I'm 35 and have never worked a day in my life. Nor do I intend to, despite being overly qualified. Spend my whole day playing old vidya and reading manga.
I've only had 2 shirts, 2 pairs of pants and 2 pairs of shoes for the past 10 years, which I wash alternatively.
Modest inheritance + don't spend too much. 50€ a month in food give or take, 10-20 running water, 15 internet. Thank fuck I don't pay for energy, I bought solar panels and batteries a long time ago.
I don't eat much because I have my sugar spikes under control and am not too tall. Most days I just eat a few eggs and some veggies. I try not to overexercise in order to eat less, too.
24 eggs = 4 euro here -> I eat 150 eggs a month, which means I spend 25 euro in eggs, that's half my protein
chickpeas are 2 eur a kilo, I eat 3 kilos a month, which means I spend 6 euros on chickpeas
This with olive oil is over half my calories and all of my protein, and I still have around 15 euros to spare on leafy greens and nuts every now and then, when they're cheap because they're about to go bad. When I do eat meat I spend a bit more than 50 though, but I eat it rarely.
I have an old PC, I only play old vidya, But I try to get as much out of them as possible.
Same few games for ages:
Fallout New vegas
TES: Morrowind and Oblivion
M&B: Warband + mods
and a bunch of retro shooters like DOOM
I'm technically a leech, only my parents aren't alive. I just don't spend much. Internet is a cheap source of entertainment, so is hiking every now and then.
My shedule: Steady sleeping schedule, exercise every morning, sunbathe every afternoon, play in between, hike on weekends. Life is good.
My diet is basically.
- Spinach + nuts + dried chickpeas
- Slightly steamed broccoli + 10 eggs
>>193381>150 eggs a month>I eat 3 kilos [of chickpeas] a month
3000/30 = 100 grams per day
150/30 = 5 per day
2 eggs for morning, 33 g of chickpeas
2 eggs for lunch, 33 g of chickpeas
1 egg for dinner, 33 g of chickpeas
Same + didn't bother with education. Art hobbies are an infinite well of passing time with so many avenues of depth, growth and frustration (very important to include some frustration in your activities) despite requiring very little in resources. If you work digitally you can simply steal the software.
Doing very well beyond that wiz. With a bit of circumstantial luck, wealth is found effortlessly by having little need more than by having lots of money.
I’m also 29yo neet who have never worked a single day in his life. I dread for my future because other than potential rent income from some house I will be dirt poor. I will go as neet as much as I could go because I’m a retard and incapable of work. But even if I could make a stable neet life I just don’t wanna live after my age 40, old age will absolutely suck as single man.
I'm a 29 year old neet as well. my plan is to just prepare for being a vagabond. I have a friend who was homeless for over 3 years and he says it's not as horrible as everyone makes it out to be
Potatoes are slightly cheaper than rice I find, just because the carbs take longer to burn.
The real strategy guide to NEETbux living is you talk to all the butcheries and supermarkets around town and organize a time to buy their excess meat they're about to throw out. Meat is the only expensive thing, if you solve this you've solved the NEETbux poverty issue.
Organ meats are extremely underrated and you should add them to your diet.
>I've only had 2 shirts, 2 pairs of pants and 2 pairs of shoes for the past 10 years, which I wash alternatively.
how is that possible? doesn't your family buy you clothes for holidays(christmas and birthday)?
i never buy clothes because my family gives them to me on christmas mostly
Lol if ur struggling that much just get some ez warehouse job just to pay the bills
>>193582>ez warehouse job
Warehouse jobs aren't ez and they're filled to the brim with normalfags, criminals, bullies, drugies and low life scum.
You must belong to one of those categories.
He comes from a long lineage of kings and queens and other royalty. Labor is simply foreign to his DNA and he cannot be reasonably expected to earn a living with an hourly wage, doing all manner of silly, trivial tasks. A man of his status should be an advisor to the president or at the very least, hold a modest title and some land.
Fuck you for reintroducing me to the channel.
how can you tolerate hollow knight mechanics? punished for dying :/>>193578
my clothes are pretty old too, the irony is that they were made for manual labour. browse military gear shops and buy hiking footwear, one pair of boots and a coat will last you a good decade maybe more. crabs go through many brands and overpay for the potato sack they got on yet I wear the same old clothes with no sign of tear
How dare you? This man is an aristocrat of the soul, he would not be a mere lacky to some bourgeois politician.
Whats the point of this thread? Open a blog or something retard.
he needs to brag to feel better about himself
What degrees do you have if you're overqualified?
There are tons of /dep/ threads if you want to whine about something. This is a thread for winners.
I'm hoping to put myself into a similar situation some time within the next 5 years, if I can bear to work for that long.
Don't think I'd mind living very frugally
Fellow YKK poster.
never worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own
>>193622>never worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own
Didn't Jesus also made a contradictory to this words Parable of the Prodigal Son?
just get a job bro
10 years with the same thinkpad and counting…
Ignoring oncoming problems doesn't make them go away. One day reality is going to hit you like a ton of bricks.
blatant anti neet post, still up
it may be anti neet but it doesnt really disparage against neets
it's the same you moron
that guy is essentially telling the op to work, how is that not disparaging against being a neet?
the mods are either retards with no reading comprehension or they agree with that normalfag and will not enforce the fucking rules
disparaging would be something like "omg youre such a manbaby lol baby gonna cry? gonna cry?"
I have an old late 2015 iMac that can barely run anything
Most of those games aren't really old and some (like Project Zomboid and Kenshi) are very relevant.
>>193645>train some useful skill in case you ever need money instead of wasting time on video games
how is that not telling him to work you dumb fuck? is a pile of cash magically going to materialise right before him as he gets proficient in whatever "useful skill" he should learn?
>he should have a plan b
concern trolling, even assuming you genuinely care (lol) your shitty advice is unwelcome and against the rules>>193640
oh i guess it's alright as long as one does not explicitly write down "I disparage or show contempt for the celibate, NEET, or reclusive lifestyles." :^)
a bot would do a better job cleaning up this place than the current mods
I work in a warehouse and it may be the easiest and best warehouse job a formerly 15 year neet could ever hope for.
I work in the office typing in orders and printing labels to give to the guy who works in the warehouse who retrieves and wraps the stock. No hard labor on my part. Only other guy working there is the boss who spends all day on the phone. I live 10 minutes away and the last in the warehouse gives me a lift to and from work every day. On days he's not in, like this week because he's at army training, the boss himself does the labor and drives me to and from work. And in September he will let me work part time while I do my degree. It is too good to be true but I miss having free time.
What’s your position?
>despite being overly qualified.
The delusions again…
Thanks for the thread, it was inspirational. I would enjoy a similar lifestyle if / when I eventually become NEET. Currently working a useless job I don't like and only do for the money. Which I don't even need that bad, because I lucked out on a risky investment and thus have more savings than most people twice my age. I'm also pretty frugal and could afford to eat with 100€ or less a month.
So far I've just been too cowardly to assert myself and quit my job. Doing so might block me from working in the field again if I ever needed a job. But I could probably find some other employment if needed. I also have a certain degree.
Ever try the old game called Descent? I play it still on a computer my dad bought us in 07 lol. I only recently found tons of player made content produced over 20 years.
>>193621>Eventually you might need to go to a dentist or deal with other medical issue.
Are you fucking retard or 10 years old ?
All meds now are toxic don't cure shit, I know a friend who died by cancer his savings,job and medical insurance didn't cover the costs of teatment, he spended all his money on treatment for hope of being cured he used to work a decent job.
You sure have been inside my head when I made this thread, to be able to tell and be so sure about what my intentions were.
But. I don't care about wizards who get triggered by the thought of another Wiz being happy and doing well in life.
Always remember minimizing your cost is almost always far more easy than increasing your income. If you own a home/live with your parents you can live with roughly 1000$ a month at the very most, this would include food,gas,basic healthcare insurance. In some rural places you can even live with 500$-750$ including rent. I know someone who was spending about 7k a year.
Changing your lifestyle can also benefit you financially, eating healthy and cooking your own meals tend to be less expensive than chugging in restaurants or even buying fast food.
Being minimalist gives you freedom and flexibility plus you don't worry about many problems that emerge with too much stuff.
Any wizard who has some bit of sense to himself should also learn how to pirate. Do not pay for entertainment unless it is absolutely necessary. Every movie and tv show can be found online. Most books and almost all comics can be found online if you dig some russian websites and telegram and torrents. Video games are a given but I even start to play board games on VASSAL which is basically an emulator for hex and counter games. Rather not pay 75$ for some niche ww2 simulationist game.
>>193821>play board games on VASSAL
You can play board games online?
Yes you can! Two softwares are used commonly, Vassal and Table Top Simulator.
Vassal is a free software designed for hex and counter games mostly, Tabletopsimulator (TTS) is on steam and mostly for other type of board games, but I think the price is worth it. You can find many if not all board games on TTS, many of them are scripted too, you can play gloomhaven, kingdom death, secret hitler, cards against humanity even 40k miniatures or rpgs. It is far more difficult with vassal as many hex counter companies do release vassal versions of their games but do not share scenario booklets online, but with some search you can find pirated versions and play maybe 1/3 of all hex and counter games online for free without paying anything. You can also design/upload your own images/maps if you have the time. You can also play cardgames for free, few years ago it was a software called cockatrice I dunno if its still around but I recall playing quite a lot of mtg there.
>I'm 35 and have never worked a day in my life. Nor do I intend to, despite being overly qualified
The biggest mystery is why OP thinks he's 'overly qualified' if he's never worked a day in his life at 35?
I'm a landlord from inheritance too
There also fantasy grounds, roll20 foundryvtt.
There is a minimal kind of effort that every living creature need to go through in order to persist in this realm, be it provided to it by other entities or done by itself, if wizard wants to keep on living when reaching old age then better to start doing something now to persist in the future, be it that conditions for possible future defunction are present.
This matter goes beyond wizardly and normalcy.
In the real world, you could get a post-post doctorate in every single degree and still not be worth as much as a guy who volunteered somewhere a few minutes on a Saturday.
Actually, you'll be worse off because to get a job at Wendy's you'll just have to omit all of that education, pretend to be a lot dumber than you are, not to mention you'll have a big gap in employment history.
I myself have two STEM degrees. They seem to be worth a lot until just after I got them.
And I kind of bought a house for next to nothing during the Greater Depression and the way things are now I can easily retire at 55 working part time, at a job with ridiculous job security. But it's in redneck nowhere so you can't start a professional career here, the few related jobs posted all require experience.
The only possible way to use them is to move to a big city and pay 2k a month in rent, assuming I even get one of those jobs that's 2/3 what I can expect to make. 2-3x my current hours and I have less dollars and cents than I otherwise would. Before taxes. All for promises of "maybe" I'll be worth more in the future. I've heard that before. As far as I'm concerned things are perfect the way they are now.
Don't do the degree! Everything requires experience! You're better off putting everything in an index fund! That's the only thing I got of value from 6 years of school in finance! That and how to fuck the government!
So Wizards will gladly accept defunction when there is no longer support.
Why not then just kill oneself if your statement is true?
When one fulfills their destiny, or is unable to proceed on their great work by the insolent meddling of the masses, then and only then will he abandon his life in this form.
So essentially wizards are just meme distributors?
what held me back is not having a cellphone and not having a car
these things make your job prospects limited. i don't want to pay 40 dollars a month for a fucking phone. that's like a day of wage cuckery
i also don't want to pay car insurance for a car
No, there are wizards in every species, meme distribution is just a consequence.
You must be consuming at minimum 4 liters of olive oil a month, that is about 20-40 euros a month. Doesn't add up.
Its not comfy, I finished New Vegas 5 times, a gaming pc able to run Call of Battlefield 16 is a basic human need. To afford that you need to receive western world bux, anywhere else its impossible.
Your USGI M81 Woodland half-shelter poncho protects you from the blazing Baja sun while mine was keeping moonlit snow off me while Canadian winter camping. These things are miracles of simple engineering.
What actually holds you back is that the world has become so overpopulated and over-surveilled that there is no empty, unclaimed arable land for you to move onto and have for yourself.
why is this site of all places being targeted by these kinds of bots?
The internet is 80% bots now.
plan b is killing yourself. always works.
realistically in excess of 90% but what can you do
I don't really see the point of this thread. You're not doing anything interesting or special. You basically made a thread to tell us that you eat a horribly bland diet, play old video games, and occasionally go for walks? Is there anything interesting you do with your time at all? Do you have any unique thoughts to share or literally anything worth posting? I'm not saying this to be harsh but I genuinely don't know what this thread is for.
So is same will happen to you.
You are normalfags are way too retarded and incompetent to notice and to do something even if they do.
You know how to be normal, but you don't know how to be human or someone worth his shit, holier than thou faggot.
>>194337>Actually, you'll be worse off because to get a job at Wendy's you'll just have to omit all of that education
Shouldn't it be advantageous for them to hire people with STEM degrees? They'd be much better workers and understand the more technical aspects of flipping burgers. I'll never understand this job market.
OP will never work, but he lives almost like a bum or an old man that has nothing except what he's wearing.
I would rather have a HO job tbh.
HR demons know very well that non educated workers will last longer being stuck in a low tier shitty job because they have no other future and will say yes to everything.
Its a neet thread. Its literally what the site is about
That's true. I used to work at a grocery store with people who were employees there for decades before I arrived. Mostly middle-aged succubi who never got their degrees and had no other prospects. Seems that is the ideal demographic for retail. They don't want to hire someone who has even the slightest chance of finding a better job in the future.
