ship and not for a 16-hour combat operation >Muh Chairforce 1. Ur on land, not staring at water since the Earth is 70% water... 2. Living arrangements are similar to hotels, the food is better than the Navy. 3. Unless you're sent to sit in a bunker and learn what in the quack a floppy disk is; you'll be able to readily work on what you've trained for. Navy will have you working odd jobs for about 2-years before you can move into what you were originally trained for. Either way if you can get a clearance, especially a TS--you can get into the private world after leaving and multiply your salary.
Had to dump a relatively new online friend simply because I realized that I absolutely do not have enough time on my shoulders for the stuff we were doing. Only problem is, that's really only what I told him. I've got more friends I goof off with; he just came into the picture a lot later than he did, especially at a point in my life where I'm gonna have less time for goofing off. Only problem is, this new friend got super passionate about what we were doing and even made like, a well-organized server for eberrything that he's pretty much gonna have to sit in alone now. So now I'm wondering if I'm just a pooch for not just giving it to him totally straight instead of the half-truth and making him disgusted with me for his own good. I mean I'm sure he'll abandon it anyway and/or just use it for his next friend, but it hasn't even been a week and he told me that "people like me are rare to come by". Not even sure if this word soup I typed up makes sense in retrospect, but I'm glad at myself for having the self-control to cut off people if I really, truly don't have time for them. Been doing the exact opposite for way too long and it's quacked me over. >>7001 The Navy's totally quacked; have a friend who basically was the top of his class in the, like, preliminary tests, got recommendations eberrywhere for being in leader positions, but then they decided to do a second eye test while eberryone was on the ships -- and EVERYONE failed. They either had to take janny duty or get booted off the ship, and pretty much eberryone chose the latter. They're treating them all like prisoners while they slowly sail to land, and a fight pretty much breaks out eberry day due to eberryone being so irritable.
I just feel really tired. It's all so tiresome seeing imageboards die out slowly from 2019, and observing how it gets worse and worse as more and more anons leave and we're only left with the Internet addicts who can't contribute anything. It's saddening to bee honey.
>>7022 >more and more anons leave and we're only left with the Internet addicts who can't contribute anything Does that really happen? I haven't noticed it.
>>7023 I don't have any other explanation for how many boards are a lot quieter nowadays. Maybe I'm just pessimistic and they're still around, although not as active, but it's what it looks like.
>>7024 I think low activity is just a staple of places like this, that's nothing new. This board at least doesn't feel like it's less active than before, and we never had that many people in the first place.
>>7025 Also activity just goes up and down in waves, sometimes there's more and sometimes it's less. It's all a-ok.
>>7022 I come here eberry day but don't necessarily feel like I really have anything to add. I feel the same way you do.
>>7022 >>7027 >more anons leave and we're only left with the Internet addicts who can't contribute anything interesting observation
