I came up with Alter Ego when I decided what I wanted the site to be. I had a personal site a couple months ago, but I got rid of it. When I decided to start another one, I wanted a better name. Plus, I decided to try and show a different side of myself, one that never comes out too often. Hence the name, "Alter Ego," to bring out my inner-self, which is about as psychological (big word!) as I'm probably ever going to sound. Let's just keep it short and say that "Riot-Girl" didn't seem to work, so I went with the alternative. Short. Sweet. And Simple.
