Overheard: Students Lerning Together
Written by Bwog Staff
There’s a lot to overhear in Lerner, from the incessant piano playing to the chiming of elevators as they go up and down and up and down or sometimes just linger on one floor with their doors opening and closing. Oh, and then there are the student conversations.
Without further ado, we present a series of vignettes from a several hour stint in everyone’s favorite glass house.
A Night in Lerner: A Non-Musical.
Act I, Two students walk through Lerner; they ponder the existential questions of life, much like the content of a Beckett work.
Girl: “I’m talking about like psychological shit bro, like, I can break your ass down!”
Guy: “…did you just say ‘bro?'”
Act II, A group of three students discuss the nature of true love.
Guy: “You have to make sure that you let him know that you like him…”
Girl 1: “Well, that’s the thing, I made a mistake. I told him I liked him.”
Guy: “You what?”
Girl 2: “Yeah, that was a mistake…”
Guy: “What?! Obviously!”
Act III, Faced with difficult choices, a male student questions his identity and the identities of others.
Male student: “By the way, so you’re CC?”
Female student: “…”
Male student: “Barnard? I’m sorry, I’m an Applied Math major, so this happens sometimes.”
Girl student (later): “So… you’re really SEAS?”
