    It is f'ing circus out there.

    I wanted to get this off of my chest.

    Dear person that read this, i hope you are having a good day and thank you for reading this.

    I am a 24 YO Male, non-US citizen (Turkish) studying as a Software Engineer in my country (This is my last year).
    Since March 2020 till now, everything went to online . Exams,lectures, everything... It has been really relaxing for me since i would not waste time with people and going from place to place. For around 19 months, i have been working out intensely as my father's friend has a really good Home Gym. I am almost there 4-5 times a week. Except that, most of my time is spent on coding or reading .
    Anyways, this 19 months has been really relaxing for me till today. Today face-to-face school started. Mandatory masks, checkpoints everywhere, "mandatory" socializing.. blah blah blah. I live in a town where i almost see no curfew or hard restrictions except first month. I hardly need to wear a mask 15 mins a day. Today i had to sit at class wearing mask for hours, i had to "socialize" with people , listen to their bullshit.
    I realized how addictive and peaceful solitude is . I never dated a girl in my life, i had friends come and go but i realized that it is a fucking circus out there. Apart from studying and jobs , i can't stand people. People talking about bullshit things that don't make sense, "restrictions" making every peaceful place like hell , people mandating to weird laws and shit. My home's door feels like a gate between hell and heaven . Before coroney, it was not that frustrating. But after 19 months of silence , socializing with people feels complete BS to me. Waste of time and braincells.
    I am working hard for years to create money-making apps in smartphones so i don't have to go work at other places , or deal with face-to-face bullshits.

    We have the same front door! Sometimes I feel mine to see if it's too hot to go outside!

    Welcome!

    It really is a nightmare to get to know other people. Most will find that the majority aren't worth knowing.
    In the future there will be robots.

    It is not a nightmare, but a waste of time. I have known a lot of people, but all i learned from friendships and etc.. is it is nothing but a waste of time.

    Make friends with dudes that have their shit together and don't like wasting time! Others with common interests, mutual beneficial, and symbiotic. Anything else is a waste of effort or as you see it, a waste of time.

    Friends that help or friends that hurt is all up the the individual and where he draws the lines. There's plenty of guys here I would call friend, we're birds of a feather (cardinal red).

    Thanks , but tried it. Friendships are not for me . Even my family says that i am an independent person since my childhood, i hardly needed any friends. I realize that talking sucks my energy up. I always read , watch, code or deal with something else. I like to listen , not to talk so listening to intellectual people is enough for me . I am pretty happy with it.

    If one makes a clear distinction in one's mind between friends and acquaintances, then interacting with people can often be a piece of cake, if not downright entertaining. Every interaction is also an opportunity to offer opinions on things a person has never heard (the idea not being to convince the person on the spot that he's dead wrong, but only to plant the notion that he might be wrong, and hope he runs with it).

    I always thought that in Turkey things are a little better. Is it majority islam there?

    It´s look like Brazil is better since goverment don´t work. Yeah ironic, it´s better for not working.

    "Mandatory masks, checkpoints everywhere"

    It´s still very alien to me. Of course, idiots telling what you should do are everywhere. There is even a law to fine people without a mask but there are not police enough for enforce

    I can run without mask if I want and some people do it.

    Turkey is a shitshow. Country is going worse day by day. The checkpoints exist but not everywhere. Usually in government buildings (educational places etc..) and social places like bars,nightclubs etc... I live in a town and i hate those places so i am exempt from most of those rules.

    In Russia, if you're traveling around, a hotel will not admit you unless you show paperwork from the previous hotel you stayed at. They track you everywhere in Russia, including with facial recognition. Even in some of the smaller towns -- the few that aren't slowly dying, anyway -- there are spycams everywhere.

    The father-in-law of a minor vlogger from the town of Fryazino (Фрязино, pronounced fra'-zee-nah) just sold his dacha (seasonal cottage) and the land it was on to a "rich guy" who wanted to buy all the nearby dachas so he'd have land to build on. I've seen pictures of his "mansion."

    My ass. That "mansion" is a KGB outpost and makes no effort to hide that fact. Looks like you could hit it with a thousand anti-tank rounds and it wouldn't even chip the paint.

    The poor old guy who sold his dacha claims he didn't want it any more, that he preferred living in the city in his shithole prison-cell apartment like 99% of all Russian apartments are. Bullshit. The poor guy was strongarmed, probably using threats against his son, his daughter-in-law, and their son.

    I’ve noticed that lots of the friendships are wayyy too codependent for my taste, if someone owed me money I couldn’t take it really.

    Same here, some of my old friends call me and it is torture to talk for even 15 minutes.

    Why are you going to class?

    Re: It is f'ing circus out there.

    It is necessary. They take attendance and under 60% attendance gives you automatic NG. But some classes don't. I rarely go to them, just to make sure i don't miss anything.

    Sorry I mean, why are you going to college?

    I guess it makes sense given it's your last year so you have the debt racked up, but generally, college education is useless because post college you are left with a huge debt burden yet the jobs are given to diversity hires instead of skilled individuals. I wouldn't want to work in an office environment as a ghost / monk (and I don't) so for software all the skills required to code can be learned at home or whilst building your own business.

    As long as you are at college or work for someone you can never be your own person.

    Oh, no . You are talking about the USA here, i don't live in USA. Here my grandparents pay for it monthly and they have no problem for it. I have no debt at all. Software Engineering is pretty valuable here.Diversity hiring is not a fact here in my country yet (gladly), i know that because i got internship in biggest tech company in my country this summer and finished it without any issue.
    Also, in summer i did coding,read lot of books and did internship almost every waking hour. I have a project that i can make a company out of in future so i don't have any issue with working on my own. College is just a plan B.

    Sounds like you are in a good position.
    I was referring to the West in general, and it's spreading fast... Japan is a land of men living in hikikomori (social isolation) whereas its women are all buying dogs instead of dating. If you get married in Japan, the man is supposed to give the woman everything and gets an allowance...so she can go cafe cruising all day whilst he works, often for "black companies" where they work them for 20 hours a day for a pittance.
    Everything that occurs in the USA spreads fast...like a cancer.
    As for me, I live in the UK, got a software engineering BTEC ND, Computer Science BSc, fortunate enough to go to University before clown world set in. I wouldn't if I had to go now.

    I never dated, i never plan to date let alone marriage so that i can't relate with lol.
    I am just in and out of the class right now, i live close so instantly after classes i go to my house. The only reason i involve with other people is just to study together, nothing else.
    Nice , that seems like a good degree!
