Abstract
It is nearing the end of the fall semester of Laura Sterling’s final year at Marsarn Bach College and she wonders how all the days seem to blur together. Struggling with self isolation and anxiety, Laura finds herself in a seemingly hopeless cycle of self sabotage. That is, until Laura’s repetitive world is turned on its head as she encounters her mirror reflection on a late night drive on abandoned roads leading away from her campus. Startled by seeing herself standing before her, Laura finds herself unwittingly trading places with her reflection. Stuck in this strange new world, Laura finds herself forced to view her own life through the other side of the mirror. She must reckon with what it actually means to let your life pass you by and begin to understand what those around her truly think of her as she watches interactions between her reflection and her peers without the intervention of her own cloudy thoughts. “Narcissus Removed” follows the struggles of an ordinary college student as she traverses through a surreal landscape and is forced to reevaluate her perspective on the world she inhabits and find her way home.
