“Then eventually, you reach something so esoteric that you can imagine a little notification: ‘Congratulations! You’ve reached no-man’s-land!’”
Not exactly the kind of champagne bath we’re talking about…
Welcome to the tenth and final installment of THESISCRAZY 2017! We’ve had a blast talking to 45 (!!!) thesis-writers this year representing 23 different departments! AMST and FILM tied for the lead with 7 THESISCRAZY interviews each! Not quite the 95 theses of Martin Luther, but it still beat Wesleying’s record of 40 interviews in 2016! You can check out all nine previous THESISCRAZY 2017 posts here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here (phew!) and you can find the entire archive here.
As you’re making the final finishing touches and mentally preparing for the champagne bath you’re about to take at 4 PM on the Olin Steps (Maybe your first bath in days? We’re not judging!), check out these final interviews!
Congratulations to everyone who embarked on the wild journey of writing a thesis this year! (And if you’re an underclassperson reading these, we hope to get to interview you when it’s your turn to go through this special hell!)
“Like, fuck academic excellence. Honestly.”
This afternoon we’ve got a triple double-feature for you: three great interviews, each with two great thesis-writers in their final stages of bewilderment, stress, and manic laughter! You can also read back on parts 1-8 here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here and you can find the entire archive here.
Enjoy the triple double-feature after the jump!
“I’ve been telling people that my brain is somewhere splattered on some pavement that I’ve been trying to find.”
It’s the last full day of thesis-ing for most of you (more on that later), and you can feel the stress gathering in the air–or is that the humidity that chose to accompany the lovely spring temperatures? Either way, we’ve got plenty of interviews left to distract you from last-minute edits, frantically writing acknowledgments, and all the other stuff you have to do before you hit print one last time. And if these aren’t enough, you can also read back on all seven parts of THESISCRAZY 2017 here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, and you can find the entire archive here.
If you’re a thesis writer who’s feeling really wild, and you really want an interview before the pearly gates close at 4 PM tomorrow, you can email us at staff[at]wesleying[dot]edu with your name, major, workspace/carrel number, and times you can meet today, and there’s ~a chance~ (no promises) we’ll be able to make the magic happen before 4 PM tomorrow. But you should probably be working anyways.
Check out the interviews after the cut:
“My advisor is like, ‘You have time to figure that out!’ and I’m like, ‘I don’t feel like that is the case!’”
with my editor privileges i would like to interject here that this is the timeline of hawai?i history in my carrel that i made entirely out of post-it notes, with events color coded by type. —maya, 4/17/17 1:23 PM
What a knockout group of THESISCRAZY seniors to start off your Monday morning! In today’s installment, we have one of our fearless editors, a double-thesis-writer, housemates, and more! You can catch up with our past THESISCRAZY 2017 posts here, here, here, and here, and here, and you can find the entire archive here.
Prepare to be blown away after the jump!
“I don’t know. I’m a mess! I don’t know what I’m doing!”
I spent the last 20 minutes looking up funny euphemisms for sex to make a title to this post. (I was unsuccessful.) If you’re looking for something equally procrastinate-y to do on this fine Sunday night, look no further. Today we bring to you four fine specimens of thesis writers. Remember, Wescam is just around the corner ;) If you want, check out the previous THESISCRAZY 2017 posts here, here, here, and here to start scheming for senior week, or our entire THESISCRAZY archive here.
If you’re looking to be immortalized in THESISCRAZY (and potentially Wescam) fame, email staff(at)wesleying(dot)org with your name, major, workspace/carrel number, and times you can meet before April 19th.
More theses and craziness after the jump!
“The last three days I’ve been working straight 9-5, and I mean 9 AM to 5 AM!”
Hello crazy thesis-ers and also crazy other people reading this! In this third installment of THESISCRAZY 2017, I bring to you the longest interview I’ve seen in my tenure at Wesleyan, clocking in at just over 20 minutes, and the shortest, at just under four. You can check my unscientific assertion for yourself by reading our archive here and checking out the first two posts of the series here and here.
If you’re interested in being interviewed (preferably for shorter than 20 minutes and longer than 4–eight to ten is usually the sweet spot!), email staff(at)wesleying(dot)org with your name, major, workspace/carrel number, and times you can meet before April 19th.
Hold onto your hats for this whirlwind of a ride after the jump!
“I thought I had my shit together…I clearly did not have my shit together.”
Hello, and welcome to the second installment of THESISCRAZY 2017, where we talk to stressed thesis writers about the thing that has been taking up all their headspace for the past 8-12 months (because what could go wrong with that?). You can check out THESISCRAZY 2017 Part 1 here, read the THESISCRAZY archive here, and stay tuned for more THESISCRAZY posts before April 19th.
Are you a senior thesis writer who wants something other to do other than staring at your computer screen and running to Weshop every 20 minutes on “study breaks”? Email staff(at)wesleying(dot)org with your name, major, workspace/carrel number, and times you can meet before April 19th.
Get your thesis fix after the jump.
Don’t post your theses on church doors like this n00b, let Wesleying post about your thesis online instead!
If you’re a senior who is reading this post because you’re procrastinating working on your thesis, it’s your lucky day: We want to interview YOU about your thesis and deteriorating mental state (and your plans for April 19th, besides chugging a big ass bottle of Andre) for Wesleying’s very hip-hop-happening THESISCRAZY feature.
To see past THESISCRAZY posts, here’s the archive (which is perfect for anyone looking to not do their work today):
Do you want to join the ranks of these esteemed alums? Email staff(at)wesleying(dot)org and include your name, potential times to meet up before April 19th, and where you’re doing your thesis/want to chat (carrel number, name of building/room where you work, home, etc.).
“April 12th! Oh my God! I’m just going to crawl into a hole and sleep.”
Welcome to part 8 of THESISCRAZY 2016, the series where we interview seniors who are losing their shit because their theses are due TODAY at 4PM (GASP). You already know the drill, but read parts one through seven of this year’s installment here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. And THESISCRAZY archives are here.
OKAY GO GO GO.
Plans for April 12th: “I’m supposed to actually run a TA session that night, so I don’t know what’s gonna happen.”
Welcome back haha. This is Part 6 of THESISCRAZY 2016, our annual charade of entering small cubby-like rooms with lots of books and asking thesis writers cool questions about their cool theses. See parts 1 through 5 here, here, here, here, and here wooo! See our THESISCRAZY archives too.
Now, read about grave robberies, climate change, and syphilis:
