Have you ever picked up any hobbies because of anime, /a/?
Does being a general failure in life and a NEET count as a hobby?
Are you saying anime is somehow responsible for you turning out the way you did?
Yes. I decided to watch anime because it's better than almost all 3D shit.
Same here but I think I gave up too early. I quit because I was disappointed in the disparity between my imagination and what I could put on paper but that was before I learned how long it takes to truly master a skill.
Also holy shit I can't into markers. Colored pencils all the way.
I wouldn't say anime gave me new hobbies per-se. It did change my tastes in old ones though. Bought a bunch of guns because they were in shows I liked, and I started collecting gunto swords. My drawing style shifted as well.
I was obsessed with origami for a few months in middle school because I was a massive weeb because of anime, does that count? Otherwise, anime has pretty much sapped all my other hobbies away the more I got into it.
How? Seems like it'd usually be the other way around.
>tfw trying to start a club at college but literally no one knows what it even is
Because I have a desperate instinct to fit in, I always thought of myself as a fairly anti-social guy, and all the MCs are complete losers who don't do any activities at all, so it makes me feel insecure.
getting to play one of the most hardest heroes to play in DotA.
There's gotta be a reason (aside from addiction narrative) why people do become closet introverts. I mean, it's pretty clear that we weren't made to move stones, not made to farm the fields etc. when machines are 1000x more productive than us. I feel like those people who say "get out of your basement" have no idea themselves.
>I mean, it's pretty clear that we weren't made to move stones, not made to farm the fields
We weren't "made" to do anything, if that's what you mean. But evolutionarily building robots to farm and hunt for us wasn't the idea, methinks.
W-well the girls all looked like they are having so much fun together and they take pictures
and I don't have any friends so I got a job at a small little coffee shop near my place
and continued to not have any friends
It's weird because all the other colleges in this city have kendo teams. Hell, one of them even hosts one of the largest kendo tournaments in my country every year, but I have yet to find one person to start something with.
I'm still holding out on the possibility of meeting a cute kendo 3D to form a club with.
I don't think anyone around here does kendo, honestly. My firm has a fencer, that's it really. It's a tough life, being a responsible adult with barely any chance to slip and inappropriately land on a girl who vaguely looks like teh Rei.
Never give up, I've been trying to get good for years and I still suck.
Pic related, it's a doodle on my homework.
I chose my University degree because of anime, if that counts
Going to the gym because of Hajime no Ippo. Never got that buff sadly, just don't have that body type. But I did get defined enough to have six packs and shit. Started that way back in 2008. Hitting the gym every other day back then, though now I only go 3 times a week.
At that time I was watching Gundam, Planetes and Space Brothers
So I picked Space Engineering and now I have no time for anime. no regrets
>have to find members in order to start a club
>find members, work hard and face the big teams from other schools
I tend to play with my dad and other... problem with dad is his insistence we play with real money. So we have a gigantic pile of loonies (canadian 1 dollar coins) from which 80$ are probably from me losing. God I suck
Someone here admitted a short while ago that he chose physics/engineering degree because he watched fucking VRO out of anything else.
Yes. I learned Japanese, Shogi, Go, sign language, cooking, and I became an artist.
My job requires me to know Eng/Jap, I've played against tons of people in Shogiu/Go during my career, and I've also accommodated plenty for sign language. Cooking is a life skill and I've impressed plenty of people just following a fucking cookbook. I make money on the side drawing people's fetishes.
There is no better feeling than meeting a deaf person and signing to them. I've had more than 1 start crying.
I only bought this wacom with the sole intention of playing osu and drawing smug anime faces
>mfw aforementioned super huge tournament is literally hosted by the neighboring school
What do I do to trigger flags
My handwriting is pretty God awful.
I'm trying to learn how to use my tablet, but I must be retarded or something
I doubt it. Do they even have internet up there?
I don't like to talk about that anon.
It's a good feeling. I want to pick up other things but I'm already stretched thin. I get to visit Japan often simply for business meetings. I get to interact and talk to people who don't get to talk to people usually.
>Going to a middle school and signing for the little girls and boys who never get to actually talk to people
I can't even describe the joy I feel in doing this.
Depends what you mean. It took me a year to be able to fully understand what the fuck people were saying, but that was constant studying.
I've only been NEET for a few months now, but it happened because I realized that I spent every moment at college wondering why anyone gets out of bed in the morning, when killing themselves would be far easier. It's important to find something in life that evens out all the shitty parts, but finding that can be really hard I guess.
I'm sure it's better than mine
for the last years of school I wasn't allowed to write anything down because no one could read it. Ihad to grab a laptop before every lesson
shit was embarrasing especially considering it had been doing 3 hours of handwriting lessons per week every week for the previous 6 or so ywars
>Mods autosaging thread
Let me talk about my worthless hobbies I picked up from anime you faggots.
They're somewhat related but the mod deems it off topic.
Basically what /trash/ was supposed to be for.
back when I was into anime and video games I already knew my fate that I'll be stuck in the screen even as I get older.
So I opened up a net cafe. I'm pretty much living the dream right now.
Thread is dying anon. What am I lying about? I work in IT, I interact with lots of Japanese companies for my own company in Murrika. I usually only stay in Japan for 1-3 days but it adds up when I have to do it all the fucking time for work.
I also sign for middle school/high school assemblies. Sometimes I get to do government stuff(consul meetings) but it's not easy to get in to.
Unless you mean learning the Jap language. I know people in real life who speak/write it.
Another language. Doesn't even have to be Japanese.
That's pretty much all there is though.
>you will never open up a cozy cafe with your short haired flat chested waifu
Hunting... failing that, I suggest learning how to make things in a smithy.
Had fun just getting rail spikes, heating them up and them smashing them with a hammer into weird shapes. You can make neato knives if you take the time to shape them
Stop making me depressed you fucking asshole. Do you always go on /a/ to brag about how good your life is?
I was writing pretty slowly. it's just something like my hand and my brain are having trouble sending information to eachother. no matter how slowly and carefully I write it always looks pretty bad
there's some fancy term for it but I've got so many non-life threatening conditions that I just don't bother remembering the names of most of them
You just do. It's not a science. You have to learn though experience.
You learn what works and what doesn't through talking to people.
No. My life took over a decade to make ''good' and I lived at home till I was 25. You think it was just handed to me? I had to work for it.
inb4 programmin' =! web dev'ing
Somehow I get the idea insulting someone's taste in something I haven't watched, calling them a faggot, and then pulling up a reaction image on my phone to show them wouldn't get me many acquaintances.
I want someone to do this to me. It'd be an experience I could never forget.
It actually does as long as you're a likable person. I call people retarded and shit at work all the time but it's because I help them do what needs to be done or what they need help with. In turn, once I call them a raging faggot and they suck at life, they think I'm joking.
He spends his money on his hobbies. If you think that's a waste of money just stop paying for anything but food.
I want to force a poor desperate girl to perform personal services in exchange for money.
You become some sick depraved animal. Thread is going to die so I don't give a fuck.
>Find some cute poor girl who needs money
>Said I'll pay her if she does this and that
>This is my fetish
>She starts crying as she gets forced to swallow
>Become some sick animal and throw her and myself in to depravity doing other sick acts till I'm satisfied
We're good friends now but that isn't the point.
I have money and she was a cute virgin. I have a rape/blackmail/degradation fetish.
I enjoyed it but it scared me. Never ever 3DPD.
There is more to but but thread will die soon.
>Kind of knew her in high school
>She dropped out
>She never talked to anyone, was always kind of out there
>Was cute but had that weird personality that made people avoid her
>Got her contact info, god knows why, after she dropped out
>Text her asking whats going on and that I was a classmate(explained who I was etc)
>After texting back and forth she explained her family had money issues and her home was basically a wreck
>This went on for awhile, we got kind of close
>Said I could help her if she did stuff for me
>We were 'close' enough that she said yes
>Practically did anything I wanted
>Literally did anything I wanted from tying her up giving her an enema for anal, making her swallow, etc
>This went on for days before I paid her
>Entire act went on for months
Glad the thread is dead.
