Rich students don’t like to talk about money. It can be embarrassing to express the amount of money in your bank account, especially when it’s money your parents wire to you. And it’s easy to avoid conversation about something you don’t think of much.

Every year, the days leading up to my birthday are filled with dread. The idea of spending an entire day celebrating myself feels like a lot of pressure. Though I have always loved a good party, a celebration revolving around myself has never seemed like the best way to spend an evening. How am I supposed to commemorate my birth when I don’t even like myself most of the time?

Everything was perfect, or at least that’s how it seemed. As a first year theatre student I was in awe at where I, a poor kid from the middle of nowhere, had the honor to attend school.

The people that walked around the building were just as perfect.

I’ve been settling recently. I’ve settled into a new home. I’ve settled into a new routine. I’ve settled into a global pandemic. I watch as my friends and family seem to do the same. The mention of  “COVID-19” sounds like the name of an estranged relative my family likes to gossip about. While I get annoyed when my mother brings it up at the dinner table, I can’t help but listen to every word, waiting for the next update in the soapbox drama that is the havoc of our lives.

The best of it is remembering. Quiet daydreams of times when a hug wasn’t something to be afraid of.

The worst of it is remembering. Waking up to the new world I’m forcibly growing accustomed to. 

The best of it is the ritual cup of coffee I make every morning. I never used to have time for that. 

The worst of it is the ritual cup of coffee I make every morning. A symbol of an idle life I’ve been trained to resent.

“We wanted to create a good mix of performances. Because the subject matter in ‘No Safety Net’ is so heavy, we didn’t want to have such a dark event to start this series off.

Families like Anonymous and I’s have love at its core, just as other families do. Love that has always existed and will continue to exist, regardless of what any law could ever say.
