Conner's Motivations, Including...6:00AMConner's Motivations, Including... by DragonflyLite
His burden, responsibility
The sun had not yet risen. Woken by his alarm clock, Conner Reinsberg sat up in bed briefly, slapped the snooze button, and then fell back under the covers. He vaguely calculated the exact length of time he could sleep in and still have enough time to get ready, see his younger siblings off to school and still be at work on time. Although more hardworking then most, even he had days when waking up seemed like more of a chore then it was worth.
He was considering how much time he could add to his sleeping-in session by making his middle brother Dale prepare breakfast when his cellphone rang. After letting it go for a few moments, he got up again and wearily grabbed it off the nightstand beside his bed, squinting in the light from the screen trying to read the message. As he did so though, his tired frown turned into an energetic smile. He bounced up, practically dropping his phone on the table in the process, next to an old, much-loved Courage the Cowar
Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty EditionToday, March 1st is Self-Harm Awareness Day, but I think it deserves more than a day. I won't say much about it because other people have already published wonderful articles about it, I recommend that you read Nichrysalis's Fears vs Dreams and BeccaJS' Recovery, both contain a lot of wonderful information and share touching experiences.Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty Edition by Talty
What I can tell you is this: self-harm is a problem that is often not recognized. It takes many forms, forms that are not recognized even by the person committing it. Self-harm is always a problem, even if you think you have it under control or that it's not serious, it is. If you are currently committing any form of self-harm, or if you suspect anyone else is, reach out for help. Both articles contain links and resources to guide you, and I'm here to talk :iconheartorangeplz:.

Hey, I'm Alice, but I go by Lesley or Les online. I'm a hobbyist-hoping to eventually go professional fiction writer; I also do photography, cook, draw and sing. I eat, sleep and breath my art. It's a huge part of my life.
I guess you could think of me as the idiosyncratic author type; I'm weird and abstract but I'm also very open to new experiences and like to have fun. Besides my art, I love dogs, bird watching, philosophy and mythology. I do a lot of reading and videogaming in my spare time, or otherwise ramble about the internet being myself. I'm no genius, but I know a little bit about a lot of things; generally I'm pretty laid back and friendly and such. X3
Does anyone just want to do a random Pokemon trade? I'm missing the ability to do GTS negotiations in past gens. I don't have a lot of impressive things, but I can breed Wish/Volt Tackle Pichu. Ask about anything else, I do have a lot of normal high-level pokes. Some things that I am looking for are evolution items for Dusclops, Magmar, Electabuzz and Spritzee. I do not own any for-sure legit shinies so I can't offer any but I've always wanted a shiny Ponyta. I don't EV train my Pokemon so I have no idea what their IVs look like.
