Arash’s “Ends Meet”

In this drama monologue Ends Meet, ARASH talks to his friend about the difficult financial times he is encountering.

ARASH:  Things were going well for so long, we got caught up with never imagining things would go the way in which they have…

We both came from nothing and struggled for so many years, trying to make ends meat.  When the getting got good, we slowly began to get used to actually enjoying life a bit more…and then, I guess as time went by we lost a sense of worrying about money, which was something we always stressed over and to be honest it just felt so damn good to not have to think about how we were going to pay our rent, or pay for dinner or pay for anything, really.

We forgot to worry…or, at least have a sense of the kind of responsibility we needed to remember.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks!
