How do you break this vicious circle? Posted on May 21, 2023 by Anonymous How do you break this vicious circle?
Not working helps
Lol no you'll burn out of gaming before you know it
I spent the final 4 years of my neetdom not playing games
Yeah when I was a neet I got tired of games cause they went from something I did for fun to just filling the void of nothing going on in my life. It wasn't until I got a job I actually enjoyed doing I wound up enjoying video games again.
live to work and work to live
thousands of years of human history for this
we don't even allow ourselves to build our own homes
I built my home. Quit being a pussy.
No, you didn't, garden gnome's puppet.
Blame ~~*cückpitalism*~~ and the gnomish golems defending it.
The past 123 years have been a psyop to make citizens reliant on capitalist/industrialists so we become the new slave class. Even paying off your house doesn't mean shit in most places because the capitalists have set up property tax laws that will take away your paid off home.
so true comrade! workers of the world unite!
>Workers of the world unite!
you could put a little more effort into your psyop, shabbos
Property taxes aren't a part of the capitalist scheme, these go to the city to keep it running, based on the agenda of who you elected democratically.
The capitalist scheme is to keep the working class desperate; pay workers pennies on the value they actually produce while also buying up all the land to jack up property values. Make sure most workers are paid exactly what it costs to survive, which you can do since you now control both sides of the equation. Now workers live paycheck to paycheck, so you can threaten them with homelessness if they try to get uppity.
Oh also, ask your media mogul friends to push propaganda that convinces the workers hate each other. This isolates the workers from one another and destroys solidarity, defeating the only true weapon against your capitalist scheme: collective action.
>The capitalist scheme is to keep the working class desperate
And one of the methods the capitalists use are taxes, which weigh heavily on the working class, but don't affect the wealthiest capitalists at all.
You could build your own home, there’s just an overwhelming chance it would be incredibly shitty and you’d fuck up the wiring and the plumbing
>we don't even allow ourselves to build our own homes
whats stopping you?
and you can just buy the entire kit from your local hardware store. just follow the instructions
that's extremely cheap for a home
i was seeing shit for like 250k and it was way smaller than that
mind you, this is just the materials. but you can always go with the cuck shed
you can buy like 4 cuck sheds and put them all together and with a few modifications have a decent sized home for 1+ person
even buying 6 of those would be a family sized home and still be cheaper than the earlier post
weird innit. but its the shit thats inside that starts to add up, cabinetry and countertops are a giant ripoff for one. for two these sheds dont have toilets
one of those could be a master bathroom suite
damn what a great idea!
what store is that
menards, but you can probably find these kinds of kits in a bunch of places
Is that thing gonna survive the first strong wind it encounters?
shouldnt be any different than most homes, unless a tornado comes at it itll be fine. simple wood frame, insulated, drywall, cement foundation, walls need to be thick enough for the sliding glass door and double hung windows. sturdier than your typical shed.
That's actually kinda cute
I got a work shed in my backyard I never actually use, but honestly I think having a windowed door like this would be pretty nice. It gets pretty damn musty in there.
personally, its the Gray Lake cabin for me. kitchen, bathroom, 15x9 living room plus upstairs bedroom. absolutely cozy.
need to rip some of those plans and styles for an attempt at cozy architecture in a video game or something
Woah, cool! So I can just buy the kit and build my new home anywhere I want?
There's that little thing called "property" or "land" that you need to be able to purchase, before building anything anywhere.
Not to mention all the permits.
And all the safety inspectors to make sure its up to code.
Wow, suddenly that's not such a viable option for everyone anymore, huh?
nobody said you didnt have to take care of that retard.
Not our fault you don't own land chud. Should have paid attention in school.
>Not to mention all the permits.
>And all the safety inspectors to make sure its up to code.
actually wanting to build a house somewhere that has codes and permits. ngmi fagaroo
WHY DONT YOU GET A JOOOOOOOOOOOB
no need to type like a smug condescending reddit gay, anon
imagine waiting on a fifteen thousand dollar mail in rebate lol
this seems like a really fun lego project with some friends
a shame they're actually poorly designed and have terrible layouts
So build a home you fucking whiner lmao. No one is stopping you except your own stupidity.
More like thousands of years of balancing work with leisure then 150 years of turbomoron work work work, sleep (6hr a day), work work work. At least we have skyscrapers and cheap carbohydrates now, totally worth it.
You couldn't if you wanted to because you're biologically incapable.
People like you exist to make me feel better about myself.
Thousands of years ago man figured out he didn't need to hunt when he could manipulate the Human cattle around him to toil in the field for him
Drugs and "work" from home
Is that you working in that picture?
Play before you go to work
Start working out
this but unironically, since I started working out I have more energy despite sleeping a bit less than before, also don't eat meals that are made only composed off carbohydrates because you will get big dose of insulin into blood which makes you sleepy, part of why in some cultures you have time sleep after big meal, for example Italians since pasta+ sauce is very carbohydrate dense meal
she looks like she needs a good dicking
Nap at work
>turns into a lucky star character
nice work anon you did it, now we can all play
delete the first and second panels
you forgot to remove her clothes in second panel and have controller vibrating
I actually love doing this, playing games with comfy OSTs to fall asleep.
I work 50 hours a week of hard labor. I play videogames 60 hours a week. I still find time to finish 2-3 anime a week as well. I don't understand how people don't have time to do things that they want to.
So basically for the math to check out for this you basically play video games during your whole free time. Seriously, even if you only sleep 6 hours a night, that gives you at maximum 2 hours a day of non-gaming.
You're a fucking loser mate.
not to mention chores and shopping, cooking
maybe he's got his mother there to do it for him
he's either full of shit or he lives in his mum's basement and then games every waking hour. what a pathetic existence.
You're terrible at math. Even with this I still have 4h/day to do other shit.
be born rich
I really haven't had a game I really wanted to play in awhile.
Maybe Elden Ring? But I finished it pretty quickly and took a long weekend to marathon it so it was really just 3 days at work, and at that point I was glad to take a break.
I remember I used to feel like this about MMOs, but there hasn't been a good MMO in a long while.
if I knew working from home was gonna be a common career option when I dropped out college in 2013 I might have stayed because that has gotta be the best reason ever to get a better job.
For me it’s fall asleep or just not be in the mood to game. I think it’s fixable by just having a good sleep schedule and not sleep 6 hrs a day
> sleeping less than 6 hours a day
do you want to die?
play on the weekends.
week nights are for movies/TV/anime/manga
Retire, then you can play all the games you want. Seriously, there's no way around it. I'm like OP pic and I don't even have kids to worry about
Playing on weekends, so you dedicate all your attention to do house chores and that something that actually gives you money.
Then you’re blame free to do whatever you want all the weekend.
You dumb bitch.
FOR FUCK'S SAKE
GET YOUR FUCKING SLEEP
7 HOURS MINIMUM
FOR FUCK'S SAKE ALL YOU STUPID FUCKING ZOOMERS KEEP STAYING UP TIL LIKE 1:00 AM EVERY GOD DAMN NIGHT
THEN GET LIKE 5 HOURS OF SLEEP
ALARM YOURSELF OUT OF BED AT 6:00 AM
AND ARE LIKE "Bro I totally got enough sleep, I, like, don't even feel like immediately falling unconscious at this moment."
AND THEN " " " " "SOMEHOW" " " " " EVERY FUCKING TEENAGER AND ADULT AND ALL THEIR FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS FUCKING COMPLAINING AND WHINING ABOUT JUST BEING "DRAINED"
"THE BARE MINIMUM OF WORK IS KILLING ME"
"I FALL ASLEEP THE SECOND I GET HOME (but like, not actual sleep, just a series of quick accidental naps until 1:00 am bedtime)"
AND YOU WILL "MAGICALLY" FIND ALL THE ENERGY YOU EVER NEEDED TO GET THROUGH THE DAY AND ENJOY YOURSELF AFTERWARD
Oh, and one more thing:
STOP RELYING ON DRUGS LIKE CAFFEINE TO KEEP YOU CONSCIOUS FROM MORNING TIL NIGHT YOU FUCKING RETARD
What a moronic post
>t. gets 5 hours of sleep every night and "it's enough" yet has problems staying awake to enjoy his favorite hobby
cringe and cucked
based and chad
this is the right answer.
alternatively, if even that isn't helping, try switching your play time and your sleep time around, instead of waking up and going straight to work, go from work to bed, wake up much earlier, play before work.
I always did feel better at school when I'd gotten up early to finish some homework, so I gotta give this a try
>sleep 5 hours: tired
>sleep 8 hours: tired
>sleep 10 hours: tired
>sleep 14 hours: tired
Kill me, Pete.
Dude, get your shit checked for sleep apnea.
Like, for real.
Most people don't even know they have it until they watch a recording of themselves sleeping and see how often they end up choking on their own throat in the middle of the night, always ending up tired no matter how long they sleep.
Not that anon, but I'm in a similar position and got checked for sleep apnea. I had very few breaks in breathing during the night, not enough to be actually diagnosed with apnea.
What they did find though is that I spent very little time in deep sleep during the night, and my doctors are currently trying to figure out why that is.
too much energy drinks
The brain naturally produces something like 0.5 mg of Taurine each day.
One energy drink contains something like 20 mg Taurine.
Current scientific research on Taurine:
>idk, has something to do with energy levels I guess, we're not really sure what it does lol probably safe to guzzle it
I don't drink energy drinks, and all the soft drinks I do drink are decaf.
science magicians are saying to drink 12 cups of water a day instead of 8
i remember drinking lots of water throughout one day, no caffeine, and i managed to stay up for the whole day and a good portion of the night
drinking water helps with wakefulness and attention span
excessive vitamin b?
i have giga sleep apnea cause im a fat fuck
i havent felt energy in 20 years
Get a CPAP. It's life changing. My dad got one after being diagnosed by sleep apnea and it improved his quality of life immensely.
i tried that but wearing the mask gave me mad claustrophobia
such is life
dont eat sugars and drink only distilled/RO water
doesnt distilled water leech vitamins and minerals from your body?
Yes it does anon wants to poison you.
I'm no doctor but I have this feeling that lemon juice and a pinch of salt should make distilled water safe to drink.
well then i sure hope he isnt serious on his end of the "joke"
spent my college days sleep-deprived and cranky, that was fucking retarded in retrospect
I work 13 hour shift work and have an hour commute
Im lucky if I get 5
13 hour shifts are illegal
Quit your job you fucking lunatic, I rather be homeless then do that
why do you do it
basically yeah, it's on the same level as eating and drinking
I feel drained every single day. I've been sleeping 5 hrs a day for the past couple of months. I am feeling like shit. I am going to try to sleep 8 hrs today even if it kills me. I am going to change my shitty lifestyle. Thanks
>stays awake until 12 am
>sleeps 5 to 6 hours a day
>nap on lunch break so long I eat as fast as possible
>sleeps well enough if I don't fap before going to sleep
You guys might be fapping too much
Sleep at work.
Quit your job.
You try to hide the vore edit I did
Yet it still is there, peeking through
It's hard. When you have a job and actual responsibilities, it becomes difficult to ever disconnect from the real world and plug yourself into an artificial one. It feels like you can't do it because you might become too engrossed and miss something important. It's easier to just watch other people or daydream.
Stop eating grains, sugars, vegetables, etc.
Only eat red meat.
Boom, that solves your energy issues.
By playing the videogames.
I go to bed early and get 8 hours + every night.
I also drink lots of water.
>get to bed early
How? I think of playing a game just for some time before bed and then it extends to a 3 hour gaming session. My impulse control is getting worse as the stress in my life increases.
Anon I think you might have answered your own question.
eat better and exercise. have a consistent sleep schedule too (and don't sleep in on weekends)
Eat unprocessed food, drink lots of water and exercise 4 times a week
i have manic depression so i alternate between getting more, sometimes excessive amounts of sleep, and none at all
and let me tell you guys this, it sucks hardcore donkey wiener when you work in the construction industry doing that, thank fucking god i do the office work instead of site work
it was either this or take crazy pills so, it is what it is
Oh that brings memories. I used to process bills and do site measurements, it was really an awful job.
next rep who sends me fucked up submittals im going to be on the fucking local news
I used to work for a construction project in shithole country and the contractor always used to make up bullshit figures and claim more than the actuals. It was awful trying to verify everything through inspection and basically do their job as well on top of your own.
By not being a fat fucking boomer? How do you not have any energy? Are you 300 pounds and eat McDonald's every day or something? I'm nearing 30 and feel identical to how I felt when I was 21, in fact, I feel better. Maybe I'm just built better.
Besides, what fucking games are there to play? I play maybe five games a year, I've played everything good already. Are you wasting your time playing the latest AAA slop or something?
It's pretty easy just when you wake up go to work in under a hour
ive worked from home almost full time before covid, now full time after covid and probably into forever
>work 14 to 16 hour days
>have tonsa money
>too tired to actually do anything with it
>all i want to do is sleep when im not working
I have a successful career and I've never been so unhappy in my life. I'm thinking about throwing it all away or simply just ending myself.
Get a satisfying hobby, anon-sama.
nta, but I took up piano and it's been a much better way to spend my evenings than sitting in front of my laptop.
It's pretty cringe how I'm seeing the same fucking image posted more frequently. If you're too tired to play games they're not stimulating enough and you're growing bored of them. Otherwise:
>Drink more water
>Get more sleep overall
>Eat at least 3 times a day
>Little to no masturbation
If you do at least 3 of those things you will have enough energy to play a couple hours at least. Who am I kidding the average age of this board is 24 year olds struggling to live in the real world.
I have the strangest sleep problem. I can sleep 7+ hours but ONLY if I sleep that in one entire session. For example if I go to bed at 12 or something and happen to wake up at 9 the next morning, great, cool.
If I go to bed at 12 and wake up at say...6? I am FUCKED. I can try my ass off to go back to sleep but my body refuses. Is there any way to GUARANTEE my body will stay the fuck sleeping for a solid 8+ hours with 0 interruptions? keep in mind this is not noise or anything that wakes me up, I just randomly wake up too early and I am fucked as my body refuses to knock out, I stay in bed tossing adn turning and nothing happens
Melanin tablets but careful with the dosage as it may cause you to oversleep.
>look it up
>aka "tanning pills" used to help change skin tone
Uh anon..you sure you talking about the right thing?
Shit. I meant to say melatonin. Look it up now.
Simple enough mistake to make, sounds similiar. I see it now. Is this over the counter shit or do I need a doc to prescribe it?
I think you need a doctor prescription. My mom just gave me some when I had trouble sleeping, she is a doctor and I don't know how she gets it.
Nah, it's over the counter almost everywhere. Careful not to take it too often, can mess up your sleep even further
then when should you take it? if you have a sleep problem it's kinda useless to use these "some of the time" if the problem is just going to continue anyway?
You shouldn't be falling asleep hours before bedtime if you're
1. getting enough sleep
2. taking care of your body
3. not overworking
You snooze you lose, fuckboy, git gud at having energy and rationing it. Get more sleep at night, eat healthy, and take supplements. Your body will thank you and reward you with more gayman time
travel back in time to 2012 and literally buy stocks from any big tech company
im going go to sleep soon i wish you a goodnight
Look at this chud comic. Look at this chud comic self insert. Look at the chud self in sert in a suit

Point at it - and laugh!
>work from home
>do minimum work needed, chill, take small breaks and do some chores on the side to save time
>end of work, start of gaming
Me but when I was in the Army lmao. Was like a fucking sloth always taking naps.
You can't, I've been off work for about a month now and besides having enough time to do all the gaming I want I've actually begun having consistent dreams again due to not being irregularly forced out of bed early in the morning. Work is death.
3 days off in a row is something every human needs.
1 day to completely rest is necessary after 4 days straight of work
I get off work at 12, eat something and take a nap and still have a whole afternoon free. What are you doing wrong?
Manage your sleep schedule better. I make sure to get at least seven hours of sleep and work a job that's way more physically intensive than most people for about ten hours a day yet I still have energy to play video games after work. Hell a day or two ago I almost stayed up too late playing Tony Hawk.
