How is it that Spooky Season is upon us??? Wasn’t it just April????
Just like every fucking other thing in our lives, Halloween is going to look a bit different this year. Gone is the opportunity to wear lingerie and call it a costume while walking around in sub-thirty degree weather, and chasing a shot down with fun sized candy bars loses a bit of its luster when you can only do it alone in your dorm.
Wesleying to the rescue! As we have in years past, we’re giving you the opportunity to showcase your Halloween lewks! Submit a picture of your costume here, and then we’ll feature you in a post later in the week. Bonus points if your costume is… topical to the current situation, or if you find a clever way to incorporate your mask. Socially distant/COVID-podded costumes also welcome!
Around a week ago, I sent out an SOS for study abroad blogs (read: abrogs) from the hundreds of students hanging out overseas this semester. This week, there are five awesome submissions to distract you from studying for your midterms. Click at your own risk, because I can’t promise you’ll emerge from the abrog vortex any time soon. Also, if you’re a Wesleyan student overseas and you haven’t sent us your abrog yet, we still want it! Email us (staff[at]wesleying[dot]org) with the subject line “ABROAD BLOG”!
Hey you. Yeah, I’m talking to you. You’re in a foreign land,
immersing yourself in a new place and learning about super rad cultures legally buying alcohol as a twenty-year-old. And we want to know about it. Besides that, we just really miss you, and we know you miss bragging to us about how cool your life is. So basically–send us your study-abroad blogs abrogs right now. We’ll show you off and make sure the entire Wesleyan community jealous of you.
If you’re documenting your abroad experiences on a blog of any kind (i.e. WordPress, Blogspot, Twitter, Tumblr, Flicker, Instagram), we want to know about it. Fill our inbox (staff[at]wesleying[dot]org) with links to your blog and we’ll showcase you on Wesleying! Make sure the subject of your email is “ABROAD BLOG,” and don’t forget to write a bit about what you’re doing this fall. You rock!
Sunny in Sydney? Balmy in Barcelona? Death in Venice?
Let’s face it: between the media firestorm that Senior Praguetails incited and the dozens of incredible concerts week in and week out, Wesleyan has been a pretty boring place this semester.
So, to all the students abroad this spring: Won’t you fill us in? If you’re keeping a blog of your experiences, give us a shout. We’ll advertise for you here on Wesleying.
Many abroad-in-the-fall students responded to our call last semester, checking in from such disparate places as Copenhagen, Haifa, and Taipei. Let’s keep the abrog tradition alive.
Email us at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org with the link to your blog. Be sure to make the subject header “Study Abroad Blog” so we don’t think it’s spam. Feel free to attach a brief explanation of the circumstances of your semester abroad: name of your program, places you’ve visited, koalas you’ve hugged, etc. You can also let us know if you’d like to remain anonymous when we post it.
