I'm getting older (31) and not sure what to do with my life. I feel like I have no direction other than trying to finally finish college and get a well paying job. I used to fill my time with nerd stuff like video games, movies, and browsing 4chan but now it feels empty to me. Is this mid life crisis? I feel like I'm going to be doing the same thing over and over until I eventually die and have no purpose.

This isn't an issue, just realize that you've run out of "standard life script" and society now has nothing more to really teach you to be a functional person. Embrace the ambiguity and look into yourself to figure out what you want next.

Stop watching porn for 6 months, it could help you regain your vitality. You're a lobotomized bugman, quit porn and seek a higher purpose.

I already feel like this at 22, im a neet tho

32, similar state. My guess is to finally pick some things and try to excel at them, it's what i'm striving to do. Pick one skill, one activity you really enjoy and take it to another level.
Or make couple of kids with some broad, a wise chinaman once said all the hobbies and shit are just substitutes/cope for not having a family.

I'm in a similar state, probably worse off. I did a math degree though in my early 20s, but it never materialized a job so I became extremely stagnant and turned to alcohol to pass the time. Recently went to rehab, was sober for a long time, but relapsed due to the boredom. I'm too scared to even find a job now and just spend all day in my room shitposting and watching movies. I've honestly thought about just committing suicide in my car recently. The only thing I enjoy is going to an escort every now and then when I get my neetbux cheque.

Buy a fast motorcycle and scream down the highway at 100 mph until the thrill of speed outruns your fear of life or death. Worked for me.

doesn't it make you bitter? completing one of the hardest degrees uni has to offer, but is it completely useless in industry? especially w/o a phD. since you've got math brains, why not pick up programming? it's child's play, given that our brains have been rigorously challenged via proofs, theorems, axioms. but sounds like you have deeper, personal issues given the sheer booze you drinking.

I know how to program, took courses in it in uni and even used it on a research job I had for a few years. I self taught myself a lot and put projects on my github. Literally no one responds to any applications. It's just pointless after 3 years to keep looking. I just got depressed and stopped practising, so I wouldn't even be competent when it came to interview time. I don't want to practice and do more projects again if it's going to be the same thing. It's hard to keep doing things out of passion if no ones ever going to recognize you for your work.

grad school? ml/dl/ai? you definitely have the iq, talent, skill. idk why you're letting depression hold you back. 99.7%+ of /adv/ can only dream of being able to do what you do. unemployment sucks, indeed, but you actually have the capacity to escape your situation.

Go softwar or finance mat bros get picked up by this shit all of the time or info sec. Look for security enginner with a minum of 1year experience on job post just application bomb linked in. And then get me a job once you get in i know how to get hired by places i just need help afterwards if only i could use these skills to get laid seducing hiring managers is easy getting botches is hard
>>
>>27055844
Drop that info i can help im good at getting hiring managers to look at me. First apply for the job on multiple job sites and even temp agencies then when you find one that interests you. Call the company and ask to get redirected to the hiring manager in charge of the position you are interested in. Once you get them in a call with you tell them you are interested in applying for the position posted online. Chat them up if you want it helps. This is to distinguish yourself from the work version of online dating that is job applications make these hoes interested by forcing them to pay attention
