Ideally, I would rather find a new solution that we both want. Too often compromise is “I’m not happy so you shouldn’t be either!” In work situations I’ve been fine with “not getting what I want” rather than going with a solution neither of us want, because in healthy relationships (work, platonic, romantic) these things balance out.

Hey-hey!

My other most active form of online presence is instagram: http://instagram.com/nixxed and I like that because I mostly use my twitter (https://twitter.com/arisascott) for photos!

My startup has a facebook page for the game we’re working on: https://www.facebook.com/SpiritSiege there are occasionally pictures I take and notes from me there.
