THESISCRAZY 2016 (Part 5): Everything’s an Iceberg

“Yeah, I just think in terms of sediment. I think my brain’s turning into sediment.”


Welcome back to THESISCRAZY 2016. At this point, you probably know the drill, but here’s the quick spiel: We interview crazed mutants thesis writers as they race against the clock to get their theses done by April 12th. You can check out the other installments of this year’s THESISCRAZY here, here, here, and here. The THESISCRAZY archive is here.

Time to talk to stressed people after the jump.

Congrats, you’ve made it to part 3 of THESISCRAZY 2016, the annual Wesleying series where we force thesis-writing seniors to come out of their anti-social snake people caves carrels and talk to us about what they’re working on. You can read the other THESISCRAZY 2016 interviews here and here, and you can check out the THESISCRAZY archives here.

Let’s talk theses and shit after the jump.

Welcome back to THESISCRAZY 2016, 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 2016 Part 1 here, read the THESISCRAZY archive here, and stay tuned for more THESISCRAZY posts before April 12th.

Are you a senior thesis writer who wants something other to do other than staring at your computer screen and eating food from Weshop’s candy aisle? Email staff(at)wesleying(dot)org with your name, major, workspace/carrel number, and times you can meet before April 12th.

Onward, folks.

Hello, hello and welcome to the first installment of THESISCRAZY 2016. We’ve got some great interviews in here, so sit back, relax, and have an existential crisis over whether or not writing a thesis is a actually good idea. Oh, and you can see THESISCRAZY interviews from previous years by clicking here.

If you’re a senior writing a thesis and you want to commiserate about your thesis poops and most traumatic thesis experiences, email us at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org and include your name, major, workspace info (carrel, lab, etc.), and times you can meet before April 12th.

Thesis-ing is after the jump.

Tell Us How Much You Hate Writing Your Thesis For THESISCRAZY 2016


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 12th, 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):

Interested in being interviewed? Email staff(at)wesleying(dot)org and include your name, potential times to meet up before April 12th, and where you’re doing your thesis/want to chat (carrel number, name of building/room where you work, home, etc.).

Thanks to 2013 Wesleying for letting us steal this photo. [http://wesleying.org/2013/04/12/thesiscrazy-part-5-we-swear-this-is-the-last-one/#more-99523]

For part two of THESISCRAZY 2K15, we interview some seniors making their way though the final week of thesis-writing, and coping by crying cathartically and spending a lot of time on the Internet. To relive old times, Part One is here and THESISCRAZY features from previous years are here.

If you’d like to procrastinate and set up an interview, cry vaguely into the wind or email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org!

aren’t you excited for this to happen in LESS THAN A WEEK

Welcome to the first installment of THESISCRAZY 2015, in which Wesleying interviews thesis writers in various states of instability, horror, and sleep deprivation during the two weeks before theses are due. Check out THESISCRAZY features from previous years here.

Places to Eat and Other Areas Open during Spring Break


Beautiful Spring Day, March 20, 2012 c/o Wesleyan University

It’s Spring Break! If you’re on campus during any of it, here are all the facility hours you need to know to get by. Luckily, weshop is open on weekdays (not weekends though), as is Red & Black. The library has shorter hours and the fitness center is open only on weekdays. The package room is open too. Full hours are after the jump.

To thesis writers who will probably be at Wes for some of break, good luck!!!
