No; I actually don't have any skills that would be useful for getting a job. I just play computer games and watch shows all day, and I'm trying to motivate myself to learn useful things so I don't end up as a bum with no life.
You should try to get a job at a ranch. That will give you some grit.
Console Battle is two games rolled into one: gambling (whether or not you get one of the OP weapons) and betting (which teammate won't turn on you, since teaming is pretty much a requirement to kill off another team)! Of course, it's not all chance; at its core, Battle is about triumphing and defeating other players... by kicking them out if they win to make yourself feel better.
And yeah, shame about that hard-to-kill prejudice thing isn't it. But don't let people's disapproval oppress you. Keep in mind that what one person can do, another person can do. In other words, dash your shy hopes against the rocks and have faith - strive for what you want in life, no matter how high, how great, or seemingly out of reach it may appear to be.
