Peek at the Week: September 12


In Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery wrote, “Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet.”

Although it rarely seems like it, college is a time of and for mistakes. Mistakes are often fundamental to learning, both in life and in education. But mistakes often feel bigger and more insurmountable than they are.

Give yourself some grace. Your mistakes are opportunities to learn, and tomorrow is a new day.

Celebrate National Day of Encouragement today by saying something nice to someone or (sometimes a harder task) yourself. Today is a day for good vibes, and good vibes only!

For everyone with a sweet tooth, Tuesday is International Chocolate Day. Whether you prefer dark, milk, or white, grab yourself a chocolate treat (hint: Holy Grounds at Falvey is a great place for some chocolate sweets).

If you’re a superhero fan, Batman Day is this Sunday, Sept. 17. You can celebrate by binging your favorite Batman movies, shows, or comics. If you’ve never watched a single Batman movie in your life, The Dark Knight is probably the most well-received and, in my opinion, the all-around best. If you’re already a seasoned fan, check out Joseph McCabe’s 100 Things Batman Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, of course, available through Falvey.
