Peek at the Week: April 10


In Finding Nemo, Dory said, “When life gets you down, do you wanna know what you’ve gotta do? Just keep swimming.”

Happy Monday, Wildcats! I hope you’re enjoying a relaxing, stress-free Easter Break! With only about a month left in the semester, we’re in the home stretch now. You only have to get through a few more weeks before exams are over and Summer Break begins (or, if you’re graduating this Spring, before you walk across that stage).

At the risk of using a quote that reignites an inescapable earworm that may have followed you through life since 2003, even as the semester gets more difficult and stressful, just keep swimming.

Today, Apr. 10, is National Siblings Day, a day to appreciate (or lovingly bully) your siblings, by blood, law, or choice. And if you don’t have any siblings, Wednesday, Apr. 12 is your day to shine, as it’s National Only Child Day.

Wednesday, Apr. 12, is D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) Day. Although I probably wouldn’t recommend actually dropping everything, it’s a great opportunity to curl up somewhere cozy and crack open a good book. If you’re out of books on your list, you are always welcome to stop by Falvey and browse the stacks.

Saturday, Apr. 15 is World Art Day, a day to let your inner art-lover run wild and appreciate the art around you. If you’re feeling especially festive, you can make some art of your own. If you’re looking for a fun weekend activity, stop by an art gallery. If you’re looking to spend the day off-campus, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is always worth visiting. If you’re looking for something more local, Villanova’s on-campus gallery is a great way to see some art from artists in our own community, or you can take an art class (perhaps one with wine, if you’re of-age) with some friends. If you’re into (slightly) more modern art forms that are more than simply visual, Saturday is, fittingly, also Anime Day.

In a charitable mood? Sunday, Apr. 16, is Good Deeds Day, a day to do something good for someone else (without the intention of recognition). Whether its donating your time or money to a good cause, doing something kind for someone who needs some help, or even picking up some trash on your way to class, put some positive energy into the world by doing a good deed.
