I Am A Neet Or Hikikomori Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 27 People

    I graduated in 2012. I thought about going to

    college, but I realized there's nothing good for me. I can draw, but I'm not good at it. And I didn't like school to begin with. I never payed attention or did well. I just went there for friends. I don't even know how I managed to graduate. So yeah. I don't have a job or school...
