My uni has been online. I live in the suburbs and there’s nothing for miles in my area. I have no friends. I’m very active mentally and at home but apart from the odd outdoor walk I never go anywhere but the local shop. Mostly because it’s so much effort to commute to the town and try to attend random things in the hope of meeting people from scratch. I gave up. But enjoy my own hobbies. Is that pathetic to hear if someone says they just don’t go anywhere much?

You need to find more activities that will look good on your CV; part-time job, mentoring, volunteering. How else will you develop transferrable skills that will make you attractive to an employer? You're going to have to make the effort to go out and find a job at some stage, so start making an effort to do more now.

So basically you can't be bothered. It is pathetic, stop being lazy and get off your arse. You have no hope of normal adult life especially with that attitude

I can see why you'd want to be anonymous.

I didn’t mention those things? Since you ask, I have had a part time job remote/online for most of the year whilst in full time study and am doing unpaid work until I land a new job

But what is bringing you to contact with other people for that part of future job applications?

Why do you need to attend things in order to meet people? Why can't you just go to events for the fact of attending them?

It’s mostly my remote location and fact that I don’t drive. I’ve been trying to take more lessons but all thru lockdowns instructors weren’t working. I would attend things for sake of enjoying it but I’m full on with the WFH things I have to do plus financially it’s not good. So it’s easier to stay at home and do all I can from there. But it’s isolating

I once didn’t leave the house for around a month and a half (before the lockdown) and it did me no harm.
