There is a story behind every person. We are all living different lives. I find it interesting to learn people perspective of life and how they gained that view.
People aren't the way they are just because they want to, they have deeper reasons from the past that created them. So what's your story?

Funny, I feel the same way. Im kinda scared of all the stuff they say about it, and I dont even know if im really that independent. Im just scared if this college is right and all the choices, there's so many choices and it seems overwhelming. I also looked into stoicism too and lots of self-help channels usually when I get super anxious. Im just scared it won't be okay.

I want to elaborate on this post I wrote earlier, some things happened lately as I got really close to another person this past week.
Through work I got into contact with this person and I only seen her a few times the past year but apparently we "clicked" as we talked about a lot of deep things and I talked about my frustration with [...]

In your opinion when did the internet die?

In my opinion things started to decline around 2008/2009 but didn't get really bad until 2010 and then around 2012/2013 is when the internet died.

I'd agree with that timeline. Basically the rise of smartphones led to three major shifts: content was being optimized for mobile which, which means less information density and more fluff. This led to the shift away from the internet as a place for exchange information (e.g. messageboards where people play role as both content creator and consumer) into a pubsub type model where few people create content and everyone else consumes. Finally, this naturally paved the way for walled gardens to take advantage of a captive audience, which is where we are today: the majority of communication happens on a hand-few of $BIGCO platforms, and the styles of communication are oriented towards real-time, bite-size messages.

T think the 2014 controversy brought irreparable damage to imageboards as a whole. There was a time when no corner of the internet felt like home until I found aesthetically regressive web communites like wiby or tilde.

Let's talk about computers and such. I think they are important considering the amount of time we spend on them.

I've come to realize how I'm deeply entrenched in the Apple ecosystem. I have a macbook air, an iPhone 5s, and an iPad mini. When I am home i have an external setup that i connect my laptop to but other than that gone are the days of my full desktop use. I don't game, I don't [...]

Elementary is nice, especially because it's well-designed. I agree that the window manager is annoying and it's much more resource-heavy than it used to be, but the design and usability is good.

Of course, now I use a Mac, so lol

Yes, I really like the design of Elementary, and their human interface guidelines are some of the most thoughtful I've seen in a long time. System coherence is up there with Haiku, as long as you don't try to do anything different.

But the resource usage thing is what comfiness rests on pretty much for me. I can't get by without that being low.

Since this board has so many anime threads, I thought this thread would be a good refresher. I recently signed up on one of the retro film private trackers that doesn't have invites closed, and it looks like it has a lot of good stuff on it. For now I'll post-

Have you ever watched a show or movie and there's just something that's not explained at all and unintentionally adds absurd comedy to whatever it's in? That "huh--what?" moment before laughing. It's a great feeling.

For example, in the show Kaiketsu Zubat, the main character Ken Hayakawa enters most episodes (I think?) riding some sort of vehicle. Sometimes it's a boat, sometimes[...]

The inverted danish japanese animation i'm watching throws tons of esoteric concepts in but twists them in a absurd way.

It's unlike most they know what they're talking about but chose to twist everything. Not for plot points it was just twisted.

It seams like it should be esoteric humor but the plot is too serious.

PlayTime (1967) kinda. But for stuff that is just weird and not explained could also be Twin Peaks for the most part.

This thread is for hikikomori and NEETs to discuss personal issues regarding the NEET lifestyle.

NEET (Not In Education Employment Or Training)

The Japanese Ministry of Health, defines hikikomori as people who refuse to leave their parents' house, do not work or go to school and isolate themselves away from society and family in a single room for a period of 6 months or more.

If you are not a NEET or hikikomori don't post in this thread.

I'm afraid there is nothing comfy about being a hikikomori. I have a certain feeling of dread.

Inspired by the comfy music thread. What are some of your favorite comfy vidya games?

I personally love Animal Crossing and can't wait for New Horizons.

Ah don't worry, AW was beatable by 12 yo me so you should manage. It's turn based too so you have all the time to think about your moves. The hard mode has some difficult maps but I think you should be able to beat about every mission in the normal mode on your first try.
I'm getting back into those because there was a remake announced for the switch and I loved these games as a kid.

A thread to meditate on not dying I guess, please share your narrow misses here and try and remember how great it is to be alive.

I got in a car accident yesterday. It wasn't a terrible jaws-of-life sort of accident, but it did total the rental car I was in. It's odd, since it was a rental I pretty much just fill out some paperwork and pay things off and move on. Even at the time all I had [...]

Grief is one of those that people,
Don't really understand.
And I think that grief is a part of everybody's life,
From what I've experienced.
There's nobody who's spared an introduction to grief,
Or a relationship with grief
There's nothing wrong with you if you feel overwhelmed or overcome by it
I find that to be very common,
And so to speak, normal

wasting time aimlessly, being worthless. except there's no line, no end*

nothing sucks more than people who go, "okay, enough fun. I'm a balanced human gonna do productive things now, thanks bye."

like no, wtf. that makes me bad for not stopping. duck. productive, healthy humans somehow happy and functional simultaneously. ew. they're a different species.

*except the inevitable. killing each other instead of one killing another. very uncool and cliche.
