How do you manage to do so much without simply collapsing? Your workload is incredible!
Aww, thank you!! I think it helps that I genuinely enjoy it, a lot. Mixing hobbies with work is a lovely combo, and it keeps me invested in doing the best I can every day.

Do you know if anything happens once you reach level 100?
We're gonna have to find out!

Is it true that if your tail goes out you will die?
I just come back two times stronger.

Is it true you do not sleep?
It was genuinely true for a while, I had insomnia and just was up without ever sleeping. I do get sleep these days, but no one believes me, haha.

Coolest benefit / trip you've taken / etc you've gotten from being a journalist for GBAtemp?
E3, honestly. I know some of our UK staff have had some really cool invites, like using the Switch prior to its launch or getting to stay in a straight up castle for a day, but E3 is definitely the king of all of the things I've done. I wish I was a little less shy--I saw Charles Martinet taking pictures with some of the media there, and Reggie was signing the backs of Switch consoles, one of the years, too. There's some fancy media lounges that you get to stay in, too. I remember Ubisoft's had this really amazing caramel popcorn they were giving to people in the waiting room, and obvs you get tons of media swag, too. I had to buy a second suitcase more than once to bring home all the crap, haha.

When you going to evolve to Charizard!? :ninja:
Never!! I'm holding an Everstone.

Do you sleep now?
Only when there's no news happening.

Do you get paid?

Don't lie, sleep is for the weak
