This week at OMN

Open Mic Night was on January 30 at the University Center. Put together by the University Program Council, this was their second Open Mic of the spring semester.

    Open Mic Night is a platform for students to come out and perform their work. Whether that’s singing, comedy, poetry or stories. This Open Mic Night was smaller than usual, though, with only two performers.

    The first performer was senior human services major, Heather Blitch. Blitch has performed her work before, but it was her first time at Open Mic Night; she performed a poem about a past relationship titled “Unrequited.”

    Blitch was compelled to perform because she wanted to express her feelings from her past relationships. She knew that she couldn’t always express herself to people, so she turned to paper.

    “Paper is a better listener than people have ever been,” Blitch said.

    Blitch said that on paper she feels more authentic. For her, it’s easier to think before she speaks, so it’s very easy for her to write. Blitch also loves to perform because not only does she get to express herself, she has a sense of control when she performs. She gets to control how vulnerable she is on stage.

    For Blitch, seeing others perform is just as important as performing; it builds a sense of community, so she looks forward to the other Open Mic Nights planned.
