1. I went to my first poetry slam today put on by the amazingly talented Guelph Poetry Slam team. My favourite poems were this one about gender (above) and one about racism in an elevator and other underlying factors of being scared of the person you’re with “To the white girl in the elevator” (it was a new spin on the topic I hadn’t heard before and it was really well done)
2. I went completely on my own, which is a big deal since almost everything around here happens in at least pairs.
3. I made a new friend with the girl I was sitting beside (whose name I regretfully cannot remember, although I do know that she’s doing her PhD in poly sci and likes sushi).
4. Some stranger complimented my mickey mouse sweater
