Open Mic Night

So today, I unexpectedly got out of class early and ended up going to the Coffeehouse, which is a great little poetry & open mic night that's set up by my favorite.teacher.ever.

I texted Jay to come by, and he did-- with a piece he wanted to read. I said I wanted to read but wasn't sure what I should share... all I could think of off of my head was Times Square, 2011. So I rushed to the computer lab & printed it out, and read it. :)

So Jay & I both read at the open mic part of the night, and it went over really well. I'm still excited about it... it was the first time I'd ever done anything like that!

The strangest part was... there was a girl in the audience who is friends with the guy who inspired Times Square, 2011. I don't know if she recognized me, or if the thought even crossed her mind, but it was definitely interesting to read it in front of her.
