The Things That Kept People Alive

Today, I woke up sleep-deprived. Not that I’m complaining, I’m just feeling super tired. It’s easy to figure out if I’m extremely exhausted—if it’s only ten in the morning and I’ve succumbed to a can of Red Bull and both ears plugged into power beats from Spotify.
