Peek at the Week: January 16

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

In The Alchemist, Paul Coelho wrote, “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

Welcome back, Wildcats! I hope your Winter Break was just what you needed to start this semester off with optimism and  excitement. Perhaps it’s your second semester as a Wildcat, like me, or perhaps it’s your last. Either way, make it a semester to remember. While positive affirmations and manifestations might not completely change what’s out of our control, they might break down some of the mental blocks we didn’t know we created for ourselves.

HOLIDAYS THIS WEEK

As many of you know, today, Jan. 16, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day commemorating the iconic Civil Rights activist and remembering the courage of those who fought for the civil rights of millions of Americans. (Check out our latest Weekend Recs for some awesome MLK Day recs if you haven’t already). Here are some other holidays coming up this week:

This Thursday, Jan. 19, is National Popcorn Day, a day for enjoying this buttery, salty treat. Celebrate by popping some popcorn (without burning it, or your room/housemates will suffer with the smell) or by swinging by the store. If you’re looking for something to do off-campus, this could be the perfect excuse to see a movie.

Friday, Jan. 20, is National Coffee Break Day. Feeling like Winter Break was a little too short? Take a break from studying, work, or whatever is preoccupying your brain and have a cup of your preferred coffee. (Although I’m a diehard iced coffee person, this weather has me considering switching to hot). And, if you’re doing work in Falvey, you can swing by Holy Grounds for some convenient caffeine.

For all the Sriracha and Tabasco lovers, National Hot Sauce Day is this Sunday, Jan. 22. If you’re in the mood for some spicy food, celebrate the holiday by accompanying a meal with your go-to hot sauce.

Sunday is also the first day of Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the Water Rabbit. For anyone celebrating, I wish you a good and happy new year!
