Peek at the Week: September 4

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Albus Dumbledore said, “It is not our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices.”

Happy Monday, Wildcats! As you embark on your journey through this new semester, remember that while your abilities make up a part of you, your choices matter infinitely more. Your choices are what demonstrate who you are or who you will be.

You can choose to be an ambitious student. You can choose to be a good friend or a caring peer. You can choose to be a dedicated athlete or artist. There are countless choices you could make. So, start making the choices, no matter how small, that will get you to where you want to be.

HOLIDAYS THIS WEEK

As the long weekend likely clued you in on, today, Sept. 4, is Labor Day. Here are some other holidays coming up this week:

Falling conveniently on Labor Day, today is also Eat an Extra Dessert Day. In the spirit of the long weekend, enjoy a sweet treat of your choosing guilt-free.

Wednesday, Sept. 6, is Fight Procrastination Day. It’s easier to start out building better habits early in the semester than it is to in crunch time, and procrastination is definitely a hard habit to break. Still, even if it’s just for the day, try to work on an assignment before the due date. You might even give yourself some extra hours to enjoy on the weekend.

For any movie lovers, Actors’ Day is this Friday, Sept. 8. If you’re in the mood for something lowkey, this is the perfect opportunity for a movie night. If you need something to watch, you can look through Falvey’s DVD and online movie collections for some flicks with all your favorite stars.

Sunday, Sept. 10 is Grandparents’ Day. If you have a grandparent in your life that you cherish, now is a great time to show your appreciation in your own special way. On a personal note, I am very grateful for all of my grandparents, living and passed.


Annie Stockmal is a second-year graduate student in the Communication Department and Graduate Assistant in Falvey Library.
