Do you enjoy reading or writing poetry? Don’t have Fall Break plans yet? Already going to New York for Fall Break?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you should consider going to the Academy of American Poets Annual Forum on Saturday, October 18th in New York City. Poets including (but not limited to) C.D. Wright, Mark Doty, Jane Hirschfield, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Toi Derricotte will all explore different topics in a series of intimate talks over the course of the day. Essentially, it’s an incredible opportunity and the Wesleyan English Department and Writing Program have generously agreed to sponsor 10 students to attend. You must apply before October 1st at 8 PM in order to be considered. So CLICK HERE and get started on your application. If you have any questions, feel free to email kgibbel[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

As the latest development in the race for being the number one cloud storage service, Dropbox has announced that it will give anyone with a .edu account (that means, anybody(at)wesleyan(dot)edu) is eligible) three gigs of free space for the next two years. This is on top of the two free gigs that you have as a regular Dropbox user.
As an interesting twist, if a certain number of Wesleyan students sign up, we all get an additional eight (8) gigs. Currently, we need 1572 points to get to that number (get points by referring other students). Click here for a referral yourself.
It also seems that if we get a high enough amount of points, we could all earn 15 or 25 GB of space. On the global leaderboard, currently MIT is in first with 12,236 points, Universidade Téchnica de Lisboa in second with 9,804, and the National University of Singapore in third with 9,434 points. I cant even fathom how many points these guys have.
Last night the Old Spice guy walked in on my dreams. He told me he had side adventures all the time, and he needed a sidekick. And I was like, ohhhh shiiitt. And he was like, yeaahhhhhh. And then we shot off into space on a rainbow made of twizzler’s and Emma Watson’s Brown ID card. And then I woke up. And then I was like, ugh, I shouldn’t work so hard.
On a completely unrelated note, Tess Minter ’12 calls in to beg:
