Coping

I'm starting to think that my brain has evolved and entered a new realm. In this realm, it requires softer movements, lowered sounds, and less cognitive overload.

NFTs, Climate Change, and All That Jazz

How to Travel Through Space

Forget the leftover change at the kirana store, run towards the auto, and run out of breath.
