Peek at the Week: March 11


In Little Women, Louisa May Alcott wrote, “I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.”

Life is full of storms, and college is no different. Whether it’s academic struggles or friendship problems or anything in between, we’re all bound to experience our fair share of turbulence. But we all must learn to sail our own ships through the storm. Learn what makes you happy and what makes the bad days worth it. If you become an adaptable sailor ready to handle anything life throws at you, you’ll cruise through choppy waters with ease.

Thursday, Mar. 14, is International Ask a Question Day. Asking questions is a vital part of the learning process, and although we sometimes tell ourselves otherwise, no “dumb question” is actually a dumb question. So, let your curiosity run wild and look for answers to your questions today.

It might happen to fall on a Friday night, but World Sleep Day is this Friday, Mar. 15. Take it from a former insomniac, sleep deprivation is not great for your brain. Whether you go to bed early, sleep in an extra hour, or take a power nap, try to get some extra Zs. After a good night’s sleep, you can also celebrate Maple Syrup Saturday, falling on Mar. 16, the next morning with a delicious breakfast topped with this sweet syrup.

As you likely already know, this Sunday, Mar. 17, is St. Patrick’s Day. While this holiday started as a celebration of the feast day of Ireland’s patron saint St. Patrick, it has now evolved into a day that celebrates Irish heritage and history (and also partying). In addition to any of the festivities you partake in, you can also check out last year’s Weekend Recs on Irish Media.
