How do people have "lives" without being NEET?

the people you see taking vacations twice a year and random days off to shop or travel are wealthy or have alternative sources of income which make such things possible.
wage cucks don't get nice things.

Uh well your first mistake is working 11 hours each day for someone other than yourself. If you want time to enjoy, become the guy you are working for

Two things.

First, if you work minimum wage and have no plans of moving up from minimum wage, then of course it's going to seem like people who take vacations are "wealthy".

Second, my first job a few years ago (2014 I think?) was minimum wage in California where it's not exactly cheap to live. I didn't even work full time (40 hours) but I still had money to go out every weekend and afford any groceries or video game I wanted.

Using that job experience I now have a $50/hr job with a high school diploma and some college experience (no degree). I choose to work 50 hours per week, I have every benefit an employer can offer, and in 5-10 years I'll be making at least $150k/year and will probably retire having made just under $200k/year. I'm 26 years old.

There's no excuse not to get out there and find a way to earn a decent living. Most people make the excuse of "I'd rather pursue my interests" or "I don't want to have to dedicate 40 hours per week", which is entirely their prerogative, but then they don't get to complain that they can't afford to take a vacation twice per year (which isn't even a lot of vacation time) when all they do for money is mow their parents' lawns twice per month.

Routines. You'll get used to your schedules, even if you work shifts, like I have my entire working life. You'll find that you have a lot more time than you think you do, either before or after work. You're probably awake for at least 16 hours each day so if work only takes up 11 hours that's plenty of time to run errands or do chores, with being able to spend an hour or two with a friend to boot.

If you don't feel like socializing on your work days (like me), save hanging out until your weekend. If you do that, just make sure to keep up with running errands and doing chores on your work day.

This is what being an adult is about. Some people are motivated to make the most out of it, some people prefer to be NPCs who put in minimal effort.

You just aren't used to it. I used to work 12 hours including travel and work out 5 times a week while still seeing friends on the weekend. It's possible, you just have to do it.

you get used to it eventually, i get home from work monday - thursday listen to music, cook good food, and relax. friday i go straight from work to a buddys house and stay out as late as possible. sleep in on saturdays, go out for a few hours, hike with some friends and get groceries after wards. then on sundays wake up at a decent time get housework done early then relax until its time to go to bed

once you get yourself comfortable and in a consistent cycle its not too bad tbh

if you're not happy, change. The world isn't going to hand you 6 digit salaries. I worked bullshit jobs, changed what I hated,and now, through joint income, my family makes 150k a year. I work evenings, so I'm up in the morning, gym, cook, clean, work for 10 hours (including drive and prep time) get out at 11pm. I can still meet friends out, and still party when needed.

On my families 150k/year salary, we take st least 4 vacations, either through budgeting or planning cheap but fulfilling trips. A vacation doesn't need to cost $10k, book in advance, find cheap but reputable hotels, and enjoy the place you're in.
