Spent part of the day at West Jordan High judging a poetry slam, and may I say I think that school has a really nice vibe? And may I also say students who get up and read their poems in front of fellow students are brave and fabulous? I would have marched into the nearest bathroom and given myself a swirly before doing that in high school.
On a related note, walking through the cafeteria on the way to the auditorium reminded me again of how terrifying adolescence can be. I felt fourteen again. Except that now I have stretch marks.
Congratulations to Amy and Andria and the English faculty at WJHS for sponsoring such a terrific event.
