Comfort. What hits the spot for you? What gets you feeling nice and comfy? That sweet relaxed feeling.

For me it's junk food. Particularly when I've had something to drink and am starting to play some fun game or when I've just opened an interesting thread on wizardchan. Nothing beats that feeling of just devouring an absolute mountain of pure sweet goodness, the feeling of ordering and opening a takeaway, making something delicious (pic related is extremely easy to make).

a friday night without something nice to eat is terrible, just having something to snack on makes everything so much better. Its as much as the ritual of doing it as eating it. I fit right into you description. I love everything with salt, like potato chips. Its absolut comfy spot.

 No.250989

>>250985
That's exactly it, the ritual plays a massive role in it. I love just going to the store with an empty stomach and a bit of money and buying a load of food to eat. Nothing beats it. And yeah you're right, without some nice food it just feels empty.

nothing really, except I just remembered my slim PS2 and felt an emotional wave of comfy and nostalgia, playing that on my trusty old CRT tv is always a relaxing trip, especially considering its meaning to me, it was my first console mod

I found it donated in a wet box outside a value village at night with a broken disc drive, I gave it a used $5 hard drive and filled it with all the games I could never hope to play back it in the PS2 days, it was also my first time doing tiny smd soldering and was a smashing success

I really should dust it off and plug it back together soon, shitposting on this site is not comfy anymore … watching bad modern anime is not comfy, all my modern games suck

 No.254003

Junk food used to be that for me, but now I feel too guilty about spending money on unnecessary food and feeling sick afterwards. Making pizza is pretty comfy and fills that void, but it takes days of waiting. Playing through dmc1 on higher difficulties for ranks is very nice at night. It makes me remember simpler times and forget about life's work. It's an all-in-one theme park of a time in games that's never coming back. Spending all day on the floor is very comfy, too bad it's already getting too cold for that. Reminds me of playing on consoles on the floor 15 years ago to be as close to the tv as possible. Still the same principle with being close to the monitor for maximum immersion. Comfort is quite rare these days, gotta experiment for new ways to get immersed in a pleasant flow. The darker the room, the easier it is to relax usually.

 No.257175

Just not working is glorious. Whenever I have an extended period of time where I don't have to work, I'm happy.

I would sell my fucking soul if it meant I never had to work again. I'm 24 now, I genuinely, honestly would die at 30 if it meant I didn't ever have to wageslave, and I'm not even depressed. I just hate working THAT much.

> honestly would die at 30 if it meant I didn't ever have to wageslave


30 is too young for me, considering that you went to school, which is like been imprisoned with niggers for 10 or 12 years, depending where you live. That's because you need at least 5 or 6 years to recover from the PTSD caused by been at school and exposed to niggers and nigger brainwashing since you were a kid, so I'd say 40 is a good age to die as a wiz. You get to experience the joy of freedom only possible after you are healthy from nigger memories and nigger influence for 17 years. Hermit reclusive like life with escapism and good hobbies, away from normalniggers, that's the wiz life for me.

Anything that helps me escape into a world of fantasy and not remind me of real life and stupid people. World-building, pre-2008 games, pre-2008 movies, classic books, manga, etc, especially fantasy and isekai. I prefer older stuff as I find most modern stuff is just too vulgar and degenerate. With world-building, I can spend hours in pure bliss just in my own little fantasy world, creating new stories or researching things to add to my world. I usually cycle through different media, so I'm not bored of one thing and can constantly stay comfy. Right now, I'm going through a manga binge. I do have comfy days or routines for different times of the year. For example, I have a LotR EE marathon every Christmas, I find myself playing strategy games like Anno 1404 a lot more during winter as well.

I also love gardening, it helps me feel like I at least have a little bit of control over something and mould a little part of the real world to my liking. Plus, it is so rewarding to actually put effort into something and actually gain from it, not like the drudgery of a dead-end job. I know it's cliche, but there is honestly something about sitting down in the garden on a quiet hot summers day, putting on some classic music (imagine Joe Hisaishi's One Summer's Day), glass of cold juice in hand, and being surrounded by your growing flowers and vegetables, with butterflies fluttering around and the scent of cut grass. I am already planning next year's garden, building raised beds to make it easier to weed and harvest, as well as planting a dwarf sweet cherry tree so I can have free fresh fruit in a few years.

I love walking, going through country and forest parks, or up into the mountains, or along quiet coastal paths. Especially during weekdays when there are hardly anyone about. Get a good day, even in winter, with fresh air and a comfortable pace, just re-energises me and helps me snap out of any spiral I'm going though. It also allows me to immerse in my own little world, like "here I am, a medieval monk going on my pilgrimage to the top of this Holy Mountain". Gives me ideas for my world-building and helps me put some parts of it into perspective to make it a bit more realistic. I'm not particularly fussed about my health, but another good thing about spending a day walking is I've exercised! Like gardening, after a long day walking, sitting down on an isolated bench with some picnic or takeaway fish and chips and watching the sun set over the harbour and beach is very comfy and rewarding.

Food is indeed another great comfort. I've found that an all-greasy/sweet meal just makes me feel worse after a while, so I like to have a nice balanced meal. And by balanced, I don't mean nutritionally balanced, I'm still going to enjoy "unhealthy" food, but it's going to be a bit more varied than just processed fat and sugar. Like having a good mash and steak, or a cheeseburger and fries, or spaghetti and meatballs smothered in cheese, followed by brownie and ice cream or cheesecake or apple tart, rather than just stuffing myself full of doritos and mountain dew. I don't drink alcohol, too poor and too afraid of becoming an alcoholic, but I do indulge in flavourful drinks like a malt milkshakes and fruit smoothies. Takeaway is fine once in a while, but I prefer to make my own food. Not only does it reassure me of the ingredients, but I think putting a little bit of effort in makes the food all the more satisfying.

So I do a lot of comfy things. I need a lot of comfy things to get me through this life. Best thing about these hobbies is that they are relatively cheap and you can spend hours on them at a time if you want.

honestly don’t even know anymore. Used to be playing games but I struggle trying to balance video games and work to the point where I have to completely cut out of video games because I will quit my work and play 15 hours a day non-stop (single player games like rpgs).

Yesterday was an awful day, over 35ºC and it didn't decrease much at night. Went to sleep with the fan on and the bedsheets felt sticky and itchy. Early this morning, wind from the south started blowing (I live in southern hemisphere so south winds=cold winds). Temperature already dropped like 10º compared to yesterday and the storm hasn't even started. As much as I hate summer, this is one of the best feelings in the world.

It's around the transition to the next month as it happened recently:
Got my NEET bux, which eases my mind, because I just need some essential things to get comfy.

Of course, the yummy junk food - but also good coffee, sparkling mineral water, calming and warming herbal teas as an addition to my benzo medication - which isn't exactly cheap, because the insurance only pays for some weeks, after that you have to pay much more. And no, this isn't creating a fluffy dream world, it just works out for the basics - little anxiety / mind fucks; good sleep when I want to.
Also a good book and a last tea, before the pill kicks in.

Then, aside that, the setting is mostly a good TV show, [Anime, movie] from before ~2010, (I seem to have that in common with others here) …
Or coffee and cigarette and some metal music to play an oldschool shooter.
But sometimes I go hard and drink myself to hell, with nostalgic music.
Only comfy if enough benzos to bear the next day.

I also experienced that long walks ease the mind and make better sleep and the usual computer thing more enjoyable.

My first directive is that it hasn't to be perfect - just as little as possible obligations and being able to laze around, living out the years without too much "excitement".

Things used to be much comfier before the internet took over my life. There used to be good shows on TV to watch. I had fun games to play on my Windows 95 PC and on my PlayStation and Gameboy. The TV was a modestly-sized Sony Trinitron that sat on a coffee table so the optimal viewing position was sitting on the floor. There used to be a video rental store a block away from home with 99-cent movies and candy and a frozen yogurt shop next door. I used to have no problem reading a book or drawing.

Now, all I do is use the internet. It's like I have no control over my actions. No matter how much I might want to do something else, I cannot. I think I may have died and gone to Hell and this is all a form of ironic punishment for being an internet troll when I was alive.

I feel like some of these experiences could be recaptured if I could just make myself spend some of my money on movies or books that I actually enjoy. I have a pathological aversion to spending money as if I will someday come to regret even the smallest unnecessary purchase. I have a developed a sort of self-consciousness as well where I find it troubling to watch a movie or play a game if anyone else at all might be listening or watching so I hide in my room with headphones on. I fantasize about using my savings to build a large shed in my parents' yard and have it converted into a guest house so I can put a couch and a TV in it and watch my shows and play vidya in solitude. I could even find a CRT if I really fancied having one. Maybe I could install a vending machine with snacks in it. I doubt these things could really pry me away from the internet or foster a sense of comfort.
