Stories by A.F. Oehmke
The internet was chaotic this week, but patterns are also starting to emerge.
This week I spent more time on the internet than I did last week, but still less than previously. I also let myself enjoy the things that made me smile and provided a brief and necessary moment of respite.
Honestly, I have spent most of this week avoiding the internet, going online just enough to stay abreast of COVID-19 developments.
