Does anyone else suffer from this issue? It seems to me that I have trouble constructing sentences when I am talking to people in real life, and even I get my words mixed up when I talk to myself on camera (I make video journals for myself). The issue gets worse when I argue with someone and my words get slurred. I am jealous of people who can quickly form sentences while I need sometime to make up those sentences. I see these same people who can make fluid conversation and I sometimes wonder if there is something wrong with me. It's like they know instantly what to say and how to say it.

A bit of history: When I was a year old I suffered from a seizure that delayed my ability to articulate speech until the age of 7. My mother told me that when I was 5 I could only speak a couple of words. I was in speech classes in school up all the way to 6th grade.

How does one improve speech?

Try speaking fairly slowly and thoughtfully, taking short pauses. Normans hate it, but they won’t hold it against you.

Solitary confinement is a punishment for a reason. Yet do not advise me to talk to people, I won't do it. I can't decide which is worse, becoming mentally ill or enduring another's company. Of course, if I could be alone and retain my sanity it would be great. But is it possible? If so, how?

I took up journaling everyday, then a poem everyday, then a story everyday. Cultivation is, by itself, a worthy pursuit.

I really don't think there's any good reason to let yourself decay. Death comes for all, but before it does I know wanted more from life. I'm taking control back from my mind. I won't let myself be some victim or blame people anymore.

It's not like I can do it all the time, but that doesn't matter. I do my best, I got results, and it feels like I'm living in a different world.

Leads to Cultivation:

https://marisapeer.com/rules-of-the-mind/

tl:dr- use words and images that make you feel good whenever you can, the repetition wires it into your brain overtime. You'll get results eventually, painful thoughts wire twice as fast so the natural state of man isn't that great. It can be overcome by letting go of the words you ascribe to as 'you' and finding new words/images to associate with. This alters your personality- the old you no longer exists. This is growth.

https://www.kapilguptamd.com/kapil-gupta-podcasts/

tl:dr- see reality-as-is instead of trying to build imaginations around what reality 'should' be. Two illusions of humanity:

1)We believe we can control the mind

2)We think we have time

You just do whatever makes you happiest like any other entropy slaves. For people who have high levels of empathy that's helping people, for people that are narcissistic psychopaths they go into finance or something and steal old ladies retirement checks to glorify their own egos. People just do what they do, believe what they believe. There's no reason a belief in the mechanistic nature of the universe should dictate those people all share their other beliefs.

10 year neet, 34. I had a job at a restaurant in 07, no references (the original bosses there don't even work there anymore). College dropout.


My boy tore his canine ACL (called CCL in dogs), a tendon that holds the knee in position laterally. Without it each bone grinds down onto cartilage until the cartilage is gone and the bone grinds, creating agonizing pain - surgery is not optional, it's necessary. I truly love my dog (technically my younger brother's), who is 8, still alert, fit, and energetic, and has at least 5 years left. I walk with him almost every day and have explored local and national parks with him during the past 6 years. I have already wept tears over the changes that are to come, and the abrupt change this caused in both of our lives, as he is housebound per vet's directive.

We're looking at 2,500 - 3,000 total cost, each knee. Worse, the odds of his other CCL tearing are 40%, so I want to prepare for that.


Any tips on dealing with the neet question when applying? Or what specific jobs, even wagecuck jobs, are easiest to get into? Thankfully I have a car (leftover from early 20s) drive anywhere so that's not an issue.

This isn't about me anymore. Willing to do shit labor as well since I'm somewhat healthy/fit (I don't have massive stamina to do serious hardcore shit though) so if you have any suggestions on that I'd appreciate it. I can quit once I have enough. I would prefer max full time if possible to just grind and get this money

 No.161835

Two things I should add and clarify. There may be treatment in the 900-1500 range, but they're considered inferior and prone to breaking. It may be needed as a last resort.

The other is that my mom may end up caving in and paying for it due to the unexpected nature. My parents are financially secure and my dad saved pretty well. My dad will have some understandable resentments about his wife paying this, and my mom is very generous and loving in nature (says the neet, go figure), so I think she will end up simply paying for this, leaving me the opportunity of playing nurse during the crucial recovery phase where new bone has to grow without dangerous exertion or falls interrupting it.
Still, I don't want to put this strife between my parents, and even if mom does pick up this hefty tab whole-hog (younger brother, technical owner, may contribute some but tl;dr isn't in a good position either) I want to make sure there's money set aside for his other knee.

Maybe you could say you've been taking care of a sick relative all these years. I had great luck with a temp agency (back in 2006, USA). It was general, unskilled office work. I worked at the same office for years. Also, night shift jobs are often easier to get into.

Best of luck from a fellow thirty-something NEETwiz!

too bad that will be automated soon according to business leaders, but then again I see Wanted adds on the back of trucks, buses, and fast food, and retail stores I go to.

There's so much demand for developers that people fresh out of a two-week bootcamp are hired with premium wages. There are housewives writing react applications and zoomers in high school making mobile apps. Anyone that isn't taking advantage of the tech bubble is an idiot. It has never been easier to learn and to make money by typing text on a computer. I seriously feel bad for the poor saps that do manual labor or stack shelves because they're too stupid to work with abstractions.

I've always been fascinated by twitch streamers and youtubers. It's amazing how these guys can leech of a bunch of normies for so little, some of my favorite streamers and youtubers have the shortest temper ever and personality, their not wizards but they are clearly most likely not the most acceptable people in the world, i'm good when it comes to sitting in front of the PC and playing games and giving my commentary in thing, altho I do not know how have a proper conversation IRL I can give my opinion on something if I have the time to, and I would give anything to become a anituber or twitch streamer, I'd like to think my content is somewhat better than most out there anybody else had any dreams or ambition to make it online?

During the fairly early heydays of the YouTuber era, there was a time where I somewhat toyed around with the idea of doing similar not just for monetary gain, but for a sense of purpose & to perhaps establish my own little community. It wasn't until 2013/2014, where I'd often find myself daydreaming of how it all might work, but before too long, even back then, I'd then remind myself of the simply cold, hard realities of the matter as described perfectly by these two wizzies, >>161690 >>161705

>I follow several Youtubers who have been pretty active for a decade and they never make it because they're fucking boring and only burgers like myself would ever watch some ugly guy playing an old game, giving sparse comments on a monotone voice.


Yep. With my startling lack of personality or original ideas, this is all it would have amounted to for me. On top of this, I live in quite a small home with my parents and, as a result, never really had the space necessary to stream and or make let's play, even when I still entertained the idea of doing so. I've got that sort of space now, but, beyond simply ditching the idea ages ago, the anxiety of putting myself out there is just too much to get past. Even if I did, like you said, I'd just be another boring asshole droning into a mic, while playing some uninteresting game or two, so there's really no point in expending the effort to just be another forgettable cunt adding to an already far oversaturated landscape. Even so, in some sense, it still feels like I missed the boat on my generation's "thing", in the same way I feel like I missed the boat on bitcoin, similar to how older people feel like they missed the boat by not investing in Microsoft. Even in the early days of streaming & lets plays however, I would've never made it. Perhaps I would've managed to attract a small & committed base of fans had I actually possessed the means of doing it back then, but beyond that, this sort of thing was never meant for a wizzie like me.

As an aside, it still blows my mind how much Youtubers, and such, actually get paid for doing nothing more than sitting around and playingPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>and young people are fearful of marriage having seen so many fail
They're right on that but I fail to see how that would increase the number of celibates as normans have more sex outside marriage than not. But anyway, we can't expect an honest explanation from the washington post.

IMO, the obnoxious r9k faggots have it right on this matter. Now that all moral sanctions on succubi have been lifted, they're free to pursue the most attractive men with no commitment and leave the others behind. Almost any single succubus can get a harem of orbiters of her own with relative ease these days and select the more attractive men, especially with the internet. And dating apps just make it easier for succubi to just go straight to the more attractive guys looking for easy sex.
