Being a NEET for the past year has been a unique experience.
I mean, it's rather unconventional (at least my background) that led to this situation, but I don't mind that.
I suppose I make this post to share how strange it is, to engage in the act of sharing this experience.
It is as though trying to give a lecture while wearing a Sailor Moon costume, wand for a pointer.
It's unlikely you'll make any serious points with enough self-awareness of how absurd you appear to others; what could you say with such "unqualified" perspective?
And if you go to the NEET convention, more often than not there's a deaf-dumb-mute sense in the air.
A catatonic cultural ethos, only slightly fought against but with some tongue-in-cheek acceptance.
I don't have any friends because most relationships are oriented around economical pursuits, and other pursuits eventually require some money too.
Most interactions are in this framework that you are ejected out of. It's just not an option.
And most NEETs you could interact with are in that limbo where they're still thinking or kidding to themselves that they're a part of the framework.
And maybe they are.
Sometimes there's a desire to pose as a NEET even though you're in college or some PhD program, etc.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
