I am graphics designer living in Jamestown Pennsylvania. I graduated with a baccalaureate in Business with a secondary in Management Information Sciences from Penn State University, and I graduated with a Masters in Mass Media, Arts, Journalism, and Communication studies from Clarion University. I have been designing graphical user interfaces and designer templates for web sites since 1998, and I have been a graphics designer since 1994 (my junior year of high school). My life is rather interesting because my hobby of designing cutting edge graphics for print, cutting edge pages for the World Wide Web have become my job.

What is A NEET? It's Who I Am!
Wikipedia defines NEET as:
“NEET is a government acronym for people currently "not in education, employment, or training". It was first used in the United Kingdom but its use has spread to other countries, including Japan, China, and South Korea. People under the designation are called NEETs (or Neets).
In the United Kingdom, the classification comprises people aged between 16 and 24 (some 16-year-olds are still of compulsory school age); the subgroup of NEETs aged 16–18 is frequently of particular focus. In Japan, the classification comprises people aged between 15 and 34 who are unemployed, not engaged in housework, not enrolled in school or work-related training, and not seeking work. The "NEET group" is not a uniform set of individuals.”
The US terminology is Boomerang, and defines it as a person out of work who moves back home to their parents; the US populous treats this act in a very negative light even though it is becoming more common.
Many NEETs have attempted to break away by using their creativity to start companies, move to freelancing, and eventually being hired by a company. That’s why I like the “NEET” term better than “Boomerang” (sure boomerangs break out too) but NEETs seem to be more creative.
