Welcome to /hikki/ a place for reclusive adolescents or adults who withdraw from society.

What is allowed on this board? What is its purpose?

On this board you can discuss and request or give advice regarding the Hikikomori lifestyle anxieties and social or mental issues arising from these conditions of living and also post general hikikomori discussion If you're content with being a hikikomori that's ok, and you won't get in trouble for saying so.

What is not allowed on this board?.

Rule 1. Please do not encourage anyone to become a hikikomori

Rule 2. Do not bully or harass someone simply for being a hikikomori

Rule 3. Keep trolling to a minimum (No flames)

Rule 4. Do not help others to plan or commit suicide suicide threads are fine but it is better to give advice rather than to lead the person on.

Rule 5. No topics not related to this board please take your religion and politics elsewhere this board is a support community for English speaking hikikomori to help each other out of their bedrooms

Rule 6. Encouraging any kind of drug use

Rule 7. Giving or requesting advice on how to become a hikikomori

Rule 8. No Shitposting please be respectful and be genuine with your post /hikki/ is a slow traffic board for true hikikomoris to have a place to talk and nothing more.

Rule 9. Always check the catalog before creating a new thread, do not create a new thread asking for things that simply don't deserve a whole new thread dedicated to them and please remember to keep certain discussions in their containment threads

Rule 10. You must be a hikikomori or have been a hikikomori to post here

The term Hikikomori ひきこもり or 引きこもり is a Japanese word that when translated into English it means “pulling inward, being confined”,acute social withdrawal “) in context of a person the term refers to a shut-in who stays home and does not leave their room for very long periods usually for about 6 months or more.


Hikikomori is a social condition in which the affected individual isolates themselves away from society at home in their parents house in their room for a period exceeding six months . The Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare of Japan defines hikikomori as a condition in which the affected individuals refuse to leave their parents' house, and isolate themselves away from society and their family in their bedrooms for a period exceeding six months but is not directly caused by a physical condition or other psychological problem.


Most hikikomori are neets and are supported by their parents or get money from the government however if you work or take classes online at home while still not going outside you are still a hikikomori but not a neet and a neet isn’t necessarily a hikikomori nor vice versa. You could be a hikikomori neet. But if you are a neet that does spend a moderate amount of time outside your house you are still a neet but you are not a hikikomori


Yes and no contrary to popular belief most hikikomori actually do go outside for example to buy food but are still completely isolated socially and spend nearly everyday or almost everyday at home in their rooms however some hikikomori live in extreme conditions and never leave the house at all.

I am surprised we haven't had a thread about this topic yet and didn't have one earlier when the board was first created. What are your guys thoughts on the people on other imageboards and social media who self identify as hikikomori or proudly call themselves hikikomori despite the fact that they don't fit the Japanese definition leave their homes to go to school and a job and have social interactions outside the home willingly on a regular bases? Personally i think these people are just attention seeking and are not actually suffering with an actual mental disorder caused by social factors which is what hikikomori actually is there is a huge difference between someone who is an actual hikikomori and someone who watched Welcome To The NHk or Hikikomori Loveless and thought it was a cool lifestyle choice.

>Can autistic people never be hikikomoris? That would be kinda funny.

Not exactly true in-fact some researchers have suggested that hikikomori suffers may be affected by autism spectrum disorders and other disorders which may affect social integration.

> To me it just sounds like some idiots in Japan think that being a hikikomori has no cause at all. That people are isolating themselves for no reason. That's probably where this confusion comes from, just a lack of understanding the issue

They mainly are only excluding schizophrenics people in a depressive state for only a short period like 3 months or less retired old people people who have physical issues like a broken leg and can not leave home for that reason housewives people who just like to stay home but while they are at home they do house chores take care of their kids and other normalfag stuff and people who work from home but still leave to go to the office Japanese researchers do not consider these types of people to be hikikomori not every recluse in Japan is called a hikikomori and Japan has their own words for recluse and hermit 世捨て人 is recluse and 隠者 is hermit and as far as the psychological problem issue it doesn't mean that hikikomori aren't mentally ill at all of course not what they actually mean is that another disorder can not be the direct cause or only cause behind the isolation because hikikomori has not one single cause like other disorders hikikomori is different from other types of isolation such as agoraphobia schizophrenia or social phobias and usually mainly the result of the social pressure of being unable to keep a a public face within society along with stress/pressure from a job or school bullying having no friends or social connections and other psychological issues like autism or depression that may or may not play a role in the persons withdrawal it is very complex and hard to fully understand because every case of hikikomori is different in some way and a 2007 study separated hikikomori suffers into 2 categories Primary hikikomori and hikikomoriPost too long.

I actually agree with you that is why i hate r/hikikomori and r/neet too many kids think they are neet because they are on a 3 month summer vaction away from school or think they are hikikomori even though they still leave to go to work or school they are retarded.

Many japanese hikikomori who've described their neuroses and gone in depth about why they are the way they are could be seen as exhibiting some of the hypersensitivity symptoms associated with the autism spectrum. That doesn't really mean anything though because you could theoretically fit the bill for a whole sea of disorders without actually having any of them, this is why improving awareness of hikikomori and getting to better understand the japanese who are afflicted with it is so important.

A woman was found collapsed on a street in Hakata Ward, Fukuoka City, after being stabbed, on Friday. A passerby called 119 just after 5 p.m. to report a woman was lying on the street, bleeding. When police and an ambulance arrived, the woman, who is in her 40s, told them her brother had stabbed her in the chest with a knife and attacked their mother, Fuji TV reported. She was able to tell police that her son was a hikikomori (recluse) and that they had quarreled over his refusal to change his way of life and find a job. Another resident in the apartment building told police she had only seen the man once in 10 years.

I feel like I'm the biggest loser on the planet. In my life I met many shy people that had trouble socializing but no one was ever even close to being on my level. I may not be the person with the most social anxiety on the planet but it wouldn't surprise me if I was in the top 100. I'm so awkward I can't even interact with my mother or my other family members. suicide might be a pussy move when there's a chance that your life will get better, but when you're like me it's the only reasonable thing to do. I don't know what comes after this life but if there's an hell I'm not afraid of going there. I doubt it could be much more painful than my current existence. At least there only god would judge me. I wouldn't have to deal with my family's stares and their opinions about me. I wouldn't have to deal with the shame that is my existence.

>I have a solid identity because I have a vague understanding of who I am (and an even vaguer understanding of why I ended up this way) and what I want

in my experience your desire is you. what you want is the keystone to identity. OP ask yourself what it is you want for yourself, and what it is you can reasonably expect for yourself.

Knowing what you don't want is just as important. You are what you like and what you dislike, so doing more things tends to improve your understanding of yourself. Your identity is defined by your reaction to everything else that exists. Discovering yourself and having a solid identity makes suicide that much more difficult, because you just have more to care about, and it's just harder to let the things that you hate win so easily and so early. Of course, it's unlikely that this will reverse anyone's situation. If you are someone that doesn't get along with society, that's unlikely to change. It's just part of who you are, even if you don't know why yet. If society happens to be your eternal enemy, I guess all you can do is find ways to deal with that (well, I will worry about that when I'm absolutely fucked, because I still have a hard time caring about myself enough to do anything against a threat that isn't immediate, and besides, worrying about the future was killing me, so I decided to stop doing it, and this is the downside of that decision). It's not something easy to deal with, but denying the truth is definitely worse. Also, whenever I think that I understand myself, I'm always wrong. Something else just makes me realize that I'm not even close. Happens all the time. Maybe this never ends. That would make sense. But I guess I'm also just a confusing mess. Well, it gives me something to do. Can't complain about it too much.

Sometimes you just get born into a crazy, evil family through no fault of your own. They were fucked up even before you were born, and none of it was your fault. They deliberately try to destroy your self-esteem to stimulate themselves and to maintain control over you. You don't have to feel bad about yourself because of people like that, and it definitely doesn't mean that you will never be able to interact with healthy people.

Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 1. Read all of the translated books a while ago (well, at least what I found on libgen), and now I have another reason to learn Japanese. Highly recommended, but skip the recent anime adaptation, because that was a disappointment. Phantom is good, though, but read the books first. I actually wrote quite a lot about them, because it's what I do when I read pretty much anything. Really helped me see all the connections. Now I just have to stop procrastinating, finish everything I'm watching, and get back to learning Japanese. There is a lot of stuff that I don't remember, but Japanese the Manga Way should help with that. Kind of a pain, but I have to stop reading translations. Avoiding subtitles is probably a good idea as well, and it gives me an excuse to rewatch a lot of things. I have way too many other things to learn, so hopefully it won't take long to become part of my routine.

Sinking my teeth into The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (with both DLC). It's been a pretty long time since I last consistenly played a video game, so it's a bit weird to get used to this again, but I'm enjoying it. I'm not sure what my goal is though. Maybe 100% the achievements? That still leaves me with 200 achievements to go. I don't think I really need a goal though. I'm having a decent amount of fun just playing it as is right now.

This is gonna be a blogpost, but bear with me because it's videogame related.

PSP GO anon here, sorry for not posting the pictures i said i would, but my phone's camera is garbage, please understand that my 2016 moto G is a $100 budget phone and i only own it because my parents wanted to keep in contact with me, even though i'm inside the house 100% of the time, and this thing was the cheapest, most reliable phone i could find at the time (i did not want them to spend $1000 on a gay iphone piece of shit i wasn't going to use).

Anyway, i bought a Vita two weeks after i got the PSP. I received a bit of money (plus other stuff) for my birthday and i decided i wanted to play some atelier and neptunia on my bed. I managed to find a premodded OLED model with original charger, 32GB SD card, a 3.0 SD2Vita, a 4GB memory card and acrylic case for $145, no box but who cares, it's not new anyway. It proved to be an excellent purchase, everything my PSP did this thing does better.

Since i ended up using the PSP less and less i somehow left the charger on my pants and when mom washed them it got ruined, so i tried charging it with the Vita's brick (solely to transfer saves, this thing does not have a SD card) because it had the same voltage and a quick google search told me it was compatible. What an horrible mistake, the PSP turned on by itself and it felt extremely hot from the back, so i opened it and the battery was swollen, i panicked and removed it as fast as i could. I ended up ruining the R trigger in the process (broke the ribbon cable), fixing it would set me back around $40 and i'd rather fix my old 3000 model instead so that's effectively $80 dollars down the drain. I knew i should have bought the clear blue 2DS instead.

The refurbished O3DS i've had since 2013 ended up dying that same week, i was playing pokemon and wanted to take a piss, so i put it in sleep mode and when i came back i wasn't able to turn it on again. I reseated the battery, removed it and ran power directly from the charger, opened it and cleaned the internals. Nothing worked, so i left it in a drawer for roughly 5 months. A couple days ago i was reading something on gamefaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Fun game. I wanted the achievements originally, but I never bothered getting everything. There are just too many of them, and I don't like having to look up how to get things in games. I played the challenges, kinda mastered the game and then stopped. Maybe because I reinstalled Linux on that PC and never reinstalled Steam. For some reason the game makes my fucked up Windows 7 machine blow up, freezes everything and gives me a BSOD, or something like that, so I never played it on that. It gets to the menu and then everything goes horribly wrong. Even on a fresh install, for some reason this computer just hates that game, though I have been having random issues with it for a while, since the previous HDD died.

It was a better experience than playing the original game, though. Maybe the item combinations are just more ridiculous in this one, or maybe I just got luckier. I happened to find a screenshot of one of the early good runs, with some insanely huge fireballs, so I decided to talk about it. I don't have the seed, unfortunately. It was ridiculously overpowered. The crazy item combinations make this game. Really fun. I should play it more, actually.

I should play Touhou more. Maybe I can 1cc normal before I die (I think I got pretty close, because Touhou is actually pretty fair), that would be nice. Shmups in general are my weakness, because I never play them enough. Your computer is fine. You can run most emulators and some old PC games. Way better than whatever I had in the late 90s to run Nesticle and ZSNES a little later. Play NES Batman, Bubble Bobble, Secret of Mana, Pocky & Rocky, Super Puyo Puyo, Mega Turrican and Revenge of Shinobi, Summon Night: Swordcraft Story, Duke Nukem 3D, maybe Diablo (it doesn't run properly on 7, but it does on XP). All of them randomly chosen by my brain, so it's obviously the best thing to do. Maybe I should actually make a giant list of games and let a randomizer choose what I play, that could be fun. If you want games to play, you can always watch Game Center CX. That always helps. You should do that anyway if you haven't.

Any anon here figure out a way to make some money without going out to your house? I tried looking for a job but I'm only qualified for a service industry which required a lot of interacting with peoples (I did worked for 3 months but I quit because I couldn't get along with my co-workers and having trouble talking to customer). I'm not asking much in term of payment, just enough to pay the bills and food. I live with my parents, I dont have any student debt or car's loan, I'm happy if I could make $500 a month just from the comfort of my bedroom.

>I wanna do art commissions and patreon stuff

I want to do this as well, but at the same time I don't. I used to draw a lot when I was a kid and in my teens, but for the past 10 years I've hardly done it at all. I want to go back to drawing again, but I have no imagination, no energy and no motivation.

And when you look at artists on patreon and see people who draw porn and furry shit are the ones that earn the big bucks. Not anything I want to do, I just want to draw whatever I feel like drawing and only for myself, I don't want any attention or recognition.


Though I've thought about just LARPing as an "artist" and churning out shitty porn and fur for the degenerate retards, but I don't know.


I have a monthly tugboat that I need to fight for every time it stops coming. It's a low sum and it isn't permanent since I've never been properly diagnosed, not that I want or care to, but I was forced to go after dropping out of school. Only been told that maybe I'm this, maybe I'm that. I've been in and out from the shrinks since 2010-11 and not a single one of them has come to a conclusion nor even cared, and I've even been told to my face that niggers and women are top priority. Really hard to get on neetbux or even food coupons here if you're a fucking white male. Not really worth jumping through all hoops and humiliating yourself for chump change that takes you nowhere though, but what can you do.

About actual work you can do from home, I guess there's always programming. I actually had the opportunity to learn programming for a year in school, but the teacher was a fat disgusting creep who couldn't keep his hands off, so I stopped going there almost immediately. And now I'm too retarded to able to learn anything.

Due to Estrogen, women seem to be a lot better at tolerating the sort of psychological kettling that you see in groups of female friends where they will dis each-other and aggro on anything taboo relentlessly. In contrast to men, physical aggression seems to be a simpler and more complete solution to this sort of environment. If a man is having a choice of a prolonged conflict that does not challenge their body (physical harm) or take a physical risk and avoid psychological harm, the risk of physical harm will be taken every time.

When you look at sex differences more generally coupled with the hikikomori problem, you observe a complete abuse of male sex differences. The psychological needs of males are completely neglected systemically over the course of childhood and adolescences. In Hikikomori Adolescence Without End it is stated, Hikikomori are more likely to come from middle class, wealthier, educated homes. This trend started in the Boom Economy in Japan and the trend has carried since. This is relevant because you are seeing older parents this model. Parents instinctively have to over-natalize (excessively care for and shelter) because they don't have the option to procreate again and therefore will see the child as made of glass and want to rap it in bubble-rap. Metaphor aside, Hikikomori can be frighteningly summarised as men not being able to develop their

Eh, being/become a girl isn't some guarantee to getting a typical girl personality type. Unless you're absolutely sure all your issues are mainly because of your looks, confirmed by whether you'd also do well in life if only you looked like a chad or whatever, then sure perhaps.

But if it's your personality, trauma, PD's that cause your issues.. You'll just be a female hiki instead then. You won't gain social skills or a personality that takes human interaction any better or is more confident.

If you want to avoid attention, it's much easier to do so if you're a man. And women have their own unique reasons to be paranoid and insecure. Female bodies also come with their own issues. Grass is greener on the other side because people tend to expose the advantages of being in their own situations, but hide the real downsides, or completely misunderstand them. Women are also glorified way too much, though this doesn't really help them in the end. Their lives will only become more miserable, thanks to this. No one is a winner here. The biggest real advantage is that abnormal women have a lot more value in a way, because they are so uncommon, and scarcity always makes something seem more valuable. Women tend to be average. Men tend to be more experimental, so you get a wider range of results. In general, there is a lot more demand for weird women, just because normalfag men are so thirsty for female attention that they have pretty much no standards beyond appearance (and even those standards are very artificial, in my mind), so it doesn't make a difference, and weird men are considerably more common, and a lot of them want compatible women, so the demand is higher than the supply. A lot of traits that are considered negative by society (because they are associated with men), are actually things that some men want in women, even if they don't realize that, and those traits become valuable just because they are not as common. Also women are benefited financially, since anything that they do is more likely to be successful just because men are so thirsty, that is the biggest real advantage.

Honestly, being human is just shit in general, so maybe there isn't that much of a difference. Trannies are definitely in a worse position than either of them, though. That is just a huge mistake, a result of masculinity being demonized (and femininity in men being demonized as well, leading to certain men wanting to actually become women, so they can actually accept those traits), and men being unable to find what they want externally, and resorting to trying to becomePost too long.

Well luckily I don't think as many people are buying into the delusion as shitholes like twitter would like you to believe. The mass censorship blanket that get's thrown over any critical discussion of tranny shit pretty much says it all.

so what about making a thread under the topic of the day routine

can I start my fellow hikkis, the one true fact which we all share it together is that we have no sense of time or even the days all the days we live is one day repeat itself over and over for months now

my day starts with

>eat some junk filthy food or whatsoever I'm going to find in the fridge

>take a shit, and a shower only if I felt like wanting it

siting on my lap, before I sitting while I'm on the path I keep on telling myself that I will do something positive today, but eventually it turning out to be hours of surfing on image boards instead of learning a little of the language as I decided, watching anime might be the only positive thing since I watching it dubbed and subed into the language which I want to learn as well as surfing on imageboards in fact I'm able to write this thread due to my months of lurking here and there due to the language which I want and wish to start learning is English

>fabbing more than 3-4 times

>eat something

>sleep at at least 3pm and wake up again 12Am and repeat

If you want some help in your hobbies such as if you somehow want to start some thing but you struggling as me to know where and how to start you can ask about it here and wish the other hikkis help you including me as well they might give me some tips in order to help me improve this language, though since they're natives I will go fuck myself somewhere I'm pretty sure, also how can I know my level?

.Get up around noon

.make coffee

.Browse for about 20 minutes and think about what I need to get done today (I do 2D animation so I either have to draw new keyframes in sketchbook or do in-betweens)

.Work on animations for around 1&1/2 hour

.Eat while watching something on Youtube

.Distracted animation work for another 2 hours

.Take break/eat while watching Youtube

.Either assess that I can't get any more meaningful work done today, eat and go to bed


.Last hour of work, eat and go to bed

I'm trying to make this an every day thing but there's some days where there's zero motivation whatsoever

Hiki doesn't mean all sugar. There is sugar in bread and milk and most plants are basically just one big sugar. I suspect Hekki means cut out table sugar, like the kind you put in tea or coffee and some times sprinkle on cereal. Also include sugar in manufactured foods like soda and candy. Just think of how hekki feel now the same way x-smokers think about cigarettes; they really don't like them.

That said, I can recommend cutting out table sugar. It really makes a difference, even if your not overweight to start with.

>usually just watch videos/anime

>shower every day or every two days because i don't like feeling dirty

I sleep whenever im tired and sometimes when im depressed that can be sleep 8 hours, stay awake 8 hours and then sleep again. Can barely function unless i've slept a full 8 hours.

Usually spend all day watching streams of people playing games as it gives me some sense of company and I don't have the energy to play them myself

I know most of the users on here don't want to change and some are happy and content with being a hikikomori but i have a question for those who are recovering hikkis what are you doing to fix your situation?? and do you think you will succeed in the outside world or just go back to being a hikki again??.

Also question for other current hikkis have you ever tried to reintegrate back into society??. I've tried many times in the past but was always met with hostility so i gave up on even trying.

I still think about you guys even if I stopped posting since I am no longer a hikki having joined the work force.

I believe I have successfully reintegrated society.

No I'm really flattered. I agree, it's nice to have a concise document that isn't too fruity. Though at the same time is a real document.

Off topic, I actually use pandoc (https://pandoc.org/) to convert a markdown file to PDF. Pandoc does this with Latex, so that's why the PDF looks so posh.

I get a little over $1200 dollars a month through disability, as a result of crippling autism/depression, some of which I hammed up a bit for the sake of the diagnosis (not to say I'm not Mr. Autismo Supreme 99% time, but still). It was late 2012 when I was approved and the bux have been flowing in ever since. I'd consider myself lucky since I was only denied once, and that was before I got a confirmed diagnosis from both my family doctor & a local shrink, and never had to resort to a lawyer/challenging a bad ruling, as I've heard some others have been forced to do. I've never been bothered by anybody and, assuming social services never go away in this country, am essentially on it for life, no questions asked.

How did you “play” it up I’m curious?

15cc9d  No.7100


Avoiding eye contact, strongly accentuating my anxiety by taking overt deep breaths and needing to physically stand up from my seat every now again, being very vague & tense with my body language in general, being as stupid, clumsy & incompetent as possible when it came to any testing involved, which itself was basically limited to just a single IQ & personality test filled with random logic, visual, & auditory problems to solve that, granted, I would've done pretty badly on either way. I can recall on how one section asked me to describe my favorite hobbies/past times and I just wrote in big crayon letters how I "liked Chrono Trigger because it has nice characters & a good story". When I was asked to expand on that, I just shook my head and said "No, sorry. I can't.". Hilarity being that I'd never even fucking played Chrono Trigger and still haven't, in fact. Just seemed like a good autistic thing to write at the time to, again, ham it up a little. Maybe none of it made any difference in the end, but enh. Who can say. Still couldn't hurt to keep in mind for other prospective hermits seeking disability, though. Every little bit helps.

Funny story and thanks for sharing. I'm a bit worried about the Chrono Trigger part because it's a detail that could give your identity away and put your autism bux in peril.

I dont really desire anything anymore besides not starving or being tortured to death and i basically have those two. i feel like im jus being endlessly entertained with no stop and its so boring and makes me sick and i feel like i have to do something worthwhile.. but i dont have a reason to is what Im saying, say i exercise to stay healthy, eat good, talk to friends, maybe volunteer to help some people (feels kind of masochistic in a way wanting to work but thats beside the point kinda), write a screenplay, even get a gf to fuck everyday, i think id still feel like im missing something in life

I feel the same way, anon. I mean I'll still eat till I'm full and listen to music and shit, but I don't really find it fulfilling or really that enjoyable. And all that shit I don't have, all that shit i desired for so long, a lover, friends, a healthy body, a "dream" job, and all that shit seems like just even more work which would be neither fulfilling nor enjoyable. It's just a feeling of "So, this is really all there is to life." that I've been getting lately. I just can't fathom the attraction.

I was always reclusive as I could not connect deeply with any clique.

i can talk to and generally get along with anyone from any background but i can never truly feel at home or "one of and the same as" any particular circle. i am both too autistic and not autistic enough. i prefer to stay to myself and even find making online friends tedious and generally not worth it as these days your life can be made complicated just as easily online as offline.

I was pretty much a normal slightly anti-social kid up until i was 11 when i just decided to stop going to school. I would always make myself puke or scream and cry about how my back hurt. I wasn't bullied and i had "friends" at school although i never talked to them or hung out with them outside of it.


This very accurately describes what i was like before becoming a hikki.

I think I was always this way. I didn't always know there was a word for it. To put it into a sentence wouldn't work; too much semantic.

The moment you are born you are dead. Depressed people are conscious of dying the way time-loads can feel the plant spin.



Horrible that's why I'm hikki.


I was always and just didn't know it yet. Like waiting to be a lion's dinner. You are already as good as in it's stomach, but you don't know it yet because time splits up all the superpositions otherwise everyone would always be the human centipede; a direction-ed blur.

I wasn't always a hikikomri, and I wasn't always so reclusive and unsociable. A little over a decade and half ago, I was a pretty normal guy, and I lived a very active and social lifestyle before it all went to shit.

childhood. parents took me out of public school in the first grade because i'd throw a tantrum every morning crying and begging not to go. I don't have any memory of this.They put me in private tutoring with a 3 other students. I also was very slow to learn language, i do have memory of this.

middle school. back to public school. i went to school no problem, but i got bullied relentlessly. I had a friend or two that we would go to each others houses after school and play video games. My grades were very poor.

high school. i struggled to go to school. I constantly took days off and didn't attend class. Despite this i graduated with perfect grades. A friend or two i would talk to during school, but never after class.

college. i stopped going to class immediately in the first semester. i didn't fit in socially with anyone and i hated going outside.

What time of year do you dislike the most hikkis? for me it's definitely summer with the armies of bugs that will invade my house the sleepless nights due to the heat and the idiots who go into overdrive as soon as it gets hotter.

>6 months of constant daylight. How absolutely horrifying.

It's that time of the year again, it hardly gets dark anymore.

Summer is by far the worst time of the year, as said the sun is up most of the day, it's hot as shit and there's no air to breathe. The heat not only makes me lazy and incapable to do anything, it also makes me feel ill. Sleeping is even harder when the sun is boiling your room from late night till noon. Insects are everywhere and there's nothing quite as revolting and disgusting. People everywhere, that get hyperactive and obnoxious as soon as the snow melts, especially the already hyperactive africans that I have as neighbours, plus the fact that their kids are home from school which makes something already insufferable ten times worse. And that fucking annual summer festival and other events where they blast noise all day till late after midnight that makes the whole city shake.

Rain is a blessing if you have to go out for groceries, 80-90% of people disappear from the streets, including every single immigrant, however it feels like it almost never rains. Last summer was horrible, sweltering tropic heat every single day and no rain for weeks and months.
