Well step one is to cut out the 8 hours where you're drunk. That will not only free up 8 whole hours, it will measurably improve your life in general. Alcohol fucks with your emotions, especially if you consume enough of it to be drunk 8 hours a day. You probably assume you need to drink alcohol to fall asleep but you probably don't sleep as well as you think you do. The remaining 8 hours you are awake you are likely experiencing mild alcohol withdrawal which contributes to your anxiety and your shitty mood. Trust me I know what I am talking about, I did what you are doing for several years before getting my shit together. It's a hard habit to break but once you break it you will be happier. If sleep is an issue without alcohol I recommend diphenhydramine tablets (same thing as Benadryl but don't buy the name brand, just look for the 25 mg allergy tablets, you can usually get a ton of them for cheap).

Once you're in a better state of mind focus on getting a job. Doesn't matter what it is, especially if you're young and live at home, just working and earning an income will improve your sense of self-worth. People often erroneously believe that the reason they don't get anything done is because they don't have enough time, but that's usually not the case. People with huge amounts of free time generally do what you're doing, which is to become paralyzed by anxiety about what should be done first and what tasks are most important, and they generally end up wasting most of their time anyway. When you have a job you will value your leisure hours more and use them more productively. Also don't stress out so much about what tasks are important. Try and just pick an activity you would like to do, pick a time when you're going to do it, and then only do that activity at that time. If you're going to cut anything else out of your day, cut out things like internet browsing and television if you watch any. Again though the main thing is to just not stress out about it too much, the weight of the world doesn't rest on your shoulders. If you can find work and generate a stable income for yourself you will already have risen above where you were previously, then if you want to take a day or two off every now and again to just vegetate and play video games or mindlessly browse the internet you will have earned it at that point.

Get out of the house. Start doing something that requires you to put your pants on and go out instead of wasting time in front of the computer. This works at least to some degree for me, I just can't seem to get moving and start doing things but when I'm already on my feet it's less of a problem.
Go for walks, join a club, take dance classes or whatever.

>When you have a job you will value your leisure hours more and use them more productively.
Or you'll be dead tired when you get home and still not get anything done. On the other hand, the paycheck doesn't hurt and it obviously ties in to the earlier point about getting out of the house.

I may be a coward in many ways but the least I can do is not bring sorrow to the few people in this world who love and care about me.
Lately however Ive been finding more strength in myself out of sheer desperation to keep going. I find that being redpilled isnt enough. And the knowledge will devour you from within if you cant find a way to apply it in a pragmatic way. My goal now is simply to be more /ub/. Get fit and read more.

The thing is, the same thoughts that are useful and viable in thinking moments are the thoughts that disrupt not-thinking moments, typically at least. This is the crux of finding which type of meditation works for you or (often more importantly) what you hope to gain/achieve by way of meditation.

So I feel I shouldn't be restricted to one language all my life and it wouldn't be a bad idea to have the ability to speak a different tongue to not only understand a new language but to also learn more about my own language as well. I've decided to learn Spanish since
>as an American its never a bad idea to know what the brown hordes are saying about you with you knowing
> Its the second most spoken language in the world, thus increasing the amount of people you can communicate with tenfold
> Its one of the easiest languages to learn if you are an english speaker from what I hear
> Its the language spoken by based as fuck Spaniards (back in the day they were based anyways, not so much today) who slaughtered muslim moors and conquered half of the new world for God, Glory, and Gold.

But how do I learn a second language? I did take a few Spanish classes in high school so I'm slightly familiar with it but whats the best way to learn? I hear things like rosetta stone barely does shit and the best way is to speak with a Spanish speaker however I have no contacts. I know playing vidya and reading media in Spanish will help me become familiar with the vocabulary but I would still be clueless on how sentence structure and advanced sort of things like that would work. What do you recommend?

Also this thread doesn't have to be limited to Spanish and can be about how to learn any second language in general.

So fag from post >>1015 here. I'm abandoning French. I don't know what it is but I have had the worst time with it. Maybe its because the pronunciation and there's all sorts of small shit to keep up that if you mess up, you risk making yourself look like an utter retard. Plus all the accents for letters trip me up alot with spelling, not to mention trying to remember that along with all the verb conjugations in tenses has been a mess for me.

>inb4 that's how romantic languages work

When I was learning Spanish in school, I had nowhere near as much difficulty with spelling, conjugation, and other stuff. Not to mention there is only one accent with spanish to keep up with which is a blessing for me.

So it leaves it to this. I have been looking at three languages I've been interested in and its this:
>Continuing learning Spanish
>Dutch
>Russian

Continuing Spanish is the most logical choice since I already am familiar with it though I'm still in beginner stages. Because of learning French , despite it being a failure, I am familiar with how conjugations work with Romantic languages so that should help alot. Dutch sounds funny but I have read how Dutch and English are very identical in alot of aspects making it easy for an English speaker to learn. Russian will be the hardest one to learn by far and the most time consuming but its the one I'm the most interested in and it looks cool as fuck. I haven't decided with what yet but if I pick one, I plan to stick with it and not bother with anything else so I must decide wisely.

If I were you I would learn a Slavic language like Polish, Czech or Russian.

I've been learning Polish for the past few weeks, and it's definitely a "What you see is what you get" type of language when it comes to pronunciation. So you'll really only have to worry about the conjugations and the accents, which are quite easy to get used to, but there are some exceptions. For instance to say 'You' in Polish, it's 'Ty', and the verb conjugation is for the most part 'sz'. But to say "you are" it's "ty jesteś". The 'ty' is usually optional too.

As you're most interested in Russian though, all the power to you.

Hi, I like doing this thing where I take games that can do this, and have the game's AI play matches against itself, while recording the whole match. While that's happening, I like to get reading and exercising done, so it still feels like I'm making progress as a youtuber as well. I can do commentary tracks later.

I think I need more games that can do this. So far, I'm just doing Civ V (torrented) and WWE 2k18 (torrented).

Reminder to cook a hot breakfast in the morning. It's not too expensive, buying bulk bacon, eggs, & sausage is good because you can piece freeze the meat so little to none goes to waste, as well as giving you insentive to wake up early to a hot breakfast. Modern cereals are full of processed sugars and HFCS, not to mention all the soy in them.
>but i dont have time to cook breakfast
Wake up earlier, if you already wake up as early as you can, then use multiple pans and cook multiple things at the same time
>good idea! I'm gonna go down to the shop and buy some pancake shake and waffle batte-
BAD! Wayyy too much processed shit in those, if you're gonna make them for breakfast (i personally never got the appeal but each to their own) you should once again make a big batch of batter and piece freeze it.

I admit that I'm too weak for most of the challenges on their site's screenshots. For instance, there was something about diving a distance underwater and pulling a 10-pound weight back up; my breathing habits while diving have always been bad and I've relied on holding my nostrils shut just to pull off diving underwater without my nostrils flooding like the basic bitch I am. I've tried overcoming that habit, especially this past summer, but I still can't submerge myself headfirst without nearly choking through the nostrils, let alone opening my eyes and seeing with these godawful eyes of mine. I think that as nice as this site is, it'll take a lot of work for me just to reach baseline 'strenuousness.'

I'll see about joining after I've lost another 15-25 pounds. This site does look great, I just think I'm too much of a soyboy to really get anything out of it. Plus I'd probably manage to fail that 12-week bootcamp.

How to relax?
I have the hunch that I really need relaxation.

Everything I do has something like a goal.
More sports, more reading, more learning, cook better food, eat slower for digestion, go for a walk because you need some daily excercise and you did sports yesterday and need some rest.
More better faster more and even relaxation is like something I have to do to a certain extend in a certain amount of time.
Even when I do something like watch a movie I study acting, writing, culture…

I am pretty sure that I am so stressed that I don't get anything done.

I think I figured something out.
I am stressed. Really fucking stressed.

I am stressed about not having an olypic medal and a nobel prize and humanity and myself and everything else and the very opposite of these things.

I am an illiterate fuck for not speaking 5 languages and not having 5 DoXs and being better build than Adonis. I am stressed out about me and all the others, about how things are and how things could be and how things shouldn't be and my perception of this and the meaning of thruth and every other fucking thing you could think of.
I have to do more in less time under harder cirmumstances than everybody else and if I get second place I get last place.
I gotta get burn-out and still deliver at least twice as much as the nr. 1 not only in the current time but in the entirety of human existance.

I can't sleep because of all the stress and when I fall asleepp it is through exhaustion which is a sign of weakness.

The only thigs that bring me solice are long baths and ponies but even then my mind wanders or I gotta study everything for the sake of story-telling or drawing or music or philosophy or anything else.

I had a thought today. I always thnk that it is a shame that we have to deal with the way things are insteat of what things could be like and I started to apply that thought to myself.
Normally I come here to try to become a somewhat decent human being, which means going from the bottom to the mid.
Today I had the very rare thought that I acutally might be not (always) as bad as I think.

Despite being overweigt I got an acceptablt body with an very good imune system and strenght.
Despite being a retard my IQ is his enough to get a masters degree.
Despite being socially inept I managed to make some good friends and get girls interested and become somewhat alpha in certain groups and even managed to shift some votes.
I can into arts and science and philosophy and crafts and IT and office and…

I am human waste but despite that I see the possibiblity to get something done.
What I am asking is how to unleash your potential?

>What I am asking is how to unleash your potential?
That is a good question, and I am first to admit I don't think I know the answer. I know what I would have liked to have done. But I am not sure if it would have been the right way to go either. So take what I write with a good healthy dose of skepticism. Also sorry for rant.

I don't think unleashing your full potential always is necessary. I think it is more important to be content (or happy if you are lucky) with life.

Lets say you are going to have kids. The most important I think is that you have time for them after work. Don't chase after a job that will stress you out, or wear you out. Try to find something that you never have to bring home. And I think most importantly that it is a bit varied so you don't do the same thing day in and day out, and that it is work that you can say is done and complete at one point. As an example a house is complete at one point, a web-server will always need monitoring updates ad infinitum.
Sure a house needs maintenance but it is varied maintenance and seldom time critical (sure roof can become leak, but nothing a tarp or bucket can't temporary fix and give you some extra time). A web-server that is compromised needs to be fixed ASAP and you can't leave until it is fixed. But as a house-builder you will not get calls asking why the house needs a new layer of paint after 10 years. You might get a call on a web-server on why twitter feed don't show up anymore because twitter chose to change their API a year later.

Sure hard work and late nights building your own business can pay of in the long run and grant you much more that if you choose to just be a worker raising your kids. So it is also something to keep in mind. Lots of work in start for potential big gain or an steady pace to retirement.

Reminder that if you don't go on a hike, backpack trip or climb a mountain every now and then you can never be /ub/. Bonus points for doing it miles away from a road.

Also post pics of places you've conquered if you do these things and anything related to outdoors survival/activities.

Your goal should be to climb Denali. First pic.

Ill just give some of my opinions on the things discussed to help resurrect the site.
>boots/footwear
Find what works for you. I rock shitty boots issued from basic training or my running shoes kek. Most guys hate the boots but they work for me and if im not going super far then I might just go with sneakers. In the past I would train my feet to be barefoot on runs and short hikes. Im gonna get back to doing this more. Tough feet are a really good asset, just gotta keep good footwear for cold or hot weather and sharp things or bugs. You can make your feet as tough as shoes.

>fires/cooking

Like previously stated many places do not allow fires. Ive been using a Coleman stove my brother got me for Christmas for when I cant make a fire. I love that thing. My father uses a military issue stove from the 70s still with no problems. Good equipment can last you forever. Another reason to have a stove is for when you are unable to start a fire due to environment and not just regulations. I learned this the hard way by going up a mountain under the rain the whole day. It was too damp to start a fire and got cold really fast. Thank god I had a tent and sleeping bag.

>water

I carry the little purification tablet you can buy at most cmaping stores in America. Idoine crystals are good to use too, not sure if they are sold as much anymore. I usually boil my water and purify it and I live in an area with pristine streams. If it is coming straight out of the mountain than I'll usually drink it as is.

I need a bigger backpack which can fit a tent and a sleeping back

If your backpack has straps you can strap them to the outside of the back (it is often more convenient this way rather than trying to stuff them inside the backpack).

This is good but if its raining you'll need a good poncho. Also I forgot to mention to always bring a poncho.

I've read Sword of Truth, I didn't really enjoy it. What does "Moral Clarity" actually mean? Because in the story it just seems to mean "He's the hero so he magically just knows what is right and wrong".

unironically already read this meme book and a Pokemon fanfic called Brave New World by Ri2 that was longer than it.

I read that one a long time ago and have forgotten of of it tbh. I cant say I would even enjoy it as much now. I do remember really liking some of the darker aspects such as the story behind sexually tortured guards women (I forget their name). Also I recall liking the first few books a lot more than the rest, he did get rather preachy as it went on.

Wow, that got a continuation? Not to mention the fact it finally was completed. That's cool, tbh. Was a cute story.

I've been wanting to learn how to draw for a long time, but have never gotten around to it because I simply do not know where to start. On a scale of 1-10 my skill level is basically a 1. I can draw basic shapes, that is about it. I don't have any hobbies right now other than gaming and working out, and I would like to pick something else up.

I would preferably like to learn how to draw on a computer, most of the really nice art I see seems to be done that way now a days. As I stated earlier, my skill level is basically 1. I can draw basic circles and have used MS paint a few times, and have never touch any editing programs.

I have been wanting to do this for forever, but have been held back because I just have no idea how to start, or what even I should be doing for practice. Right now would be a great time for me to do this because I am currently somewhat incapacitated with some medical issues. Any tips/resources would be greatly appreciated.

Learning how to draw anything is more important than learning how to draw one thing.
His guide is fine. Also anything worth having is worth working for. Art isn't just something you can shit out. There is a natural talent for it yes, but even the most gifted person will have to study at some point in their life.
For me, 2D art was always a pain in the ass. 3D art was always fun, even when I was shit at it. If learning sounds like a drag to you, maybe art isn't for you.

Touchscreens are expensive, anon. A cheap 80 dollar tablet can save you from buying paper/pens/etc, but it's a different feel from a screen/paper. You won't be able to see where you hand is in relation to what you're drawing. On the other hand, you don't have your hand blocking the screen.
If you get good at one, learning the other shouldn't be that hard though.
Even if you don't draw every day, try to read up or think about techniques for the next time you end up drawing. (This might not really apply to 2D, but it works for me with 3D)

In the end, if you have fun with drawing, nothing will stop you from doing it, just make sure you don't end up halting your own progress by never experimenting.

Couldn't be bothered to find it, but I have an image somewhere on this computer where an artist actually got WORSE over a period of 6 years.

I'm not good at drawing myself, but apparently I'm a very good teacher. I have helped many aspiring artists get started, so if you want help I'll be glad to offer some. We always need more artists for the fandom!

The very first word of advice I can give you is too just keep drawing! Practice is the key.
Don't stop; just keep trying and experimenting over and over, regardless of how shitty you may be. Try new things, and try them dozens of times. Experiment with concepts. Attempt to copy styles you admire once you get a hang of the basics.
Even little thumb sketches are progress. Make a habit out of doodling for fun. Carry a sketchbook as a hobby if you prefer. If you practice any skill enough times, you're bound to get half-decent at it.
And don't ever get discouraged just because you're bad at it. If you suck, that just means you're not practicing enough. Don't quit because your first thought after scribbling for 10 mintues is 'I'm not any good at this'.
