Remember Me?

Magnet visits with people we haven't seen in awhile.

Musical Improviser and Tech Tori Smith

1. Where are you sheltering?

At my apartment in Harlem. I live alone, so I taped a styrofoam head on my dress form. Her name is Bernadette.

2. How are you staying sane?

I definitely haven't, but I've tried staying busy so I don't have time to think about it. I've used my free time to go back to school, start up a side gig as a cosplay commissions artist, build some Mandalorian armor, tech and perform in virtual shows. Ya know, casual relaxing stuff.

3. What do you miss most?

Hanging out at Haymaker on Tuesday nights after Musical Megawatt. It was my steady night of the week to perform, see friends, and relax. And maybe to drink too much, but that's neither here nor there.

4. What don't you miss?

Being "obligation" busy. Pre-pandemic, I was working on things I wasn't particularly passionate about, but felt I HAD to do to not disappoint others. Now, I'm busy with things I really care about, and I'm much better for it.

5. What do you want to say to the other members of the Magnet community?

Keep going, however you can. This sucks, so if you find something that doesn't suck and makes you feel nice, big or small, short or long-lived, just do it. Make those dumb TikToks, buy those rollerskates, bake that bread. If it makes you feel good, it's worth it.
