NEET Freaks

Post by stubby » Tue Oct 27, 2015 1:49 pm

So it looks like we lost the previous NEET thread in the Overlution. Here's the new one.
tl;dr:
> never found good work while living here
> utterly paralyzed by looking for work
> afraid of rejection, but also afraid of success
> like whiteagle in every unfortunate way (this is the worst part)
Here's the latest entry-level posting from my neck of the woods:
