Everyone gets mad at me because I don't threat the COVID + vaccines situation like they were the end of the world. I just don't give enough of a fuck about the virus to change my ways of living in a drastic way (the most I do is wear a mask and clean my hands when entering a store, but I don't wear anything on the street and haven't tried to get myself checked or vaccinated). Previously they used to get mad at me for not caring about politics or voting (I have zero faith on politicians, so I try to stay aside and guard my stuff in case some new legislation fucks with my interest) and being so open about my indifference towards the topic.
>>2255 I'm guessing they are your parents, so they are panicking because of you. Otherwise its fairly normal behavior to not bother with these things for old folks. Most young people with this behavior are secretive about it, not wanting to be labeled as such and put on a social persona of "agreeing with popular opinion". People opposite of this tend to be loud mouth and egotistic, again my personal bias.

I've been doing it great recently; however, something that has been bothering me is this: I'm an anon that lurks certain Ib (I won't tell which one) and this Ib used to be really shitty back in 2017, filled with shitposting, slow, avatarfags and drama, during the 2018-2020 I did my best to make it look cool and some guys followed me, the board starting winning proper traction around late 2019 but it really took off around early 2021, there's not much drama, not much shitposting and the avatarfags are a thing of the past. The thing is the new people coming to the place and this people doesn't understand a thing about the board's culture and history and just repost garbage from Twitter and Facebook and act like retards. I mean, I always though it's dumb to gatekeep and act aggresive towards people that comes from other places but the more I see this people act the more I understand why in places like /v/ trend to be really aggresive towards newfags and in places like smuglo they even have rules against newfags and crosspoters. I mean I'm not a mod or something, just an anon that really likes that place and put a lot of effort to make it decent, and honestly I'm glad I'm not one because I would have done something retarde by now.
I went outside without a hoodie today and was feeling really confident about myself and my face. Had to pickup my young sister from HS and for some fucking reason she acted like she didn't know me right in front of her friends. Any self-esteem I had built up to that moment just vanished and I felt like people were mocking me or my face.. I come home and my Laptop's battery just fucking dies, then my angered douche-bag of a younger brother beats me up over some petty shit and my mother only decides to chime in after I grab him by the head to stop him and acts like I started the fight when the kid clearly needs to see a shrink since he is always in aggro schizo mode. I have no job right now, that's why I'm back here living on this shithole since I can't afford rent or food on my own, I have to withstand her constantly reminding me that I'm a useless piece of shit, I might as well go and move with my grandmother or something.
>>2262 I can resonate with the feeling for some reason except my parents only did that when I wasn't trying to get into online classes because I was at risk of failing which I turned out to be correct on and now I can't pay for my classes. Despite this they don't hold it against me but they're disappointed that that I'm not gonna be the first offspring to graduate college. From what I can guess your family had expectations that they'd hope you fulfil but due to circumstances or lack of interest you couldn't meet them and they think less of you for it for being unable to meet them. And I expect they couldn't meet the same and rather project their own issues onto you. But that's just my guess.
>>2263 You absolutely nailed it, my mother had great expectations for me that I just didn't feel like meeting, I eventually grew weary and tired of the world. Each and every single experience with people makes me realize how shitty 90% of the population really is and I just kind of want none of it.

>>2259 >I'm guessing they are your parents Nah, they got vaccinated because their jobs required it, but they honestly don't care a lot about the pandemic or politics. I was talking about some friends and more distant relatives (specially on my father's side). They sometimes get into heated discussions over some politician or football team and then get mad at me at the same time when I don't answer their questions over who do I support. >>2261 Judging from the way you described that site I'm inclined to assume that it is a /jp/ spin-off, but I may be completely wrong. >>2263 >>2265 >Despite this they don't hold it against me but they're disappointed that that I'm not gonna be the first offspring to graduate college I'm the same in this regard. I dropped out of college twice, and while they still say that they will support me I can't stop feeling like shit for failing twice in a row while my younger siblings are doing fine.

That stung a bit more then I expected. Hope you manage somehow.Though I'm sure you've heard similar sentiments before I take.

Just like devout your entire existence to job-hunting so your parents won't as mad at you, anon. Listen to me, i'm a boomer who grew up in a completely different world. Just like, forfeit any hopes and dreams or amusement from your finite lifespan and make it your sole focus to join the rat race so you become another automaton that fuels this shitty kiked system!

I feel bad that the minimum wagie in coffee shops, stores, gyms, etc. that may barely be scraping by are probably going to get confrontations from customers because of covid rules, but I'm also sick and tired of the contradictory metronome of "Everythings OK, no mask and vax required" and "Too many cases/New varient, put on mask and vax."
>>2271 I guess working with the public desensitized me to that sort of behavior, because I'm really not surprised how quickly people went back to entitlement and endless bitching the moment fear began to die down. I'm fortunate enough to be in an area that's pretty lax regarding it. Work for people in more strict areas really must be hell, regardless of wherever their beliefs lie. >but I'm also sick and tired of the contradictory metronome If it's any consolation, everyone is tired of it all now.
>>2271 Most Americans live paycheck to paycheck. They have no intention to save, learn, or thrive. This is the modern equivalent to survival of the fittest. It's cold, but if they don't want to improve, they never will. Best to look after yourself and encourage those you care about to do better. You can't save everyone, you can only do your best and let people figure it out on their own.
I hate my job, my life, my family, and everything I do makes me feel like a child or a complete failure. More often every day I just want to get blindsided by a dump truck. I feel like a failed human being, like I was made wrong.
>>2272 That's true. I too feel people around me, and not just me, are slowly getting tired and "giving up". Even those who I consider somewhat normalfags are turning off the TV and phones to just move away from this shit. Not some big change but I hope they make some positive changes. Some who were "mask only" are now slowly less zealous about it, people took vax but only one shot as they got sick after.
>>2270 Jobs are becoming meaningless. Whether is salary or satisfaction, both are getting low and more people want to just not bother anymore. Here even I don't have a job. Funny how few years ago we would say an insult to youtubers and lets players "get a real job" and now they have a stable job and we don't

I am terrified from the stories I hear from american customers berating people over smallest shit or decide this particular person is whom I would try to display dominance on. I feel bad for the security guys who have to pull those people out, I can't imagine those who manage to stay inside and hassle.
>>2289 Im seeing a lot of people trying to do self employment, but actually little more than hustling for a few dollars and crypto. There was a time you had a mill/factory near your town, all the able bodied would work there and that was the stable economy in the region. Many people wanted to get away from that life and move to cities for better work. Now there are no factory jobs, only small ones owned by a family where about a dozen or so work. I kinda like this idea of working there. A non demanding job where atleast people will know me.

I hate how people use 'waifu' to refer to anime girls. It's a term that's been totally bastardized just like 'loli'. I wouldn't really care about it's bastardization so much if I didn't start seeing it on imageboards as well.
>>2316 Yet 'waifu' is somewhat still is a pretty weeb word to consider, opposed to 'uwu' and 'kawai'. Its right become into a generic term for any anime girl you like, as opposed to THE ONE you want to be with in real life.

>>2320 I don't know. It really just bothers me. You're only supposed to have one waifu, and one waifu only. It was a really special thing. >I dread the day when eastern animation in general falls so hard, like kpop, I remember back in the earlier 2000s when the kpop community in the west was rather lax compared to the j-pop/idol community. There were still crazies back then, but it was all still very civil. It's funny how things have turned. (Though the idol community is still pretty bad as it was all those years ago. I'm referring to only western and SEA fans mind you.) >>2329 Why are they mandating coof shots when those who already got them are already "protected"? I hate living in current year so much.
>>2331 Why? Well it's been a year and a half since it has been going and the clowns in charge at this point in time have acquired a taste of power that they are unlikely to let drop while they continue to have people stuck in mass hysteria as if the world was ending. For the people themselves who got the jab, it is likely the same logic I have seen expressed in a screencap where they're afraid of those who didn't get it because in the event that the jabs may cause more harm than help, the whole "We're in this together" nonsense falls apart when it's only them getting harmed as opposed to say, them and their peers. In shorter words, "My vaccine is only effective if you take it too" It feels like a cult with the way it's been handled. From unqestionable authority telling the followers to do as they say, the way followers show their devotion to the cult to the point where they see nothing wrong with making life harder for the non-believers in the same of safety or health (employer playing hall monitor to make sure workers get jabbed for example), repeating the propaganda ad nauseam, threatening non-believers if they don't conform, etc. > those who already got them are already "protected" Not the case anymore if couple of months have passed for the jabbed because their protection apparently wanes over time, even if they got two jabs. So now they want people taking boosters in the hope that they'll defeat the Delta Airline virus. Like I said, I believe it's all a stupid game of Simon Says and Chicken.
Im getting sick of all the incessant blackpills/doomposters/futile posts that are cropping up all over the boards and places. Even in mainstream places there are unnecessarily cropping up to many likes and replies like yep that's society, yep that's capitalism, yep that's X. All to rake in few replies and trying to be all "im adult" and "this is the real life" and "if you don't like it, get in line, this is how its always been". Like they can't even hide their own frustrations and demoralization and then lash onto others for why aren't you sad and demoralized like me.

I want my parents to give me some space and leave me the fuck alone. I have been living in constant fucking fear of them since I was little. Fuck off, seriously just fuck off. Stop trying to guilt trip me into going back to your house. I DON'T WANT TO, I DON'T WANT TO, I DON'T WANT TO. I don't feel good around you, you fucking faggots, and I have enough hearing that everything is my fault. I'm already a mental wreck, just LET ME FUCKING REST. THIS IS THE ONLY THING I WANT. I WANT TO REST. I WANT TO RELAX, I DON'T WANT TO GO BACK. I am being told that I look like a complete mental wreck by my friends, everyone I meet is telling me that my parents were acting like assholes towards me, yet I still feel guilty. I constantly feel guilty over not going there and not staying with them. But I would prefer to DIE rather than do this. Last time it got physical and I can't take it anymore. I wish that I could just disappear, and find myself somewhere far away, with no one to tell me what to do or yell at me constantly. I'm over 20 already, and I still live fearful of my own fucking parents. I feel absolutely pathetic and disgusted with myself. And at the same time I don't know if they aren't right in the end, I can never have certainity. I'm fearful of making decisions on my own, due to how overfucking protective they were. Families should be fucking outlawed, holy shit, I have no fucking empathy for any fucking retard bitching about the importancce of "muh family". I feel I would be better fucking adjusted if I was an orphan.

The security guard is a four time convincted felon which should have him barred from owning a firearm and is also a registered sex offender. https://archive.is/pfs8m The story intrigues me for many reasons. >both sides of the Covid circus seem to be radicalised, likely due to how it has been sensationalized by media for a year and a half >yes, it is another day in Chicago where some unlucky fellow got shot, but this looks like another example of why gun control doesn't work >security firm hired the guy despite being a felon >the shooter's lawyer argued that he 'has a big heart and is a kind-hearted man' >the shooter's lawyer also argued that he shot in self-defense because the customer was unruly and wants to put other lifes at risk because he won't wear the mask What is worse? A four time felon and registered sex offender who sexually assaulted girls or someone who won't follow the rules for something that is hard to test, hard to guarantee efficacy, and as far as some papers suggest isn't lethal even if you're a senior citizen? I am troubled by the way it has been moving forward. I was taught as a child that it was morally wrong to segregate people into groups and that they should put aside their differences because they all have the same problems of human existance and that discrimination makes one ignorant of the many colors and life of people. I was taught that people should be able to make their own choices in spite of knowing the risks they partake in and face the consequences of their action, whether it is drinking alchohol, smoking weed and cigarettes, drinking the largest size cup of soda, operating machinery that can go faster than the meat bag we call flesh, partaking in pharmas experiments, etc. Combine those with the power grabs, the cyncism, lack of trust/faith to no longer take risks, and the people being so afraid of each other, it all makes a dangerous powder keg.

Fucking teach them manners if they are shit, make them learn something good before they die in misery. And stop running away from problems and bad experiences to shape you into them, otherwise of course your children will do the same to you if you don't make effort. Grow up. This is the first thing you should do. Its hard as fuck to correct your parents thats why nobody bothers. Unless your parents are molesting/alcoholic/druggies they are not niggers so stop blaming them or yourself and work towards fixing your family.
While I have a lot of goals in my life, the biggest one I currently have right now is to write a story. I specifically crafted a plot idea for one that I thought would be really good as a graphic novel/comic and I was able to get a friend of mine into the idea of making it where he does the art and I write the story and help him envision the panels. Problem is, I have lots of good ideas for this story in my head but I can't seem to just sit down and write. It is so frustrating for me because I will think for like long periods of time about the ideas that I have for all points of the story but like I can't write. I have had this issue for a long time, and I think it is literally because of my fear of not being good enough. It is so frustrating since I love this idea so much and I know that my friend and I will have so much fun doing it (even if it gets no attention), but my fear of not being a good writer is stopping me. Maybe I need to challenge myself to not write a story, but just to put words down on paper for like 20 minutes a day and try to just get comfortable writing fiction. Whatever, I don't know if that smaller goal will change much.
>>2446 What are you writing about? Im guessing this is sfw because your friend has agreed to it. While its a good habit to write atleast 1 page a day for a budding writer, it is for increasing your writing skill and getting things done in draft to actual, like for writing multiple things consistently. It won't improve your prose, just get that barrier away. A better thing to have a clearer mind is to focus writing on something else entirely, a topic which you have no idea about. Write anything about it, see what you like or not. Then revisit hat topic again and see how much you've improved.
I wish I had the bravery required to commit suicide.
>>2446 Here's a copypasta from /s/: >My advice to all aspiring writefags as BO and a recovering writelet myself is this: Read lots of books/scripts by good authors/screenwriters, and PRACTICE. >Write something no matter how bad it is, get it critiqued by somebody, and then keep writing. >Even people with no writing experience can provide valuable insight. My personal advice is this: Think of one of your story ideas, and write random unrelated dogshit about it on the page. Open the flood gates and don't restrain it no matter how shitty you consider it. The mere act of putting your ideas on the page helps you better shape them. Anything even remotely good you can salvage and expand on until you have a basic plotline or story beat.

I don't like the trend of thin and laptops that are basically macbook clones. Tiny footprint, metal body that actually makes it heavier, 16/9 aspect ratio, non removable battery non removable anything, and high cost of repairing. All to have compromises that a mid tier laptop don't have at half the price. But if you want specs or reliability, better spend more than thousand dollars for this. I just want a cheap laptop with good screen, good keyboard and good trackpad, welp that's all premium stuff you gotta spell $1200 for that.
>>2565 You probably don't actually want to kill yourself anon. You have another need that is merely projected onto the need of suicide. Think of what the thought of suicide actually means to you, what do you want to get from it and take steps towards the real reason behind that. For example, and this is just an example, if you're thinking "If I kill myself I won't have to deal with this shit anymore" then think about what is the "shit you don't want to deal with" and if possible make steps towards minimising it or removing it completely in your life. Even a small success in that field willl make you feel better. I have been venting about my parents in this thread, and was having suciidal thoughts because of them, but I took steps towards changing the situation. I moved out and I set some boundaries, taking time to rest, and I feel better already as well as being more motivated to do other shit. Once again, think what you think suicide would give you, because you definitely want to gain something from it and try to gain it without suicide or realise that maybe you don't actually need it.
>>2660 I remember reading about a laptop that was being designed to be easy to repair and upgrade, with almost every part being removable, including a strange adapter that would let you change various ports (f.e change USB ports to a SD reader or a USB-C). I think it still was being financed, but the idea looked good.
>>2663 Framework laptop. Its funded, and being sold. Its still $1000 tho. I like this design
>>2678 It's a neat concept but you're buying something that has terrible price to performance that's only real selling feature is the fact you can change out the IO on the fly, which is useless for most people. A used thinkpad will perform the same for a fraction of the price and probably have just as many parts available to repair and replace shit as you need to. Though it won't be as streamlined. I can't imagine spending $1000 USD on a computer without a dedicated GPU.
>>2679 The modules bit is a bit underutilized I think. It can be basically converted into a dongle that doesn't flop around, can be sold separately easily since its just a type c connector. The thinkpad crowd can be allured in one way that its the publicly acceptable modern thin and light version of thinkpad, or closest to it. I don't think they are aiming at the thinkpad crowd. GPU version with AMD ryzen would be beast option. Just an APU option. That would easily be a 1200 dollar purchase.
>>2678 >Its still $1000 tho That's what every "premium" laptop and ultrabook cost nowadays, and unlike them this one can be opened and repaired or upgraded by the user.

>>2690 See the specwise this can be done in $550, but the extra they charge is for metal body which I don't want, better screen which should be that more expensive, better trackpad which again shouldn't be that expensive. $1000 is straight markup because THEY CAN. They aren't actually that premium over basic stuff only in look and feel, maybe durability but that's where repairability comes in

>>2711 Imageboards can have a community, hell any place can. In forums and all you have profiles that you can easily identify with people you are talking with. That gives you an idea that you are talking to a single person when replying to their comment. You can gauge what that person is thinking and what you should say next. Then another person and another and thus you have a conversation, or a feel of a conversation. This conversations happen everyday and soon you have a community. In forums, you have conversation based on topics, within these topics you can form community of regular posters. But when new topic rises you have to do that same building again. Discord is not divided based on topics, instead the focus is on people, or profiles would be more accurate. Conversation happens based on whatever the profiles are talking about and topics move about based on the profiles. In forums the thing that joins them together is the thread topic, while on discord its join together by its profiles participating. Voice channels can thus make it into an instant where topics are discussed on for few seconds by everyone then move onto next thing. Imageboards, while having none of the above, can have something similar. You and I are talking about a feel of community, a third can join in with a post or reply, have a conversation. Then topics may shift about but still can retain a sense of who is talking to me and who am I talking to, not just based on individuals but ideas, though its harder. And maintaining this kind of conversation over a period of days is even harder. The low number of people here doesn't help either.
>>2711 Seems that you are a young songbird who prefers a gilded cage. Whereas I revel in the open bazaar. This "unnatural" feeling you describe may be true if you were familiar with Discord before imageboards. Also ,if you're so inclined, you could make a Vocaroo thread for people like you.
>>2705 I agree. Fuck identity politics, of any kind. Be it right-wing or left-wing.
>>2731 Discord actually recently introduced some weird "thread" functionality apparently. Not sure how it works though. >>2711 >>2732 I can understand where anon is coming from with the appeal of discord-like interactions. But personally I would take it a step further and say that any long-term interactions with another human that isn't in your country or state are almost as pointless as random conversations with anonymous posters. Conversation for the sake of conversation is ultimately the same regardless of if you have a maintained identity for the participants. Unfortunately there isn't a decent privacy oriented way to make friends online but also locally.

>>2736 >>2732 >>2707 Lets argue which system is better and make do with what we have in the best way possible. I don't have strong feelings on any of these as in the end its the people you're communicating with that matters and not the means. And we have really shortage of that. Fortunate now that most people are of all the crap, fun is a rare commondity, so lets have fun.
