"1. The poem about one of her co-workers, Ariel, stood out to me the most. It amazed me that Sierra can write poems on something so simple like a coworker. The majority of the poem was making fun of Adriel's ways or aspects like her tattoos, but…"

"1. I like Julia's and Luke's piece because they talked about the troubles they face as a tall woman and a short man. They tackled a real issue that most people ignore. It shouldn't matter how tall or short you are; that shouldn't…"

"1) The poem about Jeffrey Dahmer's mother was my favorite. I enjoy hearing both perspectives of an issue, and I wonder what the families feel when they find out that someone they grew up with is convicted of murder. The media always…"

I was so impressed by how in sync these performers were.  When Miss Berdick told me they put together this entire show in 6 weeks, I was stunned.  Not many people realize how much work goes into a theatrical performance and I applaud the entire  cast!

Today I had the opportunity to watch the Fermilab Physics Slam second period. Going into Writer's Week today, I was expecting a very fun, quick explanations of physics, maybe from some young science guys. I was taken aback by the two very established and professional looking Physicians that I heard from today. It was clear that they were physicians, not performance speakers, because of their often monotonous and scientific monologues. I enjoy the male physician's monologue a little better then the womens, beause he used some props that helped explain his point to me. Though it was kind of the Fermilab physicians to take their time to come and speak to us today, I feel as thought their speeches went over our heads a bit.
