re: Poker & evaluation requested please :)
Consider the things necessary to do great in those huge tournaments.
You have to have learned about your own patience. You have begun to understand some one those undefinable aspects of what happens when things go good, and what is happening when things don't go so good.
You have experienced the joy of winning, and the frustrations of defeat, and you did much of that at no financial cost to you.
You have learned that it is a very difficult process surviving 20,000 other players.
Yes freerolls are freerolls (insert all negative connotations here). They are full of more bad play than you can shake a stick at. BUT they play more like the big tournament (WSOP) than most of the smaller tournaments that most real money
I have traveled your path, started with play money and freerolls. Man its tuff, but it 'hardened' me (like steel), and I think overall it was worth the time to do it that way.
So, in my opinion, your doing great. It may be close to the time where you make the jump into mostly real money games. Many will probably say it's way past the time, and you should have been a real money player for a few months by now. I won't disagree, but will suggest it is time to re-evaluate your comfort level.
