Panel One: Ellie is sitting criss-cross on their bed with a blanket wrapped over their head and a tuxedo cat curled up next to them. A black box in the corner of the panel says 2:00 AM. They address the reader and say, “Pssst!” “Do you wanna know what really scared me about life post-grad?

Panel Two: a close up shot of Ellie from the chest up, counting their points off on their fingers as they say, “It’s not getting a job or like, student debt, or the millions of other reasons to be scared of adulthood today, although that does keep me up at night.” 

Panel Three: Close up shot continued. Ellie puts their hands down and their face sinks. They say, “What horrifies me most, is that I might stop making things.”

Panel Fiour: Close up shot continued. Ellie pulls the blanket off of their head and their eyes fall to the ground. They say, “Whether because of money or life, the world, or just a lack of juice,”

Panel Five: The shot pulls back and we see their full body sitting on their bed again. The cat in the corner wakes up and stretches his back as Ellie looks straight ahead, wraps themselves tighter in their blanket and says, “one day I might just- stop. And not notice, or care.”

Panel Six: A close up shot of Ellie’s hand petting the cat. They say, “I'm just scared of this all being a waste.”

Panel Seven: A close up of Ellie’s face looking down towards the cat. They say “I don't know what I am if not this. And I’ve come to quite like this.”
