What are some good and productive things you guys do in your spare time? I feel like when I’m not at the gym or with friends i’m just screwing around the internet
>>50811105I dont do shit im super lazy, luckily my family owns a business so i do light managerial stuff for them as a side hustle keeps me busy helps me feel like im working towards something since im not creative enough to create something myself
>>50811105and women are doing what exactly? drinking cheap wine by the bottle? binging on netflix and eating junkfood? fucking as many men as possible in a vain search for "the right one"?
I keep saying to myself I'll start going to a shooting range and join a bible study group, but I never get around to actually doing it
>>50811105I bought a kindle and im reading booksIts fun
>>50811129or fucking their dogs.
Considering that most girls have hobbies like "netflix and food" its pretty fitting that they end up with a moderately strong autistic /fit/izen who has the same hobbies+gym
>>50811105I'm trying to learn arithmetic on the side. It's going slow but no pain no gainz. Using the /sci/ wiki book list. good stuff.
>>50811105well right now i'm concentrating very hard on just not killing myself
ive been going through every course at khan academy, not sure how much im retaining but even a little bit is better than nothing
>>50811197Minmax in something you actually like / have an aptitude for
Currently finishing my degree. Ive been looking at bonsai and boxing when i have more time.
>>50811105Have a creative outlet like writing or drawing or playing an instrument.
Guys im learning electric guitar. Currently at intermediate level. I still need more practice before i can actually perform and solo but i also want to start drawing again (used to be my main hobby as a kid before adulthood ) . The problem is im always tired, sleepy, unmotivated and uninspired because of work and life. I dont have the passion i used to lads.. now i just use my phone or watch youtube/netflix when i get home.
>>50811129This is why you run away from anyone without a real hobby or interest. Netflix binges and basic anime doesn’t count, I’d say an actual interest in film does. If someone doesn’t have at least a dream career they probably suck.
identify andf execute business opportunities with fervor.of course, none of you will actually do this.
>>50811129dude have you ever talked to a woman before? i think i have met about as many girls without ambitions as i have guys. life isn't all about trying to shit on the opposite sex
>>50811105Just don't be a NEET and persue higher education/get a job. I'm going to be a flight attendant soon and hopefully I'll have money to pay for college soon
>>50811585>If someone doesn’t have at least a dream career they probably suck.Be careful though, "career-driven" women are usually some of the most vapid of all.
>>50811660go back to plebbit
>>50811172Only if they're white
>>50811129That's pretty cringe bro
I tend my garden and fruit trees, read, take courses on udemy, and raise chickens and goats.
>>50811707I can't imagine a more horrible job but Godspeed, anon.
>>50811105Play go. I constantly am playing quick correspondence games. Whip out the phone and play a few moves while I take a break or over lunch or whatever. It's made me so much more analytical. I adore it entirely like nothing I ever have in my life. When I play a serious game I am literally in meditation. From its history to legends to myths to aesthetics there is nothing to dislike, unless you're a zoomer that needs more colors and guns in their entertainment.Jesus christ, anon, play go.
>>50811105LiftingRunningIce hockeyFantasy and sci-fi writingVideo game developmentNeed to do more of it all though. And I don’t have a career yet but I just graduated ill figure my shit out
Take care of my garden and record crappy black metal demos. I couldn't be happier.
>>50811105> Devoting yourself to something just so you can have "I like to watch netflix, eat pizza, and T R A V E L"Pick up a hobby because your enjoy it, not for women. They're probably not much more interesting themselves, and will try to stop you if you find actual enjoyment in it because that's how women are.
>>50811769being a janny on 4chan
What about collecting old things to preserve history
Developping a plan to eradicate the human species
>>50811848BASED.Cherish these days of peace while you can, human bois.The age of man is over.The age of the Gorilla has begun,
>>50811248Fuck bonsai. Utterly beautiful art, but so incredibly unrewarding for how slow things progress. Additionally, most of the time you must do nothing. You need a hobby that you can do at least some creative part of at the drop of a hat. Trust me brother, don't do it. Too idle.
>>50811848Last time I tried didn't went too well. What you got so far?
>>50811105AnkiLearn shit nigga
>>50811548Hell yeah. Good for you, anon.
>>50811933Doing a bit of geography with Anki, I suddenly was way more desirable for pub trivia lol
its really incredible how i'm basically been a shut in loser my entire life and didn't spend all this time alone cultivating some hobbies. my only hobbies i have at 27 are pathetic shit like watching sports, watching TV and pissing around on the internet except for the sports officiating i do on weekens sometimes. dont even know where to start finding actual hobbies because literally nothing in life bring me any sort of pleasure, miserable every waking moment.
I play guitar and read manga.also getting into dance dance revolution (standard mode baby!) as of late
>>50812013that's the spirit! you'll be doing 9-footers on Heavy in no time
>>50812043ive seen ur setup posted !!! badass love it, thats stepmania right? im just playing at the arcade with some friends and practicing shitty american songs at home on the plastic pad
>>50811906I got inspired by the gardens at ginkakuji. Aesthetic as fuck
>>50811129t. has never spoken to a female before
>>50812089...and the attraction never ends.
>>50811775a board game is no better than a video game
>>50812162How naive you must be! Go sharpens the mind diamonds. Maybe a handful of vidya are like that, but none as simple or elegant.
>>50812089This is almost hard to believe this exists.
>>50812102Lmao literal fedora, I think you're looking for r*ddit
>>50811105I like to hike.
>>50811105I speak Japanese fluently but don't actively study for it anymore. Since becoming a wageslave I drink copious amounts of alcohol while meeting friends, try going to the gym 3 times a week (usually pans out at 2 cuz work dinners) and learn the piano if I have a spare minute after chores.
>>50812181I actually have an old board and pieces
>>50812102Sounds like you havent bro
>>50811105I shoot guns, ride horses, and shoot guns while riding horses. Horsey sports are an excellent way to meet redpilled women. The "crazy horse girl" thing is just a meme.
>>50811172Why does this happen so often
>>50811726Depends on the career tbqh I like almost all aspiring doctors and most aspiring lawyers. Business I’m wary of.
>>50812229How old? Antique old?
>>50812191Kinkakuji is way more famous due to the gold leaf building but the garden at ginkakuji shits on it
>>50812066it is, my roommate and I got a metal pad and put a bunch of songs on a computer. naked ddr any time
>>50811129Lots of women have hobbies anon, leave your house and you might meet them. Do you really think you are better binge watching Naruto, than she is binge watching Love Island?
>>50811105I write novels. I want to submit them some day. If even one person's life is improved by my work, I'd be happy.
>>50811105Lifting (obviously)BoxingWriting Learning Korean
>>50812623Yeah share one, recently i had some good idea that could be perfect for novels so i'm actualy looking the motivation to start the writing.(in a Maupassant style if you wonder)
tfw selling my videogame collection this weekend because I'm too much of a faggot to control myself and play too often
>>50812754That's a good decision anon, video game addiction is a cancer
>>50812280Fuck you crazy horse girls are a thing
>>50811146lol good, the world needs less people like you

>>50811129oh god hes gonna lose subscribers, that was pure cringe bro!
Learning a language,if you want to learn a language and you're currently not doing it you're a fag>Pirate language Courses such as Pimsleurs>Join free Discord servers in your target language>Use free resources such as Duolingo, Ankidroid, etc.I walk everyday for an half an hour and use my mp3 language courses, I look like a faggot muttering to myself in French but at least I'm doing it.Also train your Pc-Muscle, get an e-reader pirate books and manga. Learn game, don't be a fag or make excuses talking to girls isn't such a big deal once you get past Approach anxiety, don't buy any programs though. I recommend The natural lifestyle - Tnl YouTube channel.
>>50813031Also meditate, helps with game as well.
>>50813031My feel when i'm french and I do't have to learn it. Hahaha i'm so fucking better than you ! You look like so much like a fag when yiu walk with your stupid mp3 lmaaoooooWhat is the frog voice telling you ? Met toi la grosse baguette au fromage bien profond dans ton cul pd ?
>>50812696>>50812726Lemme just clear up one of my rough drafts to make sure there's nothing REALLY weird in it. It's unfinished and largely unedited and filled with stupid anime shit. But maybe you'll have fun reading it.
>>50811645I'll bite...Thats probably because you are saying something shitty and vague? Be more specific, anon-san.
Clean the house.
>>50813031how does it feel that most french people are unironically like this faggot>>50813083
>tfw want to learn spanish and visit Colombia and Mexico next winterHow good can I get in 7 months if I'm being serious about it (ie: an hour or more every single day)
>>50813239>like this faggotPost body
Reading is always a good idea and starting some courses will keep you occupied, learn a new language, there's really a lot of shit you could do.
>>50813239I'm expecting nothing less>>50813239
>>50811129>hop on tinder>more than 50% of profiles make reference to the office
>>50813332Best thing to do is lurking for hours the next video that will make you jerking off o pornhub
>>50813347>tinder that's your problem lad
>>50813347>travel>dog>food>netflix>booze>weed>sex>mundane job>dating criteria>"give me free shit" Literally every profile, which would be fine if so many didn't pretend like any of that makes them interesting or unique
>>50813347Funny thing is that all girls on tinder say "you know, i'm not like other girls here" that's so fucking unbellievable how women are so fucking retards and all the same on how they want to be special but are not. Women really are cognitive incoherence i wish i was gay
>>50813394>>50813408I mean I know there's only so much a 500 character bio can convey, and it's a vapid app used for fucking. But holy shit why even fucking bother writing anything if it is all the goddamn same
>>50811548Biggest advice I can give you is make sure your living space is clean and tidy, and look for opportunities to get out of the house. I guarantee you'll get an hour or two of drawing done if you just get your arse down to the library with nothing but a pencil and paper instead of trying to do it in your room. Also for guitar specially, I recommend aiming high from the start rather than learning a tonne of basic crap. I went through a metal phase and within a year went from unable to play guitar to being able to play the most complex old megadeth songs pure by learning the riffs slowly then gradually speeding it up. Learn tough songs from the start, but you have to love them
I'm reading, writing a novel (already some 90k words in), lifting and doing kickboxing. They're all legit hobbies but most normals just don't want to do anything with me and most friends abandoned me.Maybe min-maxing in a field or two wasn't such a good idea at the expense of social life. But hey, I can kick someone's head clean off while reciting the Illiad.
>>50811105Unironically go to /pol/ they have /sig/ self improvement general which has a lot of good shit.
>>50813408Funnily enough I went on tinder and POF to find someone to practice russian with since I remember seeing a few people who said they could speak it along with backpackers from that area etc.Went in with low expectations but holly fuck, had people asking me what "Russian" is and other cunts arguing with me that Russia is completely in Asia and not at all in Europe geographically.Tinder is literally what is left after you scrape the barrel. Both accounts have since been deleted.
>>50811105shit I have to feed cattle, horses, chickens and our sweet puppies while also helping my elderly family members I wish I had more time to just screw around.
>>50813411Like I said it wouldn't be so bad if they weren't so oblivious to how generic they are. Especially when they whine about guys having low effort bios.
>>50813442I feel your pain dude. What gets me is not that others aren't experts at shit, but that they have no drive to ever learn or create something. If I made a knew friend and he was like "I've done kickboxing for years" I want him to teach me everything. Most a very comfortably set in their ways.
Does /tg/ count as productive? Also trying to learn electric guitar but I'm pure baby beginner shit. And neither of these hobbies are going to help me meet people.
>>50811105i too play guitar
>>50813497Yeah I have the same dilemma with 40k. Really want to get back into it but I know that 90% of the community is autistic and its hard to justify the money.I feel like I'm making an excuse to not just learn how to paint oil on canvas like a real man, but I just love the lore, the models and creating /mydudes/
>>50813517music is a great time killer. I play guitar, bass, synth and bullshit around freestyle rapping. that's a great way to at least feel like your self improving and using your time well even if no one wants to hear you.
>>508111822 plus 2 is 4 minus1 is 3 quick maths
>>5081354190? More like 100%Imagine you are just doing what people are paid to make what you will make
>>50813281Why are you bothering to learn when your head will be cut off in 7 minutes?
>>50813541Well for me, I've moved more into the historical and "alternate" gaming scene. The people there are all friendly 50-something boomers with jobs, families, accomplishments. There's no GW fuckery going on - much cheaper models. And people seem to care more about the craftsmanship/story/aesthetic of it than playing it as a competitive game, which I prefer. When I play 40k it's always against a grey horde of minmaxed goons. When I play Hail Caesar or ASOBAH the other army is full painted with names and lore.
>>50813579I've been to Mexico a few times already.It felt safer than many american cities I visited
>>50813599I'm sure you didn't go to a city with a sizable percentage of african americans, did you?
>>50813442What's your novel about, brah? I've been writing a play for about a year now and write lots of poetry in my spare time, so I'm always interested in what others are writing
>>50813616I visited only Philly, NYC and Atlanta
>>50811172There is a shocking amount of women that do or admit to liking to idea of it.
Studying(both journaling and noretaking) philosophers or some skills that I find might help me in life.It might surprise you at least but when I started doing a 4chan I always came for insight on guns, literature and fitness. 4chinz was a mark anons put on to give their inner thoughts.This was 2010 tho.
>>50811548drawing is a waste of time. just play guitar. also don't fap. it makes you tired.
>>50813281Very good. I learned French very quickly and Spanish is easier than French. Focus predominately on oral and aural ability. Use written purely as a reference but you need to focus and being able to understand spoken Spanish, and pronunciation. Vocab and grammar will come with time. Also getting a native speaker to chat to is really helpful>>50813582I have considered alternate games but never looked into it deeply. What gets me is how cheap third party companies are for far more detailed versions of games workshop units. For example this figure is $20 cheaper than the GW keeper of secrets, yet far nicer.
>>50812754I just smashed everything up.it's worthless junk anyway.
>>50813662> I always came for insight on guns, literature and fitnessStrangely /pol/ is the best place for that with their self improvement generals. Also covers diet and philosophy.
>>50812754>wipeoutPatrician taste dude. I would play that while listening to documentary podcasts like hardcore history. >>50812784Seeing videos of speedruns and what those people are like really is an eye opener

what's a good resource for learning guitar
>>50813622Eh, it's a deeply philosophical work of fiction in which the main character is a human chameleon capable of changing every aspect and feature of it's body. I'm not going to lie, all the years of training, dieting, bodybuilding, all this study of muscles and nutrition and whatnot has greatly influenced some aspects of this novel, although the main theme of focus is not change (ironically).It's mostly an experimental work, I've been writing for years, mostly short novels and stories for magazines and literary circles in my city, but this one is the crowning piece.
i sit around thinking about going and doing something interesting
>>50812696>>50812726>>50813115Here it is. It's typical light novel stuff about an ex-assassin who turned against her family, and now she's in witness protection as a high school student in a Shadowrun-like setting. I wrote it five years ago. It's the first couple arcs of a series. Might post more if people want it.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xzhJyuOLyQVd97H3EI485B_W_soz-PcgQLuzuRUer8w/edit?usp=sharing
>>50813910>writing tranny propaganda
>>50814023Post this in lit and get your work critiquedIt seems interesting, but I'm too much of a brainlet to give you actual feedback
>>50814054>it's actually bodybuilding and physical fitness propagandaIt's a different mindset, kid.
>>50811548Schedule your days.
>>50813281Extremely good. But you should be hanging out with Spanish speakers. On paper learning is almost useless if you don’t get actual speaking and hearing practice.
Grow weed, that’s what I do between work, gym, and wife. It’s fun, and very profitable if you aren’t an idiot. (Disclaimer: I do not smoke never have, just grow for money)
cancerous thread full of passive entertainment cosumers. vidya is cancer, netflix is cancer, memes are cancer. get out and connect with reality. you don't have anything going for you, no wonder your life is shit.
>>50813910Do you have any recommendation for writing short novels? I have a few ideas that I want to write about but I'm stuck as to how to start.
>>50811105>What are some good and productive things you guys do in your spare time?
>>50814716if you practiced what you preached you'd realize that media consumption is normie reality and always has been.
>>50811775How does one meditate while doing things?
>>50811172Based and dogpilled
>>50813281Use duolingo to get the basics down, do it a few hours a day. Then get into Spanish groupchats or something. After 2 months of this I got a Chilean girlfriend who couldn't speak English so I had to force myself to learn it, while texting use google translate but pinky for single words and learn grammar for hours a day. When you learn to conjugate verbs in all tenses shich is the hardest part, and when you got the basics down learning new words by the day is easy.I think I could speak it fluently after about 6 months of this. That said I speak 5 languages and have a knack for learning languages.
I've actually just started gardening. Gonna get these guys fuckin HUGE
Everyone on /fit/ (or 4chan) should pick up an instrument. More specifically an instrument you can play solo pieces on like the piano or the classical guitar since most of you autists won't play in a band. Picking up an instrument was the best decision I've ever made
>>50811105>gym>studying>football practice>playing piano>workIs basically all I aim to do. Anything else are distractions (social media, video games), chores (food, hygiene, laundry) or social stuff (meeting friends etc.).Theres this trend in the "self improvement" community that you have to this and that and learn this and study that and read this... fuck that bs man. You don't have to meditate, "food prep", read 5 books a month or be this jack of all trades type (which doesn't exist). Rather focus on like 2 or 3 things that really get you somewhere and work hard on them. Like borderline obsessed hard. Great men aren't those jack of all trade types, they knowledge might be narrow but very, very deep. Become result orientated and only do what moves you towards goals. Outsource whatever you can (food, laundry, etc.) and become and expert and one or two things. You can spread out later. Trying to pick up everything, studying for school, going to the gym, reading books about history, learning how to cook, learning how to fix your bike, learning how to meditate, learning how to play an instrument, doing some gay ass "side hussle" etc. is how you end up being 27 years old and your biggest character trait being you "know alot" of stupid trivia and reddit tier facts that make your 6/10 date chuckle.
>>50814716At this point id love to be interested in video games again.I used to enjoy being at home doing my own thing, wasting time, who cares if youre happy.Now i cant enjoy it, its boring, all i do is browse 4chan, watch youtube shit, and waste time. I'm theoretically productive, i regularly go to the gym, i do my university work, i work a part time job, and i see friends, but between all that, i feel empty and have nothing to do. It's like im constantly fighting to keep the creeping depression at bay. When i have a few empty days it always comes back.

It's like im constantly fighting to keep the creeping depression at bay. When i have a few empty days it always comes back.I think you need to do something that's actually goal oriented and fulfilling. Are you doing university because you have to or because it leads to a place your really hungry for? You gotta ask yourself who you want to be and work towards that goal/dream. Also Jordan Peterson once said that life isn't about being happy and that was eye opening to me. I realized you're not suppoesed to be happy sunshine all the time, it just comes once in a while and otherwise you should just continue your journey and search for meaning rather than happiness.
>>50816101>I think you need to do something that's actually goal oriented and fulfilling.I am but its just kind of a waiting game.>Are you doing university because you have to or because it leads to a place your really hungry for? I'm actually a mature student, I'm half way through my bachelors at age 26. It was my choice to do this after a long period working dead end jobs. After graduating i plan to piss off to China to teach for a while, save money and fuck bitches. Live the easy adventourous life. Travel is the only time i truly feel free and happy.I know life isnt meant to be happy all the time, but it isnt meant to be boredom, worry and low mood either.
>>50811548Practice every dayGet your amp next to your bed and try to learn a song every other day to break the plateau and get inspired Listen to awesome guitar music, solo over it Try to get some feel in there, don’t just mindlessly shred or go the scales up and downUse the skills you acquired from learning some songs to create own riffsGet yourself a looper and play your own stuff Solo over it Best advice: find some mates to jam with, it’s literally the most rewarding feel to just let go and groove Source: Drummer but also self taught guitarist

>>50811988I was the same way, my hobbies were basically smoking weed and drinking age 15-26. I didn't even bother to try in stupid shit like video games. Just start doing literally anything that interests you and give it at least a week before you give up. Watch a bunch of videos of people who are really good at whatever thing you try for insipration. Something will eventually stick.
>>50811768Are those yours, anon? They're cute.
>>50811105get a job
>>50811105I just started lifiting a few months ago. Quit gaming (might go back eventually), quit spending all my free time watching steamers, and lets plays.I shoot, make mead, and read. I need something else, but I haven't decided yet. I used to draw, I even went to design school for a while, but I haven't drawn in years...
>>50813031Where can i pirate a language program?
>>50811262Not the kindle dude, but I read daily, but I read non-fic. Currently making my way through a 1st year cell biology book. One hour at a time every evening before bed. It helps me sleep better (no screen time before bed), but more importantly I am learning new things. I’m 37 btw. I did go to university, but for engineering. I’m hoping to read through as much of a life sciences degree as I can. I want to understand medicine and nutrition better.
>>50816350Profound post, really like the use of punctuation
I draw so and exercise so that’s better than just watching reddit and memey on repeat
>>50811105I do some volunteer work on a small vegetable farm. It gets me lots of clean veggies for barely any work, and being out in the sun feels great. It's also a nice way of getting some social interaction.
>>50816726That's awesome Anon, where is it? And how did you get into this?
>practice boxing>lift >hang with gf>read>sports>hang with buddies>ride motorcycles>work on whatever hobby is interesting to me at the time
I play piano and drums, and try to write music for me and my mates to jam and record. During summer I surf and in winter I ski, I also try to make videos of both. I also skate but I'm currently coming back from a couple of injuries. Feels good to be busy
>>50813083Good now go learn a new one putain
>>50813394>dating an heiress rich girl who pays for a lot of my shit >feels good manI pay for her as well when we go out but it feels fucking good to have a gf who carries her weight with $ and doesn't have me pay for everything when we both know she makes a lot more than me
>>50816753I live in a old monastery rebuild into a bunch of apartments. One of the requirements of living here is doing something to give back to the community. The garden is located on the monastery grounds. 90% of the vegetables get distributed to the poorest people in the city, the rest are for the volunteers.Being a average anon, i barely ever go outside or talk to people so i saw this as a great opportunity.I really recommend it if you can find something similar. It's a good way to get some physical activity too.
>>50815550Go becomes the focus object. It doesn't happen right away, but it does. It doesn't work for me playing internet go, but in physical space. The tactility of placing a stone, the game on the board gradually becomes something of a mandala, the relaxed nature of expressing one's self with each move -- it just starts adding up. Then one day when you're strong enough, perhaps 5 kyu, while playing with a friend or clubmate, it will just happen: one or two or three hours will pass incomplete silence as the both of you complete a game. There's nothing else like it!
>>50811105tend to my insect collection
>>50811172What's wrong with that as a hobby?

>>50811105Try hiking for your cario. Plan a few hikes in interesting placesBuy an instrument, learn to play it. you can get a ukulele for like 20-50 bucks.Grow a plant. They sell kits in home desperate for like 20 bucks.Read a book. You most likely have a public library some where near you.Shooting takes a little bit to get into but can be really fun and take up lots of time.Cooking is easy to get into since you most likely already have to do that so you don't die.Anon, literally just pick something you like, do a bit of research and start doing it. You're already spending time dicking around on the internet, why not make it productive time? If you cant think of something, like 80% of the boards listed on the homepage of this website under "interests" or "creative" can be turned into a good hobby as long as you dont spend your whole day lurking and browsing.
>>50817266>>50817312I'm actually really interested in your collection. When i was in high school, i worked in a museum and had to pin a shitload of insects. I kinda fell out of it, but i still have an appreciation for it
>>50813031When I moved to an english speking country with 0 english in my vocabulary I would spend all day Writing words down that I didnt know even if I had to write all over my arms if I didnt have paper, repeating words you've found out and using them in sentences is a great way to speed up the process of learning a language, hope you get to a level of french where you can just start talking to people and refine it as you go on :D
>>50813438This.Second paragraph's advice, but purposely leave your phone at home.

>>50812816Not that poster but kys you shit skin libtard
>>50813347"Just a Pam looking for her Jim lol XD"Its every dating app I've been on, not just Tinder. One of the questions I actually ask girls when I meet up with them is what guys profiles are like, and they tell me its the same shit. "Just a Jim looking for his Pam" and all that other cringey shit.I don't get it. It was an ok show. Not counting the awful seasons like 7/10 at best, and its been like 10 years. Why the fuck are normies so obsessed with it?
>>50811146idk why you see the range as a chore. its fun as fuck. do you have your own gun? if not rent a glawk or CZ at the range and shoot a couple rounds off, you will want to go back as soon as you leave. as for bible study, not for me personally but I know people who do that as like a therapy session, and its pretty comfy from what I hear. hope you get around to it anon
>>50816027True. No one cares about your keto diet cooking skills and knowledge about roman history, a guy who worked his butt off for 8 years and became top 10% in his field will absolutely MOG the fuck out of you in every way

Apply for higher paying jobs, look into schooling prospects, do something with my life in general. Maybe try that out faggot
>>50811262Yeah but a better kind of consumption than playing vidya or watching shitflix

>>50813347>haha I love The Office!!! It's SO funny! Look at how individual and quirky I am
>>50811105Now men have to be women's entertainment as well as their wallet, "daddy," etc.
Read books, pursue a creative outlet like writing or music, cook more/better. Of course that's mostly things I think would be good uses of time. I also screw around on the internet a lot
>>50811105I’m doing yoga and gymnastics additionally to lifting and Mtb I’m also reading a lot and going to local events supporting local businesses As side hobbies I just recently took up sim racing and I usually ride motorcycles/drive with people that like bikes and driving I have no friends that I see often or that we get together to do cool stuff...
embrace catholic lit lifestyle>end up mentally ill and having multiple breakdowns involving the police. Suicidal, depressed and angry. Existential crisis. Develop OCD. Ruminate constantly. Never tell a lie or masturbate.embrace hedonism>numb from all the distractions (4chan, TV, porn and masturbation) but hopeful. Except when I retreat back into the moral way of thinking and wondering if this or that action is morally right.Anyone else like this? I'm seeing a therapist. I am still a virgin but i see it making me unhappy in the long run by staying so for some obscure, transcendant purpose. I have gone back to torrenting and lying. Is this a normal experience not worthy writing about?Which way will most likely bring me to my destination of becoming a writer and publishing a novel?
>>50812836Prove that 5 divides 8^n - 3^n for any natural n.
>>50811262There's a difference between mindless consumption and active consumption. Reading something that is thought provoking is much better than doing some effortless chore
>>50818688Get a board from Yellow Mountain Imports that has a 9x9 and 13x13 on the reverse. You'll eventually want a 19x19 but not really worth it unless you have somebody to play with, right? Otherwise use OGS or KGS (prefer the former, though) for playing games online.
>>50811105Learning to code using app academy online and the odin project. Sometimes great, sometimes garbage
I need helpA girl I'm dating wants to see me and I have no idea what we should do other than bar then fuck, we already did that and I want to do something.Like what do couples do together?
>>50820219Any nice trails around you anon? Get some fresh air, smell the flowers, then take her home and fuck her
>>50813031What the heck is pirate language?
>>50820542I already went to the park on our first date and I have no money plus no car. All I have is an apartment. Couples clearly do something together that's not just sex right?
>>50811105Idk if it’s productive but I really like playing mtg, especially edh. I like looking at cards and talking about cards and decks and theory crafting for decks and such and actually playing games vs others. It’s a warped form of social interaction and it’s something with a bit of resale value. It probably won’t help me get girls but like getting better at it
>attend university>lift weights>go for runs>play piano>cook>read>code apps>watch tvshows/movies>party with friends on the weekendsStill feels like i am doing nothing, probably because i do most of my activities alone
>>50813347The office is legit good, also an easy gateway to the normie world so you dont feel too out of touch
>>50812623holy shit are you me.
>>50811105I watch anime and eat
>>50811548I should start playing mine again

>>50811848You're a Jew?
>>50816027>>50818156Here's my two cents in this blog post chain. Being a master in one field but a complete looser in others will make you economically powerful (If you chose something economically relevant to master) but an overall unattractive humans, humans are generalist problem solvers. If you're a top engineer at google but can't even hold a normal conversation, you're not going to be much popular, outside of the superficial appeal of your money and status. However, once you get good at the meta game you get good at all the games, there is nothing more attractive than a man that is great in everything AND a master in something (top 10%). The pursuit of mastery is good, but only as a mean to get your head out of the water first, and be a member that society will tolerate. It should not come at the expend of literally anything else, unless you want to be grand master (top <1%)
>>50822026It has its moments, but it's inexplicably some huge cultural landmark among people who have never worked in an office in their lives. The showrunners shot themselves in the foot when they had to break away from the typical mundane office shit they used to lampoon, and it was a freefall after season 4 filled with weirdly forced emotional moments after
>>50812942this response was pure cringe
>>50811105Work on career if you're not a deadbeat like meOtherwise use free time to learn a language, learn an instrument, learn a skill (trades are good) and most importantly READAlso any side gigs because money is always good but I'm too lazy
>>50816112>>50816065I understand this feel
>>50814766Not him but read some short novels, find what you like and dislike about them! Most importantly just write. The only way to get better at writing is writing, so be prepared to write a lot of shit before you produce anything worthwhile.
>>50811105If I’m feeling productive I’ve got a couple project cars lying around, and I drive a high-t pre-Chrysler Jeep. Otherwise I don’t do a whole lot other than drink, lift and binge YouTube and the ol’ ‘Chan
I paint Warhammer
I commute 2 hours each way and do Duolingo on my lunch breaks.Free me from this hell.
>>50820019stop embracing lifestyles. There is no rulebook to life or happiness and anyone trying to tell you that they have "solved the mystery" is trying to sell you something or a brainless shill. Search inside yourself and make your own path, don't follow the path someone else cuts out for you.
>>50811129Women all enjoy doing pretty much the same stuff, its funny that they all hate each other deep down seeing as how they are practically the same things just some are hotter than others.
>>50812623I should start writing, seems fun
>>50811129thispic related are 2/3 of all women today.
>>50821951Nothing wrong with mostly solitude if you're keeping busy. what do you play on piano?

>>50823031Yes, but over the period of a few years and more of a focus on the weird shit that can be done with cybernetics. For example one of the side characters is a sleazy Asian PI with a camera built into his toe that he uses for intel gathering and panty shots.
I scored the best goal of my life today lads. Broke from right back as I saw a gap and kept looking for a pass but fuck all on so fucking slapped myself n backed myself and did half the team n megged keeper. Classic. Best goal ever. I want a gf
>Hit on cosplay hotties on IG>Random IG stories of w/e im doing at the time>Organize my toolbag>Plan projects for my house>Shitpost on the internetPretty comfy, I hit the gym 6 days a week so my schedule is essentially Sleep, Work, Exercise, Dick around, and repeat ad nauseum. I'm just so used to vidya, anime, shitposting that I enjoy the fact I can fit it into my schedule for 1 or 2 hours.
>>50813883best post itt
>>50816419I agree but I would say drums are just their own category. Someone who wails on the drums is automatically cool imo
I started learning to touch type. Built my computer in 2013 but never learn how to use my keyboard properly.

>>50822233How would you even begin to explain why this is funny to someone?So many layers of memetic activity
>>50817163Chess is better
>>50811105Guitar can be really fun and extremely rewarding, and learning enough to impress normies is quick and easy. (A few months if you are intelligent and take practice seriously.) Want to make it even easier and impress normies faster? Start on a classical/nylon string guitar. Learn common chords, strumming, and finger picking patterns asap. A lot of impressive sounding stuff(again, to normies) is easier than you'd expect. Women are usually really easily impressed by even amateur guitar.
>>50820219I've gone bowling or to play pool, its a fuj thing to do and something you dont do often, perhaps try that
>>50811105What other hobbies are there? I don't want to do wood carving or some stupid shit. I just don't like to do things that aren't escapism.
>>50813408>i wish i was gayFap to increasingly degenerate fetish shit as often as possible until trannies turn you on. Continue until your standards for trannies lower and eventually progress to including twinks. Homosexual arousal is learned behavior and being "gay" is simply a shallow identity for people who chose to perform homosexual acts. Anyone can become gay if they really want to just like faggots can stop being gay if they want to. It's a choice. No one is "born gay".
>>50813447/sig/ is mainly a /fit/ thing and the version on this board tends to be better
>>50824469>I just don't like to do things that aren't escapismI feel you, but that's the point. You want to escape because you don't feel good about your life. But you'll have to force yourself to suffer through some self improvement before you'll feel better about your life. It gets worse before it gets better. But if you don't take the leap, it only ever gets worse. You can buy time with increasingly degenerate forms of escapism and instant gratification, but if you're remotely intelligent, eventually it gets old and leaves you feeling empty and dead inside. You're going to have to face this no matter what. Either you choose face it now, on your terms, or you wait until you have a breakdown, and far less years of youth to work with.>t. 30-yr-old bloomer, ex doomer
>>50816065Same, man. I think it is ultimately a good thing and a sign of maturation, but it's been painful to go through the transition. I feel like I have less and less in common with the people around me at least in terms of easy conversation topics. All I want to do is make money in order to help save humanity from clownworld. I can hardly play video games or watch shows. Really have to be in the perfect mood. but I will watch and make use of dozens of fitness/finance/intellectual youtube videos a day.
>>50824278Chess is not even remotely close to the brilliance, simplicity, and depth that is go. Chess is but connect 4 in comparison.
>>50812043Seriously where in the fuck do you even buy a platform like that?
>>50813083ferme ta guele, fils de pute
>>50824642Same place you should be getting everything except clothing.
>>50811262Reading at least forces you to picture a scene that's describes, which encourages constructive thought, and creativityMovies, TV, and videoges just present exactly what the artists wanted shown, with little room for the consumee
>the salt about roasties in this threadYou guys realise the only reason you see/meet uninteresting girls is because you yourselves are uninteresting right? The people you associate are a reflection on you, if you want to meet interesting people you have to go out and do interesting things.I don't have lots of roastie friends but the ones I have are great, just like I don't have many male friends but the ones I have are great and do things because I also do things.
>>50824736consumption of most creative endeavours is fine as long as you perform analysis on the ideas and deeper meaning behind them. This will sharpen your mind, analysis of great TV and film and their themes is just as good as great literature.
>>50824763I'll agree with some film, but not "great tv." It serves another purpose and is less bound by time constraints.
>>50824782I'm a /lit/fag myself, so I think literature is superior but I'm not going to claim TV is a totally worthless hobby as long as you do it right. Mindless watching is trash, having theories on whats going to happen in the plot is trash, fan fic is trash, but thought into the characters, the themes and how these ideas affect life is fine.
>>50824808The latter is better suited for film is all I argue. I envy your /lit/faggotry. I learned to dislike read from a young age and I wish like hell I liked it now. But I read little above books on go and the scarce book on philosophy.t. go anon from above
>>50812805>>50812280I can confirm crazy horse girls are definitely a thing, but it isn't an absoluteMy most recent ex was a competition rider in her youth. She's on an SSRI, an SNRI, an antipsychotic, takes Klonopin when needed, and self-medicates with weed and alcohol daily. Sweet, sweet woman but completely bonkers
>>50821951lmao what kind of "partying" is some programming incel doing, this will be good
>>50824756dont bother dude, the lack of self-awareness /fit/ has is really funny
>>50811775Pretty based. I usually take 10 minute breaks during work by playing 5|5 chess games, i love it. Would love to eventually get into Go
You could learn a language or how to play an instrument I’d like to but I haven’t got started just yet. Normally if I know I’m gonna do nothing but fuck off and stare at my phone I just go for a walk. Can’t really call it productive but it’s better than staying still.
>>50811775What site/app do you use, anon?
the best bit that /fit/ does is when they talk about their hobbies and complain about how stupid the hobbies holes have are but guys here have hobbies just as terrible
>>50818767I got mine from here: https://shop.steprevolution.com/products/stepmaniax-stageExpensive, and rarely in stock, but it's arcade-grade. Otherwise you'll have to try your luck with metal pads online. The computer part is easy, just download stepmania 5 (https://www.stepmania.com/download/) and throw in some songs.
>>50825319>paying 1400 bucks to pretend to dancefor real
>>50813281date a hispanic girl/guy
Fuck I always find these threads super late at night and all the motivation keeps me up at night and goes away in the morning. Guess I'll stay up at night and do what? How can I just "do" something that requires a constant habit? There can be endless options for what I can do, but I don't even know what I actually have legitimate passion for. It's all contained in a mindset I don't know how to create.
>>50811105>read>study another language>lift>hike>go for long walks>fuck your momAdmittedly, I dont do these as much as I should, save for the last one.
>>50825338>pretend to danceI wish. It's more like weird-looking leg-vibrating. But it's fun, great cardio and less expensive than a treadmill.
>>50824756>t. roastiefuck off
>>50825160Do it, brother. It has helped me improve myself in many ways. >>50825208Online Go Server (OGS) for games, Sensei's library for info, Kiseido and Amazon for literature, Yellow Mountain Imports for supplies, Kurokigoishiten if you want to see/get the high end shit straight from the source. As for apps, eh, they all pretty much suck except for iOS exclusive SmartGo. In general, interacting on a 19x19 grid is very uncomfortable on even large phones.
Learning Japanese, how to draw, meditation, and I haven't touched my guitar in months but there's that too, I suppose. I've also been getting into learning to make myself have more dreams, working my way up to lucid dreaming.

Hint: you are neither
>>50811172YOU JUST KNOW
>>50811105>when your career is so shit and meaningless you feel the need to justify your existence with a "productive" hobby.I hate people like that. Had to talk with some 40-something married cunt the other day who kept complaining about her husband wanting to rest at home while she was collecting useless fucking hobbies like playing in a shitty band, taking dancing classes or doing fucking ugly pottery.What's worth doing is worth doing well. You only have enough time to do one or two things well. Collecting hobbies is for dilettantes.
>>50826207Bruh you just gotta try shit until you find something that clicks. No point trying to power through something you don't enjoy doing just because you think it'd be cool to be good at it.
>>50828741>I hate people like that.Then you hate 85% of people.
>>50828761Good.I much prefer talking with people who have dedicated themselves to their craft than hobby-devourers.
>>50828772What do you do for a living?
>>50812347Kinkakuji is for Chinese plebs who need to be directed to their designated photo spots. Ginkakuji is for people who appreciate serenity.
>>50828772What if they love their craft too much to sell it and don't want to taint the beauty of creation with the stench of needing money?
>>50813281Although I'm a Brazilian myself, and thus have a higher standard for what violence and shithole means, I really enjoyed Colombia, especially Bogota.Don't come to Brazil, though.
>>50816027>not wanting to experience all life has to offerI'm not saying you have to get into hard drugs or become a serial murderer, but having varied life experiences are much more fufilling (IMO) than narrowly engaging life in only a handful of ways.

I play tennis and paint. Read and hike sometimes too

I just bought a motorbike and I ride that about. Putting on a podcast and riding until it ends gets me the same feeling I got playing vidya in my teens that I just don't get from anything indoors anymore.
Learning guitar currently mainly anime songsplay drumswatch animelearning german fitness
>>50828825That's good too. I don't necessarily mean craft as your main job, there are people who do a job just to support themselves and perform their craft in their free time. But it's vastly different from just being a hobby bulimic and throwing your interests around like badges of honor.
