I go by Penny Dreadful and am a 24 year old female volcel suffering from mental illness. I’m from the United States and speak English fluently and exclusively. I am also hikikomori and NEET, so I don’t really get out much or do much of anything. It can get rather lonely since I don’t have any friends to hang out with IRL, though I try to focus my time and energy into hobbies such as digital art.
Lookswise, I’d say I’m below average. I’m 5’5 and about 150 lbs. I’m also African-American and am very insecure/self-loathing about my appearance as a result. While I’ve made attempts to looksmax and become a more productive and optimistic person, I’ve found myself either burning out or becoming discouraged and giving up. It’s so difficult to do this on my own, especially when you don’t have anyone with a similar mindset to help you with the process.
I’m hoping that this website might be of some use to me, that I can meet others who want to improve both internally and externally. I’m unsure of how often I’ll frequent said site, though I still wish to potentially gain a better mindset than what I’ve typically held.
