Wow! Did you go to university ?

Do you intend on being a long term NEET ?

Wasn't for me, I spent most of my time partying and having fun but that is because I have never been academic. I enjoyed university life, not studying.

Think of your parents never ending condemnation, coupled with a depression that slowly turns into giddy madness as you realise that the demands people make of you to be "more confident" are completely contradictory to the notion that you should listen to them!!

I still learnt things though. I just didn't study very hard. It is a pretty expensive party.

I ****ing hate it. You'd think it;s great but you lose sense of time. Days don't mean anything anymore, neither does time. I often feel like I ****ed my life up. Watching movies and playing games all day get's boring really fast.

I guess you could say that I am a NEET at the moment... Not by choice and I do have the possibility of a job waiting for me (medical leave from a minimum wage job). Not the first time that I have been a NEET before either. Honestly it is a mixture of heaven and hell (sorry for the religious terms). The heaven is because of the perception that you can do what you want when you want and that you are free from obligations and responsibility. In reality it's closer to hell. You can't seem to do everything that you want to do in a day (the days seem to get shorter and bleed into one another so that you are just in one really long day) and because you have "all the time in the world" you don't seem to be able to do things exactly when you want either. The longer you stay a NEET the more the pressures and responsibilities of life weigh you down until they become more than you had when you weren't a NEET (money, shelter, food, society expectations, social ostracism, the pressures of family and friends, guilt, sense of failure, and a growing need to escape it all). The situation becomes a cycle feeding on itself until something snaps and you do something about it (getting a job - hopefully).

It sucks, but in my area at least it's entirely optional for able bodied people. The unskilled jobs I've had are constantly hiring (I know because I sometimes get emails or texts), but very few British people actually take the jobs.
