"Although I might not be Asian, it doesn't mean my family doesn't have high expectations for me. For years and years I've struggled to achieve these expectations, especially the ones precedents by my genius of a brother. Often times I…"
"I really liked what you had to Say about Katie's speech. It must've been hard for her to come and talk to all of us about something very personal but the way that she did it inspired many of us to get up and make a change in the world and…"
"I really like what you have to say here about learning from the writers. A lot of times we can find shame when wanting to tell other people about our lives and what we have gone through but we get wrapped up in worrying what people will think of us…"
"As a fellow listener YouTube-made music listener and my little pony music listener, I have spent much time listening to Great to Be Different. What was always so amazing to me was how many ways a song like that can be interpreted for each person.…"
"I still miss those days when it was just us two oboists playing at hunting ridge such a same that you decided that you had no musical talent and quit. It's never to late, we could always use another oboist in the fremd band."
"I agree with you on how you say that you do not like stories that are not believable. I find that I often end up disliking a book because the ending of the book is such a cop-out. They try to make the ending into a fairy-tale ending and that…"
"Forgiveness by Matthew West was almost one of the songs that I wrote about. I think it's so cool how a lot of us in this discussion all spoke about songs like these, it's really cool to see. Christian songs like these really inspire a lot…"
"I agree with you completely about the accents, it's so weird to see people outside palatine (which is a fairly diverse community) who have no tolerance for foreigners or people with accents. Where at Fremd it is accepted and almost a norm for…"
"Incompletely agree with your comment on honesty, it definitely makes a story mean so much more when the entire thing is true. It really made me connect more with the writers when I heard them say that everything was true to their lives."
"I totally agree on how Katie wasn't looking for sympathy with her piece, she's a really strong person for standing up in front of hundreds of people to tell her story. I think anyone can benefit from her story and how she turned her…"
"The fact is, some people just aren't educated of the subject of being transgender and what it involves. Cory wanted to inform what it is like to be transgender to those that didn't have as much knowledge on the topic. At this point in…"
"I also loved how she wrote her poems with her own personal experiences influencing her writing. It helps others to relate to her poems if they are going through the same thing. I agree that performance poetry is a rich and complicated art. It is a…"
"I agree t hat Sierra DeMulder is an amazing slam poet. However, you don't really know for sure that everyone felt that every word was spoken directly to them, so I would be more careful with your wording there. I also loved her poem about her…"
"Luke at the beginning of the class period I felt the same way on how he wouldn't be that funny, but by the end of the period I bought his book. Despite likening his performance I must agree that he did end up going away from the norm of high…"
"1.) What I loved most about Sierra DeMulder is her strong character that shines through. When she talked, I felt like she was an old friend. I look forward to seeing her again this year because she always presents such powerful pieces. My favorite…"

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.
