Peek at the Week: December 11


In The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown wrote, “Today is today, but there are many tomorrows.”

Happy Last Day of Classes and Finals Week, Wildcats! Today and the coming days will likely be challenging, tiring, and overwhelming. It’s a practically universal (and miserable) college experience.

But if it helps to get you through this rough week or so, remember that there are so many more tomorrows, and past Dec. 19, those tomorrows are looking a whole lot better. So, push through the stress, try your best, and just think about how good you’ll feel during winter break.

Need a sugary pick-me-up during finals? This Wednesday is Ice Cream Day. It might be cold outside, but that doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying a cup or cone of your favorite ice cream. I’ll be enjoying some pumpkin ice cream while it’s still in-season.

Thursday, Dec. 14 is More Good Today Day, a day dedicated to acts of kindness and charity. If you’re feeling generous, do a small (or large) act of kindness to brighten someone’s day. If you’re looking for a way to help others, you could also participate in Falvey’s donation drive for those experiencing homelessness and addiction, ending Thursday, Dec. 15. For more info on the donations and what you can donate, check out our blog here.

Friday, Dec. 15 is National Regifting Day. Regifting, when done thoughtfully, can actually be a good thing. Sometimes, somebody gives you something (or you buy something on a whim) that will just collect dust and not spark joy in your life. It might not be your thing, but it could be the perfect gift for one of your loved ones. So, if you have a thoughtful regifting idea, don’t let the guilt stop you. You might just help save something from ending up in a landfill.

For any breakfast food lovers, National Maple Syrup Day is this Sunday, Dec. 17. Whether you’re putting it on your pancakes, french toast, oatmeal, or sausage, you can celebrate today by enjoying some maple syrup (even if it’s the fake kind). After finals this week (and any you might still have), you deserve a breakfast of champions.
