The Monday Catchup

I think it’s safe to say it; I have an opinon about a thing at Kenyon. I think something is one way, but it certainly could be another way. If I publically say that we should change that thing, I know most people will agree with me. I also know that you are all afraid to change that thing — that very thing I now have a strong, fervent, dare I say piping hot, opinion about. Deep down we know that thing can change. Why are we so comfortable with that THING? We must discuss the thing at length. We must call our mom and explain that we plan on changing this thing. If we post about this thing on a subpar college humor blog maybe people will think about that thing. If enough people let other people know their opinion about the thing, maybe we could get that thing to be a different thing, or at least a better thing than it is now. I will not stand for stagnancy. It’s the Monday Catchup.

How was your weekend?

“Happy 5th of Halloween.”

“Well Rocky Horror was an absolute out of body experience.”

Below is what I really have an opinion on.

What: “Slowgirl” by Greg Pierce

  • Slowgirl is the story of a teenager who flees to her reclusive uncle’s retreat in the Costa Rican jungle to escape the aftermath of a horrific accident. The week they spend together forces them both to confront who they are as well as what it is they are running from.

When: Friday, November 9 at 8:00pm to 10:30pm and Saturday, November 10 at 8:00pm to 10:30pm

Where: The Hill


What: The Kenyon College Players Present “Next to Normal”

  • “‘Next to Normal’ is the story of Diana Goodman and her family. Traumatized by the death of her infant son from an undiagnosed intestinal obstruction, Diana has lived with bipolar depressive disorder and delusional episodes for the past seventeen years. The illness has affected everyone in her life, and has nearly torn her family apart on several occasions.
  • Also known as Spring Awakening pt. II
  • Sure to be an uncomfortable cocktail of emotions that are no less important to witness, empahize with, and work through. If you can’t do that, well, you probably aren’t emotionally mature enough to recognize the deep-seeded beauty in this show. I’m sorry for your loss :—(

When: The day you don’t go to see Slowgirl.

Where: NCA 11A
