My sweet as can be xirlfriend has relieved me of the one point of shame I had in my Gen IV Pokedex challenge. You see, while I have no issue using the AR for the Gen IV events for Manaphy, Darkrai, Cresselia and Arceus, I felt a twinge of regret using it for Deoxys and Jirachi. That’s because unlike those other four, I wouldn’t be triggering a thing already in the code, like receiving the event items or the egg. Instead, I was just hacking in the gifted Pokémon or even just the Pokémon in the wild. Well, I need worry no more: they bought me a Japanese copy of Sapphire, with a ton of event mons, including those two. I am blessed.
TEL is still going smooth, but I think this chapter I just finished is the weakest by far. I need to find a way to inject more tension into what is kinda a flat investigation narrative. One to sleep on.

I’m Sam, and I live to write. I spent most of the first 8 years of my adulthood trying to balance writing with a large amount of crap in my personal life, until towards the end of 2018 I threw everything out and started afresh with just my writing. I built the new me around one goal: I have to write at least 1,000 words a day. I called this goal 1K, and it changed my life. So long as I write a thousand words a day, the day is a success, and atop that I've managed over time to build the life I wanted all those years.
My greatest flaws as a writer is I still use too many adjectives, adverbs, connectives as openers, accidental passive voice and I don't force my work down people's throats enough on pain of extreme and unusual torture. My greatest strength is I know my greatest flaws and I'm working on them.
