First, I'd like to tell you a little about myself! My name is Jennifer, and I am a 20 year old college student who has been playing neopets for a little over 8 years. (Since I was twelve years old!) I remember one of my best friends in 6th grade introduced me to the site, and helped me create my first pet. When I saw the breed of "Draik", I was like "WOW I really like those! Can I create one?" And my friend told me no, they were "special pets". So I thought, Ok, I'll try to save up to have one of my very own. Years went by, And I learned more and more about how wanted Draiks were. I saw many Newbies begging on the NeoBoards and getting screamed at for daring to ask for one. I became very intimidated, and I never applied for a Draik, or asked for one. Out of fear. I tried to save, but reached a point where the saving become overwhelming. I was able to save up for a labray (back when they wheren't too expensive) and instead of ending up with my dreamie, A draik of any kind, I was ending up with a lot of other Neopians dreamies. Colors and species of all kinds. So, I decided to make a side account specifically for adopting out dream pets to deserving and well-rounded owners, that the labray had blessed me with. The reason why I started the little adoption agency, was because no offers to "trade" pets satisfied me. People would ask "Well what are you looking for?" "Well what's your dream pet?" And I would simply tell them "A Draik." I would instead just adopt the pets out to owners who I knew really wanted them. I always hoped someday I would get the chance to own my favorite pet of all.
And as time went on..As time went on, I tried being content about not being able to save all of the millions for my very own Draik. I traded off beautiful pets to their new owners, feeling the happiness of other people and how amazing I made them feel just by being kind, and I became OK with the fact that I may never be lucky enough to own a Draik. I said to myself "Its ok, its only a game." But truth be told, I've been playing Neo for so long that this "game" has become a second life for me, to escape from my college essays and the real world, to kick back and relax, and enjoying the simple things I have always enjoyed since I was twelve years old.
I have learned a whole lot from this site, and I have witnessed a lot of trust, empathy, and sincerity from people, and have given it out to others as well.
Even if I am not picked to care for Auresi, I will personally neomail and congratulate the new owner. Its a wonderful opportunity and experience, and on top of that, I am sure RainbowSpleen must have picked the person who was most deserving and sincere.
If I Were Chosen
If I am chosen to care for Auresi, I would love to customise her! I love customising all of my pets, and I would go to great lengths and through great pains to make sure Auresi becomes a Notable Neopet. Just like one of my most recent accomplishments, My Notable Neohome that I've worked very hard on:
I have been a dedicated player, and I have put a lot of time and effort into everything I do on this site, and I hope it shows!
I have gone out and done extra research on Auresi and found out her birthday, the 13th of July, 2012. My birthday happens to be the 12th of July! How amazing is that? Talk about true fate!
If Auresi were mine, she'd never be up for trade or adoption. How could I trade the pet of my dreams? What could be better than the one pet i've had my eye on since I began here on Neopets?
I not only plan on customising her, but I would like to double paint her, first, Royal and then Pink. I would go through great pains to make sure she looked like a pampered princess!
In conclusion, I would just like to thank RainbowSpleen. Thank you for reading this, thank you for mailing me back, and thank you for your time altogether. I am very nervous but very grateful and appreciative of the chance I was given to make one of my very long awaited well-sought after dreams come true. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. A thank you just isn't enough.
