Anyone want a Contrary Snivy? Also confessions.

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 30, 2015, 12:35 AM
First off, I have bred nine million Snivy, most of which are Timid with Contrary, and many of which have good IV's. In exchange, I'd like data (SO MUCH DATA) of Legendaries, plus a few odd basics I'm missing. No, I still haven't played OR; it feels like everything took a step backward in terms of what was good about X/Y. Meh. 

And then I have a few confessions. 

One is that I am all but a dreamless creature. My entire life's dream is to surrender my human body and go back to the wild. A far more realistic dream is being able to live entirely off of my writing. (That last thing means that I really do value your collective input on my work.) Also, nobody will ever advocate getting paid for erotic photography as a dream. 

None of these dreams have been supported, by pretty much anyone. The people who actually believe in them can be counted on one hand. In comparison to most people reading this, I am a dreamless individual. 

Life is very hard without dreams. 

It is also very hard when you realize you want recognition and admiration for your accomplishments, but lack a way to really get that that satisfies everybody- particularly you

I wasn't really encouraged to be myself or anything like that. I wanted to run the societal gauntlet without any real goal in mind. Some goals crossed my mind, but if anything, my parents discouraged me instead of encouraging me - "Oh, but you don't like math, you can't commute to every lab, etc.- pick another major besides biology." Classics is pretty much the ultimate dark horse major, so even if I didn't like ANY of the careers it led to, it felt like it could be useful for writing, if nothing else (and it is). Dad even kept bringing up "hey, one guy got hired because his employer randomly liked a weird major." 

Yeah. Great advice. Granted, I was intimidated by the fiercely competitive nature of that field, and some of the tests made me cry, discouraging me further. Still, I've found that I'm very happy with animals, dead or alive - and certainly a lot more so than I am around people. Half of my snakes were a coping mechanism to deal with a 2.5-hour commute both ways, instead. I only got an apartment after an anxiety attack, and that wasn't even permanent.  

I guess what I'm saying is, I'm not the awesome person a lot of you think I am. I failed basic training for a basic job. I really can't do anything I'm not 100% invested in. Hell, I lost a volunteer position, recently - yeah, Classical Studies is a great idea when even a Hellenic Museum won't keep you around. Factoring that onto Eros dying and a family member with a broken arm, I'm having a complete mental breakdown. Hope you all are doing better!
