Procrastination Destination: Where the Hell Am I?

from Yanko Tsvetkov’s Atlas of Prejudice

Here at Wesleying we’re so fucked for finals that we haven’t even been keeping up with our procrastination. If you’re like me, all you really need to procrastinate is a floor to sit on and the ability to stare into space. If not, I’ve got you covered. I’ve long been a fan of geography, ever since I learned that the maps in the back of middle school planners were an excellent way to not pay attention in class. The internet, however, has brought geography-fueled procrastination to new heights. Read past the break for lots of fun geography-related ways to screw yourself over.

Waste Not Collections

From Michael Ortiz ’16:

Did finals wear you out? Don’t feel like packing? Don’t feel like lugging that humongous fridge home, let alone down the stairs? Well lucky you, you don’t have to! Consider donating your stuff to Waste Not!

For those that are unfamiliar with it, Waste Not is Wesleyan’s annual tag sale that aims to reduce waste on campus by selling used goods. Our sale is traditionally in the fall, during NSO. Our collection is during the spring (WHICH IS NOW). So if you don’t feel like carrying that microwave home or if you realized that you don’t REALLY need that printer anymore, consider giving it to us. We’ll be collecting donations on Saturday, May 16 and on Monday, May 25. There will be collection sites at most dorms and at locations between streets, so as to minimize how far you have to go!

If you have any questions/concerns/want to donate immediately, contact us at wesustainability[at]gmail[dot]com.

Procrastination Destination: Wesleyan on the ‘Tube

We’re here for you, avoiding our own work so that you can procrastinate with us. 

Welcome to Part One of Procrastination Destination: Spring ’15 edition! In less than three hours, reading period will end, and we’re basically all screwed. But, if you need something to tide yourself over before the Primal Scream tonight, we’ve got you covered.

YouTube videos about Wesleyan extend to more than just “Party on Fountain” and “How To Do The Michael Roth.” Click through for six more weird/terrible YouTube videos by Wesleyan kids/admins of the past and present.

PRIMAL SCREAM at Midnight

Screen-Shot-2014-05-12-at-8.12.51-PM-1

Leave your belongings unattended at your library desk (or wherever you are) and come to the Olin steps at MIDNIGHT tonight to yell “I’M MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”

Or just scream.

The Primal Scream is a Wes tradition, when students gather on the steps of Olin at midnight before finals officially begin and scream really loudly. There will be a countdown.

Date: TONIGHT
Time: Midnight (when Monday turns to Tuesday..)

Hello, Wes! Have you seen those lovely walls right outside of Weshop? They are presently receiving a lot of love from caregivers who all happen to be seniors! If you are interested in taking care of the walls (just some water and the occasional pruning) please email nestanton[at]wesleyan[dot]edu ASAP!

Happy May.

Do it! Email her!
