Peek at the Week: September 26

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

In Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Roger Rabbit said, “A laugh can be a very powerful thing. Why, sometimes in life, it’s the only weapon we have.”

For many of us, we’re at the point where the semester is in full swing. Workloads are increasing, and you might be beginning to feel the effects of the semester. With midterms around the corner, it can be easy to get overwhelmed, overworked, and burnt out. (I know I feel like I’m practically army-crawling my way towards Fall Break).

With all of this in mind, try to give yourself a moment to laugh. Whether it’s a funny TikTok, one of your favorite movies, or a moment with your friends, a little laughter in your day can have the power to relieve some weight off your shoulders.

HOLIDAYS THIS WEEK

Do you ever feel like you’re absolutely confused in class and your professor is making no sense? Well, on Wednesday, Sept. 28, you can be festive and celebrate National Ask a Stupid Question Day by, as the name suggests, asking a stupid question. I promise you that we all ask stupid questions, and sometimes it’s even the smart thing to do.

For all our coffee-drinking readers, this week holds not 1, but 2 coffee-related holidays. Thursday, Sept. 29 is National Starbuck’s Day, and Saturday, Oct. 1 is International Coffee Day. Celebrate by picking up your favorite brew at your favorite shop. (Holy Grounds and Dunkin’ are definitely on my list of stops for the week).

Sept. 30 is International Podcast Day, a perfect excuse to tune out the world and listen to your favorite podcast. Although I’m not a huge podcast fan myself, but I might check out a new true crime podcast or the latest episode of The Leftovers.

Saturday is also International Music Day. Celebrate by listening to your go-to album, by checking out a new artist, or, if you’re musically gifted, playing an instrument you enjoy. (I’ll probably still be riding the wave of the My Chemical Romance reunion, jamming to The Skallywags, and relaxing with Hozier).
