A great crew of kids we’re calling WeSloth has exciting news:
Homer knew it. Ira Glass is all about it. Even those krazy kids from Are You Afraid of the Dark? were up on it. Telling stories is primordial AND FUN!!!
Welcome to The Sloth. The Sloth, loosely based on some people who put on story slams and wouldn’t let us use their name, is making its debut at Wesleyan.
On Friday, we’ll come together for Wesleyan’s inaugural story slam. We have room for 10 STORYTELLERS.
The theme of the night will be STEALING/STOLEN.
Feel free to interpret said theme however you may choose. So, for example, if we said the theme was “Wo/Man against Nature”, I’d probably tell you the story of how my stomach’s inherited oversensitivity to lactose brought me closer to my father. Or perhaps you’d hear about spending 2 months in the Alaskan tundra tagging birds from my wildman housemate. Or basically anything to do with being a human. However you choose to interpret, we’re down!
If you’d like to tell a story at Wesleyan’s inaugural story slam, please email wesloth[at]gmail[dot]com with a 3 sentence (ish) pitch of your story by TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH at midnight. Stories should aim to be 4-8 minutes long.
The event itself will be held in the Westco Cafe on the night of Friday, February 28th.

Straight from Haley Rauch ’15:
Come audition for the play that the New York Times called ”unprintable,” Variety called “riveting,” and Evening Standard called “an impressive package!”
When John takes a break from his boyfriend, he accidentally meets the girl of his dreams. Filled with guilt and indecision, he decides there is only one way to straighten this out…

Memorized monologues are requested, but not required – we’ll have sides available.
Date: January 31st & February 2nd
Time: 2PM – 4PM
Place: Theater Studios (Jones Room & East Room)
I don’t know about you but this cheesy-looking great quote over cute child thing is working for me. It makes me think of my favorite documentary, Babies.
We’re human and we like things. I love that I’ve met so many folks at Wes with passions they get stoked about, some of which I’ve never even heard. Wesleying wants to know about YOURS.
WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Ayo Wesleyan. I’m just gonna leave this here…
Tell me a story from your Winter Break.
Here’s the link.
Feel free to leave winter-break-themed links/procrastination devices in the comments.
In these break times, I know some of us tend to feel lonely or lost or down. or maybe not! either way, sneeze is always lounging around near a computer. #dontpanicitsonlyamonth
As finals begin, you’re probably (if you’re like me, at any rate) wishing you’d been a bit more productive during reading week. When you are taking those necessary breaks, though, why not procrastinate with something intellectual?
At the very least, you’ll sound smart at holiday parties, and you might even learn something academically useful. (I’ve cited TED Talks in papers before.) Also, all of these procrastination destinations happen to be audio- or video-based, meaning that you can listen to them while you do other things, like eat, clean or tear your hair out in frustration.
Well, somebody fucked up.
Yesterday was the last (full) day of reading period since the first final is today (Tuesday) at 7:00 PM. There was supposed to be a Primal Scream at midnight. It ended up being sqwermy, me, and three other people chilling outside Olin screaming for ten seconds.
So we’re doing it again. Tonight. That means “when Tuesday turns to Wednesday, be outside Olin and scream.” Exactly at midnight. There will be a countdown.
Date: Tuesday, December 10
Time: 11:59 PM, passing into midnight and Wednesday, December 11
Place: Steps in front of Olin
