Primal Scream @ Midnight

The night before finals (yeah, that’s tonight) is a night to scream. Jason Shatz ’14 was thoughtful enough to set up a Facebook event for the occasion:

‘Tis the season to scream! Some people scream over holiday shopping. Others scream about a pending apocalypse.

But here at Wesleyan, we scream about the monsoon of papers with pending due dates and exams that are scheduled within the next few days. The first ones are tomorrow, so you know what that means…

It’s time to scream your lungs out! Never mind quiet hours, we’re too stressed for that. Let’s engage in one more community gathering – the only chance for community-based stress relief this semester.

At midnight, come out of your study bunkers at Olin, SciLi, wherever you are. You know what to do!

Date: Monday, December 10 (okay, technically Tuesday, whatever)
Time: Gather at 11:55, scream at 12:00
Place: Olin steps (or anywhere)

Gag Reflex Reading Week Show

Gag Reflex is helping you think positive this reading week:

Join us in Exley for some completely improv-ed comedy, just like your completely improv-ed studying.

The location is ideal: you’ll find us as you walk groggily from Sci-Li to Pi Cafe to grab yourself another chai charger.

But if you can’t make it to the show, here are some survival tips for this coming week and beyond:

-Whatever you’re doing, imagine Michelle Obama is looking at you with encouragement and approval.
-Keep a plastic bag from Broad Street Books in your room at all times. They are non-porous, which makes them ideal for catching vomit and urine.
-Everyone is going to be at their wit’s end, so it’s the perfect time to hit on someone who is much better looking that you.
-Make friends in high places. Like the empire state building. Or westco.

Date: Monday, December 10
Time: 5:00 pm
Place: Exley Lobbey (right outside Pi)
Cost: Free
