Peek at the Week: January 30


In The Imitation Game, Christopher Morcom, played by Jack Bannon, said, “Sometimes it’s the very people who no one imagines anything of who do the things no one can imagine.”

Happy Monday, Wildcats! Some people tend to think of themselves as being ordinary, something that is both a moderate blessing and an irksome curse. Sometimes, we drift into the above average or below average ranges, but it averages out to being ordinary, which can get in the way of our big dreams.

But, sometimes, it’s the most ordinary of people, those that are relatively unsuspecting, who do the things that others never thought to do. So, even if you feel like you’re the most average person on the face of this planet, dream big. You never know what you might accomplish.

For anyone with a semi-sweet tooth, National Dark Chocolate Day is this Wednesday, Feb. 1. Celebrate the holiday with some of your favorite dark chocolate treats. My personal favorite is the Ghirardelli 72% Cacao Dark Chocolate bar because it’s bittersweet with a hint of cherry. Or, if you’re in the mood for something to warm you up, Swiss Miss’s Dark Chocolate hot cocoa hits the spot.

Wednesday is also Change Your Password Day. Although it’s definitely not the most fun holiday out there, it’s certainly a helpful one. Even if we hate the change in our routine, it’s always good to change up your passwords every so often. It keeps you and your data safer.

For any avian fans, Friday, Feb. 3, is Feed the Birds Day. You can celebrate this holiday by putting out some black oil sunflower seed or peanuts for your local birds. (You can find a list of things that are safe or unsafe for birds here). Interested in the world of suburban birds? I would highly recommend Welcome to Subirdia by John Marzluff, available online through Falvey.

Saturday, Feb. 4, is Sweater Day. Whether or not the all-knowing groundhog on Groundhog Day, which is Thursday, Feb. 2, predicts a long, cold winter or the beginnings of spring, it’s bound to be chilly on Saturday. So, to celebrate this holiday, cozy up in a warm sweater.
