SLEEP/WORK/MONEY

I made another little Twine poem. This one’s particularly small and unintelligible because I’ve been so tired due to events spanning the last couple of days that I couldn’t physically produce anything longer or more coherent.

So, instead of writing a response or analysis, I decided to do something a little more fun and a little more cathartic. Below are 16 headlines describing vague—but […]
