    Those are YOUR stereotypes. The stereotypes I usually hear are we are on benefits, which I'm not. Could make up many stereotypes for the unemployed I guess since they are looked down upon so much.

    Love how you bolded lifting weights as if that's a bad thing to be doing.
    I don't look down on unemployed people. I am skeptical of the people who;
    Spend all their benefits money on gambling and booze, or even if off benefits spend it on such things. They aren't helping themselves.

    2) mention how they have a routine sorted for weights and gaming but no mention whatsoever of how the will add to their cv or increase their job prospects.

    Looking down on people who are unemployed? I don't at all. They could be dairy farmers, steel workers, young people having a tough time.

    Pretend you are left wing on a student forum to hide the fact that you are really a right wing moron.
    However, I'm not the only person who doubts your authenticity on this matter. Not that you will care, nor should you, just stating my view.

    I literally said I don't ask for or get benefits? What are you talking about? You know people save money from previous jobs right? I don't have benefits money. I was on JSA for about a month once about a year ago and will never do it again. I'm not allowed to spend my money how I please now is basically what you're saying?

    Also I assume it's common knowledge from the OP when I'm stressed about the situation enough that I'd be looking for jobs.... I have an interview on Thursday ffs. Not to mention I said I'm starting evening classes in January and learning as many programming languages as I can.

    You HAVE the stereotypes, don't quote some other troll to back you up. Even when I clearly said I don't get benefits you replied to those exact words and assumed I did.

    Look for jobs
    Apply for jobs
    Look for voluntary work if you can afford to do it
    Work on self-improvement in whatever sphere you like (health,fitness, education, personal qualities etc) - I used to go jogging
    Do things you enjoy which are also productive so that you don't feel useless (e.g. cooking, drawing etc)

    Well that depends on what you want to do with your life. Like if someone wants to be a programmer they could start learning programming, if someon wants to take a language degree they could start learning a language, etc..

    Yesterday: Masturbated 4 times, gonna try and rest my penis for a day or two (maybe go clubbing on Fri/Sat and get a girl with a fully refreshed accessory). Won £150 on NBA betting. Watched V for Vendetta and the new Ronaldo film. Started to re-learn basic Java (haven't done it in about 3 years). Got a chippy, drank three protein shakes.

    Today: Just got myself a 12 pack of Carling but it tastes terrible, God how do people drink this crap? Also went to Tesco but Black Ops 3 was sold out for PS4, too late to go to the city centre now so might download it. Got a subway, will later get Dominos. Currently listening to 80s music.

    Supposedly I got an interview with the Royal Mail on Thursday (I was notified today through e-mail). They said to bring what I got in my confirmation e-mail, but I never received a confirmation e-mail. I phoned them last Friday after they tried to get in contact with me after I done the application online and they said they would send me a confirmation e-mail for an interview but I never got one.

    I've looked into all the philosophy shabazz and decided I'm a nihilist but tend not to dwell on it. Also learning how to cook sounds like a good idea, seems like I can't put on much weight even when I eat takeaways everyday and drink lots of alcohol.

    God I'm bored. I hope I feel better after I get through this first can.
    Did you finally go to the interview? How was it?

    No, I just received the e-mail at about 4pm earlier. The interview is on Thursday morning. I actually want to do hands on crappy work for once rather than stressing myself out on a computer all day.
