My three weeks as a NEET Empty My three weeks as a NEET

Post by kaede on 2015-03-16, 01:02

Because wayne was insulted that i posted about my life on rulebreaker instead of here, I figured I'd post a short diary here. As some people may not know, I have moved out of my parents house in the nice cool desert of SoCal (yes California is a desert, only reason it's better off than Nevada or Arizona is because were right next to the ocean), to the somewhat harsh desert of Nevada, close to Las Vegas to be exact.

Week one
Still in Torrance. Week mainly consisted of filling out transfer paperwork so I would have a job where I moved to. Main thing I did was pack what little clothes I have into suitcases, getting boxes for my game consoles, computer and 55in tv and making arrangements with my brother to bring Beatrice and Haruka (my dogs) a few weeks after I left. Downtime was spent playing Majora's Mask 3ds, and Little Busters.

Week two
Day one:
Woke up late and left at 9am to teary good byes from mom and dad. Very little traffic on the road so I got to my new home about 5 hours later. Unpack my stuff and going to sleep. Cant sleep because im use to living next to a busy street, total silence creeps me out.

Day two - four:
Holy hell its like im 10 years old again! Feel like shit because my body is use to living at sea level and not 2k-3k ft above. Feel like shit the whole day (stupid heart condition) so I spend it in bed (dad came up the week before and put together a bed, washer, dryer, and fridge) ignoring the packed boxes. and tv.

Day five:
Still feel like shit but gotta do something. So I unpack my stuff(taking most of the day because the world hates me) and set up my computer only to find no internet. Cut off from the world with only my phone to use as entertainment I watch Futurama on netflix most of the day.

Day six:
Woken up by my neighbors pet ass looking through my window and start screaming, scaring the poor ass away. left home several hours later and decide to go out to town to explore. Find that it has two casinos, three grocery stores, a few fast food places, and no jack in the box. Also found a computer store with a mini museum showing the evolution of computers from commodore 64 to modern day windows, also the place that sells internet so I sign up for the best package around here (15mbps dl 2mbps up) though i gotta wait a week before it gets here.

Day seven:
Too lazy to go out so I just stay in all day playing games.

Week three
Day one:
Finally start getting back on my exercise schedule. Failed at it, could barley run two miles before im exhausted. Spend the rest of the day playing games while taking breaks and using the exercise equipment I brought from home.

Day two:
Go out to vegas to see relatives and gamble a bit. Stay the night at uncles house.

Day Three:
Return home late in the day because i decided to go see where i'll work in vegas from now on. Boss seems nice enough, but dont know if I'll have to start manager training all over again.

Day four - five:
Stay at home, doing light exercise and playing games.

Day Six:
Internet guy comes over mid day and hooks me up to the net. Afterwords went to the casinos to have a little fun.

Day seven: Starting work in a few days, so I'm nervous. Spent the day wandering around town. Turns out the town I'm living in has several whore houses. Also found a cheap gym, but its just another planet fitness type gym where people are not serious about getting in shape.

Week four
Day one:
Matt drops my dogs off. I missed them so much, and they apparently missed me because they tackled me to the ground and gave me a bunch of kisses. Matt stays the day helping me finish unpacking and just talking to me. Finally go outside at night and see more stars then I ever saw in civilized area.

Day two:
Back to work. Find out through a phone call that my parents wana help me pay the rent (I think its because they still feel guilty that I dropped out of school and got a job when dad lost his job) and reluctantly accept.

Sounds like a pretty exciting couple of weeks. If you don't mind me asking, how did you find the job in vegas? (and what job is it, exactly?).

Working at gamestop is not as good ad you think it would be. Matt worked their before me and got punched by a customer because they didn't have his shitty sports game.

And I'm not a lunk, I just take keeping my body under 110lbs very seriously.

a little update: I find it hilarious that it is hotter in coastal california (where im from) is at least ten degrees hotter than in nevada. Bad thing is weeds grow like crazy here, ive had to spend at least $20 in weed killer just for the back yard.

On the plus side, when its summer because im living alone now i can walk around in nothing but my bra and underwear without being chastised about how im not setting a good example for my cousin and whatnot. Bad news is she's coming to live with me during the summer so i that will kill some fun for me.

If it's actually cooler where you live, why would you walk around in underwear only?

i said during the summer. and while its cooler here thats not saying much when its high 70s low 80s and no ocean breeze to cool down the area. There is a small lake but it cant supply a cooling affect to the whole town just the area around that lakeside casino.

Oh is that what Games Workshop refers to? I assumed it was like a company-wide conference or something haha. Your explanation makes more sense.

For those of us who are uninitiated in the ways of the desert, can you point out what exactly we are supposed to be seeing in that picture?
