take it easy, even if problems might arrise in nearby futures, always take it easy up until the very last moment.
when you're in a couple months or years the time fast forward is kicked in so hard you could easily ruin weeks if not months of your neetdom worrying about it ending, you'd wish you wouldnt have done that in hindsight.

alternatively, if you're lucky enough to be in a position where you can neet indefinitely, make sure the issues of others or any left over social pressure do not get in your way of taking it easy.

good luck wiz, take it easy, I hope the lifestyle will treat you well.

welcome to life bud. all you do is work and work so you can survive and keep all that shit you have. no one gets anything for free except for stupid whores and retards getting lucky on streams. I suggest picking a career you're comfortable doing and just go through the pain so you can make more than a mc donalds worker.

That's why you shouldn't listen to retards about career options because in the real world, shit can be different and you can luckily get a job even with a shit degree, you just need to talk to others but that's hard enough as it is.

Yep, there are tests for each cert. If you're looking for general IT, go with the Net+ and Security+ from ComTIA. A+ isn't worth your time or money. Getting a CCNA from Cisco is a little more recognized and desired, but also a bit more expensive. If you're looking for database management Microsoft Azure cloud certs and Amazon AWS certs are always good to put on top of CompTIA or Cisco certs. There are also specialized certs for mainframes, Linux, or anything involving computers you can think of.

The job's pretty easy but doing the same shit for hours is boring as fuck. I just started waging a week ago for the first time in my life and am already bored as hell. How do you endure this crap? The only reason it was bearable is because my "superior" is a nice and humorous guy who never really gets mad and is always understanding (best boss one could have).

imagination. Once doing the job becomes second nature, your conscious will be freed up so you can just imagine that you're someplace else. Have a little story or something in your head that you advance a bit further everyday.

Anyone else too much of a coward to quit? I hated my job since day 1 and am underpaid, but I felt guilty I'd disappoint my boss, so I could never do it. Maybe it if weren't for the few months where we were allowed to work remotely and I got paid to do almost nothing, I would've finally done it. But now they expect me to do work that no sane person would do for my wage so no way in hell they'll find a replacement, which makes me feel like I'm unable to quit as my boss will be very stressed out when something breaks and she has no clue how to fix it. But I can't take this soul-crushing office work anymore, I need to either be outside doing mindless work or making good money if I'm coding, this is the worst of both worlds.

 No.248501

>>248490
I don't see the problem. If you're really needed that much, ask for either a raise or the ability to work from home. If they refuse then they clealry don't need you that much and you can quit free of guilt. But something is wrong with you to feel guilty about quitting in the first place.

I intended to stay for 12 months at my last job, managed only 8, but wanted to quit after first contract (2 months). I quit a job that didn't pay and I hated after a week. I wouldn't call myself particularly brave when I made those decisions, I just had enough, didn't want nothing anymore.

You had a mil and you wanted yachts and shit? Fuck you anon. All I want is a small house in a quiet safe neighborhood. After that I would just continue living like a neet. No friends or gf = low expenses. Could stretch out that money for a while. I'd have to eventually get something part time or freelance but having a paid for house is a godsend.

 No.248547

its the worst fucking feeling in the world being 19 and knowing all you have to aspire to is shit jobs, working in a routine that turns life into stale monotony for the next half a century, being at the bottom of scumciety, getting treated like trash and making shit pay. really makes you want to rope just so you dont have to go through all that. if only things were different. if only they could be some other way

I feel for you young friend. I'm 29 myself and I vividly recall the existential dread I was getting at first and last class of highschool, and the disappointment when there wasn't a firing squad waiting for me after my graduation from trade school.
I recall the moment I left the main gate like it was yesterday, and it was such a normal day. Really hoped the credits would roll afterwards. They didnt.

Anyone regret taking a promotion? I started a managerial position 12 months ago and hate it. They gave it to me just because I was good at my job despite having no experience as a manager. More money so of course I said yes. I thought it'd be good, freedom to make better decisions for my team but it feels more like working at a daycare. Turns out most people have zero ability to use discretion and need their hand held all the time. I think I was meant to just be a grunt since at this rate I'm heading for the psych ward.

When I was younger my manager told me that in the big corps often they will promote people typically younger and make them work far more for far less than they usually pay managers who are 40ish and experienced.

I always was told not to bother doing manager work because you may get more money but the amount you get paid for the work makes it not worth it.

 No.248659

Yeah that seems true. My current boss who had my position before did fuck-all in comparison, we were pretty much on our own.

I only know the salaries of those in my team and it's not that much lower. I might be the first person in our company to ask for a demotion.

They will work you into the ground or under it. I worked as a teen and the manager was about 28 but looked very young and within a few months of keeping the bean counters happy he looked incredibly old.

seriously fuck these big companies they are souless and will fuck you over if they can to make an extra bean. wagie life can be so horrible. Work for a decent smaller company that has the family spirit going where the boss makes his money turns a blind eye to the workers getting a little frisky maybe even rewards them for their hard work and it is so much better.

The problem with these mega corps is they are not happy unless they made more money last year regardless of whatever the fuck is affecting sales and profit this year I hate them so much and they ned up treating everyone like retards removing free thinking that can actually be more efficient.
no longer a wagie

haha the department i slave at is collapsing, seniors from it and 2 related ones quitting due to low pay and the higher-ups ignoring equipment failing and needing to be replaced
it's triggering a chain reaction of more people quitting already
i think i will dip as well
took me so long to find this job, finally getting above subsistence level pay and getting a little bit of pocket change, and it lasts less than half a year

So my job is getting annihilated as the location is being closed for good, and the only other place I could transfer to would cost me more than what I make, so they said that if I worked my shifts on my final week I would be given a severance pay…'cept now they're saying that I have to help them tear down the store if I want to get my severance pay. I start a new job on Monday, so they are 1. Making me work for them even though they laid me off, and 2. screwing me out of my severance pay that THEY SAID THEY WOULD GIVE ME IF I WORKED MY LAST WEEK WHICH I DID.

Fuck these third party retailers of big name stores. Fuck them all to hell.

so i'm a college graduate with a degree in accounting (took me like 8 years lol). i sort of only went through it because my parents pushed me. there's also this expectation that you'll work in public accounting firms for a few years to get a CPA license but they work you to the bone so im not interested in doing that. unfortunately, without public accounting experience its pretty hard to find an entry level job in industry so i think i may just get away from accounting altogether.

does anyone have suggestions for a decent low hassle decent pay job/career i can get into with an unrelated college degree?

In my mind I'd prefer to work 5/6 days doing about 55~70 hours as it really just destroys any worries I have about money but after an hour on my first day of the week I'm already stressed, sweating excessively and thinking if I could fake an injury or sickness to get the day off. I'm not against working but working with hyper socials and the public is really getting to me

After working 50 hours and coming home to my weekend I'm asked by my parents why i'm not spending it meeting succubi, they want me to go out during LOCKDOWN. I can be fined like 2.5k USD for breaking the rules where I'm from, stupid idiots
