I need Advice. Should I go for minimum wage?Im at college because of family pressure. Tried software development, failed misserable cause im a brainlet. Now Im on graphic design and animation, but I dont give a shit about it, cause most of the classes are dumb fillers of pure theory (which I hate cause im a brainlet), I just want to work with my hands, not listen to an idiot all day. I didnt went to class today because its so boring, I hoped ritalin would help but it didnt. Now what? Is it okay to be a min wage slave? should I go for it? or should I sacrifice my mental health so I can draw as a job?

crueltyI just want to know a bit about wizards and cruelty
Are adult virgins THAT rare?Sometimes I feel like there's no adult virgins out there. No matter where I go, be it discord, various chans, forums and social media, I have yet to find someone around my age(28) that's a virgin.
Trying drugs (as a Wizard)Most would agree the biggest societal peer pressure is to lose your virginity, and have offspring. But what about the pressure of losing your drug virginity?

FetishesI know there are a lot of wizards that identify as asexual, and that got me curious. Do asexual wizards indulge in their own unique fetishes? Not to be confused with sexual kinks, fetishes are an uncontrollable turn-on that you didn't ask for. Of course, it's incredibly taboo, so much so that I don't think I've ever seen a thread on the topic. So, now that the ice is broken, what are your fetishes, /wiz/?
hikkis. are moral heroesThe Paralysis Argument
This is a rant, I'm tired of pretending suicide is wrongAs long as I can remember all I always wanted is to rest, give me a fucking break I'm 32 years old, yes. if I do it, it will likely shatter my mom, and be a blow to siblings, but why should I care? I know that seems heartless to ask and stupid, because I do care, but my point is, why should I bare all of this weight? Jesus fucking Christ, all I want when I go to sleep is to not wake up, yes I've done therapy, took medication and what not, it's not wrong, I'm not sick, I just don't see what the big deal of life is, everything is a distraction, an illusion to deviate you from the truth, you, me, and everyone else is a byproduct of exposure and environment. I'm not a lonely, angst teenager, I just don't want it, it's fine, there is people that likes life, I don't. I just don't see the point, and no, this is not about being a wiz, if anything, in many regards being a wiz, saved me of a lot of unnecessary headache.
I’m new here SorrySo can I please ask. I know everyone hates newbies but you all remind me a little of how people USED to be on 4chan and best case scenario you have none of what ruined the platform. Do you guys all actually practice magic, like any fucking kind or is it just a metaphor. Please tell me because I want to be included too
Smart phone addictionAnyone else hopelessly addicted to using smartphones? I hate it, I feel like it makes me dumber, it undoubtedly lowers my attention span and disturbs my sleep.
any wizards with schizoid personality disorder?after recently discovering that this disorder existed and just so happened to exactly describe the hell I've been living in. I began to wonder if any other wizards are suffering from this as well.
Your current opinionsWe have these threads every once in a while. What is your current worldview, philosophy, religion, opinions in general about life, etc? I think I'm not the only one around here who changes his worldviews or modifies them quite often.
NPC theoryThere was a thread about NPCs that was censored, but this is an interesting topic.
DrivingDo you have driver's license? What car do you drive? I got my driver's license 2 years ago, it was a terrible struggle to get it during a the Covid-shutdown, but it was one of the best decesions of my life. It really improved my situation and helped a lot with my depression, gave me massive freedom to be able to drive wherever/whenever I wanted to go, without my parents.
International legion, wizards at warWell wizards, this might be it for me.
Why do normal people want to have sex/ relationship with the opposite sexI don't understand this mindset, I've never looked at anyone and thought "I want to have sex with that person", neither have I thought that I want to be around some person just because they look attractive. I've always seen "crab" types talking about how they want some certain GF and I am just perplexed as to why? Like they will fawn over some person that they don't even know.
Squish GamesAvoid crowds at all costs. Avoid people in general. Treat normals and their gatherings as the death trap they are. See over 100 Koreans get crushed to death stampeding to a club to see a american celebrity. Stayed at home and comfy this holiday. Feels good.
If you could change anything your life what would it be?I am curious about the things you guys would change in your life if you could. I had a relatively shit start in life. Poverty, family drama. It left me fucked up. and even in my 20's and late teens I just felt old. I am in my 30's now and feel really old lol. I never got to go to college because I never had the time or money. I have just held down a series of low wage jobs. If I could change anything it would be to go to college and get a decent job.
Just realized some stuff related to my race, while drunkThird world tropical country. Both my parents are from a remote part of my country, most of my family lives there.
Moral luck theoryI see a lot of fucking normies here self shaming wizards and NEETS and blaming them for everything they are doing it is becoming assholes -chan not wiz chan .
Is living alone a lot of work? Is it worth it?It seems like it would be. I see a lot of people posting here about how they aspire to move out and live alone in their own house/apartment, but when I think about it that seems like it would be a whole heck of a lot of work.
Let's talk actual wizardryHas anyone here tried astral projection or similar? I've always been interested but never succeeded in it, I'm still looking for alternative methods that might work.
Nomad WizardologyIs the nomad experience up for consideration here?
Dead internet theoryits not just the internet
Are you ashamed of your nationality ?I am a slav from eastern europe so yes i hate being a 'slav', why couldn't i be born in a country with actual achievements like france, america, spain, italy or even korea
What do you guys think of reddit?Why does 4chan hates reddit so much? Sure 99% of the site is garbage but there's some good stuff in there once in a while (just like 4chan come to think of it). You can't even mention reddit without 5 posters telling you to "go back", it's really annoying.
politics in the age of social media is just retarded>eceleb uses a talking point from the alt media in public
clearing antipsychotic brainfogAny misters here have experience or knowledge of tapering off antipsychotics?
I just realized that drinking to get drunk is not worth itIt's a waste of time and money, it doesn't solve or help me with anything, it's a nice buzz, but too short lived.
Never gonna workI'm 35 and have never worked a day in my life. Nor do I intend to, despite being overly qualified. Spend my whole day playing old vidya and reading manga.
NPC TheoryWhat if everyone in the world as you know it is merely a soulless vessel which reflects that person from their reality?
Stagnant brainWhenever I roam the streets I feel some tickling idunnowhat inside me that keeps telling me that I have something clogged in my head I am not living up to. But I do not know if this is real or just a residual filth from that part of me I have been furiously rejecting due to it's resemblance to the cattle world.

EnlightenmentHere we shall discuss how to severe our attachments to this world and existence. Plus asceticism techniques, how to be enlightened in various ways and how to achieve inner peace. Stoicism, epicureanism and Buddhism or eastern religion experts are welcome, generally everyone whose aim is achieving ataraxia in some way.
Wizard internet communitiesI've been using english speaking internet sites since 11 years already, im 29. My main language is spanish, and to navigate english based internet was certainly an advantage. The problem is that i've became disappointed and tired with the english speaking crowd, its really difficult to find communities that are not conditioned by anglo culture, and all the things that encompasses (consumerism, ruthless competitiveness, hollywood-style pretentions, politics, virgin hate, etc).
What was your xp on college? Should I drop out?I know this site is for 30 year olds only, but thats why Im here, to ask you a very important question.
Making sense of wizardryOkay, so you're a wizard. What does that say about you?
what wiz-path should i go down?
PhilosophyAny1 here feels bad about how much time they wasted on philosophy, religions, or generally on seeking the "ultimate truth"? I can't take it seriously anymore. It seems to me like meaningless word-plays, all of it, politics, philosophy, everything. So much shit that doesn't have anything to do with my life, you know what I mean? Should have just read 07th expansion VNs or watched cartoons/movies instead of wasting my time on trying to become an intellectual or wise person.
Jeffery dahmer the warlockAnyone watched the netflix series and feel related to him lonely,no friends suck at education,military discharge, alcoholic, his family sucks, his fucking mom fucked him up with the poison pills she took.
Silence (and media in general)Any wizards experimented with extended periods of silence? I'm talking months and months of no music, podcasts, videos, etc.
How to cultivate the energy to fight inertia?I'm a soon to be ex-NEET and I have come to terms that, yes, there are things I want to achieve before dying, there are things I "deem" worth it, places I want to visit, things I want to learn and do.
The dog menaceA lot of wizards will likely get dogs to fight the loneliness. Please do not. Dogs are terrible creatures that regularly maul children. They are also noisy and disease-ridden. "A dog is a man's best friend" is just marketing from yhe pet industry to get you to waste money on an animal that only sees you as a food source.
IncarcerationAny of my fellow wizards ever been to jail? I've been charged with 2 DWIs in the last two months, no prior criminal history. I will probably be given a sentence of a few weeks or months in county jail unless the judge shows some leniency and sentences me to rehab instead. I have been to jail but not for more than a day at a time. What's an extended stay like? I will be a sheep amongst wolves, I am not violent or confrontational, and this jail is one of the most violent in the whole country. The predominant demographic in here seems to be Hispanic. I am Hispanic as well and speak fluent Spanish, so maybe I can make some buddies in there for protection.
ParentingGiven you have money and the kid isn't an infant and/or you still have a living parent with you would you adopt a kid if you had the ability to do so? Late stage wizardry on your own sounds terrifying. Do you think a wizard can be a good single dad for some orphan for at least a few years till he returns to solitude?
how does a wiz become a neet?been working for a couple years now in manual labor and feel like shit all the time because of it. couldnt care less if i get paid well my health is invaluable compared to work. How can a wiz manage to live without having to work? or at the very least work as little as possible in a job with little to no stress? welfare? office job?
The fear of learning magic is often more difficult then learning magic itselfAnd no this is not only me, I've talked with a lot of magic practitioners and warlocks in the past, this seems to be a recurrent theme that is hard to admit. A lot of us procrastinate copious amounts of times, when most of the time all you have to do is take the spell or craft and start using it… No amount of book procrastinating will ever replace the practical side of magic. I get angry with myself often because of this. Why all of this irrational fear? All you really have to do is to practice magic to get good at magic.(And disregard female (it goes without saying it)).
just something i wanted to saySexually I still get erections ( I don't watch porn btw), I have a libido but I don't care for sex. But romantically… I just feel fine being alone. Like maybe it's all these years being alone made me like this but this is just how I am. I have no romantically interests whatsoever. I feel completely fine with my own company.And I feel like I never see people like me out there at all.
Stress ManagementHow do you guys handle your stress? Every time something new happens in my life and fucks up my routine I end up making costly mistakes such as breaking something expensive or almost getting fired from my job. It's been this way since I was a teenager and I'm in my 30s now. It's annoying because it ends up being a subconscious thing too. All it takes is for one major change to happen and boom, I ultimately fuck something up that I would never even imagine being able to fuck up.
TruthWe were rejected by society
School education and real intelligenceIt's horrible to see how everyone fawns over-educated academics and their titles, thinking education means one is intelligent, mature and wise.I got to know a professor of literature on /lit/ and he was just your basic, entitled, tantruming 4chan poster with little insight on human life beyond his own experience. This opened my eyes.Doctors are the worst. They worship succubi and get all the glory in society, but the hidden truth is that med students are the biggest party animals and worst turbo normies. They enroll in med school to get status money and pussy. That pretty much says all about their character. Smarter people choose math and physics. But not even a degree in physics guarantees you're an actual seeker of truth. I'm actually an ex physics student so please take that into consideration before you think it's clever to mention Dunning-Kruger.
Downloading information into your brainI have a theory. I think it might be possible to put myself in a suggestive/hypnotic state, in a dark room with only a computer screen and headphones on my ears. I play some kind of educational or informational video, and just let it go into my ears without thinking about anything at all.
You are no better than the people you critiziseAmong normal people you have to fit certain criteria to fit in. You have to be outgoing, you have to dress and look a certain way, you have to be happy, etc. Among imageboard loser crowds you have to have been browsing these sites since the beginning, you have to be into and knowledgeable about anime, computers and videogames, you have to use linux, you have to be into obscure media and music, you have to be into breakcore. Of course you don't have to fit all the criteria and what makes someone cool changes slightly from person to person, but you're given a subconscious score based on these things. It's a different social hierarchy, one that attempts to be the opposite of the mainstream one, but it's the same old system. I'm a boring person who browses discord servers and youtube all day on his windows laptop. I use discord, but only talk to 1 person in dms and then make a couple of posts in 2 servers once every couple of days. I'm not knowledgeable about any type of media either. I like anime succubus images, but don't watch much anime. This means I'm a "normalfag" here and a "loser" in the outside world. I wish there was a community that accepted you regardless of what you're like, but that goes against human nature.
Question for my fellow shut-insDo you ever wonder what it will be like to get old, I mean truly old, and never have a lifetime of experiences to look back on and reminisce about? If you end up in some old folks home and some person asks you about your life, what will you have to tell them? Some old childhood stories so dusty and decrepit you can barely remember them? You could talk about what your opinions about the world are, based on what you've read, but when it comes to talking about how you actually impacted the world or influenced it? What will you have to say? What good is having opinions on stuff if it never leads to any sort of actionable outcome?
