The third enrichment workshop was Baruch Voices. I thought it was pretty interesting to hear other people’s monologues. A lot of them were depressing and made me feel so much better about my life, no matter how bad that sounds. It all was just about everyone’s problems which I guess was the point of the monologues, to get things off your chest. But honestly, there are only so much depressing stories one person can hear in 2 hours without feeling sad for the rest of the day.
But at least there were two that weren’t depressing – the one a guy wrote to his future wife and the one about the guy and his band performing at Baruch. “Baruch is on fire” was the highlight of Baruch Voices. I thought the performance from convocation day was more uplifting than the one we went to recently but at least it served its purpose – to be the third workshop and to let people get their problems off their chest.
