Soon ill finish my college and all I dream about is becoming a hikikomori. However I have no idea how would I sustain myself. Im aware that living shut in costs very little little but still gotta have that little money
Gambling money on crypto doesn't seem like a reasonable thing to do
Indoor garden sounds like a meme and still doesn't pay the rent

I'm 31, still a hikkikomori.
A few months ago I managed to gather myself enough to get a remote work job, it's shit and shady but I'm getting money, though not enough to live by on the long term.

I tried streaming, knew it was a stupid idea for a guy who has social and emotional issues, deleted everything after a few weeks.

I learned to read hiragana/katakana thinking maybe I can use my weeb interests into a marketable skill but lost interest after the 2 weeks of learning kana was complete.

I know I can't stay like this but I can't seem to work up the spirit to try harder.
Because when I do, I end up doing something really fucking stupid and make a mess for everyone. I want to try harder and I want to stop me from trying anymore.

Didn't expect to live this long, figured I'd off myself before wizardry.

If you believe that you wasted your life, as you seem to have insinuated you will gain nothing from regretting and will only depress yourself. You cannot change anything from the past. There is something that I can assure you of that will always be true. It does not matter if you live for the next 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, 30 years, 50 years, or even 100 years. The day before you die you will regret ever worrying about your life instead of thinking of what you want to do. Every new year that you do live, you will regret not having started anything you wanted to do the year prior, only regretting the past more. What I mean is that you should think of what you want to do today; not starting next year or next month, but today. Thinking that you are not going to be able to do anything in the future will only ensure that fate.

I don't want to sound like someone trying to force pills down your throat, but I went from 'cannot function normally in public' to 'completely relaxed even when talking to strangers around town' over the course of a year thanks to medication provided to me by a psychiatrist. I thought pills could never work for me, so I never even considered them. I was 25 when I finally gave them a chance, and now I am very relaxed both at home and in public. For me, it was a very good thing.

I used to be like this
at my lowest I haven't left my home 3 years straight, not a single time not even for christmas.

I don't know your situation but getting a psychiatrist is what kickstarted all of this and it still took like 4 years for me to get somewhat better, I can take the bus now, make appointments and go to the store without exploding with fear.

If you can get the chance to visit one I would highly recommend it. it's not even about anti depressants altough they can help. Having someone to talk to that you have to visit like once a month and gives you tips helps a lot. Just having something that forces you outside helps you to slowly acclimate. Also you can get meds that help to keep your heartrate down so you don't shake like crazy when you leave your home, I had to use them for a while at the start.

Good luck anon I know you can get better
I thought I was a lost cause but I managed to turn things around and if I can do it, so can you

With me they're not being petty, they're insulting me, following me around and laughing at me despite how hard I try to be polite and mind my own business. I can't be a hikki because there's too many things I enjoy outside but I can't handle how strangers will use you as their punching bag for no reason.

This is a good suggestion. Many people don't wish to see a psychiatrist because they assume they'll be forced into SSRIs or other medications that alter brain chemistry. I too expressed such concerns and instead was given something for performance anxiety, more like a blood pressure medication to reduce heart rate and the physical symptoms of anxiety. Just that made getting through social situations significantly easier. Still an awkward fuckup, but at least it isn't physically painful to do so.

Eight months isn't the end of the world. I think a lot of employers will give it a pass if you make up a good excuse.

I had this problem for the time I stopped being a neet hikki. It was at my job mostly, at a factory that worked alongside a pretty important international one (though other places treated me like shit too).
My own coworkers and bosses made every day living hell, and I'm not some weirdo like you would imagine, I acted normal, talked to other two new coworkers normally (the only kind people there), helped, did what I needed to do despite being mostly quiet. During the first month my boss would literally say in front of me to another coworker "I reall wanna hit this guy..." and both would laugh, then I would get yelled at and insulted by other coworkers and during my last day (I didn't know they would fire me that same day) my other boss would walk by behind me and on a low voice only I could barely hear, he would insult me.
I vented a bit, but the months tried to stop being a neet shattered me. I needed medication to go through every work day and my agoraphobia got worse. The couple of guys I talked to wanted to gtfo too, and most people usually leave that place quickly.
I'm now back to being a neet but go out to do chores and exercise at my home gym like always. I don't believe I was made for this, and I don't know how other people do it and manage to get what they want in life(good job, money, forming a family) This situation is actually crippling my plan of meeting someone I've been wanting to meet in another country for a while. This whole year that has been my only light of hope, but time goes by and chances run out quickly.
At least there are other anons in similar situations and I don't feel too alone.

Not your fucking therapist, but you're not giving yourself enough credit. Yeah, you lucked out on a shitty job and coworkers, but these things arent exclusive to the painfully neurotic. Almost everyone has had a shitty job they've hated or couldn't get along with personalities at some point, ask your parents at least.

You made a successful attempt by acquiring a job and even managed to hold a shitty factory for a month. I've worked in similar environments and I have seen able-bodied grown ass men abandoning their job post during one of their breaks(not even lasting a week), tail between the legs.

I think it's too early for you to give up just yet.

I honestly thought I wouldn't make it after stuff that happened to me several years ago, yet Im still here. Didn't think I'd get a job anytime soon and Im already working at a decent office job with cool coworkers and bosses out of luck. Didn't think I'd be able to buy myself my own stuff yet here I am with a decent gaming pc playing all the games I wanted to play since ages ago and even took an interest in learning JP and coding, writing and drawing.
The only thing right now is learn how to manage my time better to have even more time for everything I want to do.
If even I was near death's door and thought I wouldn't make it just to end up having a decent life in the end, means a lot of people here can do it. Don't give up just yet. unless you like being a hikki then, I guess its fine if it floats your boat

I got a part-time job before the pandemic and work remote ever since, it's barely enough to pay rent and eat but I don't know how much longer I can keep this up, I'm approaching wizard powers and despite having no issues talking to people and going outside I just feel physically ill all the time due to years of stress, trauma and self-medication.

I can competitively touch anything digital, from art to music to code and make more than a stellar amount of money from any of these areas in a small amount of time.
But I can't actually keep myself invested in any of said "hobbies" for more than a week at best as I literally do not feel any joy from it, so I've never actually held a real job and have only lived off of small bursts of commissions/third party work and as such I am constantly running the risk of flat out losing my home/electricity/water just because I "don't feel like doing it".

Unfortunately I don't have much, and the things I do have are starting to break down/aren't sufficient for most things.
I plan on working for a year or to get a decent computer and savings in case I get thrown out. After that, I'll try and find a way to make money at home maybe, or get another job for a while.

I'd rather rot in my room than end up having to work all day and night at a job I'll slowly grow to hate again.

There is no reason to not be a shut in at this point. The outside world is degenerate and beyond redemption. Humanity is no longer capable of being reformed. The only tasks left to mankind are to purge the flesh of wantonness and prepare for battle, physical and psychical.

Modern therapeutic culture promotes the myth that there is nothing that can't be undone or changed if you are unhappy. You can take pills or go to therapy and everything will be a-ok. This is a lie.

You cannot waste your youth and emerge, years later, from your hiki abode and pick up right back where you were. Past the age of 25 or so its all over. The most ambitious people your age will have houses, careers, maybe even families, and you will simply fall further and further behind with each day you spend in isolation.
