For the past 5 years I've never been woken up by an alarm clock, my health is better, I've played more video games than ever before and most of all: my time has been spent enjoying things and never wasted. Why haven't you swallowed the neet pill?

I'm a NEET and I wake up on a normal schedule with an alarm clock to go work out. Honestly NEETs who don't practice good hygiene and daily routines disgust me.

>>53009460 I don't believe we are meant to wake up at specific times. It's unnatural. There are 24 hour gyms anyway. >>53009466 I will inherit the house. If not the government here legally cannot make a person involuntary homeless. You only see drug addicts/alcoholism, illegal immigrants on Britain's streets. I would be provided with accomodation for my needs (it would not be shared living due to Asperger's and social anxiety).

>>53009595 Well that would be hard. My parents paid off their mortgage years ago. The government (council) would have to find me accomodation if I couldn't live here. There's social housing options. If druggies and ex-convict scum can get accomodation, I think I have a good chance too.

>>53009442 maybe a few decades ago I could be able to be a neet. before the increase immigration and everyone clogging up the social wellfare system. there would have been empty apartments literally given away for people in need, now theres a 10 year waiting queue and immigrants and drug addicts go ahead in the line. being on neetbux/disability/wellfare is cracked down on more and more due to increased pressure on the taxes due to having to accomdate every newly importen citizen. yep sure love this new exicting multicultural society we have tho!

>>53009766 honestly i have been full time employed and i hate it every day i have been NEET and i enjoyed it. besides my parents (who actually are quite well off and could sustain my existence) constantly whining and bitching at me to get a job (even when nobody would hire me despite applying everywhere) it was basically perfect now i'm a wagie again and i hate it. it makes me so miserable every day so, from the perspective of someone that has been a NEEt and a wagie, NEET life is infinitely superior and only has issues when other people go out of their way to deliberately create these issues FUCK i want to be NEET. at this point i stopped talking to other people, i used to want to get married and have a kid. NOPE, i can't be happy and employed at the same time, so i refuse to start a family since that will prevent me from retiring early (my only life goal now)

>>53009460 One of the huge benefits of being a NEET is that you don't have to follow social conventions anymore. People don't realize how great it is to be a NEET until they've done it themselves for an extended period of time. All of the pressures you have put on you from your daily life vanish and you can finally be content.

I was a NEET for a period of about 6 months after I graduated and it was quite honestly the best 6 months of my life. I'd wake up in my apartment usually between 8 and 10 AM, make a nice breakfast, leisurely eat lunch while browsing the net, reading the news, and playing some vidya. Then I'd walk over to the gym and work out for an hour or two. After that it depended on how I felt. Maybe I'd read a book out on the grass, maybe I'd go for a swim, spend some time practicing my French. Then in the afternoon/evening I'd walk to the grocery store and pick out some fresh ingredients to make dinner. After dinner I'd usually play vidya with some friends until late at night, then go to sleep whenever I got tired. I could have done that for years but the money ran out and I needed to sell my soul to survive.

Programmer NEET life was basically a vacation. the best vacation i ever had Not all of us will ever get a wife or kids. To imply that "working = wife and kids" is disingenuous to say the least, possibly a cope I'd rather retire in my 30s and be single than wagie up to my 60s because i have a wife and kid to pay for. Being employed is incompatible with happiness, in my case. prove me wrong and i'll pay you $5000 in bitcoin

>>53012151 Sure it was pretty ignorant for me to think that job = wife and kids, however job does give you expendable income to enjoy yourself with. When I graduated I was jobless for 4 months, at first I loved having so much free time to fuck around and play viday all day but it was very short lived. I couldn't go out with my friends because I had no money, and had to ask them to buy me drinks. I felt really bad, they work so they can get to spend their money on themselves. After a while I started getting really stressed out thinking I wasn't going to accomplish anything worth while in my life because I had nothing to show for it. Sure I had lots of hobbies but to other I was just a jobless leech. Working sucks but you don't have to work your entire life. Their is a balance, if you want to still be a NEET then get a job with small hour so you can still enjoy your time being alive and have some income so you can do something like go on trips or whatever. Everyone is different but having a job gives me purpose in life, I work so I can enjoy my time off. Knowing it's Friday and the weekend is right around the corner is the best feeling I have every week, I can go out and get smashed with some buddies and forget all the shit I did that week.

>>53012396 In my case a job is selling my labor, being miserable in the process. the only purpose is money, end of story. Every other effect is bad It prevents me from being healthy, productive (in non monetary ways). it prevents me from having time to pursue my passions well. It prevents me from learning things i want Unfortunately i will never get paid to do something that makes me happy. If you feel better when employed, consider your privilege t. Programmer for 5 years, hated every second of it. Neet for 1 year, loved everything about it (except no money)

That's how my job makes me feel I want to write a book, give it out for free. Being employed sucks all the energy and life from me. I can can't imagine being so boring and having no actual goals that somehow being employed is an improvement on having 24/7 freedom

It ruins my time off, except providing money I dont like alcohol I dont even want to hang out with anyone. I savor all of my extremely limited free time in solitude. Catch up on sleep Being employed is just the ultimate mark of a failure for me. I waste 8hr a day (more because driving etc) doing boring/annoying shit just for some crap money that won't be enough to retire off for another decade. My youth is being stolen from me It feels like my life hasnt even started yet. It's like how you graduate high school or uni and say "my life is finally started!" Well being a wagie is like some annoying shit i am forced to do preventing me from starting my real life as a non-slave this ruins my free time entirely Any dollar i spend i think "remember the misery you endured to get this. Is it worth spending on ____ instead of saving for freedom?"

>>53009442 >Why haven't you swallowed the neet pill? Here's my plan: I'll finish about 11-12 months of work at this place I've currently been at for 5.5 months (so I'm halfway there). i'm on a one year contract at the job so I'll collect unemployment income after the contract expires. Unemployment income will pay 55% of my gross wages for 37 weeks. That means I'll get $572 gross every week, for 37 weeks. I already have passive income of $340 per month from investments, too. For 37 weeks, I'll go to the gym, reclaim my health (although it's not bad as it is now) and regain my peace of mind, then I'll find another 1 year contract job, rinse and repeat.

>>53009442 I was a neet from 2013 to 2017. I got tired of not being able to afford good food, build new computers, buy new vidya etc. The worst part though was the anxiety that I felt at the end of each month wondering if I had been cut off from my neet bux. I went back to school for electronics engineering technology at a nice trade school and my life is astronomically better now than it was before. Got a job working in the schools applied energy research lab that starts on July 2nd and I'm really looking forward to it.

Can you believe this fucking loser whose HEALTH WAS THREATENED by having to leave the house is talking shit about someone else having a "slave gene"? You know what type of guys don't like the workplace? Fucking omegas. Because they occupy the bottom rung of every status hierarchy, and so every second they spend in a place with other men terrifies them. That's why working "worsens their health" - the stress of being shit-scared and humiliated constantly taxes their poor little constitutions.

Funny frog picture but its pretty irresponsible of you to he impressioning the young people here with the idea that being a NEET is a good thing. Being a NEET was easy, but I was definitely at my lowest mental state for those 2 years. I hate getting up for work but once I get in the door I feel content that I dont have to worry about being too poor to afford nice things or worry about my parents kicking me out. Real men like a challenge thats why we like competitive videogames and being a NEET doesnt simulate any challenges for your brain Dont give the literal teenage summerfags the idea to be NEET because for some people they never recover the social skills needed to get back into the world
