Love/Hate Relationship with your Team Member

I'll kiss you but I'll have to rip your throat out
I’ll kiss you but I’ll have to rip your throat out

For all you college students out there, it’s the middle of Winter Quarter. We just got over the holiday blues, but there is so much more things to deal with.

What is ArcZap?

Arc, Arch, Zap
